If, like me, you’ve been waiting for the next instalment of the Ironhill Jinn series with baited breath, you won’t be disappointed. I’ve read everything Ms. Adam’s has written, and this novel is by far my favourite, and that’s saying something—her other stories are incredible too!
Stone Cold continues Lou Hudson’s story from where Stone Chameleon (the first in the Ironhill Jinn series) left off. Ace monster-whisperer, Lou, works tirelessly for the Ironhill pest control to keep all the city’s preternatural creatures in check. Her task is made all the more difficult in this instalment by feuding vampires and the emergence of a terrifying new/old foe pulling everyone’s strings. Not to mention poor Lou has to keep her jinn heritage on the low-down or risk an instant death penalty.
As the book cover promises, we find out a whole lot more about the brooding vampire hive lord, Issac, who has one hell of a hold over Lou—in more ways than one. The romantic tension between the two main characters literally vibrates off the page and up your arm, and everything you think you know about Issac will be turned on its head as the book progresses. He’s so tortured and captivating that I defy you not to completely fall for the blood sucker by the story’s end.
The bad guy in Stone Cold is bone shakingly despicable and takes this story to a dark place. Some readers might find one of the topics touched upon a little difficult to read about, but it’s important to the storyline and not just thrown in for shock value. If you like your bad guys bad, then look no further.
As with the first novel in the series, the Ironhill story world and the intricacies of the preternatural creatures’ politics and customs are mind-bogglingly brilliant. This really is a very well thought out novel with captivating characters and an intense plot that will leave you willing Ms. Adams’s fingers to type the next instalment much faster.
An easy 5 stars.
