My Rating: 4 STARS
We are introduced to the characters in this book as they are trying to break someone out of prison and that captured my interest straight away. From the very first page I was completely into the story.
The group of characters in Dangerous Remedy work together at saving people from the guillotine and I loved the found family aspect of this book. I loved how they were their own crew who rely very much on each other even though they don’t get along all the time. I thought each character had their own voice and I liked how the each had their own reasons for being a part of the battalion.
I liked both Camille and Ada, I thought they were both strong characters and I loved reading about their relationship and I liked how they recognised the flaws in each other. Al was another interesting character and a very funny one and I loved reading the scenes of him bantering with the rest of the group.
There were many twists and turns in the story and I loved that. I loved the intrigue and I thought the writing was very compelling to read and it made the pacing of the story flow so well.
Overall I really liked Dangerous Remedy. I loved the characters and their interactions with each other. I thought the writing was captivating and the story was very intriguing and full of twists. I’m very excited about the next book in the series.
