This is the story of a grandmother who knows magic, her twin grandchildren, and the struggle to survive when the odds are against them. It is also the story of sharing and caring for each other and others.
I was hooked on this story from the beginning. It is a forceful story of love and care even when the odds stack the deck against you. It is a story of an elderly grandmother that is capable of working magic. It is the story of demons, attempting to take over the world.
Jamie Marchant has created a wonderful world of magic and describes in such a way that the reader is drawn into it easily. Much of the story takes place in New Orleans, making the fantasy seem real at times. The story ends with room for a sequel. If you find yourself deep in the story, the ending may come as a surprise, and you too will find yourself thinking "Oh, no, it can't be yet!".
I can recommend to those who enjoy fantasy. The premise of the story is magic to be used to stop demons. It is a wonderful way to make magic become real, even if it is for a very short time. I like the style this author uses, and will be watching for more from her.
The book was well-written, and flowed easily, with well-developed characters. There is plenty of potential for further development with the characters that could lead into future books. The homeless man, Jake, possesses the potential to learn at least some magic, and there is a hint of romantic interest between him and and another character.
Would I'd like to see more of if this book is made into a series is further development of the fantasy world. This book shows fantasy characters in our world, but we could see the reverse with the other character, Jake, plucking him out of New Orleans. I wouldn't mind seeing more development of the demons either.
All in all, I really enjoyed this book. It's a sold addition to any urban fantasy library.
I do like the characters, though; I can see a lot of opportunities to develop more stories about Cassandra and her children and the flashbacks here are effective. I also think that this would make for a great young adult series.
I really enjoyed this book. I think this story has more to tell and would be first in line if the author decided to expand on it. All in all, great read.
