Broom with a Viewby Gayla Twist, Ted Naifeh
The threat of war between Witches and Vampires means England may no longer be safe for a young Witch. Hence, Miss Violet Popplewell is sent abroad under the watchful eye of her great-aunt Vera. Without so much as a bon voyage party, Violet finds herself a visitor to the city-state of X, a mysterious place where magic is used openly and Witches and Vampires live together in harmony. Or at least, they try to get along. Violet's aunt is shocked to discover that there are Vampires staying at their pensione and alarmed to note that one of the undead is a rather handsome young man.
An outburst of hostilities in X thrusts Violet into the young Vampire's arms. And, much to her dismay, she realizes she may have accidentally bewitched him with a love charm. Are the emotions that the Vampire feels true passion or just a slip of the wand?

I was contacted on behalf of the author to write an honest review of this book. Immediately the description made it sound like something I would definitely be interested in. It took a while for me to get through it, but that's simply because I am getting used to taking care of two kids. I think the story was pretty good. It was a little slow to get to the action and there was one character, Vera, that drove me crazy, but I think she was supposed to drive the reader crazy. The character development was pretty good. I felt like Sebastian, the vampire, evolved rather quickly and without a lot of explanation. Violet was wonderfully written though. So what's the story about? In this world vampires and witches are known to exist and even have their own special city called X. However, the two races are on the brink of war and no one really knows why. Violet is being shipped off to X with her aunt Vera for her own protection. The problem is that the war his X first and Violet ends up in the middle of it. She ends up being drug all over the place because her aunt must do everything in the most polite and socially proper manner. Violet is stuck following Vera's crazy rules of propriety, but it really was in her best interest. She ends up learning the hard way what happens when she doesn't listen to her aunt when she ends up engaged to smortal whom she really doesn't love. Unfortunately the engagement is a binding contract via magic. Violet is bound to do everything her fiance asks her to do which means her magic ends up being used for trivial things to satisfy her mother-in-law's whims. Everything is going according to the mortal's plans until Violet truly falls in love...with a vampire. Read more reviews at Identity Discovery blog.
