No Rest for the Wicked
I wanted to share this again, because I suspect it will soon be made into video. Read it and see why.
This wonderful book starts out with like a western, with beautiful imagery and descriptions that make you feel as if you are there. After reading the first scene I was hooked.
The reader knows right here what kind of person Vi is. She's smart, surly, secretive, with a good heart and fluid morals. And, she likes her drinks. Already my kind of woman. I knew I was in for a fun read and I was right. But I did not foresee the twists and turns and tugs of the heart that were coming. Or the look at the past that made Vi the way she is, or how she gained her talents. Or how those talents would be used against her.
After this brief encounter with a ghost, that goes poorly but she makes end well, Vi is off on another adventure dealing with a con she had done years ago. One that she had thought was concluded satisfactorily, but the spirits aren't going to let her get away with clean. What I really liked about this book was the heart and hijinks that started with the opening scene and continued the entire book. Vi and her entire entourage of lost souls come together with all their problems and quirks to help the big hearted woman. Which is only fair really after she helped each of them out of their own predicaments.
