Publisher's Summary

Sam, a half-fae Void, is ostracized by her own people, much less the humans who control her home - the Illinois Mystical Reservation. Packed into the Reservation with vampires, werewolves, faes, and mages alike, Sam does her best to travel below the radar, but when her only friend asks for her help, she can’t say no. Her work to solve a fae’s murder brings her to the forefront of vampire politics, and changes her life forever.

I want MORE!

Audiobook’s that are short usually don’t appeal to me because I think oh the story will be rushed but no I didn’t feel like that with Cornered Magic at all.

We really got a feel for who Sam is and what she is about. We learn of her gift and how she almost fears it, what she has to live with. It isn’t easy to be what she is but she is doing the best that she can.
We get a little mystery going on and it sucks you into the story, I want more. It wasn’t enough but I never felt like the story was lacking or being pushed to hurry and be done.
I am also not much for “magic” as in witches and what not and though this has a “magic” feel it really isn’t like the ones I don’t like if anything I am more interested in how Sam’s gift works.

Eagerly wanting more, the narrator was great I like the cadence of her voice, she didn’t sound overly anything just exactly as I pictured Sam to be in my head. I really liked that.

I NEED BOOK 2 NOW!!!!

I really enjoyed this story. I love Sam and her personality. She knows what she wants and isn't afraid to go after it. Charissa's writing is very unique and tells a great story!!

Can't wait for book 2 in the Void series.

This listen is def worth a credit.

I’m hooked!

This short really sets the stage for what could be a phenomenal series. The characters and setting are well developed. I really like the setup. I’ll be anxiously awaiting the next book in The Void Series!

Both the author and narrator are new to me. They make a great team and I look forward to their next releases.

Wonderful Start To A New Series!

I found this story to be a great introduction to a new series that I will continue. The main character was engaging and well rounded. The details of the world were enough to give you knowledge but not bog down the story. The secondary characters had purpose and added to moving to plot forward. I cannot wait to see what is next for Sam.

I will add that I also enjoyed the narration of this book. The narrators voice and flow fit the character and the dialogue.

Great Story! Great Listen🎧 4.5 Terrific Stars🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

This is an imaginative, well written, well told story, a great beginning of a new paranormal/fantasy series. Charissa DuFour creates an interesting world and characters. The storylines are original and grab your attention from the start and holds it to the end, making you wonder what is going to happen next. The character development is great, as is the description of the different supernatural species and their powers. I am looking forward to learning more about them as the series continues especially the lead character, Sam, a half-fae Void. Also going to be interesting to learn more about the dynamic of the world the author created and where she is going with her story.

I listened to the Audible edition, Janelle Tedesco is a wonderful narrator. She performs the voices of all the characters, brings them and their story to life from the pages to your ears. Thank you for this great listen!

Fantastic!

So glad I started this series. It has reinvigorated my interesting the genre. The characters are so well described and the voice actor has done a great job differentiating between the moods and cast throughout the entire book. I can’t wait to start part II.

A Awesome Read!!!~

Cornered Magic wad a GREAT read! Lot's of plot twist and turns that wanting me to read more. Sam grew up in an unhappy home being a haft-fae void that set out to help a friend in need getting Sam way over her head. I thought it was neat that mages alike were living together having conflicts with each other. This is the first book that I've read by Charissa Dufour and I just love her amazing storytelling. I can not wait to read what will happen next in The Void Series!!!~

Great stuff but want more!

I really enjoyed the world building and overall premise. I found the story to be very original. It was just too short. I would love to see this as a Netflix mini-series.

Cornered Magic

I loved this book! Sam is a pariah among fae and human alike.Her father wants her out of the house when he is there.She is not quite sure how much power is behind her gift,but soon she will find out. Janelle Tedesco was a fine narrator. I was given this book by the narrator,author or publisher free for an honest review.

A Unique Beginning

I love the aspect that Sam is a void, very refreshing choice. Very well written prequel that lets us see what this series is about and it does not disappoint. I absolutely can't wait for the next book in this series.

The narrator did a fantastic job bringing out Sam as a character. Excellent performance and I'm excited to hear more books by this narrator!

I love this book!

I got an audiobook copy of book 1 for free from Audiobook Boom, but as soon as I finished it, I immediately went about purchased book 2 in the series.

Now I am just waiting for book 3 (and beyond) to get turned into Audiobooks too, so I can add them to my listen-list.

Anyway, if I could put my finger on why I like the series, its mostly due to Sam’s ability, I am really interested in seeing just how powerful she really is. So far, I think she has only begun to scratch the surface of what she can do.

A Great Introduction To A New Series!

This book introduces a world where all supernatural groups are now living in reservations controlled by the human government.
Our story is about a young women Samantha who has been ostracized by her own people the fae. Sam is a Void which she has no magical ability, but can drain others magic.This is Sam an introduction to the world and her life which isn’t very pleasant.
A good start to a new series that set the scene off the world Sam and her few friends live in. Narration is all from Sam's points of view, and felt more like someone reading rather than lots of different voices. I still enjoyed listening and look forward to book 2
