First and foremost, I loved the book. In fact I read it right through in one sitting. I simply could not set it down. It has action, thrill and sexy scenes. It made me laugh and my heart race. This is a very good book.
The story line was smooth and well defined. I could relate to the characters and the way they developed over the cause of the book.

EXCERPT:

There were only two reasons for me to be awake on my couch, staring up into the gloom of the pre-dawn hours. The first is my house itself, which complained against the deep cold with creaking pops like the knees of a guy who played sports a long time ago when he was younger and had more hair.

The second was Wulfric. My lover was out there in the Adirondack winter somewhere, his vampire skin now as cold as the deep snows that settled on Halfway with a heavy hand. I missed him every second of every day with an ache that started in my heart and ended in the emptiness of my arms. Living without him was like swimming through wool that took my breath and will at every turn.

Everything was hard. Little things made me sad.

Smiles died on my face and I knew if I didn’t find the magic to save him, moving on was going to take the rest of my life and all of my tears. In the midst of my somber reverie, my giant familiar Gus put one of his Maine Coon cat paws on my shoulder. His rumbling purr calmed my mind enough that I sighed and began absently rubbing the magnificent fur of his Tabby neck.

“Brrrrtt?” He asked me, his bronze eyes fixed on me like two coals floating in the dark.

“I miss him. Sorry. I know I should sleep. Or listen for spell requests . . . or do anything except lay here having a pity party.”

Gus answered with a head butt and an even deeper bumble of contented reassurance. He stretched along me from hip to head and I was reminded again that my cat is nearly as tall as I am. Or he would be, if cats could walk upright, but he doesn’t because that would be weird. I felt a small grin touch my cheeks and let it bloom, then looked across the room to the kitchen. There, I saw another friend who was always near.

Even in the heart of a mountain winter, the moon always finds a way to touch me. Laying on my couch in the middle of a frigid night, I watch the square of moonlight light dance across my kitchen floor like the slowest ballet possible. The brilliant smudge of light comforts me, telling me that no matter how short the days and how deep the snows, sunshine will use the face of sister moon to reach across the dark and set my spirits to right.

So I watch, and I wait.

I listen for the telltale creak of my mail slot, an old brass hinge that swings inward when someone needs me. Or, to be more accurate, they need my magic. When the moon is high, I spend my nights listening for the telltale footsteps on my porch. Those are followed by a hesitation as the person decides if they can go through with their request—they always do—and then I wait a bit longer. It’s understood that to ask for my family magic, you must write a note in natural ink, then fold the note within an envelope that is hand made. Hand crafting invests meaning into something as simple as a note, and the poignant pleas I get range from simple to impossible.

But I always try.

Tonight, there was no slide of an envelope on the floor of my foyer. Perhaps it was too cold, although Adirondackers are tough people. A few feet of snow and subzero temperatures wouldn’t stop a local person from asking for help if they needed it, which meant that at least or tonight, my town was free of unusual heartache.

In witch parlance, the night was clean. Spirits were at rest, and after casting a final wish across the snowdrifts to Wulfric, so was I. Before dawn’s gray could pierce the low clouds covering the mountains, my eyes grew heavy, I let the sadness leave me, and then, when there was nothing else to fight, I slept.

First I want to say that I got this book for free, to review by the Author. It’s the first book of his that I have ever read. This is also the third book in the series, but can be read as a standalone book as I have done.

Synopsis:
What would have happened if Japan’s feudal era never stopped?
Japan’s feudal era took place from 1185 to 1600 but was most prominent from 1400-1600 AD. It’s also called the warring states era. In this book the era never stopped, but became the future of Japan. Here the Shoguns are presidents of major corporations and have divided Japan into sections under their control. They use Samurais and Ninjas to defend and spy on each other and are constantly fighting, spying and stealing. In this book you follow Mamoru who is a samurai for the Tokyo Shogun. Things happen in his world of order, that makes him reconsider his view on life and his purpose in it. He is a new type of samurai, who fights with technology as much as with a sword. Like Neo in the Matrix he has to decide if he wants to go back to the life he knows or step into the unknown and fight.

The book start out at full speed with an elaborate virtual battle scene. You watch as a samurai assassin (Mamoru) fights in a match where the real and the virtual blend in a dance to the death. After he finishes the assassination, one of his supervisors shows up at his house and the following scene takes place:

Quote chapter three:
“The way she looked at him made him uncomfortable, as if he were a bit of sashimi she debated consuming. No one else in the service of Matsushita could equal him, inside or outside the GlobeNet. A serious frown curled his lip. This woman would have him as a personal guard, wiling away each day inside an office attending to her every need. He thought of Nami and Ayame, of the blinking red light, and adjusted the collar of his haori jacket.”

Conclusion:
One of the things that has stood out to me are all the many details in dialogue and descriptions. It’s a book to read slowly over time, so you are able to take in all the details. It’s a clever marriage of Science fiction and suspense. It made me want to read the previous books in the series.
Anime lovers of Ghost in the shell and Psycho Pass will love this book, since the worlds are very similar.
Though the book has some mature content I would still recommend it for young adults who will love the action, world and movie like writing style.

This is the third installment in the Halfway series. Each book can be read as a standalone but they are best read in order. The series follows young witch Carly, her friends and family, and their adventures around the small town of Halfway. Carly and her family has been protectors of the area for centuries. They protect the land and people from evil supernatural beings, and keep the law in place for the super naturals living there.
The books are witty like a cozy mystery, full of heart and love, but they also has plenty of action and mystery. In all three books the ending has been a surprise to me, and I love that. The story line and style will appeal to young adults and mature adults a like.

A great place to find a book
