Once again Jordan has crafted a wonderful and entertaining world with Hexslayer. I was immersed and submerged, and nearly drowned in the rich details and exciting plot twists.
The narration is excellent. There are a lot of characters and dialogue but I only found myself questioning who was speaking once or twice. That’s really good in my opinion. It’s too often I struggle with keeping characters straight when a narrator’s reading dialogue.
I did not give this story 5 stars, which is unusual for me when it comes to Jordan's books. I felt that there was not enough romance between the two main characters. I am not talking sex, I am talking about love or emotional connection. In the other Hexworld stories I found the two men to be deeply bonded and connected, and there wasn't that dynamic present in this one.
After pondering why I felt this way I think it was because of the ending. I won't divulge any spoilers, but I didn't receive the usual satisfaction I get at the ending of a romance novel. It ended too quickly after a major incident (well really a month had passed by) but that made it even less romantic. The end felt like almost an afterthought, or tacked on to give some small closure rather than the thought processes that led the characters to their final actions. I would have enjoyed a bit more insight into the feelings and thoughts that led to the final few paragraphs. Other than that it was awesome (as I expect in her stories) Jordan is a masterful storyteller--I am looking forward to seeing the Hexworld saga continue!

Another awesome addition to this series. Historical is not my genre but I love this series. I also don't particularly care for witches but Ms. Hawk has painted an amazing world. I love the familiar/witch theme. We have seen Nick in previous books, he is Rook's brother. He hates witches because of past issues & he thinks that all they do is use familiars. There is a really good plot going on where feral familiars are being killed, in a most gruesome way. I did figure out who was behind it all but it didn't take away from the story. Nick & Jamie made a great couple. Jamie was so kind & caring about Nick's feelings. I can't wait for the next book in the series.
