Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Beautiful."

    Halfway Bitten is another beautiful book by Terry Maggert. As in the first installment, Halfway Dead, the writing is lyrical and the characters are wonderful.

    Maggert must believe, like many other folks, that the circus is as creepy as it is fascinating. Plus, there's clowns. In this novel, the circus is a front for a group of travelling vampires who are terrorizing all other vampires in Eastern North America and Canada. The right to survive becomes a competition; and Carley, Gran, and Wulfric get caught up in it.

    I absolutely love the introduction of ghosts in this novel. Ghosts of the towns previous witches live on in "spirit." They are able to assist, teach, mentor, or just socialize with living witches as long as their spirits are in tact.

    Once again, the audiobook version is superb. Erin Spencer perfectly captures Carly's and Gran's beautiful natures and the author's lyrical writing.

    Story
    "Halfway Bitten takes it all the way!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I really enjoyed this second book in the "Halfway Witchy" series. I would definitely recommend it to those who enjoy reading about the supernatural with a twist of humor, sarcasm, and sincerity. Maggert has created a world and characters that come to life through Spencer's performance, and I cannot wait to "read" the next installment.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I really enjoyed the development of the main character, Carlie McEwan, and her Gran. I feel that the relationships between Carlie and the other characters are developing naturally and there is room for them to grow in future books. I also liked that the story was engaging and made me laugh out loud, something many supernatural stories today don't accomplish.


    Have you listened to any of Erin Spencer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is the first time that I have listened to a performance by Erin Spencer, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. She brings Carlie to life as a young witch, and her other characters are sincere and believable. I appreciated her talent in differentiating among the variety of characters presented in the book.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I found this book really engaging. I was interested in finding out what would happen with the characters and stories, and couldn't wait to learn what was happening in Halfway. Maggert's storytelling and Spencer's performance made me laugh, giggle, snort, and roll my eyes--all things that I appreciate in an audiobook (or any book for that matter).

    "Wow! Beautifully written and performed!"

    I thoroughly enjoyed the Halfway, Carlie, and the crew of memorable characters in first book in this series, but this one just blew me away and delved deeper into Halfway and why it is the place I want to live. I won't go into a plot synopsis, no spoilers here, but if you enjoy magic, sass, a little mayhem, love, heartbreak, and of course, waffles, this is the story for you. The author has a sarcastic wit and sass that the narrator voices impeccably, and she manages to differentiate the characters without anything over the top, something I appreciate in audio books. There is most definitely an interesting and engaging mystery plot line here, a magical circus, vampires and clowns *shiver*, but I was really drawn in by the characters and their interactions on this one. I love a strong female lead and this has two, as well as a lovable librarian with a strength all his own (Brendan is a favorite for me). While listening I was engrossed, going through every moment with them, but when I had to pause (an inevitability with two small children running around me) I found myself reflecting on the spirit and humanity of the characters and what really defines us as good, bad, or something in the middle. I was definitely not expecting these thoughts from paranormal mystery type book, but it made it all the more enjoyable and made me do a double listen at a few parts. The ending scenes were beautifully heartbreaking and I am eagerly awaiting book 3 in this series. Overall, I am so happy I gave this a listen and will defintely come back to it again and again.
