Publisher's Summary

USA Today best-selling author Ash Krafton is bringing a new twist to the old swish-and-flick.... Magic is all in the way you cast it in Takin' It Back, her newest urban fantasy novel!

Think there's nothing worse than becoming like your mother? Try being possessed by her spirit.

Twenty-year-old Aerie hates running collateral recovery for her father’s magical supply shop. Repossession is a nasty business, even when you’re good at it. Her dream job? The store’s new acquisitioner...but Pop says that job’s for someone who finds things, not loses them. When a mysterious amulet must be found, Aerie sees an opportunity to prove her worth to him.

That’s when a spirit trapped inside the amulet possesses her instead. Demonic powers are handy on a door-knock or when facing down one’s nemesis, but mages can’t use the demonic ley without becoming tainted. Worse yet, the spirit may be Aerie's difficult, deadbeat, long-gone mother.

The possession will destroy Aerie if she doesn’t get the amulet off - but the only person who can do that is the guy she repo’d it from. Mr. Probable Ulterior Motive says if she finds some crummy old book she’d lost years ago, she may discover the spirit’s true identity and prevent its damnation. Aerie must entrust her fate to a complete stranger, or let the demon get what it wants - and it wants Pop dead.

Gonna be one hell of a family reunion.

Lara Croft meets The Magicians in this tale of magic, adventure, and hidden truths....

Urban fantasy

Join Aerie as she sets out on a dangerous journey to show Pop she is an invaluable repo worker. At the same time she's possessed by the spirit of her mother, who even on a good day is annoying and obnoxious.
I couldn't stop listening to this audible once I started. I absolutely love this story and am hoping for more to come.
Shelley Reese is amazing with her narration. I had no problem following the story and keeping the characters as individuals with there own personalities. I really enjoyed listening to her and am looking forward to more

Easy, entertaining mystery

This is the first book I’ve read/listened to by this author and I would listen to another.
I’m unsure if this is the beginning of a series. It seems to me there could be more books.
The publisher’s summary says enough, I don’t need to reiterate. This book has a nice little mystery (finding out who is in the amulet) and with that comes the characters that aren’t what/who they seem to be. It is an entertaining, uncomplicated listen.

This is the first book I’ve listened to by this narrator ( Shelley Reece ) and I would listen to another. She does a great job giving each character a distinct voice and personality her narration style is great and sucks you into the book.

There are no explicit sex scenes, or excessive violence. There is swearing.

Highly Recommend

Takin' It Back tells Aerie's Journey - it is fast paced and filled with wonderfully in depth characters that you quickly become invested in. The authors world building and descriptive writing make you feel as if you are seeing the story unfold. The narrator did a great job bringing the story and characters to life. I hope the author does a sequel and continues Aerie's journey

Good listen

This is a good, fun listen about a supernatural bounty hunter. The world it is set in is very well built and different and the main character is great.

Masterful Narration

I wasn’t sure what to expect but I enjoyed this audio book.
The narration was exceptional - I could listen over and over again. The characters really cane to life.

A great urban fantasy

I must say, I really quite enjoyed this one. The narration is really well done and the story is just fun. There is a good amount of action and some very quirky characters. I think this is a great urban fantasy story and one I would definitely follow as a series.

Lots of magic and a bit of suspense

I have to say I really enjoyed Takin' It Back. The narration was solid and I thin Shelley Reece was great voicing Aerie. It made her character that much more likable and I really felt the insecurities she felt and the need to prove herself. This book was also very well written and I really enjoyed the suspense of it and the twist was something I did not see coming. I liked the repo-man side of this story where Aerie repossesses magical objects. It was a very cool idea and I thought Aerie handles herself well when she had to defend herself when people attacked her. The other thing I really liked was the suspense part of it and the awesome twist. Takin' It Back was a very easy and fun read with plenty of magic.

Wild ride

I received this book for free at my request but the following review is of my own. This book is definitely a wild ride that doesn’t let go from the very beginning. aerie wants the new job at her dads shop but instead it seems she is always making him angry by losing things even though she’s great at what she does. Suddenly she’s possessed by her mother’s spirit which she’s only heard negative things about, but there is a hidden agenda and secrets that have been kept from her.

An intriguing new world of magic and mystery

Aerie is a magical bounty hunter. A sort of wing and hope for the best jump straight in type of character. I really enjoyed how the author has crafted this great lead character and also the world of magic and mystery in which the story is set. It's a great environment and from a pace perspective we jump in and strap ourselves in for the ride. There's no dull bits we have plenty of action filled story. All the main characters are great and there are even some less prominent ones that were interesting enough that I'd love to see more in any subsequent books (if planned). What is great is that we have a full story in the book. It's not deliberately written to set us up for another book/story. It's all here. The ending was very satisfactory and I enjoyed the book from the start to the finish. It's nice to see a full story in one and it will be interesting if the author wants to do other books using the world they have created. Very good
