O a younger you at a drop of the hat is just one of them But how about when you find out your old love boyfriend is reincarnated and is just one of them But how about when you find out your old love boyfriend is reincarnated and is there Well she finds him and doesn t want to let go Even though she is a one night stand only kind of witch I found this book to be funny in some parts boring in some others minor flaw and a really fast read for over 200 pages Please note I read this in December 2010 from a copy received from Vine in xchange for an honest reviewMy Synopsis An Immerwelt - Der Pakt extraordinarily appealing book Petty Magic jumps between the present where Evelyn is 149 and having fallen in love with the young Justin is going through some crazy stunts to try to keep him from seeing the real her while maintaining her youthful disguise as long as possible and the pastspecially during World War II where she worked with OSE as a spy and where she met her first great love Jonah of whom she believes Justin is a reincarnation There are other Modern South Asia elements to the story including inter coven rivalries and accusations Understand that these women are not witches and that they sneer at the term it is used by dabblers and frooty toots as they call normals whongage in New Age Picture Theory escapades They are called beldames and their power is very real My Review Written in a style that is warm wry and often laugh out loud funny I really can t recommend this booknough for anyone who Ancestral Voices enjoys reading a good book I don tven know how to typify this one it has And Bid Him Sing elements of romance obviously but they don t overwhelm It is magical reality aspects of fantasy women s fiction actionadventure there is just a lot to love in this little book Definitely pick it up and give it a read you won t regret it You will only regret like I did that you didn t get it sooner I adoredverything about this book and read it lightning fast All I wanted to do was find a way to jump into those pages and live in the world DeAngelis created Not only is Petty Magic beautifully written but it had an old fashioned kind of feel that reminded me of fairy tales I used to read as a child with a slightly darker adult dge Enchanting is probably the best word to describe itI definitely can t wait to read it again because it was just one of those stories where you need to do a double take to make sure you didn t miss any of those great juicy detailsHighly HIGHLY recommended I m not rating this book because I can t say that I gave it a fair show I realized after I got it that it was written by someone whose other book didn t work for me at all Although I read the first 30 pages I was already predisposed. Ways in which he is so like Jonah her partner behind nemy lines in WWII and the love of her life Experts in Bones, Clones, and Biomes espionage Jonah and Eve advanced the Allied cause at great personal sacrifice and Jonah lost his life Now Eve suspects that her Jonah has returned to her and despite the disapproval of her coven and the knowledge that love with a mortal man can onlynd in sorrow she can’t give him up But can she prove it’s really hi. ,
I started reading Camille DeAngelis Petty Magic nearly a month ago and it has taken me that long to sludge through it I kept thinking that I was only just starting the book because I didn t yet feel invested in the characters or the plot only This book was Bringing the Empire Home entirely opposite of what Ixpected it to be I assumed it would be somewhat childish and well petty by the title but turned out to be a recount of historical fiction and how this particular witch found love and helped in WW2 There is much to it of course and though I would have liked a little at the nd I was very surprised at how much I njoyed the book Of course their are fantastical ideas of traveling through toilets and what not but that just adds to The Fun Of It I Think This Book Needed Another fun of it I think this book needed another by the ditor There were sentences that didn t uite make sense details that were difficult to follow lots of places where the American characters lapsed into Irish collouialisms I m still not really sure how some of the main story lines resolved What happened to the protagonist s father What happened between her parents and where did her mother go It was as if the author 2000 cool ideas and tried to sueeze them
"All Into 320 Pages "into 320 pages if those 320 pages were written under a very very tight deadline I wouldn t recommend this one Try Mary Modern instead As the title states this book is written as a memoir and as such there isn t too much of a story through it There are two threads running through life in the present and memories of Evelyn s past in Germany There she was helping the fforts against the Nazis using her magic to great advantage I found the book was a bit too full of unnecessary descriptions and Eve was uite a condescending character at times though I liked her most of the timeThe narrator had a great voice for Eve as a main character and also for the many different characters and accents though some of the foreign names were mphasized a bit strongly Added simply for the title This lagged a bit in the middle and I think my interest waned because there was too much detail but overall it s an unusually well considered paranormal novel It starts misleadingly with the narrator using her powers to seduce unsuspecting men as you do But it soon becomes serious and I don t think it s too much of a spoiler to say this is history particularly WWII history from the perspective of a witch who worked for the SOE There are important strands about family and romantic relationships too and perhaps my attention shifted a bit because De Angelis didn t uite make up her mind In this brilliantly imagined tale of adventure and timeless romance acclaimed novelist Camille DeAngelis blends WWII heroics with witchcraft and wit conjuring a fabulously rich world where beldames and mortal men dare to fall in loveEvelyn Harbinger sees nothing wrong with a one night stand At one hundred and forty nine years old Eve may look like she bakes oatmeal cookies in the afternoon and dozes in her rocking chair in the
Download ë Book, PDF or Kindle PUB À Camille DeAngelisHich was the main storyline But then perhaps that s how memoirs can beI can t uite say if this is historical fiction or romantic fiction or a spy thriller or a clever whimsical fantasy But I think De Angelus is worth watching Unless you are looking for a tale along the lines of Practical Magic or Witches of Eastwick the books not the movies many readers might be disappointed that this book doesn t feature witches similar to the current that is so popular
"But those who are willing to give it a try will be "those who are willing give it a try will be surprised by this book Evelyn comes from a long line of witches Not the type that you read about in storybooks or see in the displays at Halloween but real witches the type that live xceedingly long lives practice their arts in secret They choose to use their magic for ither benign or good something Evelyn knows all too well about After all didn t she along with several other magical beings use her magic during World War II to fight against Hitler It s during WWII that Evelyn meets the dashing Jonah the love of her life it s during this same war that She Lost Him Years Later lost him Years later is an old woman who uses her magic to give herself the semblance of her lost youth when she discovers Justin a man who resembles her dead lover in both personality appearance Is this really her dead love resurrected Also when someone challenges a member of Evelyn s family with murder can she help prove their innocenceI ll admit that this book took me a while to get into The beginning is so slow that I almost gave up if not for my rule that I should try to finish any books I receive for review It s not that the beginning was terrible or that the characters were unsympathetic it s just that the beginning is very very slow in developing Once it got past that bump though the pacing of the book improved I found that I really got involved in this book specially once the charges of murder were leveled While I ll admit that I prefer my urban fantasy witches this was a nice change of pace I found myself rather liking Evelyn HarbingerIt s just that this slow beginning was such a chore to slog through that I can t help but feel that it will put off a lot of readers Not because of the lack of flash but because it s just that slow plot wise I really do hope that many of those readers will give it another try keep trucking through the book because it really does pick up later is pretty good overall This is a good read but it will probably only appeal to some audiences ARC provided through vine Being a witch has it s perks Being able to change int. Venings but once the gray hair and wrinkles are traded for jet black tresses and porcelain skin she can still turn heads as the beautiful girl she once was Can’t fault a girl for having a little fun can you This is all fine and well until Eve meets Justin who reminds her so much of a former lover and one night is no longer nough Eve spends and nights and days romancing Justin as her younger self and noticing the many peculiar.
