Wizard for Hire: Magic Required by Oberty Skye
Ozzy learns the truth about what happened to his parents and there is still a question on if Rin has real magical power or is just crazy. Clark and Rin returns in stunning fashion. Ray is still after Ozzy and the potion inside of him, leading to a confrontation of movie size proportions. Jon is still tracking Ozzy and Sigi, but for his own reasons now. Sheriff Wills is not sure what to believe about Rin, but is trying to protect Ozzy and Sigi from Ray.
While the book answers many questions, it also leaves the reader wanting more information and asking questions. What did Rin take from that safe? and how did know the combination? If this series truly is a trilogy, the reader might be sad to leave this magical world. However, the characters you have grown to love over the last three books are all in a good place (at least for now).
