Unsympathetic Magic (Esther Diamond, #3)Unsympathetic Magic by Laura Resnick

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

In this third book in the series, Esther has snagged a spot on a popular TV show and is filming in Harlem. When the show's star gets sick, Esther has some time to kill. This is never a good thing. On her way to snag a snack, she encounters a man being attacked by some sort of unearthly creatures. When she goes to the man's aid, she relizes that the creatures have ripped off his hand, ick, and there is no blood. Hmmmm. Zombies, mambos and big snakes ensue as Esther, Max and a crew of helpers fight to save New York from evil. (Again).

I just love this series. It is funny and touching. Esther is so cute and quirky, and so reckless that I sometimes want to shake her. Max is a doll. The new characters in this book were well developed and I attached to them right away. I still have hope for Esther's love life. I am putting the next book on hold right away.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

If you are a sock knitter you are probably already familar with Cookie A, the designer of devine socks. Now she has a book and it is a must have. I have enjoyed her designs on Ravelry for a while now so this book is a dream come true. I have borrowed it from the library but it is definitely on my list to buy.
