Review - Hallowed Circle

Hallowed Circle
By Linda Robertson
Publisher: Pocket Books
Pub. Date: December 29, 2009
ISBN: 978-1439156780
Pages: 384


Picking up shortly after the events of Vicious Circle, Persephone Alcmedi (or as everyone calls her, Seph) now has guardianship of her late friend's daughter, Beverly, while at the same time dealing with her Nana, who is also living with her. She spends her days reading Tarot cards, writing a syndicated newspaper column, and what ever she can do to pay the bills, she even has a werewolf kennel in her basement. And there is also the known fact that she is a witch.

Out of the blue, Seph is talked into competing for the position of High Priestess of the Cleveland coven. The former priestess, Vivian Diamond, has disappeared without a trace, well that is what everyone else things, but Seph knows what happened to Vivian. That is one of the secrets, along with the fact that she is connected to the vampire-wizard Menessos, that Seph is trying to keep from the other witches, especially Hunter Hopewell.

To make things worse, her sort of werewolf boyfriend, Johnny, is starting some trouble along with some unwanted fairies. And Seph must deal with her new powers if she is to survive the competition.

Once again the author, Linda Robertson, has created an intriguing fantasy mystery with a likeable heroine, Persephone Alcmedi. The character has grown up quite a bit and has a lot of responsibility on her shoulders with being the guardian of a young girl, handling her werewolf boyfriend problems, dealing with her new powers, and solving another murder mystery. There are twists and turns at every corner in this page turner sequel. I enjoyed reading every bit of Hallowed Circle and I plan on jumping right into the third book, Fatal Circle.
