I found this book by accident a while back and decided to give it a try. I bought the ebook and dug right into it. I have to say that I really enjoyed this debut for the Persephone Alcmedi series.
Seph is a which and in her world, witches and werewolves don't really get along. However, she is sort of friends with a few of them and even provide shelter to them during the full moon, when they can get really dangerous and lose control. She believes in the werewolves cause and even defend it on her newspaper column.
Persephone's life turns upside down when her grandma is kicked out of her nursing home and has to move in with her. Right after that, her werewolf friend is murdered and she is asked by the Coven that rules the witches to destroy the alleged killer, who is none other than a very powerful vampire named Goliath Kline.
To be quite honest, this novel doesn't really bring anything new to the Urban Fantasy table. However, Seph is such a lovable character and the secondary characters are so interesting, that you can't help but get into their world and want more. The plot was very compelling and kept me on the edge of my seat, the twists and turn were very well done IMH. Linda's writing is very good and it has definitely found a place in my heart.
I found Persephone to be a great heroin and really interesting to follow. The potential in her relationship with the werewolf Johnny is great and besides, he is really HOT. hehe =) I am really looking forward to Hallowed Circle, Book 2 in the series =)))
I give this book 4/5 Loveys =)))

*I'm sorry for the quick review, but I read this book a few months ago. The new book is coming out and I didn't want to have the review of Book 2 without the Review for Book 1.
