Review ~ Entertaining!
Slaying Monsters for the Feeble - Annette Marie

Book source ~ Kindle Unlimited

 

Robin Page loves books, baking, and staying out of the limelight. However, having a demon contracted to her kinda makes that last thing hard to accomplish. Especially since her contract with Zylas is totally illegal and if anyone finds out she would be executed. A demon contractor is supposed to have complete control over their demon. Robin does not. Not even a little. But they are bound together and he is sworn to protect her and she…well, she bakes him cookies. I know. It’s ridiculous (and actually kind of hilarious) and if you had read the first book you’d know all about this. So, go read it.

 

Anyway, Robin is trying to find a way to send Zylas home, back to the demon world, but she is a complete demon novice. It’s taking awhile. And Zylas is getting impatient. In addition, she is trying to find her mother’s grimoire, last seen with her despicable uncle. On top of all this, there’s trouble in town and Robin & Zylas manage to land in the middle of it. Thank goodness they belong to the Crow and Hammer because Robin could really use some friends right about now. Though we don’t really get to see much friend making in this book, I’m hoping it’s coming soon. There’s everything in this book that I love from the other connected series: magic, humor, danger, a great world and awesome characters. If you’re looking for a series to fall into then this and Spellbound are it.

The Alchemist and an Amaretto - Annette Marie

Book source ~ Kindle Unlimited

 

Tori Dawson is a bartender extraordinaire. But her place of employment is no ordinary pub. The Crow and Hammer is a guild for magic wielding people and Tori is human. But only a few people know that. Because otherwise she’d be booted to the curb. The mythical community believes she is a witch and, come Hell or highball, she’s going to keep it that way.

 

It’s nearly Christmas and Tori has been invited to visit Aaron’s family estate. Tori doesn’t particularly like family events, but Aaron’s one of her best friends and Ezra and Kai, her other best friends, and Sin are going, so she allows herself to be dragged along. Good thing, too. There’s evil shenanigans going on at Sinclair Academy and family mansion and Tori is essential to putting a stop to it. However, things are also busting loose regarding Ezra and Tori will never be the same.

 

Wow. There is so much going on, but it’s never overwhelming. Tori and her buddies are going up against something really nasty with big sharp pointy teeth. And then there’s the thing with Ezra. You know, the demony thing. Needless to say, it’s quite an eventful Christmas. Lots of action and danger and magic as well as the usual humor. I love this series so much and this edition to it does not disappoint.

Taming Demons for Beginners - Annette Marie

Book source ~ Kindle Unlimited

 

Robin Page lost her parents to a tragic accident and now she lives with an uncle and others who seem to hate her. All she wants is her inheritance so she can move on with her life. But her uncle is stonewalling her. Robin has no idea why. So she starts snooping. And that’s when she discovers the demon in the summoning circle down in the library. Things get real interesting after that.

 

Since I love the connected series, The Guild Codex: Spellbound, so much I had to check out this new series. And I am not disappointed. Robin is a weird combination of scaredy cat and plucky nerd. The demon is vastly intriguing. And there’s so much about demons that I haven’t yet seen in the other series, so there’s new ground to cover in a world I already love. The two series mesh together very well. I love the characters, the world, and the storyline so much I already read book 2 (review upcoming). Fans of smart and sassy urban fantasy should really enjoy this one.

Dark Arts and a Daiquiri - Annette Marie

Book source ~ Kindle Unlimited

 

Tori Dawson is working as a bartender at the Crow and Hammer. But it’s not just any bar – it’s a guild. For magic users. And she is human. Completely human. Not a lick of magic in her. However, she can earn some money there while her employment paperwork makes it through the red tape that is the MPD before they kick her human non-magical ass out the door. It’s while they are waiting that her three mage buddies decide to ask her to help them with a job. They want to use her as bait for a high value bounty named The Ghost. A little uneasy, but trusting in her magical friends, she agrees. And that’s when things go spectacularly south.

 

Tori, oh, Tori. The things you get yourself into. Book 1 was entertaining and book 2 does not fail in that aspect. There’s humor, hotness, magic, and danger. Plus, a new character is introduced – The Ghost. He’s quite an interesting guy and totally yummy. I love the story, the characters, and the world. I’m practically breaking my arm patting myself on the back for finding this gem of a series. Highly entertaining and just what I love. Stay tuned for Book 3’s review! Because I completely devoured each book that’s out there. A literary glutton? Who, me?

Three Mages and a Margarita - Annette Marie

Book source ~ Kindle Lending Library

 

Tori Dawson has lost yet another waitressing job due to her quick temper. To make matters worse, her reputation has spread so that she’s unlikely to find a job anywhere downtown. As she’s leaving a café after being turned away, a sheet of paper with three job listings blows right into her face. The first two jobs aren’t appealing, but the third job is for a bartender. Not something she’s ever done, but at least she’s familiar with how to do it. It’s in a not so great part of town, but no too deeply into the bad side so she goes to apply. And is hired. Unfortunately, she has no idea that the Crow and Hammer isn’t just a bar. It’s a guild. For magic users. And that’s when Tori’s life gets very interesting.

 

Omg, what fun this book is! Tori is a great character and the people she meets are just as interesting. The world is fascinating, the plot decent, and there’s humor, too. I totally enjoyed myself with this one. So much so that I went and gorged myself on all the books in the series as well as the two off-shoots connected to it. So be prepared for many more reviews for this new-to-me author and this world of magic, humor, and danger.
