This book started off great with lots of gory details, but the story began right in the middle of a grand showdown between several policemen, a drug lord, and four witches, no gradual plot build-up here. Where did these witches come from? We do learn more about the witches as the story progresses, and we are later introduced to a 5th witch. My interest feigned as I continued reading, however. The story didn't grab me. There were many brief appearances by irrelevant characters, slowing down the pace of the novel, although the pace did pick up in the end, closing with an interesting plot twist. Don't get me wrong, I liked this book, my first Graham Masterton. I will give him another try. Masterton, a supposed master of the horror genre and author of over fourty novels, is bound to have written a book that I can rave about. The 5th Witch just wasn't it.

I like this new book. Little different type of writing for Mr. Masterson. funny and still very good. Witches take over Los Angeles! I usually dont care for witch stories much but this one was worth it!!
