Magic, fantasy, and a snarky “pet” ogre.
Everyone is going to love the living breathing oxymoron of an intelligent ogre with a heart of gold (though you’d be best not to mention to him that you noticed it). Botobolbilian, who Vanessa insists on calling “Bobo” is just one of a full cast of fantastic characters.
I liked that the story started a bit slowly, so that we could get to know everyone and then the action sped up quicker and quicker. I don’t even remember driving to and from work the last few days!
I loved spending time in the world of Raen, the country of Aeristria, the city of Tolvade with the Coven spellweavers, hunters, summoners, the coven leaders and the Celestial One. There were great magical elements, snarky elements, and bits of humor.
Something I never do is annoy the authors with questions of when the next book is coming. I’m patient. Honest. I am. Well, this time I’m not. I can’t wait! I’m being “that reader” and asking, “when???” That’s how much I enjoyed this fun and suspenseful new world of magic.
Narration: Alex Goodman is a phenomenal narrator. He has the art of pause and voice characterization down pat.
My only criticism is a few mispronunciations that pulled me away from the story. There were three that were used more than once or twice. Often should sound like soften without the s. Glowering should rhyme with showering. Soot should not sound like suit. I would not let these mispronunciations stop me from listening to him or this series again. I only hope he will work on these few words.
Oh – I almost forgot – my new favorite curse is, “double dip a candlestick!”
Note: While I received this book as a gifted audiobook copy, my opinions are my own and are given freely.

On to the story itself...
I've been a follower of Nia Rose for a long time. I knew once I got my hands on this story I'd love it. And I did. Absolutely and truly loved it.
A unique world of magic and fantasy, Spellbounds and Hellhounds takes you alongside the journey of Vanessa - a witch who desires to be promoted in the ranks of her coven. Powerful, sassy, but a little clumsy, Vanessa strives for more out of life, and with her sophisticated and witty ogre partner Botobolbilian, "Bobo" for short, she is determined to prove herself.
When an ancient evil arises, it takes the combined strength of Vanessa, Bobo, and their friends to face it.
Nia Rose writes about a magical world filled with brilliant characters so beautifully and elegantly, I was enchanted from the first sentence. Out of everything in this book, the one thing I loved the most were the interactions between the characters. Bobo is by far the funniest ogre I've ever seen!
In the end, all I can say more is that this is a wonderful start to what is no doubt going to be a fantastic series by a fantastic author. Five Stars!
