Once a Witch by Carolyn MacCullough

Once again, I find myself liking a book that I thought I wouldn’t. Funny thing about this is I go out looking for books like this. It’s so much fun reading a book almost hoping to not like it, and then find that you do. I’m a nerd like that. Yes, I know.

So, on with the review! I have to say that the beginning of the book. Say, the first half, was really slow. I definitely think that there could have been less back story and more action. But the second half went really fast and I enjoyed it a lot.

It is a little cliche. I mean, it’s the classic story. Girl has problem, drama arises with problem, something happens to fix the problem, drama about that, and then its done. Oh and on the way girl finds guy from the past. But…the whole witch thing was interesting. I liked the fact that there was time travel. It wasn’t the greatest book or anything, but it was worth the read.

All in all a great first book. Wonder what else the author will write about. Oh, and I almost forgot!!! I loved the main characters name, Tamsin. Very Wicca-ish!

Dragon Wytch by Yasmine Galenorn

I really really really had a hard time reading this book. Which is so disappointing to me. I don’t know what it was though. The writing was well done and the imagery was good. Maybe I just wasn’t in the mood for this type of novel. I don’t know. It took me forever to finally finish.

Camille, Delilah and Menolly are back at it again. They are after the third spirit seal and so are Shadowwing’s Demon warriors. Between fighting goblins, given a special gift from the Dahn’s Unicorn Prince and having 3 non-human lovers, Camille must¬†push aside her emotions and step-up to the plate…again. Will she be able to juggle all that life is giving her and still remain sane? Or will the Demon’s finally get something that they¬† have always treasured?

That’s it for this review. Hopefully I can do better on the next book.

Cry Wolf by Patricia Briggs

In this new serious out by the author of Moon Called , Blood Bound and Iron Kissed, we get a whole new twist on Samuel’s brother Charles and the entire werewolf pack. Charles saved Anna from her pack in Chicago, where she was beaten, raped, and humiliated. Anna is known as an Omega wolf, one that cannot be submissive or an alpha. She is very rare and something the wolves cherish. Charles and Anna now have to work through the fact that their wolves have mated, yet they don’t really know each other that well.

Anna has a hard time trusting anyone, yet her wolf tells her that she can trust fully in Charles. She has been beaten to the point of fearing any man, yet she still has the strength to live even though she was so badly abused. Bran, Charles’ father and Marrok of all packs, believes that she will bring peace to his pack and to Charles.

Of course nothing goes smoothly and there is a rogue werewolf killing people and animals in Bran’s territory. Charles, his assassin and enforcer, is sent out to find the rogue and take care of him. Anna, not knowing what she is getting herself into asks to come along. Bran allows this, thinking it will bring Anna and Charles closer together. Little did he know that it would not only bring Charles and Anna closer, but the entire pack is endanger of dying.

Rogue werewolves, witches, spirits, and crazy wolves all come together in this new series to make it action packed. You will keep reading into the wee hours of the night, wanting to know what happens to everyone and how the outcome finally resolves. This is definitely a page turner.

I actually liked the action and storyline a little better in this series than the Mercedes Thompson series. But I say that right after reading this book. Who knows, after the next in the Mercedes series I may have switched my tune.
