The main characters, cast with courage and angst in equal measure, Emily, Lori, Ophelia and Rosalind, are planted firmly on the good side of the fight of Warriors of the Light, and are determinedly set on a mission to protect the world from the evils of the Devil and all his creepy, hideous minions. There's no mistaking the conflict and the clashes between the pursuers of good and the purveyors of all that threatens the followers of the Light. Inserted along the way, supporting figures, imbued with almost the same level of importance to the cause, appear in the form of Rain, Patrick, and Brenner. The interplay with these three is particularly well-crafted and brings a seasoning of lightness and humour to offset the serious engagements needed to thwart the powers of evil.
The last time I encountered such a wondrous journey into and around the spirit world was over twenty years ago when I read Ben Okri's The Famished Road. The balance between the spirit world and the present day is delicately spun in No Harm To Charm, making it an entrancing read, no less magical than the events leaping across the pages. This is a thoroughly enjoyable saga, and thankfully is only the beginning of a series, giving me something splendid to anticipate for my next read.
Guided by the certain navigation of O.G. Tomes' pen the reader is led into a world of magic so intricate and convincing you find yourself within it, feeling it, seeing it. Her forces of darkness are dark indeed, her spirit of light and hope is dazzling. I learned to love her heroes - Emily and Lori, Rosalind and Angel, but I spuriously enjoyed her demons, too. Anyone who claims they have not met Mentula at a party somewhere is disingenuous in the extreme. The blundering Patrick willl charm, the miniscule Rain will disarm. No matter where you come from, her characters live on the page for you.
But more, much more than all of that, O.G. Tomes stirs the fears in the underbelly of a nation. This book is nothing less than a trump for battle, a passionate and desperate plea from the heart.
