Alejandro is a newbie government agent with years of vampire fighting experience. He and his partner are sent on a mission to help the Cardinal Witches with a basilisk problem. What Alejandro finds is a hot mess named Rose.
Rose Cardinal is a powerful witch who lives with her witchy-family. She spends her time helping others and caring for her community. Never giving much thought about personal time, she is shocked by her attraction to not-her-type Alejandro.
Alejandro's Sorceress is a novella-length story that spins-off a new series from Ms. Day's highly successful Warriors of Poseidon series. Although in the same world (and the bad a$$ warriors make a quick appearance), the tone of this book is much lighter than the original series.
Alejandro and Rose's romance is extremely quick. They share an insta-love that defies anything they've experienced before. But even those around them realize after just one day that the couple is destined to be mated. While I've never been a fan of quick-to-fall-in-love stories, there romance fits the mood and flow of the title, so I didn't mind it as I would in a more serious or longer book.
Alejandro's Sorceress is silly entertainment; a bit over the top, but light and humorous and done in an enjoyable manner. I liked the set up of the world, and the Cardinal family looks like a lot of fun. Reading Alejandro's Sorceress piqued my interest in checking out the next title, which I hope is a bit more developed with a bit longer storyline.
My Rating: B/B-
