My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Well this is not what I expecting. Guess it figures I should read the summary first. Broom with a View just sounds like a whimsical, humorous book that you would laugh all the way through. Well it’s not. Even though it wasn’t what I was expecting, the story line did hold my interest so much that I couldn’t put it down for long periods of time. This is a story about a war between the Witches and Vampires. A young witch and a vampire who loves her, yet can’t be with her. A mortal man who is a pawn in his mothers scheme to make money off the war. And a whole lot more, that I’m not able to say without giving away the spoilers. I hope if you do read it, you’ll like it as much as I do. Just remember, it’s not as whimsical as the title suggests.
Can a good Witch and a brooding Vampire find true love? Especially when the whole world is against them?
The threat of war between Witches and Vampires means England may no longer be safe for a young Witch. Hence, Miss Violet Popplewell is sent abroad under the watchful eye of her great-aunt Vera. Without so much as a bon voyage party, Violet finds herself a visitor to the city-state of X, a mysterious place where magic is used openly and Witches and Vampires live together in harmony. Or at least, they try to get along. Violet’s aunt is shocked to discover that there are Vampires staying at their pensione and alarmed to note that one of the undead is a rather handsome young man.
An outburst of hostilities in X thrusts Violet into the young Vampire’s arms. And, much to her dismay, she realizes she may have accidentally bewitched him with a love charm. Are the emotions that the Vampire feels true passion or just a slip of the wand?
