    Reviewed by: Rabid ReadsI put this book on my wishlist months ago after seeing several back-to-back positive reviews of it by trusted bloggers.But you know how it is . . . SO many books, SO little time . . . extremely small press . . . weird cover . . .If the book doesn't go on sale immediately after it's caught your eye, by the time it does, the stellar endorsements have become vague remembrances, and all the reasons you originally tossed it on top of Mt.

    Cassie Scot Paranormal Detective is a May 2013 release, published by Twilight Times Books. I received a copy of this book from the publisher/author in exchange for an honest review.Cassie comes from a large magical family. This was by design. Her parents wanted 7 children for a reason. Cassie, however, may have put a kink in the plan by never developing any magical skills. Although it wasn't for a lack of trying. Cassie desperately wanted to be a fully engaged member of the family. But, it wasn' [...]

    With a nicely modern—normal and paranormal—take on the noir detective genre, Christine Amsden sets her novel, Cassie Scott, ParaNormal Detective, among the magic-wielders of small-town America, creating a cozily enticing sense of the exotic among the mundane. There’s a mystery to be solved of course, and an enterprising female protagonist who goes about it with logic and determination. But there’s also the question of why this young woman of zero magical talent should have been born to s [...]

    Original review here: offbeatvagabond/2013/05/indie-book-review-kindle-fire-hdmlThis is a story about a young woman named Cassie Scot. She comes from a family full of gifted people. Her parents are very powerful and her other siblings all have a special gift. Everyone has a gift except Cassie. Cassie is the oddball out, but she likes it that way. She wants to be as normal as possible in a very paranormal town. Eagle Rock is known for its magic even though mostly everyone tries to dismiss it or s [...]

    I bought this book because of the rating. It has a rating of 4.38 Stars after 85 people rated it. 90% of the people who rated it, rated it either 4 or 5 Stars. I look at that, and then I look at Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor which has an average rating of 4.08 and think to myself, 'wowis book must be pretty amazing'. Was it good? Yes. Was it amazing? No, not really. A look through the average rating of the first 20 reviewers (listed below) tells me where I went wrong. It kind of rem [...]

    *I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review*Cassie Scot ParaNormal Detective is a fun, engaging read. There are so many books out there about the lone witch or shapeshifter or other magical being in a family of clueless people. It's refreshing to read a book about a normal person surrounded by magic. While the mystery is interesting, it's only a part of what makes this book so hard to put down. Truthfully, what kept me turning the pages were the amazing characters.I lo [...]

  • Marisa

    Creating characters that the reader actually feel connected to is something that not all authors can do, especially in this genre, yet from the very first page I was glued and I ended up reading nearly half the book in one sitting.The story is fast paced and had me glued from the very first page. Though it is obviously embellished from what the real practicing Pagan does it is my opinion that this story was well researched and well thought out and isn’t just another paranormal novel that was w [...]

    1. Book Title 10 of 10CASSIE SCOT PARANORMAL DETECTIVEI must say, it's a very ingenious way to present a title. In fact, when I read it the first timeI had to do a double take to make sure I was really seeing the strike-thru on the word PARA. And when I was convinced that I wasn't crazyat, indeed, it was intended to look like that I thought to myself, 'now what is that about'. Is this Cassie a detective with some sort of ESP that she tries to keep hidden? OR is she somebody everybody assumes has [...]

    I'm a big urban fantasy fan, and a big indie fiction fan, but it's very seldom that the two meet. There's plenty of paranormal romance in the indie world (too much, I think), but not so much UF for some reason. So I was delighted to find this well-written piece of urban fantasy with a strong and appealing main character published by an indie author.The cover looks a little YA to me, but (one of the advantages of indie publication: the author gets to decide these things) the female protagonist il [...]

    REVIEW:I was recently given the opportunity to review Cassie Scot: Paranormal Detective by Christine Amdsen. Being the booknerd that I am, I readily accepted. Now, anyone who has read a review of mine knows that I do not give spoiler alertsoften. When I do, it's because it cannot be avoided, or is a small teaser that doesn't give away the bigger picture. So here it is, my 100% honest opinion of the book.Cassie Scot: Paranormal Detective is about a young woman who was born into a family of super [...]

  • Julie S.

    This is one of those don’t judge a book by its cover type of books. The cover screams low budget and usually low budget covers mean low budget editing, and possibly even writing. But this book was very well written, the plot was exciting, and the characters were intriguing. I’m very happy I was given the opportunity to review book 1 in the Cassie Scot series.The magical world that Cassie lives in is full of secrets and lies, and it doesn’t help matters that Cassie seems to not have been bo [...]

    Originally Reviewed At: Mother/Gamer/WriterRating: 5 ControllersReview Source: AuthorReviewer:AimeeKayI really enjoyed Cassie Scot: Paranormal Detective. This was a surprise considering the story is told in first person, but Cassie is an awesome character. She’s kind and funny. She doesn’t let her lack of magic stop her from trying to create her own place in her parent’s world. I really got attached to her, to the point that at times I almost cried because of things that happened to her. ( [...]

    I have been thoroughly charmed and caught in a spell spun by Christine Amsden. I am not sure what I expected of Cassie Scot but what I got was a lovable and charming character that has won me over. Cassie a “Marilyn Munster” in a magical family has to carve her own way. When nothing is done for the simple reason of favor but has repercussions and debts to be paid, it can be a little tricky. Cassie runs her own detective agency and works with her former boss the police chief to solve magical [...]

    I was given the opportunity to read and review Cassie Scot: Paranormal Detective by Christine Amsden. Let me just start off by saying, this is a wonderful book for all ages. I have absolutely fallen in love with the book and the characters. Immediately the book drew me in to the world of Ms. Cassie Scot. Cassie is the eldest daughter of a very powerful, magical family.

    Some of the best UF I've read, bar none. This is a captivating read from the characters, to the plot to everything in-between. There's enough originality thrown in to keep you guessing. I figured out the whodunit a few pages before the main, but it didn't detract from the story for me. This is good stuff.

Unfortunately for Cassie, she doesn't have any magical abilities and more-or-less a mundane. She's spent her entire life trying to prove worthy to be called a Scot, never really feeling like she belongs with her brood. Having the last name of one of the most powerful families in Eagle Rock has been a double edged sword; she has protections against other magical fa [...]

    **I was gifted a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review**Cassie Scot is the eldest in her powerful family. She's the "black sheep" as she differs from her parents and siblings which can leave her vulnerable. If you've read the book description and other reviews, you'll know that Cassie comes from a large family that has a big Paranormal background. It's because of the Paranormal side of things that Cassie decided to choose a career working in Law Enforcement. She want [...]

    Wow. You know when you read a book, and it leaves you incapable of thinking anything but "wow" on repeat? Well, this is a "wow" book, for sure.Growing up, I used to love mystery novels. I've gotten more into paranormal books recently, so the idea of reading a paranormal mystery seemed pretty interesting. Luckily for me, this book is just awesome! It's like a Nancy Drew novel, for adultswith vampires and magic, of course.The beginning reminded me of the intro to "Father of the Bride." Instead of [...]

    Cassie Scot: Paranormal Detective is the first book in a new series by Christine Amsden, her first foray into the new adult genre. I had the pleasure of reading Mrs. Amsden’s science fiction book The Immortality Virus back in August of last year and when the author offered me an early review copy of Cassie Scot I was happy to accept! Cassie Scot: Paranormal Detective is narrated in first person by our heroine, Cassie Scot who is the eldest daughter of the towns most prestigious and power Scot [...]

I loved the book not just for the unique story, but because the author was able to give me a wonderful experience of a paranormal nature served up in such a nonchalant and casual way!

    Cassandra Morgan Ursula Margaret Scot prefers to be called Cassie (and no wonder). She is the eldest child of two powerful magic users but is the only one of the magical seven who has no powers. Her decision to become a detective after her short-lived career as a sheriff’s deputy results in a less than lucrative business but at least it gets her out of the magic-filled household that reminds her of her lack. Her friendship with Evan Blackwood, scion of a family that has a traditional antipathy [...]

    I absolutely loved this book. I basically flew through this in one afternoon because I couldn't put it down. While it's technically a YA book, you would never know it- it doesn't have the random teenager fluff that some YA novels have. Basically this book is about Cassie, who is born into a family of sorcerers, but unlike everyone else, she has no real powers. She's kind of the black sheep of the family who is constantly being protected since she really can't do it for herself. She strikes out o [...]
