Publisher's Summary

You know that squirmy sensation in your gut when you have no idea what you're doing and you're about to screw everything up?

Yeah, that feeling.

I thought I was a good judge of character, but recent events proved me very wrong. Now, in a brilliant demonstration of my newfound caution, I'm putting all my faith in a demon - a demon who's tried to kill me before. The squirmy feeling is making sense, right?

Unfortunately, I don't have any other options. Ezra's time is almost up, which means I need answers and I need them fast. So it's time to toughen up, pack my gear, and find me one of the most illegal, reviled, and scarce mythics out there: a demon-mage summoner.

And all I have to do is follow a demon's instructions on where to look. How could that go wrong?

Make sure to check out the companion series, The Guild Codex: Demonized, available now, and The Guild Codex: Warped, coauthored by Rob Jacobsen, available summer 2020.

Crushed it! Fastest moving out of the series.

I was late to the Guilded Codex: demonized, which I only finished a few days ago. If you have any interest in the demonized series start it now before Lost Talismans and Tequila as there is a little bit context missing. It is best to think of This book as Conclusion Part 1 of 3. (With one more book in each the codex and demonized) Mild spoilers: This book adds POV from Ezra. The change in narrator threw me off. To be clear Chris still does all the voices for Tories POV. Rather than raspy soft voice the new narrator sounds like a much older dude than Ezra but for me the shock wore off by the second Ezra POV chapter. I can only describe it has Jeff Bridges trying to sound young. While this is easily the most action packed book in both series, it is more about Torie and bringing her character development from the series to an end. The pay off is worth it. Part of the reason why I really liked this book was that it had the M/C multitask her own identity crisis while trying to achieve her objective. Specially when you are doing something that seems impossible it feels really relatable that it would cause her to question her own character. It can feel really scattered because of the First Person Narration. The book only leaves a few lose ends for the next book as far as bringing Robin and Tories' stories to a conclusion. One more mild spoiler: I really hope this book is alludings to a sequel or prequel about Darius, but it is made clear that we have only scratched the surface of stories for the Crow and Hammer and its guild master.

Tori is not my favorite character but...

This author is one of my absolute favorites but I cannot stand Tori. she is like a character from Shameless. she continues to make horrible choices and then has the audacity to be surprised when things go bad because of them. Not to mention she wants to be included in the magical world so bad but when it comes to actually making an effort to know more she acts like shes above it. Shes really judgmental and jealous when it comes to other women and is downright nosey (and pushy) when it comes to Kai and his family affairs. I continue to listen to the series because I do love alllll the other characters and I'm too deeply entrenched in the drama to quit now, how ever I'm really glad there is only one more book in her POV because I don't think I can handle her immaturity much longer. Rant over.

Dragging on this story line a little too long

I was really looking forward to this book, to see what would become of Ezra. This book seemed shorter than most, didnt seem to have the depth of the others and gave no real satisfaction at the end. We've had 2 books now essentially with the same driving conflict. It's time to wrap it up so we can move on to something else.

great series

I love the entire series. though we could have done without the male voice for Ezra with his thoughts. it was out of place and just didn't fit

Amazing

I love this series! It’s so well done and layered. Yet, you don’t have to read with the other series in order to understand. Such amazing talent. The narrators are wonderful! Thank you

Terrific addition to series!

Lost Talismans and a Tequila The Guild Codex: Spellbound, Book 7 By: Annette Marie Narrated by: Cris Dukehart, Teddy Hamilton I love this series and the demon series! Tory is not my favorite character but I enjoy the story. I enjoy the other characters much more! Lots of magic, evil power hungry people, demons, and creatures. Touch of romance with a moderate amount of action, and a lot of terrific fantasy! Great narration!

better than other reviews suggest.

I know some people didn't like Ezra's narrator but he did a fine job. having listened to this book I cannot wait to read the next Robin page installment. I'm really enjoying the interconnected 3 book series.

Another Great Installment!!

I loved this book don't get me wrong, but I found Ezra's POV severely disappointing. I was SO excited thinking I'd get to see the events Robin and Ezra shared from Ezra's POV... I know it makes sense that if this book originally came first, then the author wouldn't want to give away too much... but Ezra's parts were primarily all in his head, and only slightly more than boring. However, this does not mean that Ezra isn't a total badass!! He does a lot of growing in this book, and it shows magnificently in the last few chapters I continue to feel a lot of nothing towards Tori. I don't dislike her, but I don't totally like her either. While she can also be a badass, she makes a lot of selfish decisions 7 books later, and suffers almost 0 consequences, and experiences minimal growth. Though, I will say I think this book had the most growth for her character yet! I'm excited to see what comes next. Robin and Zylas are still my two biggest faves, and seeing Tori's storyline really start to clash with Robin's gets me excited for the final books.

Excellent

Another winner by Annette Marie. I adore this series and haven’t been bored by a single one. They keep your interest and don’t drag.
