The Scent of Shadows: Cool idea

Vicki Pettersson has come up with a cool and original idea for the paranormal genre: an on-going battle between good and evil that corresponds to the signs of the zodiac.

I loved the way that Pettersson used comic books to keep the history of the conflict and she really did a fantastic job portraying kids in a comic book shop.

The main character in the Zodiac series is the only fly in the ointment. Joanna Archer just seems to be a bit inconsistent. I made it through the book because I wanted to see how Pettersson would develop Joanna, and so far it is bearable. However, I am worried that this will turn into another paranormal romance series with the romance overshadowing the plot; Joanna’s mindset seems to be pointing that way.

During a 12 month tour of Iraq, he spent well over $1000 on books and found sanity in the process. John lives in Utah and works slavishly to prepare soldiers to serve their country with the honor and distinction that Sturm Brightblade or Arithon s’Ffalenn would be proud of.
