Loving this series. The only thing that keeps me from giving it 5 stars is that I wish Jade wasn't such a "dumb blond". It would be nice if the author didn't focus on that as much.
I have now read all three books currently extant in this series. I have not enjoyed a plot-related group of books this much in a very long time. The concept is delightfully weird and the execution is direct and professional.
The characters take precedence over the crazy and entertaining paranormal story, each one drawn in an elaborately three-dimensional manner, and the action and comedy serve only to heighten your love (or hate) of each "person." There are witches and dowers and shape-shifters and sorcerers and demons. And there are cupcakes. Lots and lots of cupcakes. I believe I actually gained three pounds reading the first book.
Others have listed plot points in their reviews, but I think it's better to discover them while reading, so I will say nothing. What I WILL say, though, is that a reader needs to carve out time for these books, for once begun, each one is Very Difficult to Put Down until it has been finished.
Without any spoilers, I did find the focus on sweets and chocolate a bit excessive - especially as I'm not really a sweet tooth - compared to book 1, almost to the point that it trivialised the huge events happening in the story. I understand the use of humour to break the stress and tension but in places it was almost as if two people were writing the story and one was a pastry chef not a writer.
I'd recommend people to buy it to finish the story but can't say it'd a re-read.
This series made me a fan of Meghan C. Doidge. The series is set in the current day. Witches, Sorcerers, Shapeshifters, and Vampires inhabit this hidden-in-plain-sight magic system. The pace of the story is fast. The female protagonist is kickass, beautiful and flawed, mostly too humble, surely too nice for her own good. Even the supporting cast characters in this series are rich and lifelike. Read or listen as the audible reader is good.
