This story’s plot line was so different from any other fantasy/paranormal/humor book that I’ve read. There were witches. There was a guild. There was a bad guy and a deadline. But everything in between these elements was surprisingly different.
The writing style of switching POV and not tagging all the dialogue made it a bit confusing to figure out who was speaking at times.
I loved seeing Abbey from other characters’ perspectives and to see the world through her eyes.
This was a fun and interesting read.

I read The Guild or Immortal Women a year (or so) ago. I really enjoyed it. I too was pleasantly surprised at the unique perspective.
Have you read any of his other books? I see the author at events now and then and now I can finally tell him I read one of his books 🙂
