Between Agent Söze, the treacherous Internal Affairs tyrant who’s taken over my precinct, and the super illegal sorcery my partner Lienna was hiding in said precinct—which is now missing—my usual routine of busting magical criminals has fallen apart in favor of hectic damage control.

But that went out the window too when a respected Guild Master was found dead. Agent Söze is trying to cover it up, which is all the reason I need to make solving the murder my top priority.

Except now Agent Söze is trying to arrest and/or kill me. Not entirely unexpected, but both dangerous and highly irritating.

With the clock ticking on the next mysterious Guild Master murder, Lienna and I have to find a way to prove Agent Söze is behind it all. We need rock-solid evidence to bring him down, which is kind of tricky when crooked agents, shady allies, and cutthroat assassins keep complicating matters.

In the Guild Codex Warped.  The overall story arc is connected and like most urban fantasy, I would read them in order.  It is also connect with the overall Guild Codex Universe.  With Stolen Sorcery & Other Misadventures, we are now past the end of SpellboundDemonized and Unveiled series.  I found this reading order on the author’s website.

The action takes off from the start and really never lets up.  Kit and Lienna are targeted Agent Soze, as are Captain Blythe and Darius King.  Blythe, again,  takes them outside the department because she believes the MPD has a leak and has been compromised.  Plus Soze has kicked them out of the MPD.

Kit and Lienna are trying to figure out how the assassins are killing heads of guilds. They are certain Soze is involved.  They do figure it out and start trying to collect evidence while also fending off assassination attempts.  They even end up working with the mole since they can’t access the MPD files anymore themselves!

We also see a change in their relationship as they team up and fight together. Not only do they work together better, but they also confess more feelings.  Kit shares about his past in a foster home. Lienna shares about the current situation with her father.

I was happy to see Darius King and almost think I would like him to get a Spellbound series!  He is in the background here mostly.  Robin and Zylas help with information and with one of the fights with assassins.  Zylas is pretty hilarious.  We also get Aaron and Kai in on a battle.  It looks like the universe has another bad group and this series will have more than 4 books with Mage Assassins & Other Misfits coming up next.  I can’t wait.


I’ve enjoyed having a different narrator for this series, which seems right for Kit.  Both male and female characters have distinct voices which are comfortable.  I was able to listen at my normal 1.5x speed.

About Annette Marie

Annette Marie is the author of YA urban fantasy series Steel & Stone, its prequel trilogy Spell Weaver, and romantic fantasy trilogy Red Winter. Her first love is fantasy, but fast-paced urban fantasy, bold heroines, and tantalizing forbidden romances are her guilty pleasures. She proudly admits she has a thing for dragons, and her editor has politely inquired as to whether she intends to include them in every single book.

Annette lives in the frozen winter wasteland of Alberta, Canada (okay, it’s not quite that bad). She shares her life with her remarkably patient, comparatively sensible husband and their furry minion of darkness—sorry, cat—Caesar. When not writing, she can be found elbow-deep in one art project or another while blissfully ignoring all adult responsibilities.

About Rob Jacobsen

Rob is a Canadian writer, actor, and director, who has been in a few TV shows you might watch, had a few films in festivals you might have attended, and authored some stories you might have come across. He’s hoping to accomplish plenty more by the time he inevitably dies surrounded by cats while watching reruns of Mr. Robot. Currently, he is the Creative Director of Cave Puppet Films, as well as the co-author of the upcoming Guild Codex: Warped book series with Annette Marie.
