From Publisher's Weekly:
"In this entertaining series opener, Amsden (The Immortality Virus) introduces readers to the eponymous Cassie, a decidedly mundane member of a magical family. ...Readers will enjoy Cassie's fish-out-of-water struggles as she fights magical threats with little more than experience and bravado."
Kim Falconer, bestselling author of The Spell of Rosette, Quantum Enchantment Series, had this to say:
"When sorcerers call the shots, what's a girl without powers to do? Get ready for a ripper of a murder mystery full of romance and intrigue, where magic potions bubble, passions spark and vampires are definitely not your friend. Cassie Scot: ParaNormal Detective grabs you by the heart and won't let go until the very last page. Well written, immersive and unputdownable. This is urban fantasy at its best. More please!"
Midwest Book Review: Cassie Scot is a fun and interesting take on a magical fantasy world existing within the real. It is a mix of the popular fantasy stories and a solid whodunit. It fits between the children fantasies of JK Rowling and the adult tales of Charlaine Harris -- a bit closer to Sookie than Harry. The plotline is light and the mystery is sound. What makes the story work is the solid world creation Amsden has built.
From the Author
In a world of sorcery, what's a girl without magic to do?
mystery, romance, and family feuds, this "new adult" series
shows us that there are many types of strength, and many ways to be a
hero. Cassie is smart, compassionate, clever, and brave. Yet she is
burdened by doubt because she is the only member of her large family
without magical powers. She calls herself a "normal detective,"
but there is little normal about her.
