Book Description

Easy part of his day? Resurrecting the dead. Hard part? Keeping them alive.

Kaede is a witch whose family has been bound to a powerful House for over a thousand years. And he hates it. Despite the fact that his lord, Tarou, murdered his mother, Kaede is sworn never to harm the man who could kill him with just seven words. Now he’s been commanded to use his unique powers to resurrect Tarou’s wife from the dead, and he has no choice but to comply. Things go horribly wrong when he accidentally pulls the wrong soul back. Now it’s not just his own life he must try to save.

Vara’s day couldn’t get much more bizarre. One moment she’s a captain in the Temple Guard. The next, she finds herself transported into a world of magic and witches—and stuffed into the body of a lord’s wife. Unwillingly plunged into middle of a deadly power struggle, the only one Vara can turn to is Kaede, the witch responsible for dragging her into this alien world. A witch she finds far too attractive…

2.0 out of 5 stars Had Lots of Promise December 16, 2009
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I don't do reviews often, but I just had to do one on this book. When I read the product discription I was instantly attracted to this book. The promise of what the story and characters could be instantly snared me, that promise is the only reason why I gave the book two stars. The story felt so rushed I didn't even feel the romance between the characters. It just seemed like two people who wanted to have sex with each other, but were both in a bad situation so they needed to work together and get out if that too, but not before they had sex. Oh and the sex was like what a paragraph. There wasn't anything deep about this book even the explination of the entire plot and purpose of the story at the end of the book seemed rushed. Nothing was really explained or clear for me. It was like the author I had a really good dream about a world and wanted to share it, but didn't go deep into the characters emotions. Like I said the book had a lot of promise but fell flat for me.

4.0 out of 5 stars More Necro than Witch January 11, 2010
By Oliva
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was looking for a quick story to read before bed and had no idea what this book was about before I started to read it. I seem to be in the minority here however I enjoyed this short story and ended up staying awake later than I planned just to finish it. It could have been a full length novel however I didn't think it was too short to get the tale across.

Kaede sounded more like a necromancer than a witch and definitely more intellectual than brawn. Some more details on Vara, other than how she died, would have been nice filler however not really necessary I suppose.

4.0 out of 5 stars An interesting teaser.... December 25, 2009
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I just finished this short story and came back to see if there are more... alas, no. Or, not yet anyway. I really enjoyed this tale-I found it interesting, fast paced, and altogether enjoyable. I hope that this author chooses to continue this storyline. There are many mysteries that still need to be solved- and I am looking forward to reading about them. I want to know more about Kaeds' power, why there is only one appropriate mate for a magic user, and more about Vara, who turns out to be the lucky girl.
This is a short read, but the concepts are new and refreshing.

4.0 out of 5 stars More story, please! January 8, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this book overall, once I figured out kind of where the story was going. This the first and only book I have read to this point by this author. About halfway through, I started to wonder if this was a sequal to another novel because there are so many unexplained happenings. I can't see that it is specifically a sequal or the beginning of a series. If it is a setup for a series, it is a pretty good start. If it is intended to be stand-alone fiction, it needs expansion. Right from the beginning, there are many things which are not well explained. This book kind of leaves you hanging in regard to the whys and hows. You are left knowing what has happened, but are not quite clear on the whys and hows. A sequal or two would probably complete this story. Like another reviewer mentioned, I would really have liked to know why/how Annaliese came to require resurrection in the first place. This chapter one mystery is only the first of many unexplained events in this intriguing story.

1.0 out of 5 stars no likable characters December 18, 2009
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm glad it was free, that way I didn't feel guilty for deleting this book from my Kindle after 3 chapters. No likable characters, and I absolutely hate a weak, Omega male for the "hero", and a witch for a "heroine".

5.0 out of 5 stars Weaving Words June 26, 2010
By MNix
Format:Kindle Edition
Kaede, a witch (and our hero if the name threw you), is commanded to resurrect his lord's wife, the Lady Annaliese Gaute. If he fails, he'll share the same fate of his mother...and be burned to ash by Lord Tarou's Seven Words. Unfortunately, if he succeeds, he might still be burned to ash for knowing too much.

How the Lady Annaliese died is a mystery. Where her soul went, another mystery, but the woman sucked back into Annaliese's body is most certainly not the demure pet of the overbearing Lord Tarou. Captain Vara Haradt died protecting her temple and her priests from an attack by wolf-men. After being eaten alive, she doesn't expect to wake up in the gorgeous and helpless body of Annaliese. Nor does she anticipate the instant attraction she shares with Kaede.

The plot of this tale is as intricate as a Celtic knot. Lord Tarou desires to be king but one can only be born to that position. Lady Annaliese, before her death, promised to make him one. The witch's book left behind by Annaliese indicates she's found a way to jump from body to body, shuffling souls around like a magician hiding cards. Vara and Kaede need to figure out how to meet Tarou's demands without getting killed by their present lord and potentially future king, and tracking down the location of the clever Annaliese's soul is just as vexing a problem.

Do you like your comfort reading uncomplicated? Boy meets girl. Boy propositions girl. Boy and girl have wild bunny sex. If so, you may want to pause at the end of this story and contemplate throwing your e-reader against the wall. Me? I loved this tale. Give me body-snatchers, witches, poisonings, and espionage. Bring on the scheming women, the sword-toting chicks, and the dudes that play with dead body parts.

More About the Author

I live on an ancient boundary line, once marked by a Neolithic burial tomb. The tomb's now a standing stone circle-thank the Georgians for that one-and stirs my mind with thoughts of history and ancient myths. I mix the essence of the past into fantasy, along with the essential mix of magic and sex. I also writes science fiction romance, pushing out into the far future with effortlessly sexy men and the women who can't resist them.

I'm multipublished, having books at Ellora's Cave, Samhain Publishing, Loose Id, Liquid Silver Books and Carina Press. You can contact me on my website or come and chat at my blog: www.darknessandromance.wordpress.com
