A Christmas Hex
on Nov. 02, 2016
I love Jordan L. Hawk's books. I've had a difficult time getting into her HexWorld series. The 13th Hex was great, but I'm still struggling through HexBreaker. That said, I LOVED A Christmas Hex.
Roland was a lovable character - very much in the vein of how Whyborne was at the beginning of the Whyborne & Griffin series. I adored his bravery, even in the face of certain death. Gus was a little more difficult to understand, but that was due to it being a short story and the fact the POV was Roland's.
I loved it. From Roland's fears about his wolf, to his career, to the reactions at the end to it. I think this book also gave me a little more understanding of the concept of 'hex'.
If you're looking for a fantastic story with familiars, witches, foiled crimes, historical reference, urban fantasy, and the holidays, this is for you.
Definitely 5 stars.

I bought this ages ago - when it came out, but until today I hadn't taken the opportunity to read it.
WOw! What I've been missing. When I first heard of it, I thought, huh - that doesn't sound like the author.. but oh it is. Slightly clueless demon with a heart of gold stuck because of his first job going awry. Enby mortal selling soul so they can beat the bad guys.
Plenty of humor and fun along with demons, perfectly infernal phraseology, and a satisfying ending I never saw coming (And I'm one of those people who can usually guess at how something will end.) One of the many reasons I adore Hawk's writing. His stuff always keeps me guessing.
A definite fun read from one of my favorite authors.
