The Adept-Book Two: The Lodge of the Lynx

by

Katherine Kurtz & Deborah Turner Harris

Knight . . . Warrior . . . Doctor . . . Detective . . .
Master of the Hunt!


He is eternal, but so are his foes. Through countless lives and eras, The Adept has fought the powers of Darkness. Now, as psychiatrist Adam Sinclair, he leads his loyal Hunstmen against supernatural evil in all all its myriad forms.

But the Darkness is striking back—in the guise of an unholy cult long thought to be extinct. Endowed with the elemental energy of an ancient Druidic artifact and forbidden Nazi black magic, the Lodge of the Lynx stands ready to unleash destruction on Sinclair, his allies, and, ultimately, all of Scotland.


The game is afoot for the Adept and his Hunt ... but this time, their enemies are also hunting them!



THE GATHERING STORM!

A low growl of thunder rolled hollowly across the lawn, accompanied by a more defined crackle of lightning within the roiling clouds. The brief flare picked out two more figures in battledress uniform as they hurried out onto the grass from the shadows of the building, eyes turned skyward under uniform berets.

“Oi! Archie! D’ye see that?” one of them yelled. “Where did all these clouds come from?”

Before Archie could venture a response, an eye-searing bolt of bright-white lightning ripped the sky above the castle roof, accompanied by a deafening crack of thunder. The lightning bolt struck the north turret of the great square tower with the force of a mortar round, hurling stones and roof slates up and outward in a blazing fountain of destruction . . .

    Edge of the seat action

    Second entry in the Adept series keeps the interest going. Characters are well thought out and with a lot of depth.

    Disappointed

    While I enjoyed the first book emmensly this one seemed take a while to get started and dragged in the middle as well. I also didn't like the parts of the story told from the antagonists' point if view. I like suspene in stories and if I know what the antagonist is going to do where's the draw? So ai ended up skipping those parts which really broke up the flow of the book. Other than that this book was good. We see Peregrine grow more into his Huntsman role and all the characters are well done as we see more of their powers as well. I hope the last book of the trilogy does not go into the antagonists' point of view again so I am not skipping parts of the book. I do look forward to seeing how it all works out and hope that I am not dragged along to get there like in this chapter of the trilogy.
