Allison is a 160-year-old rogue Fenerec/werewolf and a half witch. She once had been a secret of the Inquisition, locked in a cage until she gained her freedom, hiding from the notorious ancient group in the modern world. Allison discovers the Inquisition’s presence during a Halloween party, and a witch was even executed under the disguise of murder mystery game. When she is framed for a murder she didn’t commit, Allison and her longtime witch friend, Samantha Morrison, flee the city, without realizing that the Inquisition is hot on their trail.

Inquisitor (Witch & Wolf, Book 1) by RJ Blain is a modern supernatural tale with a healthy dose of murder mystery, suspense, intrigue and wit. Characterization is solid; the heroine Allison/Victoria is multidimensional – an alpha female werewolf and a low grade witch with real fears and weaknesses (I find her ‘allergies’ to dogs comical). The prose is simple but vivid and engaging. There are many things happening quickly and new characters keep being added as the story progresses. Everything is tied up nicely in the end, but I find myself ambivalent about the multifaceted storyline. That said, I don’t quite find it as a flaw. Blain has introduced a fresh and exciting concept with the classic werewolves and witches theme that I’m truly invested in. I look forward to reading the next installment in the series, Winter Wolf.
