Cast in Hellfire
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 ...more

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’...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
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.
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, ...more
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 ...more

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, ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
I really like Marion as a character and ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
You will find: some sex, graphic violence, plenty of twists, ...more
If you would like to know the instant my next book is available, you should enlist in my Army of Evil! We have a wicked cool secret handshake, but you'll have ...more
