Review: Undone Deeds by Mark Del Franco

Undone Deeds is the sixth and final installment in the Connor Grey series by Mark Del Franco and an ACE Urban Fantasy.

Book Blurb:

Connor Grey, a druid consultant for the Boston PD, usually helps the cops solve their ‘strange’ cases, but now he’s the suspect in the midst of one.  Wrongly accused of a terrorist attack that rocked the city to its core, Connor evades arrest by going underground, where rumors of war are roiling.  A final confrontation between the Celtic and Teutonic fey looks inevitable - with Boston as the battlefield.

Undercover agents are turning up dead in the Weird - their murders brushed aside and ignored - and Conor exposes a citywide conspiracy of silence that seems linked to the inexorable march to war.  As he digs deeper into the mysterious deaths, Connor draws closer to the secrets of a past he has sought for so long.  And as friends and allies abandon him one by one, Connor discovers that in the clash between light and dark, and in the face of a cataclysm of epic proportions, he might have to make the ultimate sacrifice to save the world.

My thoughts:

Connor Grey has always been able to see both the light and dark side and he’s always tried to do his best to stay within the boundaries he’s set for himself.

He is openly vocal about his feelings for both the Guild and the Seelie Court and makes no apologies for it.  But now those around him are beginning to feel the consequences of his actions.

The fey are gearing up for war - and Connor is caught in the middle.  When long lost memories surface, Connor realizes that he has the ability to stop the war - to save human lives.  He is just not sure of the cost - to himself, or those he holds dear.

Undone Deeds is a fabulous ending to a series that I have enjoyed reading.  I am hopeful that we have not heard the last of Connor Grey.

I give Undone Deeds 4 out of 5 stars.

I have read and enjoyed books 1-4, but for no particular reason book 5 has been placed on the backburner. Looks like it's time for me to catch up!
