The underlying themes of this book--magic, alchemy, the power of our imagination & the oneness of the universe--were done in such a way as to introduce the reader to these concepts without being heavy handed. And I'm looking forward to researching and learning more about the information the author gives us.
I enjoy the metaphysical aspect of the books, but could do without the heavy, predictable romance crap. Really takes down the tone of the whole book.
I started out loving the characters & the story so much, I couldn't wait to finish and buy the 1st installment in the series. I'm glad I waited. The story played out predictably and by the end I no longer cared about what had happened in Paris and how Riga got & lost her magical powers.
I rarely purchase Kindle books (much preferring the Free ones :-) but am very pleased to have spent the $$ on this one and I can hardly wait to read the next!!
Riga is an excellent character and believable as a reluctant witch with her acerbic wit and knack for getting into trouble!! And the character of the Gargoyle is sheer genius!!
Keep up the great writing!!!
A fan in Pennsylvania.
In this second book of the series, Riga is in a bit of a tough spot, what with having lost her magic and all. But never fear, Brigitte is here, and encourages Riga to pick up her study of Alchemy to remedy the situation. What could go wrong?
The story is more detective than bodice-ripper, which I appreciate, and the characters are interesting and well-drawn. The author drops tantalizing hints about Riga's history, while still maintaining a suitable air of mystery.
Apropos of some criticisms I've read in the reviews: This is not a grimoire. You will not learn dark arts within these pages. The author does know her paranormal stuff, though, and provides a convincing and compelling world for Riga and the others to inhabit.
I look forward to book 7!
This book combines some of my favorite paranormal concepts. It is definitely worth reading. I give this book 4 out of 5 clouds.
