Review: Magic Misled by Keri Arthur


I absolutely love this series. I don't know why I thought it was YA and avoided it for so long. I sucked down Magic Misled as soon as I got my grubby little hands on it. Spoiler alert, Lizzie is free from her horrible husband. Unfortunately for her, the unprotected source is still attracting evil. And... Aiden is still being a dumbass.

What I like about this series is Lizzie growing into her own. Her power is being stretched as each new baddy comes to town and wreck havoc. She does her best to figure it out with little training and whole lot of hard lessons. With her and Belle together, they seem to be an unstoppable duo. But they are not impervious to being drained. I'm exhausted as Lizzie keeps working on her magic and not getting enough sleep. It's a thankless job as the wolf council still doesn't appreciate Lizzie nor do they fully acknowledge the damage they have brought unto themselves.

In someways, I love this series because it reminds me of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. In that evil continuously comes regardless of Lizzie's abilities. Just like Buffy, Lizzie is trying to live a normal life. Lizzie likes running her little shop with her best friend Belle. Just like Buffy, she has her Scooby Gang and they may just be enough to fend off the evil invading their new found home.

I like the paranormal aspects. I like how Lizzie and Belle have to try and figure it out all whilst trying to stay under the radar and not be found out. With all this power throwing around, Lizzie's secret is bound to come out and bite her. I don't want to provide any spoilers. Suffice to say, there are is action, angst, and irritable werewolves interfering. This urban fantasy is recommended to readers who root for the underdog.
