Once upon a time, I was your average spunky redhead with the lamest employment history ever, a shaky relationship with my only family member, and no idea what I was doing with my life.

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

Bear with me here bc this is the first and only draft of this review and my phone currently sucks at fixing my typos so yolo!

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

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

This was absolutely AMAZING! I laughed, I cried, I got angry, I was sad, I was elated, I truly felt it all. This was everything I wanted and with some things I didn't even know I needed. An absolutely perfect ending to this series and I truly don't think there is anything else I could have asked for. I can't wait to read the end of Robyn and Zylas's story now! ...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!

The last Spellbound book! I cried when it appeared in my box, then I laughed and cried some more as the story turned. I savored every moment and then grinned as it came it it's inevitable end. Tori's story is adventure, finding family being a bad ass and making my heart skip beats. And then there is Twiggy! ;)
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.
An absolutely delicious finale to this mindblowing journey delivered by Annette Marie.

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 .

Ezra, Aaron, Kai, and Tori’s beloved guild are on the line as they race to save Ezra and keep themselves from being taken down. The tale hits the ground running and doesn’t letup until the end.

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.

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

5 Stars... Fast paced, action packed, on the edge of your seat suspense, and some high octane chemical combustion of the romance kind from start to finish... Everything readers could want in the finale to this series was found in these pages... Annette Marie takes her readers on an emotional journey but leaves no loose ends that need tying; each of these characters that we have come to adore find a solid conclusion to their stories (Other than our spin-off series; so excited to hear more from Za ...more
With the help of Zak, the gang attempts to separate Ezra and Eterran. While they are successful, everyone is still on the MPD's most wanted list and ends up in jail where it is clear that Xever and his cult, have corrupted officials through Xanthe's gifts. The guild comes together to free the group and defeat Xanthe, meanwhile, Robin and Zylas are tasked with defeating Xever (which I already read about in Delivering Evil for Experts, so good!).

"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

This series is a must.

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

Utter perfection! I can’t trust myself to leave a review without spoiling anything so all I’ll say is that I have zero complaints. I’m 100% satisfied by this ending.

Don’t murder me, but I thought this book was just...fine. I mean, YES IT WAS ACTION-PACKED and we get the romance that’s been building up this entire time...! But I found one thing so upsetting and it just threw me into a funk for the rest of the book??? I’m still emotional about it and I am not okay.

Trigger warnings for violence, death, decapitation, and cults.

I knew this book was going to be epic but I didn't know how much it would rock the ever-loving socks off my feet in the process. This book was more than I ever could have expected. I suppose that I shouldn't have been surprised. Annette Marie always outdoes herself with every book she writes and she always impresses me with her incredible stories.

One of the things that I was very impressed with was the way that the author was able to wrap up all the loose ends in the story so nicely. While the

This book was AMAZING! It was the perfect ending to this portion of the Guild Codex. It all started with Tori and it all ended with a wonderful family of characters I have grown to love. I am also grateful that the Guild Codex itself isn't finished. If you haven't read the series because you're one of those impatient people who want to read the whole thing at once, now is your time, Spellbound is complete and Annette Marie knocked it out of the park with the ending! ...more

I love all of Annette Marie’s books, but tbh I mostly read this series to get a better understanding of Demonized- Robin and Zylas’ story is my absolute favourite, and I kinda wish Tori’s was the series that was 4 books long and Demonized 8 books long. I could honestly read about Robin and Zylas and his world forever.

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.
