Paranormal Romance
It’s not easy being life’s own personal joke, but Josette Landry has made an unstable peace with the beast. Life will continue to throw every bad thing it has at her, and she will continue to not put her head in an oven. But that’s okay. That which doesn’t kill her will just require a few hours of mental insanity. Completely down on her luck, Josette takes a job with a local paranormal group trying to get their own cable show as a photographer and camerawoman. Yeah, they’re even crazier than she is. The only paranormal thing she believes in is the miracle that keeps her rusted out hoopty running. But when her group accidentally releases something truly evil into the world, they are forced to call in reinforcement. From the moment Josette meets Cadegan, she knows something about him isn’t quite right. And it’s not just because she can’t even begin to pronounce his last name: Maboddimun. Mysterious and armed with lethal sarcasm, he seems a lot older than his apparent age… Centuries ago, Cadegan sold his soul for vengeance against the betrayer who cursed him. Forced against his will to do good, he hates everything in life. All he wants is a way out. But for the damned there is only eternal suffering. And yet there is something about Josette that intrigues him as much as it irritates and frustrates him. Something he can’t seem to fight, and the last time he felt this way about a woman, it cost him his soul. He knows he has to stay away from her, but the evil her friends unleashed is hellbent on consuming her soul. Something he cannot allow. If one more innocent is taken, he will be sent back to an unimaginable prison that makes his current hell look like paradise. But how can he keep her safe when his being with her is the greatest threat of all?

Jo is from one of our favourite psychic families, yet her life is falling apart around her. While taking any opportunity to earn some money and get her life back on track she gets thrown into Avalon.

Cadegan has been stuck in Avalon for centuries, all alone and is kind of mad. Until Jo falls into Avalon and he’s forced to communicate with a human.

Jo takes a job to record what happens in a haunted houses, while in the haunted house she falls through a mirror into the hell realm of Avalon. Devoid of colour, fraught with danger, and of course the handsome Cadegan jumped in to save her life.

After discovering that Jo shouldn’t be there they began the quest to return her to the human realm. To get her home they’re sent on a quest to gather particular items to get a key to leave. Unfortunately, they’re swapped bodies to make the quest that much harder making for some hilarious moments along the way.

At the time of reading this I was going through a lot of similar emotions, making it so much easier to relate to Jo. Although the gentleman in all his manly displays of warrior strength and aptitude wasn’t quite so manly and warrior like when he was swapped into Jo’s body.

Having the quest given to them in the form of riddles gave us not just a strange world to enjoy, but a puzzle to figure out as we go!

Trying to solve the riddles along with them kept me captivated throughout, yet it ended in a way that left me dissappointed.
