Broom with a View Book Review and #Giveaway
I recently had the opportunity to review Gayla Twist's new book 'Broom with a View'. This book is a little different than what she is normally known for writing as she co-wrote it with Ted Naifeh. This book still keeps to her vampire roots, but has more to do with witches, warlocks, and other mythical creatures. It has a refreshing change from the human falling for the vampire (which is a fantastic story), and gives the reader a little more into a mythical, magical world.
When Violet Popwell is sent to live in the city-state of X, accompanied by her great-aunt Vera as her caretaker, they find themselves staying in a land that thrives on magic. This land is accepting of all magical creatures even the likes of vampires. When the two woman realize that they are staying in the same pension with the Count Du Monde and his son Sebastian, it lead to an uneasy feeling in Vera. When the onset of the vampire/witch war falls onto the city of X, Violet finds herself in the arms of the young Sebastian and believes she puts him under a love spell by accident.
The rest of the story focuses on the vampire and witches (crafter's) and how the Violet and her family are trying to stop the war in order to be reunited together. The twists and turns that occur in this book keep you wanting to read more and learn more about all the interesting characters that you meet along the way. I absolutely love that this book was able to marry together all magical creatures, vampires and humans together in a very unexpected way that keeps you guessing right to the end.
Available to Purchase/Cost: $2.99/7.47 Broom with a View
Recommendation: I highly recommend reading this book if you like fantasy and reading about mythical creatures and vampires. I love Gayla Twist's writing and I am eagerly awaiting the newest installment of the Vanderlind series but this book was a great way to get me back into wanting to read.
