What’s a hardworking MagiPol agent need to do to get a little R&R?

Between Agent Söze, the treacherous Internal Affairs tyrant who’s taken over my precinct, and the super illegal sorcery my partner Lienna was hiding in said precinct—which is now missing—my usual routine of busting magical criminals has fallen apart in favor of hectic damage control.

But that went out the window too when a respected Guild Master was found dead. Agent Söze is trying to cover it up, which is all the reason I need to make solving the murder my top priority.

Except now Agent Söze is trying to arrest and/or kill me. Not entirely unexpected, but both dangerous and highly irritating.

With the clock ticking on the next mysterious Guild Master murder, Lienna and I have to find a way to prove Agent Söze is behind it all. We need rock-solid evidence to bring him down, which is kind of tricky when crooked agents, shady allies, and cutthroat assassins keep complicating matters.

And if we don’t get to the bottom of it fast, my next day off will be in the morgue as another corpse to be swept under the corruption rug.

KICKASS magical SUSPENSE urban

You’ll want to listen to this series in order, but I also recommend you start from the beginning of the Guild Codex Universe. You can find the chronological order: The Guild Codex Universe.

The story takes place a little after More Than a Little Warped. I recommend reading the novella first. Kit & Lienna are MagiPol agents. Agent Söze, an Internal Affairs bully, has taken over the precinct. Missing sorcery and accusations complicates things further. One could say their nemesis is evil.

Kit and Lienna are trying to solve the murder of a Guild Master, but Söze is trying to cover it up and they’ll need to stay one step ahead. The story was intense with plenty of action, near death moments and some twists. Including working with characters from the Demonized and Spellbound series. I loved it!

The romance is progressing, and it’s a slow-burn. While it sometimes can frustrate me, I love their chemistry and the strong friendship that is developing along the way. It feels genuine and I look forward to more.

The ending has left me excited for Mage Assassins & Other Misfits, which releases in September 2023. The authors set us up perfectly with hints of things to come. If you haven’t yet dipped into the Guild Codex universe, I highly recommend it. Perfect for fans of urban fantasy, paranormal suspense and unique, well-honed characters.

Iggy Toma narrates and did a wonderful job of bringing us the voice of Kit & the others. His pacing and tones added to the overall experience.
