When teen witch Ivy MacTavish changes a lizard into her date for a Halloween dance, everything turns to chaos. And when no one is powerful enough to transform him back except Ivy, it sparks the rumor: Like father, like daughter. Ivy has heard it all before - that her father, who left when she was seven – was involved with the darkest of magic.
the rumors worse, someone uses an evil spell book to bring back two of
history's most nefarious killers. Ivy's got a simple plan to set things
right: find the real dark spell caster, steal the book, and reverse the
spell. No problem! But she’ll have to deal with something
more dangerous than murderous spirits that want her and her friends
dead: the school’s resident bad boy and hotter-than-brimstone
demon, Nick Marcelli. Nick’s offering Ivy more than his help
with recovering the missing book – he’s offering
her a way to ditch her scaly reputation as a lizard-lover. Demons are
about as hard to handle as black magic, and as Ivy soon discovers,
it’s going to take more than a lot of luck and a little charm
if she wants to survive long enough to clear her status as a dark
witch, get a warm-blooded boyfriend, and have her former date back to
eating meal worms before the week’s end.
The Book of Lost Souls by Michelle Muto
ebook, 245 pages
Published March 7th, 2011
There are times i'm just getting really mad with the publishers. There are some books out there, that really deserved to get published and be famous instead of some others that seriously need to "disappear"(all books are good, i just don't agree with the popularity that some of them have). Book of Lost Souls, is one of those books. I can't even describe how much i enjoyed it. It was one of those books, that make you wanna read them again and again because they are fun,light and make you feel nice later. Unfortunately, since is an e-book i highly doubt i read it again since i find it a bit tiring to read at the reader.
The author gets you in from the very first chapter, with a really amusing "accident" and the first glimpse of some really great characters. It's easy reading, with the appropriate descriptions, action and between scenes and some real time responses from the characters. The story might be something extremely new (white witch finds dangerous book, tries to save people, a love triangle,etc) but it's enjoyable. You could see right throw the story but still i didn't want it to end.
The characters are some of my fav ones ever. Firstly, i really like the whole demon-vampire-werewolf-witch are friends and not mortal enemies. They are all one and live together (hidden from the mere humans though). Our main heroine, Ivy is a really simple girl. Likes to have fun, doing stupid things, falling in love as a teenager (not "i can't live without you my eternal love"stuff) but when its needed she can take some difficult decisions. Nick is a bad boy in the way "i've done some mistakes but i can be better" and he tries really hard to prove what he really is and that we can't act towards people according to some ideas others or actions have. And lastly, there is the clique of Ivy's friend. Each of them, different but all connected by their friendship, with no backstabbing and etc.
The book is available at Amazon for Kindle, Smashwords and B&N. So if you can, then buy it. You will like it :D
