I've said it before, but sometimes I'm a bad person. I cheated on my twelfth grade math final, I've run countless yellow lights, and I gossip about how hot my kickass best friends are. (Good thing my job as a guild bartender doesn't require moral perfection.)
But there's bad, and then there's bad. And I'm not sure which applies to a certain dark druid/wanted criminal/reluctant friend of mine. His transgressions include black-magic dealings, kidnapping, and murder, and he's about to add "revenge-fueled killing spree" to his resume—if I don't stop him.
Should I stop him?
He and his nemesis are gearing up to tear each other apart, rogues and vultures are converging with their sights on the spoils, and the guilds that would normally stomp them into the ground are under attack. We're on the brink of an all-out criminal turf war, and my time to decide is almost up.
Who's the real bad guy ... and do I dare stand in his way?
Druid Vices and a Vodka by Annette Marie is sixth in the Spellbound series and part of the Guild Codex world. Dark, intense and enlightening, Marie pushes Tori to the limits as she tries to save those she cares about.
Druids, demons, summoners, witches and more await you in this action-packed, character driven urban fantasy series. Our protagonist is a student, a bartender, and a witch. (well not really a witch, but don’t tell the Guild). Tori is a member of the Crow and Hammer, and she is desperately trying to figure out ways to help Ezra. Ezra is bound to a demon and doesn’t have much time left. She seeks out Robin (A summoner and the protagonist of the Demonized series) but neither trusts the other and gads I wish they would.
In the meantime Zak, aka the Ghost, is in trouble. Tori enlists her friends to help save him. What follows ripped my heart out, made me scream and kept me on edge. Tori is kickass and loyal to a fault so it was painful to see her struggle, but gads the girl is clever.
If you are looking for a fresh, addictive urban fantasy, I cannot recommend these enough. Of course, as with most UF, listened to them in the order of their release. While this installment was darker in tone, Marie still allowed for humor, tender moments, and character growth.
Cris Dukeheart is the voice of the series and these characters. She does such a stellar job of capturing their emotions and the tone of the moment. I cannot imagine not listening to this series.
While threads wrapped up, this ended on a note that left me wishing I had the next installment in my hands.Addictive and action-packed, you'll want to grab your earbuds and listen to Druid Vices and a Vodka by Annette Marie #audiobook #UrbanFantasy Click To Tweet
