Virtutis gloria merces

Translation: Glory is the reward of valor

Fed up with playing the normal game, recent university graduate, ex-cum laude, ex-soccer star, ex-popular, and mostly broke Kera MacDonagh changes her life when she decides to research how to be a witch...and believes it. 

Kera didn’t want to go back east and deal with her overbearing mom. So, when university was done, she stayed behind in Los Angeles.

Little did she realize how controlling moms can be from the other side of the country.

Feeling a little desperate to make her own way, she buys a few books on business.

And one on a lark, How to be a Badass Witch.

That’s when the trouble started.

Go up and click "Buy Now" and find out just what trouble a young woman can get into when the magic just might be real.

BORING AND SLOWWWW

I’ve read a lot of Michael Anderle’s books and they’re usually great but this one is so HORRIBLE!! Extremely slow and just plain boring. The writing is all over the place and way too many filler pages. For example, it seemed like the author told us about her motorcycle and the other past types of motorcycles for 15 minutes. Who cares, really? This woman keeps passing out from never eating but eating would make her a better witch. She has no idea what she is doing but hey, let’s try this one spell with a warning on it that it could kill you. Then you have 3 drug dealers trying to start a gang war, another 2 office guys and then you have witches who seem pretty incompetent. I would so pass on this audiobook unless you like being frustrated by EVERYONE in a book.

No! just No!

This book is filled with unnecessary and irrelevant chapters and information... it is boring and not worth your credit. DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK!

Very Enjoyable!

I didn't expect to like this, but it was so good. the narrator is a,genius, holding 10 different characters uniquely in reality. I'm amazed when someone can do a decent male and female voice but she takes it so much further.
the story is good and the character development is great.

Bad Ass Series

Well. This book popped up on my feed a while back as I had purchased books by Michael Anderle. I was fully aware that he uses his name to promote new authors. Sometimes this is good .. sometimes very good .. and sometimes .. very .. very good. THIS IS GOOD. Enjoyed the heck out of it. .

Let me put it this way. It is 8 pm and I have just finished the book. I stopped to write this review ..in-route to purchase the next book in the series. To me .. that is the best thumbs up I can give to a writer.

Love the book

I wonder why you did not use the zx10 instead of the z900 I think the zx10
Looks a lot better the z900 street fighter.. or even the H2 would of been a really cool bike.. and why would you say the guy laid the bike on its side. If you laid it on it’s side coolant will leak out.. and so would the gas..

cute yet ferocious

What if magic were real? What if you were a pretty smart biker chick bartender in LA? What if you could learn magic from a book you ordered on Amazon?

Nice book, incomplete ending.

The story is good although not quite what was expected.
It was kind of disappointing to have the book stop so abruptly. At the very least it would have been nice for it to have stopped once they contacted her, the story was left incomplete.

Don’t waste the credit

The story is slow and main character is less than exciting. I was hoping for more Mr Brownstone. Not Michael Anderle’s best could have been so much better
