Without the demonic entity Buer, Alyce Kerr would not be a Faith Healer. Though she once conjured him, Alyce wants to be free of Buer. Binge-drinking seems to help, but ex Ross Garcia helps even more.

The concept is fabulous, and the plotting intriguing, but I couldn’t connect with any of the characters. Alyce conjured Buer for immature reasons, and wasn’t willing to accept the consequences. And I don’t respect binge-drinkers. Oh, and then there’s the slight issue that Ross tried to kill her three years ago! That’s not a spoiler – it’s right there in the publisher’s summary. So I couldn’t take Ross seriously as a love interest, though Alyce certainly did. Diff’rent strokes…

Still, I need closure, so I’ll definitely be tuning in for Careless and Boundless, the next instalments in this trilogy.

September 2009 Releases

Done buying August 2009 Releases? Now time for September 2009 Releases. As always, I got my info from Amazon, publishers’ websites and authors’ websites, so if I’m wrong…blame them, not me 😉 If you know of more September releases that aren’t here, it’s either because I don’t know of their existence, or I’m not interested. I play favourites, and there’s no shame in that 😉
