Night of Jinxes was a fun short story in the Moonlight Dragon series by Tricia Owen. 

Anne Moody has some bad juju coming her way again. The shop she runs is cursed and well some unusual and not so safe items keep finding their way to her doorstep. Anne must neutralize one of the curses; before her home becomes her tome.

Her best friend Melanie wants to hold a Night of Jinxes. What is a Night of Jinxes it’s where they trigger all the curses in the shop and hopeful they can find the one that’s really bad, the one that wants to kill Anne. What could go wrong?

Melanie and Anne have a great friendship and it shows in the pages. 

This short story gives you a little taste of Anne’s world. It’s fun, entertaining, and enjoyable. Those that like reading Urban Fantasy, magic or Las Vegas might enjoy checking out this series, Moonlight Dragon. I’m curious to check out more. 

Rated 3.5 Stars

  1. This does sound like a cute story. Is this a prequel story or do you need the other books to get a good backstory for this one?

    • It’s not a prequel. Book one explained a lot about Anne Moody and her friendship with Melanie. You really see that friendship connection. You also learn about her weird store and that it’s cursed. I’ve only read book one and then this short story. I have plans to read on.

      I don’t feel like you have to read the books, but reading book one connected me to the characters and their friendship they have, which made this short enjoyable for me.
