Witches are being murdered in Austin, but how do you put the monster back in the vault?

The three witches of Pressler Street are the city's only hope, but they are running out of time.

A deadly creature has been locked away for millennia in plain sight. But big sister Laura accidentally set the creature free, and no one remembers how to put it back.

They need to find the witch-killer and stop its path of destruction on Austin. But what spell to use? Can the sisters figure it out?

Easy listen

This book is for the YA reader. It is an easy listen, and ever made into a visual medium, would be considered a “chick flick”. Three sisters have had a legacy passed down to them to keep a witch hunter in a supernatural prison. However, 2 days earlier the oldest system, who was good at bypassing wards, let the prisoner escape. That one point disturbed me. The prisoner had been hard to capture and required the cooperation of many witches, yet it only took only one to let out? Otherwise it’s easy listening.

sister with magic

Laura, Nickie and Emily Hadstrom are three sisters and are witches. At a family celebration they learn they are keepers of the family legacy. It is their job to protect the witches of the world from the evil witch killer, the Gorafrex. The Gorafrex was contained many centuries ago by their family. Three rings were created to imprison the creature. Laura has an oh shit moment because she realizes that she has released the Gorafrex. Now the sisters must learn how to use the magic to save the witches. If you think this sounds a little bit like Charmed the tv show you are correct. The sisters work well together and have a strong bond.

The story centers around the sisters running around with a half-baked plan on how to put the Gorafrex back in the rock. When the questions should be how to find and contain the Gorafrex, they are running around with no plan to contain the thing. Their discussion/concern was, let’s just get it out of the humans it possesses. Yea, but then what. After 6 hours and 56 minutes that was never discussed. The story is just ok. It ends with a cliff hanger.

****Spoilers****
Martha Carr, Michael Anderle uses their unique world they created in the, Magic Compass series, in this book. It is an incredibly unique world that should have been explained to provide more background and understanding to the story. Earth is an organic ship with a level of sentience. Everything on earth is cargo. The mechanics, who keep it running are gnomes. The crimson bubbles and lavender scent are indicative of evil. Usually with the lavender scent there is the lingering scent of something rotten. Bubbles are the form of magic that magical creatures use. All humans are magical. Our peabrains have not been awaken. A peabrain is that smaller brain buried at the top of your spine along the back of a person’s neck. It is undetected by science and holds the innate magic humans possess. I found it annoying that this information was not shared. Therefore I did not rate it 5 stars. I'm not motivated to buy the next one.

To find out more about the unique world read the Magic Compass.

I will read the next book only because I want to see how they subdue the Gorafrex.

Magic, magic and more magic!

This book is based in Martha Carr and Michael Anderle’s Terranavis Universe and is the second series released in that universe – the first is the Maggie Parker series. If you haven’t read/listened this series yet, I recommend you do so as it provides plenty of background information, plus it’s a great series! The other 2 series (so far) in the universe is The Adventures of Finnegan Dragonbender (a 6'5" dwarf and his faithful friend Penny, a Faery Dragon), and the Lone Valkyrie.

Now onto the review…..

The book centres on 3 sisters who have known about magic all of their lives – Laura, Nickie and Emily.

At Emily’s graduation, their father gives them each a ring which have been passed down from generation to generation. The rings make their magic stronger. Their father also tells them that they are the keepers of a prison for a very dangerous creature called a Gorafrex. This creature stowed away on the ship (earth) before it left their home galaxy. The girl’s ancestors trapped the Gorafrex in a prison, but………… Laura unknowingly released it earlier on that day……… They have to try and figure out how their rings work and capture and imprison the Gorafrex before it goes on a witch killing spree.

The characters are all very likeable, each sister is different in their own unique way but they work together to try and capture the Gorafrex, learning about their stronger powers thanks to their rings as they go.

This is a fun book, sisters who are there for each other and magic, lots of magic, oh and mysterious creatures!

I really like the narrator, she does a very good job narrating and kept me engaged throughout.

Interesting, but...

This is quite obviously a young person's book. The language, slang, and interactions I found (as a mature person) tedious, but can see how they would appeal to the under 30s. The plot, at least up to half-way through, looked interesting, but I wasn't enthused enough to follow through with it. The story is free of foul language (a strong,point in it favour), but the only sex scene I encountered came close to being graphic. I also found that the narrator's very strong US accent less than attractive for an International English speaker. I'll be returning it.
