Trickster’s Hunt (Three Tricksters #1) by Carrie Whitethorne was an okay read that had an interesting concept, and a unique plot.
My first read by this author, I went in with an open mine. There are so many unique things and elements in this book that kept me reading and made it enjoyable. I loved the cat, like I want one.. a talking one. But there are some things that made me fall out of this story and caused me to be distracted.
The plot was slow moving and I found there was a lot of emphasis on the MC’s job, and the competitive eating. It actually stalled the plot at times, and in truth I skipped a lot of that. As interesting as it was, it just took away from the main plot. The MC, was, okay, I’m hoping she develops more, in the books to come, but for a first introduction it was, so-so. I was actually thrown off by the opening, and the way she describes how “Normal” she was. It was a little over the top, and for me, didn’t quite do the trick.
Overall this wasn’t a bad read. I loved the unique plot, I can’t say it, because I don’t want to spoiler that wonder, but I can tell you it isn’t like anything you’ve read before. And that cliff hanger, way to leave a girl in suspense. So give this book a chance, it has potential, and I’m looking forward to reading the next book in this series.
