Toxic by A.M. Schilling


Tizzy Banks has a problem. Everywhere she goes she bumps into something straight out of a fairy tale or a nightmare. From a werewolf with a thing for soccer jerseys to a leprechaun who slings coffee at a local pub, her new town is so high on the creep-o-meter scale that it broke it. Worse, the monsters have figured out she can see them–unlike most humans–and they’re hell-bent on bringing her into their group.

All Tizzy wants to do is work on her movie blog and get to know her absentee dad a little bit, but she’s got the werewolf following her around like a pet dog, a chess-playing dragon bugging her to go on a quest to find herself, and a bunch of dumb fairies flitting around town. They’re searching for a creature they claim is a threat to the community. Too bad the “creature” they’re looking for is Tizzy, and as far as she knows, she’s not dangerous. She’s also not up to handling a bunch of fairy hit men.

Tizzy better figure out who to trust, why exactly she can see what she sees, and just what’s up with her father and his quirks before the fairies come knocking on her door. The answers she finds will be what she needs to defend herself from fairy justice, and maybe, hopefully, stay alive long enough to write her next post.

Note: Toxic is unfinished, with no recent updates.  It contains some graphic violence and harsh language.

By Tempest, author of Mage Life

Mar 28, 2014: My title says it all, I haven’t had a great deal of time, but I read the first chapter. What I got out of it was coffee up my nose, and a need for some wipes. My poor laptop took the brunt, it suffered in silence, but glared reproachfully at me. This stories voice is funny, with a capital F. Its urban fantasy at its lightest, well the first chapter is. Have a look, hopefully this review will get fleshed out when I have a bit more time.

Fun, lively, light entertainment.

By Eren Reverie, author of Et Alia

Jan 2, 2015: So, this was pretty entertaining. The point-of-view character has a snarky mental voice and a lot of energy. That said, she also makes a fair number of dubious decisions – which, okay, I might not be the best judge of the realism of (I was hyper cautious at that age, which I guess is not quite the norm).

The story is interesting, though, and has a pretty light hearted tone to it despite the somewhat dark and potentially dangerous creatures [more . . .]
