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?

ADDICTIVE urban well written magical

Lost Talismans and a Tequila, by Annette Marie, delivered action, suspense, sibling trouble and passionate kisses. This is the seventh audiobook in the Spellbound series and holy misfired paintballs it was good.

Every time I dive into the urban fantasy world of the Guild Codex, I lose myself to the outside world. There are three series within the world, Spellbound, Demonized and Warped. All are available in kindle unlimited and all are on/coming to audio.

I once again listened to the audiobook narrated by Chris Dukehart. This time Teddy Hamilton performed the perspective of Ezra. The narrations for this series has been fantastic, and it’s my preferred method for devouring stories in this world.

Time is running out for Ezra. Our girl Tori and his friends Aaron and Kai are looking for a way to save him. Tori is hunting for a demon mage summoner and summoning book. Road trip! Aaron is with her as they go back to the site where it all began… only someone is following. Soon others will join including Kai and oh joy he’s brought his fiancee Makiko.  ?

The story started off slow then morphed into non-stop action, battles to the death, exciting events and twists that kept me listening into the wee hours. Forget savoring this series. I must devour every installment.

While Tori and friends are off battling, we spend some time with Ezra and his demon. Talks with his demon were interesting and this ties back with events we witnessed in the Demonized series.

This series has become heavily intertwined with the Demonized series and I recommend reading both in the order of their release date, bouncing between the two as I have done. It’s brilliantly done and has kept me on edge.

As we get closer to the series ending, the stakes have never been higher. Marie left us in a good place, even if we will have to wait for answers.

This series/world was made for audio, and I have loved Chris Dukehart as the voice of Tori and the characters. I appreciated Teddy Hamilton and his voice for Ezra, even if I was connected to Chris’s voice for him. These two narrators play well together from pacing to tone.

Listeners/readers looking for an action-packed urban fantasy series with humor, a touch of romance, unique skills and feisty endearing characters need to step into this world!

    I can not get enough of this series and am so glad I found it and the spin off. So sad they are both almost over but I’ve heard amazing things about Kit’s story so I’m glad we will still have something from this world!

    I really enjoy this series so far and am really excited for the series ender. I love how the different series intertwine. This sure was a action packed and engaging read. Glad to hear the audio versions are great too.
