Audio Book Review: Druid Vices And A Vodka By Annette Marie

Druid Vices And A Vodka
(The Guild Codex: Spellbound #6)
By Annette Marie

Narrator: Cris Dukehart
Length: 9 hours and 15 minutes

I've said it before, but sometimes I'm a bad person. I cheated on my twelfth grade math final, I've run countless yellow lights, and I gossip about how hot my kickass best friends are. (Good thing my job as a guild bartender doesn't require moral perfection.)

But there's bad, and then there's bad. And I'm not sure which applies to a certain dark druid/wanted criminal/reluctant friend of mine. His transgressions include black-magic dealings, kidnapping, and murder, and he's about to add "revenge-fueled killing spree" to his resume—if I don't stop him.

Should I stop him?

He and his nemesis are gearing up to tear each other apart, rogues and vultures are converging with their sights on the spoils, and the guilds that would normally stomp them into the ground are under attack. We're on the brink of an all-out criminal turf war, and my time to decide is almost up.

Who's the real bad guy ... and do I dare stand in his way?

My Review:

My heart can't take this kind of torture any longer! The Druid storyline was fun and rocky and all but I need a solution for Erza! At this point, I'm also not above begging. 

Tori was still her sassy and loyal self in this novel. There were quite a few things she lost along the way though. Some were replaceable, others not. Some people proved that they never deserved her loyalty and friendship in the first place (to them I say good riddance because I was never a fan). Things were finally moving forward with Erza and then this background plot point rears its ugly head. My heart hurts for him.

The guys were awesome though it seemed like everyone had a big problem of their own to deal with in this particular book. Everyone came together at the end to help deal with the big bad. Their problems still persisted in the background though and we only have two more books to solve them all.

The ending was what broke my heart. There needs to be a solution to Erza's problem. He's too precious and has lived too hard of a life to just have things end here. Can you tell I am and have always been Team Erza yet? 

Dear Annette Marie, please save Erza. 

The Audio Book:

The narration was great as always. The characters were all discernable and there was no background noise present throughout the audio book.

Monthly Recap: March 2020


March!

Oof! 2020 is proving itself to be another one of those end-of-the-world years! Things in Brazil didn't start to get scary until the second half of March due to the coronavirus. My city has shut down all nonessential business's and the population is encouraged to stay indoors as much as possible.

On a lighter note, I got quite a few books read even though my anxiety was starting to rear its ugly head after things got going with the coronavirus in my city. What a great time to be an introverted readaholic asocial butterfly!

*Thought Of The Month*
Since vampires can't get viruses maybe it'd be a good idea to
start thinking about turning say 50% of the population? #JustAThought

Books I Read & Listened
To In March

| Audio Book | eBook | eBook |
  • Dragons In Fire By Krista StreetThis series is SO good! It's not even over yet and I'm already hoping for a few spin-off novels/series for Logan's packmates! (My review is live here!)

  • Saving Angel By J. L. WeilI've realized that I sometimes have a habit of reading the synopsis of a book and buying it right away without much thought. This is yet another one of those books. (My review will be coming soon!)
  • Found By Frost By Terry Bolryder - I'm so glad I gave this book a chance! It blew what I was expecting to read about completely out of the water! (My review will be coming soon!)
  • Sin & Spirit By K.F. Breene - I'm yet again feeling pretty lukewarm about another book in this series. It was in no way a bad book but it didn't blow me or the story out of the water either. (My review will be coming soon!)
| Graphic Novel | Audio Book | eBook |
  • Witchblade (2017-) #18 - What an anti-climactic end to such an interesting series. I'm at a loss for words. (My review is live here!)

  • Redemption By Randi Cooley Wilson - Am I even reading the same book that everyone else has read? I'm truly starting to question my sanity at this point with all the glowing reviews this series has. (My review will be coming soon.

Book Review: Dragons in Fire By Krista Street

Dragons in Fire
(Supernatural Community #3)
By Krista Street

I’m kicking myself for being so trusting, but that trust led me to a whole new realm—a world I never knew existed.

Now that I know what I truly am, I must learn to control my powers so I can return to my life as a supernatural healer. Thankfully, I have an interesting, if unusual, instructor to help me along the way.

But focusing on my lessons proves challenging when a certain werewolf refuses to give me up.

Now, with Logan wanting to claim me while I’m struggling to learn how to exist in the supernatural community, my life grows increasingly chaotic.

But that’s nothing compared to what’s coming.

Little do I know, a threat looms over the entire community, and I’m destined to play a huge role in the war to come.

My Review:

This series is SO good! It's not even over yet and I'm already hoping for a few spin-off novels/series for Logan's packmates! I love the world the author created and how, with each novel, it becomes more and more intricate. This is what I want to see more of in paranormal romance novels.

Daria got better in this novel. She slowly grew into her powers and has proven to be capable of so much good and destruction (in the best way). She's not as gullible but she's still eating herself up inside due to the brainwashing her mother did on her telling her to dedicate her life to healing other people. Daria can tell destiny to go where the sun doesn't shine for all I care about destiny.

Logan showed a lot of who he is in this novel both in good and bad ways. The big secret he was hiding was what I predicted it would be. I'm glad Daria finally heard him out. I may not be happy with the situation but I'm glad they were able to talk about it. The next book will be dealing with that situation head-on, so I'm excited about what's to come next.

The big fight was not what I was expecting to happen. It still proved itself to be amazing and heartbreaking all at the same time. I really enjoyed the part Daniel played in this story and I hope to see him in future novels and spin-offs of this series. The ending was bittersweet because even though it was the end to a problem it was also the start of another possibly just as big problem. I'm so hyped for the next book!

My Favorite Quotes:

"You've ensnared his heart. Women have great power over men when that happens."

"It just wouldn't be home if something didn't try to kill us the second we arrived. "

"[...] Even I knew that sometimes wishes didn't come true [...]."
