Review: Hallow's Eve by Pippa Jay

It's a review... something that rarely happens, but I had to read this one. Have you seen the cover? If not, I've got it right here. 

Now a review: 

Holy Sweet Paranormal Romance Batman. 

No, literally, this is sweet, short paranormal romance. There's tons of potential with this world that Pippa has created and I love a good story with a tortured hero. 

Let's talk about that hero, Hallow. Hal, to his friends, is a warlock, like his father before him. Generations of warlocks and witches have lived in his home, and he is capable of magic I wouldn't touch with a six foot pole. 

Our heroine, Eve, doesn't get as much air time as I would've liked, but what I did get is a well-rounded, likeable character who definitely deserves Hal's devotion. 

Add in some wicked warlocks and witches who exist as a magic governing body called The Circle, a brownie housekeeper, a dog who just needs some loving, and a touch of a miracle AND you get a quick, short read that will spike all those good fall and Halloween feels. 

I hope at some point Pippa will go back and explore this world she's given me a taste of. I wouldn't mind spending a little more time with Hal and Eve either.
