Witch’s Bounty Demon Assassin Book 1

4 out of 5 Stars

Review:

Once again, author Ann Gimpel has created an enchanting world full of witches, demons, Sidhe, and more. This is the tale of Colleen, the first of the demon assassin witches we will meet. Colleen, Roz and Jenna are witches. They have a relatively peaceful life in Alaska, running a small shop and keeping to themselves. One dark day, the most incredible man Colleen has ever met saunters through the shop door. His name is Duncan, and he is Sidhe. He comes advising the ladies of a major problem…the Irichna demons are back and stronger than ever. Toss is a smartass changeling called Bubba, and let the mayhem begin!  I am a huge fan of Ms. Gimpel’s books, and this series is no exception. I found Colleen and Duncan to be exceptionally strong characters, and the story is a delight to read. It’s fast moving, but not too fast. There’s plenty of spice, and lots of pulse-pounding action. I would absolutely recommend this novel. I would also highly recommend reading the books in order. I am very eagerly anticipating book 2!

Description:

assassin witches, Colleen is almost the last of her kind. Along with her familiar, a changeling spirit, she was hoping for a few months of quiet, running a small magicians’ supply store in Fairbanks, Alaska. Peace isn’t in the cards, though. Demons are raising hell in Seattle. She’s on her way to kick some serious demon ass, when a Sidhe shows up and demands she accompany him to England to quell a demon uprising.

Witch’s Bane Demon Assassin Book 2

4 out of 5 Stars

Review:

WOW! After an explosive first book, this second book in author Ann Gimpel’s incredible Demon Assassin series is fantastic! This tells the tale of Roz, a demon assassin witch with incredible powers, and an attitude to match. After the last demonic assault, Roz, Colleen, Jenna and Bubba all need a break. It won’t last long. The Irichna demons are growing bolder than ever. Back in Fairbanks for just a few days at the most, Roz, Colleen and Jenna are all taken by something that really wants to hurt them.  In comes a rescue party. All of the changelings, the Sidhe nobility (including Ronan, who Roz made quite a connection with), and more come riding to the rescue. I fell in love with Roz and her snarky attitude, while Ronan is a hero for the ages. I adored this book, and I’m eagerly anticipating book 3! I do suggest reading in order, as this book has more than enough heat and plenty of action that builds off the first book. This is not intended for young reader.

Description:

Demons strike in the midst of Colleen’s wedding, and Roz launches desperate measures. As she shape-shifts to keep one step ahead of evil, it takes her mind off her other problems. Personal ones. She burned through a couple of marriages and hooked up with a string of loser men before, after, and in between. Though she wants to be happy for Colleen, the jealousy bug bit deep.

In Roz’s secret heart, she’s attracted to Ronin, one of the Daoine Sidhe. He’s so profanely beautiful she can barely breathe around him, but he’s also headstrong and arrogant. Not good partner material – unless she wants to end up dusting her heart off one more time.

Witches Rule Demon Assassin Book 3

5 out of 5 Stars

Review:

Absolutely explosive! I simply could not put this book down! This is book 3 in author Ann Gimpel’s incredible Demon Assassin series, and what a tale it is! This is the story of Jenna, the demon assassin witch who truly has no clue about who (or what) she is. She’s always felt like the odd one out in her group, the weak one; the one everyone had to protect. Things will soon change. With Jenna, Roz, Ronan, Duncan, Colleen, and the changelings all off to England to plan a final assault on the Irichna demons border world, things seem quiet. But that peace is not to last. Between political moves among the Sidhe, the changelings manipulations, and Jenna’s origins being revealed, she’s more than overwhelmed. And then there’s the issue with Tristan and Kiernan, two gorgeous fey men who both want Jenna. Can she handle them both? Will they survive this most daring plan of assault? Read on. I absolutely adore Jenna and her two fey. They are incredible characters, both strong and courageous, while still being doubtful and insecure. This series is going on my favorites pile! I would highly recommend reading in order. There is plenty of heat and more than enough action. This is not a story for young readers.

Description:

Jenna’s a special witch, sort of, when her magic works, which it often doesn’t. Frustration about her limited power eats at her. It would be pathetic to get killed for lack of skills a teenager could master.

Tristan is a Sidhe warrior. He fell hard for Jenna, but hasn’t had an opportunity to act on the attraction beyond a few kisses. Kiernan is haunted by visions, particularly an apocalyptic sending that seems to be coming true. A confirmed bachelor, he doesn’t understand his attraction to Jenna, but it’s so strong he can’t fight it. After a while, he doesn’t even try, despite recognizing Tristan’s claim to her.

Startling truths surface about Jenna’s magic, and then there’s the problem that she’s falling in love with two very different men.

About the Author:

Ann Gimpel is a mountaineer at heart. Recently retired from a long career as a psychologist, she remembers many hours at her desk where her body may have been stuck inside four walls, but her soul was planning yet one more trip to the backcountry. Around the turn of the last century (that would be 2000, not 1900!), she managed to finagle moving to the Eastern Sierra, a mecca for those in love with the mountains. It was during long backcountry treks that Ann’s writing evolved. Unlike some who see the backcountry as an excuse to drag friends and relatives along, Ann prefers solitude. Stories always ran around in her head on those journeys, sometimes as a hedge against abject terror when challenging conditions made her fear for her life, sometimes for company. Eventually, she returned from a trip and sat down at the computer. Three months later, a five hundred page novel emerged. Oh, it wasn’t very good, but it was a beginning. And, she learned a lot between writing that novel and its sequel.

Around that time, a friend of hers suggested she try her hand at short stories. It didn’t take long before that first story found its way into print and they’ve been accepted pretty regularly since then. One of Ann’s passions has always been ecology, so her tales often have a green twist.

In addition to writing, Ann enjoys wilderness photography. She lugs pounds of camera equipment in her backpack to distant locales every year. A standing joke is that over ten percent of her pack weight is camera gear which means someone else has to carry the food! That someone is her husband. They’ve shared a life together for a very long time. Children, grandchildren and three wolf hybrids round out their family.
