My name is Kara Radcliff and I’m a witch. Not the pointy hat and black cat kind that you see on Halloween, but a true spell casting, sneaker wearing, party loving, kick-ass witch.

Until two weeks ago, that is all I was and all I ever wanted to be. My expectations in life didn’t soar higher than graduating college and finding a decent job that would help pay off my mounting

5 fecking awesome stars!!!
I freaking loved this story!!! OMG there were times where I literally laughed out loud while reading. I love the characters that Shell has created as well as the paranormal world in this book

Kara Radcliffe is a young, sexy, smart-ass AND ultra bad-ass witch. She is unique, witty, hilarious and a total ball-buster. I absolutely loved her, so much so that I wanted to be her best friend!

Kara is thrown into a world-wind of responsibility when she soon rises in rank to

This is a great entertaining read that keeps you hooked. The story line is really cool and I like that concept tremendously. I know this is a series but I really wished the first one would have been a little bit longer. Overall the flow of the book is very good though that doesn't feel too dragged out or like you are being rushed through it.

Kara, the main character is a little bit over the top for me. She seems a little unhinged and has quite the temper. I wish her character was a little bit
Kara is picked to compete to become an associate, the problem is she doesn't really want that. But, she's going to do her best when the time comes just because she can. However, she has someone taking an interest in her that she doesn't understand, and when things start getting a little crazy she just may realize that life is not always as it seems.

This book was a great start to this series, and I really loved the heroine a whole lot. She had spirit, strength, and was funny as well. I also

So many editing errors!

Incomplete sentences. Sentences with extra words, spelling errors. They all took me out of the story. Still, what I got of it was ok. Hopefully the next will have less errors.

Girl needs an editor bad!

I liked the overall story, and the characters so far seem pretty interesting, however , I could not get over all the errors in grammar, word placement, and just wrong words in general. Good thing my brain is good at supplying what sentences should say.

I enjoyed it, I do feel there was a fair few spelling mistakes and the story just kind of stops and starts without much explanation of the world and so forth.

Arc received for an honest review.

This is the first book I have read by this author and I was really impressed.

I'm not a huge fan of paranormal but after reading the blurb for this, I found myself really wanting to read the story and it didn't disappoint.

This is quite a short read at 167 pages but a lot is packed in to those 167 pages and I found myself unable to put the book down.

A really enjoyable, well written story and the next instalment is one of my most anticipated upcoming reads...

Dude, this is a FANTASTIC new series and I am DYING for book two! Way to kill me with suspense on that ending. And though it's not a real cliff hanger, there's definitely a whole lot left to want :) Cuz you know, you gotta wait for the big bads to come to town :) And this is a great story. A girl, who knows she's a witch, and knows about the supernatural starts out competing for a spot in the coveted governing agency. Everyone wants to work for them. And when there's a spot open and she's ...more

This is the first in a new series by C. Shell and I'll tell you right now, I'm really looking forward to the rest of what is on offer.
You get that Kara is a witch from the blurb and that there's an invitation to compete to be an Associate. There are vampires, shifters, mage and fae all overseen by a Ruler from each race and Associates under them, to protect against the worst of the worst.
Two weeks of trials and the Rulers and other Associates have made their ruling. That is overruled by a Seer,

'Unholy Creations (Associates Series Book 1)'
by C. Shell
4 1/2 Fangs

I received this book from the author and from 'Paranormal Romance and Authors That Rock'. This is my honest review.

'Unholy Creations' is a short novella by C. Shell. This book is not a standalone but intended to be part of a series.

There are only four associates to the Alphas and Rulers of North America. One was recently killed, so the position is open. Invitation letters are sent to only the most qualified paranormals to test

C. Shell has got me hooked real good on her Associates Series!

There is so much non-stop action packed epicness and what looks to be a prettt hot and smoking love triangle between a Witch, Alpha Wolf, and Vampire! Sizzling right off the pages. All i have to say about that, is to tell you my favorite part... Dream Walking to watch the Big Bad Alpha Wolf shower! Whooo! HOT!

I love Kara's take no crap attitude, fiesty-ness, and especially her very non-filter. She absolutely cracks me up.

Being an Associate is an honor, one Kara doesn't really want, but that doesn't mean she's just gonna cry uncle just to get out of the compitions for becoming the next associate. She's not a quitter, but it's tough and when she catches the attention of the Werewolf Ruler things start to get crazier for her. And when she starts using powers she's never had her life will never be the same again.

Kara is all sass and smartass. She says thing without thinking and it makes for some funny

This is my first experience with C. Shell's work and I have to say I'm not disappointed!

This book centers around Kara, a witch attending PAS (a paranormal university). Kara is part of a very select group that has been selected the compete for the position of Associate, which is basically a police officer of the paranormal world. During an exercise she runs into Derick Kerns, the Ruler Alpha of the Weres, and the sparks of attraction are visible to everyone! Derick invites her to a party and

This is a quite exciting read, but it seems to be a serial rather than a series.

Kara has been invited to compete for the vacant spot among the Associates. Three associates work along side the four rulers to keep the paranormal world hidden and the humans safe. She will be one of several from the PAS university .Only the best of the paranormal will compete. Kara is a witch from a very powerful bloodline.
At the end of the last day Kara is invited to join Derick, Alpha wolf shifter at the night

The author sent me a copy of this book to beta read, and my biggest complaint about the whole thing was that it was over too quickly. C Shell has done a wonderful job creating a world where magical creatures thrive and interact, but I want more!!! I loved Kara, her ability to kick butt, and her fetish for sparkly shoes. I loved the building adventure and mystery that will undoubtedly unfold over more stories. And I especially loved her two alpha hotties, Derick and Cam, and I cannot wait to see ...more

Definitely loved this. I felt like the story ended too soon lol. But I get that the cliffy is supposed to keep us guessing as to what is next. Can't wait for the next installment.

Keep up the awesome writing. ^^

This book has been a blast to write. Kara's world is dangerous, sexy, and unexpected. I hope you enjoy reading this as much as I enjoyed creating it.
