“With a satisfying blend of humor and horror, Zan and Austin is a must-read for Buffy the Vampire Slayer fans.”
Zan West has a strange power that only works on girls.
He doesn't know why he has this so-called “gift,” but it's killing his chances of ever getting a girlfriend.
Then he meets an older girl named Austin, and she's strangely immune to his power. Zan can't see her secrets, but he can't see her future, either. There's something she isn't telling him, and it's driving him mad.
Zan consults a powerful witch who offers him peace of mind in exchange for his power. What he doesn't know is this peace of mind comes with a big, bad heaping of death. The permanent kind.
NOTE: This book was originally published under the name "Poke" and then "Zan." The opening chapter was revised in October 2012 before the current name and cover. I hope you enjoy!
"Zan is a great narrator ... really likeable because he doesn’t mean to be completely clueless. Even though a lot of the events were quite serious in nature, viewing them from Zan’s perspective made even the worst problems seem surmountable. Especially in comparison to the horrible fate of having to kiss a smoker with a tongue ring."
