Publisher's Summary

The Ancients, a race of creatures between gods and monsters, are trapped in Canderfey. Fighting for their home, the University, and the remaining residents of the town, Joanna and her coven are in daily peril. When one of the Ancients escapes the boundary, the coven is separated, Isaac traveling in search of a solution to the turmoil of the summer.  

As days wear on, can Joanna and her coven keep their warrior spirit, or have they been fighting too hard and too long? Perhaps the Ancients - older, more powerful, and impossible to kill-are an obstacle too enormous to overcome.

Will Canderfey be saved and the coven free to live in peace? Or will the cages, keeping Ancients in and magic out, crumble and set chaos loose upon the world?

Contains mature themes.

this review is for all 4 books in the series

If you enjoy sappy romantic frivolous nonsense this book is for you.
This book had true potential but was really only a really simple and straightforward love story where the love just appears for no reason I can see. Joanna has an almost constant woe is me attitude "oh these men are so amazing and I'm so worthless" over and over again. It gets ridiculous and frustrating really fast. She has no spine or self respect and her conviction that she's worthless without magic sickens me. she does mostly get over this by the end of the series but not in a way that makes sense to me. Then she figures out that she has magic she's imeadelety on board with the relationship. At 27 years old I would expect her to not act like a 13 year old. Then she tries to leave them for their own good and 10 minutes later she's fucking Aiden and promising to never do it again.
Everything in this series happens way too fast and way too easily, there is little to no tension or build up. I almost think she wrote the sex scenes first and the rest of the story was just filler, The only reason I continued with this story after the first book is because I liked the idea of a librarian Wordsmith so much. I wish a different author had had the idea though, one that could do it justice. I don't think this author ever got the advice; show don't tell. It's good advice for authors and I wish she would do more of it.
At first I didn't think I liked the narrator's but by the end of the series I thought they were pretty good, they just took some getting used to.

A great conclusion!

This book was so good! I loved how the unlikely friendship formed and how there were actual consequences that made the big battle actually mean something. If this series were a movie, I'd watch the heck out of it. I'll probably reread later. The only thing I didn't like was the male narrator's voice for Bryce. I also thought they could have used the strivens magic to make a lot of things easier and they didn't and it didn't make sense to me.
