Narrated by Iggy Toma, I was excited to slip back into the Guild Codex: Warped series with Rogue Ghosts & Other Miscreants by Annette Marie & Rob Jacobsen. Another case has Kit and his partner, Lienna hopping and scratching their heads. Action, suspense and magic await you!

As a former con-artist, I love a convoluted, mind-bending scheme as much as the next guy. But as a recently promoted MagiPol agent, I love it significantly less than that guy.
Especially when the life of a kidnapped teen hangs in the balance.
Between confusing orders and conflicting evidence, this whole investigation has me and my partner, Lienna, spinning in circles. Why is our boss keeping this case off the books? Why is our top suspect, the most notorious rogue in Vancouver, mired in contradictions? And why am I the only one who cares more about the victim than their own ulterior motives?
Everyone wants me to shut up and follow orders, but that’s not my style. I’ll do whatever it takes to save this kid—even if that means returning to my roguish roots
Can I just say I am enjoying the heck out of Kit, Lienna and the MagiPol unit? Well, I am! A kidnapping case involving a teen mythic with a prime suspect that doesn’t fit the profile has our duo busy. Their boss has them working this one off the books. Which has them wondering if someone in the precinct is corrupt?
Cameos from beloved characters and lots of page time with Zak will keep you listening into the wee hours. I love the dynamics, snark and interplay between partners Kit and Lienna. Kit keeps playing on the sidelines and Lienna has had enough. Fortunately, Zak and Kit’s interactions kept me from getting frustrated by the stalled romance/partnership.
While I always enjoy the cases or story that each installment of the Guild Codex offers, it is the unique characters, friendships and their interactions that are the real gem of this world. Each character is fleshed out with their own distinct personality and I am always excited when there is series crossover. I listened to The One and Only Crystal Druid first and was delighted to hear the backstory of what transpired between Kit and Zak.
Iggy Toma continues to narrate this series and does a fantastic job of capturing the personalities of Kit, Lienna and even Zak. I love that this tale is delivered from the male POV and hope to see more.
While each book/series is intended to work as a standalone, listeners will be cheating themselves. At the very least, begin with the first Warped audio co-written with Rob Jacobsen. The books are in Kindle Unlimited and can be purchased in audio format at a reduced cost.
The case wrapped up before Marie & Jacobsen left us with just enough of a cliffhanger to have us excited for the next Warped installment. If you haven’t discovered the world of the Guild Codex yet, you need to begin post haste. You won’t be disappointed.

It does sound like a good story, not sure about having a cliffhanger though. I might have to check it out myself at some point.
Each time I read your review of this series, the more I am tempted to visit this world you can’t stop raving about.
Each of your bubbly reviews convince me that I need to get on the stick with not just this series, but the whole universe of the books. 🙂
I’m soooooo late! She added so many books!
