Rehab is For Witches

“We will make a searching and fearless moral and magical inventory of ourselves.”

When six magical miscreants dabble with black magic, they end up together at Incantations, the town’s rehab center for witches gone awry.

Rehab is For Witches

“We will make direct amends to such beings whenever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.”

Some witches might have bent the rules. A teensy bit.

Pelican Freak’s Review:

Short version –
A great read, impossible to put down. Read within 24 hours. Just needs to be proofread as the mistakes/typos/etc. are a bit more abundant than I’d prefer.

Long version –

Character Development:
Brilliant and consistent with its predecessor, as most characters we were introduced to previously. I feel very attached to the protagonist and desperately curious about how the antagonists turn out – eagerly waiting for more of this group.

Editing/Proofing:
Fewer mistakes here than in Book 1 but – still too many. Needs a pass by a proofreader. Though the continuity is much better, flows much better so there’s definitely improvement.

Cover:
Gorgeous, fitting. Matches the theme and the series. Love it.

Formating:
Perfect. Easy on the eyes.

Plot / Reading experience:
Very fast-paced. Seriously could NOT put it down. I read the physical book because I was fortunate enough to come into a signed copy .. I normally avoid physical books because of the pain level (severe RA). I would put this book down because of the pain in my hands from holding it… and promptly pick it back up. I missed the book… more than I cared about the pain that holding it would cause!

A wild ride. Good continuity – MUCH better than its predecessor. Mysterious at times. Always fun. Dramatic. A 5-star read. The only reason I haven’t rated it 5 stars is because of the need for a proofread; professionally it isn’t a 5-star package. But truly, truly a 5-star read.
I hope the author will consider a proofread and a reprint so that this book becomes the overall-5-star-book that the story contained in it is.

I also am officially a huge fan of Clark-Kemp and will devour all the words she has written. I am extremely picky and demanding. It’s not often an author (or anyone/anything) keeps me this entertained, and it’s even less often that I overlook mistakes in a published work long enough to keep reading. I hope the author never stops writing and I whole-heartedly recommend her.

Bottom line : This is a 5star read in a 3/4 star package.

*This book is #2 in the Vyberdex Series. Book 1, Blood and Shattered Glass, can be found here:  http://amzn.to/1VMfvua

Written by the brilliant Tyffani Clark Kemp.

 

Because this is my blog and not amazon or Goodreads, I don’t have to worry about a star rating as much…  Instead you can find my breakdown of the different things that impact my reading experience and overall takeaway here:

 

This review is a bit tricky to write.
Short version: storyline is a 5-star read, but it’s presented in an unprofessional manner due to subpar editing.

Long version:

Character development:
… is brilliant. Truly brilliant, and I felt there was good continuity in regards to who the characters are as people and how they relate to everything/ everyone. Really great characters that you’ll love to hate or find yourself rooting for and feeling for.

Romance aspect:
I could absolutely feel some of the feelings as I read- that doesn’t often happen for me. Also the sex scenes were to the point, so they managed to be hot without being cheesy or dragged out. Very well done.

The plot:
It’s truly a really fun read. Problem for me was, there were some continuity issues. Several small ones and a few bigger ones so it did become distracting. Sure, nothing’s perfect but there were enough that it distracted from the reading experience at times. Normally, with holes/discrepancies like that, I’d dislike the book and rate it low – I think it’s important to note that this story made it all “worth it”, meaning despite the imperfections, I couldn’t put the book down.

I mean, I literally haven’t slept in 2 days because I NEEDED to keep going. Now that it’s over, I even miss it so I’ll be likely jumping into Book 2 and just hoping it’s professionally edited because… I think I’m hooked.

Normally with the number of mistakes I found in this book, I’d not continue in the series, if I even continued Book 1 at all. So again, I think the quality of the story and character development are impressive because I can’t seem to resist this series.

Editing/Proofing:
This book seems like it either was self-edited, or not edited. There is an abundance of things like poor grammar, mis-used words, etc. I think if an editor or at least a proofreader were to take a pass through this, it could be made into the overall-5-star presentation that this story / plot /these characters deserve. I think it’s a shame that the lack of editing is able to impact such a great read to such an extent as to distract from the reading experience.

Cover:
The cover seems professionally done. It looks great and is relevant without being redundant – A+.

Again, in summary. Brilliant writing and design overall. Proper editing would bring this read to the 5stars it deserves.

I do recommend it – as long as you are someone who can get past or won’t notice the mistakes, and won’t dwell on the continuity issues.
