Summary

Nix
“You are the savior of mankind” are the last words I ever expected to hear while nibbling on fries. The thing is, I’m not mankind saving material. I don’t even have magic (and just found out it exists). I’m the most boring, normal(ish) human ever. 

Suddenly, I’m being tossed right into the middle of a fight that started years before I was even born, and then I get partnered up with Alastair, a quirky magical Guardian. He is rather attractive and sweet when he’s not into the whole “woe is me, I can’t let myself fall in love with you” nonsense. I mean, the moment he took my annoyingly judgmental grandma hostage, it was all over for me. I was hooked. 

Now the only problem is...what exactly are we saving the world from? 

Alastair
The moment I laid eyes on Nix, the naive yet easygoing human captivated my attention, and now I’m determined to protect him. But despite my amazing and majestic abilities, we might not make it out of this mess. Still, there must be a reason Nix was chosen. No, he doesn’t have pizazz and maybe he really doesn’t have magic, but he’s also one of the strongest and kindest men I’ve ever met. 

Now if I can just get him to stop throwing blankets at enemies, we might have a shot at this. 

Nixing the End of the World contains a flaming "horse" with antlers who inexplicably appears when needed (or not), an interfering BFF who didn’t really mean to light the trunk on fire, a six-toed cat that looks like he put a claw in a socket, and an incubus who just wants a smoothie without anyone losing their clothes.

Michael’s best narration to date

This was just incredible. The book was awesome first time reading it but adding Michael’s talented narration just made it all the more brilliant!

Good book

Love a book that makes me chuckle in the first few pages and full of sarcastic humorous remarks... Good story line, looking forward to the next.

Yay! Alice Winters 😁🥰

Absolutely brilliant listen!

Alice Winters is AMAZING as usual!

Loved the storyline, the MC’s, sub-characters, humour and the world building is great 😊

Michael Ferraiuolo excellently narrates as usual and his characterisations are just spot on 😂

Definitely a must listen/read, especially if you’re an Alice Winters fan 🥰

Gets 5⭐️‘s for sure!

Started off great

I had started reading this on Kindle unlimited and got bored halfway through. Months later, I bought the audiobook thinking maybe that would help. This book started off hilariously funny with an interesting plot. About midway through the plot started rambling. There was a lot of inner monologue from the 2 MC that dragged down the pace of the story. I’m assuming there will be a sequel as this ended with a happy ending with a teaser. We also never did find out what some of the characters true natures are. Hopefully the next book will have the same great humor but flow better. The Narrator was fantastic.

It was pleasant

It wasn't a laugh-out-loud book, probably because the main characters seemed a little whiny. You spend a lot of time going to different locations and there wasn't much worldbuilding. You had enough backstory to get by but there are still many questions. The MC seemed to become a couple by default and for me, lacked chemistry. Nix was Alastair's shiny new toy that just went with the flow. Michael Feraiuolo was supurb.

Strong start, weak finish

This book started strong. Witty, interesting plot, likeable characters. Then they all got lost and forgot who they were and what they were doing a few chapters in and never really figured it out for the rest of the story. Narration was phenomenal, and there were some legit laugh out loud moments in the beginning, but I don't think I'll listen to the next book in the story after the disintegration of this one

Fantastic

This was such a fun book! I really enjoyed the growing relationship between Nix and Alastair. There was plenty of humor and adventure in this book. There’s a lot left that I want to know about this world Alice has created. I’m looking forward to the next book!!
Michael Ferraiuolo did a spectacular job narrating this story! I loved his voices for Nix and Alastair!!

Magical Savior Shenanigans

A magical, modern day fantasy, Nixing the End of the World was a fun and hilarious romance that takes on the magical savior trope and delivers a zany and fresh story that had me laughing out loud. The banter between the characters is fantastic and full of sass and sarcasm. I really enjoyed this book and binged the entire audiobook in one day.
