A questing we will go
Now that the Magic, Spells, and Illusions, Inc. team has defeated the nefarious Spellworks, the only "competition" in town, Katie Chandler doesn't have much to do as director of marketing, and she's starting to question her role at MSI. Her boyfriend Owen Palmer, on the other hand, is in hog heaven, translating an ancient and powerful magical manuscript. But then he finds that the cryptic text describing the location of an enchanted gem known as the Eye of the Moon has radically changed. This deadly stone gives its holder enhanced power over others and a craving for more power. It once caused a terrible war before it was safely hidden and then lost - and now it seems to be in New York and set in an elven brooch that renders its wearer invulnerable. Whoever has this brooch could take over the world.
Katie and Owen must find it before anyone else does, and they're not the only ones searching. They'll need all the help they can get, including Katie's visiting grandmother. But who can they trust when their allies fall under its spell? Not to mention the new enemies who are deadlier than anything they've faced before.

Supernatural Fiction is my Achilles Heel.
I was hooked...from the first book in the series right down to the this last one. It was a world I didn't want to exit upon the ending of the fist book in the series. So within a week I had listed to all of them..and now I'm left wanting...and waiting for the next one.
Being from Texas I totally loved Eva Wilhelm's southern drawl. I loved the easy flow of the narrative and the easily recognizable voice of the characters.
I really like this one because Granny visits NY and plays a much larger role than in previous books. I like Granny. Spunky. Smart. Just imagine Granny on a flying carpet. Or Granny in Grand Central Station. Such fun.
I'm a big fan of this series - absolutely addicted, in fact. However, this is my least favorite in the series, as it is very different than the others. Still a good story, with characters I adore, but it was one non-stop race, which didn't feel realistically possible - something that hadn't felt the case in the other books in the series. I can suspend belief rather successfully even in the most fantastic of stories, but I found it harder to do so in this book - who can run for that many hours? How many times are we supposed to believe the narrow escapes? And how can all of this have happened in such a short period of time?
I still gave five stars because I enjoyed the basic premise, and the characters are the same wonderful characters, and I was glad to visit them again. I do hope to continue seeing more books in this series - I really do love it. I just hope we don't see this hard-to-believe race-like format in the future.
Keystone cops gone bad. It is one lone chase and became very old and very boring very quickly. The only thing good I can say about this book is that Granny is visiting Katie in NYC and she is a riot.
