House Of Cards by CE Murphy

The Negotiator Trilogy, Book 2

First of all. That is clearly a long-haired white woman on the cover of this book and I do not like that at all. However, it doesn't change the fact that Margrit is not white and the author continues to remind you of that like you've never seen a black person in your life (or mixed with black and white in Margrit's case). I'm gonna let that go for now before I get mad at this book.

Straight up, the book was great. I enjoyed every word of it (except for being reminded that she's black) and can't wait to start book 3. The House of Cards is Janx's establishment and at the end of the book, that place basically comes crumbling. We meet a Hawaiian selkie with a good amount of power who brings Cara Delaney back into our minds eye if even just for a little while.

Margrit is an excellent negotiator. She's had to play 5 sides since book 1 and she gets better in book 2. However, I gotta tell you, things didn't go the way I thought they would and that was just fine with me. There's more mind spinning negotiating going on from every side of the fence in this book. You gotta stay on your toes and don't even blink while reading it because you'll miss something. So much went on in this book that I really can't tell you a thing. BUT I WILL SAY ... Grace is ... Yea I don't know. We'll probably find out about her in book 3.

Enjoy it as much as I did.

5 Stars
