Publisher's Summary

Witches and wizards and spells. Oh, my!

Enter the world of Raen, turn left at the land of dragons, and you’ll find yourself in the country of Aeristria. A place overflowing with magic and creatures that were once only heard of in fairy tales. In the heart of Aeristria is the capital city Tolvade. Here you will find shops and taverns, laughter and fun, runesmiths looking for their next job, and sneaky pickpocketing imps. Steer clear of the galloping gang of centaurs, and you will see the headquarters of the prestigious Coven.

Within the Coven’s lower ranks, you’ll find Vanessa, a third year hunter itching to become a spellweaver. She and her trusted demon partner Botobolbilian must investigate an explosion at the academy and bring the culprit responsible in. Easy job, right?

Wrong.

Vanessa and her partner find that this investigation runs deep in black magic and sprinkled with feral demon summonings. With countless lives on the line, Vanessa struggles with self-doubt and following her heart (and laws) as she tries to right the wrongs of these heinous criminals and bring them to justice before they do anymore harm. 

But, with an oncoming yearly blizzard just days away, is it too late? Even with all the magic, spells, and power on Raen, this job might be the last that this duo ever faces.

Cotton candy

Take this review as a friend sugar coating or an honest review, i dont care. As an aspiring writer I keep in touch and know the author, and geeked when I got a chance to listen to her audiobook. And I often read her other forms of work and toss ideas back and forth when I can.

The story was not my normal read/listen, I'm much more of a sci-fi nerd myself. Her discriptions gave the world and people more life and painted the mental movie much more than other authors I've seen in fantasy genre books. She gave the characters feeling as well from mains to the minions of world casting. I laughed, worried, spit out my drink once, and cursed a few times. All of them honest and good reactions to be able to pull from a reader/listener. Im now going to be one of the hopefuls waiting on her next writing, like the good nerd I am.

If I ever get a novel written and published I want the guy who did the audio to read and do mine. He wasn't afraid to go and do accents, male and female tones, and just overall try and breath life into what he was reading. Don't believe me, listen to it and hear for yourself. Hoping he does more books for her.

5/5 for writer for making me enjoy fantasy again.

5/5 for narrator for doing a hell of a job and making me spit out my drink.

I'll also never look at cotton candy the same again.

A world worth visiting.

A very unique take on a fantasy world that is relatable in a sense. Quirky humor, loveable characters, and just enough action as to not to be bored.

I loved it!💜

This storyline was terrific and the characters were so much fun!! While reading/listening and was thinking how I hoped this was going to be a series and I’m so excited knowing there is more to come. My favorite saying? “double dip a candlestick”
A great YA book.
The narration was absolutely amazing. So many characters and Alex Goodman nailed each and everyone. Fantastic!
I highly recommend this book!

Absolutely Love!

between character development, story and world building. and writing style, I have nothing but good to say! Bobo, by far my favorite character, is a delight! magic spells and demons, mythical creatures and a dash of action, it's the perfect ingredients and I cant wait to continue this series and see where it goes!!

Creative and hilarious

I found Spellbound & Hellhounds to be a well written book that had bits of humor. I laughed at the banter between the characters. Vanessa is such an impetuous witch who just can't seem to stay out of trouble despite the warnings of her pet (friend) Bobo the ogre.
This story offers several supernatural creatures such as pixies, imps, hellhounds, centaurs and a live sick succubus. The book also contains a lesson that everyone should learn. I highly recommend this book if you like creative fantasy with a touch of hilarious witchcraft. I received this book at my request and I am voluntarily leaving my honest review here of my own volition.

Very Enjoyable.

Very Enjoyable. I volunteered to review this book for United Indie Book Blog. I had the audio version of it. Spellbound & Hellbound by Nia Rose. This book is first book I listened to from this author. I loved the writing character development. Vanessa is a witty, yet fiercely independent heroine, she knows what she wants to do and don't change her mind. Leon who is a Spellweaver with pets Lyx. Vanessa and her pet Bobo got into a little to much dangerous, but for the most part they found a lot out of it. I LOVED their Pets Bobo (full name Botobolbilian) and Lyx. The mystical elements in this book through me into listening and wanting more. Vanessa and Leon are much like, and I can't wait to see them continue to grow. Great job. Can't wait to read or listened to more.

Simply brilliant.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, it had me hooked from the start, the story is perfectly paced leading you deeper in mysterious magical world.
The characters are very likeable, Bobo made me laugh and he's one of my favourite characters.
The detailing and depth is superb, making it so easy to get lost in the book.
The narration is flawless, really bringing the characters to life, giving each of them thier own personality and uniqueness.
This has quickly become one of my favourite books.
Easy 5⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
