Author: Jenn Bennett
Rating: 

Meet Arcadia Bellbartender, renegade magician, fugitive from the law. . . .
Being the spawn of two infamous occultists (and alleged murderers) isn’t easy, but freewheeling magician Arcadia “Cady” Bell knows how to make the best of a crummy situation. After hiding out for seven years, she’s carved an incognito niche for herself slinging drinks at the demon-friendly Tambuku Tiki Lounge.
But she receives an ultimatum when unexpected surveillance footage of her notorious parents surfaces: either prove their innocence or surrender herself. Unfortunately, the only witness to the crimes was an elusive Æthyric demon, and Cady has no idea how to find it. She teams up with Lon Butler, an enigmatic demonologist with a special talent for sexual spells and an arcane library of priceless stolen grimoires. Their research soon escalates into a storm of conflict involving missing police evidence, the decadent Hellfire Club, a ruthless bounty hunter, and a powerful occult society that operates way outside the law. If Cady can’t clear her family name soon, she’ll be forced to sacrifice her own life . . . and no amount of running will save her this time.

Kindling the Moon begins when Arcadia's parents have been spotting out of hiding after seven years of being hidden. She knows that she only has a certain amount of time in order to prove their innocence or give her life to make up for the murders that were done so long ago. And along the way she meets Lon a local demonologist that helps her along the way. And it doesn't hurt that she's attracted to him either now does it. But she must hurry if she doesn't want to give up her life. 

This book was actually really good. I was a little bit surprised by it at first, but in a good way. I loved the plot line, and wow I was so not expecting the twist in the end either. So, that made it much more interesting. I also really enjoyed the heroine. She was brave, but smart as well. And didn't go off doing stupid things, even though she was pretty young. And speaking of young, I loved the hero too, and their age differences just made it that much more interesting to me. 

I look forward to reading more in this series, and I do recommend this one! Especially if your interested in paranormal!
