MY REVIEW:



The Janus WitchThe Janus Witch by Michael Scott Clifton
My rating: 4 of 5 stars


And now for something completely different-

Tressalayne is a member of a murderous witch coven, under the rule of the ruthless, Morganna. Morganna and her coven have left devastation in their wake often enough, which is why obsessed witch hunter, Robert Lockstone, is determined to end them.

When the witches are ripped through a time portal they are pulled away from Medieval times, and are thrust forward into present day, East Texas, with Lockstone hot on their trail. Their little trip through time, lands them in the hospital, where Dr. Lucas Beckett is Tressalayne’s attending physician. After running afoul of the hospital administration, Lucas takes the lovely witch away to recover, falling completely under her spell in the process.

This is Clifton’s second novel and there are no signs of the dreaded sophomore jitters. This story has everything you would want in a fantasy/romance. Evil characters, adventure, intrigue, moral dilemmas, and a unique love story that could be doomed from the start. The author did a very good job with characterization, and the writing is quite descriptive. The pacing is brisk, but at times the flow was too frenetic, leaving too little time for emotional responses to the events as they transpired. Other than that, this is an engrossing tale, very vivid, lush and suspenseful!!

This book is a nice change of pace for me. I haven’t delved into the paranormal, fantasy genres in a long time, but recently found myself drawn to them again. I’ve been searching for imagination and creativity, along with a compelling storyline that will take me into another realm, challenging me in different ways. This book did all those things, reminding me to branch out and enjoy a little bit of everything the book world has to offer, and to do it more often.

4 stars
