Lustre by Jaimie Munn is a different book about a different witch who goes on a different sort of quest/wild goose chase. A two-line text puts Nilla Hayes, a witch who is fueled by sugar, in a binding contract with an angel—who is not what you normally think angels are. This hunky angel, Nate, collects those with supernatural abilities. Nilla is contracted to find one of Nate’s collection who suddenly starts killing after finding powers he was not supposed to. Nilla delves into the search, encountering many of well-known missteps, to a somewhat surprising ending.

A witch converting sugar into magic was an interesting concept put forth in the book, as was the role of an angel as not-quite a villain, both of which I found fascinating. The book is a short one that can be read in one sitting (or quickly, if not in one sitting). The author has done a pretty good job of bringing to life both well-developed and described characters and settings. I recommend this for anyone who enjoys a different sort of book about witches or the supernatural, or for anyone who is looking for something a bit different, with some interesting, unusual ideas. I received this from Library Thing to read and review. ( )

This is the perfect afternoon read if you want to read about a jaded witch who just broke up with her girlfriend and gets sent on a bit of a wild goose chase. The plot was predictable but in that comfortable way you can just sit down and enjoy. ( )

Book description
Witching for a living is hard. Witching after your werewolf girlfriend opts for ex is harder. Witching as an escape, now that's impossible. Just ask Nilla Hayes.

It takes a special kind of very bad day to break the one rule that every witch has. Never⸺and I mean never, never⸺work for angels. If breaking up is hard to do, try it while hunting down a dream thief with a mean streak. Add in a very tight deadline courtesy of your unfriendly, neighbourhood supernatural, and even if the job is all expenses paid, it still amounts to a very, very bad day. You can't cash anything from the other side. When you witch in haste...your regrets might make the obituaries.
