"This is a jaunt into the underworld, where murder is OK if you're hungry, past lives are a given and fairies wanting to rule the world are to be avoided. And even though she's now part of the undead and rips out the occasional throat, Sophie still wants to buy a Christmas tree and never forgets to take care of her cat. An oddly lighthearted romp mixed in with mayhem, blood and gore."--"Romantic Times BOOKreviews "on" The Midnight Work" "Sims takes risks... The result is a work of imagination and creativity."--"Paperback Reader "on" The Midnight Work" "A fabulous paranormal... Kassandra Sims provides a lighthearted yet dark humorous tale."--"Paranormal Romance Reviews "on" The Midnight Work" "Sophie, Suki, and Norah may not be the most loveable of characters ever but they certainly are real. Imagine the cast of "Sex and the City," only younger, and worried about spilling blood on their designer handbags."--"About.com" on "The Midnight Work"
About Kassandra Sims
Kassandra Sims is a criminal mastermind and evil genius whose plans for world domination and sassy yet comfortable heels have been as of yet woefully unsuccessful. Born and raised South of the Mason-Dixon line, she currently bides her time in her lair in Nashville, Tennessee, waiting for the opportunity to thwart the forces of shoe designers everywhere. Her time is generally occupied with knitting, researching ancient cults, practicing her evil laugh, and employing her uncooperative cats to stage mock battles.
