Enslaved by the Others by Jess Haines

Forsaken by the Others, the previous book in the H&W Investigations series, ended with a bang and this installment starts right where we left off. Shia is now in custody of Max and her future is most uncertain. Royce has absolutely no idea where she is, so any hope of rescue is out the window. She will have to step up her game if she wishes to be free again, but can she do it on her own?

I am a big fan of this urban fantasy series, and miss Haines' writing, and I was pleased once again with this new installment. Despite Enslaved by the Others being the sixth book in the series Haines managed to keep things fresh by completely out-rooting Shia. She is taken away from her allies, planted in the middle of no-where, in the grasp of her worst enemy so it's completely different from previous set up. I enjoyed witnessing her take matters in her own hands and do the best she can to get out of trouble.

Arnold finally makes a new appearance in this installment, and I was extremely happy. I've been waiting for so long to see more of him! Thank you Jess :) On the other hand, Royce is once again pretty absent from the premises, so I hope book seven will show more of Shia and Royce and their growing relationship. On that matter, Kensington hasn't bought more books for the moment, but it's probably only a question of time before it's a done deal. I urge you to purchase this novel to increase the sales and the chances of getting anymore novels in the series!

The plotline was steady and gripping and I enjoyed meeting new characters. The conclusion proved to be satisfying if not terribly surprising. If you haven't started this series yet, I strongly suggest you do. And please, don't let the not-super-appealing covers put you off, those are great novels!
