Review - "Cassie Scot: ParaNormal Detective" by Christine Amsden

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.

About this author

Christine Amsden has been writing science fiction and fantasy for as long as she can remember. She loves to write and it is her dream that others will be inspired by this love and by her stories. Speculative fiction is fun, magical, and imaginative but great speculative fiction is about real people defining themselves through extraordinary situations. Christine writes primarily about people and it is in this way that she strives to make science fiction and fantasy meaningful for everyone.

Christine currently lives in the Kansas City area with her husband, Austin, who has been her biggest fan and the key to her success. They have two beautiful children.


My Review:

Cassie Scot is a child of two powerful sorcerers, every one of her siblings have some sort of gift except Cassie.  Being an ungifted child of sorcerers, Cassie has never fit in with the supernatural world but yet she doesn’t fit in with the human world because of who she is.  Cassie is running a private investigation office and things are slow…like real slow.  Now working with the one sorcerer that she shouldn’t trust but yet she can’t help but feel that way she did about him as a young girl.  Cassie is thrown into a case of murder, vampires, and witchcraft.   

Right off from the beginning I was drawn into the story of a normal child born to a family of sorcerers.  Cassie has struggled all her life to fit in to both worlds but yet has not truly succeeded.  I loved Cassie and even felt connected to her.  The story line itself was well written and all the characters added a unique touch to the story.  There was action (of course what would you expect with a book about sorcerer’s), sadness, and love.  I am very happy to have been given a copy of the book to read for an honest review and look forward to book 2 to see what happens with Cassie next.
