Sold at the age of twelve to support his mother’s drug habit and rescued from a life on the streets by a cop, thirty-two-year-old Tony Locke had had a brutal start in life.
He’d risen to the position of homicide detective in the Everlight Police Department—a testament to his intelligence and driving ambition to help other victims of Everlight's prolific industry in sex and drugs. With his promotion to the hush-hush Interdimensional Task Force, he could broaden his reach—if he could just get along with his a-hole of a partner.
Leo Fortan labored under a soul-crushing burden of sacrifice, trapped in a lonely and rigid existence. Hand-picked from that existence and assigned to the Interdimensional Task Force, he thought his life had taken a turn for the better—until he met his partner, Tony Locke. Leo thought it probable they would kill each other.
For a man who thought love didn’t exist and a man who’d sacrificed everything for it, finding common ground may require more than an incident of magic.
An Incident of Magic is book two in Kris Michaels & Patricia A. Knight’s Everlight series. The focal point in this book is Tony and Silk. Though we see Sable and Hiro a lot and even get their POV a bit it’s mainly Tony and Silk’s show.
Silk is from Elysium and when I say he is beautiful inside and out I really mean that. He’s selfless beyond words and brave and a million other things. When the book starts off he and his partner Tony aren’t getting along. At all! To the point they both want to be reassigned. So, a bit of an enemies to lovers trope thing happening here.
Tony’s past has dictated his future and the purpose it holds. Personality wise I loved him. He’s funny, very accident prone, and has a sweet heart. When Silk and Tony finally get their heads out of their butts they are a hot, steamy, adorable couple.
In this book, the story of the murders, sex slaves, drugs, and power are still going on. Full steam ahead…. We get some answers but are still left with many. A plan perhaps? I suspect and hope that in the next book of the series we get more answers. I will say the epilogue really gave me a lot of hope for that.
I still can’t seem to follow all the names for things and how it all works but I follow it enough to know what’s going on. I like that in this book the number of people on Hiro and Sable’s side is growing. Those two needed the help and I can’t think of two better guys than Tony and Silk to help them solve this completely!
Great book and awesome series.
