Jade's friend-count stands at three. Four, if you include the lizard.
Now that she's joined a coven, Jade is figuring out what it means to be a witch. Spells, counter-hexes, charms and surprisingly: paperwork. She considers the transition from mundane to witch successful with only a few exceptions. Most notably, the demon who keeps showing up in her pantry, her taboo lust

In actuality it only took me two days to read this book. I just kept it there so I would remember.

I love this story and the world this author has created. The rules for the paranormal are a little different and I am curious and hopeful that the question of how she even got her magic is going to be addressed in the next book.

I certainly enjoy both of the books and have preordered the next and sit anxiously for its arrival.

I finished this book quite a while ago. Ironically I read it while my youngest child was very ill in the hospital, and now I am up at 3am with the same child, sick again. In any case, it was fabulous! Excellent follow-up to the first novel in the series, and left me every bit as hungry for more of Jade's story. Well done, Margarita!!

Loved this book even better than the first (which is saying something because I absolutely adored the first book). I loved the entire plot and the character development! Great job! Can't wait for the next one!

One of the best

This is my second coven craft and I can't wait for another! Extremely well written and with good knowledge of magic and witchcraft.

Jade is settling into Coven life somewhat and now has a job in Counter-Magic. Unfortunately for her, as the newbie she gets the sucky jobs. At the beginning of the book she is tromping through the sewer tracking down magic stuff. While she's down there she finds a very large lizardy thing and saves it.

Jade has been working with demon magic and has an aptitude for it. She wards her cottage so that no one can get in until she tunes the spell to them. She doesn't hex the pantry because if Seth the

When I picked up the first book in the series, Trial by Fire, at lunch one day, I couldn't put it down. I read straight through lunch--forced myself to go back to work--picked it up again while waiting for takeout, and sat in the parking lot reading while my dinner went cold. I put off reading Counter Hex because part of me was a little afraid it couldn't possibly be as good as the first book. Boy was I wrong! I made sure I didn't have anywhere to be (just in case) and sure enough, was pulled in ...more

I enjoyed the story in this one, even more than I did Trial By Fire, so it pains me to give it a lower rating. The editing was awful! (Kobo edition anyhow). Duplicate words or nonsensical phrasing (as if someone had inserted a new descriptor, or action, without removing the old one) very quickly pulled me from the enjoyable fictional universe and plunked me right back down into reality. It was really distracting.

I'll still read the third book in the series, this was just a disappointment.

The second story almost didn't disappoint. It's four star, so definitely still good, with more characters getting fleshed out, and Jade's magic preference becoming the forefront of the story. It sets up for some interesting Lily mystery, but only little hints are given still. The almost? The mystery again. This time, I predicted who did it as soon as the mystery started. Still, learning more about the world and learning more about magic kept my review high. Loving the series alot!

This book felt more polished and together than the previous one, Jade seems to make more sense and by giving us some hints of information about her past we are starting to get more of a complete view of her as a character. It was fast paced and fun and Bruce is brilliant. It did however end on a cliffhanger which I always find frustrating.

Margarita loves the art, creativity and romanticism of storytelling. Sometimes, however, the act of putting pen to paper proves challenging, elusive. She develops genuine, relatable characters which grow in the hearts of her readers. From that foundation, the stories flourish into a warm friend.

She enjoys pursuits which blur the lines between the analytical and creative sides of her brain. This in
