Summary

Cassie Scot is the ungifted daughter of powerful sorcerers, born between worlds but belonging to neither. At 21, all she wants is to find a place for herself, but earning a living as a private investigator in the shadow of her family's reputation isn't easy. When she is pulled into a paranormal investigation, and tempted by a powerful and handsome sorcerer, she will have to decide where she truly belongs.

When sorcerers call the shots, what's a girl without powers to do? Get ready for a ripper of a murder mystery full of romance and intrigue, where magic potions bubble, passions spark and vampires are definitely not your friend. Cassie Scot: ParaNormal Detective grabs you by the heart and won't let go.

Critic reviews

"In this entertaining series opener, Amsden ( The Immortality Virus) introduces readers to the eponymous Cassie, a decidedly mundane member of a magical family…Listeners will enjoy Cassie's fish-out-of-water struggles as she fights magical threats with little more than experience and bravado." ( Publisher's Weekly)

Spooky world makes for a great book

This is the first book in this series I have heard or by this author but it won't be the last as I really enjoyed it. I am not sure what I was expecting after reading the blurb but thought I would give it a go as the cover looked interesting and I am glad I did, I don't normally like books about vampires (as they just creep me out) but I did this one, as it was a case of trying to work out who the vampire was. I liked the busy home life of the main character and thought it was woven well into the mystery, with enough mystery and paranormal to keep me hooked. I will be checking out the next book to see how the story develops.
Cassie is trying to prove to her family that she can pull her weight as the only non magical child from a family full of magic history, the only way she knows how by becoming a private investigator. Her first case goes wrong when she stumbles over a dead body while trying to server papers and the body has all the signs of the paranormal being involved. Specifically a vampire and Cassie wants nothing to do with the case until the murdered girl turns out to be a cousin of an old friend and the policeman investigating the case is under a love spell. With her family telling her to stay away from the friend and the case Cassie takes it apon herself to prove them all wrong. She is good for something or she will die trying.
I liked the narrator as she had a nice easy way of speaking that was pleasant.

Entertaining

Magical mystery and vampires make for an interesting storyline. Throw in a little love triangle and family discord to spice things up for a very entertaining story. I really liked the main character and most of the support characters and even had a tearful moment when the parents made a life altering decision. The narrator did a great job.

Paranormal with a twist!

This story is well worth the credit! It’s well written and has a twist to the story. The characters in this story mostly paranormal characters however the star of the story has no power. Her family is however a paranormal family with powers. Cassie is trying to figure out her place with out power.
This story captured my attention from the moment it started. I definitely recommend this book.
The narrator does a fabulous job with the characters and voice of each character.
This was my first book by this author and narrator and I am definitely interested in the rest of this series. I loved listening!!

Brilliant first book

I’ll start off by noting that I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an open and fair review. There were no conditions nor influences on what I wrote in the review and the opinions are my own.

I’m a huge sci-fi and mystery fan and loved the sound of the book from the get go. When I first joined audible I downloaded book one of the Dresden files, within a few months I had listened to the whole selection...I mention this as, to me, it was a little similar to those.

Sure, Cassie doesn’t have the magic like Dresden BUT they’re detectives, there’s a murder or two to investigate, they both deal with the supernatural, they have complicated families and it was a thoroughly good listen. I don’t want to do the book any injustice or make it appear that this is just a copy of another book as it genuinely isn’t, the simple fact for me is Dresden was one of my favourite ever series and I was gutted when it finished...This book seems to pick up the mantle with a female lead this time and I really enjoyed it!

I’d never heard of the author (Christine Amsden) or narrator (Melissa Frank) before but I was really happy with both the story and the narration. I’ve found that sometimes a poor narrator has ruined a book for me whereas a great narrator can pull a dire book and still let me somewhat enjoy it. In this instance the narrator seemed to click with the character and she did a great job. I’ve just checked and thankfully Melissa Frank remains the narrator for the series which is great!

I’ve really enjoyed book 1 and finished listening to it in a single day.

Cassie Scot

What would your life be like if you lived in a paranormal family but have no powers yourself? Cassie lives with this every day and yet she does anything for family. The troubles she finds herself in from a simple detective job leads to many things in her life changing. I loved the way this book developed and can’t wait to see what is next in line at Cassie’s detective agency.

Brilliant

I really loved this book and I listened to it in one go. I couldn't put it down. The story was exciting from start to finish with plenty of twists and turns and a whole host of quirky, mysterious and magical characters. Excellent! The narration was spot on which made the book an easy listen and the rest of the series a must buy for me.
I can't wait to listen to the rest!

YESSS

I have no words to describe how much I like this! Cassie is such a good character, even though she is young and a bit naïve, she didn't came across as weak. It took me a bit of an effort to realize she was a PI who worked with the police and yet still live with her parents, not that there is anything wrong with it, it's just that it seemed she was an adult outside her parents house and a teenager when they were around, it was weird. But besides that, the story runs smoothly, the worldbuilding is amazing, the characters likable and I was never bored.

Melissa Reizian Frank was the best choice for this story, in my opinion. Her voice is mature for the Cassie's age, but I think that made her look older and wiser.

Fabulous start to the series.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Cassie Scot is the oldest child of 7 powerful magic children and parents , however she hasn’t any magic herself .
The family are rather dysfunctional and although Cassie feels bitter about her lack of magic she loves them dearly.
She left the police to become a normal private investigator but no matter what she does she gets sucked into the paranormal.
She eventually ends up working with her child hood sweetheart Evan Blackwood but her parents have a long standing feud with his Father about what she doesn’t know but they are determined to stop Cassie having anything to do with Evan.
I really enjoyed this first book and the narrator really made the characters come to life. I’ve already read book 2 and will be buying further books in this series .

An excellent urban fantasy!

Cassie Scot is an exciting urban fantasy, cleverly plotted with engaging characters. Cassie is an exceptional heroine, she is ordinary and yet surrounded by all things extraordinary. I thoroughly enjoyed the way she handles certain situations and people. Christine Amsden did an outstanding job with the world-building and captivating the readers/listeners to forming a connection with Cassie. Melissa Reizian Frank's narration was superb, she brought the characters, particularly, Cassie to life.

I absolutely enjoyed this book; I can't wait to hear the second book in the series. I was given a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review.
