Publisher's Summary

Three months ago, I landed a job as a bartender. But not at a bar-at a guild. Yeah, the magic kind. 

I'm not a badass mage like my three smokin' hot best friends. I'm not a sorcerer or an alchemist, or even a wussy witch. I'm just a human, slinging drinks like a pro and keeping my non-magical nose out of mythic business. Seriously, I know my limits. 

So why am I currently standing in a black-magic ritual circle across from a fae lord? 

Somewhere behind me, my three mage friends are battling for their lives. Somewhere near my feet is the rogue witch I just knocked out with a stolen spell. And I have about five seconds to convince this very angry sea god not to shmoosh me like a bug. 

I'm pretty sure this wasn't part of the job description. 

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

Ghost returns

We know that Tori is impulsive, selfish, hard head, and reckless. And damnit she does not listen. I have a problem when a character, in this case Tori, is told to stay put and they don’t. It makes me grind my teeth. Tori’s abandonment issues will be the death of someone. She craves a sense of family. That is why she really wants to belong as a member of the guild and have some type of magic.

She was having a little pity party when she should have been paying attention. She got the guild committed to a job. It did not help that the witches who were requesting help, stroked her ego by hinting that Tori had influence with mages.

Tori’s physical safety is in jeopardy and all the guys, the guild and ghost, comes to her rescue. You can imagine the reactions of the guys when they first encounter ghost with her. Yep, it was a shit storm.

This story gives up information on Kai and a little history on the group. Other members of the guild, i.e. Darius have a more active role. Her brother makes an appearance. This provides and opportunity to see how the magic and regular communities work together.

Yea, there are the fights that we love from our guys. I love it when they open the car trunk and gear up. That is soooo badass. And ghost is the baddest. He does that melt into the darkness thing.

Aaron and Tori have some relationship issues to work out. For a woman who wants to belong, she has a problem with commitment issues.

Important rule: don’t try to enslave a fae

Not as good as before

Somehowv the story lapsed into teenage romance. Not exactly as good as before. Like it was rushed to finish or something...

More Fae are introduced 🤗

Book three of the series starts with a surprise visit from the magical feds. Within the first 30 minutes we find ourselves trapped between a rock and a hard place. The witches are trying to bind a Fae Lord and the Feds are closing in on the guild. Most of all, the crew is separated and must work closely while not actually together.

I really enjoy this series. Though it seems to be following a reverse harem set up, it hasn't gone completely in that direction. I do like that the love interest have stayed open. It allows us not to become too attached to any given Male. I'd prefer that she didnt date any of the main characters. Break that mold of girls having to fall for their friends. We are capable of having Male friends without always wanting something romantic.

There were a few eye-rolling moments when it came to Tori's decision making. It felt a bit off character. At least the Tori character that's been developing in the first few books wouldn't react to things as the Tori in this book. Where she was once brave and self sufficient this book shows a needy and whiny side of her personality. Even though the series starts off with her rooming with her brother, she was still independent and paying her way. In this book she feels that she NEEDS the guys and cant seem to focus.

Other than the set back in Tori's personality I found the book enjoyable enough but not at good as the first. I do like that we get more background information of the guys and that it seems legit. The author gives us believable information that doesn't seemed forced.

The narrator, Chris Dukehart, does a good job. My favorite voice of hers is Twiggy. The "Slap Back" scene really made me laugh... "Cause its funny!" 🤣😂

3 Stars 🌟🌟🌟- Good Book. I like the overall concept and it was delivered well. Most common ranking for a book I enjoyed and look forward to the next.

Enjoyable listen

I really enjoy the characters in this series, their is depth and intrigue in each one. Annette Marie is awesome, although I almost dropped a star on this one for pulling that fast one with Tory and Aaron 🤣

These books are like snack food!

Probably not good for me, terribly lacking in nutrition, but fun, shareable, and ultimately always added to the pantry. I am on to the next bag right now.

Teen Urban Fantasy

Always easy listening. Love the Zack character... aka Ghost aka Crystal Druid... total badass.. some parts didn't fit, like including the witch at the park for the fay summoning.. I understood why she was there... for the betrayal factor, but the 3 mages seem too independent to include her... small stuff.
I binged listened to 3 audiobooks in the series.. so far..
Funny Thing, Im not a girl teen, but a recently retired dude, but still enjoy this author

It gets better and better

An absolutely phenomenal series that gets better with every book in it. I love angsty characters, the love, the family... It comes with every thing a great should.
