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.
Some of the concepts in this novella were quite new and intriguing. I rather like the idea of a witch converting sugar into magic. It certainly explains where all the raw energy could come from instead of some mysterious force in the universe. An angel as the antihero but not the villain was a great twist as well. Nate wasn't evil per-say but he wasn't someone I would invite for dinner. That he was scary powerful was a given and Nilla kept reminding the reader throughout the book.
There were a few writing issues that could mostly be overlooked; just a sentence or two that had to be re-read to understand what the author was trying to say. I really enjoyed the novella for the most part. It was the ending that killed me and pulled down the rating; it felt very anti-climatic. The author spent alot of time building up the heroine the angel and the villain. He set clear expectations of what they could and could not do. He also made sure you were sufficiently scared of his villain. Nilla and her friends go into the last "battle" ready to die and nothing happens. There is no fight, no argument, and no real magic on Nilla's part. (Spoiler Alert) She laid a trap and it worked. Nate came and took care of everything the end. Granted it was a neat and tidy ending and probably the most logical way for it to end but readers don't like neat and tidy. At least I don't like neat and tidy. Its probably too many years reading epic fantasy. Who knows?
It won't keep me from reading another Witchlight Novella but another ending like that would. For the most part its a good quick read with some interesting ideas. A side story on Nate might be an interesting read as well Jaime.
