Publisher's Summary

A Wall Street Journal bestseller.

Dead wizards, stolen enchantments, and broken promises force a young spellbreaker out of the shadows in the next thrilling installment of the Spellbreaker series by the bestselling author of The Paper Magician.

England, 1895. An unsolved series of magician murders and opus thefts isn’t a puzzle to Elsie Camden. But to reveal a master spellcaster as the culprit means incriminating herself as an unregistered spellbreaker. When Elsie refuses to join forces with the charming assassin, her secret is exposed, she’s thrown in jail, and the murderer disappears. But Elsie’s hope hasn’t vanished.

Through a twist of luck, the elite magic user Bacchus Kelsey helps Elsie join the lawful, but with a caveat: they must marry to prove their cover story. Forced beneath a magical tutor while her bond with Bacchus grows, Elsie seeks to thwart the plans of England’s most devious criminal - if she can find them.

With hundreds of stolen spells at their disposal, the villain has a plan - and it involves seducing Elsie to the dark side. But even now that her secret is out, Elsie must be careful how she uses the new abilities she’s discovering, or she may play right into the criminal’s hands.

it was a pretty good book. I thought this series would go longer. The narrators were 1000 times better than the first book.

Good Read if You Want a Nice Predictable Love Story

The story of this and the first book are predictable, but offer a pleasant enough love story. The real reason I can’t give it more stars is the performance. The female narrator was good, but the male narrator was awful—almost to the point of me not getting all the way through it.

Wonderful

The most wonderful story. Plenty of excitement, mystery, romance and love for people who are not DNA family but still true family. Good magic and wonderfully read. Love the narrator

Nice part 2 to Spellbreaker

Enjoyed the storyline. The male narrator had some voices that didn't seem to mesh/were odd. Glad it is clean!

Great Story Conclusion

The main story of the previous book has come to conclusion, I hope however this isn't the end of Elsie and Bacchus. They changed the reader for Bacchus THANK GOODNESS!

The change of narrator by chapter wasn't enjoyable

I loved the other books by Charlie N. Holmberg and was waiting for this one for months. It wasn't as good as the previous ones though.
The audio shifted from a narrator I liked on the sample to another I didn't, so it only made it worse for me.
