Publisher's Summary

Clio has the rare ability to mimic magic. Sent on a mission to steal spells from the most dangerous family in the Underworld, she ends up stealing something else: their spell weaver.

As a nymph living in exile among humans, Clio has picked up all sorts of unique survival skills. But pilfering magic from the Underworld's deadliest spell weavers? Not so much.

Unfortunately, that's exactly what she has to do to earn a ticket back home.

Conning her way into the Underworld may have gone pretty well, but now she's got a new problem. His name is Lyre, and he's a sinfully alluring incubus, a skilled spell weaver, and the only thing standing between her and stealing some damn magic.

Maneuvering around him without blowing her cover shouldn't be that difficult, but chaos has been dogging her every step. Monsters hide behind beautiful face, and Lyre keeps saving her neck even though they're enemies. Kind of enemies? Either way, her mission is getting complicated fast, and in the Underworld, even one mistake could prove fatal.

FIVE STARS FOR ANOTHER CAPTIVATING BOOK!!!

As an avid reader I've read hundreds of good books. All of Annette Marie's books are levels above just good books. I recommend them to everyone who wants to lose themselves in a different world. Her descriptions are vivid, the magic is enthralling, the characters have heart and are easy to connect with, and there's never a shortage of evil that needs to be stopped. This book is more than worth your credit and time!

Nice spin off Series

I gobbled up Annette Marie's Steel and Stone series, which starts off with the book Chase the Dark. I recommend this series if you haven't already read it! I read the Steel and Stone series first before reading The Spell Weaver's series and enjoyed the spin off, loving the Lyre character and wanting to know more about him. I read each and every book of the Steel and Stone series, but have to admit I skipped the 2nd book in this series, The Shadow Weave. After reading this book, The Night Realm, I went directly on to "The Blood Curse" and did not feel I missed anything. My reasoning for doing this is because I did not want to go through the same exact type of angst as in the Blood and Stone series (Piper and Ash) over whether Clio really loved Lyre or not. Come on, you know she knows she does. Didn't feel like going through a whole book while she decided what we all already know. lol Wish Annette would give us more books with these characters, she did a great job of making us care about them and want to know what happens next to them.

Airhead heroine

Nothing waorse than an airhead heroine, too stupid to live as a character. I personally dislike having to read about a lead female character that could double as a female "Frank Spencer"! At every turn, you just want to shout out 'you stupid bint!'.... Been a while since I last disliked a character so much!

GOOD.

Starting was a bit slow but it picked up in momentum. The storyline and plot are good. Lyre's story is very interesting. Clio sounds very young in character but she shows more maturity in the later part of the story. Very good. The only spoiler I feel is I would have preferred the narrator be one instead of two. Both are good but the voices of the individual characters, like for males and females differ when read by the narrators . Other than that the series is good.

It's good

But the whiney and helpless attitude of the main character gets really irritating really quick.

Still Wonderful

I have already read the entire series but couldn't help wanting to listen to it too. The narrators did a wonderful job and coupled with the brilliant writing of Annette Marie, you will not be disappointed.

What a storyteller!

I am an unabashed fantasy lover. I am a sucker for a good story. Ms. Marie hasn’t failed me yet. I like having the two narrators .

If I were a 13 year old girl...

Expected some interesting characters and world building; I instead got a goofy teen romance novel.
