Book Review: Compelled

Compelled

By:  S.A. Archer

Format:  eNovella

Publisher:  Ravynheart Publishing

Publish Date:  November 9, 2012

Series:  4th in Touch series
Affiliated with Champion of the Sidhe series, and Rise of the Unseelie series

Book Synopsis:
London's made mistakes.  A lot of them.  Enough so that she's been marked for elimination by a powerful Unseelie Sidhe.  As a human cursed with an addiction to the Touch of the Sidhe, her life and her future depends on finding a Sidhe who will hire her on a permanent basis.  The only way to put her reputation for causing trouble behind her is to prove herself by tracking down a powerful druid who's endangering the Sidhe.  But when old enemies resurface, can London trust the man she was sent to investigate?  Or will this finally be her fatal mistake?

First Sentence:
"You screwed the pooch on that one, babe."

My Thoughts and Summary:
Joe is back and chatting with London.  London tells him about her threatening text from the Unseelie.  We learn Joe has found himself a Sidhe to serve.  But then, Joe didn't contact London to 'catch up' and chat about her flailing reputation he'd heard of.  No, he needs her help and it just might clear her name enough to please his Sidhe boss to take her in.  It's always good to have a backup plan when your life depends on it, if she can pull it off and clear her name.

We get to see two characters from previous stories; Joe and Riley.  Great to see the characters resurface again!

Joe's to check out a man for his boss.  A man who likes to think of himself as a ladies man, and thinks London could do the trick.

London is scared after her run in with the Unseelie.  She's now stacking out her own home waiting to see if they come for her.  She's not been staying there.

This story does cross with Lugh's story in Protector of the Light.  We get to see London's view of the meeting of Lugh.  Again I was worried it would be to much repeat from Lugh, but from London's mind the brief encounter is new and interesting.

I really found this interesting with the tie-in with the other books/series here.  I've been trying to piece together from the other series and London (to me) unknowingly fulfilling a mission for a Sidhe and maybe even through exttention helping the one that wants her dead.

Sneaky.  Good.  Well played.  I love it when things are all entwined together and play out on a bigger screen.  Wonderful addition to London's story and the other series as well, always learning more about this world.
