The blurb on this one grabbed my attention and I got that shiver of excitement that maybe I had stumbled across a new UF series to love.  Sure enough, I wasn’t past the first few pages before I was laughing over Celia, the heroine’s wry monologue in her mind over the tough spot she was in along with her equally fun and hilarious sisters, Taran, Shayna and Emme.

The book opens with the four Wird sisters standing before the vampire court on charges that they destroyed one of Master Misha’s vampires.  They prove that he attacked them first and now the vampires realize they have an even bigger problem.  Misha’s vampires have been infected and many have gone into bloodlust.  Misha asks Celia for help dealing with the problem.  At the same time, Celia has encountered the local alpha wolf thinking he was a cutie, but now he wants her to stay out of it while he and the other wolf warriors put down the vampire infection threat.

Celia and her sisters all are human, but they possess unique powers that leave them with the skills to help Misha and protect the human population around Lake Tahoe area.  They do help and run into further danger, but with humor and a bit of luck along with Misha, Aric and their people are able to get through it all.  If only Celia can figure out what to do with the attentions of both a Master Vampire and a strongly attractive alpha who is destined for a purebred were instead of a weird cursed girl like her.

This intro to Ms. Robson’s Weird Girls’ world, the characters, the humorous yet dangerous tone and the twisty plot was just a joy all around.  I love it when an author can make me laugh out loud, love the characters and swoon over the romance.  I really look forward to continuing forward to see where this series is going to take things.  The four sisters are abso-fab and I definitely want more time with them.

Those who enjoy light Urban Fantasy that still packs a dangerous punch should give this one a try.

I was born and raised near Sacramento, CA. I have read since I was four years old and developed tastes that run the gamut of literature. I went away to college and have a degree in education, a certificate in family history research, and a certificate in social work. I worked for a non-profit agency with low income families for 20 years which included being responsible for the children’s library and promoting/teaching adult literacy. I have lived in Southeast Michigan for the last 18 years and I am currently a book addicted homemaker with a cat and husband who keep me grounded. Recently, I made it a challenge to review each book that I have read as a favor to author friends who said reviews are important. I have done reviews for Good Reads, Amazon, eBay, and Smashwords, but mostly at Goodreads and Amazon.
  • This series has been on my wishlist for way too long; I’m hoping to listen to the audiobook later this year. Glad to hear it packs a punch! Great review. 🙂

    • Any time a book can make me laugh while keeping me on the edge of my seat and while making me squirm all at the same time will totally get my vote. Hope you get that chance to listen to it really soon Carmel.

  • Ahh I’m glad I’m not the only one late to the game with this series. I just won one of them and am gonna start them soon. I do love those ones that really make you chuckle and laugh out loud. So fun to find ones like that. A bit of swooning is good too 🙂

    • I’m late to a lot of the good ones. I had the third book for review and decided that this would be one of the series I’d tackle this year. They were all so good that I bombarded Shari with reviews for all three novels. I still need to go back and read the novellas. When these sisters are together or when their neighbor makes an appearance, I started smiling in anticipation of getting to laugh.

      • LOL Nice. I love when you can binge on a series. That is the good part about being slow to the game. At least you don’t have to wait ages between books 🙂

        • Oh you would have to mention waiting. Each of these ends on a cliffhanger of sorts including the last one released. I totally have to sit pouting and kicking my keds against the curb until book four. But I get what you’re saying. I managed to read KMM’s fever series in like a week- total book hangover.

    I swear in my group of friends I am the only one who did not read this book along with them. I still have to read it. But i keep hearing great things about it. I hope to get to it this year sometime.

    • You are not alone, Mariya! I am frequently a day late for books that everyone else is raving about. I hope you get some time to pick this series up too.

  • I only read the prequel in the series and I have to say it took me a minute to like Celia. But I did enjoy the sister comradery, they were such strong chica’s. I have to catch up to with this one…everyone seems to love it to death.

    • I haven’t read the prequel yet or the other in between novella, but I will since this is one of the series I picked for your challenge. My favorite sister is Shayna, but I do love when they’re all together and cracking me up.
