Much of Madness by S. E. Summa
Published February 29th 2016
Seraphina Pearce doesn’t know what’s more frustrating: her magic’s affinity for death, her best friend’s transformation into an albino Sin Eater, or that simply touching a guy she loves means someone’s headed to the morgue.
After a sin-eating job goes awry, she casts a risky spell and butts heads with a handsome stranger in order to win an infamous grimoire.
Marceau L’Argent is the last person she should confide in because the occult cat burglar has a mysterious past, and he’s made it no secret he also wants the grimoire. He recognizes her dark magic and offers his unique help as a rare curse breaker. If all that weren’t enough, Marceau causes butterflies in her stomach—a feeling she’d long thought dead.
Seraphina was only trying to break her curse—not piss off Death himself.
The plot was well written and the formality of some of the characters made me love the author’s writing style.
*SPOILER*I really enjoyed the development of Khat, the fact that we could see the growth of her relationship with Seraphina and the scene where she met Marceau.
I liked the fact that the author created a strong friendship between characters from opposite sexes that didn’t even consider a romantic relationship.
If you like books with curses, magic and spirits you should try Much of Madness. I really loved the set of characters and the plot was amazing.
