A review of “Kinky Bones: (Wildcat Wizard Book 7)” by Al K. Line

Full Disclosure – I was provided a copy of the book by the author as a member of his “A-Team”, however, have voluntarily chosen to write a review. All opinions are my own.

Something Witchy

Kinky Bones is the seventh book in the Wildcat Wizard series by author Al. K. Line and for me, this was probably the most surprising installment yet. The action takes place several months after the end of “Lost Hope”. Arthur, Vicky, and the gang have recovered and have moved on with what passes for a “quiet” life. Things are starting to go really well, and if you know anything about this series that’s usually when things start to go sideways. Arthur discovers that his and Vicky’s accounts have been wiped out and this starts a chain of events first to get the cash back, and second to find out who is responsible for the theft. When it turns out that witches are involved, Arthur must walk a fine line between clearing up this current mess without alienating George or her sister witches. If that’s not hard enough, toss in a crazed Queen Witch and an unexpected visit from “Cupid” and The Hat really has his hands full!

 

So, where Lost Hope was probably the lowest I have seen Arthur (and that’s saying a lot), Kinky Bones was a bit more upbeat. Arthur really places his focus on his family and realizes that there are more things out there than just stealing the goods and getting paid. Too late does he realize this though, as he encounters an insane “queen witch” obsessed with making sure that he meets Death for the last time. Then there’s Penelope… and for me, the jury’s still out. On the surface, she really looks like she could be a grounding force for Arthur and can bring some sanity to his world, but it just seems that her appearance was almost too perfectly timed. Also, since Cerberus was conspicuously absent in this installment, that puts me on high alert. After learning about Carmichael’s true nature a few books back, the fact that Cerberus has been quiet can only mean trouble! For now, Hat fans can take comfort in the fact that Arthur, for once, has landed himself in a good place. Let’s just see how long it lasts!
