I am reviewing this after having read the whole series. I must have picked up and put down Magic Bites a couple of times as it just didn't catch my interest. I keep hearing such great things about it though that I kept trying. Finally a year or two later I had it when I had no other books to pull my attention away and I am glad I kept at it. This turned out to be an AMAZING series, that I totally loved and mourn the conclusion of the series. By the end of the book it had my interest and book 2 and the rest I couldn't read fast enough (the only positive of my procrastination is that all books were out by the time I got into them) and fell in love with all the characters. if you are struggling with this book as I was, trust me. it gets WAY better.

Ilona Andrews writing style flows so smoothly and their world building is amazing. I have now read everything I could get my hands on by this wonderful husband/wife writing duo. Rene Raudman does a wonderful job as the narrator and I am glad she continues to voice the rest of the series.

I absolutely loved this series. I couldn't stop laughing out loud or grinning like a loon through-out this book. Willa was a great character who dealt with her "curse" with good humour. Her interactions with the Abcurse brothers had me rolling in laughter. High praise for this series. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to it.

The Narrator Vanessa Moyen has quickly joined my list of must listen to Narrators.

Of the 3 books this is the only one I liked. it didn't have the romantic interest (Reed) being a bully, aggressive total A-hole to Maddy. I really liked Maddy.
The Narrator, Marie Cailendo did a good job. I wish I hadn't wasted a two credits on the other two books. I have never disliked any books as much as them.

Great second book

I am enjoying the series and can't wait to find out what happens next. Loving her group of friends and Lincoln.

Vanessa Moyen is killing it as the narrator and makes it easy to tell who each character is by the voices she gives them.

I enjoyed this series, especially the first 3 books, but admit to being glad it ended at book 4 as I don't know if I would have continued to read it after that. In the 4 years that passed for Brielle Atwater I saw no growth. She was supposed to be this great fighter yet waited for her blade to tell what moves to make to take out the enemy. My biggest annoyance though was I grew so tired of hearing how she was always saying "oh yeah I forgot" Geez she even forgot she was fighting Lucifer at one point. really, you forgot the whole point of the series? I found myself rolling my eyes at her by this last book. Thankfully this didn't start to bug me until this last book and I enjoyed listening to the first 3 books. Would love to know more about the human school Grace was running and how everybody else fares after the end of this book.

Vanessa Moyen is a new narrator for me, and I am glad to have listened to this series because of her. She does a fantastic job and really brought the story to life. I will be looking for more books read by her.

All in all it was a good series and I enjoyed it once I was able to get past Brielle's forgetfulness.

I loved this series, Willa made me laugh out loud so many times. Loved the way the Abcurer’s were with her and how the whole story wrapped up.

The Narrator, Vanessa Moyen, did an amazing job. Will listen to other books by her.
