message 8: by Heather (new)

Heather T (horrorvacui000) Hey, Sans, how was Ghostland?


message 9: by Lisarenee (new)

Lisarenee | 7659 comments Thanks Sans & Lacy. I'll add them soon.


message 10: by Sans (new)

Sans Hi Heather,

I haven't finished it yet but it's pretty good so far. I skimmed ahead (as I always do) and the demon/angel/God dogma is quite interesting. Plus, Zurael is pretty damn hot.

Ghostland is vaguely reminiscent of the Angel Sanctuary, Vol. 1 by Kaori Yuki series by Yuki Kaori for some reason. I think it's the non-traditional view of angels and demons that's tickling that reminder key for me. I'll be sure to post more about the book when I finish it.


message 11: by Heather (new)

Heather T (horrorvacui000) It was in a cover contest for best cover. Otherwise, I never would have noticed it.


message 12: by Heather (new)

Heather T (horrorvacui000) Spider's Bite by Jennifer Esteep takes place on the border between NC, TN, and VA. I'm not sure which one it technically counts for, but the author says it's where all the states meet.

Shay- What was horrible about A Nose For Justice? I haven't read it yet but was going to. I liked the Mrs. Murphy books in the beginning and then they got lousy towards the end so I'm wondering if this is similar to those. Thanks for your input! :)-save me a lousy read!

It was about as preachy as "Cat of the Century"- the last book in the Mrs. Murphy trilogy. It's like the author grew into a middle aged grump.


message 35: by Shay (new)

Shay | 923 comments Lisarenee wrote: "Shay did all the books in Carole Nelson Douglas' series Midnight Louie take place in Nevada?"

I think some of them have characters visiting different places or having flashbacks to different places. But, most of the book is set in Las Vegas.

Shay | 923 comments Rhode Island: The Witches of Eastwick. There's a sequel to this, The Widows of Eastwick, but I don't actually have it in my hands so I'm not sure if it's also set in RI.

Sashana OMG!! I didn't know The Witches of Eastwick was a book! I almost cried when the show got cancelled.


Ashley ~twisted_illusions~ (twisted_illusions) | 67 comments It really upset me when ABC canceled The Witches of Eastwick and then they canceled The Gates after it was finally getting good.

Sashana I didn't watch The Gates, but I really wish that they had (at least) finished the first season of The Witches of Eastwick. It was getting sooo good!

I didn't know it was a TV show. Was that recent? The movie version had Cher, Michelle Pfieffer, and Susan Sarandon as the witches and Jack Nicholson as the Devil.

There was a show last year, but unfortunately it didn't last long. I'm sure you can find an episode online if you search hard enough.
