Publisher's Summary

Saving the world is such a bother when it makes you late for tea.  

Wizard Lily Singer is kept busy managing library archives, studying magic, and trying to keep her witch friend Sebastian from dragging her into trouble. Unfortunately, he loves adventure even more than she loves being left alone.  

She doesn't want to investigate a malignant spell in a haunted house, but Sebastian is promising rare books as the reward. She also doesn't want to hurt her family but is tired of being lied to about her past. And she definitely doesn't want to get stuck in a dangerously unstable time loop, but Sebastian is in trouble - again....

Strangling her friend, as satisfying as it would be, won't fix her problems. If she wants answers and to not miss tea, she had best find the right spell for the job - before everything goes to hell and takes them all with it.

Great Audio of Great Book

This was my second time “reading” this book. I loved Amy McFadden’s narration. It really brought Lydia’s book to life and also helped give more insight into the characters and story. Loved this!

Surprisingly good!

I had just come off a very emotional ride in the last book I read, so l was looking for a fluff piece so my emotions could settle down. It has delivered in that aspect, but it is more to. Very funny interesting stories. I highly recommend it.

Snarky and fun!

I simply love it! And 10 min after the first book finished, I had downloaded book number 2. And now 10 min after that one I have just started book number 3. I’m simply unable to stop!

They are funny, detailed, have an entertaining plot, and the narrator does an amazing job!

Wizards & Witches--it's not the gender, but skillz

This book is described as Harry Potter for adults. Well, I thoroughly enjoyed it. The main character, yeah, she's a wizard, not a witch. It reminds me of the book Equal Rites, with the first female wizard by Terry Pratchett. The adventure is more Harry Potter style, and while fun, I wish it had just a little more humor. Her sidekick, is a man who's a witch. The concept is wizards are both with magic, and witches use spell books to do magic, but it's not innate. This book was like a micro series, with a few different story lines going on and not one full arc. It was a lot of fun, the narrator was fantastic, and I will be checking out the next book.

Loved the story. Glad these are on audiobook now!

Loved the book. Very enjoyable. Did question some of the narrator's choices at times though.
