I write, read and review, I blog frequently and love anything to do with books and writing, including editing. I am a Book Nerd and I wear that badge with pride. http://coffee2words.wordpress.com
The guild of immortal women reads like the first book in a series or trilogy.
I liked a lot of the characters, Abbey, Matt, Ruth and Boo were some of my favorites.
Robert and The Doctor were interesting characters too, not that I can say I liked them. But they kept me guessing.
The book was not what I'd expected, and that's probably a good thing, because I think the cover lends itself to a very traditional fantasy story, where as this story has loads of modern ties, magical ties and even a small sprinkle of humour.
The humour wasn't as pronounced as the book synopsis makes out, a fair number of the jokes were in poor taste or repeated too frequently to be funny after the first time.
I got distracted by the paragraph breaks and lack of paragraph breaks littered throughout the book. Minor things really, but they do make it harder for the reader to enjoy the story.
The ending felt like it was purposely left open for another book, but there's nothing forecast on Goodreads about another book. It just leaves too much unsaid and unfinished as far as I'm concerned.
