Sweet Evil

I must admit, I wasn't expecting a book on angels and demons to be like this. I'm shocked. When I first started reading Sweet Evil, I was prepared to be disappointed, in fact, I'm always prepared. I hate getting my hopes up and then find it...

Bewitched by Bewitching

So here I am typing; trying to figure out how to start this review. I tend to do that a lot with a book I enjoyed. Before I start, let me just say this: I cheated. I did not read book 1 (which happens to be...

Pushing the Limits

Don't let the pages discourage you! Worth it!

Do you believe there are ghosts and demons and Diviners among us? I knew, from the minute I read the description, that this book was the one for me: flappers, diviners, ghosts, speakeasies, pickpockets, Broadway plays, jazz and gin... magic.
