They call me Edge, and I’m the only supernatural in New York City with Djinn powers. My gang is known as the Forsaken. We’re the throwaways of our kind, despised by purebloods for being mixed breeds. Banishment, rejection and abandonment bind us. Yet our differences are what make us powerful, and close to unstoppable. Until today.

I don't usually spend any time talking about the covers of the books I read, but I just wanted to say that I love the one for Magic Brew! The cover model is exactly how I would have pictured Edge and I like the mysterious element that the smoky font gives to it. Very cool.

I was a big fan of author T. Rae Mitchell's other novel, Fate's Fables, so when she approached me about reviewing Magic Brew I immediately said yes. Some background, in case you are interested: the author is a fan of the movie

“Every time Zulu gets amped up, he finds himself a mermaid. I have no clue how that works, anatomically speaking. I guess since he’s got gills and webbed hands and feet, he has the necessary parts to get down with those fishy skanks."

Yeah. I laughed out loud.

Magic Brew is a fast-paced adventure with unforgettable characters and a strong narrative voice. Holding true to its name, it’s a kick-ass blend of every sort of fantasy creature you can imagine. A literary feast for fantasy geeks.

I love stories with action and adventure, so this story was a huge win for me. Vivid world building and vast and varied characters combined with seemingly unbeatable odds turned this story into a thrilling but also nail-biting race/chase through New York. The magic and chaos were woven in with just the right blend. My favorite characters were Nyx and Pandora - two sisters with unique strengths and weaknesses who more than hold their own against challenges from enemy gangs and the super-powered ( ...more

My cover looked very different, showing another aspect of Edge's power. It's on Amazon if you are interested in seeing it!

I really liked that the general storyline is modeled after The Warriors. I liked that there is a large showing of supernatural species shown throughout, many stories just stick with the basics (vampire, werewolf, elf). The pacing is decent. And the ghoul circus! My only real complaint is that there's not enough backstory or character development to really connect. It's a good
Mixed feelings on this one. The characters are interesting and the author sets a fast pace, immediately starting in on the action and not letting up. But it needed a little more world building and maybe a tighter plot. All of this action occurs against a fuzzy background - I never got a really good feel for just what the world was like. The generalities are there, but none of the specifics that bring a world alive and help immerse the reader. The storyline also struggles a bit in the last half. ...more

Inventive and Non-stop

This book has a similar feel to 'The Hobbit' in that the action is one thing after another. I read this book all in one sitting and I am EXHAUSTED!! This book has some fantastic characters to fall in love with (except Dianna - not sure what the point of her character really was); but I highly recommend you read it in small doses so that you can recoup the energy to read the next battle. The whole book story takes place in the course of one night.

Warriors come out and play

I know Ms Mitchell admits that the Warriors were the inspiration for this story, it does a good job standing on its own. At the end I coild almost hear Luther doong his taught with the Coke bottles.

The wide range of powerful misfit that are either pure bred or mixed bred overpowered this unique gang story. Gangs? All takes place in the vicinity of New York City, a summit of all gangs in New York will gather. but something goes terribly wrong, two separate being joins forces and havoc errupts. Got to get back to Coney Island where the 'Forsakens' home turf is safe and sacred grounds, which they control. Now the travel back to Coney (southwestern Brooklyn) right there made this story the thr ...more
Alright, let's get one thing out of the way up front. Yes, this is an Urban Fantasy version of The Warriors. If you can't get past that idea, this book isn't for you. Everyone else, you're in for a treat.

Even in a city overrun with supernatural creatures, Edge is special. While elves, demons, vampires, were-whatevers and the Fae are a dime a dozen, Edge is the only Djinn in New York City. Well, half-Djinn anyway, which means the Forsaken are the only family he knows. The Forsaken take in the rej

*****I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*****

There is SO much going on in this book! It's well written, action packed and the characters are well developed and interesting. This is a first person, Urban Fantasy and it's VERY reminiscent of a cult classic movie called The Warriors.
The abridged synopsis: There are tons of varying gangs in NY but the story primarily focuses on a gang from Brooklyn NY (coney island to be exact) that hav

I loved it! It's like someone took a book about gangs in New York and made all of the characters paranormal creatures. What made it even better was that the main character was in a gang of outsiders comprised of half-breeds. Now imagine that everywhere the gang goes they're fighting a different gang made up of different paranormals. This is where the non-stop action comes in.

As a side note - Apparently, this is a story written by one of the characters from the author's previous books. I've gotta

This is a story about redemption and second chances. Edge the main character is much more than he seems on the surface. The different types of supernaturals were very interesting. The New York setting was very believable. I highly recommend this to anyone who likes a good urban fantasy.

What a blast! Magical gang wars, betrayal, hard core battles, laughter (including my own - out loud), love, and death. There is some great character growth involved in the book, even better it's with all the characters. I liked each member of the gang and didn't feel any of her characters fell flat. I look forward to read more.

Rae didn’t and she sometimes took playing make-believe a bit far. Like the time a wizard hid a bottle of dragon beans in the back yard and left her son convinced he could grow his own dragons. Needless to say, the beans failed to ...more
