Death and the Crone
The Lucky Devil Series
Book 3
By Megan Mackie
☆☆☆☆☆

Margaret is a 60 year old homeless lady. One lucky night a handsome young man invites her to his home. She has no reason to live and figures she gone anyway. She has no fight left, and feels this guy is going to kill her. But don’t think she gives in easily, she fights him all the way. But you won’t find spoilers here. So read Margaret’s story, and see where she goes.

Megan Mackie is a new to me author. I love looking for new authors. She did not disappoint. I enjoyed reading her story, and loved her characters. Elias is not who I had expected. In fact her story really surprised me. Great story Margaret Mackie. Now I will head out to read the other books in this series.

Death and the Crone: Book Three of the Lucky Devil Series
by Megan Mackie was a good 4 star read. This book pulled me right in.

Margaret is a homeless woman in Chicago who meets Elias, a very good looking young man. He invites her to come home with him, of course Margaret had her suspicions, but she went.
She isn’t a happy woman and has her doubts about how her life will be.

The more time she spends with Elias she starts to see and feel things. His home is also very mysterious and magical.

Will Elias be able to help Margaret?

Overall I really enjoyed this read, there are twists and turns that add great elements to the story. The secondary characters were great. I really liked both Margaret and Elias. My emotions were all over the place with Margaret and her story. I suggest reading the series in order, however this can be read as a stand alone. I was pulled right in by Megan’s writing, I can’t wait to read more.

Ok, so I was hesitant to read this book because I wasn’t sure if it was satire or fan fiction or just a snub at the genre all together. I’m so glad I pushed my worry aside and cracked the binding.

The story line is one that we are familiar with but it has so many different angles that it is fresh and new (even though the characters are not).

I can’t go into much without giving away spoilers – I do want to say this though… It is listed as book 3 of a series and gives a vague reference to the series it is a part of. You know how there are those series or anthologies written by a bunch of different authors that have a slight common thread but don’t seem to really connect to the “theme”? This book is kind of like that. I really don’t think you have to read anything else in the series to have a firm grasp of the setting or plot points.

I say give it go; I don’t think you will be disappointed.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the third book in the Lucky Devil Series and i highly recommend reading the two previous books because some of the same characters carry over into this book and it just makes the reading experience better. This story was well written as all of her others are and it was refreshing to read something that was a little out of the norm for the books that are currently out. Margaret is our main character who is honestly just sick of life and believes that her life isn’t worth anything anymore. When a mysteriously handsome man picks her up on the street and takes her back to his luxurious apartment, Margaret has finally come to terms that this might be the end for her. But the stranger isn’t what he seems and he has a secret that will changer her life forever. We will just have to see if the change for the better or are things headed down an even more crazy path than before?
I cannot wait to read more by this author and i would recommend this book to a friend.

Death and the Crone is the third book in the Three of the Lucky Devil series by Megan Mackie. I would highly recommend reading the first two books in the series so you can meet some of the characters from the other two stories. I have to admit I did not know who Megan Mackie was before I was referred to her books, but now I love her writing. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a fresh author to start reading. This story is set in Chicago, which is where I grew up. It was fun looking at Chicago from a different point of view. Margaret is the main female character who is older and really has given up. She just does not see a positive end to her life. She has been asked by this stranger to come back to his apartment and that is where the story picks up. She learns that there is a silver lining in her cloud and not she needs to ride the wave. Will Margaret’s savior be all that he cracks up to be? Will Margaret feel like life is a journey she wants to continue?

I was intrigued by this book. I am so glad I decided to read it, I love that Margaret was an older character even if she was hard to like in the beginning because she was so grumpy, but life had not been good to her. This story had mystery a little bit of magic and I found it very well written. I was pulled into the story from the beginning and had a hard time putting it down. I found this story to be original and definitely worth reading. I recommend this book.

By: Megan Mackie
My Rating: 5 of 5 stars

Death and the Crone (The Lucky Devil Series Book 3) by Megan Mackie was a hooking, unique, outstanding read, that had me flipping the pages late into the night. Why does work have to ruin good books?

Not my first read by this author or in this series, I was super excited to get my hands on it. I will say that this book isn’t actually book three of the Lucky Devil Series, it’s a story set in that world, with different MC’s and plot. So it can be read as a standalone, and as a side story to the main one. But I do suggest reading the other books, because they are, amazing.

This book was so fun, unique and just, wow. It took the over used concept of the 100 year old supernatural something or other, that falls in love with the 16 year old minor, and flips it on its head. This book was all about taking those over use tropes and clichés and destroying them, while making new ones. The plot itself is original, and grabs your attention right away. Like the other books, this book has that spark of adventure and danger, keeping you engaged. The detail was movie like, and helped round out the story and characters.

Overall this book is a super high recommendation from me. So please take my stamp of approval that, this book will hook you right from that opening scene, until the last pages of that wicket closing ending.

Happy Reading

I give Death and the Crone: Book Three of the Lucky Devil Series by Megan Mackie, 5 stars.

Margaret has had a rough life. She’s now in her late 60s, has lived on the streets for many years, and has given up on life. She has outlived many of those she’s known and cannot wait for this hell to be over — she’s tired of her demons following her. When a beautiful young man takes her off the streets and offers for her to stay with him, she’s sure he’s taking her home to have his fun then kill her. But the promise of food and a warm place is just too tempting. And as time goes by, he doesn’t try anything but to make her comfortable and happy. Turns out this man is more than she ever imagined. Can she find a happiness that she lost a long, long time ago? If so, at what cost?

This series had me hooked from the beginning and this book is no different in that aspect. This book is considered a spin-off, we don’t see too much of most of the characters from the previous books, but the setting is the same. The main characters in this book though are just as interesting. This combination is not something I have read before. I read this genre quite frequently and I love that the author threw something different at me. The story itself is good too, Margaret struggles with the way she has been living vs what she has now. There is mystery in this man too — she knows there’s more to him and her curiosity gets the better of her. She takes us on the road of discovery with her. The story grabs you and pulls you in, not to mention some surprises along the way. This book can be read as a standalone, but I highly recommend the whole series.

If you are a fan of urban fantasy and/or paranormal romance, this book is for you.

4 stars

Death and the Crone is not the first book I’ve read in Megan Mackie’s Lucky Devil Series but if desired I believe this installment could be read on it’s own with little or no difficulty.
I most enjoyed Death and the Crone because of the break from a stereotypical storyline/main character. Instead of being young and easily desirable, Margaret is older with a much more colorful past. This book had me intrigued from
start to finish with a rocky road of action and adventure. While I did mention I believed this book could be read as a stand alone, I recommend reading the other books in the series before it as well for a bigger picture. I’ve truly learned to appreciate Megan Mackie’s style of writing and I’m looking forward to reading more.

Four Stars

Death and the Crone is the third book in the Lucky Devil Series by Megan Mackie. This book can be read as a stand alone, but you should really read this series in order because it is so entertaining from beginning to the end. I love that Margaret is an older woman and it’s really hard to decipher Elias and his motives. This story had me hooked from the beginning to the end. It is magnificently witty and such a different character builder this the age difference in the characters. Without giving away any spoilers I highly recommend this book and it is definitely worth the time reading. I can’t wait to see what Megan Mackie has in store for us.
