This picks up a little while after the last book. MPD is looking for our girl and like the last book she is feeling out of sort and her insecurities are getting the best of Tori.
What threw me off a bit is that Tori before was a mixture of kickass and vulnerable. She made you believe this could just be the secret magic life you stumbled upon. This time not so much. She was more insecure and I think it let to actions she wouldn't have done before. Who lets strangers into their house? I don't care how drunk she was. This action leads her into trouble as usual but makes for exciting times. Most of the storyline was predictable until you get to the part abt a certain someone.
I wish there was clearer definition on who she liked. It's now coming off as a confused reverse harem. I'm so confused I am forget who I want her to end up with...almost. ha
Love that we get more of The Ghost and hope he continues to show up and we get a bit of a glimpse into the past of the guys. I wish the story focused a bit more on this. Story was a bit all over the place. If i could this would be more 3.5 than 4.
I am so glad that Annette Marie decided to go the route of episodic episodes for this series. While elements from each book crossover to the next in the series, each book has a self-contained plot. While there is enough information planted into the books to leave some mystery and plot points to grow on for future books, there are no cliffhangers. Marie is a truly skilled plotter. Her stories take on a life of their own. The construction of her stories is always incredibly clever and the basis of them is always unique. It is what I have come to expect from her stories and I have never been disappointed. I love that I never know what to expect from the plot and that I am always surprised by the outcomes.
The world-building is much the same as in the first two books. The world itself is set in our own world, but with a secret, underlying magic world underneath. I am really enjoying the interesting magic system that Marie has created for this series. We get to explore some more of the rules and exceptions to that magic system in this book.
The characters are the absolute best! They are so easy to love. They have perfect chemistry and they feel like a family. I love the deep underlying aspect of friendship in this series. The characters care so much for each other and will go to great lengths for each other in this sometimes dangerous mythic world. There is also a large aspect of family or found/chosen family. The guild is a family for those that are members and Tori has been lacking in this department for most of her life so the guild becomes that for her as well. The characters are all written with enough mystery about them and their pasts to make you wonder what the missing pieces are and how they may fit into the story in later books. I liked that Tori was going through some deep personal emotions. She has to face her fears that if she should lose her job at the guild then her new friends would be lost to her as well. She faces her abandonment issues from her past with a little help from Ezra. I liked seeing more of Kai in this book. A look at his past was awesome. I liked that Zak returned in this book. I love his character and this book just cemented my love for him. I also liked the parts with Darius. He is the leader of the guild and he is as sharp as a blade and has a big heart. I liked the tender moments with Ezra. Aaron is trying to decipher his relationship with Tori. And I liked the introduction of new characters that kept things interesting. Bottom line, Marie can write characters like no one else. They are always complex with unbelievable chemistry.
There wasn't as much romance in this book. Tori and Aaron are trying to sort out their feelings for each other, but I don't want to get into it much because...spoilers. Let's just say that I wasn't surprised by anything.
This series is certainly addicting. I definitely recommend this series to fantasy lovers that enjoy fast-paced plots, an original story premise, and characters that will make you laugh out loud. It is ever so easy to fall in love with these books. I can't wait for the next installment of this series, Demon Magic and a Martini, which comes out in April! (Oh god, it feels like forever!)
I also like the way the author is handling the romance so far: it seems realistic and applied with a light touch while the group dynamics are established but the possibilities are intriguing and I look forward to that aspect as well.
IMPORTANT NOTE: You probably could read this as a standalone but don't. You'd miss a great deal but most especially the two phenomenal books that precede this one!

The development of this story is incredible as predicted from Marie; Tori's continuing growth, the relationships she has formed from the start of the series and the entertaining, dark magic filled world Marie has created. Makes me wish it was April already.
The romance aspect in this story would make anyone swoon. I know Marie said this book is not a RH but you could definitely tell there are aspects of it in this story. Well with 3 gorgeous boys with mysterious pasts and a powerful, Rogue Druid I can see where that's hard for a girl. I just hope Marie doesn't play too hard on it and we finally get to see more development like we did with Aaron and Tori in the next book.
*Lifts whisky shot in the air* This was an amazing, magical, easy too read book/ series so far. Here is too Marie and the fast coming of April. *shots down Whisky*
Need the love interst to evolve into declaration from one of the heroes, other than Aaron i.e....
And it woukd be good to have Zak come into the Crow and Hammer's fold, as only Tori can make it happen...
