    Third time is the charm

    Evil Ways is the second book in the Quincy Morris and Libby Chastain Supernatural Investigations. It starts with a heist at the Baghdad National Museum, the famed Book of Shadows is taken. In LA Quincy is hired to help with some ritualistic child murders on top of that white witches are being targeted and assassinated.This is an urban fantasy set in Harry Dresden's world inhabited with white witches black witches demons etc. the first in the series is "Black Magic Woman", I devoured that and then this one in a day and a half. It's a good read and Justin Gustainis is certainly a fresh voice in this field.

    Definitely Recommended - give it a read!

    I had never heard of this author, but came across one of his other novels on sale, and being into "urban fantasy" novels, decided to give it a chance. It was well worth it, and I'm now currently devouring the rest of his books. Check it out; if you like this genre, you'll be glad you did!

    P.S. One of my new favorite authors, right up there with Jim Butcher.

    why would an author have his/her characters stop into another author's world?

    I liked the book but I had a serious problem with the lead characters visiting the world of Harry Dresden. The magic the lead witch uses is exactly the sort of thing Dresden would have to kill. She uses magic to influence the will of people, messing with their heads. In the future, please keep the world's separate and send a fan letter to Jim Butcher instead.

    Exciting paranormal fantasy

    Gustainis is carving out a niche in a genre dominated by women (don't get me wrong, I LOVE that women dominate!). Evil Ways is an exciting read. His characters, both male and female are fully developed. I highly recommend this series and I'm anxiously awaiting the third!

    exciting urban fantasy

    In Baghdad on the eve of the American invasion, five mercenaries use the unrest to break and enter the Iraqi National Musuem. They climb down three flights of stairs and open up a tamper-proof safe. They steal the Book of Shadows that was locked inside. The team leader Miles Hawkins takes it to black magic practitioner Pardee in the States on beealf of his dying client multi-billionaire Walter Grobius, who hopes the tome contains a spell to save his life.<BR/><BR/>Supernatural investigator Quincey Morris completes a mission in which he sees the preserved hearts of eight murdered children, Two FBI agents Dale Fenton and Colleen O¿Brien inform him that children across the country are being killed. Quincey¿s partner white witch Libby Chastain is also almost killed while taking a shower; eight white witches have been slaughtered and three more have vanished. The FBI investigates the murders using physical clues; while Quincey and Libby apply their paranormal skills to seek the same information of identfying the culprit. Meanwhile Libby¿s life remains in danger from a person who never forgot she defeated him in a contest of magic. All roads lead to Iowa where Pardee and Grobius are approaching a critical moment on Walpurgis¿s Night of the full moon. The Sisterhood uses their magic to try and avert a catastrophe while Quincey wants to do likewise but also save Libby from being a sacrifice and the Feds try to keep the summoning from happening.<BR/>---<BR/>EVIL WAYS, a worthy successor to BLACK MAGIC WOMAN, focuses throughout on the supernatural in the mundane realm with a myriad of subplots that tie together in a terrific battle between good and evil. The key to this exciting urban fantasy is both sides of the conflict contain fully developed key characters. Quincey and Libby are a dynamic team who bring plausibly to the plot even though they can move mountains when working in unison; in this case they may have to move the Great Plains with what Pardee and Grobius plan. Justin Gustainis makes his world seem real as the Field of Dreams turns into a nightmare.<BR/>---<BR/>Harriet Klausner
