Sharp, sarcastic, and efficiently lethal, John Charming would feel right at home having drinks with Dean Winchester and Harry Dresden. DARING, the second book in the Pax Arcana series, is just as addicting as the first.
Something is rotten in the state of Wisconsin.
Werewolf packs are being united and absorbed into an army of super soldiers by a mysterious figure who speaks like an angel and fights like a demon. And every Knight Templar -- keepers of the magical peace between mankind and magickind -- who tries to get close to this big bad wolf winds up dead. No knight can infiltrate a group whose members can smell a human from a mile away...no knight except one.
John Charming. Ex knight. Current werewolf. Hunted by the men who trained him, he now might be their only salvation. But animal instincts are rising up to claim John more powerfully than ever before, and he must decide if this new leader of wolves is a madman...or a messiah.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Daring (Pax Arcana #2) by Elliott James Charming was all about getting the bad guys and making a few friends John could trust along the way. Daring is more a journey about accepting all of who you are and fighting some bad guys along the way. Charming had a very linier path while there was a time in Daring I wasn’t sure what the point was a few times…but no worries it all makes sense and comes together at the end.John really had to journey through a lot to determine who the good and bad players in the game are. I missed the Scooby Doo Gang type vibe of the first book as John spent a lot of time with a different set of characters all of whom were much edgier.

Editorial Reviews

"Grab some snacks and settle back as splendid debut author James serves up a Prince Charming tale yanked sideways...James's reluctant hero faces threats and danger with a smart-ass attitude that keeps the narrative fast-paced, edgy and amusing. Mark this name down -- you will undoubtedly be seeing more from James!"-RT Book Reviews on Charming
