    Mon avis en Fran aisMy English reviewI already had the opportunity to read another book written by Lee Roland, a novel that I enjoyed by the way, so when I discovered this new release I was immediately intrigued And I must say that the synopsis was interesting as well Ghosts, witches, dragons Oh yes, I had to read it Besides, it s not all because we also have succubi, semi conscious plants, demons, voodoo and many other things You re Intrigued, right Melian is a young witch who comes out hard in her life The family members are all trying to manipulate her to get what they want and finding herself without money, the thefts she often commit places her in custody If only she could live like all witches, but her inability to properly use her powers causes disasters in all circumstances But it is too much for her uncle Rat, the head of the family who is determined to put the girl on the right path How is that Oh by blackmailing her, forcing her to take care of a young man, Titus, to teach him the intricacies of their family, while the latter is obliged to keep and guard Melian in the greatest secrecy But our heroine is also a guardian, the one of an ancient magic building the Gramarye where many strange creatures live And although everything is perfect for Melian, sorcerers always want to appropriate the place and especially the magic that resides there to use it as they please, something that does not fit at all to the young woman and she doesn t hesitate t...

    3.5 I wanted to give this book a 4 Then I remembered her Earth Witches and just couldn t.There s a lot to like here The story has most of what I want in a read A quick moving plot Take charge characters A good balance of action and humor A nice balance between character development and exposition There s just too many things that didn t jell for me I really wish this book had gone through another edit, maybe two The set up felt stiff, and I had a hard time settling into the story The early transitions were challenging I ve seen her do much better I like the couple dynamics in this book Melian and Titus come together pretty quick, but there is plenty of activity story wise so it didn t feel rushed And the premise is interesting The MC is a low level witch who leads a complicated magical life She is the caretaker for The Gramarye a strong magical source that is all but falling down around her ears For lack of a better metaphor, the force is strong with the building the funding What funding Her obligations keep her from holding down a regular job, so she does a lot of stealing She s pretty good at it too when her magic works When her magic acts up, look out No seriously, Look Out Buildings can burn down, hell hounds run amok, expensive cars get destroyed Sometimes she gets arrested The charges are ...

    So, I love this author from her other series, the Earth Witches I LOVED this series, so when I saw that she was coming out with a new series, I literally jumped at the chance on the tour This author has a way of giving us kick ass heroines that may be flawed, but are wonderful because they won t give up no matter what Plus, they are usually so very interesting And I am so glad that I was not disappointed and this book met my expectations It s a great new series, and this just reinstates that this author is a must have Mel is awesome and she definitely has some obstacles to overcome Plus, everything that can go wrong does, and yet she keeps on going Melian is a witch, who has some trouble with her powers when she isn t as home A little flame burns a whole damn building down And then somethings she works on go just fine We haven t completely learned everything yet to Mel, but there s some fun going on It starts with her getting arrested The cop who busted her has something personal against her, and on top of that, to spy on her, to frame her, he moves into her apartment building that she owns as her neighbor Like it s not enough he wants her to rot in jail, he s going to harass her at home too Then, her crazy Uncle bails her out, but as a blackmail deal She ...

    I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review4.5 StarsSometimes I m just in the mood for a fun, lighthearted read Casual Curses Meticulous Magic fit the bill perfectly This is one of those books that will make you smile, laugh, and just make your day a touch lighter.Mel was wild, unpredictable, and completely devoted to the Gramarye and its tenants Money was hard to come by thanks to her uncle, forcing her to resort to some shady dealings to get by She made me laugh, and I found myself liking her immediately, despite the fact she was in jail Mel is as adorable and quirky as her tenants in the Gramarye.Romantic interest Titus, or Tiger as Mel likes to call him, was sweet and rather charming He was quick to jump to Mel s aid and defense once he learned magic was real and not Mel s delusion The romance between the two was also rather sweet I hope we get insight into his past in future books.The secret world of magic and witches was intrig...
