Book two of the 'Coursodon Series' by M. L. Ryan, “Special Rewards”, is filled with a little romance, some fantasy and lots of mayhem! The once ordinary Hailey Parrish deals with her life now that the flamboyant Sebastian Kess, an enforcer from the parallel dimension Coursodon, has left her body, leaving behind some of his magical abilities. Hailey has also managed to fall in love with Alex Sunderland, Sebastian’s protégé, who is the target of an unknown assailant, oh and a royal Prince, too! Of course, a trip to Coursodon is in the cards for everyone, forcing Hailey to adapt to a new world, a new love and new powers. As she learns to control her new abilities, Hailey finds she is less than adept in the “Hocus Pocus” department, subject to temper tantrums that cause her powers to go haywire at the most inopportune times! Somehow she often manages to save the day when needed, all the while providing lots of humor along the way! Still, there are questions . . . Is Alex the real target or is it someone else? Which world are they from? Is there a plan involving the harming of humans?
I found “Special Rewards” to be funny, creatively brilliant and a great read! M. L. Ryan has crafted a unique world filled with a variety of characters, all full of their own special flare, personality and life! Her ideas for Hailey’s manifesting abilities are cleverly done, while the plot flows swiftly to its end, leaving room for me to eagerly anticipate the next book!
