Publisher's Summary

King Randor has been defeated. Queen Alassa has taken her throne. The Kingdom of Zangaria can look forward to a new age of peace and prosperity. But their victory came at a terrible price. A moment before his death, King Randor hit Emily with a powerful curse.

She's lost her magic. She's losing her mind. She may soon lose her life.

As rumors start to spread, as her enemies start to gather, Emily searches desperately for the key to unlock the curse before it is too late. But the only hope seems to rest with House Fellini, an enigmatic family of magicians. Crippled, powerless, helpless, Emily places her life in their hands. If they can't help her, no one can.

But House Fellini has its secrets. As the family struggles to undo the curse before it's too late, Emily is drawn into a decades-old mystery that threatens to destroy the family, shatter her life...and smash the entire world beyond all hope of repair.

Not the best book of the series.

Probably the worst. Clearly Emily is depressed in this book. It is just depressingly depressing. To paraphrase a movie. "this book went full depressed, full emo, never go full depressed, full emo"

Audible's rating is:
1 Star is "not for me"
2 Stars "it is okay"
3 Stars "pretty good"
4 Stars "it's great"
5 Stars "I love it"

How I see the stars.
A one star book could be a very dry topic, story,crude or someone preaching down to the reader. I generally don't have 1 star books. I will just return them and go my own way. My last 3 were from the same series, I had hit a very dry spot in my listening.

A 2 star story, would be something that was phoned in by a writer that typically has done much better work. I have a couple of reviews from authors that just seemed to phone it in, one most recently from an author that decided to mix current politics into his novel. If I wanted that, I would just watch the news.

A 3 star review is where I really start. It means I enjoyed the book. That I did not have a hard time following it (I have lost alot of my conversational hearing). That the story kept to a plot, the characters were not static, and the world built was plausable.

A 4 star review is something that I really enjoyed. It puts the author on my map to keep an eye out for. I go through 12-15 books a month. (audible is my primary source of entertainment. ) I will search for the author's works regularly, and seek out their stories for future purchases.

A 5 star review, These are not as rare as one would think. These are the books where the characters grow, learn, act according to their nature. Where the world is not only plausible but believable. Where there are economic systems, businesses, rules of law that make sense. Where the story is woven is progressed and told with caring and dedication. These are books, series, authors and narrators that bring it all in a package.

So, when reading my reviews, if anyone does, that is how I judge the books.

Another great book

I love how this story has so much depth and has so much more to tell! Really excited for the next book! I know it just came out but I don’t know if I can wait for the audio! Keep me coming!

Whining

though I've enjoyed most of the books in this series. I felt I was listening to a whining child the entire book. I am looking forward to the next book in hopes it is as entertaining as previous books.

Crap

Nuttall isn’t interested in telling a story about magic, he only wants to tell the story of Emily the doormat getting abused by everyone she meet. Crap book from a crap author

Love, Love, Love this Series

A downtrodden girls from earth winds up in a magical world. She discovered she too has magic there and that is where the story starts…

This series is so well written I can’t help but listen to it over and over again.

Another Great SIM Book

Good mystery story. Answers questions presented several book before. I really liked it.

I hope the series continues long into the future. It is the most intelligent fantasy series I have ever read.

completely unnecessary

story was more crap. That's 2 books in a row. this was slightly better, but quite literally missed every single opportunity to bring back what we enjoyed about the series like spellcrafting mixed with science. hell, even the lesson she was supposed to learn seems lost mere moments after she told herself she would learn from it. There are only a few interesting parts within the book which is the only reason it gets 2 stars instead of 1 like the previous book. I am really worried that the rest of these books are going to miss the mark on what made people start reading or listening in the 1st place, but I have already bought up to book 23.

Decent story that dragged for a while

Be prepared to hear this kind of prose many, many times:

Emily swallowed hard, and kicked herself. The silence grew louder. She was suddenly aware how little the translucent robe has left to the imagination. Emily made a face and groaned inwardly. "Charming," Lady Barb commented.

Besides that, I have enjoyed the story.

Emily, You're only worth the is in magic. shame.

This one was very hard to get through. Emily was too easily broken and whiney throughout.

Ho hum

I’m really enjoying this series, the story is great and the narrator is talented.
After 17 books I have lost patience with the narrators seeming inability to check the pronunciation of words and names. There is no such thing as a princess re ger nt and I’m sure her name isn’t ele phone, it’s Regent re-gent and el ef oney like Persephone.
It’s really difficult to enjoy a story when you can’t stop thinking about the pronunciation and wondering how many other names are not what they seem.
The only advantage is that I now want to buy the books, just to make sure the characters have the names I think they do.
It’s a really shame as with a little bit of homework this narrator would easily make my top ten.
The author is trying Hard, so hard, by an order of magnitude. He even swapped out “so” with “very” lol
Of them all so far this is my least favourite, it seemed to drag a little, but I would still recommend the series, I feel like this book is the build up to something great.

Underwhelmed me

Instead of writing lots of things in one book the series tends now to focus on fewer things a reiterating them over and over. Also the telling is stereotypical.
