Three Mages and a Margarita
(The Guild Codex: Spellbound #1)
Publication date: September 14th 2018
Genres: New Adult, Urban Fantasy
Broke, almost homeless, and recently fired. Those are my official reasons for answering a wanted ad for a skeevy-looking bartender gig.
It went downhill the moment they asked me to do a trial shift instead of an interview—to see if I’d mesh with their “special” clientele. I think that part went great. Their customers were complete dickheads, and I was an asshole right back. That’s the definition of fitting in, right?
I expected to get thrown out on my ass. Instead, they…offered me the job?
It turns out this place isn’t a bar. It’s aguild. And the three cocky guys I drenched with a margarita during my trial? Yeah, they were mages. Either I’m exactly the kind of takes-no-shit bartender this guild needs, or there’s a good reason no one else wants to work here.
So what’s a broke girl to do? Take the job, of course—with a pay raise.
Note: The three mages are definitely sexy, but this series isn’t a reverse harem. It’s 100% fun, sassy, fast-paced urban fantasy.
Annette Marie is the author of Amazon best-selling YA urban fantasy series Steel & Stone, its prequel trilogy Spell Weaver, and romantic fantasy trilogy Red Winter. Her first love is fantasy, but fast-paced adventures and tantalizing forbidden romances are her guilty pleasures. She lives in the frozen winter wasteland of Alberta, Canada (okay, it's not quite that bad) with her husband and their furry minion of darkness—sorry, cat—Caesar. When not writing, she can be found elbow-deep in one art project or another while blissfully ignoring all adult responsibilities.
I wasn't really sure how I would like this book, mostly because of the title. I thought it might be corny. The description and the fact that it clarifies that it's definitely an urban fantasy book made me give it a chance.
Also, when I requested to join this blog tour, I didn't realize that the author also wrote the Red Winter series, which I ZOOMED through last summer and ABSOLUTELY LOVED! I didn't realize this until I went to add the book on Goodreads and got really excited. I figure the author couldn't write that awesome series then turn around a year later and release a sucky book.
I'm really glad that I gave this book a chance! It was awesome!
When I first started reading this book, I liked Tori, the main character, almost immediately. She's awesome!
I definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes urban fantasy and is up for a fun, quick read!
Thank you to the author, the publisher, and Xpresso book tours for giving me the opportunity to be a part of this blog tour!
