Review of Hekate’s Chalice by Teagan Kearney
In the interests of full disclosure, I was sent a copy of this book by the author for the possibility of a review. All my reviews, good, bad, or indifferent, are based on my own opinion and from my personal viewpoint. They are also spoiler free.
Be aware that this book is a novella of only 91 pages.
Hekate’s Chalice was a delightful romp of an adventure.
I’m a sucker for a good PI story. When you create a private investigation office staffed by a variety of socially challenged individuals, none of whom like to follow orders, the plan, or rules in general, and then in addition you set it in a new urban fantasy environment where each team member has unique abilities and, of course, secrets, it just gets better.
The action started early and kept moving at a rapid clip. I appreciated that events were allowed to unfold without worrying that the reader wouldn’t be able to keep up, and without foreshadowing every twist and turn. There were a few bumps and bobbles in the story and the writing along the way but the overall story-telling made these insignificant to my enjoyment of the story itself.
I arrived at the conclusion of the story with a feeling of satisfaction, of time well spent, and of anticipation for the next story.
The Adept Solutions series will definitely be on my watch list.
I give it 4 stars.
