Thanks to the publisher & Netgalley for the complimentary e-ARC. All opinions provided are my own.
This was a first for me: reading an already married couple as the stars of a supernatural-investigating fantasy & did I like it!
Author Josiah Bancroft offers a rich imagination in The Hexologists, writing an unpredictable tale flush with mystery & mayhem.
Our protagonists Warren & Iz have a fascinating, loving dynamic, each bringing things to the table that make the other feel secure despite how formidable/unflappable they might appear to others at first glance.
The book opens with a member of the king’s staff approaching Iz & Warren with the mystery of the king-who-has-apparently-gone-mad. Iz & Warren are Hexologists, which is a form of magic—& they decide to take the case even though it’s not their usual cup of tea.
Mysteries abound in this book & though it becomes a bit convoluted, it was fun & engaging & I enjoyed following their investigation with its many twists & turns (& its moments of humor) a great deal.
The ending started dragging for me somewhat but this is an entertaining book written by someone who clearly delights in the genre & I really enjoyed it.
