When I agreed to review this book, I didn't realize it was the 4th book in the series. That actually has made an impact for my enjoyment of the book. There were references to past events that I knew nothing about and it made for some confusing scenes.
While the book is well-written, I didn't really connect with anyone in particular. There were also a number of typos/missing words in the book. I did like Perry, the white energy being, the most although I would have liked to know more about him and how he was created. The evil AI being, APU81, was interesting especially as I got further into the book. The author did a good job of keep the tension going until the end, but I didn't find myself invested in the characters enough to read the other books.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.
When a mysterious and destructive magical force strikes near Sarasota, Florida, the chief of police assigns his best investigator and arguably strongest wizard, Josephine O’Connor, to the case. As Josephine studies and investigates this mysterious phenomenon, she learns that a young woman has become a lab rat to develop stronger wizards. As Josephine tries to help the woman control her abilities, it becomes apparent that the new wizard has a volatile power that may prove impossible to contain. Josephine and her friends face their greatest challenge yet when a hostile AI known as APU 81, created by an advanced civilization, resurfaces and targets them for termination. APU 81 has plotted for centuries to enslave humanity and the time has finally come for it to carry out its sinister plans.
