A Shattered Silver Crown (San Amaro Investigations #4) by Kai Butler

Welcome back to San Amaro, where paranormal murders and annoying brownies are just another day in the busy life of private investigator Parker Ferro. Keeping being a fae is becoming increasingly difficult and Parker is struggling to hold together the most important thing in his life, his found family.

From the A Shattered Silver Crown blurb:

Parker Ferro is fine.

Sure, he’s still recovering from his last case and his sister has started keeping secrets, but that’s just another day in the life of the Windrose of San Amaro.

Then the local werewolf alpha calls in a favor when he's turned on by his own pack and the last thing Parker wants to do is get mired in the city's pack politics. Throw in the recent murder of a local cult leader with disturbing connections to the hidden fae in San Amaro, a long lost relative showing up to reconnect, and a group of brownies taking up residence in his car, and Parker cannot catch a break.

Hopefully he can solve this case and figure out some family secrets before everything blows up in his face, taking the city along with it.

A Shattered Silver Crown is a 120k MM urban fantasy with a HFN ending and an ongoing storyline. It cannot be read as a standalone.

SNik's Review:

Fourth in series (San Amaro Investigations), must be read in order due to continuing characters and overarching storyline. Paranormal urban fantasy. Hurt/comfort. Established couple. 

As usual, private investigator Parker is juggling his business, the duties of being the Windrose, his sister acting oddly, the political pressures of being a fae consultant for the world tree and any unusual paranormal murders, which hasn’t left him much time to grieve for the loss of his mom. 

Keeping secret that he is fae is becoming more and more difficult, and Parker is feeling the strain of trying to keep his found family close as his fear of abandonment rears its ugly head once again. 

Lots of action and fae magic, the story felt a little more chaotic than usual for this series even though each book has always had quite a bit going on, and there were constant interruptions or pauses to important conversations which was frustrating. 

Still a lot of questions up in the air, and Parker’s secrets and relationships are getting a whole lot of pressure from outside which made this book have a very serious undertone. 

Overall a good addition to the series as we delve more into Parker’s background, this world and characters are very much a favorite of mine and this was a very entertaining read.
