Publisher's Summary

Detective Bill Quigley fell in love with the familiar Isaac the night they met. But after more than two years, it’s time to admit to himself that Isaac doesn’t return his feelings. 

Isaac knows he’s too broken by his experiences for anyone to fall in love with. Especially someone like Bill, who deserves a partner unplagued by Isaac’s nightmares and doubts. 

When children go missing from an orphanage, Bill and Isaac must work together to find them. And as years of yearning threaten to ignite into passion, they must decide once and for all whether to take a chance on love.

Finally!

I’ve wanted to read, or rather listen to Isaac’s story ever since the first book in this series. I just wanted for him to find his happily ever after, to find love and acceptance after everything he went through.

It’s been almost three years since his capture and force bonding to an evil witch (and I mean that quite literally) but the wounds are still fresh. He still has nightmares and the memories are still too present. Trying to forget he’s even stopped shifting into his familiar dog –something that’s causing him to lose a part of himself. He’s naturally wary after everything he’s been through he stays clear of everyone and everything. Somehow Bill Quigley has managed to weasel his way past Isaac’s defences and it’s something that scares him to death. After all, why would someone as good as Bill ever see in someone as broken and damaged as Isaac?

Bill for his part has been in love with Isaac ever since the night they first met. He knows Isaac is scared of relationships, yet at the same time he can’t wait for him forever. He wants someone to love him back, someone to spend his life with, and if Isaac doesn’t want to be that man, he might need to search for someone else.

Now, Hexhunter isn’t only about the dance between Isaac and Bill – entertaining as it was. Children have gone missing from an orphanage and Isaac and Bill are tasked to find them – before it’s too late. The more the dig into the case the more they realise that this case was the stuff of nightmares. And in Isaac’s case quite literally seeing as past demons turn up to cause even more trouble.

Jordan L. Hawk has once again created a vivid tale of mystery with familiars and witches. It’s not cuddly or cute – though there are several swoon worthy and sweet moments. It’s gritty, full of danger and intrigue. And if you are the type to easily scare, you might want to keep the listening to the daytime hours – or have a nightlight nearby. Because things really do go bump in the night – and I loved it!

Tristan James does accents like no other. He juggles them easily and effortlessly and it really adds another layer to an already great narration. He truly gave Isaac and Bill voices. I loved how he made them both come alive, that you could feel the love between them both, but also the wall between them that Isaac erected. His fear of bonding, his feelings for Bill, his memories were so tangible in James’ voice that you felt them as your own. He made you feel the gut punch when Bill was starting to pull away, the jealousy. At the same time Bill was equally vivid. His love for Isaac, the longing and waiting, but also the slow realisation that it might never happen for them. James brought so much feeling to their story you could see them before you.

I’m so happy that Isaac and Bill got their happily ever after, it was well deserved. Though not everything is tied up, and I’m guessing that there will be more books in this series to come. After all someone has got to stop the big bad once and for all.

More serious and grim but just as good

Hexworld master plot had always been dark and serious; on the previous books the MCs allowed a lighter, more humorous breaks here and there (especially Rook, Cicero and Malachi). We rarely get such a reprieve here. Nevertheless, I loved this book. As usual, the historical descriptions felt authentic and the mystery/crime plot was very well structured. The romance is a bit different from the previous books (in a good way) - the heroes are kept apart due to their self-doubts and low self esteem rather than dark secrets or conflicting obligations. I've found the description of Isaac's struggle with post-traumatic stress disorder both realistic and touching, and sometimes inspiring. Bill was a favorite long before this book, obviously; here he exposed a more vulnerable and insecure side. Wish we had more verbal swordplay between him and Malachi, though.
