Three Mages and a Margarita
It went downhill the moment they asked me to do a trial shift instead of an interview — to see if I'd mesh with their "special" clientele. I think that part went great. Their customers were complete dickheads, and I was an asshole right bac ...more
Magic guilds, Elemental mages and psychics and other magic people, strong sense of friendship and loyalty.....what does this remind me of?...
Say hello to the more adult, urban fantasy version of Fairy Tail, one of my FAVORITE ANIMES OF ALL TIME. I mean Erza is even my profile pic. I don't know if the similarities are wishful thinking on my part or if the author took inspiration from Fairy Tail, but either way I was SO EXCITED with the connections I was making.
I devoured thi ...more
*I received an ecopy of this book from the author. This has not influenced my review.*
The blurb says this book is a fun, sassy, fast-paced urban fantasy, and I gotta say, that is actually a highly accurate description!
Tori, our main character, was one of those heroines who is full of sass and attitude and runs her mouth off or does impulsive things even when she shouldn't, and that's normally a type of character I'm not fond of. But her short temper was kind of understandable in th ...more

This book was a glorious adventure and it was just what I needed right now! Annette Marie has broken the mold and shattered my expectations yet again. Just when I think that she is super clever for coming up with imaginative, complex fantasy worlds she releases another and I a ...more
I think I've said this before, but whatever. I love Annette Marie's books and I'll read anything of hers at this point. Anything.
I was ecstatic when Marie announced two new series, one of them being this one! I was just waiting for more info to come in—cover reveals, character reveals, blurbs, all that good stuff. And each new teaser just got me hyped up all the more.
That being said, I was extremely satisfied with Three Mages and a Margarita! Despite the t ...more
I was expecting to like Three Mages and a Margarita. I was NOT expecting to love it. And well..let’s just say as soon as I finished I jumped onto GoodReads to see when the next one was coming out!
I signed up for the book tour because I like sassy female characters and felt like I could use a lighthearted, amusing read in the middle of all my heavy science stuff that I’ve been working on for months. The description made me think Jim Butcher and Gail Carri ...more
There's a bit of romance - with a hint of more to possibly come....
...but for the most part this is solidly in the UF territory - just fluffy UF. BUT it's FUN fluffy. Lots of snark, sarcasm and action. I'm totally going on to read book 2!!
Don’t hit first, but always hit back.
Three Mages and a Margarita is a charming Urban Fantasy book with lots of humor and a cast of well developed characters. The world-building is really well done, and the premise of a bar being a guild is both intriguing and really well explored. There’s a bit of a romance vibe between several characters, but the novel is not a reverse harem deal, just filled with fun.
Annette Marie creates a unique world and a great set up for the series in this no ...more
I came across this book in my GR feed & suggested it to a friend. We promptly set up a Buddy Read to happen in a few days. I am a dork. This book is currently available on Kindle Unlimited, and I went to read a few pages to see if I would like it. I was hooked by the down to earth character & humor and ended up reading the whole thing before the Buddy Read. Ha!
My friend read the book, had a good time and we're in to Buddy Read the next one when it comes out.
I like Tori & ...more
Three Mages and a Margarita was a fun read. I've had some of this author's books on my to-read list for a while now, but this is the first book by her that I actually read. If you're looking for an enjoyable urban fantasy read this is definitely a good one to check out.
Three Mages and Margarita is told from first person point of view from Tori's perspective. At the start of the book she gets fired from another job, she ha ...more
I LOVED Tori, she’s sassy, she’s vibrant, and she’s got a good (though impulsive) head on her shoulders,
“Anyone who’s known me for more than an hour has an inkling of my temper. And by inkling, I mean I ...more
OMG this was just soo good. Annette has done it again and gotten me hooked into a new series! Tori is a feisty redhead who gets herself into trouble. Her temper gets her fired from way too many jobs. Desperate she goes the Crow and Hammer for a simple bartender job. Well it wasn;t simple. She uncover a magical guild filled with things she never knew excited. With three mage hotties. Kai, Aaron, and Erza. These characters will have you laughing, gushing wi ...more
My only caveat is the whole "reverse harem" thing. I dislike that genre. With a passion. Author clearly states in the description that i ...more
I received this book for free from Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.Three Mages and a Margarita by Annette Marie was a fun dip into the world of the magical!
Tory is a big character. She has attitude issues that would make you laugh. The opening scene alone let me know I was in for a treat. When she finds a place that actually puts up with her temper and doesn't fire her for throwing margaritas in a customer's fac
Annette Marie has done it again! This was a fantastic start to what I can already tell is going to be an amazing series! I love how detail oriented the universe's she creates are. The narration and pace to the story were great and has left me wanting more.
Tori was a fascinating character to get to know. She has quite a temper and refuses to take anyone's crap. Those personality traits don't make it easy for her to keep a job until sheer luck and coincidence make an appearan ...more
Another bonus to this book are the guys, this isn’t a reverse harem FYI. There a ...more
This is not your average damsel in combat-boots urban fantasy, and honestly I like it. Tori is just the right amount of sassy redhead in a weird situation to make this and amusing story. It helps she isn't being damseled all the time.

Okay. I just need to say that this book was flipping awesome.
Tori was fabulous, I just absolutely adored her character. She was badass in a way that wasn't cringy, or shoved down my throat like some other books that try to portray a "strong female lead." She stood up for herself, and while her temper may make others think she has a really tough personality, she's actually really thoughtful and hates to be a burden o ...more
Annette Marie knows how to build worlds. This series seems more character driven than her previous ones. The characters feel fresh and new. I really enjoyed Tori, she was angry, strong, but very loyal. Aaron was hilarious. Kai, nice and awesome. Ezra, gentle with anger issues. Now, why was this not a reverse harem series? I really don't want to pick one.
Tori is a fun main character with the right balance of sassy, determination, and thoughtfulness. I loved seeing her come into her role as the bartender at the ...more
After Tori was fired, she goes home and then goes out the next day for a job and then gets hit by a flier after looking at it she sees three jobs interviews and she goes to the last one; bring on the bar scene.

When I first read Chase the dark by Annette oh like 3 years ago.. I said it then and Ill say it now... her books have a speed of their own... Books start out slow and pick up pace or sometime along the way they lose some of their flare but not her books they are always fast paced all the freaking way through..
That said lets talk about t ...more
