Review: Call of the Wilde by Jenn Stark

Dec 22, 2017

Hello darkness, my old friend… 

Still recovering from an explosive family get-together, Tarot-reading mistress of the House of Swords Sara Wilde isn’t ready to return to the war on magic. Then the Magician of the Arcana Council uses her to summon an ancient Greek deity for his own devious purposes, and Sara’s suddenly up to her elbows in oversized egos and millennia-old conflicts. Conflicts that imperil the delicate balance of power between the most formidable mortals on earth and the gods who wait beyond the veil.

To keep both gods and monsters where they belong, Sara is forced to put out the first call to arms of the four Houses of Magic since the fall of Atlantis. Unfortunately, that call brings ancient enemies into the open and reveals truths about the Council–and the Magician himself–she would have preferred not to know. Worse, a brutal resurgence of violence rocks the Las Vegas Connected community and has Sara questioning everything she knows about her closest allies, while a nagging interest from Interpol evolves into a far more insidious threat. Sara’s done her best to become a team player, but with friends like these…

Better pray it’s a wrong number when you get the Call of the Wilde.



Call of the Wilde by Jenn Stark packs a punch. Much to her surprise, Sara is fitting in nicely as the leader of her house. She seems to be maneuvering the council and the other Magic Houses adeptly. As more details are revealed in this exciting series, Stark plants seeds of doubt and intrigue throughout. The delish Magician has always been secretive and manipulative, but he has stepped up his game. I can't help but wonder if his will of steel will finally break. When Sara and the Magician come together sparks fly, tensions are palpable. I can't wait to see what cards Stark is holding back from us. I need to see the Lovers card. The Magician and Sara were meant to be together.
