Book Description

When teen witch Ivy MacTavish changes a lizard into her date for a Halloween dance, everything turns to chaos. And when no one is powerful enough to transform him back except Ivy, it sparks the rumor: Like father, like daughter. Ivy has heard it all before - that her father, who left when she was seven – was involved with the darkest of magic.

Making the rumors worse, someone uses an evil spell book to bring back two of history's most nefarious killers. Ivy's got a simple plan to set things right: find the real dark spell caster, steal the book, and reverse the spell. No problem! But she’ll have to deal with something more dangerous than murderous spirits that want her and her friends dead: the school’s resident bad boy and hotter-than-brimstone demon, Nick Marcelli. Nick’s offering Ivy more than his help with recovering the missing book – he’s offering her a way to ditch her scaly reputation as a lizard-lover. Demons are about as hard to handle as black magic, and as Ivy soon discovers, it’s going to take more than a lot of luck and a little charm if she wants to survive long enough to clear her status as a dark witch, get a warm-blooded boyfriend, and have her former date back to eating meal worms before the week’s end.

More About the Author

Michelle has always loved storytelling. When she was a child, her favorite stories were of monsters and things that lurked in the dark. Telling stories often frightened her classmates and got her into a lot of trouble with her teachers. They had no sense of humor.

As an adult, Michelle traded her love of writing for the corporate life where she was an IT professional. Today, she's doing what she loves best - writing and storytelling.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wicked, Good Fun 16 Oct. 2012
Format:Paperback
Meet Ivy, Shayde and Raven - with names like those, this promised to be a good story.

Northwick is a town filled with humans and supernaturals. Ivy, like any other sixteen year old girl, has a crush on one of the most gorgeous boys at school, Dean. Dean is a bonehead and prefers the company of the bitchy Tara. What's a girl to do? Well, if you're a witch like Ivy, you cast a spell to turn your friend's lizard, Spike, into a scrumptious human.

Like all the best laid plans, Ivy's doesn't work out too well. Pretty soon everyone in town is whispering that Ivy is just like her father, a user of dark magic. Then the murders begin, and Ivy soon realises someone has gotten their grubby hands on one of the most dangerous, magical books ever, the Book of Lost Souls. This mischief maker has released scary figures from the past such as Elizabeth Bathory and Vlad the Impaler upon the unsuspecting community, and it's up to Ivy and her pals to figure it all out. In the midst of all the mayhem, Ivy grows closer to Nick, who happens to be a demon and is totally in love with Ivy. But everyone knows demons are trouble, so Ivy attempts to ignore her feelings for him, at first.

I enjoyed the characters in the book, well, the supes anyhow, and I couldn't help but feel awful about the fact that Raven and her brother, Gareth (the latter who is only 14) are going to have to be teenage vampires forever. There's something so terribly sad about being frozen at the age of 14. It reminded me of poor Claudia from Interview with the Vampire, trapped forever in the body of a 5 year old.

The moments of comedy had me laughing out loud, and most of these happened when lizardman, Spike, was in the mix. He had me in stitches when he comes face to face with the blood thirsty, Elizabeth Bathory.

4.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! 28 May 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
This book was definitely a pleasant surprise. I knew from the start it would be a great, fun read that would be perfect to sit down with in the sun along with a nice cup of tea!

It definitely wasn't what I was expecting. I read it entirely in one sitting it was that entertaining. It sort of appeals to the mischievous, high school girl in me.

I loved all of the characters and the way they interacted as friends or otherwise. They developed perfectly throughout the story and were all relatable and realistic. I loved how each of them had a certain characteristic that was pointed out at sometime in the story, it made them that much more three-dimensional as characters and it added to the story somewhat.

What I enjoyed most about this book though is how much of a laugh it really was. There were some really fun and creative ideas strewn throughout that made me smile and some great conversations that made me laugh. There was it's fair share of serious events though which balanced it out considerably, like the mystery in the plot and the protagonist's relationship with her father...and her complicated love life!

Speaking of, the plot was fantastic! Really original and it kept me on the edge of my seat at times. A real page-turner.

There were a few twists and turns too which definitely kept me interested and the ending was brilliant. I can't wait for more from this author in particular.

All in all this read was a perfect mix of drama and humour and is a fun, entertaining read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Book 17 Jun. 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I love Michelle's work and have followed it for a while, so I was over the moon when her book was published and she asked me to review it. This book did not fail to disappoint, it was everything I could hope for, excitement, magic, mystery, hot guys and witches.

The plot is a real page turner, it will keep you riveted until it is finished and yet leave you wanting more. I could fully relate to the characters who intertwined with each other perfectly. There are so many funny moments in this book, which will leave you smiling to yourself or giving out a little laugh, it really is a pleasure to read. However it wasn't all fun and light, there is mystery, a complicated love life and a strained relationship.

The book is based in a small town called Nothwick, where all sorts of supernaturals live amongst humans. The main character is a young girl called Ivy, who is a witch. Her father is into Dark magic, which she is tempted with at times. She's in that between stage, starting to mature but still young. I think she is a great main character, one you could relate to as a teen or your inner teen.

Ivy is a "kindred" teen, which means anything that is supernatural in The Book of Lost Souls, it is hard enough being a teenager without using dark magic to get a date. Then the hot, smoking, bad boy Nick, who's a demon offers her a chance to have it all. Will she take it and risk everything? I for one was routing for Nick. He's a great character.

I think Ivy is a great role model for any YA, she makes mistakes, as we all do, but she learns from them. She is also a loyal friend, which is reciprocated. This book is the classic struggle between good and evil, but not predictable. It's a dark book, but a light and fun read.
