When the beautiful and precocious sisters Sally and Gillian Owens are orphaned at a young age, they are taken to a small Massachusetts town to be raised by their eccentric aunts, who happen to dwell in the darkest, eeriest house in town. As they become more aware of their aunts' mysterious and sometimes frightening powers - and as their own powers begin to surface - the sisters grow determined to escape their strange upbringing by blending into "normal" society.

so I finally got the book after seeing the movie a dozen times and I expected the book to be better. usually when a book gets turned into a movie, they screw up the book so badly I can't we even watch the whole movie. well with this book, the movie actually improved the story. I was disappointed in not only the writing quality but also the performance. this reads like a first novel published and is performed like the reader has no clue what they are doing. definitely not worth wasting a credit or the time. you get better characters and story line from the movie.

Carivel was born female, but she has been secretly living as a boy for years in her adoptive village of Draebard. The last thing she needs is to fall for not one, but two unattainable men—a fierce warrior and a reluctant wolf-shifter with a horrific past. Now, the Alyrion Empire is poised to invade, and Carivel must choose whether to keep her secret or reveal it—not only to the men she loves, but also to the powerful female ruler whose army could help protect Draebard during the coming war.

so the story is ok, the narrator is good. but oh my gawd does the writer have an obsession with sperm. It completely ruins the sex scenes. unless you like hearing about cum guzzling in every single sex scene. it takes so much away from everything else. disgusting!

Robert Baxter once reveled in the intoxicating delights of Atopia - the man-made island where humans lose themselves in a world of boundless virtual realities. Now, Bob has returned to immerse himself in this mind-altering, consciousness-sharing refuge from the eroding Earth. But something is very wrong. Bob feels a tidal wave of doom cresting above the pleasure dome that is Atopia. As alternate universes perish, the salvation of all he loves - and all that exists - rests with Bob alone.
