Publisher's Summary

After the events of Shadow Hunt (and the short story "Nativity," found in Companion Pieces), Los Angeles null Scarlett Bernard finds herself more out of her depth than ever before.

Cleaning up crime scenes and juggling supernatural politics is hard enough, but now Scarlett must face changes to every part of her personal and professional lives. What happens when the world's most powerful null goes on parental leave?

And what will the Old World have waiting for her when she comes back?

This novel-length story is structured as diary entries, recorded by Scarlett as she faces her most terrifying trial yet: motherhood.

Not a great installment to this series...

I have really liked both this and the boundary magic series until now. The format of this book is ridiculous and why is there so much focus on breast feeding?? It's totally off putting. The story is also extremely weak and I really don't feel as though the author really wanted to write this book. If there is another book in this story line written in this fashion I will most likely be skipping it.

The only reason I made it all the way through is that as always Amy McFadden did an excellent job with the narration.

Don’t like format

The book was OK but I really did not care for the journal format. It was disjointed

Original

I love Scarlet Bernard adventures since the first book, she is my favorite character of the old world, but I expected so much more, the narrator flawlessly brought Scarlet to life, made her shine, and saved the day. . Despite my disappointment, she still my favorite, I love her attitude, her honestly and her courage.

Entertaining

Interesting story with a mystery to solve. Annie will likely turn into an incredible paranormal though give Scarlet and team a few heart attacks along the way. The narrator did a good job with providing unique voices for each character and appropriate tone inflections for each scene.

Yet another fun session with Scarlett.

I have flown through this series and not only do I positively adore Melissa's style of writing, but Amy McFadden has hands down become one of my favorite narrators. Her reading and Olson's writing mesh so wonderfully together!

I'm so happy i saved this book for a rainy day, and it has legit been raining for daaays. it's been a couple months since i re-listened to all the Lex and Scarlett books, and at the time, i needed a bit of a change. so i saved it and hearing it now, i remembered how much i love Scarlett and Everyone and what an amazing job Amy McFadden does at bringing them all to great life!
i only wish for more more more! I will never get enough of the Old World, or of everyone in it!

Mom 🧠

Good story premise, but diary style effects the flow, and it does somewhat detract. Author is great though, so if one has not already been spoiled by her other books, this one won't seem "less spectacular". There IS still an unfolding storyline that holds interest, AND it offers some accurate insights into how motherhood REALLY DOES effect some moms lives personally, professionally, and often unpredictably!

Born Magic is different from the other books in this series but it's just as entertaining. I look forward to the next book in this series.

Scarlet does it again

I love this series of books but as usual this one could go further with Annie growing up but I guess time will tell. I love almost all the characters even though Daschle could show a little empathy from time to time. But then again that wouldn’t be Daschle. Also Corey has her own thing I’ve been coming. Can’t wait to see what might happen. Melissa I love your writings.

Strange

I really struggled with this book , to be honest had I not purchased the audio book I would have given it a miss a bit like the last episode of lost ?
really enjoyed all the other books both about Scarlett and Lex but this one was about babies and breast feeding a bit of a let down.
