Arcane Circle by Linda Robertson

Arcane Circle by Linda Robertson
2010, Pocket Books
Series: Book 4 of Persephone Alcmedi

Synopsis:  Even magic can’t solve everything. . . . After facing down the forces of Fairy in mortal combat, Persephone Alcmedi still must deal with the aftermath. Not only does Seph now possess deadly secrets she must hide from the arcane and mundane world alike, but the dozens of magical creatures who’ve taken up residence behind her cornfield need food and shelter, and there’s still her foster daughter Beverly’s tenth birthday party to plan.

And that’s not all. . . . Seph’s boyfriend Johnny has revealed himself as the wærewolf Domn Lup, and the ruler of the wære world is en route from Romania to make sure Johnny really is the “king” he claims to be. But Johnny’s hiding a dangerous secret: his magic is locked in his mysterious tattoos. He and Seph must find a way for him to reclaim it—fast—despite those who have no intention of letting Johnny gain his full powers. Seph knows that, in the arcane world, strength is always a necessity and power must be constantly proven, but how far is she willing to go to succeed . . . and at what cost?

The Good: While helping Johnny search for his past, Seph is forced to face her own - and it's fantastic. The magic in this book is phenomenal. I'm really beginning to appreciate the depth Robertson goes into to make it accessible to readers without making it seem too basic. The resolution of this book is perfect, leaving enough up in the air to make me desperate to read the next book while still being satisfying.

The Bad: Nothing bad here. Another perfect book.
