I wasn’t too sure how this novel was going to play out, at first. I loved Ms. Vincent’s Shifter series. Once I got into it, I couldn’t put it down. Ms. Vincent captivates your imagination with mythical creatures you know and love. Werewolves, Siren’s, Djinn, Trolls, Minotaurs the list is extensive.
The main character, Delilah Marlow witnesses cruelty to one of the attractions at the Metzger’s Menagerie, which is a traveling carnival containing Cryptids (Mythical creatures) by the hand of one of the handlers. Her reaction is shocking to everyone she knows, including herself.
Delilah finds herself stripped of her human rights. Her job, home and even her name, taken from her. This novel deals with the issues of how people treat things they don’t understand. It presents the darker side of human nature and how some of the handlers mistreat their charges.
I loved this book and can’t wait for a sequel
