When Madison traded up for a gorgeous Victorian house in the New Orleans French Quarter, she thought she was getting away from her toxic life. Sure, the house was old and run down, but it was hers, and it was exactly the fresh start she wanted.

But then she meets Remy, a mysterious, sexy witch with power, class, and charm to spare, and everything changes.

Unknown to Madison, her arrival in New Orleans sets in motion a chain of events that throws everyone's life into disarray - not just hers. Now, pushed into the middle of an ancient war between vampires and witches, she must unravel the secrets of the house she's inhabiting before the forces awakened by her very presence rise from their centuries-old slumber, hungry and eager to feed on everything they can find.

Starting with her.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Better story, better narrator.

What was most disappointing about Katerina Martinez’s story?

To be fair, I didn't make it all the way to the end, but I made it to Chapter 34, so I feel I gave it a real chance. Though it certainly wasn't helped by the narrator, whose voice had a little-girl quality, the writing itself struck me as a bit sophomoric. The characters were flat and uninteresting. By Chapter 34, I still really didn't care about any of them--even the main character--and the lead male didn't earn my interest, or my affections. Also, that first sex scene was eye-roll-worthy; not only was it decidedly un-titillating, but it seemed incredibly formulaic, with little to distinguish it from any other generic sex scene.

What didn’t you like about Carly Robins’s performance?

Carly Robin's voice is just not to my liking. It interfered with my listening of the story; that is, I never stopped paying attention to her voice and just got lost in the story. Truthfully, that not only speaks to her voice, but it also reflects the weakness of the writing, because it's possible that a truly powerful story could have made me forget about the narrator's annoying voice.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Magick Reborn?

It has potential

The characters and story are interesting but the story lacks substance. I'll get the next book to see if it improves.
