147) Cloud City by Jeanne C. Stein

The Blurb :

Vampire Anna Strong never expected to find the witch Sophie Deveraux on her doorstep, asking for a favor. But Sophie needs help, even if it's from the vampire who killed her sister. Anna, driven both by guilt and obligation, agrees to help Sophie and her psychic alter-ego Jonathan. So begins an adventure that takes them to Leadville, Colorado. All too soon, Anna wonders whether Sophie is truly a victim of circumstance . . . or the author of a clever plot to rid herself of her unwanted psychic twin.

My Thoughts :

The Anna Strong Chronicles are over but I was happy to see this short story on Amazon and had to have it.  I am glad that the series is over and that Anna got an ending but that isn't to say I won't miss this series.  I loved Anna and her kick-ass attitude she was, as named, Strong and she was a character I could admire and always enjoy catching up with.

So this novella wasn't on my to be read pile for long.  I had to have another fix of one of my all time favourites and this was just what I needed.  This story was brilliant.  Of course it couldn't beat a full length novel but it came pretty damn close.  The depth the author managed to get into such a short story and the wonderful plot that made up this installment was just amazing.  I couldn't have wished for anything better.

If you haven't already read this series then I suggest you do as soon as possible.  Now it is over you can read them all in one delightful gulp.  If you want to try the series before you buy then this novella may just be what you are looking for.  It doesn't give away much of the previous plot but it is marked as fitting into the series as #8.5.

So now I am left waiting for some new from this author.  However once thing is certain.  I will be visiting this series again soon.  I plan on listening to all the books via audible.
