I love this series so I am bummed to say I was really disappointed in this book. It was so slow and boring that I had to force myself to pick it up. Usually it's the opposite. The last 10 pages made the previous 194 worth agonizing over though. The ending made me excited to read #7 when it comes out. ...more
The Flooze
Part Mission Impossible, part Lord of the Rings, No Quest for the Wicked takes our heroes on a hectic search through NYC. Their goal is to recover a powerful jewel before it falls into the wrong hands. Unfortunately, it's the sort of piece that gives even the well-intentioned a hankering for world domination.

In these last two books Swendson has moved away from larger story arcs, instead letting her characters' evolution become the running thread. I prefer this, as I've always felt Katie and Owen

This has been the least favorite. Still humorous and easily read, but it was a bit slow going. The characters are fun, but I'm always wishing for them to have a bit more or have gone a bit further in their relationship. Still a fun story and will continue to read. ...more
While I did really enjoy this book, it wasn't as enjoyable for me to read as were a few of the earlier books in this series. By the time I finished it, I actually felt sort of burned out. (And no, my feelings are in no way affected by my having finished the wonderfulness that is The Others/The Meg shortly before starting this book.) Why you ask? Well, I'll get to that. . .

We open in New York, where Katie is trying to surprise Owen with breakfast in the manuscript room at work. The surprise sort
Yeah this one was bad. I decided after this book to just stop the series. The repetitiveness and the utter stupidity of the main character just got on my last nerves. The last book was fairly short and this one was longer, but honestly the author could have cut out a lot of scenes and I would have been okay with that.

in "No Quest for the Wicked" we have Owen getting used a world in which he no longer has magic. Katie is bored just working in sales now as an immune. When Owen and Katie are given

Katie and Owen are after a magical brooch and end up playing hide-n-seek in NYC.

What I enjoyed:
* Katie and Owen's interactions
* Katie's grandmother is a hoot
* Earl the elf

What could have been better:
* This book dragged on and was very repetitive in the chases
* Mimi is back

When I read the first book in the Enchanted Inc. series, I was immediately addicted. It was the same with the second, third and fourth book. After that, I thought the series was finished. You can imagine my surprise when I found out a few months ago, that there were going to be a fifth and a sixth book. Unfortunately the fifth book wasn’t as great as its prequels and the sixth book was even worse.

Now that MSI defeated Spellworks and they have no other companies to compete with, Katie doesn’t ha

I couldn't decide whether to go with the 3 that I thought this book was or give it a 4 because I love the series so much and am interested to see where the twist at the end of this one takes the series.

Owen and Katie are back doing what they do best, working together to save the world from magical mayhem. Where this book suffered for me was that the entire thing takes place in one day. We miss out on seeing many of the supporting characters that I love because Katie never goes home or has any i

Despite having high hopes for having a more substantive and educated reading list in 2017 (I mean compared to the last couple of years...I don't want to set expectations to high...and yes I'm going to blame recovering from brain trauma for the fairly non-challenging reading materials I've been happily devouring...and not the fact that I grew up watching Mork and Mindy and haven't really expanded my entertainment experience rations in the intervening decades), I started 2017 off with yet another ...more

At some points it got too much since the situation was crazy as hell and enemies would appear all the time. It was a crazy chase and no one but our favorite duo could be trusted with the "precious". Once again, I love the references to popular films and books. I am not sure how I feel about the ending, but what I enjoyed about this book is Owen's protectiveness. he had a "dont you dare touch my girlfriend " approach that I found adorable. Yet I will enjoy the last book more if finally people dro ...more

It was a smart decision to bring Mimi back, although the resolution of that was highly unsatisfying. I don't know what I think about the ending of the book, but I'll power on and read the next one. ...more

It's a madhouse! A powerful magic artifact has arrived in New York City. The Eye of the Moon, bestows ultimate power. The Knot of Arnhold, grants invulnerability. These two powerful artifacts have been magically forged into a single brooch. It's too dangerous for any one to own it, so Merlin tasks Katie and Owen (newly immune to magic) to recover and destroy the artifact. They are opposed by the Elf Lord and a group of Magic Puritans who have their own plans for the brooch. Fortunately, Katie an ...more

As a disclaimer I am reviewing the whole series (8 books) in this review because I read them all within a week, so while they are their own separate thing, I really view them as just one whole. I will likely cut and paste this review into each books review spot, with perhaps a comment or two about the individual book itself.

That said, I really enjoyed this book, and this whole series. It was a bizarre modern magical romp through New York (and occasionally Texas). I really appreciated the corpor
I think this may be the best book of the series, after the first one that introduced fairies and elves and magic and even Merlin--in downtown Manhattan. No, I am recalling incidents in several of the books that made them really top notch, so they are all right up in the top echelon of light reading--and they have heavy lacings of humor throughout, which is the final ingredient to make a delightful read.

I worked really hard for this book*, but sadly it gets just 2 1/2 stars. I have a tough time when the entire story takes places over only a day or two - why write the book if you are only giving us 24 hours? And no, it's not the Keifer Sutherland exciting 24 hours; it was mostly them running, and her grandmother being sassy. And, the major character point they kept bringing up, well you just knew it was going to be fixed, they were so obvious about it.

I have really liked finding this series, and

Another addictive page-turner! I loved this instalment. Poor Owen is still suffering from the news of who his parents were. I really want to slap the fanatics that are determined to see him fall just because of who he was born too, never mind all he has done for good guys and how many times he's proven he has no interest in power or ruling the world, he just wants to be left alone and hide from the spotlight but they won't leave him alone!

They definitely had a surprise ending as well, one I can'

Disappointing, to say the least. I've enjoyed the series thus far, but this book seemed utterly pointless. Besides the fact that the entire thing takes place over the course of one day (one day!), there just isn't much going on. An endless series of chase scenes, near misses, and friends-turned enemies-turned friends. Painfully boring, it felt as though the entire three hundred pages was solely to reveal the not-even-remotely-surprising "twist" in the last few pages. And because of the shortened ...more

After a bit of a break I've returned to this series, as they really do make for perfect plane reading. I still love reading about Katie, Owen and all their friends (Katie's grandmother especially - she's delightful!), but must admit that the plot itself in this one didn't really do it for me. It was one long hunt that seemed like it could have been planned better and executed more efficiently. I did enjoy the return of Katie's evil ex-boss though. She's so delightfully despicable (something I ca ...more

This book had a significant weak spot. Parts of it were far too long and redundant yet the ending was pretty cool. I hope the seventh one doesn't crawl along like this one.

What a let down after the last book in the series. Although there was a lot of action (read, running around to avoid the bad guys), it was a lot like the fight scene in the Matrix that went on for so long I was shouting (in my head) 'enough already, this is getting boring.' That's how all the running around felt; it was just repetitiveness that made the book longer but didn't add much to the story. I loved Granny and the addition of Thor and the elves was good. Mimi, as always is a great bad guy ...more

Didn't like this book as much as the rest of the series. Maybe the author tried to hard to create action and a thrilling read but it turned out rushed and confusing with way too many characters... It started boring me towards the middle and I had to force myself a little to finish it.
The ending was good though. But I always kinda expected it to happen.

Still I'm starting book 7 now... I'm obsessed with the magical New York and Owen Palmer.

This series is turning into something of a grudge read. By this point, Katie has accomplished nothing to further her character, career or relationships in the last three books, Owen is a washed up magic-less magician serving no purpose, shallowly conceived antagonists from the first books are turning up as the big evil and her supporting group of cool friends has gone awol. Blugh. Only one more to go...

I love this series and each character that has been introduced. Unfortunately, this book just fell flat for me. It felt like there was not enough story to tell so we were caught in a loop of the same thing happening over and over and over and over from around the third chapter until almost the last.

Once upon a time ...

A little girl learned to amuse herself by making up stories in her head. She turned everyday activities into exciting adventures, and she made up new adventures for characters from her favorite movies, TV shows and books. Then one day she realized that if she wrote down those stories, she'd have a book! But that was crazy, she thought. Real people don't become novelists. That w
