Cassie Scot: ParaNormal DetectiveTitle: Cassie Scot ParaNormal Detective
Author: Christina Amsden
Genre: NA, Fantasy, Paranormal, mystery, magic
Series: Cassie Scot #1

Received as part of a blog tour which in no way effected my review

In the interest of full disclosure, I ADORED this book. From the first page I knew I was going to LOVE the main character Cassie.

THE PREMISE
Cassie Scot is the ungifted daughter of powerful sorcerers, born between worlds but belonging to neither. At 21, all she wants is to find a place for herself, but earning a living as a private investigator in the shadow of her family’s reputation isn’t easy. When she is pulled into a paranormal investigation, and tempted by a powerful and handsome sorcerer, she will have to decide where she truly belongs.
(summary via Goodreads)

MY THOUGHTS
I have a lot to say about this book. All good things of course.
To begin this is probably one of my top books for the whole year...Not even kidding. (So far I've read around 90 books...)
First off Cassie was fantastic. She was a character who could fend for herself in a world full of dangerous magic people. She wasn't a damsel in distress, she was just plain old AWESOME!!!!
I loved Cassie's family, sure they were messed up and by the end I was pretty mad at them, but they were a bunch of great characters!
The idea for this book was just awesome. I haven't read anything like this and going into it, I wasn't sure it was going to be a book for me....but I ended up loving it!!!!!
There was a Harry Potter reference....just saying.....It fit so well with the part in the book that I was definitely impressed..... :)
I also loved the author's writing style! I was so real and something that I could easily connect to.
Okay I have to say that the end was just kind of killer. I NEED to know what's going to happen next, but the next book isn't out yet......I needed it like yesterday...... :'( And the Epilogue was kind of torturous! HOW COULD YOU DO THIS TO ME, CHRISTINE AMSDEN!!!!! WHY!!!!!!!!!
I also loved the love interest....I thought it was great how the romance took a backseat and Cassie was always able to focus on the job at hand instead of daydreaming about a guy....even when they were working together!
And the villain was a surprise!!! I was sooo not expecting that person, but looking back I could definitely understand it!!!!!
And Cassie was a reader!!! She also posted on blogs!! That made me happy! :)
This was an amazing paranormal detective novel!!!! IT WAS PERFECT IN EVERY WAY!!!!!
Last comment I have to make is that I loved EVERYTHING about this book, (I kid you not) EXCEPT for the cover, which I'm glad I was able to look past...(I am so that person who judges a book by it's cover...sorry..)
OVERALL
YOU NEED TO READ THIS BOOK.....NOW!!!! That is all I have to say.
WOULD I BUY THIS BOOK: YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
WOULD I READ THIS BOOK: AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN!!!!!!!!!
WOULD I RECOMMEND THIS BOOK: To mystery lovers and paranormal lovers alike!
WILL I REaD MORE BY THIS AUTHOR: YES! Especially because I love her writing style!!!
WILL I READ THE NEXT BOOK: HAVE YOU READ THIS REVIEW??? IF YOU CAN'T FIGURE OUT THE ANSWER THEN THAT'S JUST SAD....

SO WHAT ARE YOU DOING? GO READ THIS BOOK!!!!

OWL=FIVE STARS
