And in some glorious future, we'll be able to replace the novelist with some kind of whisky-fuelled story algorithm machine. Ah, progress!
Jules is a Night Witch who practices dark magic. She has been blessed with the charms of Charisma and Seduction, but not the one charm that she covets the most, Allure. Her desire to stay young and beautiful has led Jules down a dangerous path of draining men for their youth. When Jules has the opportunity to drain a powerful Witch of her Allure, Jules uses everything within her reach including her friend Morgan to get what she wants.
This is a quick novelette in the Singularity series. Jules shows the dark side of the witches and the lengths that some witches are willing to go to for power. For a quick read, the characters are well developed. Jules' cutthroat nature shines as a dark witch and her friendship with Morgan is interesting. With a deliciously evil twist at the end, this makes a fun, witchy Halloween read.
