    • Time for another un-review from the authorFun facts about Deadhead!- This book had been out for three months before I gave it the series name of 'Damned, Girl!' - a friend of mine joked that that's what I should call it. He wasn't serious. I did it anyway.- The story came to me in a dream! Well, bits of it. OK, I had a dream about ghosts. Shh. It counts.- The opening of Deadhead was originally a short story that sat untouched on my computer for six months before I began to wrangle it into a nove [...]


    • This is such a fun read! The voice of the main character, Nessa, is brilliant. The entire books feels like a conversation, flowing naturally and full of surprises.Basically, Nessa is being investigated for practising magic without a licence (I know, fun huh?) She has to solve the murder of Ed, a ghost who turns up as she is being interrogated. Along she way, she makes friends with a fae, witch, and shifter! With awesome powers, she is capable of many feats, which include a private line to the de [...]


    • This is a rollicking romp through the world of the weird and paranormal and Australia Nessa is making her living as a psychic, barely. While the local coven tries to convince her to join them. Then a newt from the Department of Magic shows up and tells her she has a quest, followed shortly by a ghost who demands she solve his murder. Things quickly go from bad to worse when zombies, vampires and Death all get in on the act. Our heroine has a big secret and the Devil is in the details.


    • I loved the snarkiness! From page 1, I had to read on.I did feel like I missed something at the end of the book. So, I wrote to Ms. Kauter and inquired and was advised that I didn’t miss anything - the story with Ed and the Doomstone isn’t wrapped up because it becomes part of the overarching plot of the series. There will be more answers in Sled Head!That said, on to Sled Head, the next book in the series!


    • Now, normally I’m not a reader of supernatural fiction, but Deadhead was quite a fun read. The characters’ dialogue made me laugh aloud more than once – and not due to it being fake – and Nessa’s sassy and sarcastic narration helped me enjoy the story further.While Deadhead wasn’t incredible, in my opinion (since it felt too short and at times rushed), it definitely wasn’t awful or even bad. Not a favorite of mine or anything – but pretty good for a free ebook!


    • Reviewer’s note: I downloaded this book for free on .I picked this book up because it was September and I was looking for something to get me into the fall/autumn spooky mood and it sounded interesting. And let me tell you, folks, it did not disappoint. For starters, the plot is interesting and a non-stop action mix of mystery, supernatural, and spooky fall-vibes (but maybe that last one is the weather influencing me). Plus, Clare has an incredible gift of weaving in laugh-out-loud humor and p [...]


    • A punny read Quite enjoyed this book. It was an easy read but kept Nevada's a long time as I had to keep going until I had finished it. I would have to comment though that, if I wasn't regularly forced to watch certain programmes with my grandsons, I probably wouldn't have understood or appreciated some of the references.


    • 5*This book had me in tears of laughter after the first few pages. And it didn't stop making me smile, a brilliantly witty and well written book and am definitely going to be buying the rest of the series, although it can be read as a stand alone book.


    • 3.5 starsFree on .Fun and doesn't take itself too seriously.The internal narrative of Nessa is very endearing.


    • Cute book and a quick read. I would give it a 3.5. Would love to rate it higher but of course there is a cliff hanger. So irritating.


    • Light, fast paced, and fun! The narrative was humorous and the dialog was snarky, which I liked. The main character, Nessa, had a tendency to go from the frying pan and into the fire. The story starts out with Nessa getting a visit from a shapeshifting bureaucrat who wants to test her for a magic licence that she didn't even know she needed. In order to get the licence, Nessa has to go on a quest. The rest of the book is full of all kinds of shenanigans as Nessa tries to solve the mystery that w [...]


    • What a wonderful book!I happened to find this book while just randomly looking through other fantasy selections and the cover of this book caught my eye. After reading the synopses, I knew this was my kinda story. At this point I am only halfway through the book, but I'm so enchanted by this little treasure that I wanted to help spread the word! I love the heroine and her rather unusual companions, but what stands out for me is the perfectly snarky wit throughout that actually causes me to laugh [...]


    • Okay, so this was a free read thanks to the author giving the digital version away on . To be honest my expectations weren't high but I was so wrong. There were a number of laugh out loud moments, the main character has an internal narrative eerily similar to my own (does this make me nuts? Anyway). To put it simply, this Australian based novel is a great, fun romp through a magic filled world which seems to run in conjunction with ours, with quirky characters and mysterious quests. I'm looking [...]


    • This was a hilarious read from the Aussie author who also pens the Charlie Davies series.I loved the youthful snarkiness of the main character Nessa and although it is essentially a cosy mystery, it encompasses a complete range of supernatural creatures that lend to the hilarity and solving of the mystery.A super enjoyable read - I can't wait to read more of Clare Kauter's work!




    • Delightfully differentFound this book to be a pleasant change from others I have read lately. Excellent use of puns and allegories. Was a refreshing change.


    • I read Clare's debut novel, the first Charlie Davies mystery, a couple of months ago and really enjoyed her writing style and sense of humor. I was interested to see how those things would translate from a mystery series to a paranormal fantasy, and I wasn't at all disappointed. Clare kept all the strongest parts of her voice and style and applied them to a supernatural mystery rather than an everyday one, so I think this was really the best of two worlds.I also think that Clare's writing has be [...]
