I was so excited to see a sequel to Deliverance Dane. I loved the academic and magical elements of this book and the glimpses into the Goodwin matriarchs, but the relationships and conflict felt flat in the modern day storyline.
Read this in one day! Rutger is a new-to-me author and I really enjoyed his style. Great pacing, an enjoyable main character, strong setting. I was surprised by a few twists. I didn‘t love the resolution, but the rest of the book was a lot of fun.
