Hello Bloglandia!

As some of you might know, The Uncanny Raven Winston (aka “Book Two of the Cassie Black Trilogy”) took flight last week.

And a couple of your fellow residents of Bloglandia were wonderful enough to share the book on their blogs. I’ll get to the second one on Thursday, but today I’m sharing the review posted over on the Blog Formerly Known as Jaunts & Haunts. Which makes it sound like an artistically cool musician.

But in fact, it’s the blog of fellow writer Jonathon Pongratz who is going through a HUGE rebranding thingie to celebrate his own recent launch of Reaper: Aftermath.

Now, because WordPress is being an absolute wanker about letting me simply hit re-post, I’m going old school to share Jonny’s review with you by stealing a screen shot, a few teaser paragraphs, and a link so you can keep reading.

If you want to know more about the book, as well as where you can find it, just keep on scrolling.

Thanks to Jonny for the stellar review! I’ll be back tomorrow with a special announcement, and on Thursday, I’ll share that other review. Cheers, everyone!!

Let’s Stay in Touch!

Repost — Book Review: The Uncanny Raven Winston

I gave this book four fantastic stars!

Cassie’s had quite a bit of bad luck since the dead started coming back to life, and after failing to defeat the Mauvais things are more dangerous than ever. She knows he is out there plotting something terrible. So when the HQ of magic summons her to protect all the magic within her, she hops on the chance to find out more about her parents and how to control her wild magic. Can Cassie pull this off, or is she destined for failure?

This was such a fun book! All the great stuff that was in the first one was here, and it was very enjoyable.

First and foremost it was quirky fun with a capital q, and I mean that in the best way!…

About the Book

There’s nothing like an evil wizard to ruin a perfect good trip to London.

Ever have one of those weeks? You’ve taken an overdose of magic, you’ve just melted a twelve-year old girl, and Magic HQ has sent a letter “requesting” you come by to discuss your magic control issues.

No? Just me then?

I don’t want to go. I’ve got a boss in a wheelchair (my fault), a zombie cat who demands his treats on schedule, and no interest in sorting out the quirks of another magical community.

But when someone slips me information tying my parents’ disappearance to HQ, I can’t pack my bags quickly enough.

I’m soon destroying historical displays, befriending befuddled ghosts, and focusing more on uncovering the truth about my past than on figuring out how to rein in my magic. Which, since HQ has a test for me that if I fail… Well, best not to think about that.

This second book of The Cassie Black Trilogy squeezes you through a magic portal, lodges you in a hidden corner of the Tower of London, and plunges you into a tale of mysterious mishaps, peculiar ravens, and TV-binging trolls.

If you like contemporary fantasy with unforgettable characters, snarky humor, and a touch of paranormal mystery — or if you’ve ever wondered what those garden gnomes are really up to — you’ll find it hard to pry yourself away from The Uncanny Raven Winston.
