A good choice for the 15+ crowd
When we first meet our character, we are sort of thrown into her story mid-step. We learn about Danni as we read the novel; who she is, what she’s lived and this feels a bit like more of a self-exploration story. This novel was for Danni to sort of come into her own as a person and as a member of this world normal humans don’t know anything about. She is a member of what is known as the Weeia and she has made it her life’s work to protect and uphold the laws. As the story unfolds, we learn more about a mystery that quickly becomes our (the reader’s) main interest. There’s a lot of things that happen as this story unfolds, but the characters are fun and well-written with great detail and lots of interesting moments that will keep you as a reader interested.
There is a magical/fantasy element as well as some spy like stuff that makes it fun and of course, the heart of it all….a mystery our young Weeia must solve. Toss on a little romance and cut it into a triangle, and we’re all cooking now in the pot. The end result is a savory and enjoyable novel that will be enjoyed by several audiences. There’s nothing too adult in this novel such as foul language or sex-scenes, so it’s a good choice for the 15+ crowd for sure.
All in all I enjoyed the book and didn’t find any slow parts that lagged. I enjoy reading new authors and I hope you’ll pick this one up and you’ll enjoy it too.

I truly enjoyed this fantasy story because it was different than most that I’ve read
Gypsies, Tramps and Weeia started out with the examination of a young Weeia girl, Danni, who needs to pass in order to become the next level marshal. Weeia is creatures who appear like humans at first glance, but should they gather in a crowd, they’d stand out too much from distinctive features. They possess special powers for the purpose of protecting both humans and Weeia.
When the story opens, we find that Danni’s family makes it hard to build a name for herself. Aside from a couple of faithful friends, Danni is basically paying for the sins of her family. She wants nothing more than to prove that she’s worth a second glance. She finds that chance in her first assignment: Paris.
Having never been to Paris before, I felt as though I was right there. The idea of having the first assignment in Paris can make anyone walk in an excited daze. However, Danni’s excitement is short-lived when she arrives at a dirty apartment, her boss doesn’t care to meet her and she’s stuck trying to orient herself in a new, strange place. But that won’t last for too long–soon, she will be swept up in an adventure of a lifetime.
The plot was well thought-out, characters three-dimensional. I truly enjoyed this fantasy story because it was different than most that I’ve read. There were a few problems in the editing but still didn’t keep me from becoming immersed in this wonderful tale of Gypsies, Tramps and Weeia.
Overall Rate: 5 out of 5 stars

Georgia author: Gypsies, Tramps and Weeia should appeal to any reader that loves mysteries with a supernatural twist
Gypsies, Tramps and Weeia should appeal to any reader that loves mysteries with a supernatural twist
Weeia are a specialized group who live among humans and who possess certain special powers. Except for these special powers, Weeia are undistinguishable from humans. Weeia Marshals are trained to prevent unscrupulous Weeia from using their powers against humans.
When Danni Metreaux, a recent third level graduate of the Weeia Marshal academy, is unexpectedly sent to Paris for her first assignment, she is excited and a bit over-whelmed. She is also the envy of the rest of the academy graduates who have received much more mundane postings. However, Paris disappoints her as her boss, Francois appears completely burned out an uninterested, his friend Patrick is an unknown factor and the Office Manager, Madame Marmotte comes across as an ineffective busy-body manipulator.
Soon, Danni is up to her heck in intrigue involving a gypsy clan and desperately trying to get her boss to back her. Will she be successful and survive the gypsy threat? I suppose you’ll have to read it to find out!
Gypsies, Tramps and Weeia should appeal to any reader that loves mysteries with a supernatural twist.
