The Lost Queen: Wilde Justice, Book 2 Kindle Edition
As Justice of the Arcana Council and an experienced artifact hunter, Tarot-reading Sara Wilde prefers to track down the missing on her own. With her latest case, unfortunately, everyone's dying to help her out.
Determined to locate the Lost Queen, a witch destined to fulfill a dark and twisted prophecy, Sara finds herself corpse-blocked at every turn. Not even the electric, provocative, and deeply powerful Magician of the Arcana Council--whose newest arcane pursuits test Sara's emotional and sensual boundaries--can help her find her mark.
Worse, Sara isn't the only hunter on the case. From the shadowy labyrinths of Budapest to the ancient churches of Moscow to the glittering lights of Los Angeles, the world's most powerful male witches are gunning for the Lost Queen, demanding her as their rightful consort. Right before they end up dead, each more gruesomely than the last. There's definitely a pattern here...and one Sara needs to break, before her own mercurial Magician becomes the prophecy's next target.
Better hope you don't find what you're looking for when you hunt The Lost Queen.

In this series Sara, as newly called Justice of the Arcana Council, must go through the backlog of cases and ensure justice prevails. Her partnership with the similarly newly called Judgement of the Arcana Council, Gamon (who everyone loves-to-hate) is developing apace. There is a delightful twist at the very end - which I will say no more on to avoid spoiling the surprise.
In this novel, Sara is searching for The Lost Queen - and is helped by friends old and new. The ever fabulous Nikki is along for the ride, and Death, The Devil, and The Magician play their parts in this mystery. This novel is more about strengthening relationships than the first one (The Red King - buy now!) but oh, how wonderful it is. For me, the hardest thing about letting the original Immortal Vegas series was potentially saying goodbye to those characters - and so it is a true delight to have them appear again in this series. Yes, even Eshe, for all that she's not my fave on the Arcana Council.
Sara has some new tricks up her sleeve, and is reminded she needs to keep developing her existing skill set, too.
You have to buy it. You just have to. Treat your self - you won't regret it.
This particular case is a weird one. She's chasing an ongoing prophecy that comes back to bite the world every 28 years. Problem is, while complaints have been submitted to Justice, they haven't been addressed in a very long time, if at all. So Sara has a backlog of complaints around this prophecy that just confuses things for her. Especially since the complaints generated about this curse/prophecy date back as far as 1542. Which is not to say that's when it began, just how far back the complaints go. So, confusion? Yeah, lots of that.
So much happens in this volume to Sara, Amraeus, Nikki, Danae and a multitude of witches across time that you need to pay attention. Jenn is going to take you through a fun house of horrors, all seeming individual in nature, yet all connecting as well. As in all good fun houses, she's going to try to get you lost to force you to you to find your own way out! Basically, she's going to force you to think!
Jenn Stark is really bringing us her A game with this continuation of Sara Wilde's life. She's making us think, and feel, and truly listen to all she has to tell us if we want to really understand where Sara's life is heading. With her new role in life, we find ourselves having to readjust our viewpoint of Sara and her crew. She certainly has had to readjust her own perspective! Be prepared to meet a whole new Sara Wilde who's role in life is so very different than her previous one as artifact hunter. She's not just learning a new profession, she's gaining wisdom in ways she never expected.
So Very Well Done, Jenn Stark! I am still a huge fan and most likely always will be, particularly if you keep this up!
I received an ARC copy of this book, but since I buy a copy as well I don't really need to tell you that this is my own review in my own words and given of my own volition. It is, but then, my reviews always are. The Lost Queen is now available for pre-order. Do yourself a favor and do that. It is so worth the read
The story is complex and exciting, fast paced without compromising content.
The characters are OUTSTANDING (as always). Each one well thought out, distinct and memorable.
The magic is a fantastic brew of old lore, mysticism, diverse mythologies and new ideas that are seamless; the experiences described well enough to make you feel the magic right along with Sara...
Fans of the series will rejoice in a return to Sara's down and dirty adventuring, fiery passion and the quirky humor we love so much.
This book (and series) is exceptional and I HIGHLY recommend it.
I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher. This doesn't affect the content of my review.
