Too Many Curses

Too Many Curses - A. Lee Martinez Nessie reminds me of Martinez's nameless witch in that she's exceedingly practical and comes with an enjoyable, dry sense of humor. The minor characters are creatively fashioned and amusing... especially the jingling vampire and the jar of wizard parts. However, the plot moves very slowly and there isn't much happening at any given point. Too Many Curses is not one of Martinez's better books, but it's all right.
