|Fallon Jones is the head of Jones & Jones, an
investigative agency that handles paranormal crooks. Fallon sees patterns inside of chaos
which helps uncover conspiracies. He can also send power that kills. A rich, quiet,
muscular, just-the-facts maam type, Fallon is a classic romantic hero. Hes
also recovering from a relationship that went bad despite every logical reason why it
should have gone well. Everybody believes hes on the edge of sanity.
Valdez is on the run and takes shelter in the tiny town of Scargill Cove, where she finds
a job as Jones & Joness office manager. Isabella finds lost things - people,
bodies, objects. She insists on taking on a job investigating a haunted house and
discovers a serial killer and a mysterious psychic weapon.
Working together, Isabella and Fallon solve four different mysteries/questions. Each
mystery has something to do with a mechanical object like a lantern or clock. The objects
have different powers, such as they can kill or make someone unconscious. These weaponized
psychic threats make for an intriguing world to read about.
The book didnt have much action, instead a lot of long explanations about past
events. When action did happen it was cleverly written and gripping though. The romance
between Isabella and Fallon was a bit dry and boring. There was a lot of description of
their psychic powers but not enough focus on their relationship and the building of it.
They got together way too quickly and smoothly. This was a sweet book and fans of the
Arcane Society should enjoy it. It was a bit too dull for me.
