My rating: 4 of 5 stars
John Charming is a former modern-day Knights Templar; a group dedicated to keeping the supernatural community in line. The problem is he is also an abomination. His mother was bitten by a werewolf when she was pregnant with him. Years later he began showing signs of becoming a werewolf but never actually shifting and needed to run from those who trained him. However, his oath magically obligates him to continue to keep the monsters in line. Now he finds himself helping the beautiful vampire huntress and her friends in preventing a vampire hive killing spree, while not drawing the attention of the Knights Templar.
I really enjoyed Charming. It has an interesting plot and wonderful characters. Elliott James does an outstanding job at keeping you guessing about what’s going to happen next as well as who can be trusted.
I especially like John’s personality. His comments are priceless. He makes an exceptional main character who I look forward to reading more about in future Pax Arcana novels.
This was the first book I read by Elliott James. He is a gifted writer. I love his humor. He kept me entertained through the entire book.
Charming would make a great movie. It has lots of actions and mystery. I look forward to the next book in the series, Darling.
