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.)

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 is the best Michele Bardsley book I've read to date. Her Broken Heart, OK books are relatively lighthearted fun (I read them when I'm in the mood for mindless), but this book really shows the breadth of skill Ms. Bardsley had. This book is not light-hearted, but it is amazing. When I finished this book my first thought was 'I really loved that book!'

The characters are well planned and written, the emotions are easily conveyed, you can really feel Lucy's despair and hope, Gray was uber sexy and his turmoil and guilt were very strongly felt. The characters had a life to them that was evident in every page.

This book far surpasses any of her previous work

Michelle Bardsley is one of my favorite authors and I am glad that she has branched out into a new direction in her writing. This series is right up there with her other series and I will be looking for more to come.

In Never Again Gray drom the House of Dragon was set up to be a sacrafice so that his wife Kerren from the House of Raven and also a Rackmore Witch could keep all her riches. 10 years later he is still trying to get over the fact his ex had sent him to hell. All the while neglecting his duties as the Gaurdian of Nevermore. When Lucy, Kerrens baby sister shows up at his door asking that he marry her so she may obtain protection.

Without a penny to her name and cursed so she cant use her magic without suffering in the worst ways for 3 days she is forced to seek aid from Gray. Lucy has an amazing a giving heart. I could tell you more but I fear I would tell you way to much and ruin such an amzing book. I look forward to the next book later this year in the series called Now or Never.

If you are looking for a truly good book that will keep you reading and on the edge for more then this book is for you. As a avid reader and always in search of the next great book this book did just that. It was different then any other witch/wizard book I have read and I really liked they way it was unique and very entertaining. A must read.
