Thanks Bloomsbury Spark.
The title got my attention. Yes I have a weakness for certain types of books and the W word does get my attention. I can't wait to read more books from Valerie since this is her debut. Good job and I look forward to reading the next one. The cover is absolutely perfect for this book.
If only I had a Tardis that would allow me to travel to the future to read books by authors I adore. I get the feeling Valerie has just been added to that list that seems to grow and grow. It isn't my fault that there are so many great authors out there writing books I simply must read. Isn't that what book sluts do?
This book is like a blend between Buffy and Supernatural. It is an interesting take on witches. The witches in Hollywood are cursed which forces them to kill women. They go after the shallow mean girl types who I'm sure many of us have had encounters with that if given the chance we'd love to slap the crap out of because of the way they act. Or is that just me? Hunters are the ones that kill the witches. They are usually men until Iris comes along with the gene. The men in her family are also Hunters. There is quite a twist at the end that I did not see coming that made my mouth drop open because I didn't expect it.
Iris starts training a recruit named Arlo. I adore Arlo. He's such a great character and he's funny. I really like Iris too. She's a kick ass girl who also happens to be from Colombia. I find that to be a refreshing change of pace since it seems like all too often the person is a white blonde that is the main character. It is nice to see a little color and it is fitting for Hollywood since Spanish is spoken by so many people there. Iris soon finds out that things aren't quite so black and white as she discovers some sinister plans that are set in motion. I was left wanting more and if my battery hadn't run out last night I would have kept reading until I finished. I assume this is a series at least I hope so because I want more.
