Overview

Blood. Sex. Magic. Knight Games.
Book 2 of 4 in the Knight Games Series

Commitment phobic Grateful Knight has her hands full. While she struggles to understand her new role as Monk's Hill Witch, evil isn't waiting for her to come up to speed. Not only is there an increase in supernatural activity in her ward, she's being evicted from her home, breaking in a snarky new familiar, and trying to sort out her feelings for her metaphysically connected and immortal boyfriend, Rick.

When Grateful foils a murder at a fae bordello, she uncovers a plot by a local vampire coven to obtain a secret weapon with the power to control both the living and the dead. History is threatening to repeat itself. And if Grateful doesn't give herself over to her role completely, it could cost her everything.

Everything you loved about Book 1 (The Ghost and the Graveyard) is back -- the quirky heroine, the strange, otherworldly sexual attraction she has to gorgeous Caretaker Rick, the cute chemistry she shares with BFF ghost Logan. Book 2 takes up where 1 left off and introduces some great new characters, including a hilarious, cynical talking crow named Poe. Grateful is learning as she's maturing into her role as Monk's Hill Witch, and the bad guys aren't waiting for her to catch up. I was breathless with all the action and the roller coaster ride is well worth the read! Hot, spicy, exciting, fun and suspenseful. Great job.

Kick the Candle (Knight Games) By Genevieve Jack Grateful is still fighting the undead and sorting spirits. Now her home is threatened, and her caretaker Rick thinks she wants Logan. When her friend Michelle finds the spell for a familiar she talks Grateful into doing it and instead of a cute cat she gets a bossy hungry Raven. Now if this doesn’t cause our main character enough problems her dad is dating a shadow creature and a possessed Necromancer is trying to get to the book of bones buried in the basement. It is all part of the life of a Hecate but wouldn’t it be nice if it just wasn’t always complicated. You have to read and find out what happens to Grateful in this second book of Knight Games. How is she going to let Logan the human know that she was only fascinated with Logan the ghost, and can she convince Rick that Logan is just a friend? When it all settles will she be able to kick the Candle in time. You have got to read it to find out. Total five star reading. Bella Doerres M. Ed 9/17/2013

This is not the usual kind of book I read but I got the first one free so I had to read the second one. They were both very good, very easy reads. If she continues the series I will definitely buy those as well.

Genevieve Jack does it again. Kick the Candle is a kicka$$ (pun intended!) sequel to Ghost in the Graveyard. Grateful Knight faces more demons, vampires and other ghoulies but mostly she faces her own insecurities. Don’t worry because Rick, her tall-built-and-sexy protector, helps her with all of the above. The world Genevieve builds is intensely creative. I felt like was standing next to Grateful as she battled baddies and her heart. If you like saucy, saucy paranormal stories, you have got to get your hands on Ghost and Kick!

Can't praise this book enough. Great characters, fast pace, strong story full of emotional content and gripping action written in a fluid, readable style all packaged in a short page turner. In short Geneieve Jack can write as well as anyone and fit it all into a compact joyful reading experience. Excellent.

I'm giving this one 5 stars because I enjoyed it even more than the first book. I feel like there was good resolution at the end of the book, no cliffhangers or anything, and it left me yearning to start the third one immediately.  I really like the idea of the woman coming into her power rather than the usual "falling for the dark/mysterious/sexy/bad guy and having to fit into his lifestyle". Not to say I don't love those books too, I totally do, but this is a refreshing take on the genre.  In this book the author did a better job of fleshing out the characters, even the ones that appear briefly. I don't know if I said this in my last review but I've often found myself thinking "that's what I would do" or "that's what I would think in the same situation" while reading these books.  Even though the topic of the books is ancient magic, it feels fresh and modern. The one thing I feel could have been done more in depth is the relationship that Grateful has with her father. He is treated as a peripheral character, and he mostly is, but any child is a product of their upbringing, and I'd like to see that relationship explored more fully. Hoping to see that in the next book.
