“Why does this always happen to us?”
Quinn Broomsparkle, wizard extraordinaire

Six months have passed since wizard Quinn Broomsparkle left behind his indentured servant shackles. He’s in love with his half-dragon/half-fairy familiar, Twig Starfig. He’s got a home. Friends. A job. And a father-in-law he could do without. A pretty close to perfect life. But as Quinn has learn

By far, my favorite of the series!

Twig and Quill have come leaps and bounds regarding their relationship, and their romantic push/pull is no more. They are mates in all things except the official bite and are a solid cohesive team! This definitely made for a less angsty installment and a less frustrating one at that.

Have no fear that things are boring for these two. For sure, they are not without their challenges, because there are many. Quill is the first male to manifest magic in over a

Lighthearted Wizardry to kick off 2021!

I adore this series and His Fairy Share may well be the best one yet. Not only is it action-packed with a complex mystery storyline that will keep even the sleuthiest sleuth guessing but it was F.U.N.! Maslow pressed the accelerator to the floor from the beginning and kept it there throughout. Nothing like holding onto the side of a speeding train by your fingernails, ammiright?

Story: ***5+ Stars***

Greg Boudreaux's performance deserves an OSCAR! After being bewitched, bedragoned and befairied by the previous book, now I'm also bespelled. With Broomsparkle-y sprinkles. Seriously, I have no idea how he does it, but each new book in this series tops the last one and I'm slowly but surely out of superlatives.

Oh, and maybe I should mention the story too, hmm? THE BEST so far and it made my happy place even happier. ;

A complimentary copy was provided in exchange for an honest review.

I am seriously in love with this series and was sooooo excited when I learned book 3 was going to exist. Quinn Broomsparkle is adorable and I loved him from the second I met him. And Twig, ahh, Twig, he's like me in that he guards his hoard with fire and threat of dismemberment. ;) At the end of book 2 we see Quinn receive essentially a summons to return to his home realm and meet with the Council. I knew there w
4.5 Stars

After contemplating my rating for this book over the weekend, I’ve decided to round up my stars because of how FUN this reading experience was.

As someone who has consistently enjoyed the previous stories in this wildly imaginative M/M fantasy series, I was expecting more of the same—that is to say: great world-building, adventurous plots, wonderful and diverse cast of mythical characters, a sweeping romance, and plenty of belly laughs to keep the mood just right!

This third book was more than worth the wait! Stayed up most of the night last night to finish it because I just could not put it down! Love Twig and Quinn so very much!!!
Jan 23, 2021 rated it really liked it
If I thought that book 2 is quite plot heavy, the last one in the series is not only full of drama, but also contains a good dose of angst (which is a good thing, btw!))

So much happens, my head is spinning just trying to sort it out.
The main thing is that Quinn and Trig sort their relationship out – even if the way it goes was an easy path to take – and save a whole world.

Some things that happened before fall in place by the end, but quite a few remain unexplained. (view spoiler)
Best one yet!! I absolutely love Quinn, Twig and all their clan and the world is so much fun! ❤️ I hope Meghan Maslow has many, many more cases and adventures for Starfig Investigations. 😍

4.5 stars

Meghan Maslow has done it again with another romp in her fantastical and amusing world of the Starfig Investigations series. I was eager for another installment in the series and this book might just be my favorite. There was one issue I had with the story, but other than that, I was absorbed in the fun, funny, and sometimes harrowing exploits of Twig, Quinn, and company.

This time, we get the story from Quinn’s POV. After having the first two books from Twig’s POV

3.75 stars, rounded up

I was worried when I saw this was Quinn's POV because I hadn't fully warmed up to him over the last two books, but I ended up enjoying his POV a lot and it offered some much needed insights into his feelings for Twig, their bond and everything else. Quinn's brother Zak is an interesting addition, and I liked Beckett a lot. Pie gets some closure, which was nice. Getting to see Twig through Quinn's eyes was fun too, and Quinn gets some much needed lessons in valuing all of hi
*Received A Copy To Review From The Author*

I enjoyed this new installment of this series. But I felt a little more disconnected at the same time. I loved getting more focus on Quinn and his past. But so many new characters were introduced that it felt like a whole new world...which it was so I'm not making sense. But yeah. I still love Quinn and Twig together. I love their little ragtag family they've made. I did get emotional at one I guess I wasn't as disconnected as I think I was.

Screw it, I am not splitting hairs with 4.5 stars, this deserves 5 for me especially with the audiobook! Greg Boudreaux was the absolute perfect fit for this series!

I have loved this series since it started. It truly seemed like it was going to be some sort of ridiculous fun MM fantasy because of the names in the blurb and there is some of that but there is a LOT more going for it and I am thoroughly impressed! I know that the plot is very fast with what feels like a lot of different storylines

Was this one full of surprises or what? LOL!!!
3.5 Stars. This book takes the POV of Quinn which was a fun twist. I loved the first half of the book as classic Twig and Quin makes waves in the human world. But after that things get kind of messy. Hectic. All at once and it felt kind of forced. Kind of like an anime that got cancelled so they ran around last minute trying to bring a season's worth of teasers to fruition. Just felt cheap. I would much prefer the series to be stretched out. To give the characters and plot the justice it deserve ...more

What a stupendous bunch of fun! Fabulous battle. Solid world building. Well drawn characters. Clever dialogue. Far better than the second book, right up there with the incredible first book. Love this cast of characters and this series.
Wow, what a whirlwind of a story. There is nearly no time to catch your breath and if nothing is happening for a time then Quinn and Twig might find themselves in the eye of the storm.

We're back in Quinn's home realm where the witches sold him into his indentured slavery years ago but now he's back as the first wizard since 1000 years and of course not every witch is happy to have him back and Quinn still have to find out the real reason why the council requested his return and he has to mee

It was awesome! I love Quinn & Twig!! This book should not be read as a stand-a-lone. So in the last book, Quinn has been summoned back to the land of his birth. If it was up to him, he wouldn't go back as they sold him into slavery years ago, and his elder brother & parents are real pieces of work. But since they haven't figured out how to bond without Quinn losing his magic, off they go. Twig is not well received, as familiars are really nothing more than animals. Twig is obviously not and the ...more

Not a dull moment in this book: Witches and Pirates and Dragons, oh my! :)
Our MCs manage to save not one, but two worlds (ok, maybe save one and make the other safer).

The only negative thing that irked me quite a bit is a very generous amount of misplaced modifiers. Oh well, I guess it makes for some interesting reading.

4.5 stars
Loved it!! Not sure but this may be the best of the series. So much happens - magic trickery, ghostly visitations, lotsa pirates, treachery and heaps of fighting. Poor Quinn and Twig are once again in the thick of things. This was definitely a bit more bloodthirsty than others but showed the gravity of the situation.
Definitely a reread series.

This one ranged between 3 and 5 stars for me. There were some cringeworthy moments I'm trying not to relive (#hashtag anything in a book but particularly one that is set in a medieval world is pretty awful, trademark logo i.e. Broomsparkle Attitude TM is also something I could live without seeing again), but mostly I enjoyed it A LOT, so I'm giving those moments a pass and going with the higher rating.

I'm one of those rare readers who doesn't love the dual POV unless it really adds something to

When Quinn Broomsparkle returns to his home realm, he expects the main danger to be having to face his painful past. But he soon finds himself fighting hard to keep himself and his dragon lover Twig Starfig alive…
Oh-my! What a journey! Prophesies, ghosts, twisted magic, dragons, manipulative relatives, conspiracies and treason, teenage attitude, pirates, broken bonds, demons… All this and then more. A fast paced story packed full with adventures and an undeniable sense of humour that

“Do you always do too-stupid-to-live stuff?”

This would be a really, really expensive movie.

Two things to take note regarding this final volume of the Starfig Investigations trilogy: it’s written from Quinn Broomsparkle’s perspective, and it’s a whole lot darker than the first two volumes in the series. The giddy, sitcom quality of the first two books isn’t entirely absent, and really kicks back in during the last part of the adve

Can I say epic! It was so good. Quinn and Trig took names and kicked butt. They went to Quinn's birthplace as ordered to. Where finally meet Quinn family. They leave a lot to be desired. I loved the action the danger topped off by good old fashioned sex! I had laughter, tears, and bubbling feeling while reading. It is a must read! ...more

What a fun ride! There's a lot of story packed into this one. I kept checking the time on my audiobook, thinking I must be near the end since so much had already happened, but then, nope, the book was like, "But wait! There's more!"

Plus, I really have to say, the "Tuuk Chingle" references were genius. I added an entire extra star just for those.

This kind of feels like the end, but I hope not. There's a lot of great world building here already, so it seems like there could be more stories to tell
3.5 stars! Another wonderful addition to the series. This had the same humor we’ve seen previously, but since it’s told entirely from Quinn’s prospective, I feel like we also got more of a serious and emotional side as well. The action felt pretty much nonstop, which had me not wanting to put the book down for anything! I liked that we got to learn more about Quinn and his past before going to the Elder, and I loved how Twig was a constant pillar of love and support for him the entire time. This ...more

MEGHAN MASLOW is truly a rare breed. No, not a unicorn (although that would be sooo cool). She’s a—gasp!—extroverted writer.

She believes that life is meant to be lived. Preferably with lots of people around. Every day is an adventure, or should be. She’s spent a large portion of her life working and living in various countries in Africa. She’s multitalented, having perfected the art of eavesdroppi
