This latest prequel novella that is part of the Weird Girls series caught my eye and I couldn’t resist the chance to read about where it all began for the four sisters. Whether short piece or longer, I love each new installment to the series just for a chance to visit again with the sisters, check in on a new adventure, and see a new part of their world.

This is a prequel in the chronological time line and the earliest yet since it takes things back to before they came to Tahoe. It can be read first or at any point in the series since it introduces things, but also stands alone.

The story opens when Celia and her sisters just finished nursing school and got jobs that will allow them to move on to a new place and new beginning. However, Danny calls and needs their help because a group of vampires have taken his dad and hurt him. Meeting Danny leads to their own encounter with the vamps and a trail of discovery and a race against time. Danny says their powers are bound and helps them discover the origins and details of who and what they are just as they work to help Danny get his dad back from a crazed vampire master. In the meantime, Celia has her first dream about the shadowy man who is both stranger and familiar.

This is a quick one, but it is packed with all things cool about this series- sisterly interaction time, danger, new world building stuff, secrets laid open and just a hint of the romance that is to come for Celia. It functions as a nice tide over piece as I wait (slightly impatiently) for the next full-length installment in the series. Danny’s presence is a fun addition.

All in all, loved it and always come away wanting more. Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance Lovers must try these. Start with this one in fact.

My thanks to Net Galley for the chance to read this one in exchange for an honest review.

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.

These are pretty fab. Personally, I don’t think its a bad thing to need to start these b/c its torture waiting for the next installment. 😉 These novellas in between do help the wait.
