Book & Author Details:
The Best of Us (Mira Brand #5) by Robert J Crane
Publication date: 6th June 2018
Genres: Sci Fi, Fantasy
“When I ran away, aged seventeen, I didn’t do it for the usual reasons…I did it because I was looking for adventure.”
My name is Mira Brand, and I’m a Seeker – a treasure hunter who can cross between worlds seeking long-forgotten treasure hoards of ancient races. My home is London, but I work in the worlds beneath our own, seeking after my own fortune.
Except for the time I had to pay a debt to Lady Angelica, the most powerful sorcerer in my world. But there was glory in it for me, and danger as well, so of course I was all in.
The only problem was…it came at a time when my little family was already falling apart at the edges…and by the time I got done, I had wonder…would there even be anyone left?
Let me get this out of the way. I don’t like Mira very much. She is arrogant, selfish and rude. She is … a teenager. And a well observed one at that. And yet, I still come back for more. Because although she’s not my fave, the stories are really growing on me.
This is, to my mind, the best in the series thus far. Why? Well, for … reasons. I mean come on, no spoilers. But if you’re a fan of this author, you just know that something big is going to happen in Book 5. The set up was there at the end of Book 4 after all.
I really, really don’t think you’ll see this coming. I know I didn’t.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
