About Blood Fugue:

“Some folks treated the past like an old friend. The memories warmed them with fondness for what was, and hope for what was to come. Not me. When I thought of long ago, my insides curdled, and I was left feeling sour and wasted.”

Jenny Schmidt is a young woman with old heartaches. A small town
Texas girl with big city attitude, she just doesn’t fit in. Not that she has ever tried.

Life has pummeled her heart into one big, lonely callus. She has no siblings, both parents were dead by sixteen, and her last grandparent—and caretaker—was in the ground before she turned twenty-one. She’s the last living member of her immediate family. Or so she thinks…

“We found my ‘grandfather’ sitting at his dining room table. An entire scorched pot of coffee dangled from his shaky hand. His skin was the ashen gray shade of thunderclouds, not the rich mocha from the photo I’d seen. There were dark blue circles under each swollen red eye. A halo of white hair skirted his bald head, a crown of tangles and mats. Corpses had more life in them.”
Suddenly, instead of burying it with the dead, Jenny is forced to confront the past. Armed only with an ancient family journal, her rifle, and an Apache tomahawk, she must save her grandfather’s life and embrace her dangerous heritage. Or be devoured by it.


My Review:
Jenny isn't your normal girl....being six foot tall with purple hair, no family, and a best friend as your land lord, she doesn't have many friends.  Except for those "on-line" friends that she loves to torture with her insane gaming skills.  She is a loner with her own computer repair business.
However, that changes when she is contacted by her grandfather...yes, the grandfather that died many many years ago.  This will change Jenny's life drastically.  She learns of her ancient heritage, and is given an old family journal with secrets that will help her with the Moonsong blood running through her veins.

I loved Jenny's personality.  Even though she is alone in the world, you can tell she still wants to make that connection with family.  She has a lot of spunk that I adored learning about.  I love ALL stories with ancient Indian history, especially being from native American descent myself.  I found it intriguing and tons of fun to read.  Novellas are fun...easy to read and complete in one night sitting.  It gives you that sense of accomplishment having a hectic day.  Blood Rogue has one of those endings that you least expect, giving it that "OMG" reaction.  Fast past, humorous bickering, action....it's a thrill of a read!!



About Witch's Nocturne:

After receiving an ancient tribal journal from her grandfather, Jenny is sent on a mission of discovery in an attempt to unravel clues to her family's monster hunting past. The journey becomes more than academic when she is asked to confront a coven of dangerous witches who plan to cast an insidious spell on the plains of West Texas.

Witch's Nocturne is the second of the Moonsongs Books, a series of paranormal-horror-action novelettes by author E.J. Wesley. These stories contain language and content better suited for mature readers.


My Review:
Jenny's journey continues in Witch's Nocturne.  Jenny and her best friend are trying to decipher the ancient journal so she can learn more about the Moonsong history....she's not having much luck.
Jenny is contacted by someone that wants to use her "services".  Jenny finds out that a coven of witchs are about to do something horrible to a community.  Can Jenny help in time?
As in Blood Fugue, Witch's Nocturne has that adventure and excitement and unexpected twist that keeps you wanting more.  Jenny's personality hasn't changed a bit, and the paranormal world seems to grow.  Novelettes are growing on me...I love that finishing- in- one- sitting feeling.  When you have all that action, twists, and paranormal beings, how can you go wrong?  It's a nice escape from the real world.  My heart did ache for Jenny in this story, her want to connect with someone is completely shown in this story.
I really look forward to what Jenny's is going to get involved with next.  I see this series going in a lot of directions....and with unanswered questions, leaves me wanting more.
