Summary

Three butchered witches. An unknown killer. One big mistake: they left the familiar alive. 

Stella Familiar was created by the London Coven to protect the city from the monsters that lurk in the shadows. 

She’s fought against the darkness for decades, but now something new has come to town. Something that’s torn her world apart. 

This monster did the impossible: it murdered the three most powerful witches in London, putting the city in peril, and leaving Stella alone for the first time to fight back against a power she doesn’t understand. 

An evil beyond anything she can imagine is loose; something with the power to crush her like a bug...and it’s back to finish what it started. 

Does Stella have what it takes to defeat a threat this powerful, or will the creature of her nightmares snuff out the Coven for good? 

Mystery, scares, and fast-paced action collide in this thrilling urban fantasy series. Listen to Familiar Magic now for an addictive tale of magic and mayhem you cannot pause.

Enjoyable Start

This was a really good start to a new urban fantasy series! The London Coven consists of three of the most powerful witches in London and are tasked with keeping the Denizens, the magical world, and the human world separate and keeping each one safe. Stella is the coven’s familiar, completely made by the witches, and she comes home to find all of them brutally murdered. She’s left to protect London by herself in the process of getting revenge. This was my first book set in the Uncanny Kingdom and the world was well written. I enjoyed that she teamed up with a human, David Tyler, and turned his life upside down in the process. I loved that Matthew could put his own twist on a witch’s familiar and that helped make the story more unique. This book was fast paced from the start and full of action, mystery,great descriptions, some gruesome scenes, and humor.
Heather did a great job with this narration! She spoke at a steady pace, gave each character their own voice and kept me hooked from start to finish with her performance.

I didn't like this book

I love a lot of different genres but this one was a little too violent and dark for my tastes. The narrator did a really great job and I would listen to her again. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I found this audiobook to be extremely good. It has a great combination of murder, mystery, suspense and drama. The narrator does an exceptional job voicing each character.

Entertaining

Familiar Magic is an interesting magical fantasy book with a unique twist on witches familiars. The story was entertaining right from the start and fast paced. If you are squimish with violence, this book may not be for you. The only thing that had me pausing was the breaking the fairy in half and drinking their substance to gain power. It was a first for me. The narrator did an excellent job! I received a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Great book of the uncanny kingdom

I was very enthralled by this story though near the end the author dragged the ending on a bit to long. Long enough that I almost skipped to the end, but I didn't. I would love to listen to the next book which this Audible book said was available on Audible, but I can not find it on Audible.
