Publisher's Summary

Raine Benares is a seeker who finds lost things and people. Ever since the Saghred, a soul-stealing stone that's given her unlimited power, has bonded to her, the goblin king and the elves have wanted to possess its magic themselves. Which means a goblin thief and her ex-fiancé - an elven assassin - are after her. To survive, she'll need the help of her notorious criminal family.

This Series just keeps getting better!

If you could sum up Con & Conjure in three words, what would they be?

Funny, intriguing and satisfying!

I Just Cant Anymore

I feel like this series started out with the main characters being really strong. They had their weaknesses, but they could still stand on their own. I feel like in the last book our heroine has become nothing but a self defeating fop and uses this as an excuse to keep making really bad decisions. Maybe this story has just run on too long with all it's over arching nemesis continually getting away. I was hoping that this book would pull the series back out, but I cant even finish it. I will be returning this book as I know I have no desire to listen any further.

Good story, mediocre narration.

First off let me preface by saying I was looking for a sci-fi novel, and a new series. When this books shows up on sale, I figured, "What the heck."

The plot was pretty good, until the end, when I discovered the climax of this story occurs in the next book. Also, the "romance" is portrayed like a teenager talking to a grown up about sex. In other words, a lot of dancing around the subject with vagueness and euphemisms describing the lovemaking. I would have preferred glossing over the whole sensual scenes to the drivel given here.

As for the narrator, she did okay for most of the book, and wasn't monotone or boring. Unfortunately, every single male part sounds exactly the same, and goofy to boot.

To sum up: 1. Story is good. 2. Sensual scene are vague and childish. 3. Narration is amateurish.
