  • Admire Her Spunk

    This review was first published on Kurt's Frontier. Synopsis: Cassandra Morgan Ursula Margaret Scot (call her Cassie) is the daughter of two powerful sorcerers and the oldest of seven children. You would think that would put her at the top of the world, except for one small problem. She is ungifted. She lives in two worlds: the world of magic and the mundane world of humanity. She belongs to neither. Trying to find a place for herself, she sets up shop as a private detective. While she steers clear of the paranormal, it isn’t easy having the family she does. A mundane investigation turns paranormal when she finds a local sorceress dead at an herb witch’s shop. It looks like a vampire. The victim’s cousin is a childhood friend and a powerful sorcerer. His family and the Scots are rivals. He needs Cassie’s help to find the killer. He’s also handsome, with such kissable lips. Cassie must navigate family problems, inter-family feuds, and vampires, while protecting those closest to her and staying alive. Review: Paranormal Mysteries are a staple of urban fantasy. Christine Amsden has created an interesting twist. People with no magic surviving in a world of magic is not new. However, someone who on paper should have powerful magic, surviving only on her knowledge of how it works, is interesting. Cassie is instantly sympathetic. The oldest of two powerful magic users, she feels that she can’t live up to their expectations. Add in sibling issues, boyfriend issues, girlfriend issues, job issues, vampire issues, and that fact she is determined to stand on her own in both worlds leaves the reader admiring her spunk. The author tells the story from the first person and does delve into backstory in a way the slows the forward action of the novel. However, the action keeps pulling the reader back in.

  • Mesmerizing story, emotional rollercoaster ride

    I really loved this book. Read it in one sitting. The author take you on a roller coaster ride in emotions regarding the main character Cassie. The story is really heart felt when she is the oldest in a family of 7 kids and has no magic. As hard as she tries to fit in it is to no avail and she feels left out. Her parents try to make her feel welcome and part of the family but in the end for their own reasons they disowned her to keep the magic #7 and are having a new baby to replace her. But because she is a null she doesn't belong so they feel she must leave. I really felt her betrayal alot and do not blame her for doing and reacting like she did. This is a great story that makes you want to read on and find out what happens to a girl born into a powerful magic family that has no power and what people will do to her. Oh and the vampire story was great too. Highly recommend this book.

    Thanks for your feedback!
