Nilla the kick butt witch finds out that their was a break up worse than her own. The woman she's trying to help - her ex not only wanted her dead, he wanted all her soul energy.
Ok, so I've dated guys like that.
As usual, author Jaime Munn makes it fun and ok to laugh - even when the situation in the book is scary as all get out.
I love reading all the fun Nilla stories from Jaime Munn!
I confess to devouring all the novelettes, short stories, arcs, freebies and deals I can find.
Honestly review whatever I can get my hands on them - because the only thing missing is more!
So hop aboard the Nilla and Friends witchly train!
Witches, and weres, and Soul Sucking men - its not a bad reunion - its a lot of reading fun!
A witch converting sugar into magic was an interesting concept put forth in the book, as was the role of an angel as not-quite a villain, both of which I found fascinating. The book is a short one that can be read in one sitting (or quickly, if not in one sitting). The author has done a pretty good job of bringing to life both well-developed and described characters and settings. I recommend this for anyone who enjoys a different sort of book about witches or the supernatural, or for anyone who is looking for something a bit different, with some interesting, unusual ideas. I received this from Library Thing to read and review.
In "Lustre" we meet Nilla, a witch, that's just broken up with her werewolf ex and is feeling pretty down trodden. One of her jobs is providing witchery services to other paranormal beings and, in this case, she's given a mysterious assignment from an angel. That assignment leads her to the small town of "Whisper Falls" and the characters that lie within.
Genre-wise the story is part paranormal fantasy, part mystery, and more or less the beginning of a heroes journey. Though Nilla is lesbian this is in no way a romance. There's not even a romantic love interest but we do get to see a budding friendship take off. It's also a series where the lead has ethnic diversity which I appreciate.
I mentioned in my review of "Bump" that though this book is written by a male (and a white male at that), in no way can I tell. He clearly loves his characters and THAT I can definitely tell.
What do I love about the series? It's completely original, the characters are excellent, and the plot lines are unpredictable. Each story I've read in this series has been clever and light, despite any sinister elements, and Nilla is just a fantastic and lovable narrator. The writing is vivid so I always feel I'm actually stepping into the locations the author sets and I can feel and see Nilla's perspective in a tactile way.
If you want to read the series, the books/stories go in this order:
