More About the Author

I started writing in High School, which was a long long long time ago. I have a couple novels and tons of short stories in my basement as proof that I haven't stopped since.
The only difference now is I publish the things I write and that means others get to enjoy them and not just that weird troll that lives in my basement. I started reading about vampires when I was introduced to Anne Rice's Interview with a Vampire. I loved Lestat and still do. I took a break from it and then I read Charlaine Harris' Sookie Stackhouse Series. Sookie is a character that has flaws, but you like her anyway. She tries her best and she evolves with the books. I wanted to do the same with Cassandra and I think I have.
I'm not a one trick pony either. I run a small hobby farm, we grow veggies and fruit. I love photography, my pictures are always going up on my twitter feed.

Ever read a book that you know should have had some things written in a bit different way, BUT you keep reading, and you also want to read the next one? That’s exactly what happened with this book for me.
Cassandra is attending a witch college and is getting ready to graduate along with her closest friend and roommate, Lena. She goes home for Thanksgiving, horrible things ensue, and upon returning back to school, she is told that due to her circumstances(not telling!) she must take her final exam that day. Let’s just say, final exams at a witch college aren’t exactly done on paper, or orally for that matter. Cassandra loses something major after this. The story jumps five years. I had a problem with that. During that time, she is meets a vampire named Quintus, who gives her a job. And he really cares about her. I would have liked to have seen how all that came about and then the story could have jumped. On top of that, Lena has been left behind without another word. Really? Best friends and nothing? Made little sense to me and I loved Lena’s character, so I missed her in the rest of the story. Cassandra has a male roommate named Declan; she wants him but he seemingly doesn’t want her. And then there’s Quintus’s only son Lucius, also a vampire, who really likes Cassandra too. Yes, totally team Lucius here. This ramps up the usual love triangle to something more like a rectangle.
This book ends up being about a witch with some really different powers and along the way, vampires, werewolves, and the Fae are introduced into the story. The character of Cassandra, while I liked her a lot in the beginning, ended up being a bit wishy washy at times-jumping around about who she wants to be with, and generally made me want to yell at her at times.

A lot of what I like about Electa Graham's books can be found right from the get go in Blood and Loss. There is magic and there is danger in this world, but she does not overdo it - basically, anything she can assume her reader will intuit, she leaves out until needed. It allows her to focus on character and pace, both of which are consistent. The 'feel' of the relationships are right. You are meant to fill in the gaps as you go.

Graham not only writes from the first person perspective, but there is a fair bit of 'stream of consciousness' and 'internal monolog' going on. It can be a little distracting to get into, but becomes an effective device as the story progresses. Cassandra's reactions and feelings, often sarcastic, reveal a lot more of her intentions and feelings than straight prose would, and Graham is able to weave her story around this method. Descriptions focus on what is happening in the now, and Cassandra's internal reactions serve to provide the heft the story requires. Graham does not simply want to take you from horror scene to sex scene and back, she wants to take you on a ride, and a fulfilling one at that, depending on what cup of tea you're looking for that day.

I really hate to use the term 'shades of grey' these days - especially when talking about adult-oriented fiction - but I want to use the term as it was originally intended. There are very few black and white characters here. For every strength a character possesses, there is a frailty, a weakness, something to overcome. That might put some readers off. But you cannot have white without black in an Electa Graham book, and that adds a layer to the characters that elevates it above some of the other books of its kind.

Vampires, witches, wolves, not really what I am used to reading but horror and sex yes, and now I am hooked in all! This book had all the above and the way Electa wrote, bought me into the story and I never looked back.

Now onto Blood and Redemption in the Cassandra Myles Witch Series.

Thank you Electa for taking me outside of my box of my normal book genre!

I just finished the Kindle edition of this book last night, and I have to say I very much enjoyed it. First person isn't usually my cup of tea, but it worked well here. Blood & Loss is one of those books that's damned easy to turn page after page; you don't feel like you're struggling to get through it at all, despite the occasional sense that the story was still finding its feet and dithering slightly.
The character of Cassandra is complex, although I get the feeling that Electa Graham is keeping much of the hinted-at complexity to be revealed in more depth in later books in the series. For me, the story came in two distinct parts, the first being much shorter. I really enjoyed the first part, and I was intrigued to discover which direction the rest of the story was going to go. For much of the second part, the story revolved around the titular character and three secondary characters; one of these was extremely interesting and very likeable; the second was at first annoying, but over time managed to win me over; the third, for me, was unlikeable and annoying from the offset, and my views on that character didn't change right up to finishing the book.
Cassandra's earlier choices were understandable, and the bad ones she made were thankfully turned around (either by her own will or by the intervention of a friend), but a couple of her later choices (again, only from my perspective) were questionable. Especially later in the story, I found myself wanting to yell at her and tell her it was a bad idea to do what she was doing. However, this was rectified in the final chapter when a particular event made me grin and punch the air, thankful that a certain element had (seemingly) been removed from the board.
