Summary

They call me an abomination. A mutant. A curse on their kind. I don't let it bother me. Much.

My name is Holly James, and what they say is true. I'm a freak of nature - a null. My mere presence saps the magic from others, rendering them powerless. That's why they hate me. But here's the kicker: I've found a way to profit from my lack of mojo.

Whether it's acting as a mystical wet blanket in a dispute between pyromancers or keeping hormonal shifters from changing during a sweet 16 party, I provide a highly specialized service. For a hefty fee.

When a young witch turns up dead, clutching an amulet cursed with black magic, my estranged grandfather asks for my help. In return for nullifying the necklace, Gramps promises to find my missing mother - a witch who vanished after my birth. Of course there's a catch. He wants me to assist Cade McAllister, the arrogant sorcerer in charge of investigating the case.

Cade resents my existence, let alone my attempts to help. Still, I'll do whatever it takes to find my mom. For my own peace of mind I have to know what happened to her, and I won't allow anything to get in my way.

Great start to a series. where's book two???

I found the story interesting and the character development good. I did not much care for the narrator. Although she did a good job with Holly, the main character voice, I didn't like when she did the other voices. There wasn't much to distinguish different females and her portrayal of the main male character was just irritating. I know he is tough and gruff but he was totally unlikeable based on the voice alone. Again, his voice was too similar to all the male voices minus the ones with accents.

Don't waste the money or time

For once I can't blame Hollie Jackson for the monotone narration. Male interest is a macho idiot so he's a perfect match for the lame heroine.

A strong B

An old story line made new. I like that this null is not well loved and a fighter.

colorless style

She reads in a matter of fact way, so imagine the teacher (Ben Stein) frm Ferris Bueller reading a steamy sex scene & that's how she narrates. 1 point in her favor, she does try 2 change up her voice 4 the various characters.
