An interesting story that would ordinarily have enough going on to keep the reader turning the pages. What makes this book different is how West brings it to life. Forget the plot and the majority of the charters, this is a book about Izzy. In a world of sullen hero’s and pouty divas, we are introduced to Izzy. a self deprecating woman, with low self esteem, prone to donut consumption. The book is about how she reacts to being plunged into a crazy world, filled with vampires and demons. She was a joy to be with. Hilarious at times, but also caring and loving too. West brings this character to life with such skill and ease. Maybe there is a small slice of the author in the character. I sincerely hope so. I look forward to reading more stories from this talented writer. Superbly done.
