Editorial Reviews


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 ReviewCassie 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?

Amidst 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.

Christine has been writing science fiction and fantasy for as long as she can remember. She loves to write and it is her dream that others will be inspired by this love and by her stories. Speculative fiction is fun, magical, and imaginative but great speculative fiction is about real people defining themselves through extraordinary situations. Christine writes primarily about people and it is in this way that she strives to make science fiction and fantasy meaningful for everyone.

At the age of 16, Christine was diagnosed with Stargardt's Disease, a condition that effects the retina and causes a loss of central vision. She is now legally blind, but has not let this slow her down or get in the way of her dreams.

In addition to writing, Christine teaches workshops on writing at Savvy Authors. She also does some freelance editing work.

Christine currently lives in the Kansas City area with her husband, Austin, who has been her biggest fan and the key to her success. They have two beautiful children.

Let me start off by saying...WOW! I was immediately sucked into this story and I could not put it down. I think the book was well written and the storyline is enthralling.

Cassie was a smart and strong willed character dispite feeling like an outsider within her own family. Without spoiling it, let me just say her family really ticked me off, well her parents anyway.
Anyhow, I really want to know more about her and Evan!

This was an excellent start to what could be a fantastic (and long) series, and there are so many directions it could go. I will be reading the next book as soon as it is available!

What a different story with such wonderful characters. Cassie is a great heroine with such messed up parents! I hated them, loved her. I am looking forward to getting to know Evan better. His personality was just starting to emerge when the book ended. I can't wait to find out what gift Cassie has, because I think she has one. The story has so much to offer and the possibilities are swirling around in my head. I hope the author can get some of those possibilities down on paper so I can read the next book without too much of a wait! Great job. Thanks for the great read.

I have been thoroughly charmed and caught in a spell spun by Christine Amsden. I am not sure what I expected of Cassie Scot but what I got was a lovable and charming character that has won me over. Cassie a "Marilyn Munster" in a magical family has to carve her own way. When nothing is done for the simple reason of favor but has repercussions and debts to be paid, it can be a little tricky. Cassie runs her own detective agency and works with her former boss the police chief to solve magical/normal cases.

When a client comes into the office with hopes of Cassie serving a subpoena to a love potion making witch thing go from easy to puzzling when Cassie finds a dead body. Only the dead body turns out to be cousin to a powerful and childhood friend/crush Evan. A sorcerer that is rumored to place love spells on the women he meets. They begin to work together to find out who is behind the murders and quickly become gossip.

Added to the mayhem is a crazy and magical family that all live together in one house. All of Cassie's siblings have magical ability. It is a wildly funny and chaotic atmosphere. All is not perfect in this household. Feeling less than and not good enough has plagued Cassie since childhood and continues.

Cassie struggles to figure out who she is and who she can trust. It's hard with so many secrets and lies swirling around. Cassie is beginning to realize someone wants her dead. Who will help her? Who will cast her aside and who can she trust?

Such a good story that when I finished I immediately searched for book 2. Sadly we will have to wait till November. ((sad face)) I want it now mummy!

Wow! Cassie Scot: ParaNormal Detective by Christine Amsden was so much fun to read. This is going to be a terrific series. With strong characters, magic, Vampires AND love interests, it has everything. You Do Not Want to Miss This!!!!

This is my first read from Christine Amsden, so I was not sure what I was getting into, but once I was in, I was hooked. Easily. With so many conflicts going on, Cassie is surprisingly well put together. She thinks she is 'normal' but I think maybe her strength of character and fearlessness may be more of a gift than she is willing to acknowledge. I loved the mystery and suspense, and will always remember the 'smack my head' moment when I figured it out.

. Book Title 10 of 10
I must say, it's a very ingenious way to present a title. In fact, when I read it the first time...I had to do a double take to make sure I was really seeing the strike-thru on the word PARA. And when I was convinced that I wasn't crazy...that, indeed, it was intended to look like that I thought to myself, 'now what is that about'. Is this Cassie a detective with some sort of ESP that she tries to keep hidden? OR is she somebody everybody assumes has ESP because she just that good of a detective? (I envisioned a humble Sherlock Holmes sort of gal). With questions like those simmering in the back of my head...I had to find out for myself what was up with the strike-thru! And for a book title to catch my attention in such a way that it draws up 2 possible scenarios (both of which I later found out were wrong) well, that's a really good thing!

2. Book Cover 7 of 10
I'll admit, I wasn't blown away by the artwork on the cover. It seems stiff and unreal. The woman sitting by the lake has an almost mannequin appearance to her and honestly, until I read the story and figured out what the thing is at her ear, I thought she had a strange growth. (Now that I do know what it makes sense BUT when I wrote down my initial thoughts on the cover I had to 'keep it real' and envision myself as a reader cruising through the aisles of a book store. I didn't look at it and go 'WOW! Now, that's a cool looking book!')

3. First 500...
