Con & Conjure - Lisa Shearin

Raine Benares is a seeker who finds lost things and people. Ever since the Saghred, a soul-stealing stone that's given her unlimited power, has bonded to her, the goblin king and the elves have wanted to possess its magic themselves. Which means a goblin thief and her ex-fiancé-an elven assassin-are after her. To survive, she'll need the help of her notorious criminal family. 

My thoughts:
It took me a while to get this book, it was always out of stock, I even ordered it once when it was in and then they cancelled on me. But then, then I got it, and started reading it the same day.

Shit is still going to hell. She still has the damn stone that will break her. People is still trying to kill or catch her.

But she does have Mychael at her side (boo! Team TAM!), but by now I do realize that will not happen, it will surely by M by her side at the end.

She still has her cool cousin :)

In this one, like I said, there is a hunt going on, for her, and a hunt for someone else. But she is good at was she does, but now, only one book left. Big things will happen and who will be left standing ..who knows.

Conclusion:
Yes I have ordered book 6, even though I am on a book ban, but who cares, I just had to have it.

  3. Its that good for it to be always out of stock then. Moreinportantly, it forced you to lift your ban for it

  4. Must be a good series to make you quit your book ban, either that or lack of will power.

  5. I never ever stick to book bans either, so don't feel bad. :-) This sounds like such an awesome series, and I suspect I'll be Team Tam too.

  9. Ah, Lisa Shearin! I think if I end up liking the next book of her SPI Files, I may start to check out her other series maybe starting with this one.

  10. Book bans do not include books we must have. At least I think that is the law or something. The law of the universe that cannot be ignored. :)

  13. I like how unspoilery your reviews are. :)

  14. each time I read one of your reviews I remember that I need to buy book 2!

  15. Yup, here's another series I was completely obvious to until today. This is definitely not good for my self-esteem... I used to think of myself as a decent reader, but actually there's - so - much - I don't even know about... It's disheartening, really. I love the sound of this, and I rather suspect I'd enjoy the entire series, if not for that pesky time issue that I have... Great review!
