Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Excellent world building, original concepts, and a compellingly dark atmosphere mark this slightly uneven series debut. Nevermore, Tex., is a very magical small town. House of Dragons wizard Gray Calhoun is Nevermore's powerful Guardian, a vital role he's neglected since his traitorous wife sacrificed him to a demon. When his former sister-in-law, equally powerful but destitute and curse-laden House of Ravens witch Lucinda Rackmore, shows up and begs for his help, hell is unleashed in grand fashion. Gray and Lucinda's sexual tension simmers along nicely for several chapters before boiling over. The story's beginning and middle are well written, well paced, and breathtakingly sinister. The wrapup, however, seems short and forced, despite some interesting developments. The extremely dark tone may surprise fans of Bardsley's more lighthearted works (Cross Your Heart, etc.) and will certainly attract new readers. (Mar.)

Format: Kindle Edition
reasons to like this book
1. female protagonist was very likable and i really felt sorry for her circumstances.
2. the town itself was like another character...very small town with a mystical undercurrent / called a goddess fountain.
3. if like wiccan parallel universes with the Goddess being the main religious entity.
4. satisfactory ending with a surprise twist and the main ending wrapped up the plot but left an opening for future other couples being the stars.
5. there is some world building but no real description of how they use their magic.

reasons not to like the book
1. the chemistry just wasnt there for me... the main couple got together because of dire circumstances... not related to love.
2. the towns people... i just didnt really identify with them and when the POV changed to them often i would lose interest.
3. the bad guy was just not that evil and seemed a light weigt.

the premise and set up was outstanding but the the romance was a little too sweet and sappy for me. i also wish there was more descriptions of magic using instead of just saying i used magic and did a spell.

Never Again by Michelle Bardsley
Paranormal Romance- March 1st, 2011
4 stars

Lucinda Rackmore is witch from the House of the Raven. She is on the run and looking for help. Lucy has finally journeyed to the magical town of Nevermore. It is here she hopes to ask her ex-brother-in-law and wizard, Gray Calhoun to marry her so that she can be under his protection. However, he still has a grudge against her family since her sister betrayed him and literally took him to hell and back. So she isn't surprised when he says no. Her life is certainly dismal due to the fact that as a Rackmore, her entire line has been cursed since an ancestor made a pact with a demon for power in the past.

But trouble is brewing in the town of Nevermore and Lucy soon discovers herself in the thick of things. There's an evil plot to undermine the power base in Nevermore. Lucy finds herself trying to save a young girl and is caught in another curse. But surprisingly Gray comes to her rescue and proposes marriage. But what will she do when she find herself falling in love?

This is a fun and clever story set in a magical and quirky little town. This is the first book in a series called the Wizards of Nevermore and I think it will be a hit with paranormal fans who love humorous stories with surprising twists. The heroine is courageous and sympathetic. I liked how she gave the hero a much needed kick in the pants. Gray is more of a beta hero, who was disappointed in love and transforms when Lucy comes. She not only changes him but also the town. I enjoyed how Lucy breathes new life and rejuvenates the town and Gray. I also was intrigued by the different Houses (Dragon, Raven, Wolf, Shark etc.) which each have their own personalities. I can't wait to read about all of the them!

Bright and mischievous, this is great book to take your mind off your worries.

As a fan of urban fantasy, I tend to get paranormal romance books recommended to me, despite the fact that I'm not really a fan of romance novels. Just to be clear, this books is in no way urban fantasy; nonetheless, I was pleasantly surprised with the book. On a whim, I decided to give this a try, since it was generally getting very positive reviews.

I ended up being glad that I did. Characters are well-developed and have detailed back-stories, and there's plenty of world-building that takes place. Though a large storyline consists of romance, there's a strong plot that exists beyond an excuse to get the two main characters together. Strangely enough, the book contains one of my least-favorite plot devices ever (the two characters absolutely must get married in order to protect someone/save the world/etc!), but though the author toes the cliché line a couple of times, she never actually goes over it. Though the rest of the author's novels look a little too romance-y for me, I plan to keep my eye out for the next book in this series.

This was a darker novel than I expected form this particular author. What novels of Ms. Bardsley's that I have read are usually light fluffy and funny. "Never Again" had much darker themes and was truly an interesting and absorbing read.

Magic is the norm and magical people are quite common. Be sure to read the very beginning of the novel, which explains all about the origins of the Magicals and the Mundanes.

Lucy has come to Nevermore Texas to meet with her ex -brother-in-law Gray and to ask him to marry her. Gray sends her away with no help. You see she is running from a curse her ex-lover has put on her and needs Gray's strength as a Wizard to protect her. Gray was once married to Lucy's sister Kerren and killed by her. Yes, you heard correctly, Kerren brought him to Hell and killed him. Now he spends his days miserable and alone. He is the Guardian Wizard for this town in Texas, yet he is derelict in his duties. However, certain harsh truths are soon put forward to Gray and he goes searching for Lucy to give her a little help and here the real story starts.

The characters you are supposed to like and empathize with are written so that is exactly what you do. The characters that you are supposed to dislike are written with the same depth. No nuance is skipped. Once you start the book, you are quickly sucked into the story and the murders that start taking place. Ms Bardsley has a fine time having us try to figure out just who is behind all the bad things happening and I was a little surprised to find out who it was.

You can see quite clearly that this is a novel meant to set us up for the rest of the series, so you do get a lot of information on secondary and tertiary characters.
