Ben and Fran # 1-2
Published by : New American Library
Two Katie MacAlister vampire
novels—Got Fangs? and Circus of
the Darned—now back in print and
together for the first time!
Meet Francesca. She’s in Europe, working in a
traveling faire along with psychics, magicians, and
other really bizarre people. Her life? Not-so-normal.
Her boyfriend, Ben? Not-so-alive. And in these two
novels, it’s up to Francesca to redeem his soul, find
something to wear on their very first date, deal with
her emerging psychic talent, and shake the warring
Viking ghosts she accidentally conjured.
My Thoughts and Review
This was just an okay read for me. Not a lot of substance. There is basically two stories in one. The both stories revolve around Ben and Fran.Frans has been living with her mother this summer traveling with a faire. Her moms a witch and Fran also has her own special powers of her own she can read people by touching them like your very own truth detector.She meets Ben who is a Dark One a 300 year old plus vampire who says that after searching many years he has found his beloved and soul-mate in Fran. She thinks he is nuts.While Ben per-sues ,Fran is investigating the theft of someone stealing from the faire's till and her mom wants to enlist Fran to uncover the culprit.Frans hates that she special and does not want to use her powers she wants to be normal and doesn't want anyone thinking she is a freak .Fran has a real problem being different and throws it up in everyones face at every turn she can get how she hates it wanting to me normal it becomes annoying ! She is the only one who can solve this crime as the person responsible for the theft is a non-human. Ben and her learn to get to know one another which Fran is not making it easy for him, He has a Demon trying to kill him and secrets of is own making life tough at the moment.
There is a little bit of mystery . I liked the backdrop of the story which was something different for a change .I just felt this story lacked excitement.
The other story however was cute. Ben is back and he and Fran are trying the boyfriend girl friend thing. At one of Frans mothers witch circle meeting Fran accidentally summons a bunch of Ghosts that are Viking thinking she is a Goddess and they are there to do her bidding.This story gave been some laughs as the Vikings are giving Fran advice on Love and Dating which was hilarious. The scene where they were shopping with her was a Hoot. A my favorite there trips to M Donald's for big macs. And the scene where they sacrificed there big mac's to the Loki god had me chuckling.This story had more going on and Ben and Fran team up to find away to return the ghost to where they belong and the continue on finding out who is trying to kill been and why ?
Would recommend this as a library read or a paperback swap book.Even though I had some mixed feeling about the one story the other story did make up for that.
