Anwyn Rose is descended from a long line of powerful witches yet she can barely cast spells young witchlings have mastered. She has one functioning witch gift, the power of knowing, which she puts to good use as a Detective on Flint’s Preternatural Investigation Team.

It’s a new era in Vehicle City, supernaturals are running the town.

The P.I.T has their hands full with paranormal crimes. Top priority is a serial killer, who appears to be a vampire, draining young women in the city.

Anwyn is on the case with her sexy partner Detective Mike Malone. Complicating things is her relationship with Galen, a vampire who looks more guilty than innocent, although Anwyn trusts her instincts even if her power is on the fritz.
Mysterious spells, compromising situations, and a possible demon on the loose make it hard to focus on the case, but Anwyn has to make things right before the human police execute the wrong vampire.

Hex and the Single Witch contains magick, a little bit of mystery, a lot of supernatural mayhem, and a sexy love triangle that will leave you wanting more.


I am probably the odd one out in this BUT I was rooting for the human in the vampire/human/female witch love triangle. He had more oomph to him than the vampire. Galen was made out to be intense and broody, but he was down right annoying.

I enjoyed that Anwyn, the witch, remained an adult about her love life. Too many heroine’s tend to revert to that insecure state where they question whether their love interests like them, why they are feeling what they’re feeling and etc. I call that “stuck in my head” syndrome.
But to be honest, I found Anwyn a little boring. She seemed tough as nails but she didn’t spark much in me. Maybe because she was far too sheltered. I also felt that her expertise in the book was lacking. She relied on her friend a lot. I know that she had some issues coming into her powers, but being a witch isn’t just about powers. It’s about your knowledge and your connection to that knowledge. As a Spiritual Wiccan, that I know well.

However, damn that was one helluva interesting twist in the plot. I did enjoy that the action and excitement in this book wasn’t predictable. You were kept guessing until the end.

Editing was also a key factor in the rating. I know, as a independent author, it is tough to find people who will edit and beta read for you, but it is really important. Even if you end up sitting on your story for a while. Just a personal note. It can be really distracting to see errors and you itch to want to fix them but can’t. *Sad Face*.

Anyhow, I did enjoy this and I do recommend this for any True Blood fans. It’ll hit nice and close to home with this novel.
