£6.19 per Witching Hour by Joanna Mazurkiewicz – Review


£6.19 per Witching Hour (Paranormal Personnel Saga #1)Blurb:

Julia Taylor works as a recruitment consultant for Paranormal Personnel in London. Her normal day at the office consists of seeing clients, searching for new vacancies, updating CVs and visiting employers.

It seems as though she has an ordinary life but in reality Julia is half elf and she works for a recruitment agency for paranormals.

She is normally calm, confident and is not afraid to stand up for herself, but when the meeting with La Caz Corporation doesn’t go as well as she hoped, she wants to bury herself under the ground and die.

Nathaniel La Caz is a player and he wants to seduce Julia. The incredible sexual chemistry that builds up between them complicates her life to the point where she can’t control her magic. La Caz not only wants her but he also has a craving for her blood. Then her ex-boyfriend Jasper comes back on the scene and nearly exposes the whole paranormal world to humans when trying to protect her.

It doesn’t end well when vampires and elves mix. The problems start escalating when Julia witnesses the kidnapping of her cousin Claudia on the busy street. From then on things only go from bad to worst. More elves and fairies begin to vanish in London without trace and the police suspect vampires. Julia is determined to find Claudia even if it means she will get herself into more trouble.

My Review:

It’s hard to know where to begin with this book. The characters are okay, the situations seem real enough (for a fantasy), but there’s something missing from the book. I don’t know if it was just my glutton or Para/Rom lately, but there just didn’t seem to be the real spark between Julia and Nathaniel.

Personally, I think that relationship took backseat to the kidnappings. That had me stumped, i really didn’t expect the twist at the end, but there you go. Never trust anyone. you get a real sense of fear and suspense from the characters, what with all the kidnappings across London. That was very well done.

All in all, a good romp (just ignore the romance, and you’ll be fine).

3/5
