Series: Witch's Night Out #2
Publication Date: November 21, 2014
Genre: Paranormal Romance
This was a very, very short read that I zipped through in about an hour. There were some strong aspects, such as the writing and the characters. Then there were some weaker elements, such as the story flow. But overall, it was a good book.
I liked the paranormal aspects a lot. Quan seems to have really nailed down the powers her characters possess and just makes sure they each stay in their lane. This is nice because it keeps down confusion. Jack is an ice mage and Mina is an empath. And done.
Mina was a fun, amiable character who was easy to like right off the bat. Jack took a while. He came off a bit whiny and annoying at first but then morphed into Mr. Super Hotness about halfway in. So he redeemed himself and the rest of the book was a pleasure to read.
As for the flow...it was a bit weighed down with all the extra information we get in the first half of the book. In some places I felt I didn't need to really know what I was being told. Other times, important info could have been relayed in fewer words. It doesn't make this a bad story, but it's definitely something that held the book back from being really great.
Quan's solid writing really kept this story alive. Her style had a nice ring to it and I appreciated the ease in which her words flowed together. So, another plus for this story.
I now need to read the other Witch's Night Out stories and see what else Quan has up her sleeve. From the reviews I've read, there's no way I will be disappointed and I'm looking forward to finishing up this series.
