{Book Review} Arcane Circle (Persephone Alcmedi #4) by Linda Robertson

Arcane Circle (Persephone Alcmedi #4)
by Linda Robertson
Publisher: Pocket Books
Released: December 28th 2010
Genre: Fiction- Adult: Urban Fantasy
How I got it: Received a copy from the publisher

Even magic can’t solve everything. . . . After facing down the forces of Fairy in mortal combat, Persephone Alcmedi still must deal with the aftermath. Not only does Seph now possess deadly secrets she must hide from the arcane and mundane world alike, but the dozens of magical creatures who’ve taken up residence behind her cornfield need food and shelter, and there’s still her foster daughter Beverly’s tenth birthday party to plan. And that’s not all. . . . Seph’s boyfriend Johnny has revealed himself as the wærewolf Domn Lup, and the ruler of the wære world is en route from Romania to make sure Johnny really is the “king” he claims to be. But Johnny’s hiding a dangerous secret: his magic is locked in his mysterious tattoos. He and Seph must find a way for him to reclaim it—fast—despite those who have no intention of letting Johnny gain his full powers. Seph knows that, in the arcane world, strength is always a necessity and power must be constantly proven, but how far is she willing to go to succeed . . . and at what cost?

Review: Ever had a book that you just didn't retain? I mean you read the whole thing, but were only able to remember bits and peices. That's what happened to me with and this book.
I'll usually finish a book, set it aside let my brain ferment and then write the review but after this book "fermented" I could only pull a few things up. Don't get me wrong I love Seph, but for some reason only a couple things stood out. Prehaps it's because a good portion is dedicated to normalicy. Well at least as normal as life gets for Seph.
The other thing this book focused on is Johnny becoming Dom Lup or Wolf King. Yes He finally comes out of his dog house, and proclaims his postion to all the other were's It does not go over as planned and once again Seph has put herself in a bad spot. Of course after repleatedly getting into trouble she's much better at handleing them, plus thinking on her feet. This means dealing with a sexist wolf ruler, her estranged mothers return and figuring out who tattoo'd Johnny. Oh and planning a birthday party. Not a lot of action in this one, sure there were a couple moments. At times it felt like the plot was crawling along. To me this was sort of a filler book a way to get information and work on Seph's relationships, more than the other books. Although the ending was pretty spectactular. I have to add that I did yell at the book when I put all the peices together, about the tattoos and the artist. It really wasn't as hard as Seph made it.
So to sum it up great ending eh to the rest. I hope the next one is better.
