Death and the Crone (The Lucky Devil Series Book 3) by Megan Mackie was a hooking, unique, outstanding read, that had me flipping the pages late into the night. Why does work have to ruin good books?
Not my first read by this author or in this series, I was super excited to get my hands on it. I will say that this book isn’t actually book three of the Lucky Devil Series, it’s a story set in that world, with different MC’s and plot. So it can be read as a standalone, and as a side story to the main one. But I do suggest reading the other books, because they are, amazing.
This book was so fun, unique and just, wow. It took the over used concept of the 100 year old supernatural something or other, that falls in love with the 16 year old minor, and flips it on its head. This book was all about taking those over use tropes and clichés and destroying them, while making new ones. The plot itself is original, and grabs your attention right away. Like the other books, this book has that spark of adventure and danger, keeping you engaged. The detail was movie like, and helped round out the story and characters.
Overall this book is a super high recommendation from me. So please take my stamp of approval that, this book will hook you right from that opening scene, until the last pages of that wicket closing ending.
