Hands down best books I've read in a while! I know there are mixed reviews and you will probly either love it or hate it but I think the plot is great, the characters have depth and even though I love romance fantasy, I appreciate that love is NOT in the least bit the focal point of this series.

12 Books You'll Want to Read in One Sitting
I'm a sucker for Magical Realism, and Sarah Addison Allen is one of its best contemporary purveyors. Check out her 1st novel, about two Southern sisters. Sure, there are shades of PRACTICAL MAGIC at hand, but Allen weaves her own deft web. When you're through, you'll be hungry for more. Don't worry; there are 3 others. Please wish Allen well as she's recovering from breast cancer. Her 4th book, LOST LAKE, is due out in 2013.
