In this contemporary urban fantasy a disgraced law-enforcement agent, Wes Rockville, is reassigned to a secret government organization. His first assignment is to protect the young heiress of a billion-dollar cosmetic company, Morgan Pendragon, and uncover their diabolical plan for world domination using witchcraft.
Wes’s learning curve is steep, as he doesn’t believe in witches. The plot and the characters are cleverly written. Morgan Pendragon is a feisty witch who marches to her own tune and doesn’t rely heavily on her witchcraft unless she’s in a pinch. She’s a fun character, however, she doesn’t trust Wes.
The battle scenes are epic and full of fast action that Mr. Okon captures without a hitch. And there are many. Slowly Morgan begins to trust Wes and she starts working with him. It’s easy to see a relationship developing. The ending is satisfying and some family truths are revealed that I didn’t see coming. All in all, an entertaining story.
Only one F-bomb.
Nothing to note.
