Damned Souls and a Sangria
Now, I'm a pseudo mythic with the best bartending job in the world, the most amazing (and hot) best friends I never knew I needed, and a guild of misfit magic-users who've become my extended ...more

Okay. But, guys... this book! Honestly— How do I even begin to describe the amazing feelings this book has forever left me with??? Just ugh!
What PURE & EPIC BRILLIANCE;
I can honestly say that I have never read a more satisfying, gratifying, PERFECT series finale; EVERY SINGLE ASPECT of the book just felt RIGHT, & appeared absolut ...more
this ending was PHENOMENAL.
And its worth repeating: phenomenal. We were with Tori for eight while books and while I'm sad her story is ending, I'm so glad that we get more of this world. So in a way, its an ending, but also not really? Silver linings, yall.
Listen I've made it no secret that I love Annette Marie's books. She has never disappointed me—literally never. I've r ...more
* Beware of spoilers for past books in this series.
I can't believe we're here. This series feels like it's been a decade in the making but it only started in 2018. This group of characters will probably still be seen in the spin-offs of this series that the author has announced. So we won't technically have to miss them because they'll be in the background of those books (*fingers crossed*).
HA! I was on the right team for once in my life from the start! It feels so good ...more

I never really liked Tori all that much until this book. I enjoyed this whole series and how it weaved the Demon series in with it. I love how well developed the characters are and the terrific fantasy is fresh and unique. Lots of great creatures fighting the main characters which is always pretty fun!😁
Read these in order! Read the Demon series too!
READ THIS SERIES! :) Now I have the last Demonized book to look forward to and I know I'll see a little of the Spellbound gange in that book. ...more
DSAAS is the eighth and the final book to The Guild Codex : Spellbound series and if you are reading this review then I am assuming you are a Guild codex fan (if not a fan then a GC reader at least) or else you wouldn't care for the review of the final instalment. So to all GC fans - Read this asap. You will love it .
There, that is my review. If you like this series, you will be more than content with thi ...more
I laughed, held my breath, and swore as things escalated. Twists, turns, and reveals kept me intently listening. Tori and her friends are determined to save Erza and protect the Crow and Hammer. Their guild master rocked, but even he needed an assist as tensions mounted.
The romance heated and while it elat ...more

This tarot reading gave me chills! "Damned Souls and a Sangria" is single-handedly the most epic conclusion to an UF series a fan could ask for. Had me up past dawn and on the edge of my seat to the point where I needed to ge...more
Nick Jonas sums up my entire emotional mindset through this book... (view spoiler)[a sentence I never thought I would say (hide spoiler)].
I had to sit on the ending of this story for a while before I was able to write up a review. Always and forever...Annette, you are a genius. I am a seasoned reader. There are very few plot lines I haven't read. Annette's books are one of those few. This makes my heart grow 3 sizes too big because it allows me to experience the joy and love of reading ag ...more
all-round enjoyable series!!

"This is a guild of second chances, lessons learned, and renewal.”
In many ways, "Damned Souls and a Sangria" was truly an epic finale. It was a great way to wrap up The Guild Codex: Spellbound series and at the same time connect the important events there to the Demonized and Warped storylines. If you have only read Spellbound at this point and you are still uncertain whether you should check out the other 2 series, this book would have a fair chance of convincing you t ...more
But thankfully some of the characters we have grown to love will make an appearance in future books set in this world.
I can't wait. ...more
This finale has left me in a boiling pot of all sorts of emotions. I want to literally thank this author for creating this world and seeing it through. The interweaving, progression, pacing. I never thought I would read a series that had more than a few books because you know sometimes people draw things out way past it’s prime but this series, this world was (and still) executed perfectly. I’m so happy and yet silently grieving (lol) that this is the finale.

Okay... seriously I cried on and off through this because I'm so sad to say goodbye to Tori, Ezra, Aaron, and Kai. I hope that we see them throughout other Guild Codex books because they are just the most fun. I've never wanted to be a part of a series so freakin bad before.
This was an amazing finale, though. It was everything I ever wanted from Spellbound. Tori and Ezra 4eva <3<3<3<3 ...more

I was a little disappointed with this book, also the romance fell a little flag after such a long buildup. But all in all, as usual, Annette Marie’s writing is sublime and a treat.
How come you're so so good?
