Demon Magic and a Martini by Annette Marie {Cover Reveal}

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.

Book info:

Title: Demon Magic and a Martini (The Guild Codex: Spellbound, #4)
Author: Annette Marie
Publication date: April 12th, 2019
Published by: Dark Owl Fantasy Inc.
Genres: New Adult, Urban Fantasy


When I first landed a bartending job at the local guild, I didn’t know a thing about magic. These days, I’m practically an expert on the different magical classes, but there’s one nobody ever talks about: Demonica.

Turns out they have a good reason for that. My guild is strictly hellion-free, because who wants to risk life and limb to control the biggest bullies on the mythic playground?

Well, some people do, and now a demon has been loosed in the city. My three best friends are determined to slay it, but even badass combat mages are critically out-magicked. And that’s not all. The monster they’re tracking—it’s not hiding. It’s not fleeing. It’s not leaving a trail of corpses everywhere it goes.

The demon is hunting too. And in a city full of mythics, it’s searching for deadlier prey.

If we can’t unravel the demon’s sinister motivations, more innocent people will die, but finding the answers means digging into dark secrets … and learning truths I never wanted to know.

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

Author bio:

  • Save

Annette Marie is the author of Amazon best-selling YA urban fantasy series Steel & Stone, its prequel trilogy Spell Weaver, and romantic fantasy trilogy Red Winter. Her first love is fantasy, but fast-paced adventures and tantalizing forbidden romances are her guilty pleasures. She lives in the frozen winter wasteland of Alberta, Canada (okay, it’s not quite that bad) with her husband and their furry minion of darkness—sorry, cat—Caesar. When not writing, she can be found elbow-deep in one art project or another while blissfully ignoring all adult responsibilities.

  1. Oh I love how the surface slants!! It adds such great dimension to the cover.

  2. Ooo, nifty covers! Hard choice…. I *love* the little dragon on the cover for Two Witches and a Whiskey, but this feels slightly more… balanced. Descriptive. And I love the staff magic.

    I’ve not read the Guild Codex series, or anything by Marie, but this does sound lovely. Reminds me of one of my favorite urban fantasy series — the Dresden Files by Jim Butcher. I totally, totally recommend that series if you’re into this type of thing! It’s a long one, with 15 books and counting, but it’s got wonderfully-sarcastic humor and great characters, with an entertaining take on magic in a modern setting.

    And who can’t get enough of that magic? ?

    You have a beautiful blog here, Lindsey!

  3. I love love love that cover. It’s begging me to learn more. I’m actually not familiar with the author and as a YA speculative fiction fan, I should probably check her out!
