Sara's Review: Demon Magic and a Martini (The Guild Codex: Spellbound #4) by Annette Marie
KINDLE UNLIMITED PUBLISHER: Dark Owl Fantasy Inc. RELEASED: April 12, 2019 GENRE: New Adult, Fantasy LENGTH: 314 pages FORMAT: eBook, Audible, Paperback
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, because who wants to risk life and limb to control the biggest bullies on the mythic playground?
Well, some people do, 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. FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS
As I stated in the review for book one in this series, I discovered The Guild Codex: Spellbound world after reading The Guild Codex: Demonized, which is in the same world. It is this book Demon Magic and a Martini that the two series collide. If you look at the reading order of the complete multiverse, you will see that. https://www.goodreads.com/series/279160-guild-codex-universe
I do recommend reading this in the multiverse order for complete immersion into the Guild Codex world. The Guild Codex: Spellbound is meant to be read first, for a complete and total understanding of the world Marie built.
In Demon Magic and a Martini, an unbound Demon is on the loose, and all of the guilds are asked to send their combat mages to help hunt the demon down. Including the Crow and Hammer.
Once again, this book was nonstop action from beginning to end with such great characters and ever-developing storyline. It had me on the edge of my seat. Tori and her three hot guys would be more than I could take.
I honestly don’t know how she hasn’t jumped one of them, LOL.
”There are two kinds of girls: those who’ve fantasized about a threesome with a pair of hot guys and liars.”
Then neither does she. I may have been right at this point with my earlier prediction on rooting for team Ezra. Which I still am.
I have been devouring these books so fast because I am absolutely in LOVE with these characters and this world. I am officially obsessed.
