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!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I give The Devil’s Day (The Lucky Devil Book 3) by Megan Mackie 5 stars.

This series grabbed me from the very beginning and each book gets better and better. This one is no exception. There is plenty of action and suspense going on, but we also see how much Rune and St. Benedict have grown, and continue to grow. The characters are what really make this series. But they are not the only ones in this book. You will see those from previous books return, as well as some new characters. The story itself is so complex and enchanting. The author does a fantastic job of creating a world and story unlike any other. While in the same world as the previous books and an obvious continuation, this story is unique and enthralling. I hope this series never ends.

If you are a fan of urban fantasy with realistic main characters, this book and series are for you. In my opinion, it can be read as a standalone, but you will understand more if you read the previous books first.

The Devil’s Day (The Lucky Devil Series Book 3) by Megan Mackie, is just the next in a series of very excellent and imaginative stories. I have been following this story with avid interest. I’ve really been cheering for Rune to step into her role as Mistress of her house. And the relationship between her and St. Benedict keeps me on the edge of my seat. Slowly but surely all my questions are being answered. This is a great story on its own but its fantastic when you start at the beginning. You owe it to yourself to start at the beginning of The Lucky Devil Series you will be glad you did.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Devil’s Day by Megan Mackie is the third book in the Lucky Devil series, and was a good read. This book is not a stand alone novel, it’s much better to read the other books in the series first. I have read the first book in this series, but not the second book, and because of that I was thrown off quite a bit in this story. I still enjoyed this novel, but I would have enjoyed it a lot more if I would have read the second installation as well. The storyline was really good, and the characters were great. This series (what I have read anyway) is definitely a good read.
