Although I enjoyed the other Diana Tregarde investigation books, this book held little mystery and little investigation. Jinx High by Mercedes Lackey This is the third book of one of Ms Lackey's earlier series. An urban fantasy with vampires, witches who kick butt and teenagers from a rich suburb.

Jinx High (1991) Initially a run-of-the-mill investigation, it quickly spirals into a mess involving.

Arcanum 101 (2010) is a novella included in Trio of Sorcery (2010). In the mid-nineties, Lackey's books generally were regularly cited as examples of pagan-friendly fiction. Lackey wrote that she had no plans for further books in the series because they did not sell well; nonetheless, she incorporated several elements of the Guardian mythos, including the apartment building where Diana lived, into later books in her Bedlam's Bard series.

I love Mercedes Lackey, I haven't found a series yet that I don't like. Diana Tregarde is a fascinating character, a strong female heroinne and this series would be a perfect one that gives girls a strong feminine super hero. The Investigations are unique and the characters are well drawn and interesting. II really enjoyed the story of an ancient Aztec God wreaking vengence on modern day Dallas. Full of magic and sound modern investigation techinques.

She has written many other books, including Trio of Sorcery, Phoenix and Ashes, Sacred Ground, The Firebird, The Fairy Godmother, and Alta.

I love Lackey's Diana Tregarde books that chronologically start with Children of the Night and continues with Burning Water (which was published first). This is the last of them-I've read that they didn't sell well so Lackey won't be writing others, which I think is a shame, especially since the ending leaves some loose ends. I like Diana and the other characters here, and find her as much or more an appealing Urban Fantasy heroine than many on the bestseller lists. This book is reminiscent of Buffy despite predating it given the high school setting and paranormal doings.

I love the Diana Tregarde Investigation series. The main character has two jobs. To make a living, she is a romance novelist. That is because her other job, as a witch who is a paranormal investigator and troubleshooter, doesn't pay very well. Diana is what is known as a Guardian, someone who helps to protect people from things that go bump in the night. In college, she and some friends with various psychic and/or magical abilities had what they called the "Spook Squad" and spent time debunking fake psychics and dealing with real paranormal problems in between their college classes. In this book, a member of the Squad calls her for help because his son is in danger and his wife, another member, is out of the country and unreachable. For those of you familiar with the SERRAted Edge series, there is a cameo in Jinx High by Tannim.

I just bought all three Diana Tregarde novels for my Kindle. I have read them so many times I ended up buying them in print versions twice, once years ago when I first found them and once when they were reissued more recently. I have also bought several of the Diana short stories for my Kindle. It has always been a great disappointment to me that the fourth book, Triangle Park, was finished and at the publisher but was canceled due to lack of sales for the previous three books. I once wrote to the publisher and asked how we could get the fourth book published. The reply was that if enough copies of the first three sold, they'd consider it. Triangle Park was supposed to be a direct sequel to Jinx High and I very much want to know what happened next. If you want to read the series in chronological order (rather than published order), read:

1. Children of the Night
2. Burning Water
3. Jinx High

Please note that while this series does not have explicit sex scenes, due to the often quite gruesome murders that pop up in Burning Water, they are not very suitable for younger readers. They are still an excellent read.

I think it was a good continuation of the series so far. I really enjoy the character of Diana Tregarde, and it was interesting to have visited so many different types of magical traditions throughout the course of the series. As with all of the other books in this series, it was well-written, thoughtful and a fun read. I would recommend it. The only thing that I would wish is that the author would a) write more books in this series and b) make the timelines and cultural circumstances clearer. I think I mentioned this in a couple of other reviews that it's not always clear what time period you are in. I think it would be fun to see Diana now in the digital age. I think all of these books take place in the 70s and 80s, but again, it's unclear. Other than that, I have nothing but praise for this series.

This is the third book in the series of Diana Tregarde mysteries, and the best of the bunch. They are well crafted and the characters are interesting. It does help to have read the other books in this series, but the book stands on its own fairly well. The magic is handled in a believable fashion, and the action fast paced. I recommend this book for you.

I love the character Diana Tregarde, but this book was not as good as the previous two books by Mercedes Lackey. The juvenile drama was boring and the ending was very disappointing. I'm a bit perplexed by Lackey's writing in this novel. Her choice of dialogue was odd and totally different than the Diana Tregarde from the other two books. I loved Burning Water and Children of the Night. Those had great stories and dialogue.

I thoroughly enjoy this character and long for more! Mercedes's writing style is exciting and believable. She pulls me along with the story and I get totally enveloped in the adventure. Lots of twists and turns for Diana and the reader to figure out. Great stuff, keep it coming!

Love the Diana Tregarde series

A really good read for the Diana Tregarde fans. As with many of Mercedes Lackey's novels, their are threads in here that tie to several other stories. Yet the book doesn't depend upon you knowing or recognizing them. It's a good stand alone story in itself. I read the story originally in the 1990s when it first published but recently bought it again as a Kindle edition. If you like Urban Fantasy, then I think you'll find the Diana Tregarde character engaging.
good series
