Title: Vicious Circle
Author: Linda Robertson

A girl's got to do what a girl's got to do....

Being a witch doesn't pay the bills, but Persephone Alcmedi gets by between reading Tarot cards, writing her syndicated newspaper column, and kenneling werewolves in the basement when the moon is full -- even if witches aren't supposed to mingle with wolves. She really reaches the end of her leash, though, when her grandmother gets kicked out of the nursing home and Seph finds herself in the doghouse about some things she's written. Then her werewolf friend Lorrie is murdered...and the high priestess of an important coven offers Seph big money to destroy the killer, a powerful vampire named Goliath Kline. Seph is a tough girl, but this time she bites off more than she can chew. She needs a little help from her friends -- werewolf friends. One of those friends, Johnny, the motorcycle-riding lead singer for the techno-metal-Goth band Lycanthropia, has a crush on her. And while Seph has always been on edge around this 6'2" leather-clad hunk, she's starting to realize that although their attraction may be dangerous, nothing could be as lethal as the showdown that awaits them.

Vicious Circle begins with Persephone being a local witch and reading Tarot cards. She just recently had her Nana move in with her, and she's trying to figure out how to manage life now. But when her werewolf friend Lorrie is murdered, things go from bad to worse for Persephone. With more werewolves then she knows what to do with, and a teenager she's got her hands full. Not to mention some crazy vampires seem to be after them as well. She must find the killer before it is too late. 

This book was interesting. I just never really connected with the characters, or felt much emotion from them. I, sometimes felt like Persephone didn't have many emotions, and it made it hard to enjoy her character. Especially when it came to the "romance" part of the story. Other then that though it was really interesting to see the witches, werewolves, and vampires all together. Not sure I will read any more in this series, but this one was still good to pass the time with.
