Deadly Curiosities, Book 5

A dark witch dynasty. A malicious, immortal undersea place-spirit. Eternal guardians who wagered their souls to protect Charleston.

Omens of impending disaster have the city on edge. Tremors warn of earthquake risk, while a potentially catastrophic storm gathers strength over the ocean and heads for land.

A last-man-standing promise among elderly veterans creates a dangerous inheritance involving an imprisoned, wish-granting goblin. A sea captain and a swashbuckler worked blood magic to protect Charleston from an ancient evil with a spell that bound their souls and their descendants to the task, but danger looms as its power fades. The head of a witch family wants artifacts and secrets—and he’ll do anything to get them.

Cassidy Kincaide runs Trifles and Folly, an antique and curio store where her touch magic helps get cursed and haunted objects out of the wrong hands. More than once, she and her allies have saved the world from supernatural threats.

The clock is ticking for Cassidy and her friends to stop the dark warlock, capture the goblin and restore the guardian spell before a malevolent ancient entity takes its vengeance on Charleston and the coast. It’s going to take all the magic, courage and quick thinking they can muster—and for once, that might not be enough.

Legacy is an action-packed urban fantasy paranormal thrill ride full of dark magic, infernal creatures, goblins and demigods, haunted places, pirate ghosts, found family, witch dynasties, loyal friends, Voudon spirits, secret history and plenty of adventure.

Book Five in the Deadly Curiosities series.

4 Stars
Book 5 of The Deadly Curiosities, supernatural series, was chock full of adventure, and things that go bump in the night. I strongly urge you to catch up with the series. Ms. Martin gives you backstory in her books, but so much happens it will be helpful. The story continues with an alliance between mortals and immortals that keep deadly objects, and specters from causing harm.
Cassidy is a psychometric. She has the unique ability that can read an object’s past history, and magical marks. This is riskier than it sounds as Cassidy and her crew have stumbled on some seriously dark, and dangerous magic. Her partner who helps her is Teag, who has the ability to weave charms into objects for protection. I love this character so much. He is wicked smart, and always has Cassidy’s back.
Running a curio-antique store which is located in Charleston, takes up only part of their time. A great deal is done behind the scenes, keeping really serious, sinister spirits, and creatures from creating mass havoc.
This book has many challenges our heroine must overcome, including a missing bottle with a rather unusual problem. The bottle holds a genie-like creature trapped inside that can grant wishes. The bottle needs to be found as in the wrong hands this could be devasting on a global size.
My favorite part of the book was learning about two lovers named Gideon and Ramon. These men from the past managed to preserve peace which now is being threatened by a dark Warlock. Their relationship was very complex, and I am just skimming the surface. As I stated, Cassidy, and friends, have a lot on their hands, and so much is happening all at once.
The book had all of Ms. Martin’s special touches. Toward the middle of the story, the reading became more challenging for me. The number of characters in the book, and the numerous looming disasters we’re starting to get hard to keep track of. Now that just might have been me, and I do recommend this novel.
So, get ready for some major evil, witches, curses, ghosts both good and bad, plus a whole lot more. Rest assured this book will not disappoint. I enjoyed this ghostly adventure, and hope you do too. Happy reading!
