Book One of The Witching Pen series.

It's hard being the most powerful witch on the planet. It's even harder when you're a twenty-five year old virgin who'll lose all of that power the moment you sleep with someone ... that's why Elena's never slept with her best friend and flatmate, Karl, despite the true feelings they harbour for each other.

Elena's about to discover that there are even more difficult things in life to deal with. One of them comes in the form of a pen she discovers one day, a pen that allows anything she writes to come to pass...

Suddenly, it's not just her powers or her heart that's at stake, but her very soul, as a dream demon with a seductive pull uses the pen to try and turn her away from her reality, and from Karl.

But the pen is just the beginning. Everything Elena has believed in is a lie, and her world is about to fall apart...

(May contain a few spoilers) BRIEF SUMMARY Elena is a thirteenth generation witch. At a young age, her mother told her being a witch comes with responsibilities; she will not be able to have a normal relationship or sex. She comes into possession of a pen, the witching pen that allows her to write anything that comes true. With the pen comes a dark demon, Nathaniel. Nathaniel haunts Elena's dreams and watches her from the dark until he makes his true intentions known. With the help of friends and family, Elena will uncover secrets as well as a way to prevent a demon portal from happening. THOUGHTS The product preview for this book is good but I don't think it does this book justice. I thought the story would be a certain way from reading the preview but it turned out to be a great start to a good series. The book had a certain simplicity to it in the beginning but later on as the story progress the characters and plot spoke volumes. The characters were all interesting for me. Katherine, Elena's mother seemed a bit cold but has a few secrets of her own. Amy and Mary are very important characters, as I believe their stories will be next. Pueblo seems to be a possessive and sexy demon and I think his story with Amy will be interesting. Karl is Elena's best friend. I have to admit I was not sure what to think of Karl but scene after scene he became sexier. After Karl's ordeal with Elena before and after, previous scenes started to make sense and came together. His role within the story was truly an unexpected surprise and added some excitement for me. Gwain was an interesting character as well; I just wanted to point that out. Saying what his role is will probably give away some of the plot. Lastly, the Shanka demon, Nathaniel, he is a villain need I say more. I enjoyed the book and l'm looking forward to book 2 to see where the author takes Amy and Pueblo's story. Story: FAIR to GOOD Intimacy: GOOD Enjoyment: GOOD

Poor Elena - the most powerful witch in existence and she can't have the one thing she really wants. Her best friends Karl has been in love with her since they were kids and she thinks she may be in love with him as well. Too bad she can't do anything about it. But that's nothing when a demon starts to visit your dreams and uses your body to do horrible things while you're sleeping.  Elena and Karl need to figure out what is going on - and fast - before Elena is forced to give herself to one of the creepiest bad guys I've read. He's determined to make Elena his, but not for any good reason. Elena and Karl begin to dig into Elena's past and find some pretty amazingly scary stuff. And it's no longer just Elena that's as risk - if the demon gets what it wants, the whole world could be in danger.  There are some witchy friends and some other demonic types that play a big role in the story - I really loved Pueblo and was happy to see his name mentioned on the blurb for book two. Lots and lots of stuff happens for such a short novel, and there were a few times it got a little too rushed for me - especially the part right after the explosion (you'll know it when you read it). The ending is one big massive cluster of awesome though. I had to read it a couple times just to let it all sink in.

This is the full length story of Elena and Karl and it starts when Karl is 27. For a long time, Elena and Karl have kept their relationship purely platonic due to circumstances "beyond their control" but things are about to change. This story is full of action, romance, drama and suspense. You find out little snippets as you read along and the characters are built up. There is no insta-love in this book, just a deep and true friendship that could always have been something more if things had been different. Absolutely brilliant and an ending which definitely makes you reach for the next book in the series! Merissa Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

As if its not bad enough learning to be a witch but learning that by being a very special witch you can never have a sexual relationship with someone without it costing your powers would really suck. Elena's a 13th generation witch who lives with her best friend Karl. Karl has loved Elena since grade school, and will always be with her, even if they can't really be "together". Elena starts to get a visitor in her dreams. This demon visitor wants to posses not only Elena's powers but Elena as well. This demon is the demon king of the Shanka Demons. He has given Elena the witching pen, that when used makes what she has written come true. Karl is the only person who can bring Elena back from these horrible nightmares. When one night, Elena is willing to give up her powers to Karl just to be with him intimately, the most horrible thing happens....(sorry can't tell you). This puts Elena over the edge for vengeance. She learns learns that she is half witch half demon succubus and plans on taking out her revenge on every Shanka demon herself even if it kills her. Elena is that down to earth character that everyone likes. Karl is the boy next door that is a girls best friend, and the perfect boyfriend. I was so impressed with the creativity of this story. The world Dianna has created is like nothing I have read before which is refreshing. All the characters in the story are intriguing and it makes you want to read more about all of them. I really enjoyed this novella and would definitely recommend it.
