Review by Jenna

Unlucky Charm is the second book in the Hopps Town Series by Aiden Lucid, with book one being The Scavenger, which I reviewed in March 2021. Will there be more to come? Yes and I’m glad there is.

The premise brings together a handful of early twenty-somethings. In book one these characters witnessed and battled creepy, evil spirits. Turns out the destruction of the demon was only just the beginning.

I enjoyed the overall plot with secrets and regrets in our past that can come back to haunt you. The author laid these out well, giving us lots of detail. No matter how sorry we are, the pain lingers. Toss in a very angry spirit and you might just end up getting hurt.

Lucid writes some cringeworthy bits. Eeew. He also paints a good picture of movement and threatening foes. There is a small amount of blood and gore which is awesome and necessary.

I did however have difficulty keeping the characters clear whilst reading. They are all about the same age, have similar attitudes, and were involved within the storyline of the last book. I need more distinctive details to separate them.

This is a series that needs to be read in order, so go pick up The Scavenger, then this one, Unlucky Charm for exciting and tense fantasy reads.
