If someone said that I’d like another werewolf more than Jacob from Twilight, I would’ve laughed and bet a paycheck that it could never ever happen. Luckily, no one challenged me and I still have my paycheck, but not my heart because another hero came and swept me off my feet.
Who is this mystery new guy, you might ask. Let me introduce you to Brandon Ross, a secondary character in the Necromancer’s Seduction by Noemi Ghirghi, writing as Mimi Sebastian. Because of his special place not only in the novel but also in Mimi’s heart, she decided to give him the spotlight as the main hero in The Werewolf’s Devotion.
Brandon is a man with a past he struggles to leave behind. En route to finding peace he meets Solange Neves, a doctor in a small Brazilian town. There’s something about Brandon that made me fall in love with him within pages. It has nothing to do with how handsome he is, but with his heart, his emotions he tries to keep in control, his doubts and forbidden attraction. All of the above made him human, a believable, well-rounded character with qualities and flaws one could easily relate to.
Another aspect I enjoyed is Mimi’s ability to play with words. Her descriptions are clear, elegant and gracious. Like a painter is comfortable with colors and brushes, Mimi paints the surroundings and the characters effortlessly and very vivid. That’s a true talent and I applaud Mimi for it.
The story is short and geared toward the readers of the Necromancer’s Seduction, the first book in the Necromancer Series (urban fantasy). And since this is Mimi’s first release, I applaud her intricate plot development, her unique style and voice. Give her novels a try—you won’t regret it.
As a prize for launching Brandon’s story Mimi is offering The Werewolf’s Seduction as a giveaway via various contests, blog spots, etc. If you comment on her blog today, between now and 12:59 p.m. Arizona time, she’ll pick one commenter to receive the booklet. The winner will be announced tomorrow 10/31.
Good luck everyone!
