DNF at 27%
I didn't know that this was the second book in the series, and i was sorta confused wich made me not enjoy the book as much as i hoped i would. So that's why i DNF'ed it.

I was excited to read Magic Heist. I wanted to read a book that had fairies, elves, trolls, Red Caps, and dragons. Heck, I needed to read a book like that. Lately, I have been reading books that were heavy on the drama, and I needed a break from that. I got that with Magic Heist.

Now, onto the complaint. If you have been following my blog for any length of time, you know how much I dislike starting a series mid-series. 9 out of 10 times, the books are not standalone. I am left wondering what the

I was bored with the first book, but this one was such a page-turner. The thrill of not knowing what would happen next to the characters made this book captivating! I was always so eager to find out where they’d go next and how they’d solve each problem.

There were new characters introduced, and the old ones were built upon. I liked Amelia and how she interacted with Buzzard. I especially enjoyed Ian and Layla’s relationship. I also liked Finn, and I thought it was funny how he’d enjoy doing thin

Magic Heist picks up where Magic Harvest left off. If you haven't read book one, you may want to do so before trying to tackle book two. Otherwise, a lot of the events may be hard to keep up with.
Also, my review may be kind of spoiler-y if you haven't read book one.


Layla, Ian, and the others are back to try and help the fairies they rescued get back to the magic realm, especially now that none of them have magic. Unfortunately, finding the portal to get them back home is proving to be diffi

Book two in the series (and there will be a book three!!!)

Layla and Ian, that chemistry! I couldn’t wait for them to finally be alone. But that didn’t happen until the end, so the buildup was great.

In book two the team tries to find the Magic market place to locate more Fairies in this huge Fairy trafficking ring. Ian, a half dragon now, is trying to control the dragon for most of the book. Buzzard is as funny as ever and Finn can’t seem to take a step back from Layla and makes Ian jealous.

Magic Heist by Mary Karlik is the second book in the Fairy Trafficking Series that I listened to on audio narrated by Ruth Urquhart.

This is the second book of Mary’s that I have read and it definitely won’t be my last. The story was a very enjoyable young adult fantasy. I love Layla and Ian’s sweet romance. The book does end on a cliffhanger.

Ruth did an amazing job narrating. I absolutely loved her accent for this book. I felt like it brought authenticity to the fairy world.

After reading the first book in the series a few days ago, this one kicks off right where that one left off. Immediately the reader is dropped into a captivating story, that at times feels a little rushed and chaotic, but altogether was a pretty interesting example of the strength of a great YA novel.

The characters, which I found some to be flat and uninteresting, blossomed into interesting characters in their own right, with many new characters adding to the excitement of the novel. Finn, who

While this book wasn't exactly as wonderful as the first book, in my opinion, it was still very wonderful. Also, if I'm being honest, both books were very cheesy. I think that's what makes them both charming to me. I also have to give the author points for creativity and uniqueness. She managed to make very popular topics shine in a brand new light. It's like she made the impossible seem possible. I can't wait to continue this series. Especially with the way it ended.

The characters are all grea

Love reading fairy books? Take a peek at this one!

I didn't read the first book, and I think it would have been better to have because there was a backstory that took me a chunk of the book to figure out. 

But besides that, I think it was a solid book. 

We follow the main character as she is on a mission to save her fellow fairies. She's the typical, strong YA heroine but with a magical twist. It was interesting to see the fantasy take on trafficking and the suspense behind locating and deploying a

This is the second book in the series. I didn't read the first one, but the beginning of this book spent a lot of time rehashing the events of the last book so it was pretty easy to figure out everything that led to this point of the adventures. This is a good idea, but the writing was lacking. It wasn't the worst writing, it just wasn't very good. Like constantly using stomach issues to convey stress. Also, this is listed as YA, but the characters seemed grown-up. The lead male is a cop. The st ...more

I received this ARC for an honest review. This is the second book in the series. IT IS NOT A STAND ALONE. The first book is Magic Harvest (Fairy Trafficking Book 1). In this book, Ian, Layla, and friends are trying to get the rescued fairies home. Of course, fate has other plans. Who can Layla trust? Will Ian and Layla get a chance to be together? I hate to say too much because so much happens in this book, and I hate to post spoilers. I like how the author, Mary Karlik, does a good job of blend ...more

This is book 2 in the Fairy Trafficking series and I think I would have liked Magic Heist if I had read book 1. Mary Karlik does a pretty good job of providing details that are relevant from book 1 but I just thought it was slightly hard to follow the story without the background.Layla is a fairy with some strange powers and she and Ian team up to help save the fairy world. Teens/ young adults who like paranormal stories will probably enjoy this read. I received a copy of this ARC in exchange fo ...more

The way Ruth Urquhart narrates this is so beautiful. She handles all the accents so well and it's easy to tell who is who and they carried on really well from the first book.

Is it odd that I liked this book more than the first? I'm not sure if it's being more comfortable with the characters and their world or whether I just liked the actual story more. I loved the way it carries on from the first book, the overarching storyline interspersed with smaller storylines. It made me chuckle in quite a

I'm loving this series! Fey, Dragon's, all sorts of is a enticing web of danger. The storyline is pure fantasy with hints of Scotland lore and all types of mystical creatures. The world building is so incredible and so much fun.
I absolutely adore Layla and Ian's characters and how much more the previous book's characters are so much more involved in this book. I'm really looking forward to reading the next installment!

Brilliant story telling!

This was a brilliant second installment in this series. I fell more in love with the characters and their adventure than before. The interactions between the characters were superbly written and totally believable even though is fantastic lol. It's a fast paced story with plenty of action and loads of characters to drag you into their world.
Amazing storytelling!

This book starts exactly where the first book ends and the story continues to save faeries from death and slavery. There is so much more you learn in this story and more twists to keep you on the edge of your seat. I can’t wait for more in this series and hope it will be out soon.

Originally published on Cyn's Workshop

A fun sequel that moves at a faster pace than the previous novel and picks up right where the previous novel left off, beginning with a light, fun atmosphere before launching into the action and the storytelling.

Keeping the pace of the story moving Magic Heist splits up Layla and Ian, sending Ian to the Fae realm and keeping Layla in the human realm. By separating the two, the story gives the reader new perspectives on the world’s that the characters land in

Book Review- Magic Heist by Mary Karlik

This is the second book in the series. Ian is fighting the dragon that is inside of him. He is trying to keep Layla safe and help the fairies that were saved. I love that Layla trusts Ian. I also love that she is half fairy and half human. Her life has not been ideal as she was shunned because of what she was. What makes things perfect in this sense is she is the only one who can save those that shunned her.
She is an awesome character who is trying to do wh

Mary Karlik has always been a dreamer. When she was a teen, she read The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe, and then sat in every wardrobe in her Nanna's home, trying to open the door to Narnia. She didn't find it, but she did discover her voice as an author: one filled with her young adult self, and grounded in her roots as a Texan and her Scottish heritage, nourished by obscure Scottish folklore. ...more
