Juli D. Revezzo has long been in love with writing, a love built by devouring everything from the Arthurian legends, to the works of Michael Moorcock, and the classics and has a soft spot for classic the “Goths” of the 19th century. Her short fiction has been published in Dark Things II: Cat Crimes, The Scribing Ibis, Eternal Haunted Summer, Twisted Dreams Magazine and Luna Station Quarterly and Crossed Genres' "Posted stories for Haiti relief" project, while her non-fiction has been included in The Scarlet Letter. She has also, on occasion, edited the popular e-zine Nolan's Pop Culture Review... But her heart lies in the storytelling. She is a member of the Independent Author Network.

Caitlin's Book of Shadows is, as it's called, a story set between books 1 and 2 of Juli D. Revezzo's Antique Magic series. As such, it's not necessarily something one should read and expect to understand without having read the first book, The Artist's Inheritance. That said, as a continuation of Caitlin's and Trevor's life, and adventures, together, Caitlin's Book of Shadows is a great story. We get to see a bit of the emotional aftermath of the events in book one, we get to see Cait and Trevor putting in effort to get their relationship back to okay, and we get to see how they begin to integrate the changes fate and life threw at them. And we get some foreshadowing of the book yet to come.
There is a trend for shorter works to be released between books, either on author websites, exclusive mailing lists, or, now, in e-book format, and as a reader, I have to say I honestly enjoy this trend, and one I'm glad Ms. Revezzo has decided to take part in.

This was a really interesting and creative "bookend" to The Artist's Inheritance, although you could read it either before or after and enjoy it. I liked reading a little about Caitlin's descendants, as well as having a peek into Caitlin's life after The Artist's Inheritance. Well done, and I can hardly wait to see more about the Celtic goddess Arianrhod.The Artist's Inheritance: Antique Magic series (Volume 1)
