Blurb (from Goodreads):
Three months ago, I lost my foster sister, Sienna, to the darkness. As in blood magic and chaos and general mayhem. No one saw it until it was too late, but I should have. Now, I have a wounded heart and soul that I can’t even reveal to anyone around me, because I’m supposed to hate Sienna with the fiery passion of the justified. And I do. I just wish I didn’t feel so lost without her, so unsure of the path I thought I had carved for myself, and so outclassed by the powerful Adepts constantly by my side these days. I’m not even sure if they’re with me for my own protection or because my shiny new powers are rare and valuable. Assuming I ever figure out who or what I am, and how my magic actually works.
Note: This 82,000 word urban fantasy is the second book in the Dowser SEries by author Meghan Ciana Doidge.
Trinkets, Treasures, and Other Bloody Magic (Dowser #2)
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

This is book 2 in the ‘Dowser’ series.
Sienna has gone, but Jade is far from out of trouble.
After being asked to view a ‘collection’, Jade and her crew set off on a little road trip, taking plenty of cupcakes with them, although things are never as straightforward as they seem.
Is Sienna really gone for good? What exactly is Jade? And how long can a girl go without chocolate?
This was an action-packed urban fantasy, and I still really love the cupcakes!
Jade was a strong character in this book, and she wasn’t afraid to take the bull by the horns. She made a point of trying to protect herself, and those she loved, even if it meant wrestling bears! I loved her hidden knife and how she used it, and I loved how much she loves chocolate. Can’t help but love a girl who loves chocolate as much as I do!
The storyline in this was pretty-action packed, and there was plenty of excitement. We once again had a lot of different supernaturals turning up in this story, and the cupcakes weren’t forgotten, I really want to try those dark chocolate cupcakes with blueberry buttercream frosting now!
The ending of this one was also quite interesting, as we were left with Jade finding out some very important information with regards to her heritage, that was really quite surprising and clever. It will be interesting to see what happens to Jade from here onwards.
Overall; good urban fantasy sequel, recommended for fans of Karen Chance.
7 out of 10.
