Tassina, a beautiful woman much older than she appears to be, is labouring under a curse which is the result of a falling-out with Mama Sauveterre. Mama is a sweet little old lady who, along with a motley assortment of friends, runs a shop selling all sorts of magical and sorta magical bric-a-brac. When Tassina turns to black magic in an attempt to blackmail Mama into lifting the curse, it goes wrong, and life becomes very complicated for everyone.
The writing is very readable throughout with few editing errors. There’s good characters, a thumping plot, and some splendid comic moments to enjoy.
Expect a few sexy bits and some death and violence.
