Publisher's Summary

Detective Paige Whiskey comes from a long line of witches. They may not all be the most powerful, but they are outspoken and supportive of their community. She alone has no gifts. She can't summon fire, can't read minds. She knows the arcane. She's studied it. That, along with her connection to the Whiskey Witches, lands her some pretty strange cases.

Like the sacrificial murders of St. Francisville, Louisiana. There's a killer on the loose, choosing people in a vain attempt to raise a demon. Not just any demon, though. A man born long ago, made a demon in order to protect the Gate to Hell.

Together with demon hunter, Dexx Colt, her kitchen-witch grandmother, and her paranormal investigator brother-in-law, they unravel a conspiracy far bigger than a few simple murders, and re-discover Paige's gift.

She's a demon summoner and she's key to the killer's plan.

    "Great read!"

    urban-fantasy, demon-hunter, demons, ghosts, witches, serial-killer, family-dynamics, law-enforcement, paranormal

    Very different from other urban fantasy/demon hunter books I've read. Not a good or bad thing, but certainly fascinating. The publisher's blurb gives a good intro, but there is so much more. There is a pervasive sense of urgency, snarky comments, convoluted family involvements, and a Louisiana police chief plus an FBI agent who have an inkling about the paranormal. The characters certainly are and are very well developed. It's really, REALLY, worth the money to read it.
    But I was happy to get it as Whispersync on the cheap. Kalinda Little adds a lot to the emotional tones of the characters and the tale itself.

    "Great witchy adventure"
    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. The main character has amazing revelations thrust upon her and has to learn to deal with it. Through it all her friend is by her side and he makes for great romantic tension. Wicked demons and even more wicked angels complicate her already complicated life. Wonderful narration and world building and a solid story made me immediately pick up the next book already. I didn't want the story to end. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

    Story
    "Excellent !! Loved It!!"
    Would you listen to Whiskey Witches - Episodes 1-4 again? Why?

    Yes, I just love the story and all the action.


    What other book might you compare Whiskey Witches - Episodes 1-4 to and why?

    I cannot think of any books in league with the Whiskey Witch book series. They are non-stop action and just a great story.


    What does Kalinda Little bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She does great with the different voices of the different characters.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Too Many To List


    Any additional comments?

    Look forward to more of this series on Audiobook

    Story
    "It's like a spinoff of Supernatural TV series"

    Whiskey Witches is pretty fun brain candy! It’s light, humorous, and has a bit of an edge. Paige Whiskey is an entertaining detective. I loved her foul mouth. Totally in keeping with her Whiskey heritage… except she doesn’t have any powers. Well, so she thinks. We quickly learn that nearly all her family is in the know about some necessary memory blocks that were put in place and it looks like those blocks are breaking down. This makes Paige a confused and dangerous individual. There’s going to be some butt-kicking indeed!

    There’s a lot of nods to a popular TV show, Supernatural, in this book but I think folks who haven’t seen the show will enjoy this story nonetheless. Paige is the female version of Dean Winchester and her sidekick and romantic interest, Dexx Colt, is yet another version of Dean Winchester. So, yeah, it was like Dean & Dean working together and eventually sharing some steamy moments.

    I’ll just give you a moment to fully visualize that.

    … And we’re back. There’s plenty of action and then some more action. Most of the book is action. There’s a little character development here and there but for the most part, they walk onto the page fully formed with personal agendas, favorite swear words, and plenty of weapons. I just really had a lot of fun listening to this book.

    Granma Alma Whiskey was a blunt force of wind. I loved her character, especially that name (which I have only encountered once in real life). I really want her backstory. She has been instrumental in getting witches out of the closet and into mainstream military and police work.

    Balinor often had me chuckling out loud. He’s a well spoken polite demon who calls Paige, Peanut. Ha! every time he did that, I laughed a little. Who has the balls to repeatedly call Paige, Peanut? So, yeah, I like Balinor even if I wasn’t sure if he was a good guy or a bad guy for much of the book.

    The strengths of Whiskey Witches are also the weaknesses. There’s so much action that there’s hardly a break for something deeper, like some character development. The parallels with Supernatural (being a Hunter, Colt + Paige = Dean Winchester, demons, angels, nephilim! oh, my!) make the story line a bit predictable. Still, with that I give this a solid 4/5 stars based on entertainment alone.

    The Narration: Kalinda Little was a perfect fit for Paige Whiskey. She sounded just as butt-kicking charming as I expected Paige would. Little obviously brought her enthusiasm for this story to the table; she was great with all the action scenes, the swearing, and the humor. Sometimes I did want a little more masculinity from some of her male characters, yet all her character voices were distinct. 4/5 stars on the narration.

    "Dark fantasy"

    I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by S.M. Blooding. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

    When I decided to listen to this book I had no idea how dark it would be. I usually try to avoid dark fantasies because I prefer to read more positive novels. After a few minutes, I started wondering what I'd gotten myself into but I ended up liking it. There are some books that are better read and some that are better listened to, and I think I would have liked Whisky Witches even more if I'd read it.

    Paige is smart and independent but broken. The problem is that she didn't even know it because her memory of the last few years was erased by her family "for her own good." They're scared of her powers because she's a demon summoner. Now that she has her memory back, she has terrible memories to deal with besides trying to find a killer and trying to keep herself and others safe from demons and angels. 

    When I heard that Paige was a demon summoner, it made me wonder about her, but once I learned about this world's demons and angels, a demon summoner didn't sound so bad. Paige's nonbelief in God and the way angels are portrayed may bother some readers. 

    Kalinda Little does a good job narrating. She has good timing and inflection and I was able to follow the different characters by the changes in her voice.

    Whisky Witches is a mostly dark supernatural adventure but it did make me laugh once or twice and there's this sexual tension between Paige and Dexx that will hopefully be explored more in the next novel which I'll be listening to soon. I'm looking forward to learning what happens next with Paige.

    3.5 stars

    "Whiskey Witches"

    Let’s say that you come from a long line of witches, well-known witches who help people with the supernatural or the unexplainable situations. What would be your first thought? Would you be a target? Would people like you? Fear you? Would it be dangerous? All of these questions arise in Whiskey Witches, the first installment in the series. Blooding has an intense break of the ice, first installment too! There are a lot of questions, a lot of injustices, and possession. We can’t forget that. The author does a stunning job by incorporating action-pact and paranormal elements all in one package.

    Paige Whiskey is the detective…and witch…called into a crime scene with murder written all over it. Paige tends to get the strange cases and for the life of her, can’t really figure out why. Why are they drawn to her? She doesn’t possess any gift like the other witches in her family. Once she figures out what this particular case is about, she feels like she is in over her head. Someone is killing people in a sick and twisted sacrificial way in order to raise a demon. Why would they want to raise a demon? After learning exactly what their plan is…she fears that she may have been called in too late. Someone is out to raise a specific demon, protector of the Gate to Hell. There is something else going on and Paige takes it upon herself to find out what the bigger scheme is. Who are they working for? Who is involved? Demons? Angels? Humans? With all that being said, Paige discovers some things about herself in the process that were hidden from her memory…like the fact that she does indeed have a power…to summon demons. That little fact could have been the main reason why she was called to the scene in the first place…unbeknownst to her…but not the killer.

    Blooding does a superb job with character development, originality, creativity, and pace. The pace is nice and fast, but not in any way difficult to keep up with. The scenery described is vivid, lucid, and completely elemental. Since this review compliments the audiobook, the narrator Kalinda Little did have some strengths and weaknesses with the portrayal of this story. The special effects when layering her voice for paranormal entities were incredible as well as changing the vocalization from past to present memories. The only thing that didn’t sit well with the story was the attitude in which the narrator portrays for her characters. Some of them were scared being control, but everyone seemed to have a sense of bravado in the voices that were relayed over audio. There should have been more emotional differences, but found none. If you are a reader of paranormal fiction and dark fantasy, you may want to pick this one up as it is the first installment of the Whiskey Witches Series.

    A copy of this audiobook was provided to Turning Another Page by Audiobookworm Promotions, but this in no way affects our honest opinion of the book or the review that has been written. We provide a four-star rating for Whiskey Witches by S.M. Blooding, narrated by Kalinda Little.

    "A complex and complicated story"

    “Whiskey Witches” is great for the fans of Supernatural – which I am. But regardless of the show, it is a great book, with a complex and complicated plot. The story gets deeper and deeper with very page. So yes, I liked it.

    Our main character is faced with a lot of battles, not only with demons, but family and even herself. With her powers and memories banned by magic, she is vulnerable. But once she gets her mojo back, she is on for business. People still are afraid of what she can do, few trust her to make the right decisions. So she has become though, badass, uninterested in anybody’s opinion, but with her head well in the game. Yes, they say she is evil; they blame her for all the bad things now happening. But she is facing everything alone, no allies, nobody to advise what would be the best way to handle her gifts. So I like this independence and this force she has inside to overcome the obstacles. I think she is a very complex character and a lot can be discussed about Page Whiskey.

    We have some romance as well between her and her demon hunter friend Daxx. The funny thing is she is summoning demons, while he catches them. But they will let the attraction build between them and Page will count on him on every occasion.

    I did not feel that confortable with the amount of detail we get form their past lives. I felt like there was another story which I failed to read before this one. There is a lot of background to which we are familiarized kind of quickly. In my opinion, it would have been better to have some kind of introduction, to better grasp the events that led to this book.

    The narration was quite all right, even if I had some issues distinguishing between the characters. Kalinda Little is doing a great job expressing emotions and making you like or dislike a character or the tone in which they speak at times. However, it was difficult identifying who was talking at times.

    All in all, 4 stars for Book 1 and I am looking forward to listen to the next volume. It is not a great read at all, but is an enjoyable one for sure. Have fun!

    "A good Paranormal investigation story begins"


    I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by S.M. Blooding. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

    She's a witch with no powers investigating occult murders. Or is she? 

    I enjoyed how quickly the backstory and world building was done in this book, and how we got to know Paige and her angst very well. Secrets and bombshells and deception and memory blocks and horrible family members make for a very angry main character. 

    I enjoyed the narrator quite a bit, especially the accents and the effects of the memories and voices inside her head versus out in the open. Those were brilliant. And demons with British accents. Can't go wrong there.

    I kind of struggled with all the problems Paige had. She kept getting attacked by ghosts, beaten up and kidnapped, possessed. I mean, that's a lot for one detective to handle, even after getting past the memory issues. It felt like she just couldn't get ahead with all she was facing, and that made for uncomfortable reading.

    I did really like Dexx. I liked how he always had her back, and even though he kept trying to get in her pants, he truly cares about her and continues to put himself in danger to protect her. Gotta love that in a sort-of love interest.

    This story contained angels and demons, where not all angels are good as not all demons are bad. I loved the mentions of Buffy and Supernatural (and the comment about getting lucky with Jensen Ackles). 

    I'm curious about the combination of volumes 1-4 in this book. It sounds like it was originally a serial novel type story that combined into one book. I would be curious to see where each story left off originally, but somehow I can picture it being during the worst of the fight scenes, like a TV show that ends on a cliffhanger bombshell until next week. Glad to have read it as one piece, though it doesn't have a full conclusion and the next book will continue the saga and the battle with the big bad demon Sven.

    "Complex storyline & characters!"

    This is my first encounter with author S. M. Blooding and I gotta say I am blown away by her writing ability. Blooding weaves a diverse, complex story filled with amazing characters whose backstories could be books of their own. Whiskey Witches is a fast paced, thrilling paranormal read that i highly recommend. The main character, Paige Whiskey, is phenomenal. I seriously do not know how she controls her anger because if i was in her shoes I would be summoning a horde of demons to exact my revenge. Trust me read or listen to this book!

    The narrator, Kalinda Little, did an fantastic job of embodying each character. Through her interpretation the story sprang to life from my speakers.
