Three months ago, I landed a job as a bartender. But not at a bar—at a guild. Yeah, the magic kind.

I'm not a badass mage like my three smokin' hot best friends. I'm not a sorcerer or an alchemist, or even a wussy witch. I'm just a human, slinging drinks like a pro and keeping my non-magical nose out of mythic business. Seriously, I know my limits.

So why am I currently

Star Rating: —> 5. JAW. DROPPING. STARS! .

Absolutely incredible. By far my favorite (omfg I. L O V E D. THIS.) installment in the series thus far!

I love seeing Tori grow as a character in each installment, and she certainly grows a LOT in this one. It’s amazing. Annette Marie is possibly one of the best YA writers I’ve ever had the pleasure of discovering... she leaves you hanging on to every single word like they’re the air you need to breathe.

Me at the last 5%:

Hands down
This series is fun fluff for me, but Tori is suddenly getting on my nerves. I don't recall her being so purposefully stupid/self-centered in her decision making skills in the prior books. I mean, if someone says they are busy and in the middle of something but will come see you when they are done, that is not an invitation to go find them and interrupt them just so you can get what you want right now. The second book went in a completely different direction from the first book, and now this thir ...more

Two Witches and a Whiskey
The Guild Codex: Spellbound, Book 3
By: Annette Marie
Narrated by: Cris Dukehart
This continues the great series with more of Ghost, an accidental binding to a Fae Lord that is slowly killing her, a fall out with her brother, and more awesome magical situations!
The narration continues to be excellent!
This book, this entire series is a complete hoot.
A down on her luck woman walks into a bar, lands a job, and then discovers she's the only human in a bar full of mystical beings.
She should run...but you know...she needs the job.

I am having such a blast with this series. I love the world Annette Marie has created. While each book revolves around a mythical case, the series is best listened to in order of release.

So far the guild has done a good job of keeping Tori’s employment at the Claw & Hammer a secret, but MagiPol shows up with questions about recent cases/bounties and is looking for a guild member with red hair. A woman who was involved in a kidnapping case and may know the notorious Ghost. Eep! The guys get Tori
It is 4 AM so pardon my typos in this review but I just CANNOT with this book.

Annette Marie truly gets better with each and every book she writes. I am in love with Two Witches and a Whiskey and I am so, so impatient for the next one.

Let’s talk worldbuilding: this is something Marie excels at. This wild, supernatural world Tori’s found herself in grows with each new adventure. It not only furthers Tori’s involvement in the dangerous world, but also heightens all the stakes. And I just—I love i

I think these are just getting better and better and I love how feisty Tori is. I will say, I am having a really hard time picking which boy is the best. I love them all and is it weird that I don't necessarily know if I want Tori with any of them or all of them LOL? I do hope we see more of a very broody druid though. After that ending I'm afraid we won't be seeing him for awhile and I adore him! ...more

Two Witches and a Whiskey was an absolute treat. Based on my reactions to the previous installments, it surprised me with how good it was
Mostly because I couldn't bring myself to like Tori at all. But I think she managed to win over me in this book.

I saw a lot of improvement in her and felt like the author finally did justice to how her character was sketched - strong, smart, witty, snarky in a much more realistic way.
Before, I always felt like her character was very su

I want it now and not later. Okay, I finished reading this book on Friday night and i love it. It was so cool. Tori's life is fucking interesting as hell. This book is one of my favorites in the series so far. I felt that is needs to have many and many books to keep us within this world.

She needs to open up a bit more as well. The ending was great!!!! However, I will miss someone. You need to read it for yourselves to know who and why.

*cries* It's like this whole series is just a showcase of how stupid this girl can be and I want to hate her, but then she LEARNS HER GOD DAMN LESSON and I can't hate her!

The story was good, but Tori is really annoying. I prefer the demon series set in the same world but decided to continue this series for its tie-in and cross over to the other series.

This is third in a UF series that builds character and story arcs over time. So I definitely recommend reading in order.

Again, you know about what you are getting with this one. I had a bit of a strain in the middle when Tori fell into some despair about losing her place with the guild and her friends. At this point, it's becoming a little tired and I made a deal with myself that if there wasn't some normalization of her status among mythics by the end, I'd rethink moving on to the next.

Mikky (Nocturnal Predators Reviews)

With every new book in this series Annette Marie seems to outdo herself! Every book that I've read so far becomes a favorite after I finish it!

This was the most action-packed and fast-paced adventure yet! That was probably due to the circumstances Tori found herself in but it was amazing none the less! Tori continues to be her snarky and sassy self in this story. She also has an astonishing amount of things go wrong and work in her favor at the same time. I also loved how she's finally found

This one was great, though I'm getting a little tired of MagiPol. But I loved that we got to spend lots of time with our mage boys, and with Zak. I loved that we found some equilibrium there. And I really loved seeing Tori's situation evolve.

I'm just burning through this series. Can't stop!

First draft, get ready for some serious action.
By: Annette Marie
Narrator: Chris Dukehart

More Fae are introduced 🤗

Book three of the series starts with a surprise visit from the magical feds. Within the first 30 minutes we find ourselves trapped between a rock and a hard place. The witches are trying to bind a Fae Lord and the Feds are closing in on the guild. Most of all, the crew is separated and must work closely while not actually together.

I really enjoy this series. Though it seems to be following a reverse harem set up, it hasn't gone

Best in the series so far...

I would give Two Witches like 10 stars if I could. So happy how things turn out on numerous fronts. Some of my predictions were confirmed, but I'll be honest and say that some truths haven't been revealed fully yet. Great action sequences and excellent use of magic, as always. Loved some of the new support characters as well as some returning ones. I cannot wait for the next in series! And I'm still #teamezra probably more now than I was before!
Another adventurous journey of Tori. This one will reveal more of some character's past and peel another layer of Tori's insecurity. I have fun reading their story even there's no romance but I know Tori needs to grow out of her insecurity first. What else here? Oh, when Tori's wish comes true!!!! ...more

This whole series has really grown on me over the last several books. I find that I'm super invested in this world now despite how disappointed I was that it wasn't RH but had RH vibes. Those vibes are so confusing. I can just hear the author cackling gleefully over the confusion and despair of the RH readers lol. Surprisingly enough though, I'm super hooked to see who ends up making the cut.. which I'm sure also gives the author another gleeful chuckle or two lol.
