Everything was going fine for Quinn MacKenna…until she accidentally stole from Nate Temple. She knows how to drink, fight, and steal dangerous magical artifacts - but not for money. For favors. Because all her life she’s wanted only one thing - a secret so dangerous and well-guarded that no one will give it up. A ticket to the Land of the Fae so she can find her dad and finally get some answers about her past.

I love all the Templeverse books. However I have to admit that this Narrator and this book is my favorite combination so far. She absolutely Nails Quinn McKenna inflection and all. Great job on the other characters as well, especially when considering the multiple character diversity of accents and inflection required. Fantasy at its finest

This book series is killing me.Expecting decent plot, lots of action, but then you discover the treasure of the unexpected surprise. You get : Wars, Honor, fighting on multiple levels, betrayal& loyalty,family, friendship, love, cruel and malicious brutality, raw experience eloquently describing the beauty and beast of humanity. TV he deeper the plot the more you might question what makes you, you...

Her mood swings are easing off, she’s got a decent boyfriend, and best of all, the parents let her slide on being lazy. They understand it’s a little awkward to keep a job when daylight can kill her. Oh, and the whole magical powers thing is pretty cool, too. But after two weeks of quiet, her new normal blooms into a chaotic mess.

Aged Mother Jilo is wise in the ways of magic...but once upon a time, she was just a girl. 1950s Georgia: King Cotton has fallen. Savannah is known as the "beautiful woman with a dirty face," its stately elegance faded by neglect, its soul withering from racial injustice and political corruption. Young Jilo - fiercely independent, intelligent, and ambitious, but thwarted by Savannah's maddeningly genteel version of bigotry - finds herself forced to embrace a dark power that has pursued her family for generations, an ancient magic that may prove her salvation.

I am so glad the author decides to do background on my favorite character in this Series. We get to listen to some of her childhood experiences and understand her even more deeply. Mother Jilo was already a 3-D character. Love hearing the narrator take us from little girl through the elderly years with such fluidity.

To the uninitiated, Savannah shows only her bright face and genteel manner. Those who know her well, though, can see beyond her colonial trappings and small-city charm to a world where witchcraft is respected, Hoodoo is feared, and spirits linger. Mercy Taylor is all too familiar with the supernatural side of Savannah, being a member of the most powerful family of witches in the South. Despite being powerless herself, of course. Having grown up without magic of her own, in the shadow of her talented and charismatic twin sister, Mercy has always thought herself content.

Loren is a girl like any other - but with dreams larger than all the nine lands. Loren has grown up in the forests of the kingdom of Selvan, raised by cruel parents who see her only as a burden to be married off as quickly as possible. But driven by whispered tales around campfires in her youth, she has always dreamed of something greater. And something darker as well. After 15 years of toil, when the wishes of her heart have very nearly died out, a spark arrives to rekindle them.
