A Demon Stole my Kitty
Werewolves, Vampires and Demons, Oh My #3
(15 April 2018)
I’m a witch. Not a good one or a bad one, although according to the snooty wizards, I’m a stain upon their robes.
But who cares what those snobs say?
So what do you do if your newly rescued kitten gets out and doesn’t come home? Especially if there is a good chance its body has been taken over by a demon? Why tickle it under the chin and hug it of course!
Yes its demons versus witches – and sorcerers – and all sorcerers are male misogynists – or are they?
A feisty witch (human and not having magic blood – or so the sorcerers claim) sets out to show the males just how demons should be fought. And how you can love some, and they will be faithful to you. See kitty!
Great fun story. Lots of humour and snark. And yes, the males get shown up by the females!
The Goddess Chronicles
paranormal, mythology, romance
A new day. A new boss. A new job that may not be all it's cracked up to be.
Hades has given Abby what appears to be an easy task. Wrangle his errant wife Persephone back to the Underworld. No problem, right?
When Abby finally finds her, things don't go well. Persephone isn't happy to see her, nor is she willing to even entertain the possibility of going back to the Underworld. She's found a mortal and is determined to get him down the aisle. Considering Persephone is already married to Hades, there's something not quite right upstairs with her.
As wedding bells grow closer for Persephone and her unsuspecting mortal groom, Abby begins to wonder what Hades sees in this wretch of a girl and why she's even bothering to try to bring her back home.
But as with most things involving Olympus, things are not always as they seem. Much to Abby's chagrin, it's not just Olympus getting involved this time. Join Abby and her friends for the wedding of the century, complete with bad bridesmaid dresses, paranormal drama, and cake testing. By the end of it, someone is either going to be married...or dead.
Book 1 in this series – new to me – didn’t quite convince me, but it was light and breezy and all about gods and Olympus and I wasn’t going to quibble. The interesting thing I’ve found with series is that either improve as the author gets to know her trade and her characters better, or disintegrate as the author had one brilliant idea bt didn’t know how to follow it up.
This was the former. The books got better. And ended up a 4.5….
Book 2 improved in style and tension and left you with a cliff-hanger and unresolved situation, so you needed to sort it in book 3. As I read book 3 I journeyed through jealousy, magic, prophecies and epic quarrels and unrequited love. Nothing too small happens in these books. They are always epic happenings with un expected results! No real plan but Abby bumbles through and comes out ahead – just.
I do suspect that the author has been watching the TV programme Lucifer as her description fit him to a tee – apart from the singing and piano playing. Although one should suspect the good voice from the actor as he comes from Wales – a total Black Welsh.
And then we have the mystery of the daemon and is there a Heaven and a Christian God and if so, what about all the other mythic deities and their heavens. Can of Worms.. and a serious case of Google to find out just who these creatures are.
Well done SE Babin. You totally hooked me and you have done lots of research too on myths.
The Federal witch
The Federal Witch bks 0-7
fantasy, paranormal, romance, humour, crime
Imagine a world where Witches, Weres, and Vampires work among us. The Paranormals came out to the world during World War one. History as we know it took a left turn as world events changed. World war two never happened as we remember it. The Empire of Japan still exists. As does the British Empire. America is finding itself overwhelmed by magic. Particularly the FBI.
Agatha Blackmore is a Witch and she has all but been drafted by the FBI to help. Demons, Dragons, Weres, and Fae are her opponents. What can one small Witch and her pet Unicorn do against the world?
Read the Prequel and books 1 & 2 to find out!
Born a Witch ... Drafted by the FBI!
I read all the way through the Federal witch stories, and even started on the Universe stories without a breather. They were fun! and such a blast to read.
There are 8 stories in the main series:
0. Born a Witch: Drafted by the FBI
Special Agent in Charge
Night of the Unicorn
Blood on the Moon
This is paranormal fantasy with every possible species you can think of. Each book tells you a little more backstory and also about each character – do read number 5!
We have the FBI as the central organisation but then there are gateways/portals into various multiverses and pocket worlds such as Tir Nan Og – hence the Unicorns (yeah) who actually are nasty fighters witht horn and battle dragons with Arthur and his Round Table Nights – but don’t ask about Merlin…
And there is politics. Scheming that makes Machiavelli look simplistic. Playing the long gang as many species – such as Vampires – live for a very long time and manipulate from behind the ‘scene’.
So the Federal witch is Agatha and these stories are based on her adventures with her friends – of various species but especially Cat, Chuck and her micro-unicorn Fergus and the FBI cases they get involved in.
During the time period of the stories, which start when she joins and end (at present) Agatha graduates and becomes a Special Agent in Charge of her own unit. she goes from being a rather naive teenager to a seasoned agent, despite the interference of various gods and Goddesses.
Oh and please could she share the clothes cleaning spell? and is there one for keeping hair under control too? (See Abby from the Aphrodite series – she has one, and a self-cleaning one too) Would make life so much easier and cheaper too.
There are 2 books known to be in the list to come:
The Tiger's Offer: A Reverse Harem Fantasy
(The Goddess's Harem Book 1)
Lila Jean, J.A. Cipriano
paranormal, mythology, romance, dark fantasy
When Tina stumbled into that werewolf strip club, she never expected to walk out with the powers of a fertility goddess, but now that she has, well… she made a list.
Step 1: Get a handle on her unruly new magic.
Step 2: Convince the five shifter princes fighting over her that sharing is caring.
Step 3: Experience sex the way only a fertility goddess can
There’s just one more thing.
Step 4: Try not to die when bitchy priestesses come out of the woodwork to take her new magic for themselves.
I tried this book as I had enjoyed another book co-authored by JA Cipriano. But found that this story lacked humour, storyline/plot – which was very obvious – and basic writing skills. I found the s-x scenes repetitive and dull. It only got 2 as I kept reading hoping it would get better due to previous experience with one author.
