This is more of a children or young adults story. It was written well and had some beautiful descriptions. I would suggest this story for educational purposes, as the story contains great moral issues.
It is written from the perspective of animals (actually there are no humans in it), it has the underlying message of how to deal with bullies,abuse and amongst other things friendship between different species. All in all I enjoyed the read and would love to see what the writer could ona more adult story level. I recommend you give this book a try.
I love Karen Chances writing and was overjoyed to see these three free gems in the form of short stories. This one links to one of the characters featured in the Cassandra Palmer books, Kit Marlowe a vampire who meets up with a witch in this story. The witch has been locked up with others of her kind, and they are being oppressed because of their magical skills.
Loved the small tidbit, wish there was more, maybe even Kits own book.
Great short story that features Tomas, a vampire from the Cassie Palmer series. It also introduces Sarah, a tough cookie armed to the back teeth , who is looking for her brother.
I loved the mix of magic, action and the possibility of a ne character on the Karen Chance horizont.
Another fantastic short story, which links in with the Queens Witch, Kit Marlowe and the Cassie Palmer series.
I would like to take this opportunity to ask Karen Chance to write more in the D. Basarab series, which I think is even more brilliant than the Cassie Palmer books.
Again another short novella, which links into the Cassandra Plamer series written by Karen Chance. This gives us a little more insight into Pritkin and Casanovas characters. A major demon is on the loose and Pritkins father asked him to take care of it, but that means leaving Cassie unprotected, so Pritkin asks Casanova to watch her. Casanova is half incubus demon and is the only one who can sense other demons (aside from Pritkin), so imagine his surprise when none other than Prikins father turns up to attack Cassie. Brilliant novella, which would be a great ne Cassie book.
This is written in a fresh bouncy YA way and I enjoyed it. Zillael (prob. spelt that wrong)is the type of older teen that always seems to be in detention, due to her attitude. She hates the small town she lives in, the people around her, the fact her mom is never around and of course the way everyone stares at her because she is a beauty. During a detention stint in which she has to serve punch to fellow classmates, she is attacked by vampire like beings and that is when she finds out that not only are some people around her not entirely human, but neither is she. The only thing that bothered me about the storyline is that it took me a while to figure out her age, because in the beginning she appears to be much younger (based on reactions in class and classmates) and it wasn't until the author mentioned a car she drove on occasion, that I realised she must be over 16. The scenes with the young male vamp in her bedroom are a bit racy (only a tidge, so I would recommend that the reader be over a certain age). THe book ends in a way that interestingly enough you have to read the first book to understand where and who Zill actually is. I recommend that readers of supernatural/para fantasy give this author a go
