{Book Review} Vicious Circle (Persephone Alcmedi #1) by Linda Robertson

Vicious Circle (Persephone Alcmedi #1)
by Linda Robertson
Released: June 30th 2009
Genre: Fiction- Adult: Urban Fantasy
How I got it: Received a copy from Publisher

A girl's got to do what a girl's got to do....
Being a witch doesn't pay the bills, but Persephone Alcmedi gets by between reading Tarot cards, writing her syndicated newspaper column, and kenneling werewolves in the basement when the moon is full -- even if witches aren't supposed to mingle with wolves. She really reaches the end of her leash, though, when her grandmother gets kicked out of the nursing home and Seph finds herself in the doghouse about some things she's written. Then her werewolf friend Lorrie is murdered...and the high priestess of an important coven offers Seph big money to destroy the killer, a powerful vampire named Goliath Kline. Seph is a tough girl, but this time she bites off more than she can chew. She needs a little help from her friends -- werewolf friends. One of those friends, Johnny, the motorcycle-riding lead singer for the techno-metal-Goth band Lycanthropia, has a crush on her. And while Seph has always been on edge around this 6'2" leather-clad hunk, she's starting to realize that although their attraction may be dangerous, nothing could be as lethal as the showdown that awaits them.

Review: This book is at fault for making me very grumpy, because I stayed up way late reading it. I became very enthralled with Steph's life. I wanted to know what was going to happen to her and little Beverly.
Persephone gets herself into a world of trouble trying to keep a secret. Vivian takes complete advantage of the situation and does her darnest to drag Steph down with her. Thank goodness, Steph has her family and were-friends to help her. When one gets hurt, Persephone has to look inside herself to figure out what to do next. I loved how down to earth Persephone was and how she took responsibility for her actions.
I really liked Johnny, he was funny, hunky and loyal. The plot has a lot of unexpected twists and turns, which made it very hard to put down. Add in that Steph is a very personable and I found myself interested in her outcome. I wanted her to win, and for everything to be ok. I actually felt bad when things went from bad to worst and she had to do things that compromised her beliefs.
All in all this is an awesome book, emotions are high and it's magic packed.
