Okay, first off, I need happy thoughts for my proposals that went to my editor today. I love everything I sent her and really, really want to write those books. :-) And the YA is making the rounds so think good thoughts there too.
A friend sent me a review for the new book “Charmed & Deadly” from Romantic Times Magazine and it’s a really good one. It received four and half stars, which is the best. Here’s what they said…
Bronwyn is back — and kicking major butt! Told in journal format with a snarky, humorous edge, the high witch’s adventures get more complicated and dangerous. Super-talented Havens keeps doing a bang-up job with this highly entertaining, magical series that’s just a tad offbeat and filled with unforgettable characters. Here’s to many more adventures with Bronwyn and the gang!
Summary: With great power comes great responsibility, and Bronwyn’s up to her ears in both as she tries to protect the prime minister and fend off a killer ex-boyfriend. Powerful as she is, Bronwyn’s used to winning her battles, but this time she’s up against something new.
When her mentor and friend, the wizard Garnout, is kidnapped, Bronwyn swears dire consequences against the culprit. Adding to her worries is the sudden disappearance of her brother and father. Desperate to find her missing friends and family, Bronwyn may find her powers stretched to the limit. (BERKLEY, Jun., 256 pp., $14.00) HOT
Isn’t that cool? :-)
So what are you guys reading? I just finished Season of the Witch by Natasha Mostert. Very interesting book, and different from what the title might imply. Cool read.
