Review: Roundtable Nights (Druid Detective Agency #2) by Theophilus Monroe

Roundtable Nights

Druid Detective Agency #2

by Theophilus Monroe

Published: April 29, 2024

Genre: Witches, Wizards, Mystery, Magical Realism, Fantasy


What if all your nightmares came true?

The "mare" used to be contained in people's dreams.

Now, it takes flesh when you wake.

It disappears as soon as it completes its task...

...killing its host.

How can I possibly catch or kill a monster that only emerges from one's sleep?

I can't figure out how it's choosing its victims.

There's not a thread I can follow to figure out who it will strike next.

My only chance to beat the monster will be to lure it into 
my dreams and kill the damned thing before it gets away.

There's no guarantee the mare will take the bait.

But if I don't kill it soon, more people will die. And it won't stop until it destroys 

Roundtable Nights is the second book in the new Druid Detective Agency urban fantasy series. Elijah and Emilie already went through one adventure. Now, ten years after The Druid Legacy, they are facing a new challenge, one that will test their limits. The real threat isn't the otherworldly magic, the magic that once birthed life itself in Eden/Annwn. There was a reason why humanity was cast from the garden groves. When the magic of that place comes home, it won't take long to find out why. The real threat was here all along, hidden in human hearts, now made manifest by the power of creation itself.

Harry Potter meets Harry Dresden in Druid Detective Agency.

You'll encounter dragons and other mythical creatures. Facing them is nothing compared to fighting with monsters born of the human mind.

My Review:

Roundtable Nights is the second book in the Druid Detective Agency by Theophilus Monroe. I thought the first book in the Druid Detective Agency was the best but then I hadn’t read Roundtable Nights book two either. This series just gets better with each book or more like turn of the page.

Like Merlin’s Mantle, Roundtable Nights starts off with a blast and never lets up from the first page until the last. The twists and turns just keep on coming page after page. I couldn’t believe what was happening I was kept in suspense on every page. I mean there were so many twists I was kept on the edge of my seat as I raced to the end watching as they unraveled.

Monsters were appearing right out of nightmares and becoming real. Once their victim awoke the nightmares became flesh and blood. Elijah Wadsoworth a Druid and his wife, Emilie a Bard and their son Merlin, who run the Druid Detective Agency are trying to find a way to stop the nightmares from becoming real. But how do you fight a nightmare?

After the mare leaps from a nightmare and becomes real by taking over its host body and completing its mission the host dies. How can you stop something that you have no idea where or when is going to strike next?

Come join Elijah, Emilie, and their son Merlin on this thrilling and epic journey as they fight the fear that haunts nightmares!

I highly recommend Roundtable Nights to anyone who loves a good mystery along with some magic! Grab a copy of Roundtable Nights today and join the fun!
