Publisher's Summary

Welcome to Spellbound, where paranormal is the new normal.

The only magic Emma Hart believes in is caffeine and the power of the dryer to lose one sock per load. A public interest lawyer buried under a mound of student debt, Emma's whole life has been one turn of bad luck after another.

Her streak seems to continue when she gets lost on the way to see a client in the remote Pocono Mountains. A chance encounter with a suicidal angel lands her in Spellbound, a town where supernaturals have been cursed to remain for centuries - probably not the best time for Emma to discover that she's actually a witch.

Between the recent murder of the town's public defender, a goblin accused of theft, remedial witch classes, and the attention of one smoking hot vampire, Emma struggles to navigate this unfamiliar terrain without losing her mind...or her life.

Rocky Start But Hooked by the End

This story starts out at a gallop. Within the first 2.5 chapters our main character is whisked into another magical realm permanently leaving behind her entire life, discovers she herself is magical, is introduced to almost the entire community, political system, recent murder, assigned a job, and entered into the Arabella Saint Simon (and yes the story makes sure to mention the school’s acronym in case the listener/reader doesn’t catch it on their own) Academy for Witches. Which also brings up this story initially felt more YA. For those that care there is cussing and sexual joking. Also comments about people being “emo” or that someone is “a goth”. There are also moments that feel like high school bullies yet the main character is a lawyer so it feels odd the contrast of the young tone against the details that this is an adult cast. This isn’t helped by the narrator whose voice is somewhat nasally and sounds very young. To be clear this doesn’t bother me I actually think the narrator does an excellent job navigating such a huge cast. I will say there were SO many characters it was hard for me to track of everyone and their name. But the humor, love triangle between an angel and vamp, murder trial, and small town dynamics really grew on me as I kept listening. The story and pacing moved, the school where Emma our MC is learning magic felt engaging and interesting, and when not overwhelmed by how many folks you were meeting their personalities were engaging and added to the world. The story made me laugh several times and the ending had some nice twists and divergence from standard cliches which I appreciated. Also with Emma being a lawyer I wasn’t finding myself struggling trying to believe why this person would go interview suspects it allowed me to enjoy the narrative. Overall this was a fun, fresh, though sometimes adolescent humored, supernatural cozy. I look forward to reading more of the series.

great book

I immediately fell for this book. I've been in such a book rut lately, audio and reading, that this was such a nice surprise. The narrator was a bit nasally at first but it seemed like it got better with the books progression. Definitely will be listening to the next.

Good story

I liked the storyline but I the narrator sounded like a bored cashier. The voices for the other characters were slightly better. Overall it would have been better if I had read it myself.

Drivel

Gave up on this after the first few pages included the lines “ears pointier than Captain Spock” - Mr Spock surely - and “ like the Beefeater guards outside Buckingham Palace”. The Beefeaters guard the Tower of London. Lazy writing. Derivative story (what’s that TV programme with the fairy tale people stuck in a town and unable to leave, with an aggressive female mayor with magic powers ?) . Returning this.
