Look – being boring was definitely not my scene. I was ready for gulp, ciggies, and cutting class – any day of the week. And I was fine. Totally fine. Until I met him. The tattoo artist. Christian Lunatic. He told me life as I knew it would forever change…. Of course, I didn’t believe his ridiculous statement for one second…until I found both my parents dead. And suddenly, all these insane family secrets and lies begin to surface – and I am left with no choice but to run the streets of San Francisco’s seedy side to find out the truth about my parent’s death. …And I feel like I am going crazy…. But the truth of it all.. is that I can make you crazy… because you see…I must steal the sanity of mortals for my own survival. My name is Myla Su Blackbird and me and my kind….are The Lunatics.
If I had to chose one adjective to describe this read it would be FUN! Well, if you are into adventures! This book is so much fun! I felt like I was actually walking down the streets of San Francisco, getting into all kinds of shenanigans! But I think its also incredibly beautiful - the thought of a coven of witches whose sole job is to "fix" people (into delirium) - is just amazing. Digged Christian Lunatic but I cant wait to meet the androgynous Deadorian at Laurels Asylum in Louisiana!

This is such a great read. I really liked Myla's voice and her view of life and people - she is a dreamer like most of us, but stuck in a dark place (ironically enough created by her own mind - isn't that often the case!!) - she doesn't even know what she cares about until its gone - and suddenly, she is so aware of her solitude - haven't we all been there some time or other. This book, to me, is dark, witty, and an an enjoyable read...yeah...odd combination - this author has some kind of imagination - ...

Super fun read. The minute you open the book the author takes you into her world and holds your hand tight right up until the cliffhanger end. Now I really want to go to San Francisco and walk the streets looking for The Lunatics.
Vertigo spirals, alternate lives, a touch of magic, characters you wish you could meet in person! I've read a lot of YA, and i have to say that this is a fresh outlook on the "villan." Forget vampires, witches and warlocks. The grim reaper's got competition. Hooray for the Lunatics
I looooove Myla's voice. She is such a kick-ass character. And can I just say THANK YOU for writing a book that wasn't about vampires and the tired-old witches?! OMG! Stealing peoples sanity? Really?? The book is such an easy read because Myla's voice is amazing!!!

Here's the deal with me... I buy a lot of books, read the first few chapters,... and that's about it. To put it plain and simply, I get bored, really bored, really fast. Twilight, Hunger Games, The Notebook, to name a few. I truly thought I just didn't like reading.The Lunatics proved that to be wrong!!! I could not put it down!! I am a mother and wife,... so that makes me pretty busy, but every "free" moment I had, I was reading The Lunatics on my little iPhone!!It is exciting from BEGINNING TO END!!! Otherwise, I wouldn't have finished ...
I have to say that I usually don't read a book in one afternoon- BUT, it was really crazy I could not put my book down I enjoyed this book from the beginning to the end. The characters were really unique..

Def a good read. Put on your list for 2013 if you enjoy the paranormal, the romance and a bit of bad girl!
I think this is the author’s first book – (I have to admit I bought the book because the author’s name was so different! lol!) – I hope she writes a sequel to this! Its just cool – its weird – different – lovely. Authors are supposed to have imagination – Seven N Blue surely delivers.Myla is not your average “pushover” (i think some of you know who I’m talking about!) – Myla is human. All complete with an enormous ego (and an – all unmentioned insecurities) She feels misunderstood – and somehow she pushes everyone away – ...

“This is not your average book about magic! These characters are dark, conflicted, and sexy. Myla is a character whose style and bravery and tempered by her confusion about the crazy turns her life is taking. The book is full of action, magic, and a little mystery, and the plot is full of surprises–great book!”
"In a genre previously dominated by vampires and other pop supernatural icons, the author has crafted something different and original set in a borderland somewhere between the realms of sanity and madness."
