For Selene Warren, being a witch is no big deal. She dabbles in harmless magic with her friends and never thinks much about it. However, when a stranger who seems to know her shows up at her studio and her grandmother is brutally attacked, her simple life becomes complicated. A world of elves, half elves, fae - and one peculiar Sekhmet named Femi - open up to her. She will discover that fairy tales are real, politics are ugly in any world, and there is a lot more to her life than she ever dreamed possible. This new reality threatens to swallow Selene whole, but with a forgotten past beating down her door, she will have to dive in to save her future.

Proud book worm!
When I first got this on audible....I thought yay another witchy book....I love these kinds. Oh boy...to much internal dialog and the main character is an idiot. I made it through the first book after numerous times of putting it down. The background support characters were more interesting then the main. I found them funny and engaging but it didn't help the main. I didn't like it....flat straight up.
I'm a wife a mom and love to read.
I wanted to love this. I didn't. Not even a little.
Selene, Selene, Selene,--this is one of those books that's truly 100% all about me, myself, and I...I stopped listening with 3 hours left.
In order not to spoil it or give away to much of the story, which there isn't very much to start with, I'll just say, I was expecting a book about a coven of which and ended up with a headache and no real clue as to what I was suppose to care about. Not Selene, Not the hot elf Prince, and not her friends (coven) whom we see little of.
As far as the reader goes, she's not horrible, a little breathy in parts, but it wasn't bad narration that kept me from liking this book, it was Selene both halves of her...
I posted a review on Goodreads under bookgk with spoilers.
Sci-fi, detective, cozy. Only give 5s to those books I think stand above the rest. 4 is a good solid book. 3 is average, nothing special.
Good concept. I like the exploration of how you'd feel if you couldn't remember an earlier portion of your life and how you'd interact with people that knew you before.
I really enjoyed this book . It was entertaining , and interesting throughout. It was very well read, and I can't wait to hear the next book .
