Three months ago, I landed a job as a bartender. But not at a bar-at a guild. Yeah, the magic kind.

I'm not a badass mage like my three smokin' hot best friends. I'm not a sorcerer or an alchemist, or even a wussy witch. I'm just a human, slinging drinks like a pro and keeping my non-magical nose out of mythic business. Seriously, I know my limits.

So why am I currently standing in a black-magic ritual circle across from a fae lord?

Somewhere behind me, my three mage friends are battling for their lives. Somewhere near my feet is the rogue witch I just knocked out with a stolen spell. And I have about five seconds to convince this very angry sea god not to shmoosh me like a bug.

I'm pretty sure this wasn't part of the job description.

Two Witches and a Whiskey by Annette Marie

Two Witches and a Whiskey is book three in The Guild Codex: Spellbound series by Annette Marie and narrated by Cris Dukehart. It’s an entertaining listen full of action and trouble.

Tori ends up moving into her own place. The authorities start sniffing around the Guild and so, Tori is told to stay away. Naturally she ends up getting involved in a dangerous ritual and finds herself in a pickle. She struggles in this installment; in that she’s afraid of losing her job, her friends, and her little place in the magical world. I ended up get frustrated with Torri in this book; because some of her decisions lacked the maturity that she has shown in previous books. She was also kind of whiny in this one.

As for a romance I’m a bit lost and not sure where its going.

We are treated too Kai and we get loads of background information on the lightning mage and his family. The adventure and magic are out of this world. What really makes this series is all the characters and they’re bonds that have formed. We are also treated to a plethora of magical creatures. I really enjoy all the new creatures that we meet.

Audio: The audio narration is fantastic! I love how the narrator pulls me into the story that I become engrossed, swept away into the magic, the adventure and whatever mayhem is happening. I highly recommend the audiobooks for this series.

Two Witches and a Whiskey ups the stacks and brings us loads of fast-paced action.

Rated: 3.5 Stars

  1. Too bad she felt a tad whiny and the romance seems off track, but glad there was so much else you loved.

    • Yes much more to enjoy. I still plan to listen on and continue the series. So many good reviews on this series.

  2. Thanks for sharing your review, Angela, I might have to read this one!

    • Happy Reading and you are welcome. I appreciate you visiting and checking out my review.

  3. I liked this one more than you did. But I don’t mind the romance being background to the action / plot. Although I was a little afraid early in the series this would be reverse harem which I don’t read.

    • I still haven’t figured out the romance angle in this series, but I’ve only listened unto book 4, so far. Need to return. Thanks for visiting!
