Because Jolie Wilkins is the best witch around.
Summary taken from Goodreads:
Jolie thinks she’s seen it all, but life continues to spring surprises. The latest shocker? She’s just been crowned Queen of the Underworld. Jolie may possess a rare gift for reanimating the dead, but she doesn’t know the first thing about governing disparate factions of supernatural creatures. She can barely maintain order in her own chaotic personal life, which is heading into a romantic tailspin.
First there’s sexy warlock Rand, the love of her life, from whom Jolie is hiding a devastating secret. Then there’s Sinjin, a darkly seductive vampire and Jolie’s sworn protector—though others suspect he harbors ulterior motives. As the two polar opposite yet magnetic men vie for Jolie’s affection, she must keep her wits about her to balance affairs of state and affairs of her heart. Overwhelmed, under pressure, and longing for love, Jolie decides it’s time to take charge—and show everyone that this queen won’t take jack.
Oh Jolie. You never fail to disappoint. This novel brings us back to the “present” and Jolie has a lot of decisions to make. She needs to stand up, tell Rand the truth, and confront Sinjin. Stuff just couldn’t get more awkward and exhausting for her. She needs to decide whether or not she wants to be queen, what to do about the people in her life that seem to be making decisions behind her back, and really she needs to slap Rand in the face so he can get his stuff together. The novel ends with a big bang and made me smile and then gasp in surprise. I can’t get enough of the devilish Sinjin, the handsome and good hearts Rand and the craziness that is Jolie. I need to know what happens...I’m reading this series till the end!
Overall (Writing style, story line, and general):
Overall the story was wonderful like all the others in the series. I’m captivated by Jolie who is fighting to have a normal life while falling for the supernatural world that H.P. Mallory has created. The writing was easy to follow and as always there were many funny parts. I find the world is so vivid that it could almost be real and I’m tell you...it’s sucking me in.
