Still, she's managed to survive a giant red troll, night mare horses, and fire-setting bugs. This time it's a creature from Unity who needs her help. And it doesn't hurt tha

i don't think i have ever had less to say about a book.

i read this under circumstances pretty much guaranteed to distract me from the book, but the book wasn't doing me any favors as far as trying to hold my attention, so we both contributed to our failure.

oh, by the way - i haven't written a book review in days and days, and i have nothing substantive to say about this book, so if you are one of these people who are going to attack me for "not writing about the book," you can pretty much stop

Please note this is book 4 in the series, I didn't read book 3 FIREWORKS IN THE HAMPTONS, so I'm going into this a little behind the times.

Once again we return to the world of Willow Tate, graphic novelist by choice and Visualizer against her better judgment. Weird things are happening in the Hamptons and Paumanok Harbor in particular, as a string of crimes, rare bird sightings and dolphins giving the heave-ho to surfers. The locals blame Willow for it, despite the fact she doesn't have anything

(NOTE: For anyone keeping track of my read durations, I feel obliged to point out that this series is not as tough to get through as those long read times may make it seem. In fact, they're pretty quick "beach read" books; I've just been swamped with both work and doing some writing of my own, which has left much less brain space for reading.)

Anyway, this penultimate book in the series is really more like the first half of a double-length finale. While each book has built on the previous volumes

Willow Tate is a successful graphic artist whose drawings seem literally to come alive. When a cruise ship is wrecked by a rogue wave bearing a strong likeness to an elemental in one of her stories"," matters get out of hand. Then there's the rare bird that isn't from this world at all"," and a spate of robberies in the Paumanok neighborhood. To top it off"," Willow's having doubts about her on/off romance with the local vet.When all your friends and relatives are psychic"," it's really difficul ...more

I love this series. It is written in such a fun way, much different than typical stories. It is written in first person, but in the way that you can get the character's personality from the way it is written as from the descriptions used in the more

Definitely fluff, but very good fluff of it's kind. Between Harry, Jayné, Cal and the evening news amongst other things, I needed a good bit of fluff.

I like Willow and the community she lives in; not great story telling, but fun and an enjoyable weekend read.

Not my favorite in this series. Not sure where I want the series to go, but it seems slow this time around. I do enjoy The House as an interesting addition.
