3.75 Marion you Might be Redeemable Yet Stars

How do you make some of your characters more interesting and the plot better in your second book??? Easy you tell everyone to go to hell. I loved the switch up to the focus of this story and was happy to tag along to hell with Seth and Marion.

This is a really good example of why I don’t usually count a series down and out if I just so happen to dislike the first book in it. I really hated Marion in Cast in Angelfire and it really colored how I felt

3.5 There is hope for Marion yet Stars

Cast in Hellfire takes off right after the end of the previous book. Marion is now the steward of the Winter Court, which is in chaos since the revolution five years earlier. And she still doesn’t have her memories, but is hoping that she might make a difference with the help of her boyfriend Prince ErlKonig of the Autumn Court. But when Seth Wilder comes to her for help, she’

Decent story. Marion is still hard to put up with, though I don't entirely hate her... I do want to smack her a few times and see if that helps. Konig on the other hand... #skeeze. Entertaining enough that I'll continue... 3.5 stars

Buddy read with the Wednesday UF Group of BB&B.

A definite improvement over the first book. Still Marion is a weak lead. But improving so maybe by the end I'll actually like her.

From the things I gathered Marion was a holy terror of spoiled teen before she lost her memories and while that doesn't surprise me thanks to the hints from the previous book, it makes me wonder how her sister Elise had let things get so bad. After all Elise is God and since Marion is her Voice they should have had

This review comes from the Urban Paranormal Book Blog.
Thanks to SM Reine's team for sending me this awesome series!

If you've been wondering about Seth, you get your answers ... But it's not what you think.

This book picks up exactly where book 1 left off. Marion is supposed to be dealing with the Winter Court. She's the Steward and supposed to be getting it back to normal function, along with figuring out just how to deal with the angels. Meanwhile, Seth gets a lead on Marion's memories that they

Man, Konig needs a good throat chop. I just.. *makes ragey eyes at him*... I didn't trust the guy in book 1 and I think even less of him in this book. That Marion's lack of memory means she has to trust him to an extent kills me.

Come to think of it, Marion's whole situation kills me. Finding out how she ended up the way she did... actually, it fit with what we know about this world. I think the thing I keep circling around is that the Marion she was before was a whole lot less likable than

I need to be honest, I found the start of this novel remarkably slow. Not necessarily boring but it definitely took me a long time to get into it. When the novel started to perk up a bit, that was because of Seth aka Luke or whatever other identities he has.

Marion still doesn't have all her memories back and until she does, she's in a whole lot of trouble. The angels are wanting to start a war because she has taken over Winter Court temporarily. Not only that but something

Cast in Hellfire is book 2 of the Mage Craft series. While I enjoyed book 1, I loved the progression of this story line and recognized a lot of cross-over characters. It was a lot of fun to see these other protagonists through the eyes of another. The plot reveals kept coming, and the ending left the reader with some intriguing questions.

WOW, who knew memories could cause so much trouble.

Seth comes back to Marion, to tell her he knows where her memories are and that he is going to get them. Needless to say, we all know how Marion reacts to that. And we're off to the races.

Read and enjoy.

Action packed and suspenseful.

This is a great a great sequel to the first book. It grabbed from the first page and didn't let go even at the end. On to the next book.
I don't have the right words ... it was just wonderfully complex like everything else she rights.This was a nice addition that helped build up the momentum for the next book.

S. M. Reine continues to entertain. All of her books have an interconnecting theme that makes each separate series interesting.
Only took a day to read = hooked!

Not as good as the first book in this series.... But once again the characters pulled you through the book in lightening speed!

I want to like Marion, but her manipulative nature is worrisome. She seems to be making decisions for the good of the autumn and Winter courts. I’m not a fan of the Autumn king.

Well... I didn't see that coming. And no, I can't tell you what I didn't see coming for more than one reason. First, it would spoil it for you and second... there was more than one thing that I didn't see coming. And that dear readers is the beauty of most books that S.M. Reine writes. ;) (See how she turns me into a rambling mess?)

So technically, you could start this series as a stand alone. I still wouldn't recommend it. Even though I've read almost all of S.M. Reine's books up to this point,
Disclosure: I was given this ebook for an honest review.

S.M. Reine has done it again! I can't believe how prolific she is! I feel I have climbed into her world and each book takes me deeper. Okay, it isn't a foreign world. It is our world with changes brought about by a lot of factors, gods goddesses, angels, demons, fae, magick and so much more. Just when you think she has introduced all the imaginary creatures available, there are more. And yet, these places are all close at hand. I miss

Ooh, that prince sure knows how to get under my skin! He's manipulative, sex craze, and pushy and I'm surprised I caught myself saying poor Marion when I wasn't her biggest fan in Cast in Angelfire haha. In this one I'm warming up to her, just only when she's around Seth I can stand her. But when she's with Konig I just can't put up with them....Ooh,

This book was filled to the brim with surprises and even gave us a nice revelation at the end. If you’re looking for answers in this series, this book goes a long way towards giving us all the answers. Of course, there’s still more to learn and I’m not quite sure who I’m rooting for just yet.

Marion managed to muddle through the summit without her memories, but is still desperate for answers. Lucas/Seth dropped a bomb on her with his

Fast paced, check. Great read, check. Mind blown, check. Anxiously awaiting the next book, check & double check!

I was given an ARC of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.

When I started reading, I just knew where all this was going. (Remember I said that! LOL) Throughout the book, every twist & turn had me even more certain I had this all figured out. Once again she takes us on a wild ride.

Amazing scene & setting depictions as well as fantastic details easily paint

I've been a fan of SM Reine and this crazy world she created for years now. This review will be more of a comment or comparison between this book (and the beginning of this new character series) with previous series of hers that I've read.

The series begins with Marion, the younger sister of a former human who has since become one of the Gods, losing her memory. Marion's pedigree of half witch and half angel has made her the voice of God and one of the most powerful individuals in history. But

Reel it in, guaranteed winner on the line!

I was given an advance copy in exchange for a review. Now onto the review!

In this latest installment of the Mage Craft series, Cast in Hellfire picks up nicely where Cast in Angelfire left off; Marion's mission to find out who stole her memories and get them back.

She's got much to do serving as Steward of the Winter Court with Prince ErlKonig alongside her (ever wonder how she scored that delicious frozen treat of a man - this book clues you in). Items

Reine does such a great job of writing her books that it makes it even more difficult to review them without giving away spoilers. And if you have read any of my other reviews you will know that I don’t do spoilers, but now that we are on to book 2, Cast in Hellfire, of the Mage Craft series I can shout from the rooftops that Seth Wilder is back and even dreamier than ever. Yes, ladies the dashing doctor Lucas Flynn are non-other than the death defying Seth Wilder. However, this is not the only ...more

I seriously love this author! I've become a huge fan, probably since the beginning. Everything she writes is always so entertaining and her writing style is very unique. She never sounds or feels like another author. Now I will say, read book one before you jump into this one because it may be harder to figure out if you don't. I loved book one and I loved this one just as much. There's a seriously twisted little mind blower that had my jaw on the floor.

There must always be three gods. First came Adam, Eve, and Lilith; and now we have James, Elise, and in this book we discover who the third god is.

Once again, SM Reine wrote a book that is incredibly difficult not to spoil, but I will do my best. I enjoyed Cast in Hellfire significantly more than Cast in Angelfire. I feel like the main characters had some more room to develop and find themselves. We also got introduced to

It is an interesting turn of events really and things are heating up with the love triangle of Marion, Seth and the Sidhe prince who let me tell you is very needy of late. His about face when he sees an opportunity makes me want to warn Marion that he is self serving but I think she already knows that and beware anyone who gets caught in the cross fire. So many twists and turns and the "big reveal" at the end was interesting concerning who put this game in motion - all to find Marion's memories. ...more

Don't start unless you have time to finish in one sitting!

As they say in the book... OH MY GODS!! Ok first off, even though you could read this series without reading the first ones, The Descent series, I would strongly recommend you read that first then the rest before this one. This series gives off a lot of info about certain characters that would mess up the others.

But, when you do read this one... wow oh wow is it good! I mean keep you in the edge of your seat good! Not wanting to stop

The second in this series is even BETTER than the first. Fantastic writing from Sara, as usual, I was drawn in from the start and I loved the setting this time around as well. Very dark, it hearkened to the older series she wrote prior to Genesis, but with a new twist. Marion really came out of her shell in this one and I ended up liking her a lot more than I did in the first. The same is true for Seth. What a shocker there, wow.

You will find: some sex, graphic violence, plenty of twists,
