Review Blast for 'Easy Bake Coven' by Liz Schulte

Easy Bake Coven Easy Bake Coven

For Selene Warren being a witch is no big deal. She dabbles in harmless magic with her friends and never thinks much about it. However, when a stranger who seems to know her shows up at her studio and her grandmother is brutally attacked, her simple life becomes complicated.

A world of elves, half-elves, fae—and one peculiar Sekhmet named Femi open up to her. She will discover that fairy tales are real, politics are ugly in any world, and there is a lot more to her life than she ever dreamed possible.

This new reality threatens swallow Selene whole, but with a forgotten past beating down her door, she will have to dive in to save her future.

**My thoughts**

I first "met" Liz Schulte as an author through the Ella Reynolds series, which I loved. I have heard of her Guardian series, which is on my TBR pile. There was a lot of excitement building up around this new series, especially from her beta readers, so I was excited to pick up this one. I am glad I did, because I loved it! (And how can you resist this title?)

In the beginning, as Selene meets her "stranger," I was reminded of H.P. Mallory's Jolie Wilkins series, which I also loved. I took that as a good sign and was completely sucked in to Selene's story. 

I liked that she already knew she was a witch and had some magical powers. She has already created her own coven. But a twist of fate reveals so much more about her real past, challenging her own beliefs and relationships. Her past is out to get her and she needs to rise to the occasion to do something about it. 

Familiar names kept cropping up here and there throughout the book. It turns out that a couple of Liz's popular characters from her other books have made an appearance. I will really have to read that series now!

Pages flew past, and I hated to see it end. I am so glad that the second book is now available! Check out a preview below.

About Author Liz Schulte

Many authors claim to have known their calling from a young age. Liz Schulte, however, didn't always want to be an author. In fact, she had no clue. Liz wanted to be a veterinarian, then she wanted to be a lawyer, then she wanted to be a criminal profiler. In a valiant effort to keep from becoming Walter Mitty, Liz put pen to paper and began writing her first novel. It was at that moment she realized this is what she was meant to do. As a scribe she could be all of those things and so much more.

When Liz isn't writing or on social networks she is inflicting movie quotes and trivia on people, reading, traveling, and hanging out with friends and family. Liz is a Midwest girl through and through, though she would be perfectly happy never having to shovel her driveway again. She has a love for all things spooky, supernatural, and snarky. Her favorite authors range from Edgar Allen Poe to Joseph Heller to Jane Austen to Jim Butcher and everything in between.
