Format: Paperback
K. E. Mills' (Karen Miller) Witches Incorporated continues the adventures of Gerald and Co. begun in Rogue Agent. The book follows Gerald as he starts his first official assignment as a Janitor. Meanwhile, Melissande, Reg and Bibbi (Monk's sister) have setup a witching agency, a one-stop-shop to solve magical problems.

My main problem with this book, and the series in general, is that it has a lot of potential but sadly falls quite short of the mark. The premise of a lacklustre wizard with a newly discovered wealth of power could have been explored in more detail, however instead Gerald was pushed to the sidelines to make way for, what is essentially, Loose Women: the novelisation.

This is no exaggeration, much of the book is taken up with the bitching and arguing between Melissande, Reg and Bibbi. Although Bibbi has a more interesting character, Reg and Melissande sound increasingly like 50 year old housewives going at it over tea and crumpets.

Another problem with the series is the language used. The books are supposed to be set in a fictional world with countries like 'Ottosland'. However, the language used by the characters constantly makes you believe they are wandering around London with words like "quid", "mate" and "cheers".

The book is almost saved from complete scrappage by the rare appearances of Gerald and Monk. The series has a planned third book and would do well to focus more on the supposed protaganist Gerald and less on the old wives club.

In short, nothing much happens. If you want a good page turner within the same genre try Jim Butcher's Dresden Files series.

Format: Paperback
As a fan of the original novel by Karen, I really couldn't wait to get this novel, so when it landed I set myself up for a wonderful day of reading pleasure. What unfurled was a tale that not only explored the world that the characters inhabit a bit deeper but went on to expose the seedier side of things as this Fantasy Crime novel exposed the hidden truths behind the ruthlessness that people are prepared to go to in order to make a few dollars more. Add to the mix (and lets face it with cakes involved there is a mix,) a book that's not afraid to laugh at itself and you've got a story that's light hearted and an easy read with a fistful of twists that will keep you guessing. Its great fun and if I get my way I want Reg the owl to get a tale at some point about her life. She's an absolute cracker and demonstrates that even supporting characters are as magical as the leads.

THis is the second in the series of books by KE Mills. IT is lighthearted and humorous but with a good and quite convoluted story.
The main characters are all likeable, I am particularly like Rex, an ancient princess who has been changed into a bird and is the heroes companion and side kick. She is nearly as cynical as I am.
If I have one criticism it is that there is an awful lot of talk and argument between the characters, I would like a little more action.
I am looking forward to the third in the series.

Every now and then I find myself reading a book that I can't wait to finish so that I can read something a little 'meatier'
Witches Incorporated is one of these books. On the surface it is a spy novel involving wizards and and a secret agency, but there is also a second story involving a detective agency run by a princess, a witch and a talking bird(also royalty but bewitched many years ago)
Now doesn't that sound as if it could be very interesting?
I certainly thought so when I started it but I was very wrong.
The characters are boring... they really shouldn't be, but they spend so much time arguing and bickering with each other, pages and pages of it, that it slows down the story quite alarmingly.
The plot itself was a good one, lots of twists and turns but the denouement was so obvious it quite spoiled it for me. I knew who the baddies were long before the end, and after that it was just a question of reading on , and waiting for the author to let me know if I was correct.
And as for the humour, well for me there were absolutely no 'laugh out loud' lines and very few smiles.
It was all very disappointing.

Format: Paperback
Second in the "Rogue Agent" series, "Witches Incorporated," doesn't pretend to be anthing other than the title suggests. Taking the old gang from the first book in the series, Witches Incorporated spins a fun tale of lightly battered frippery and slow cooked erstwhile antics, taking us on a journey from the inception of the organisation created by Melissande, Bibbie and Reg and meandering through events in the Golden Whisk cook-off, all the way through to the accidental exposure of high treason within their midst.

At the conclusion it would seem that its real puspose is to expand on the characters and set them up in business for the next book, where Witches Incorporated becomes a new arm for the Janitor's organisation. However, in its own right it told a fun story.

All in all it was very enjoyable and I found myself chuckling and finding it hard to put down. It's not a particularly cerebral read but if you're after that... then read James Joyce... once you've had your fill of misery, darkness and various other veiled complaints, you can come back and read something fun!

I can't wait for the next book and I have it on pre-order. Thanks for a great story Karen! :o)
