When teen witch Ivy MacTavish changes a lizard into her date for a Halloween dance, everything turns to chaos. And when no one is powerful enough to transform him back except Ivy, it sparks the rumor: Like father, like daughter. Ivy has heard it all before – that her father, who left when she was seven – was involved with the darkest of magic.
Making the rumors worse, someone uses an evil spell book to bring back two of history’s most nefarious killers. Ivy’s got a simple plan to set things right: find the real dark spell caster, steal the book, and reverse the spell. No problem! But she’ll have to deal with something more dangerous than murderous spirits that want her and her friends dead: the school’s resident bad boy and hotter-than-brimstone demon, Nick Marcelli. Nick’s offering Ivy more than his help with recovering the missing book – he’s offering her a way to ditch her scaly reputation as a lizard-lover. Demons are about as hard to handle as black magic, and as Ivy soon discovers, it’s going to take more than a lot of luck and a little charm if she wants to survive long enough to clear her status as a dark witch, get a warm-blooded boyfriend, and have her former date back to eating meal worms before the week’s end.

After crying my heart out for my corrupted memory card, I finally bought a new one. I immediately installed the e-books I was supposed to read last month and voila, my first victim was The Book Of Lost Souls by Michelle Muto. I read some parts of this beautiful book before my SD card got corrupted so I had a peek of what the book is about. It was one of the reasons why I cried for my poor card. I hated being interrupted while reading a book like this. It was one of the books that you can’t really stop reading until you finish it.
What I loved about The Book Of Lost Souls was the story. Even if it has all those supernatural beings going on, it did not have that common story to go with it. It did not focused on the vampire-werewolf rivalry which was everywhere now after Edward’s debut in the Twilight series. It did not show the fear of humans for the supernaturals, instead, in this book, the humans and the Kindreds, as they were called, coexist with each other peacefully. But I love Nick Marcelli above all.
