Audio Book Review: Hunting Fiends for the Ill-Equipped By Annette Marie

Hunting Fiends for the Ill-Equipped
(The Guild Codex: Demonized #3)
By Annette Marie

Narrator: Cris Dukehart
Length: 8 hours and 28 minutes

I thought I understood power.

My parents taught me that magic attracts equal danger, and everything I've seen since becoming a demon contractor confirms it. I've witnessed how power twists and corrupts--and I've tasted power no human should wield.

I thought I knew greed.

Ambition and avarice drove my family into hiding. My parents died for someone else's greed. I've never hunted anything in my life, but now I'm hunting their killer--with my demon's help.

I thought I'd seen evil.

But with each step closer to my parents' murderer, I'm uncovering a different sort of evil, piece by hidden piece. I've stumbled into an insidious web that silently, secretly ensnares everything it touches. My demon and I came as the hunters...

...but I think we might be the prey.
________
Author's Note: The Guild Codex includes two series, Demonized and Spellbound, which can be read and enjoyed all on their own; however, this book contains spoilers for Demon Magic and a Martini (Spellbound #4). If you were thinking about giving Spellbound a try, I recommend reading it first.

My Review:

I really, really, really enjoyed this book! Everything is falling apart but I have faith that the author knows what she's doing. This author sure knows how to weave a story and make it stick to you like glue. 

Robin is sweet but at the same time kick*ss. The relationship she maintains with Zylas is incredible and complex. I like how she blushes even when the wind blows too hard. She's adorable and Zylas has become her rock to a degree in these past few books.

Zylas is awesome! He's been slowly learning human customs and it's finally showing. He has a very calculating side to him and I love how he's using it to help Robin. Also, let's rejoice at THOSE scenes! I didn't expect it to happen but it did and I'm not crying, you are!

The one thing I disliked about this book was how the author had to backtrack and replay events from Robin and Zylas's point of view for quite a bit of the novel. It was still exciting but I wanted to story to move long even farther not be stuck catching up to the latest Guild Codex: Spellbound book.

I loved how the depth of Robin and Zylas's relationship evolved, especially at the end! I can't wait for the last book in this series. It'll definitely be one of those books where I'm sad to say goodbye. 

The Audio Book:

The narration was fantastic! There were no strange noises in the background and all the character's were discernable from each other.

Monthly Recap: July 2020


July!

I have a very bad relationship with the month of July. Things always seem to go wrong during this month. I also hate the number 7 for other reasons I won't get into. Stange, I know. So this month went as well as can be expected. I got a lot of books read (more accurately I listened to a lot of books). I was approved for a few comics on Netgalley which was awesome! My eyes are still making me go through hell on a daily basis though. I think I'm going to have to make that ophthalmologist appointment during the pandemic after all because it's getting hard to be a human being with the way my eyes are getting. Here's to a better August!

Books I Read & Listened
To In July

| eARC | eARC | Audio Book |
  • Fangs By Sarah Andersen - This was SO adorable! I usually love Sarah Andersen's books and this one was no exception! (My Review Is Live Here!)
  • Frankie Comics By Rachel Dukes - This was SO cute! I'm not a cat mom but I do have a dog. While he doesn't climb on tables and whatnot a lot of these situations still rang true for me! (My Review Is Live Here!)
  • Alpha Night By Nalini Singh - I've enjoyed books in this series in the past and as much as I wanted to also love this one that was not the case. This book was interesting enough with the author's incredible powers of world-building. (My Review Coming Soon!)
| eBookAudio Book | eARC |
  • Fae Kings Vengeance By Layla Harper - This book was SO bittersweet! It's the end of Kyra and Rogar's story but it's not the end of the series. I adore the world the author built and I'm looking forward to future books from other character points of view. (My Review Is Live Here!)
  • A Quick & Easy Guide to Consent By Isabella Rotman - This book is fantastic! This should definitely be taught in schools or be included in a summer reading list of some sort. Heck, there are a lot of grown adults who need to read this book and educate themselves on consent. (My Review Is Live Here!)

  • Once Burned By Jeaniene FrostThis is a reread and boy does this book bring back memories! I used to love Vlad in the Night Huntress series. (My Review Coming Soon!)
  • Twice Tempted By Jeaniene Frost - The story was so engaging! This author's writing style has gotten better with every book she's written and it's no different for this series so far. (My Review Coming Soon!)

  • Bound By Flames By Jeaniene Frost - It seems like I was very harsh on this series during my first read-through. (My Review Is Live Here!)
  • Pestilence By Laura ThalassaThe moral quandaries embedded in this novel while trying to redeem a villain proved to be very interesting. Though I understand what this novel tried to do it wasn't enough to convince me to put aside my morals. (My Review Coming Soon!)

Audio Book Review: Rage and Ruin By Jennifer L. Armentrout

Rage and Ruin
(The Harbinger #2)
By Jennifer L. Armentrout

Narrator: Lauren Fortgang
Length: 16 hours and 38 minutes

Dangerous secrets and forbidden desires lead to shocking consequences… Don’t miss book two of the fantastical Harbinger trilogy from #1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout.

Half-angel Trinity and her bonded gargoyle protector, Zayne, have been working with demons to stop the apocalypse while avoiding falling in love. The Harbinger is coming…but who or what is it? All of humankind may fall if Trinity and Zayne can’t win the race against time as dark forces gather.

As tensions rise, they must stay close together and patrol the DC streets at night, seeking signs of the Harbinger, an entity that is killing Wardens and demons with no seeming rhyme or reason. Forbidden to be with each other, Zayne and Trinity fight their feelings and turn to unusual sources for help—the demon Roth and his cohorts. But as deaths pile up and they uncover a sinister plot involving the local high school and endangering someone dear to Zayne, Trin realizes she is being led…herded…played for some unknown end. As anger builds and feelings spiral out of control, it becomes clear that rage may be the ruin of them all.

My Review:

What a rollercoaster of emotions! This is the first book that's made me tear up this year. I need the next book in this series as soon as humanly possible! There were so many highs and lows and even more wrench-your-heart-out lows.

Trinity has a good head on her shoulders. She tries her best to be self-sufficient and strong but knows when to ask for help. I appreciate her wanting to resolve the conflict that came up between her and Zayne like rational human beings by using their words. She's very mature and I love that.

Zayne went from sweet to a slight douche bag and right back to sweet and understanding. My heart didn't know what to believe in this novel. It hurt to experience all their ups and downs when I just wanted to hug them and tell them they would be okay.

One of the best parts of this book turned out to be Roth! I love his witty banter with Trin. I really enjoy him as a character. This book really convinced me that I never had a problem with Roth. I just really disliked having to be in Layla's head all that time.

The biggest twist at the end had me tearing up. I was going to flat out refuse to believe that I had read that part in the first place. I was going to metaphorically burn these books out of my mind if the author had gone along with it. On that note, I'm SO SO SO glad she didn't! I want to know what happens next!

The Audio Book:

The narrator was amazing! All the characters were distinguishable from each other. There were no strange noises in the background to distract from the story.
