I really love how Jade makes the progression from always in her head to more able to confidently interact with those around her. It’s so rewarding to see that even though she struggles with social anxiety, she can still be tenacious and more than capable. And she found someone who can help!

I was so surprised by Con kissing her at the end! Hooray! But I also think it was so spot on for his character. He’s spent the last several centuries or more deciding what needs to be done, doing it, and getting away with it. And he’s been ahead of her the whole way, knowing who she is and choosing to stay. I am very much looking forward to how Jade handles him once she pulls herself out of her anxiety induced stupor! Ha!😊

Going back and reading Chapter 1 of The Queen’s Crown, where they’re interviewing Jade is hilarious! Leila is like, ‘Rigel would admire her stoicism,’ and Jade’s military-like posture, but we know now that Jade is absolutely DYING inside. She was probably relieved that Killian was the one interviewing her because she converses more easily with vampires.

Please tell me I’m not the only one who is rooting for these two couples!

I have yet to read any Magic on Main Street books yet (I like to wait and read them all at once), so I don’t know if my hope is realized in this series, but….

I so hope that Josh and Momoko finally get together! I was hoping they would and when I read the extra Court of Midnight and Deception & A Hall of Blood and Mercy short story, “How to Train with Vampires,” I squealed out loud because it seemed like Josh liked Momoko! Momoko can totally understand Josh’s odd humor and I think he would roll with her humor and mischievousness too (pretty sure she can get him to partake in her shenanigans, too) !

I also am rooting for Celestina and Lord Linus! They seem like a good fit; they both love weapons and are expert sword-smiths, and they are both individually strong and independent (which I think they need in a partner). Plus I want Lord Linus to find love again (Bethany did and I just hope that he does too). Celestina needs a strong person, as well as someone who can bring out her softer side, and Lord Linus seems like he would do that for her; he is a strong and powerful individual but has a knack for making people laugh and lightening the mood. 🙂

Go Team Josh and Momoko!
Go Team Celestina and Lord Linus!

I hope I’m not the only one who wants these two couples!!! 🙂

I have so many mixed feelings about this book. I will say I LOVED the Killian short. It added so much that was missing. Jade/Con are probably my least favorite couple so far. There are things I like about them but maybe it was how much of the story was in Jades head that made it harder for me to devour the books like I typically do. Was anyone else actually annoyed about Con kissing Jade without her permission? When I read that portion it felt like she was in shock and not accepting or reciprocating. I almost just pictured her standing there lips closed and acting like a shocked fish. It made me mad on her behalf…. how dare he leave her and then show up and kiss her without permission.


January 24, 2024 at 07:25 AM UTC

Absolutely.. I remarked on it in an earlier comment. It was so discordant to me because earlier in the book Jade displayed significant emotional intelligence in asking Connor why he was suddenly being so touchy feely, and when he asked if it mattered and she said, yeah, “if you want me to reciprocate”. She’s pretty evolved in her emotional agency there, and I that is totally absent in in that last scene.


January 22, 2024 at 06:56 AM UTC

You can also see Chloe the black cat across both Jade 1 &2, but it makes me wonder whether Jade book 3 will be before or after Chloe book 3. Also, it does mention that Jade has a new modified uniform, so I think she ditched the mask because there is no way Gisila and a bunch of mercenaries are gonna keep their mouths about about her identity.

actualy, jade’s books take place around pip’s series, not chloe’s.
I defenetly agree on the mask, though.

Actually, I don’t think this was the only book that ended without a cliffhanger. Chloe’s story didn’t feel like much of a cliffhanger either.
It’s just really difficult waiting until April. I’m REALLY looking forward to their first patrol.
I also like that you have a character with social anxiety. The scenes where Jade is mentally over planning how to approach her co-workers and neighbors is something I can totally relate to.

I’m sorry for all of the health issues that have slowed you down. I hope some improvement has been made on that end.

I’m sure the Regional Magical Committee would love it if they knew that the new vamp in town is one that can even rattle Killian.


January 25, 2024 at 10:57 PM UTC

Lol, I never thought about rattling Killian Thank You! I’m off to read them again 🤗🤗


January 17, 2024 at 10:04 PM UTC

For the second book, I didn’t do a review so much as a character study. The characters are so interesting and well drawn that I could see what brought these two totally disparate characters together. Also, some of the things I speculated in my review about Considine I realized had been answered in book one: he dates from the archaic Greek/ classic Creek era and his olive-toned skin suggests he comes from somewhere around the Adriatic. I also totally forgot Jade’s introduction/interview in book 3 of the Court of Midnight and Deception (even though I have already reread both books), so was glad other readers mentioned it.

I did have a bit of a hard time getting into Jade’s character in Book 1 because she was so into her head rather than the plot being advanced by dialogue and action. But that ended after a third of the story when she was more out of her head and interacting more with her team and Connor.
The other thing that was a little off for me was the epilogue. Considine tells her he fancies her and then kisses her in front of her team. In book 2, when he was showing her more physical affection — touching her hair and putting his arm around her — she asked him if there was a reason for this. He questioned why it mattered, and she said “It does if you want me to reciprocate.” That was excellent emotional intelligence on her part and a clearly expressed requirement for mutual consent which, in the epilogue, he totally blasted through. That didn’t ring true to me, even from a controlling, manipulative ancient vampire.

Lastly, a lot of the replies are saying they wish they’d seen more of Killian’s reactions to Considine’s compulsion-command to vampires to help him save Jade. During the dinner with Considine’s stepchildren and Killian, some of that actually revealed itself. When Considine put a compelling “Enough” to stop the snake brats’ insults about humans and wizards, Killian wasn’t bothered, but Considine was. It was clear to me that Killian noticed how unusual an emotional reaction this was from Considine, who despised humans. He began to suspect something going on with Considine and a human, and was laughing up his sleeve during the drive back. Kitty’s new short story “The Annoyed Eminence” fills us in on that somewhat, from Killian’s perspective. I really appreciated reading it.


January 16, 2024 at 01:19 AM UTC

I loved the book! It is kind of upsetting that Considine is running out of pet names for Jade, but I love the research paper that Jade has to do for Sarge (after all that research, she still doesn’t understand it!). I’m also thrilled to see Considine losing control over his emotions when Jade was injured. I am a little upset that the kiss at the end of the book didn’t zero in on Jade’s teammates’ reactions and I would have preferred it if Sarge had been more shocked instead of unemotional.
All in all, this was a great book! I love Jade’s prowess in weapons and fighting and it’s amazing how she and Considine are so evenly matched.
Also (because of what Claire said in a previous comment) I reread the Gate of Myth and Power trilogy and I noticed areas where Jade was mentioned. I really love these Magiford series as they are all interconnected with each other and involve rereading to get the full picture as things slip from memory after a while.
I love all the humour in all of Kitty’s books! This book is great! Can’t wait for book 3!


January 15, 2024 at 09:31 PM UTC

I enjoyed the book. I appreciated Jade’s character development coming through in the final battle: she was focused on the team and getting word to headquarters. Yes, she was fighting the fight. But she was leading the team as a unit, not running ahead and expecting them to figure it out how to support her or fight on their own. It did help alot when she found out she was the defacto team lead, even from the perspective of her superiors.

I also desperately want to see the conversation between Con and Killian while Jade was in recovery. I would like to think Killian gave some helpful insight about choosing to lean in and love rather than walling yourself off.

Finally, what is significant about Ambrose’s ring? Is it more than just a keepsake?


January 16, 2024 at 11:45 AM UTC

Yeah, I thought she was definitely better by that last battle, so I’m not sure why Sarge assigned more pages to her paper. Is it punishment for going home and almost dying? She was disoriented and it’s not her fault she didn’t know help was right behind her, only that a major threat was. Or punishment for getting separated from the group at the alley? But going directly after her team would’ve put her right in front of the mercenaries, and that’s a no-win situation.


January 15, 2024 at 05:22 PM UTC

Another fun book, loved it!
Hilarious how the Paragon was snorring in the library, and how nice that we got a glimps of Hazel.
Great that Con becomes Jade’s partner.
I am very curious about what is going on with Gisela and Tutu. Hopefully that next book will be more prominent. Could Gisela be part of the secret organization? Or is this just a sibling feud? Why only use go betweens?
And what’s up with the Telliers? Why are they so desperate that know one enters there home? Are they keeping the real Adept prisoner or that missing woman?
The only thing I miss every now and then in this book is knowing what’s going on with the Drakes. I would have really enjoyed reading about Killian getting word of the chaos Considine causes when he doesn’t know what to do with an injured Jade.

Nicole, again, possibly feverish (COVID is no bueno)

January 15, 2024 at 01:47 AM UTC

Just finished my first full re-read (reading slower; COVID, ugh). I revise my opinion about the ending. Previous books have separated the protagonists at the end of book two, or at least had them moving in very different directions. Well, we know Con is all-in on the relationship. He’s decided his two options were 1. break ties before he falls for her or 2. fall for her but make sure she’s protected. He’s decided it’s #2.

Jade hasn’t really reacted to his interest. Hasn’t had a chance. Plus he’s dropped his emotional bombshell with an audience (something I’m sure her social anxiety totally appreciates) AND at work. Rude. He’s assumed she’ll reciprocate his feelings and he’s put her in a position where her career is on the line if she refuses to work with him. And in a situation where she will be reluctant to speak up (because there are other folks).

Her family are likely to see this as a vampire using his clout to force himself into her life (and they aren’t entirely wrong).

I hope he gets a little bit of humbling (not a lot, just a weeny bit) before they wind up together for realz.


January 20, 2024 at 12:50 AM UTC

Public gestures are not romantic! They are cringy!!!


January 15, 2024 at 08:33 AM UTC

“I hope he gets a little bit of humbling (not a lot, just a weeny bit) before they wind up together for realz.”

Yeah. He needs it, and yeah that was a terrible way to tell her.


January 15, 2024 at 02:58 AM UTC

I definitely agree with the Con’s behavior at the end. No matter how much I like a guy, if he kisses me for the first time in a public place without my consent, it’s grounds for SERIOUS punishment. That being said, I do love the both of them and how they interact. I like how comfortable they are with each other.


January 15, 2024 at 02:15 AM UTC

I like calling him Con so much! Big fan of puns and wordplay here, and I hope the squad or someone calls him that at least part of the time. I know he already has a code name, but he totally tried to con her… 😉


January 15, 2024 at 12:05 AM UTC

Wow I loved the ending so much!! I thought Considine might end up on the task force since it’s sort of implied in Chloe’s trilogy but I didn’t think it would happen book 2! Can’t wait to see how they work together (and how the other task force members react). Really excited for book three with all these House Tellier, Gisela, and missing woman loose ends.
Loved all of the Drake vampire cameos in this one too! Killian especially had some great moments.


January 15, 2024 at 04:31 PM UTC

Wait, I totally missed that it was implied in Chloe’s series. That’s going to bug me now. 100% love the ending- I would die- but it made me too happy to have it end any other way. Also, it fit his character more than any other course of action I feel. The kissing bit may have been a bit much a bit fast- if only for Jades sensibilities. Also, Sarges response (of no response) was also hysterical


January 14, 2024 at 10:50 PM UTC

Each female lead character from each series has helped magic or a certain type of magical being. I’m curious how or if Jades character will help the vampires create more vampires. I don’t think it’s going that way but I would love to see them finding a way to improve that.

I was just rereading pack of dawn and destiny and there was Jade and Connor helping clean up after Rafe trying to get rid of Greyson.

I have enjoyed this last trilogy and I can’t wait until the next book!


January 16, 2024 at 11:30 AM UTC

I gotta reread that coz as I read the epilogue, I thought I remembered her having a partner. Anyway, I was also wondering if vampires have their version of a Wolf’s Kiss. And how is Jade gonna live with Considine? He can’t keep her alive like Keri coz her blood’s poisonous. Even if he can heal through it, I wonder if her blood would reject it.

I have so many questions now!


January 14, 2024 at 08:59 PM UTC

I, too, would love to hear that conversation with Killian when Considine comes clean and asks for his help getting on Jade’s team. Pretty sure Killian doesn’t lift a finger until the snake-brats are removed from Drake Hall.

Probably why it took a week for Considine to show up at muster.


January 16, 2024 at 11:25 AM UTC

Eh, getting hired and starting a new job can take time, even for supernaturals, and especially for law enforcement. Chloe’s brother wasn’t able to transfer to Magiford overnight, and he actually has law enforcement experience. And considering *who* Considine is, I think the task force would be hesitant about hiring him, despite his saving Jade. I’m rather surprised that it *only* took 1 week for him to start, rather than “geeze, a whole week?” The Curia Cloisters do love their paperwork.


January 15, 2024 at 02:59 AM UTC

Amen! I’m also curious about what went on during that week.


January 14, 2024 at 01:19 AM UTC

A cliffhanger is something that leaves you in suspense. And Kitty said she didn’t use one, but I think it is the nature of suspense that she changed. While not all of the relational questions were answered, there was enough tension between Jade and Connor/Considine left unanswered that you want to know more, this one just didn’t leave you feeling like you just watched a train wreck of obliviousness and emotional miscommunication/ misunderstanding. With Kitty’s usual writing style I was shocked to realize that the last chapter was not the end of the book. Usually the couple breaks all contact at the end of book two and they didn’t in this one. It was a fun and refreshing change. It also fit Jade and Con-something in a way it wouldn’t have fit several of the other couples due to circumstances and personalities.

I need to go back and read the rest of the Magiford books to see if some of the things that have been bothering me line up. For some reason, even though this is jumping back in time I have been bothered by the clock tower. Also, at the end of the pack of dawn and destiny series, Jade is mentioned offhandedly as sniffing someone. I haven’t looked it up yet, so this is all from memory but… it must have been pretty obvious what she was doing, implying she is not wearing a mask, and if so does this also overlap with that book? Because Jade wore a mask at work for what feels like 99% of the first two books. Like I said, I need to reread everything to really line up where this trilogy forts within the rest of them.


January 16, 2024 at 06:47 AM UTC

I have read so many romance trilogies that have the couple split up/torn apart either at the end of book 2 or at the beginning of book 3, that it was really nice to not have that happen in this series. I mean every trilogy has its reasons for the apart-ness of the couple, but it has become an overdone storyline and you can almost see it coming.
No Jade doesn’t seem to be wearing the mask in the later books, but my guess is that with Con by her side, no one messes with her!


January 14, 2024 at 10:25 PM UTC

I was thinking there might be a break between the couple at the end of book 2 as well. But I just finished rereading book 2 of Pack of Dawn and Destiny and there was no break at the end of that one. Pip was taking Greyson to task over the matebond when Hector called about the information leak. That was the cliffhanger in that one.

So that gave me hope for this book 2! And yay! I love the way it ended with no break but definite suspense about a lot of things.

Book Dragon

January 14, 2024 at 02:51 AM UTC

I think that at the end of the second book, and I mean in the epilogue, she stops wearing a mask. I would definitely like some clarification on this, though.


January 16, 2024 at 07:46 AM UTC

Yeah, no mask. I think the dragon shifter crushed it, and maybe she has no spares?


January 16, 2024 at 11:15 AM UTC

She said she had spares, and she’s responsible enough that it wouldn’t have been a lie. They’re at muster, and she doesn’t put it on until she’s leaving the task force area. She’s obviously not concerned about hiding her identity from her direct colleagues. The timeline though is a little unclear. I’m sure she was on day shift when she met Chloe et al, and she couldn’t have been wearing a mask since I believe it was noted she had red hair. However, the clocktower is just being started here, whereas in those books it was being finished, so it would seem she possibly does stop wearing the mask. Unless all this jumping around is mixing up details in my head.


January 16, 2024 at 11:18 AM UTC

I also want to point out it’s her 2nd night back on the job, and she had no idea she was getting a partner, let alone that it would be Considine. It’s unfathomable that she’d have decided to stop wearing a mask immediately.


January 13, 2024 at 09:41 PM UTC

I really want to get into house tellier! I’m thinking the missing human might be in there.


January 16, 2024 at 10:59 AM UTC

Ohhhh, I didn’t even think about that! That is definitely something House Tellier wouldn’t want the Curia Cloisters to see. Now I need to re-read the part where Jade accidentally made the wizards defensive on their first house call.


January 13, 2024 at 08:49 PM UTC

With the way Considines epilogue was developing, I really thought we would be left standing there at the end of the book, waving our hands and shouting, NOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! at Considine. I’m so use to the second book ending in pain, anger, and confusion. But this ending was fantastic and completely unexpected. Well Done! Kitty!


January 13, 2024 at 12:31 PM UTC

Omg…. I love love love the Magiford world building ❤️❤️❤️ I will be impatiently waiting for April… and to hear more news about the next books being written into the Magiford World. I’m the meantime, I’ll just go reread all of them ❤️


January 13, 2024 at 12:21 PM UTC

Honestly adored all the meal nicknames! You can expand with things like Nibble or even food names like Potato Chip!

Also, totally love the mutated Go Fish game! I think they should continue to make up new rules until they decide to go ahead and rename the game entirely!

Feel better soon! No matter how sick you are, it’s no fun, and so hard to get back to it! I’m just getting over Covid myself, so I have a lot of empathy for your suffering. Sleep is your friend!


January 16, 2024 at 06:49 AM UTC

I think they might need to create a rule book and special deck of cards at the rate they are going! And of course it needs a new name for it.


January 14, 2024 at 12:02 PM UTC

Oooh wouldn’t
“Magiford supernatural go fish cards” be a fun tourism item? Especially with the werewolves… you could have 2 cards for each werewolf. Or right side up human/upside down wolf “face cards”
And of course the Paragon would have to be the old maid.


January 15, 2024 at 04:55 PM UTC

It would be fun merchandise for Kitty to sell.


January 15, 2024 at 03:02 AM UTC

😄 I love the idea of the paragon as the old maid!! I also loved the mutating go fish game!


January 14, 2024 at 07:03 PM UTC

I dunno, according to their invented game, the Old Maid is pretty bloodthirsty… (not that the Paragon couldn’t be bloodthirsty if he felt like it, but Aphrodite wouldn’t approve!)


January 13, 2024 at 12:24 PM UTC

Oh, and let’s not forget Considine’s amazing powers! No idea ever of being able to control all vampires in basically a city-sized space! So inventive! Love it!


January 13, 2024 at 11:29 AM UTC

Such a great book, however a question that has come to mind is what is the dragon hierarchy like. Are they like other shifters in having alphas, are they covered by family heads like magical humans, do they have monarchs like elves and fae, or do they have something else.

I am really looking forward to book three.

As a side note there are now over 100 combined reviews on the various Amazon and Goodreads websites.

Book Dragon

January 15, 2024 at 03:56 AM UTC

I think because they’re loners, they don’t have much of a hierarchy, and if they do, it’s highly informal or has something to do with their family lines. it could be something like ‘oh, you’re more powerful than me, but that doesn’t matter, you handle your business, I’ll handle mine’

there was also a line in this latest one where it said that Gisela’s relatives would come for Con if he killed her, unless she did something to disgrace the family line. so the dragon shifter hierarchy is probably tied to that.


January 13, 2024 at 06:51 AM UTC

My favorite scene in the entire series is definitely the last scene in book2. I love how scrambled Jade’s brain was through it. I can’t deny I was rather shocked myself.


January 13, 2024 at 08:46 AM UTC

I was also incredibly shocked, but in a good way! Best. Ending. Ever.


January 13, 2024 at 05:38 AM UTC

Definitely want someone to help Jade understand people! Also to check in on that poor wizard house. Love Jade’s utter confusion about her elder vampire’s confession. 🙂


January 13, 2024 at 04:24 AM UTC

How many games do you have to mash together before it needs a new name? Old Maid Fish is getting out of hand! And so funny!

Tellier is absolutely having house issues, so the Elite or somebody really ought to go *help* them out, don’t you think?

And I am curious about Clarence. Jade thinks he’s nervous around her, but I wonder if there’s more to it than that.


January 13, 2024 at 07:31 AM UTC

Yes, and what does the change in Clarence’s neck gear mean? Is there a subtler reason?


January 13, 2024 at 03:29 AM UTC

I was pleasantly surprised with the ending of the book. The Magiford series thus far have had a pattern of the couple separating at the end of the second book, but it make sense that Considine is too smart to do that to himself or Jade. If only the rest of the heroes figured it out sooner!


January 16, 2024 at 10:48 AM UTC

I expected that as well, and since I didn’t want to go back to the table of contents, I kept thinking the last couple of chapters were it. And then the book went on, and we even got that epilogue!


January 13, 2024 at 01:32 AM UTC

I was right about Considine joining the task force as Jade’s partner! I was a little surprised at how quickly Considine decided how to deal with his feelings, but considering how much he dislikes waffling and whining it makes sense.

It was good to see Jade’s EQ grow a little and for her to make some positive progress in baking and relationships.

I knew the Telliers were up to no good. I think the house is all but rejecting them as this point. That or/or its magic might be so weak it can’t do much. Makes me wonder at the more obvious ways it can show discontent. Considering the importance of blood ties in the relationship between a House and its Adept I wonder 1) what options there are when a bloodline dies out 2) if there are other relatives who take over as adept/heir 3) if any are not awful


January 14, 2024 at 12:05 PM UTC

Right, I’m wondering if the house will adopt the O’Neil family of slayers!


January 13, 2024 at 12:45 AM UTC

Well, no, that’s definitely not a cliffhanger! First read done, review done. About to have a bite to eat and go back to re-read to catch all the bits I missed.

I do not know if it counts to have the Paragon snoozing – he’s not really IN the book so much as in the scenery. 🙂

All that being said, I’m re-reading because I didn’t quite grasp why the dragon shifter didn’t do whatever needed to be done (29 days?) and instead sent her mercs after Jade & co. I mean, yes, get her out of the way, but why focus on her when you’ve a time crunch?

Also, I really really want to go into House Tellier now. Just to have a look-see. If the house isn’t listening to the adept, who IS it listening to? Why have vamps and wolves visit?

Nope, I really do need to re-read from the beginning again.


January 16, 2024 at 06:53 AM UTC

Maybe the house doesn’t like them anymore so it’s not obeying them. But the adept kept that quiet which might be one reason why he was scared to let them in, because it wouldn’t kick them out like the heir thought it would.


January 16, 2024 at 10:00 AM UTC

My guess is House Tellier was hiding objects or beings they didn’t want the Curia Cloisters to know about.


January 13, 2024 at 05:19 AM UTC

Regarding The dragon shifter, I think that her going after Jade was chalked up to dragons carrying grudges. She got irritated with Jade previously and wanting to get her was enough to cause her to make poor decisions when it came to a choice between focusing on one or the other


January 14, 2024 at 02:56 AM UTC

I think it’s more than a grudge. I think she’s going after Jade for a different reason.

Bethany Aich

January 14, 2024 at 06:31 AM UTC

Guess we will see in April!


January 12, 2024 at 11:51 PM UTC

That ending! Considine is such an interesting vampire, I can’t wait to see what else he has up his sleeve!
I personally loved this book-hook ending, it was nice to have a place to rest a couple of months without being on tenterhooks, but still hook enough for us to want more!

I personally loved the part where a certain elder was panicking when he didn’t know what to do with an injured Jade…


January 13, 2024 at 07:02 AM UTC

I really hope we get to read what happened when Considine finally had to come clean to Killian about what he’d been up to… plus I hope we get to see some Hazel finally!


January 14, 2024 at 01:03 PM UTC

I too am longi g for Killian to tell his side of the hospital run.


January 13, 2024 at 04:17 AM UTC

Ditto! Especially about the panicking. Considine started to sound like a snake-brat for a minute there.

He’s totally going to be studying up on how to care for your slayer/wizard, isn’t he!?!

I can’t wait to see how the rest of the night shift reacts to having an elder vampire on their team…


January 14, 2024 at 02:58 AM UTC

Jade just walks into work one day and Considine is reading “How to Care for Your Slayer” and Jade is just beyond confused. 😂😂

Bethany Aich

January 14, 2024 at 06:30 AM UTC



January 13, 2024 at 05:36 AM UTC

And the only elder vampire still up and about because his best friend knew how to make sure he stayed that way even after he was dead and gone.


January 12, 2024 at 11:31 PM UTC

Oh my goodness! I can’t even!! The ending was so amazing and had me wheezing with joy- if that’s a thing. Loved it so much!


January 12, 2024 at 11:30 PM UTC

Ma’am. First of all, that book was fantastic, but if you think that THAT was not a cliff hanger… we might not be hanging off the cliff, but we are standing on the edge.
Absolutely loved this book, and it completely took my mind off the fact that I currently can’t breathe through my nose. It did set off a couple of coughing fits, whether from laughs or gasps, but that is not really the book’s fault.


January 12, 2024 at 11:42 PM UTC

I hope you get better soon!


January 12, 2024 at 11:46 PM UTC

Thank you! It’s just the regular seasonal gunk, so it should pass soon, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t irritating, lol


January 15, 2024 at 03:04 AM UTC

😄 I love the idea of the paragon as the old maid!! I also loved the mutating go fish game!

Greetings, Champions! The Games of Enemies and Allies is officially released! Did you read it yet? I'm bringing back the tradition of a Spoiler Post because I want to give you blog-reading Champions a place to voice your reading thoughts during this initial book launch so please talk away! Warning: If you are waiting to read this series until all the books are out, or if you haven't gotten a chance to read The Games of Enemies and Allies yet, then I'd suggest waiting before you check out the rest of the post or read the comments, or you'll spoil the story for yourself!

As usual, I've will be writing short story as my "thank you" for the launch of this new book and for it reaching 100 reviews--that's 100 honest reviews pooling from Goodreads and all the Amazon stores!  Reviews and ratings are a big deal for authors. Honest reviews can help readers decide if a book is their thing or not, and I'm so thankful that you're willing to spend your time leaving a review--which is why I'm happy to write the shorts! And this time I got the short story finished ahead of time so based on how quickly the reviews showed up for book 1, you can expect to see the short story....very soon. (Hahaha, thank you Champions, you are the best!) But until then, let's talk spoilers!

So, Champions, most of the other Magiford books end book 2 with a cliff hanger but since I knew there was going to be a wait for book #3 I decided to get rid of the usual cliff hanger - did it surprise you? What has been your favorite scene in the series so far? What are you looking forward to seeing in the last book?
