    3.5 to 4 Stars Seriously having fun with all of these great books I'm finding! I love this genre and having something a bit different than the norm and what I usually read has been a breath of fresh air. I do think however I read these out of order. I believe this is a spin off from another series since some things weren't explained but rather had me feeling they had been explained in previous books somewhere else. That's okay though, I didn't feel too lost, just wish there would have been a bit 3.5 to 4 Stars Seriously having fun with all of these great books I'm finding!

    This is an enjoyable read, the magic system was very well-crafted and the characters interesting. That being said, this is very much a first book in a series. The plot is barely there and only just starts getting anywhere at 75%. There isn't a larger arc here, it's all just laying the groundwork for the next book. I admit I'll be reading the next book, but that doesn't change the fact that this was unsatisfying and frustrating.

    First off this is not the first book in the series. It is really the 5th book in this series. I couldn’t understand why there were so many references to previous events in this book. I finally looked up the author and found the other set of books. At that point I stopped reading this book. With so many references to the previous books it didn’t made sense to continue. Too bad because the book was interesting.

    Fizzled I found this to be slow-moving and it had minimal resolution; though the character does move fast on the romance side for a bit--something I always dislike. There is a fair bit of "he's so hot" dialogue and needing to be rescued damsel-ing which is always lackluster IMO. However, my biggest complaint is the MC's inability to put the pieces together. For someone who supposedly sees things others can't, she does a bad job of actually living up to it. Hence the fizzler of an ending.

    A decent introduction, but so not a book There is no plot. There's a smidge of world building, a hint of a mystery, a hot guy, and a weird ghost. Hot guy does amazing things for no good reason I can understand. Weird ghost remains weird. The MC just drifts along. There is no plot. The "climax" took maybe a page and was resolved in less than a paragraph. This could have been condensed down and put as the start of a real story rather than claiming to be a book.

    Not enough tension All the events should have produced high emotions and tension but didn’t. The romantic tension was not there, the girl didn’t mourn betrayal of her first love, and didn’t establish any real connection with her next romantic interest. As the matter of fact the pain was not heartfelt, infatuation wasn’t engaging - everything was just kind of....blah.

    Realms Apart KU This was a truly great read. Although the concept of the fae as another realm, veil witches and stolen identities are not new, this author spins a good story with panache. Zoe, Autumn and Julia are well spun characters and I particularly liked how the relationship between Zoe and Julia intertwined. I'm looking forward to where the tale takes the reader next and in what direction the series as a whole will travel. Realms Apart KU This was a truly great read.

    Oh why!! Damn those cliffhanger endings. This was really good book - drawn out - but good. It’s a really well written introduction to the world of Cassie. We learn a lot from where she came up to the point where things start to make a turn for he worse. Other than that, not much really happens. I love her new business though - really good side story. No too many characters to get to one in this book either. Overall, an easy read and I really just want a peek at the next book just to see how the Oh why!! Damn those cliffhanger endings.

    Golly! This is the first book in the Cassie Anderson series. It picks up from the Autumn Winter series, read that series first to fully enjoy this one. Spoiler alert! The first Cassie centric book is an exhilarating experience for me. We get to see how she copes with having her own body back, living on her own and trying to earn a living.

    J.S. Malcom takes us back to the world of the veil witches, but this time we get to experience it through Cassie's eyes. When I first went into this, I wasn't sure how I would feel about Cassie as a narrator. She seemed to be a temperamental hothead in the Realm Watchers installments, and I honestly didn't think I'd like her!

When I first went into this, I wasn't sure how I would feel about Cassie as a narrator. She seemed to be a temperamental hothead in the Realm Watchers installments, and I honestly didn't think I'd like her! Cassie is actually a very sympathetic character, and reading her descriptions of past events and following her thought processes went a long way toward explaining her actions and personality. About 15 pages in and my feelings did a 180. Cassie has moved out of her mother's home and is living in a witches only apartment building called the Cauldron. It's like a frat/sorority house, just with a bunch of party-throwing witches. To pay the rent, Cassie has put her supernatural bloodhound abilities to lucrative use by hiring herself out as a 'supernatural cleaner.' In other words, she's a ghost buster. The segments of ghost cleaning were some of my favorite parts of the book. I'm not going to spoil anything, but all of the hauntings are by turns funny, sad, bizarre, and clever. The ghost haunting the new age lady is my favorite specter. The focus of the story is on a series of 'disappearances' that aren't really disappearances. At random, children's personalities alter to the point that they become completely different people, and Richmond's newspapers and local news channels are filled with the interviews of horrified parents who swear up and down that their child is no longer actually their child. Given her history, Cassie is intrigued by the story, and becomes more determined to solve the mystery after she has a strange experience of crossing through the veil into what seems to be another dimension and encountering a terrified young girl being chased by a group of elvish men on horseback. After all, Cassie's a veil witch, so this extra-dimensional weirdness should be right up her alley. Realms of Ghosts and Magic is a treat, and readers who may be skeptical of spin-off series can just drop those expectations. This sister series (yeah, bad pun I know but I can't help myself) doesn't piggyback on Autumn's original trilogy, it continues to build the fascinating world peopled by witches, vampires, and other supernatural creatures. Cassie isn't Autumn 2.0, her own distinct voice comes through loud and clear, and you can't help but be pulled along for the ride.

From poltergeists to vampires, she’s dealt with it all, so she opens up a modern-day ghostbusting service that leads to some pretty hilarious and inventive hauntings. As if her life isn’t busy enough with ghost removals and a part-time job at a pretty awesome supernatural bookstore, Cassie accidentally stumbles across the faerie realm and encounters a girl who has recently gone missing. At about the same time, she comes across a Book of Shadows that only opens for her, and she meets a mysterious, sexy mage. Life starts to get pretty exciting from there. With her supernatural cleaning service in full swing, a new love interest on the horizon, and a missing person’s case that’s just itching to be solved, Cassie has her hands full, but she juggles everything with a witty sense of humor and a spunk that is both refreshing and suspenseful. On personal note, this book series is tied to another J. S. Malcom series, where Cassie is introduced as the protagonist’s sister. From the reviews that I read, I think I did myself a great service by reading this book first. Cassie, who apparently came off as a little bratty and standoffish in The Realm Watchers series, is a breath of fresh air. She’s smart, witty, and rational. I love the way she works through issues and isn’t so emotionally inept that she comes off as needy or rash. Overall, this book is spectacularly written. The author, clearly a man — as I have found that men often write women with a fun, tough-as-nails, yet slightly imprecise edge — does a wonderful job of building suspense while still creating a fun, imaginative world that I loved getting lost in!

    Now we finally get to hear about Cassie, Autumn's sister from the Realm Watchers series. I really like Autumn and having read all 4 (currently) books in her series I got to see Cassie through her sister's eyes. It's been really interesting to see their relationship develop but I definitely formed an idea of Cassie so it was great to be in Cassie's mind. My impressions of her have definitely changed now that I know more about her and I really enjoy seeing her build a new life for herself.

This book is completely different from her sister's series, so don't think you'll be retreading over old territory. There is some fresh, exciting stuff going on here. I also found parts of this book to be laugh out loud funny. It's a great starter to a new series and you don't have to start out reading her sister's series first to get into this one. A great new urban fantasy series with plenty of action, some contemplation and new adventures. I can't wait to read the next one!

    Nice to see Cassie getting her own series. It is interesting to see how Cassie tries to adjust to life as being adult and trying to make it on her own after 15 years living in someone else's mind. She's being practical in her sideline business of taking out the "supernatural trash" which leads to some funny incidents.

Cassie is just getting ready to tackle the problem of the "changelings" and these unexpected folds in the dimensions. She hasn't run into that much danger so far. She definitely is not going from one death-defying event after another. I like how it develops slowly. You get to know Cassie better and some side characters who are interesting and funny.

    Nice UF Realms of Ghosts and Magic Fae Witch Chronicles is a fast, paced mystery packed, urban fantasy full of suspense and seasoned with humor. A veil witch, Cassie decides to use her magic to start a supernatural cleanup business sending ghosts across the veil. Secret organizations and betrayals really spice things up before leaving a bit of a cliff hanger. The characters are enjoyable and interesting in an intriguing plot that twists unexpectedly. I will be reading more from this author!

    Oh what a great story. This is my first book by J.S. Malcolm and I have to say I am impressed. The story is extremely well written and the characters are greatly developed. Cassie is a feisty, strong, smart, caring, and amazing young lady. She has been through a lot in her young life and she comes out stronger for it. The cast of characters are amazing and have some great humor. The story is really amazing because it just transports you to a whole new world.

    I ended up liking this story quite a bit and will soon go to the next one, I hope it's out already. I liked the main character, the story was interesting and original, and the book was well edited. I did downgrade it to 4 stars due to the fairly major cliff hanger at the end. I've heard authors say that they do this to build anticipation and suspense. To me it looks like a blatant money grab, they want you to buy another book. Trust me, if the story is good enough, I'll go on to the next book. T I ended up liking this story quite a bit and will soon go to the next one, I hope it's out already.

    Good start to series Well I walked into the middle here, having not read the Realms series, but honestly was able to follow well enough, though now I wish I had read them first. However, this book stood alone just fine and is a great beginning to a series. I love the main character; she's well developed and likable, and the story is well plotted. The concept of veil witch is an interesting one, and I'll be very interested in the next book in the series.

    Should definitely be read after reading the Veil Witch series or it may be confusing. I love that Cassie is so awkward, strong, obnoxious, and caring. I wish Autumn, her sister, had a little more of a part in the storyline-only because she had such a huge part to play in getting Cassie to where she is now... (trying not to throw in spoilers). Fantastic, engaging, and fun! Cant wait to read more.

    Cassie is a veil witch, who is just coming into her powers. What she doesn't know could get her killed and who she knows can get her in trouble. But, some one wants Cassie to know the truth before she gets in over her head and loses everything. A paranormal mystery, that has yet to reveal all its secrets.

    Loving Cassie's story. When I got to the end I couldn't believe it. The story goes by quickly. Luckily the next book is already available. I'm looking forward to learning more about Cassie's abilities, the Fae realm, and what's going on with Julia, the BFF. Goodness, that girl has been through so much already. Not to worry, Cassie's on the case. Loving Cassie's story. When I got to the end I couldn't believe it. The story goes by quickly. Luckily the next book is already available.

    A great combination of mystery and magic So I come in o this series, not having read the one about Cassie’s sister, Autumn. I d feel like I’m missing some things but not enough to be confused. That being said., I loved this book. Cassie is a great character that is complex and real. The story and intrigue is just starting so there are a lot of questions left to be answered.
