Just The Right Amount Of Witchy Sass, Humor, and “Je ne sais quoi?"
King‘s depiction of a witch obsessed with revenge and drunk on her own power is spell-binding as main character, Prudence, strikes out on a devious plot to separate two lovers, Jade and Gavin, and put a stop to proposed legislation to keep it from becoming law. Prudence is determined that nothing will stand in her way... even if she must wake the dead for help. As King states in her tag line for this paranormal fantasy novel—the second chapter in her Surviving the Sins Series, “No one is safe when a witch’s pride is at stake!”
First, I want to state that I didn’t have the pleasure of reading King’s first novel in this series, however she provides just the right amount of background information in “Pride” so a reader may understand the basis for her characters’ motives without getting lost in the current plotline.
King’s story is well-rounded and flows fairly well. As a stand-alone read, there are just a few places where “Pride” feels a bit disjointed and one has a rare sense of getting lost in the plotline. But, readers will relish this enchanting tale as the author throws a proverbial curve ball and takes her yarn into a whole new dimension when her characters uncover an ancient mystery in the town graveyard.
Following Prudence on her mission is tinged with just the right amount of witchy sass, humor, and “Je ne sais quoi?” to keep this character quite likable, even as she manipulates circumstances to get what she wants accomplished. But, are Prudence’s motives all her own, or does something else sit at the heart of all this maneuvering?
This quick tale—at less than 200 pages—is an effortless and entertaining weekend read with plenty of time left for readers to checkout this series’ previous and remaining chapters.Find “Pride (Surviving the Sins Book 2)” by C. A. King on Amazon & Kindle here.
