And will the secret guardians of the paranormal world ensnare Jo in their web?
Joe Wiley is the kind of heroine I like to call a cerebral badass. She's tough and thoughtful by turns, and I enjoyed spending time in her world inhabited by ghosts, friends with benefits, and a side of hot tea. Can't wait for more!
This first book of I HOPE an healthy ongoing series, introduces all of the fun main characters, living and working together as Jolene discovers some secrets about herself and her family.
I enjoyed this new female lead paranormal, as it delved into Slovenian culture, new gods, and a twisty adventure, which kept me reading until the very end.
Read this one, it is worth it. Personally I am looking forward to seeing how Jolene learns to deal with her new life and powers, and see what other gods and 'creatures' turn up!
Jolene Wiley is a forty-something ex-pat Tennessean who owns a restaurant in a small Eastern European capital. She’s independent and tough, with a good life, a son, friends, and enough lovers to keep her nights busy. Her life seems set until a murder victim comes to call and her life is forever changed.
Raschke has created a vivid world in which people are separated from the dead, the demonic, and the mythological by a porous membrane, indeed. The novel is well-written in a modern, energetic, and mature voice. The author uses her obvious love of Slovenia, its people and their language to bring her setting to life. Her dialog is fun, thoughtful, and absolutely rings true. I did some head-scratching as I tried to keep track of all the characters—many of whom had unfamiliar names--but I finally decided to ignore most of them and concentrate on Jolene and the other main actors. I’m looking forward to reading the next installment in this series.
I enjoyed this book a lot more than I expected to, and as soon as I'm done writing this review, I'm heading over to pick up the sequel. The crucial selling point, for me, was that I felt like I could follow the mystery. I didn't know what was going on from page one, by any means, but by a little before halfway through, enough of the 'rules' had been explained that I had a pretty good idea of where the rest of the story would go. There was one death I anticipated that, thankfully, didn't happen--though a different one did. I felt like it was an admirably-maintained balance between keeping back enough secrets to preserve the mystery, and giving the reader enough to work with. I was intrigued without being overwhelmed, in other words.
I personally enjoyed it a lot, and I hope to see many more books from the same author!
Great series starter, though the mystery was much of a mystery. I liked the characters, the country, and the lead-in to future tales with even more interesting creatures and people.
