Kick the Candle (Knight Games #2) by Genevieve Jack
My rating: 4 of 5 skulls
In this installment the Candle signifies Rick not wanting to be a burden to Grateful anymore so he goes away in search of another Witch who gives him a purple candle that will undo the bond he shares with Grateful. When it burns down to nothing he will be human again and their ties will break and Grateful will be free to take another caretaker. He still loves her but time is running out. Unless she stops the candle from burning out and claims her love for Rick, he will die.
I loved this story. Grateful's dad is still unaware of the danger surrounding his daughter and is intent on selling her house to a Mr. Nokumata(sp?) and his niece. If they succeed in buying it, Grateful could end up dead because they are evil Shapeshifters and Anna is a powerful vampire who wants to get her hands on The book of flesh and bones that is buried underneath Grateful's house.
My Review for Ghost and The Graveyard (Knight Games #1)
Commitment phobic, Grateful Knight has her hands full. While she struggles to understand her new role as Monk's Hill Witch, evil isn't waiting for her to come up to speed. Not only is there an increase in supernatural activity in her ward, she’s being evicted from her home, breaking in a snarky new familiar, and trying to sort out her feelings for her metaphysically connected and immortal boyfriend, Rick.
When Grateful foils a murder at a fae bordello, she uncovers a plot by a local vampire coven to obtain a secret weapon with the power to control both the living and the dead. History is threatening to repeat itself. And if Grateful doesn't give herself over to her role completely, it could cost her everything.
