Pre-Review Query – and this must be asked – HH, hand over heart, no riddles, no diversions – nuckalavee, Afflicted, or Mage – How … How did you make me adore Belle? Subliminal magic messages? I’m beginning to question my good sense.
Red Hawk is Helen Harper’s final book in the author’s A Charade of Magic series – and as finales go – Success!!! Hummingbird, Nightingale, and Red Hawk abound with unforgettable characters, ones that you empathize with, feel their joy, applaud their bravery, and shudder at the injustices committed against them – characters that you despise and want crushed beneath a daemon’s heel – the harsh, wily, and kind – they are each enthralling in their own way. Harper places them all in Scotland where every citizen is oppressed by cruel and power-hungry Mages. Mairi soldiers on in this dystopian world, a world where she believed the Mages were the biggest bads in need of a takedown. She was wrong. Everyone was wrong. Red Hawk unearths the rot plaguing Scotland – and it isn’t the flesh-eating Afflicted. I love a series that keeps its secrets!
It’s OVER, but if you haven’t read this series yet, I’ve attached Amazon links for all three books below. I’m dying to know what my friends and subscribers think of Harper’s latest works so LET ME KNOW! If you would like to receive an email when I post new reviews, Subscribe Now!
