Mage Assassins and Other Misfits by Annette Marie and Rob Jacobsen


The weirdness level of my life has reached an all-time high. Which is saying something, considering I started out as a psychic conman and somehow ended up as a MagiPol agent. And not just any agent. Lately, I’ve been Captain Blythe’s right-hand man and most trusted confidant.

Yeah, I know. Super weird.

It’s also kind of awkward, because unbeknownst to her, I’ve also teamed up with her most loathed nemesis, Darius King, guild master of the Crow and Hammer and the number one guy on the Consilium’s “To Be Eliminated” list.

Oh, and the Consilium? It’s just a secret organization embedded deep in the upper echelons of the MPD that’s using its nefarious influence to take over the world. Or destroy it. We’re still figuring that part out.

“We” being me and Blythe. And me and Darius. But not Blythe and Darius. Like I said, it’s awkward.

Unfortunately, the Consilium knows we’re on to them. It’s only a matter of time before they reveal how much power they truly wield—and eliminate all three of us for good.

It feels like forever since we've had a Guild Codex adventure so it was amazing to sink back into Kit's series and go on a magic filled romp full of humour and chaos!

This book was a rollercoaster and its safe to say that the stakes have never been higher! I'm actually a little afraid for our beloved characters...

Kit is as loveable as always and he is growing into quite the badass! His magical ability is something else... It's been nice to see his growth both magically and personally from the beginning of the series through to now.

Darius features prominently in this book and we learn more about the Mage Assassin's past.

The slow slow burning romance between Kit and Lienna finally seems to be moving...

All in all it was a wholly satisfying, fast-paced and informative, adventure in one of my favourite fictional worlds. If you're a fan of the series, I doubt you'll be disappointed!
