My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Simon the Strategist from Dannika Dark’s Mageri world gets his own story, and this book did not disappoint.
Dark has a way of really bringing her characters to life, giving them unique and recognizable personalities. The magic of her world draws you in, but it’s the characters that keep you coming back again and again.
In Risk, Simon is given an opportunity to have a favor owed him by Novis, and in the Mage world, favors are a valuable commodity, especially when it’s someone as prestigious as Novis who is a council member. All Simon has to do is train a learner of Hannah’s, another council member, appropriately dubbed the “Ice Queen.”
Not one to turn down a challenge, Simon takes on the role and soon finds out he’s getting a lot more than he bargained for.
Risk, like Simon Hunt himself, is super sexy, hilariously funny, and doesn’t skimp on the action. Getting to see inside Simon’s mind was especially fun and enlightening. (And I have a whole new respect for Levi after this book!)
I look forward to seeing more from Dannika Dark in the future. I do need a good Christian Poe fix, since that snarky vamp didn’t make an appearance this round!
