Hey friend! Welcome back to Adele Is Reading.
How are you?
Today’s post is my book review of Heart of Malice, by Lisa Edmonds.
Heart of Malice is the first book in the Alice Worth series, which has 7 books (and a few novellas!).
The first time Moses Murphy’s granddaughter killed on his orders, she was six years old.
For twenty years, she was a prisoner of an organized crime syndicate, forced to use her magic to make Moses the most powerful and feared man on the East Coast. To escape his cruelty, she faked her own death and started a new life as Alice Worth. As a private investigator specializing in cases involving the supernatural, Alice walks a precarious line between atoning for the sins of her grandfather’s cabal and keeping her true identity hidden.
Hired to investigate the disappearance of a mysterious object of power, Alice enlists the help of Malcolm, a ghost running from a past as nightmarish as her own. It soon becomes clear the missing object was taken by someone with a dangerous secret and an unknown agenda. When her client is kidnapped, Alice must find her and the object of power before a vengeful killer destroys the city and slaughters thousands—starting with Alice.
Trigger Warnings: Torture Mention, Murder mention, Blood Letting, Blood, Self Harm mention(s), sex scenes.
Heart of Malice was interesting to say the least, though I don’t really think highly of Heart of Malice, either.
There’s a good flow to the story, though there are a handful of triggers to watch out for.
From what I remember of the sex scenes, they’re alright. I wouldn’t say they’re too graphically detailed, though there are the “regular” details and whatnot.
As much as I am intrigued as to where the Alice Worth series is headed, at this time, I’m not interested in continuing on.
I give Heart of Malice, 2 stars.
Have you read Heart of Malice? What did/do you think? I’d love to hear your thoughts.
Thanks for checking out this lil’ review of mine.
I hope you have a great day. Happy Reading!
