I love the mix of paranormals that Jodi has created. The concept of witches and familiars isn’t a new one, but the connection that Jodi’s witches have with their shape shifting familiars is a unique spin. It also leaves the door wide open for territorial, alpha male possessiveness that the author takes full advantage of ~ in very creative ways. (Let’s just say it will be a long time before I drink champagne without certain images coming to mind.) ;)
This book was about two very strong willed, fiercely loyal individuals. We found out at the end of That Voodoo You Do that Logan wanted Clarissa. In The Seven Year Witch we find out exactly how much he wants her and how deep his love goes. I fell in love with Logan’s snarkiness in the first book. He was sarcastic, funny and my original description of him being ‘a mess’ still stands. He was the personification of bad boy. Not at all the character that I expected to be capable of breaking my heart. Well, brace yourself. The pain that both of these characters go through is heart wrenching. Clarissa is in a no win situation and does the only thing she feels she can do to save a loved one. Logan refuses to give up even when he’s pushed away. *sigh*
There’s still a lot of light-hearted banter between the characters. Not to mention the steaminess that you would expect in That Old Black Magic series. There’s a lot of action and the ‘bad guy’ in this one is beyond evil, so basically, there is something for everyone. Well, probably not everyone, but if you read That VooDoo You Do and want to know if the sequel measures up? No worries. Jodi delivers just as much in The Seven Year Witch as she did in the opening book. There is also some nice set-up to the next book in the series, Maximum Witch. I can’t wait to see what Jodi has in store for us next. ;)
Clarissa was... well, I won't say that I disliked her when she was introduced in book 1 but she was a hard character to actually like until you got to see what caused her to don the ice queen mask. She was just so broken by what was coming for her. She fought against it, but she always had the idea in the back of her head that it was inevitable. The way she tried so hard to protect those around her (her coven sisters, Logan, her father) while she was watching the clock tick down on her time made her wonderfully sympathetic. Throwing in the towel and having a torrid affair with Logan simply because she could no longer deny the way he made her feel was sexy.
And Logan. Wow. He was hot and perpetually horny. I loved that he was so unrepentantly arrogant and male. I loved his musing about how Clarissa would bring more to any relationship than he would so he'd just have to become a champion diaper changer to make up for his lack. How can you not love a guy who sees his faults in such a clear light? Sure, at the end of the day he was still an arrogant, Alpha werewolf with a penchant for innuendo and taking his clothes off at the drop of a hat, but he was so damn consistent about it that I couldn't help but fall for the guy.
As for the bad guy... well, I loved to hate him. More to the point, I loved what he was and how he was portrayed. In fact, I pretty much thought all the secondary characters were fabulous.
If you're not reading this series and you like witches, werewolves, demons, and/or various other supernatural entities, you're missing out. I loved this book from beginning to end and I'm waiting breathlessly for book 3.
