Annette Marie – Slaying Monsters for the Feeble


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.

This series, combined with Guild Codex: Spellbound series and read intertwined correctly creates a universe I want more of. The books are ahead of the audiobooks, but Cris Dukehart has become my Tori and Robin so I am already dying for the next book in the series, and this one JUST came out this week.

I highly recommend this to anyone who likes magic, urban fantasy and perhaps mysteries. The world created by Annette Marie is one that is very close to our own and written simple enough to make it feel like ‘of course it really does exist’.

In this one we explore more about demons and Demonica, and learn more about some of the other guild members from the Crow and Hammer. Robin is still having trouble fitting in, perhaps more than Tori had even, but if they could all just work together, the things these guild members could accomplish may become legendary.
