Sum It Up!  What a great book! 

A girl's got to do what a girl's got to do....
Being a witch doesn't pay the bills, but Persephone Alcmedi gets by between reading Tarot cards, writing her syndicated newspaper column, and kenneling werewolves in the basement when the moon is full -- even if witches aren't supposed to mingle with wolves. She really reaches the end of her leash, though, when her grandmother gets kicked out of the nursing home and Seph finds herself in the doghouse about some things she's written. Then her werewolf friend Lorrie is murdered...and the high priestess of an important coven offers Seph big money to destroy the killer, a powerful vampire named Goliath Kline. Seph is a tough girl, but this time she bites off more than she can chew. She needs a little help from her friends -- werewolf friends. One of those friends, Johnny, the motorcycle-riding lead singer for the techno-metal-Goth band Lycanthropia, has a crush on her. And while Seph has always been on edge around this 6'2" leather-clad hunk, she's starting to realize that although their attraction may be dangerous, nothing could be as lethal as the showdown that awaits them.

What a great book! Vicious Circle was my first Linda Robertson book, and will not be my last! Persephone is a great heroine with depth and backbone, but still has warmth and kindness. She ends up being the kind of heroine I love! She's not all in your face bad-ass and she's not all damsel in distress.....loved her! Her Nana and little Beverly were great supporting characters you could relate too as well! All the supporting characters were.

It's rare in a book to like the villain and sometimes think the hero might be a villain. Johnny is an alpha werewolf who is sexy, funny, and willing to do anything to save the day...sometimes even things that make you question whether he is good or bad. He is a complex hero, has a lot to offer, and even more to sort out in his life! It will be fun seeing if he can fully deal with all he can become. And as for the villain, Menessos, you want to hate him, but there is something there that calls to the fixer and healer in us all. I highly recommend this series and am eager to begin the next book to see what happens to some of my new favorite witches, werewolves, and vampires! Until the next review....
