Treasures, Demons, and Other Black Magic (The Dowser #3) by Meghan Ciana Doidge

Sponsored post: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to author Meghan Ciana Doidge.



Treasures, Demons, and Other Black MagicI hadn’t set foot in the human world for more than a few hours in over three and a half months. Sure, I was stronger and faster than I’d ever been before, and I had a shiny new sword, but I was seriously chocolate deprived. I don’t recommend quitting cold turkey. And the new sword was a problem — to my mind, anyway. It represented all the expectations of a powerful father and a new otherworldly life. A life that wasn’t the one I’d worked so hard to build. It also represented the responsibility I had to bring my foster sister Sienna to … what? Justice? I didn’t know if that was even possible. What I did know was that Sienna wouldn’t stop, and that I couldn’t just leave everything up to fate and destiny … or maybe I was. Maybe I was doing exactly what I was supposed to be doing. If you believed in that sort of thing.
I just hoped that before the chaos and mayhem renewed, I’d manage to get my hands on some chocolate. It didn’t even have to be single-origin Madagascar. I was utterly prepared to lower my standards.

Jade made have found out that she’s half-witch, and half something else, but she still hasn’t found a way to deal with her crazy half-sister Sienna.
Is Jade’s training enough to dead with Sienna? And how many more must die before she is stopped?


This was a good third instalment in this urban fantasy series, and I am still lusting after those cupcakes!

Jade was once again strong in this book. She’d obviously put a lot of time and effort into training in an effort to stop her sister Sienna from destroying the world, even going so far as to *gasp* go without chocolate for three and a half months!!

The storyline in this was good, and I liked the action. I liked Jade’s new found talents and the way she had learned to use them, and even though we didn’t see many of them, the cupcakes sounded delicious!
There was a touch of romance, and one little romantic tryst, there wasn’t a lot of it though, and this book wasn’t really about the romance.

The ending was good, and I liked the way we finally saw the end of Sienna! I have a feeling we haven’t seen the end of Jade yet though.
Overall; another great instalment in this urban fantasy series,
7 out of 10.
