Death and the Crone: Book Three of the Lucky Devil Series
by Megan Mackie

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.

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.

Death and the Crone by Megan Mackie is the third book in the Lucky Devil series. This book can be read as a stand-alone book however the whole series is fantastic so I would recommend reading them all!
I have to admit, after reading the blurb for this book I was a little unsure as to whether or not I would like it. I’m not a huge fan of books where the women are older, I struggle to connect with them more. However I should have never doubted the work of Ms Mackie because she did a fantastic job wit this story. I really enjoyed reading about Margaret. The way her character was introduced really made me feel for her. It gave the emotional connection that I find is so often missing from older characters. And her character development throughout was so well done.
The storyline was overall ok, although not for me the best in this series. It felt a little more disconnected from the other books. However it was still a great read and one you should definitely try!

This was a departure for me from my normal in several ways. I feel like I should preface my review with the fact that this book is more a standalone addition to the Lucky Devil Series. There are few moments where we see hints of the previous books but it is all done in a way you could completely read this book on its own without confusion. With that said, I did enjoy the book.

Megan Mackie takes an age old story and gives it a completely new spin with Margaret and her beau. I enjoyed the newness and really that was what made the novel for me. I will be back to see what happens in the next novel, fingers crossed that it continues our other two novels because I am dying to dive back into their worlds.

This is the third book that I have read by this author and again I really enjoyed it. Although part of a series this book had more of a standalone feel than the others so I think it could be easily read without reading the first two books however I would highly recommend those also!
The authors writing is very good, she knows how to capture your interest straight away. The storyline was strong and the characters were interesting to read about. I liked that the story was a little different to what I was expecting; it’s always nice when a story isn’t predictable. It was nice to see characters from the previous two books crossover into this one; it did help tie the series together in my opinion. Margaret and Elias were very interesting characters and definitely not what I was expecting! I enjoyed following their story and all the twists and turns that came with it.
Another wonderful read from Ms Mackie and one that I highly recommend! I look forward to reading more from her again in the future!

Death and the Crone by Megan MacKie a five-star read that will turn you on your head. This is number three in the Lucky Devil series and it could be read as stand-alone, but I have read the series and loved them all. It’s the way the author turns what you think on its head and gives you a different side of the story. Margret is a great character and will make you read her great story, she is fresh and interesting and gives us great wit to her character. Elias was brilliantly written, the whole unsureness about who he was and what he was that unfolded like a flower as you read it. The settling was great, and you can smell the Chicago streets as you read the pages. This is a great series and one you will enjoy.

Death and the Crone: Book Three in the Lucky Devil Series
By Megan Mackie
Rated 4 stars

This is the third in the Lucky Devil Series but can be read as a stand alone. The flows very nicely and before I knew it I was caught up in the story. The characters are good. Margaret is a drug addict. She knows there is nothing else in life for her but that. Elias finds her and removes her. He gets her cleaned up to start or finish her life. They each get something they don’t expect out of this.

This is a good story. I kinda figured out the “what” was happening but not really the “why”. It was weird at first but then became intriguing. I needed to know how their story would end. The author did a good job of pulling me into the story until I couldn’t wait to find out what happened
