EJ Knapp was born during a thunderstorm in Detroit, Michigan, several years before the Motor City discovered fins. Raised in a working-class, blue-collar neighborhood, he morphed into the stereotypical hoodlum a teenager growing up on the west side of Detroit was expected to be. Dropping out of high school at sixteen, he hit the road in his ‘60 Chevy and has, in one way or another, been rolling down that road ever since.

- The Last Witch of Manhattan
on Jan. 02, 2011
The Last Witch of Manhattan is a buckle-your-seatbelt kind of ride with more twists and turns and interweaving than a box full of pretzels. Mr. Lewis throws everything but the kitchen sink at you, including the statues in Central Park. Surprisingly, and enjoyably, he makes it work.
Part supernatural, part sci-fi, part thriller, it is a complex, and might I add fresh, blend of science, Balinese and Judeo-Christian mythology centered around the proverbial clash between good and evil.
Much of the enjoyment I found in Last Witch was the depth and complexity of all the characters, both major and minor. They have their quirks, their foibles, their moments of insanity. One minute you like them, the next you don't and the moment after that, you're not so sure which way to go. This was a real treat.
There was also some very good writing in here. Descriptions that didn't bog the story down, rich metaphors and more than a few laughs.
Last Witch is definitely a must read.
