Once upon a time, in an alleyway in the slums of the City of Lockes, a young and somewhat lonely boy named Sam Haversford turns a group of teenage douchebags into stone completely by accident. Of course, this catches the attention of a higher power, and Sam's pulled from the only world he knows to become an apprentice to the king's wizard, Morgan of Shadows.

This book is what happens when you write a childrens book for adults with lots of swearing and sex jokes. Its amazing. the only thing I dislike is some or the voices of the less characters but you get used to them. As always TJ Klune's characters are heart warming and loveable.

The story is a little bit predictable but that didnt make it less enjoyable. The performance however conveyed the characters really well and made them seem real. I think this book is one of my new favourites. One thing I enjoyed about the story was that the sex scenes werent extremely graphic and their relationship was built on communication and feelings for each other instead of the over passionate detailed sex scenes you find in other gay romances novels that take the life out the characters a bit. if i had to describe the book in one word it would be endearing

My name is Alexis, though everyone calls me Lexie. I'm a necromancer. We're rare enough that I've never met another in my life, until Claire came home to tell me she found one. In New Orleans. Now, I am headed south with my best friends, staying in close quarters with five guys, four guys whom I have kissed, one who has been ignoring me for the last few weeks, one who keeps sneaking kisses, one who doesn't even remember it, and another...well, I don't know what he wants. Thank God for Miles. He's my one safe place in this disaster I've created.

This book is delightfully gay without it being the main focus of the book. I really enjoyed the performance and I fall in love with the character of Noam. It also says something that I was already looking for when the next book would be out before the book was even finished. I will be recommending this book to anyone in the near future.

Broke, almost homeless, and recently fired. Those are my official reasons for answering a wanted ad for a skeevy-looking bartender gig. It went downhill the moment they asked me to do a trial shift instead of an interview - to see if I'd mesh with their "special" clientele. I think that part went great. Their customers were complete dickheads, and I was an asshole right back. That's the definition of fitting in, right? I expected to get thrown out on my ass. Instead, they...offered me the job? It turns out this place isn't a bar. It's a guild.
