When Allison is asked to play Cinderella-turned-Fiancée at a Halloween ball, the last thing she expected was to be accused of murder on the same night. She has to find the killer or she'll be put to death for the crimes she didn't commit. To make matters worse, the victims are all werewolves.

On the short list of potential victims, Allison has to act fast, or the killer will have one more body to add to his little black book of corpses.

There's only one problem: One of the deaths has struck too close to home, and Allison's desire for self-preservation may transform into a quest for vengeance...

*I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.*

Inquisitor is a fast-moving story with a lot going on. It’s hard to narrow down what the main character goal is, because it changes as the story progresses. A lot of questions are raised that take a while to get back to, but everything is wrapped up nicely by the end of the book.

I liked the conversational tone and the way the author made the reader feel Allison’s emotions.

I don’t have many complaints about Inquisitor. The biggest problem I had with the book was how long it took me to understand what the Inquisition was. It wasn’t until I was three-fourths of the way done that I finally understood why witches would hunt other witches or why they would hunt some Fenerec (werewolves) but not others. Other than that, I had a bit of a problem with the length of the book. I think it was unnecessarily long; some things felt repetitive and others felt like they didn’t need to be in the book at all.

I would recommend Inquisitor to readers who like stories about werewolves and witches without a lot of romance. I thought R.J. Blain did a great job with this book. I’m surprised that I hadn’t heard of her before because she is a very good writer.
