A girl's got to do what a girl's got to do.... Being a witch doesn't pay the bills, but Persephone Alcmedi gets by between reading Tarot cards, writing her syndicated newspaper column, and kenneling werewolves in the basement when the moon is full -- even if witches aren't supposed to mingle with wolves. She really reaches the end of her leash, though, when her grandmother gets kicked out of the nursing home and Seph finds herself in the doghouse about some things she's written. Then her werewolf friend Lorrie is murdered...and the high priestess of an important coven offers Seph big money to destroy the killer, a powerful vampire named Goliath Kline. Seph is a tough girl, but this time she bites off more than she can chew. She needs a little help from her friends -- werewolf friends. One of those friends, Johnny, the motorcycle-riding lead singer for the techno-metal-Goth band Lycanthropia, has a crush on her. And while Seph has always been on edge around this 6'2" leather-clad hunk, she's starting to realize that although their attraction may be dangerous, nothing could be as lethal as the showdown that awaits them.

I read several reviews before I read this and really wasn't sure what to expect since they were so varied. I have to come down on the side of the favorable ones. I enjoyed the book quite a bit. The main character was well developed and likable. Some of her goddess experiences were a little unusual, ...
In this book we have Persephone a witch who reads the tarot for people and writes a column in the local newspaper about werewolves because they have become the acceptable prejudice in the society. Denied even basic health care rights, Persephone takes up their mantle in the name of justice. In fact,...
I can’t believe Linda Robertson’s Persephone Alcmedi series has been around since 2009 and I’ve just now heard of it. Where the heck have I been hiding?I’ll start off with some things I didn’t like — they’re pretty minor (mostly), but still annoying enough that it interrupts the good “flow” of my re...
