  • Waters of Chaos on June 25, 2012

    Waters of Chaos introduces readers to a new world of magic filled with intrigue and romance. When we first meet our heroine, Mandy, she is embarking on her first case as the new witch with the Paranormal Activities Bureau. Of course, rookies never have it easy and Mandy quickly learns that her missing person’s case—or missing mer-man, as the case may be—isn’t quite as cut and dry as it seems. She and her powerfully magical ex-boyfriend (last name of Merlin – ring any bells?) suddenly become missing persons themselves. However, this might just give them the time they need to work out their relationship issues. I really enjoyed the breath of fresh air this story lent to a world of magic in a present day setting. My only complaint is that this story is entirely too short. The missing person premise could be expanded to take the reader on a longer hunt, thereby giving the reader a little more time to get to know Mandy and her oft-mentioned independent streak. This story clearly demonstrates the potential to expand into a promising new series and I eagerly await the next installment.
  • Once an Angel on July 29, 2012

    Another fun read by Claudette Gilbert – Once an Angel drops reader right into the thick of things when our heroine, Ella, is captured by the very foe that she’d planned to vanquish. It doesn’t help that she’s chained up with a man who just so happens to be a fallen Angel sans any powers to help. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that he’s extremely handsome. I really enjoyed Ella’s no-nonsense attitude and her amusing analysis of her new angelic companion. However, I did wish we had a little more character back story for Ella and would love to have seen her in action against another monster before she faced the Harpy’s and paired up with the angel. Still, this was a fun read and I look forward to reading more about Ella’s adventures.
