Konrad Savast is the Malykant: foremost and most secret servant of the God of Death. His job? To track down the foulest of murderers and bring them to The Malykt’s Justice.
No mercy. No quarter.
A sparkling society ball is held at Bakar House - but its success is overshadowed by the subsequent suicide of one of its guests. There was something strange about Miss Dominka Popov, but when Konrad is sent to investigate, he learns the strangest truth of all: her death was neither suicide, nor murder... but both.
How could this be? When Konrad delves into the victim’s past, he uncovers a host of strange family secrets. Assailed by the combined perils of society gossip, an unregistered Ghostspeaker and a host of unquiet spirits, Konrad will need all of his wits - and the help of his closest friends - to discover the truth.
Yet another fun, entertaining installment of the Malykant Mysteries series. Such fun little books. None have been over a hundred pages and each one has been a great way to escape for a few hours. This one was no different.
I won’t go into too much detail because this far along in the series I’m at risk of giving spoilers. I’ll just say we learn a lot about both Nanda and Konrad in this book. Hearing Konrad’s story has made him even more appealing to me. I do enjoy him and the struggles he faces as the Malykant. Events in this book take it to a new level that I absolutely loved. Great character development!
It isn’t action heavy and seemed a lot more about asking questions with little threat to the main characters. It would have bothered me just a hair if not for all we learn about Konrad and Nanda. It kept me interested without needing action.
Again, the writing is smooth and I easily slipped away for a short time. I’m already looking forward to the next installment.
Overall, I highly recommend this series to those just looking for a quick escape for an hour or so. They are short and immensely entertaining.
