When she's not helping people with beneficial spells, Carlie makes the worlds best waffles and kills things that go bump in the night, like Wendigo's.
When Carlie is approached by a stranger looking for a guide into the woods, her first instinct is to say no. Until she's shown the picture of a half circle of American chestnut trees, a variety thought to be extinct. That's not what holds Carlie's interest. There's something about that half circle. Something familiar about the tumble of stones behind it.
And it's Carlie's gran who knows why. It's an old family story, one past due to be wrapped up.
The magic in Halfway Dead is more in line with the natural world. Enough so that I was surprised when a vampire turned up with talk of werewolves and shifters. The forest teems with a full compliment of fae and that forest is every bit as much a character as the people in the story.
There was a potential bad guy and a string of murders that are mentioned, but never develop into anything Carlie has to worry about. The end of the story comes quickly and gives us a peek at what the direction the next book might take. Shifters, a missing girl, and an amorous vampire - oh my! I look forward to the next Halfway book.
Carlie is a white witch. And even though I know absolutely nothing about witchcraft, I found myself enthralled by the descriptions of how her magic was a piece of herself. She didn't come off as entitled or uppity because she had power, but instead loved being a down-to-earth cook at the local diner. She really reminded me of Dean Koontz's "Odd Thomas," which is one of my favorite books of all time.
The story was enthralling and drew me in immediately. If I didn't have a job, husband, or kids, I would've read the story straight through! Curse you, responsibilities!
Memorable lines were placed naturally throughout the book. I won't spoil any that relate to direct plot points, but these are a few of my favorites:
"Even sitting, he towered over me, but not in threatening way, unless you consider good customer service to be a menace to your person. I did not, so I smiled."
"when my hair gets crazy, it becomes an alien life form that can threaten cities."
Carlie is full of great lines and passion for her craft. Imagery of the moon and scenery puts the reader directly into the story.
SO, to sum up, if you like waffles, magic, evil, the moon, love, deceit, and just an all-around great read, pick up "Halfway Dead" by Terry Maggert!
Synopsis (from the author): Carlie McEwan loves many things.
She loves being a witch. She loves her town of Halfway, NY—a tourist destination nestled on the shores of an Adirondack lake. Carlie loves her enormous familiar, Gus, who is twenty-five pounds of judgmental Maine Coon cat, and she positively worships her Grandmother, a witch of incredible power and wisdom. Carlie spends her days cooking at the finest—and only—real diner in town, and her life is a balance between magic and the mundane, just as she likes it.
When a blonde stranger sits at the diner counter and calls her by name, that balance is gone. Major Pickford asks Carlie to lead him into the deepest shadows of the forest to find a mythical circle of chestnut trees, thought lost to forever to mankind. There are ghosts in the forest, and one of them cries out to Carlie across the years. Come find me.
Danger, like the shadowed pools of the forest, can run deep. The danger is real, but Carlie’s magic is born of a pure spirit. With the help of Gus, and Gran, and a rugged cop who really does want to save the world, she’ll fight to bring a ghost home, and deliver justice to a murderer who hides in the cool, mysterious green of a forest gone mad with magic.
What I liked: I have to say that I liked this story! Carlie was a good witch and her regular job as a cook in the local diner made her believable. Her cat acted like a typical cat with all the quirks associated with the animal - despite being her familiar. I liked the occasional interaction with her grandmother and her amazing magic.Read more ›
