Kind’s Kiss (PK1) - If You Can’t Do Magic Then You Better Learn How to Shoot Straight
IF YOU CAN'T DO MAGIC THEN YOU BETTER LEARN HOW TO SHOOT STRAIGHT.
Jessica DeRidder is a substitute teacher and mage in hiding, her daughter Ellen a killer on the run. Their next job lands the mother-daughter team in Hellhole, a small town in the middle of nowhere. All they need to do is their job. For Mom to identify the problem, and for Ellen to... fix it.
Easy. Simple. But not this time.
The pair find themselves caught in the struggle between the Man-in-White and the Wicked Witch of the West. A mysterious image and the theft of a deadly flower lead the pair to a score of dead prisoners, magical drug dealers, and red-eyed assassins falling from the sky. And somehow it all seems to be related to Ellen's murky past.
All Ellen wants to do is do her homework, eat ice cream, and protect her newfound friends (not necessarily in that order). She'll go all-in, guns blazing. But when the smoke clears there may be nothing left but a stranger's past and a lonely future.
Kind's Kiss is a light, modern-day fantasy, easy on the magic, heavy on the snark. Though complete it is still a work in progress. One reviewer described it as 'Buffy meets Sabrina, as done by Tarantino'. I'm still not sure if I should consider that a compliment or hire a hitman :-)

First thing's first, yes you hould read this.
The story at least to start out with is a little slow but I don't mind since I just love to read the MC monologue. The author also does a great job actually describing and emoting the world, something that I find often lacking with other RR stories.
