Featuring Fallon Jones and Isabella Valdez, In Too Deep finally gives us a story about the much mentioned Fallon Jones from previous Arcane Society novels. Isabella is likeable and fun, while Fallon is a strong, intense man who runs the Jones & Jones agency with strategic focus. Isabella is a good foil for Fallon’s more sober, methodical personality.
I enjoyed the mystery and romance in this one. The paranormal aspects were interesting too, but although the psychic nature of the characters of In Too Deep, like in all the Arcane Society books, are essential to the story line, they aren’t my favorite parts. The overly mystical way Krentz writes these parts of the book bog me down in details I don’t really care to know. That’s about the only negative I have to say about the book, and it is definitely a recommended read for anyone who likes Krentz’s style: great dialogue, clever humor, mystery suspense, and romance.
The books started off strong and interesting, bringing in characters from previous Arcane Society books in a supporting capacity without overwhelming this story. The end sets up the continuing saga of the Arcane Nightshade conspiracy but that’s something I’ve come to expect from these novels. Although each story ends in a satisfactory way, the ultimate conflict between Nightshade and Arcane continues to fuel more stories in the series.
Series: An Arcane Society Novel
Next Book in the Series: The book is followed by Quicksilver with Jayne Krentz writing as Amanda Quick.
Previous Book in the Series: Midnight Crystal
Quicksilver looks to be an exciting follow up in the Looking Glass trilogy and I’m anxious to get my hands on the book. Although I generally don’t buy Jayne Ann Krentz novels in hardcover, I do buy Amanda Quick’s books for my personal library when I find them for sale at a bargain. So, here’s to some bargain hunting in my future as I await my chance to purchase Quicksilver by Amanda Quick in hardcover at a super bargain price. ;-) LOL.
