I've said it before, but sometimes I'm a bad person. I cheated on my twelfth grade math final, I've run countless yellow lights, and I gossip about how hot my kickass best friends are. (Good thing my job as a guild bartender doesn't require moral perfection.)

But there's bad, and then there's bad. And I'm not sure which applies to a certain dark druid/wanted criminal/reluct

not to be emo on main, but that ending just about made me die and i don't think i'm exaggerating. me?? prone to exaggeration? please.

ANYWAY. it's hard to review a book in a series without any types of spoilers, so here's your warning. spoilers for the spellbound books may or may not appear. read at your own risk.

to avoid sounding like a broken record, i'm gonna skip how utterly in AWE i am of marie's storytelling skills. i've said it before and i'll keep saying it: she is a master of upping the

He and Zak glowered at each other over the top of my head, and I almost face-palmed. Sure, guys. Go ahead. Make a scene. Why not? (c)

More beautiful and magical happenings happening. The druid Zak is back to his nasty self. Tori's familiars are as usually helpful (and nice to have, for a newly 'found' witch). Ezra needs a lot more help than he's getting but drat, who are we kidding: everyone's doing whatever they can already.
It's so very good to see how Tori's growing into herself. Really good
Tori was less annoying, but basically everything else was just one large setup for whatever happens next for Ezra. Also, it's getting a little annoying how often Tori has the exact right magical thing to save her dumb ass at the last second. Every.time. And yet I keep reading these books. Mainly so that I can understand the sister-series featuring Robin, which is a lot better in my opinion. ...more

Did you think I was going to give this anything less than 5 stars? If so, you don’t know me very well.

Also, I just recently finished Game of Thrones (I'm behind the times, I know I know). So expect a certain theme from my gifs over the next several reviews =D

Druid Vices and a Vodka has it all:

4.25 stars

I am so glad I introduced myself to The Guild Codex series last year. And that I decided to stick with it despite not having enjoyed the first couple of instalments. Because this series has grown tremendously since then. In terms of plotline, characters and the overall writing style itself.

While I think I gave the last three books five or four stars, I will admit that I am much more invested in Demonized (this series' sister series) than Spellbound. So much so that I had gone ahead

Tori was still her sassy and loyal self in this novel. There were quite a few things she lost along the way though. Some were replaceable, others not. Some people proved that they never deserved her loyalty and friendship in the first place (to them I say good riddance because I was never a fan). Thi

Absolutely loved this although a certain character just about broke my heart along with a certain situation with a beloved character that is most definitely breaking my heart.
I had so many emotions while reading this and I don't think I can still quite process them all but I am super excited for whatever happens to these characters next.

I can't wait for the next book. I love how much these characters, all of them but especially Tori, have grown. I can't believe there are only two more books le

I love this series! In this book, all the guys have serious problems going on and The Ghost does too! There has so much friendship between them and betrayal! Life changing events happen that effect the whole group! This book had my emotions everywhere! So much craziness and action!
The narration is terrific as usual! You know the narration is good when you forget it is narration you're listening

Yay!!!! Finally Zak returns!!!!!!!
Ugh I can't be the only one shipping Tori and Zak, right?
I mean Ezra is cool and all but he is kind of a bland character to Tori's passion (in general).
At least with Zak there is always banter or interesting conversations.
Also, in general Zak just seems to be an actual deep character to be interested in.
4.5 stars. I’m so invested in what happens to Ezra, that the rest of the plot passed me by in terms of excitement although I really like Zak too. Lots of action as usual. Tori even annoyed me less than usual!

The Return of the Enigmatic Druid

I think I say this every time, but this is the best one yet! Can I give it 10 stars?

The rollercoaster of emotions started really quick at about 7% in. Druid Vices and a Vodka didn't let up with the breathtaking highs or soul crushing lows until the very end. This one gave me a massive hangover, guys. 25% longer than it's predecessors, this book is packed with character development, daring action scenes, intense combat, hilarious visuals, and jaw-dropping displays

Druids, demons, summoners, witches and more await you in this action-packed, character driven urban fantasy series. Our protagonist is a student, a bartender, and a witch. (well not really a witch, but don’t tell the Guild). Tori is a member of the Crow and Hammer, and she is desperately trying to figure out ways to help Ezra. Ezra is bound to a demon and doesn’t have much time left. She seeks out Robin (A summoner and the protagonist of the Demonized series) but neither trusts the other and gad ...more
Tori is back and doing battle with a merciless and brutal witch.
Adding to her problems her group of friends are being torn apart by outside forces and she is struggling to hold them all together.

I really love these books. They're a long way from the greatest books ever written but honestly the thing I want most in a novel is a thumping good story and to walk away feeling happy and these books give me that.

Okay I think either I wasn't in the mood for this world or I'm in the minority. I loved the first few books and the side series but I feel this one has gone down. I just didn't really think that it did anything for me. The characters are getting predictable and it seems like Tori without magic uses it a lot. I also wonder that why all of a sudden all this trouble is coming for the guys now that Tori is in their lives. I do love her fae roommate though they are funny. ...more

I still love this series. I still love Tori and gang. I am getting frustrated with the lack of resolution - or honestly any movement AT ALL in the over arching plot of the series. I am almost to the point of waiting for it to be done to continue in the series. I always end up more frustrated than satisfied. :)

I’m barely breathing

This addition to the series was very much non-stop and didn’t lose momentum once. So many more things were brought into the light, but with Annette it really leads to more questions. Definitely another successful story!

Tori goes on a rescue mission to free Zak from MPD before anyone can figure out his real identity. In the process, Kai is captured by his family and forced into the servitude of his betrothed. Even with Zak out of jail, he is still pursued by a famous bounty hunter as well as an old enemy. Tori struggles between trying to see Zak safe, getting Kai back from Yamada's clutches, and continuing her research into the demon amulet that she hopes will save Ezra from his horrific fate.

I'm so glad I pic
4.5 stars. I listened to it in one day, I think this says enough about how much I loved it.

Ezra <3 I love him so much.

But enough of that, as for the story it was wonderful to be back with these characters. I loved getting a chance to learn more about Kai and his background. I still want more there but I can see it moving forward now! Also was great to have a certain Druid back around. I do enjoy his morally grey character even if his actions in this one saddened me at times.
I want more of Tori

I received a free copy of this book from the author and voluntarily reviewed it.

I love how this series and the spin-off are progressing and with this book being advertised as tying the series together even more strongly I was excited to dive in as soon as I got my copy. Druid Vices and a Vodka is another action packed read in this series with some big reveals and twists. Some bad things happening and ofcourse hope as well. It was an intense read for sure.

Tori Dawson is a student, a bartender, and witch. Sort of. Okay, in name only, but if it keeps her employed at the Crow and Hammer then a witch she is. As long as no one finds out about the little white lie she can stay with her guild mage friends and continue with her non-boring life. Speaking of non-boring, when Tori gets word that her frenemy, Zak, AKA The Ghost (or the Crystal Druid depending on who you talk to) is in terrible danger, of course she has to rescue

4.5 Stars... This one was an emotional rollercoaster... Kai, Ezra, and Zak were all breaking my heart; and poor Tori who was in the middle of it all... Our beloved characters face a multitude of challenges throughout this story and the clock continues to tick down to what may be a HUGE catastrophe... I am literally chomping at the bit for the next read to see how a resolution can be made for our leading men... I just want to take a moment to say that I love the chemistry between Tori and Ezra... ...more

I continue to love the Guild Codex Spellbound  series and its world. I keep wondering when it will merge with Guild Codex Demonized.    There is a Guild Codex Universe on Goodreads which combines them for reading order.  The overall story arc is connected and like most urban fantasy, I would read them in order

Wow, that was one crazy book!

I really like Tori and the guys (Ezra, Aaron, and Kai). There is nonstop action in this one and twists with betrayals. Finally some relationship action. LOL!

Bring on the next book! :)
