Jennifer | 3551 comments Book One Description: 16 year old Eden Matthews has been in and out of private schools for the last two years. She can't seem to stop herself from closing them down. Kingsley is her last chance to finish high school and the last private school willing to accept her.

She is focused on just getting through graduation until she realizes Kingsley is not like the other private schools she's been to. The students may be different, but so is she. And after meeting Kiran Kendrick, the boy who won't leave her alone and seems to be the source of all her problems, she is suddenly in a world that feels more make-believe than reality.

To top it off, she is being hunted by men who want to kill Kiran and her best friend Lilly is taken away to a foreign prison. Eden finds herself right in the middle of an ancient war, threatening everything she loves. She alone has to find a way to save her best friend and the boy who has captivated her heart.

Reckless Magic is an intricate story about mystery, adventure, magic and forbidden love. Eden Matthews is an unlikely heroine determined to save the world and be with her one, true love before it's too late.

Ch 11 reply: I agree, hello she is a powerful witch... but I guess it's all because they care about her...

Ch 13 reply: Yes! exactly how I feel Jericho should be a no-brainer but she likes a difficult life I guess *sigh*

I think they are. I just got #3 and 4 downloaded, but it looked like 3 didn't have audio but 4 did?? I know 7 does. It's weird.


Cinthia | 5703 comments ummm... I might take a break then before I pick up #3... it's actually getting better...


Jennifer | 3551 comments Oh, now I just looked again and #3 has audio after all. Maybe I need to update my app. LOL.

No worries! I've been listening in the car a lot the last few days, so I'm ahead. This is the only audio series I have until the middle of the month too, so it's getting my full attention.

Ch 10 - lol Broken heart. Yes I can respect Jericho for being that honest I am so team Jericho.

Ch 18 - Yeah I knew she wouldn't either, there is too much history there and yes she is trying to be different only I wish she didn't doubt herself so much.

Ch 28 - I wish she stopped giving him all this leeway... dude just be decisive!

Finished - I am glad Gabriel was able to help her see what is really at stake and help her realize that she needs to be more mindful of what other people are risking in this war. Yeah I can't wait for next book t see what Kiran does.

Ch 8 - (view spoiler)

Can I just say that I am so relieved that the POV for this book is all Avalon so far. I wasn't sure I could take one more page of Eden. And the narrator is pretty good, I think he has a sexy Avalon voice.

Yep! Book 5 is my favorite so far! I loved Avalon's POV, and the narrator did a good job bringing his character to life. On to book 6 and Jericho's story - YAY!

Ch 7: Yes he is so cocky and he knows he is handsome and that she loves him!

Ch 15: I think she is trying to show him how strong she is and doesn't need him lol.

Ch. 23: I can't wait for them to catch him... he keeps getting away so more books are made lol.

Finish: lol you are so funny stretch marks... Yea I guess they won't have to worry about populating their kind. (view spoiler)
