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.
