Overview

Jinx High (Diana Tregarde Investigations Series #3) by Mercedes Lackey

Fay Harper looks like any other teenage girl--any other Queen Bee, that is. She's blond, and beautiful, and very, very popular--the kind of popular that attracts boys like honey. Fay and her gang take a lot of risks, but so far they've managed to get away with everything. It's as if they are magically protected.

Summoned to Tulsa by an old friend whose son has fallen in with Fay's crowd, Diana Tregarde, practicing witch and successful romance novelist, quickly finds herself in hot water. The new girl at school, Monica Carlin, has come under sorcerous attack, but Diana cannot identify, or stop, the power-wielder. To make matters worse, there is an ancient being sleeping under Tulsa, a being who might be woken by the magic battles taking place in the city. What will happen then, even Diana cannot predict... in Mercedes Lackey's Jinx High.

I've waited nearly twenty years for this book. It was nowhere as good as the first two books (which should actually be read just the opposite of how they are numbered). Didn't feel this was really Diana's book. More of a teen angst book. And I was rather disappointed with the ending, especially since there won't be any more in the series. But at least, after all of these years I finally have the complete trilogy.

I love Lackey's Diana Tregarde books that chronologically start with Children of the Night and continues with Burning Water (which was published first). This is the last of them--I've read that they didn't sell well so Lackey won't be writing others, which I think is a shame. I like Diana and the other characters here, and find her as much or more an appealing Urban Fantasy heroine than many on the bestseller lists. Lackey clearly did her homework on Wicca and magical practice in a way that gives the ceremonial magic in the stories some verisimilitude. The Tregarde stories in general and "Jinx High" are entertaining reads, among Lackey's best, and I only hope someday we might see more.

Derek Kestrel is cruising in his girlfriend Fay Harper¿s car with some of their friends when suddenly she gets angry and disappears. The teen in the back seat is trying to grab the wheel when an accident happens and she is thrown into the windshield. Fay reappears and they are all sent to the hospital where tests show nobody was drinking even though they all were. Derek¿s father senses something evil is trying to get their hooks into his son and he calls on his old friend Diana for help.--------------------- Fay is a very powerful sorceress who for over three centuries has transferred her essence into that of her adolescence female child, retaining the knowledge from one jump to the next. When a school friend of Derek¿s is magically attacked by imps Diana believes that there is someone older and powerful working magic in the area. She doesn¿t see Fay as a threat or know that she is using blood, sex, and death magic to get even with those who cross her. To make matters worse, the area that Derek lives is a null zone because the gods don¿t want to wake the sleeping One Below who is being disturbed by the magic she senses in her dream state.------------ This is the third and last Diana Tregarde urban fantasy and it stands the test of time as readers will love reading this dark fantasy that was written in 1991 before the author became famous. Although readers know who the villain is and what she does, the fun is in watching Diana trying to find and stop her before more lives are ruined. Teen-agers as well as adults will love this dark magic classic.-------- Harriet Klausner
