Book Review-Tiddly Jinx (Book 4 in the Easy Bake Coven Series)-Liz Schulte

Monday, December 15, 2014

I will say one thing up front-this is not a stand alone book. You really have to start at Book 1 and work your way through the series. You can find the list of the other books below and I believe there will be one more coming as well. I felt like I was missing a bit here and there. If you enjoy fantasy with Fae folk, elves, vampires, witches with a couple of humans etc then this series is for you! I would even recommend this to parents of pre teens and teens!

Liz Schulte has a marvelous imagination and really comes up with some whoppers of scenes. Poor Selene who is 1/2 elf and 1/2 human (I think) really can get into lots of problems without even meaning to. Getting out of them is never as easy as it would seem. She is very lucky she has good friends and is about to marry the Elf King-unless the vampire can convince her differently.

What I especially liked was the lesson that kind of comes out--no matter the combination of parents-people are people and deserve respect!

About the Book: From the Back of the Book

Selene Warren’s life is plagued by disaster. To fix the trouble her good intentions caused, she needs to rescue the necromancer who tried to help her, find and return the Pole of Charon, and win over the Elfish people. However, nothing ever goes as planned.

The necromancer reappears in the Abyss, but is determined to be an enemy rather than a friend. The Pole of Charon can’t be tracked, yet small tears between worlds pop up and let in monsters that threaten to expose what Selene brought back. Tensions between elves and the other fae could erupt into violence at any moment, tearing apart the race once and for all.

To mend the rips in the veil, Selene’s coven will have to use black magic, but that comes at a cost. Every time a spell is cast their souls are at stake. Forced to make a deal with an enemy or let the world be destroyed, all of her the lies and double crosses start to add up. The line between good and evil blurs until Selene doesn’t know which side she is fighting for.

About the Author:
(from the Book)

Many authors claim to have known their calling from a young age. Liz Schulte, however, didn't always want to be an author. In fact, she had no clue. Liz wanted to be a veterinarian, then she wanted to be a lawyer, then she wanted to be a criminal profiler. In a valiant effort to keep from becoming Walter Mitty, Liz put pen to paper and began writing her first novel. It was at that moment she realized this is what she was meant to do. As a scribe she could be all of those things and so much more.

When Liz isn’t writing or on social networks she is inflicting movie quotes and trivia on people, reading, traveling, and hanging out with friends and family. Liz is a Midwest girl through and through, though she would be perfectly happy never having to shovel her driveway again. She has a love for all things spooky, supernatural, and snarky. Her favorite authors range from Edgar Allen Poe to Joseph Heller to Jane Austen to Jim Butcher and everything in between.

Doesn't sound bad, but I cannot start another series right now! Ha ha! I just want to know how on earth you read these books so fast?! :)

Masshole Mommy said...

This sounds like the kind of book I love to read. Maybe Santa will bring me a copy :)

Fantasy was never a genre that I particular read until I began blogging and started to realize what I had been missing out on. If I have the time to read a new series I would like to try this one.

Thank you for letting me know that isn't a stand alone item. I love reading them all at once.

Literary Winner said...

Thank you for telling us to read the whole series. I actually do think I have book 1 floating around so I will make sure to get started.

Elfs, humans and vampires? This sounds like an interesting read! I'm always inspired by your reading and book reviews! How do you find the time to fit it all in?

Scott said...

What a neat way to teach about mixed-marriages - using fictional races! Now, if it had been a human and something like an ogre...well...that may have turned out differently. ;)

Unknown said...

Looks interesting! This one definitely a catchy title!

Lesley said...

Sounds like a very good series, I'll have to add it to my reading list. I always enjoy fictional tales of situations we face every day in reality.

It really doesn't sound like something I would read but thanks for sharing

Although I have not read this particular book, I have read many by Liz and never read one I didn't like.

I love the message of respect that is delivered. Sounds like a great book to read over the holidays.

I love that the author's voice comes through in this book. It sounds like a great read.

Theresa Mahoney said...

This sounds like everything I look for in a book. Mythical creatures and a series are always at the top of my list@

Oh what a tangled web we weave...

I love the name of this book. That's a good play on words!

C.Mahan said...

The name is fun, love the cover. So cute. It also sounds like my type of book. I'll be adding this series to my GoodReads.

Ashley R said...

Interesting combo or characters in this! I usually don't commit to series, but this sounds intriguing!

Liz Mays said...

I'm going to suggest this to my friend for her daughter. She's at the perfect age.
