Title: Guild of Immortal Women
Author: David Alan Morrison
Publication Date: November 2014
Two bodies are discovered on the grounds of “The Bastille,” home to a coven of witches who belong to the Guild of Immortal Women. The bodies have strange characteristics, so what follows is a combination of merry and sinister romp through ancient history. Medieval times are brought to life through a massive Tapestry adorning the mansion’s walls where the characters — animals and humans — emerge through tears in the fabric. It is up to Detective Matt Mathers and social worker Lynn Swanson to solve the murder-mystery while dealing with the strange world of magic, Guardian Abbey’s amnesia from her past lives, and the devilish mission of Robert and the Doctor to create an immortal heir through the laboratory.

★★★★☆ : Great! I liked this book!
“When one is immortal, one should keep a low profile.”This had been a humorous book. When you think about it, just by reading the title of the book, I assumed this was about a coven of witches bent to annihilate townspeople until they’re the last one standing. But I was so wrong with my assumption. David Alan Morrison wrote a perfectly sinister and comedic book that aimed to mystify, entertain and thrill readers in more ways than one.
Ruth and Tomyris had me laughing and giggling all throughout the book. The mysterious deaths, the tattooed 80 year olds (and a Mickey Mouse tattoo at that!), lost memories, magic, bitching witches, romantic relationships, time travels – you’d think my mind would burst with all these factors. But no, the one that really got me was Abbey’s real identity. Oh My Gosh, that was a bomb!
Clearly, the author has put a lot of effort and creativity and uniqueness in this book. I love, love, love The Guild Of Immortal Women. Never a dull moment from page 1 till the last! Highly recommended read!
