Demon Magic and a Martini (The Guild Codex: Spellbound #4)
by Annette Marie
What is it about:
When I first landed a bartending job at the local guild, I didn't know a thing about magic. These days, I'm practically an expert on the different magical classes, but there's one nobody ever talks about: Demonica.
Turns out they have a good reason for that.
My guild is strictly hellion-free, but some people will risk life and soul to control the biggest bullies on the mythic playground. And now a demon has been loosed in the city.
My three best friends are determined to slay it, but even badass combat mages are critically out-magicked. And that's not all. The monster they're tracking--it's not hiding. It's not fleeing. It's not leaving a trail of corpses everywhere it goes.
The demon is hunting too. And in a city full of mythics, it's searching for deadlier prey.
If we can't unravel the demon's sinister motivations, more innocent people will die, but finding the answers means digging into dark secrets ... and learning truths I never wanted to know.
What did I think of it:
This series is so much fun.
Annette Marie manages to create a perfect balance between suspense and humor. I love Tori and her three friends, and I very much enjoy the adventures they mange to fall into.
In this book we get more insight in Ezra's past -Ezra is my favorite of the three mages and this book only made that stick even more- and we learn a lot more about demons. They're nasty and dangerous.
As Tori gets more and more involved in the hunt for the demon she has to decide if she's wiling to go full in to the world of mythics or if there are some things she doesn't want to be involved in. I was on the edge of my seat to see where this story would go, and what decisions Tori would make. Voodoo Bride wants me to add that she was eager to find out if Tori and Ezra might finally kiss!
All in all this book is an awesome thrill ride that I happily boarded and was over much too soon. You bet I'll get my trotters on the next book as soon as it's available in print. There will also be a spinoff series that I must have as well.
Why should you read it:
It's an awesome and fun UF read!
