Review: Dark Vow by Shona Husk

Jan 21, 2013

Dark Vow
Book 1
Arcane Series

Jaines Cord plans to kill the man who murdered her husband, even though killing a Bounty Hunter is said to be impossible. One bullet took away her livelihood, her home and her love. One bullet made by her. Fired from the gun she completed for the Arcane Bounty Hunter.

Obsidian wears the scars of disobeying the powerful Arcane Union. He barely escaped with his life and now lives quietly, in a town the lawmen forgot. When Jaines arrives asking too many questions, he's faced with a decision. Help her or run…again. Obsidian knows that if he flees he'll always be looking over his shoulder. His name is one of the first on the Bounty Hunter's death list.

Yet when Obsidian is offered an opportunity to stop the stone taking over his body in exchange for retrieving the gun, he asks Jaines for her help. Now Jaines must choose: a dead man's vengeance or a living man's hope?

I gave this book a 
Dark Vow by Shona Husk sends readers to a magical western-esk world with new and interesting elements.  Husk has built a world both unique and appealing.  The Arcane society is blanketed in mystery, lending an air  of  intrigue to this new world.  I  enjoyed the story but wanted a bit more romance, passion. The emotional journey Jaines took in the book seemed to take place at an unnatural pace.  I will definitely read Dark Secrets, the next story in the series, a novella, in order to learn more about the Arcanes.
