The Finder of the Lucky Devil (The Lucky Devil Series) AUDIO by Megan Mackie – Review by Jennifer Wolbeck

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I read this as an audiobook and found it enjoyable overall. This is my first adult urban fantasy/cyberpunk read, and I liked the combination between magic and technology. The strongest point of this novel is its world building. There’s so many details and lore, from the collapse of the fairy court to the house of the lucky devil himself. The magic system and concept of second sight was also exciting, and I appreciated that they had a definite class system describing the level of magic a person could use.

However, this book wasn’t without its faults. Megan Mackie and Frank Sjodin did a great job narrating, but I didn’t care for how they chose to divvy up the reading parts. I would have preferred if Megan Mackie read everything, and Frank Sjodin only read St. Benedicts lines and chapters. Sometimes they would go by thoughts or narration and it sounded off. I also didn’t care for some of Mackie’s writing choices. Some details, paragraphs and conversation could have been trimmed for the sake of pacing. For example, the beginning of the book could have introduced Rune and St. Benedict faster.

The characterizations were also very hit or miss. I didn’t care for St. Benedict for most of the book, but I loved Rune, Allie the girl dog and Taki the mermaid. The title of the book was also a cute play on words. When I first picked up The Finder of the Luck Devil, I thought it was about a girl looking for a hot guy, a “lucky devil”, but it was literally Rune using her magical talent as a finder and her title being the heir of the Magdalene and the owner of The Lucky Devil bar.

The Finder of the Lucky Devil (The Lucky Devil Series) AUDIO by Megan Mackie – Review by Meg Tyrrell

I’ve read this e-book, but loved it so much I had to hear the audio version. It was INCREDIBLE! The performance of the female and male characters were amazing and added to this story so much more. I loved everything about this and am such a fan of Megan Mackie. I’m so glad I listened to this audiobook because it gave me a different perspective than just reading it. Yes, I’ve “read” this book twice now, but SO WORTH IT. Totally recommend this audiobook!

This is the first book in The Lucky Devil Series. The Lucky Devil is actually a bar. There is some mystery surrounding The Lucky Devil. The newest owner, Rune is one of our main gals. She was left with the Lucky Devil when her Aunt, the previous owner, died and left it to her. There is a small hitch in this newfound role of owner for Rune. She is hiding something and it may be detrimental to her being able to do her best job. It has already caused her a lot of pain in the past. Will it continue to do so? Will she be able to come out on top in this or will things crumble before she gets a chance to get used to the idea of owning this neat little bar?

There were some really neat descriptions and word play used to bring to life some scenes of magic and intrigue. Ones that I thought about long after I finished listening to this book. I loved how realistic this seemed even though there were some strong hints of imagination used. Overall, I am excited about this new series. Thanks so much Megan Mackie. On to The Saint of Liars!

Alamir, Blood of Kaos is the first Book is this new series and it is a great start, Etain is a very powerful woman who came into her power in a bloody and messy way. She is constantly trying to decide who she is able to trust and who is out to get her. While Miller does an impressive job of weaving a tale full of descriptive action scenes and well-developed characters, the strongest point of this story is the supporting characters such as Spirit and Inferno. These characters give color and depth of the story that would otherwise be two dimensional.

Miller is an amazing author who impresses me with her ability to take characters from pages into reality. I am excited for book two.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Alamir (Blood of Kaos Series Book 1) by Nesa Miller, was an epic love story, epic action and adventure story and an epic save the world story. So much going on in this story. Mystery, intrigue, revenge, I am sure I’ve forgotten some. It’s a little difficult to pin this story down to a genre as it sounds like elements of several. Fantasy, science fiction, horror and more. The characters are fully fleshed, and the world is intricately constructed. The love story between Etain and Dar has all the tension of a tightly wound spring. A very creative, keep you on your toes story.

This mystical fantasy was a great start to an amazing read. From first listen, I was enthralled with not only each character but their past and how it affected each one of them in so many different ways to the point where their past defined their present, their future and the way they operated because of that. You were captivated so much from loss, love, lust, betrayal and the impacts of distress, grief, loss and the way their trauma impacted their life. I don’t want to give too much away other than that but this was worth every single page to get engulfed in!

Five Stars

 

Alamir: Blood of Kaos is the first book of the Blood of Kaos by Nesa Miller. This book is the first book I have read by Ms. Miller but definitely won’t be the last. This story was an amazing and original story of light and dark. Etain and Adar are fantastic characters the grow as the story moves along. I can’t wait to listen/read the second book in this series. 

This narrator is Ashley Nicole Stevens is a new to me narrator also. I enjoyed her tone and speed of the reading. She really brought the characters to life.  I highly recommend this book.
