Nicholas Pardoner, a werewolf, and Alex Finch, a vampire,
are private investigators for hire. Nick is also an
antiques dealer and Alex is a pain in the butt constantly
trying – unsuccessfully – to get into Nick’s pants. At the
moment the two are tracking a possible demon problem, at a
strip mall no less. You just never know where the icky and
sticky will appear these days.
Wicked wit fuels
the tale in Ace of Wands. This fast-paced
story narrated by a sarcastic were and a fun-loving vampire
is a pleasure to read. Ace of Wands has a few
small potholes in the plot between the discovery of evil and
the climax, but the characters make this solid
entertainment, regardless. I’m hoping to hear again from
Nick and Alex in the future.
