Jonathan Hawthorne has lived over a century beholden to one rule: do not meddle in mortal affairs. He’s broken it twice. So when he crosses paths with Cassidy Winters, he’s forced to interfere again.

Strike three. And the third time’s not the charm.

Hawthorne is swept along as Cassidy slips through the cracks in reality.

And being hunted by bands of monsters doesn’t help.

To find the answers they need, they’ll have to play in a dangerous world. One where the odds and rules are stacked against them. They will have to navigate magical courts, queens and lords all while trying to keep Cassidy out of their scheming hands.

If they fail, she will end up a pawn in a plot that will consume them all.

Hawthorne will have to face the consequences of his past, and risk his future to ensure Cassidy can have one of her own.

For a man with all the time in the world–it seems to be running out–fast!

***Valerie – #NerdGirlVal’s  Review***
I have read the Grave Report, book 1 and 2 by R.R. Virdi and liked them very much. When I got the chance to read Dangerous Ways, I jumped on it. I sure wasn’t disappointed by any means. This book was , oh what is the word? Outstanding! No it’s, Fantastic! No it’s, Exciting! No it’s all of them put together. This book had me right from the beginning. Full of mystery, action, fantasy, and real life. I have never read a book like this one before ( in a good way). I was so shocked to find out who was behind all of it. I tried to figure it out along the way, eliminating who I thought could be the one, but I was wrong. This book was fun to read and you went through most of your emotions too.
The story starts out in New York City, our time, in the winter. John is from the Timeless, he is a watcher, an observer and isn’t suppose to get involved with the humans in any way. Well that is hard for John, cause when he see’s a young adult girl being chased down the street by two hooded men, he just has to step in. And that is how he met Cassie.
Cassie has no idea why she is being chased and by whom. But John knows who the chasers are just by their smell, Trolls. Because of this, he has to see this through to the end, what ever that might me. And so the adventure of John and Cassie starts and boy is it an adventure. You have glamour monsters, The Ageless and Timeless. You have Queens from a different dimension and Ways like you wouldn’t believe. All this makes for an exciting story and that it is. I don’t want to divulge to much so not to take away from any of it.
This book is a stand alone, but leaves room for a book 2 and I sure hope there is one. So if you like fantasy, mystery, action, a very small touch of romance and a whole lot of amazing reading, then this book is for you. So get your’s and enjoy! I know I did!
