Born with a special gift, Molly could help others but existed between two worlds—undetectable by one and not fully part of the other. Usually choosing not to interfere in other folks lives, she never employed her abilities to their greatest potential. When the leader of the Animal Gang learns the truth of her skills, Molly’s simple life as a baker in her family’s shop is threatened. Could the Blue Wolf enforcer she’d been pining over help her escape and embrace her gifts . . . or is she just putting his life in danger?
Edo’s entire life had been one exception after another, never the norm on any path his life leads him. Using an ability he sees as mundane, he meets the beautiful baker while on a mission for his alpha. As she is hunted by the rogue gang she entrusts her secrets and her heart to him. But can he protect her in the diesel city and still serve his alpha and pack?
The Seer’s Secret by Mikea Howard is the second book in their Diesel War Series. The Diesel War series is set in a gritty and unique setting filled with interesting and diverse characters….I want more!
It was no secret that wasn’t a huge fan of the characters in the first book in this series, The Mechanic’s Mate. I was clear in the review, that the writing and world building totally pulled me in and that I was pretty sure it was just the dynamic of the relationship I wasn’t a fan of. I was right! The Seer’s Secret has a completely different relationship dynamic and I loved Molly and Edo. Strong and comfortable in her passion of baking, she was a joy to read about and I just adored her. Edo is unique and doesn’t fit into the typical shifter stereotype. He is called “Edo the Exception” for a reason! The mystery that follows in the background was well weaved into the romance story of Molly and Edo.
I loved the mystery and the originality of this world is truly fascinating. I love it. I will say this one thing….there is a lot of written slang and/or accents in the dialog. I find it easy to read and enjoyable, but I know some people struggle with it. I appreciate that the authors put so much into this world that slang and accents became almost a character in their own right. I find it a great addition to an overall well written story!
I rate The Seer’s Secret 4 out of 5 Bullets!
