Charming by Elliott James (Pax Arcana #1)

The Pax Arcana series is simply a jewel.  If you enjoyed Percy Jackson as a kid (or now) you will most likely enjoy this series.

Charming is an urban fantasy novel about John Charming.  He isn’t a prince, nor is he descended from any, but he is related to a line of bad ass monster fighters.  He was a Knight.  Knights are magically obligated by a geas to protect magic people and the Pax Arcana, which is a magic spell keeping regular humans from finding out about magical people.  John is not longer a part of the Knights, but he joins a cobbled together group of monster hunters, headed by Sig, a mysterious woman of unknown mystical origin.

The book is first person narrated by John himself, and he is full of snark and sarcasm.  The book is a fast read, but thoroughly enjoyable.  A small warning for those who are too young/don’t like certain topics/ language in your books.  There are mentions of sex and some language in the series.  I didn’t mind it, but many of you might (or your parents might).  Sex is talked about more openly and in a way that I’m not used to, but again, I didn’t mind.

All in all, 10/10, would read again.
