Dark Arts and a Daiquiri by Annette Marie

The Guild Codex: Spellbound, Book 2

Synopsis: When I found myself facing down the scariest black-magic felon in the city, practically daring him to abduct me, I had to wonder exactly how I ended up here.

It all started when I accidentally landed a job as a bartender—but not at a bar. At a guild, populated by mages, sorcerers, alchemists, witches, and psychics. Good thing this lame-o human is adaptable, right?

Then my favorite guild members—three sexy, powerful, and intermittently charming mages—asked for my help. Did they want access to my encyclopedic knowledge of cocktails? Oh no. They wanted to wrap me up in a pretty ribbon and plunk me in the crosshairs of a murderous rogue to lure him out of hiding.

So that’s what we did. And that’s why I’m here. About to be kidnapped. Oh, and our grand plan for safely capturing said murderous rogue? Yeah, that completely fell apart about two minutes ago.

Why did I agree to this again?

Review: I loved the first novel and I was very curious to get into this one! I was very lucky to be able to read them the one after the other, although I must wait now for the third one… And that’s no fun.

Tori still does not have her papers approved, so she continues to work as if nothing had happened. But now, her three friends have a job offer for her. They want her to help them find a terrible mage who seems to have kidnapped a girl. Taking her courage with both hands, the young woman accepts, without imagining that she will eventually be abducted by the man. However, this kidnapping story could hide more than expected and our heroine could be surprised many times as we would!

I had another great time with the novel. Tori is always piquant, dynamic and does not have her tongue in her pocket (even if the situation is complicated). And how to resist all the characters that we love? I answer you immediately, I can not! We are also discovering new characters and creatures and I must say that I am even more eager to read more to find out what will happen now! The author has many original ideas and it’s a pleasure to delve into her stories!
