Welcome to Halfway; where the waffles are golden, the moon is silver, and magic is just around every corner.A century old curse is broken, releasing Exit Wainwright, an innocent man trapped alone in time.
Lost and in danger, he enlists Carlie, Gran, and their magic to find the warlock who sentenced him to a hundred years of darkness. The hunter becomes the hunted when Carlie's spells awaken a cold-blooded killer intent on adding another pelt to their gruesome collection: hers.
But the killer has never been to Halfway before, where there are three unbreakable rules:
1. Don't complain about the diner's waffles.
2. Don't break the laws of magic.
3. Never threaten a witch on her home turf.
Can Carlie solve an ancient crime, defeat a ruthless killer and save the love of her life from a vampire's curse without burning the waffles? Come hunt with Carlie, and answer the call of the wild.
The third installment in this awesome series couldn't arrive fast enough! So many questions left unanswered from Book 2 (no spoiler alerts here) and a compelling story arc which sucks a reader in and beckons for return trip after return trip to Halfway, NY, ensure that fans will be back for more mystery, magic and waffles! Carlie returns to relate the further adventures of her witchy world. You have to love a young woman who owns her world, her power and her sexuality - accepting learning and loss, leaning on the sage wisdom of Gran and ever available to help those who need her magical interventions most.
Exit Wainright is a man who returns to the world after nearly a hundred year slumber. Disoriented and obviously under the effects of a massively powerful warlock, he falls under the protective wings of the McEwan witches. Add in the arrival of mysterious warlocks and their creepy henchman hunters who collect supernatural pelts and the continued saga of Wulfric's salvation and you have the makings of another action packed, must listen read.
Three books into the series, and Maggert continues to spin creative and captivating storylines and entrancing secondary characters. I still maintain that Carlie McEwan ranks in my top ten favorite paranormal heroines. The pace of Halfway Hunted is perfect, not too hurried and full of action, mystery and things witchy and otherwise weird. The use of magic is much darker in this book with a closer look at blood magic and the dark machinations of the warlock wreaking havoc on Halfway. The culmination of magical battles is intense and emotional - the romance between Carlie and Wulfric is hotter than ever as their passion mirrors the fight they engage to stay together.
Once again, Erin Spencer brings life to the clever characters of this book - with a great range of inflections and pitch perfect pace, she nails the reading on this audio gem. There is something that is at once soothing and yet compelling - I think she captures the essence of Carlie perfectly as a woman comfortable in her own skin, quietly reassured and yet powerful in her own right. She has gone into the "must find more of her works" audio basket.
