How was it?
It’s the third book in the series and like in the other ones, there’s often a link – direct or not – between Patrick’s case and the personal challenges he faces. Here, he has a changeling case that also coincide with his larger mission about the staff, and with his old captain’s missing girlfriend. All of this could is convenient. What are that the chances that a random case he’s assigned would be connected to everything else on his plate? To his larger mission? In the hands of another writer this much coincidence could have been eye-rolling worthy but here it’s just synergy. The story comes together quite seamlessly. Turner knows how to surprise and entertain her readers. She tells the story so vividly that it’s like we’re right in the thick of it with Jono, Pat, Wade, Sage and the others. The action is again exciting, suspenseful and captivating – it’s made even better by Gary Furlough in the audiobooks.
We’ve had several examples in the previous books that Patrick’s past is relevant, but it was really nice to see his military career by way of the people he worked with highlighted here.
The Soulbound series keeps expending, with new characters, places, and pantheons being introduced but Turner walks you through thoses additions in such a sleek way it makes each book accessible as a stand alone. While it can be repetitive for some it gives some flexibility to the series.
