WHAT IT’S ABOUT:

I’m bound to a demon.

For my entire life, I avoided magic at all costs. Now, I’m responsible for a demon who wields magic more powerful than the toughest mage or sorcerer.

Demons are evil.

That’s what my textbooks say. That’s what I see. He’s ruthless, he’s temperamental, he’s cold. But he protects me without fail. I wonder if he’s hiding a heart behind his hostility.

My demon is a monster.

Whether he’s heartless or not, my contract with him is illegal and beyond dangerous. Together, we must find a way to return him to his own world before anyone discovers our secret. If that wasn’t bad enough, I’ve come to realize something else:

My demon isn’t the only monster I should be worried about.


From the author of The Guild Codex: Spellbound comes a new series that will plunge an unprepared young woman into the darkest magic of the mythic world.

WHAT IT’S ABOUT:

As a guild bartender, I can handle pretty much anything—mages, sorcerers, witches, the occasional demon. But show me anything family-related and I’d rather run for the hills. It doesn’t even have to be my family.

So I have no idea why I thought spending the holidays with Aaron’s mom and pop was a good idea.

Meeting his famous parents is already terrifying enough, but I’ve got a bigger problem. Students of his family’s renowned mage academy are being attacked on the grounds—and somehow no one has seen a single assailant? Unexplained tracks litter the nearby woods, rumors of forbidden alchemy are circulating the campus…and Ezra has been acting strangely since we arrived.

Something deadly is brewing in the shadow of Sinclair Academy, and the longer we take to uncover it, the more dangerous it becomes. But no matter the risk, we’ll protect the students.

And Aaron’s parents too, I suppose. If we have to.

WHAT IT’S ABOUT:

Rule one: Don’t look at the demon.

When I arrived at my uncle’s house, I expected my relatives to be like me—outcast sorcerers who don’t practice magic. I was right about the sorcery, but wrong about everything else.

Rule two: Don’t listen to the demon.

My uncle chose a far deadlier power. He calls creatures of darkness into our world, binds them into service contracts, and sells them to the highest bidder. And I’m supposed to act like I don’t know how illegal and dangerous it is.

Rule three: Don’t talk to the demon.

All I had to do was keep my nose out of it. Pretend I didn’t find the summoning circle in the basement. Pretend I didn’t notice the shadowy being trapped inside it. Pretend I didn’t break the rules.

But I did, and now it’s too late.

Hi everybody, and welcome to the official cover reveal of Slaying Monsters for the Feeble, the second book in the Guild Codex: Demonized series by Annette Marie!

This cover reveal is hosted by Xpresso Book Tours.

Okay, by now I’m sure it’s no surprise at all to any of you that I’m a big fan of Annette Marie’s books. Her newest series is set in the same world as her Guild Codex: Spellbound series, which I already adore. And though I was admittedly a little bit hesitant about this spin-off series, I was blessed enough to be able to read an advance copy of book one, which comes out on September 13th, and let me tell you: THIS SERIES IS AMAZING AND ANNETTE MARIE OUTDID HERSELF YET AGAIN.

So OF COURSE I was itching to see the brand new cover for book two, and honestly… I think it’s my favorite Annette Marie cover ever. (I know I say that with every new cover, but really, she has been blessed by the cover gods). Take a look for yourself!

My rating in words: Loved it!

WHAT IT’S ABOUT:

Three months ago, I landed a job as a bartender. But not at a bar—at a guild. Yeah, the magic kind.

I’m not a badass mage like my three smokin’ hot best friends. I’m not a sorcerer or an alchemist, or even a wussy witch. I’m just a human, slinging drinks like a pro and keeping my non-magical nose out of mythic business. Seriously, I know my limits.

So why am I currently standing in a black-magic ritual circle across from a fae lord?

Somewhere behind me, my three mage friends are battling for their lives. Somewhere near my feet is the rogue witch I just knocked out with a stolen spell. And I have about five seconds to convince this very angry sea god not to shmoosh me like a bug.

I’m pretty sure this wasn’t part of the job description.


Note: The three mages are definitely sexy, but this series isn’t a reverse harem. It’s 100% fun, sassy, fast-paced urban fantasy.

Hi everybody, and welcome to the official cover reveal of Demon Magic and a Martini, the fourth book in the Guild Codex: Spellbound series by Annette Marie!

This cover reveal is hosted by Xpresso Book Tours.

Well, here we are AGAIN with another Annette Marie post! (#sorrynotsorry) I’m sure I already told you that I love Annette Marie’s books and have subsequently raved about the writing, the worldbuilding, the pacing, the character development or romance aspects of her books, but something I tend to rave less about are the covers and that’s a shame because they are GORGEOUS!!  This new cover is no exception, and I’m having trouble deciding which one I love more, the Two Witches and a Whiskey one or this new one. Which Annette Marie cover is your favorite?

Check out the full cover for Demon Magic and a Martini below and while you’re at it, be sure to check out her books, including this lovely Guild Codex: Spellbound series.
