I think it's hard in a short story to create a unique setting, characters, etc., and still get some sort of story line in. In One Less Warlock, Judith did an excellent job of molding the story in such a way that we got a taste of a distinct world and character personalities, and a complete story to go with it. In this short story Judith was able to pack in witches, vampires, a sexy Were, succubus, voodoo, murder, and mystery, all in only about 20 pages. Pretty amazing.

I enjoyed the story and Ba

This was the first work of Judith Post's that I have read and I believe that I have stumbled upon an incredibly talented author.

It takes some serious talent to engage a reader in such a short novella. She has managed to convey an entire paranormal/human integrated society in just a few pages.

Babet is a witch who lives in River City. Prosper is a were who works for the Enforcers (a type of police).

When a warlock is found dead in his home, Babet is called in to help the Enforcers solve the crime.

I love Judith Post's writing style! It's just like having your hand on the protagonist's pulse. It's sharp and firm and Post is in complete control of her storylines. I loved the characters and found the format just right for this "lunchtime read".

I really think that the author is wonderful the book not so much. It is another case of a really short story that left a lot to be desired and to the imagination. I really like reading a story that gives you substance the entire book. Maybe because this is a short story with no series in site. I hate leaving a non-series book wanting more and this normally causes low ratings. This book was entirely too short to review so I will give the author a solid

This is the third novella I have read by Judith Post and I am hooked! She certainly knows how to draw readers in and keep them captivated.
One Less Warlock is the first of the Babet and Prosper series and I can not wait to dive into the second. I highly recommend this novella for any fan of the paranormal as well as anyone looking for a quick afternoon or lunch time read.
I enjoyed the beginning to a point but then it just kinda fell out of line for me. Just finished reading it in about 45 min and it WAS delightful till the plot ended right after it happened. I mean it is still a good read but not if you're into long stories. I HAVE to have a long story. This just sorta caught my eye.
I bought this on my kindle as a freebie and enjoyed it so much that I bought the remaining 5 Babet/Prosper Lunch Hour Novellas. I really enjoy how Judith Post writes. I will be reading her other novels and novellas in the near future.

Got a bit lost in all the characters. Seemed like a lot going on in a short read. Would have read better being more fleshed out, but still enjoyed it.
This is considered a "lunchtime read." It was only about 25 pages, but really quite good.

An interesting story that is worth reading.
