ILL FATED is the fifth book in the Maurin Kincaide series by Rachel Rawlings.

In ILL FATED, Maurin is faced with a mystery when all of the Hunt disappears, including her father and her lover.

This is a book that will probably not make a lot of sense unless you have read the other books in the series. I recommend starting at the beginning of the series, since one book leads into the next.

I thought the author did a good job of keeping the focus on Maurin’s problems. Also, the setting descriptions are rich; I was able to visualize the scenes easily.

I’m not certain why it happened, but about halfway through the book I lost interest. I think ILL FATED was the victim of middle-of-the-book-sag. Not enough was happening; Maurin wasn’t in enough danger to hold my attention. I put the book down for several months. When I finally forced myself to go back and finish it, I was pleased because it does get more interesting later in the story.

Although I had trouble reading ILL FATED, I would still read another book in this series. Maurin is a likable character. Usually, Rachel Rawlings’ books are action-packed from start to finish.
