Take a bite out of evil.

The circus came to Halfway, and they brought the weird.

When clowns, vampires, and corpses start piling up in town, Carlie has to break away from her boyfriend, Wulfric, to bring her witchy skills to the table- or grill, as the case may be.

When the body of a young woman washes up in the lake, it unleashes a spiral of mystery that will bring Carlie, Gran, and Wulfric into a storm of magical warfare.

Spells will fly. Curses will rain. Amidst it all, Carlie will make waffles, protect her town, and find out if a man from the distant past can join her in happy ever after.

With love and honor at stake, Carlie has no peer.

Halfway Bitten is the thrilling sequel to Halfway Dead and I loved it. Although I liked the first book for sure I had my reservations with it so I'm really happy to say that I thought this one was better. It was really great and I could hardly stop reading it.

I think part of what made this book better for me than the first book was that I was already familiar with the characters. And I also the writing has improved a lot also (though I thought the writing was already excellent with book #1). 

Halfway Bitten features the characters we got to know and love from the first book. Carlie, Wulfric, Gran and some others. This time the mystery involves werepanthers, vampires, dead bodies and even clowns. And of course there a big amount of magic.

I loved the mystery of the circus that came to town and how Carlie and the others once again had to try to figure everything out. There's also romance involved between Carlie and Wulfric, who is her boyfriend now. The end, though, kind of freaked me out and maybe broke my heart a bit.

Overall, Halfway Bitten by Terry Maggert ended up making me want and need more of this world. Especially with an ending like that. Carlie is quickly growing into one of my favorite heroines ever!

About the Author:

       Website | Facebook | Twitter | Goodreads

Born in 1968, I discovered fishing shortly after walking, a boon, considering I lived in South Florida. After a brief move to Kentucky, my family trekked back to the Sunshine State. I had the good fortune to attend high school in idyllic upstate New York, where I learned about a mythical substance known as "Seasons". After two or three failed attempts at college, I bought a bar. That was fun because I love beer, but, then, I eventually met someone smarter than me (a common event), and, in this case, she married me and convinced me to go back to school--which I did, with enthusiasm. I earned a Master's Degree in History and rediscovered my love for writing. My novels explore dark fantasy, immortality, and the nature of love as we know it. I live near Nashville, Tennessee, with the aforementioned wife, son, and herd, and, when I'm not writing, I teach history, grow wildly enthusiastic tomato plants, and restore my 1967 Mustang.
