Publisher's Summary

I've said it before, but sometimes I'm a bad person. I cheated on my 12th-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/reluctant friend of mine. His transgressions include black-magic dealings, kidnapping, and murder, and he's about to add "revenge-fueled killing spree" to his resume - if I don't stop him. 

Should I stop him? 

He and his nemesis are gearing up to tear each other apart, rogues and vultures are converging with their sights on the spoils, and the guilds that would normally stomp them into the ground are under attack. We're on the verge of an all-out criminal turf war, and my time to decide is almost up. 

Who's the real bad guy...and do I dare stand in his way? 

Make sure to check out the companion series, The Guild Codex: Demonized, available now, and The Guild Codex: Warped, coauthored by Rob Jacobsen.

Enjoyable. Not as good as earlier books in series

Twists, magic and adventure. Betrayal, love and lust. This story improves on the preceeding Amaretto novel, but in general I think these most recent books are losing in cohesion and finesse compared to the earlier novels. Perhaps Annette Marie is trying to pump out the novels in too great a quantity. Still plenty to enjoy hear and an easy listen.

Tory and Co are on form

Clever follow-up to the other stories in the series, and equally clever weaving of Robin's story. Our Heroes are all in hot water of some kind, but I depend on the author to get them out at the end of the final title.

Where's the next one ???

Another great edition. Things are developing between Tori & Ezra but he might be running out time for it to continue. But Ezra may not be the only best friend Tori loses.The Druid Zac makes an appearance but things do not go well. Ends on a cliff hanger >_<.

Awesome story

Such a great story by Annette Marie, I'm impatiently waiting for the next book, huge cliff hanger ending. Chis Dukehart narration was fantastic as per normal.

Ugh! Tori sucks but Twiggy saves the day

I really liked the ending of this book. There is tension, drama, unexpected partnerships, surprising betrayals, new characters, old acquaintances, demons, hunters, and Fae! One big shining light to this book is Twiggy. Gosh, I love that little Fae 🤗 Who I didnt care for in this book was Tori. At the end, I personally was on "the bad guy's" side rather than hers. Tori isnt smart, isnt magical, isnt cunning, she is just a bunch of isnt's. What she is is a hypocrite and cry baby. "I know you're a bad guy but I didnt think you would do bad things"... not her exact words but that's basically what she is thinking... she just annoys me immensely. I read these books for the storyline for all the other characters... I want to know what happens with Ezra, Zac, and Robin. But Tori... Tori is just a side note to me. On a better note, I would love to read this author's adult work. I just imagine stories like this with more mature characters and its exciting.

Amazing as always!

I love this series and always can’t wait to read the next one. This brook brings a lot of the series plot to a peak where we can expect the next books to be full and action packed. I love this narrator and think she does a wonderful job with bringing the characters to life.

Another solid entry in this series

I think this series is great at posing new challenges that help the main characters grow in every book. I really appreciate the humor that gets mixed in with the drama as well. Dukehart also really know how to amp up the action when needed.

The same cliff hanger as the book before

I love this series but I felt like book 5 left us with the cliffhanger (I won' t give any spoilers) that should have been resolved in book 6. When it wasn't, it made me feel like book 6 was basically filler. A little disappointing. These are great characters which could have so many adventures that this seemed like a waste of the opportunity for that to happen.

Another Fast Paced Ride

The Guild Codex series has charm and style. The tongue in cheek humor and fast paced action make this another winner in the series.

My Heart Can't Take This!

My heart can't take this kind of torture any longer! The Druid storyline was fun and rocky and all but I need a solution for Erza! At this point, I'm also not above begging. 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). Things were finally moving forward with Erza and then this background plot point rears its ugly head. My heart hurts for him. The guys were awesome though it seemed like everyone had a big problem of their own to deal with in this particular book. Everyone came together at the end to help deal with the big bad. Their problems still persisted in the background though and we only have two more books to solve them all. The ending was what broke my heart. There needs to be a solution to Erza's problem. He's too precious and has lived too hard of a life to just have things end here. Can you tell I am and have always been Team Erza yet? Dear Annette Marie, please save Erza. The Audio Book: The narration was great as always. The characters were all discernable and there was no background noise present throughout the audio book.

A fantastic read!!

I loved this book! It was a fun story. I really do love Ezra, and seeing Robin, Zylas and Tori's golem fight scene from another point of view was cool. The glimpses I get of Robin and Zylas makes me miss the story from their point of view... Tori is still a lot ridiculous here. Shocked that her bad Chrystal druid was Actually Very Bad... but her story is interesting, even if I consider her a necessary evil to enjoy the world and other characters

Amazing once again!

Tori and the gang are back at it again. As usual Ms Marie delivered a beautifully engaging story, rich in description and character growth. I can't wait to start the next one.

Great fiction and another great book in the series

Enjoyed the book. Entertaining, as always, but you have to enjoy a lot of sexual tention from the female perspective. If you're man enough (or woman) to handle it, you'll enjoy it.

Another Brilliant book!!

I honestly LOVE this series of books!! Every single thing about this is 5 stars. The plot is fantastic, twists and turns that you would never believe, the characters are amazing.... each one now has their own storyline running alongside the main plot. This author writes in a way that you just want MORE!!! I cannot wait until the next one is available... I’ve read that it is July on Audible.... let’s hope so! Do not hesitate reading these books. You will get lost in them and won’t be able to stop reading/listening until the very end. BRILLIANT!!

Freaking Amazing

So much is going on in this book, I don't even know where to start - so I won't otherwise I might spoil it for you. Let me just say this, amazing storyline, even more amazing characters, brilliant narration. Only downside is I have to wait until July for the next book.... Get it, you won't be disappointed :)
