Georgina Bruce’s writing is so beautiful. Her descriptions are creative and haunting, and I would kill to read a book of poetry written by her.

Tracy’s Review Teaser

Bruce definitely has the ability to paint a literary picture. I actually read this with a couple of friends, Emily and Audra, and one of the things that we all agreed on was that Bruce would definitely shine at poetry and/or flash fiction.

Spell on Wheels by Kate Leth, Megan Levens (Illustrator), Marissa Louise (Colorist), Jen Bartel (Cover Artist), Nate Piekos (Letterer)

A road trip story. A magical revenge fantasy. A sisters-over-misters tale of three witches out to get back what was taken fom them.

Andy, Jolene, and Claire aren’t your average twenty-somethings. They’re legacy witches making their way through a modern world. When a jealous nonmagical ex breaks into their home and steals a spell that could awaken potentials with magical powers, the witches plan their revenge. Traveling down the East Coast, they must retrieve their powerful stolen artifacts and strengthen their friendship… the big bad is even worse than they imagined.

Spell on Wheels is a quick & fun graphic novel. I liked the characters and the story, and I would definitely read more if the series continues.

Second Lives by P.D. Cacek

When four patients unexpectedly wake after being declared dead, their families are ecstatic and the word “miracle” begins to be whispered throughout the hospital. But the jubilation is short lived when the patients don’t respond to their names and insist they are different people. It is suggested all four are suffering from fugue states until one of the doctors recognizes a name and verifies that he not only knew the girl but was there when she died in 1992. It soon becomes obvious that the bodies of the four patients are now inhabited by the souls of people long dead.
