Review: No Rest For Wicca by Toni LoTempio

Communing with the dead is an everyday occurrence for PI Morgan Hawkes. A half-Wiccan witch who can commune with spirits of those caught between worlds, Morgan uses her talents to exorcise the trapped ghost or demon as part of the Paranormal Investigation Squad – until a string of murders with a voodoo slant prompts the Special Forces Agency to ask for her assistance. Someone’s killing pureblood witches- and the SFA’s convinced Morgan’s heritage (her father was a voodoo priest) could be instrumental in solving the mystery. Teamed with dashing SF agent Cole St. John – an Inheritor Vampire that sets her blood racing – the two of them fight their attraction for each other as they race to stop a madman from unleashing a demonic force upon the world

These few months, I read some indie books and No Rest of Wicca is definitely one of my favorites. I was hooked from the beginning. I enjoyed every chapter, from the plot till its characters. The ending was also nice. I never expect that I would find such closing.

Before reading this book, I knew nothing about Voodoo or Wicca. Fortunately, the author wrote anything related to it in simple way. So I did not find myself lost when he told me about the chant, the spell, even the rituals, No need to open any articles that related to those things.

I loved both of Morgan and Cole. Besides the magical abilities, they also got strong personality. I liked their sense of humor. All the conversations between them were hilarious. I caught myself smiling every time Morgan got annoyed with Cole’s words and cynicism. It was nice to know when the relation between them grew up.

However I am not a reader who judge the book by its cover, I think a good book should comes up with great cover.
