My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book is a great crime fantasy read.

A sword with sentience. An artifact aficionado. There’s a whole world of problems. Harlow Fletcher is a charm collector that goes by the name of Harlow Fletcher. She understands more about the criminal underbelly than the ordinary Luma resident because she is the daughter of bounty hunters. However, once her father was slain as a result of his employment and her mother fled town, she swore off the profession for myself. She should have gone into a more secure, unrelated field, such as accountancy. Instead, she found herself working as a freelance charm collector, which is a profitable job. She has an uncanny ability to track down rare items, particularly illicit magic-laced weaponry, and she used this talent to break into criminals’ homes after the cops have taken them away for their latest transgressions. She would sell the contraband to the highest bidder once she had helped herself to it.

While robbing her last victim, she notices a beautiful sword. Her instincts tell her it has dragon power rushing through its blade, and she already has the ideal buyer in mind. Within minutes, she regrets her choice to steal the sword: the weapon is alive. It’s lightning-fast and has a temper issue, but it’s taken liking to her. She is relieved to have the sword taken away from her life one day. When the cops showed up at her house, accusing her of murder, she was less relieved. The devilish sword glides into her flat, coated in blood, as she is arguing that she did not commit the crime. They’re now on the run, pursued by bounty hunters and government-trained feline shifters. While the sentient murder weapon stands by her side, she must somehow establish her innocence.

I loved this story. I loved every page of it. Every chapter was exciting. This is my first book from this author and I can’t wait to read the rest of the series.
