Monsters with a taste for children are nothing new, but fairy tales never mentioned this nightmarish predator. Rue has her hands full tracking the creature hunting the streets of Charleston, but a call from home divides her attention—and her loyalties.

A stranger has come to Hollis Apothecary, asking questions that prickle the hairs on her nape, but she can’t abandon the victims based only on a bad feeling. The pit in her stomach only grows when the stranger takes a hostage and makes his demands. He wants to talk to Rue, face to face. Or else. What he has to say will change her life, and her perception of her past, forever.


This starts with Rue and co trying to solve the mystery of children being murdered by an unknown supernatural. A supernatural that is seeming to dismember the children after taking them from various locations in the local area but without leaving any traces. There's also been a mystery character hanging around her shop back home but she's determined to solve the case before she deals with him.

I do enjoy this series. The world building is great, the back story of the characters is interesting and the romance between Rue and Asa is cute. I also love her relationship with Clay and Colby and even Aedan is growing on me a lot.

Things take a big leap forward in the romance department with this one - it has been 4 books now so about time! - and Rue and Asa finally get around to having sex! It seems to have taken them an age but their relationship has been super cute with the odd crazy Rue/Asa-is-mine-don't-touch-them scene thrown in. 

As for the overall plot of the series, I believe we may be coming to an end soon with that surprise character's appearance right at the end and their revelation of what they intend to do. I'm so intrigued by what's going to end up happening with this motley crew and can't wait to see where the series will go.
