Publisher's Summary

No good deed goes unpunished....

For years, my family was in possession of the top half of an ancient sword. Now this dangerous artifact has been stolen, and it’s up to me to recover it. With the help of my friends, I must follow the trail of clues to find both halves of the sword before they can be reforged. When my investigation leads me to an Elvis-impersonating vampire, a magic carpet lizard, and a homicidal banshee with no regard for the Fountains of Bellagio, I know I’m in for a rough ride.

My magic is the only thing that stands between absolute power and preservation. Can I prevent history from recurring or are we doomed to repeat it?

Outfox is an urban fantasy mystery with humor, action and adventure, a powerful heroine, and a charming yet unlikely hero.

self centered spoiled brat heroine

In real life she'd be thrown out of college on her ear .She is an advanced student who is constantly harassing and interfering with the professors,who are trying to teach the students,who actually want to learn.If they try to teach something that isn't in her very narrow field of interest she makes loud comments,and does everything that she can to interfere with the class.If she gets even the mildest criticism for her behavior she says that it's because all of her professors want her to fail.In real life people like her end up unemployed and living in their parents basement,which is of course non their fault ,because all of their employers have been out to get them too.

Mediocre

I hate to leave negative reviews, but, while the story and narrator weren't bad, per se, the product as a whole, was lacking.

I didn't like the narrator. She seemed to have three kinds of tone and cadence...and, she used them for all the characters. Brynn and Peter are now intertwined in my mind. I couldn't tell if the narrator was trying to hint that Brynn maybe was more of a tomboy, and, liked women, or, if this was just an impression I got from her simply sounding like Peter.

The story was okay. I did finish this book, and the first one. There were a few moments where I "couldn't wait" to hear or learn a specific thing, but, they were few and far between.

The heroine is static, and... young. She's stubborn to a fault, and, not someone I'd personally choose to associate too much with, if I were in this reality. Yes, she's smart, she's an overachiever, and has great lineage, but, where's the growth, the reality, and the humbleness? There are constant reminders that she is Danielle Montrose Degraffe, and that she is not her grandmother, but, what does this really tell us? We never learn what it looks like for the "addict" grandmother, and how Dani compares. Yes, we know they're both very powerful, and they look alike, but, what does it really mean, to be addicted to magic? Does that mean you always use it, even when you don't have to? Is it the tingling or buzzing Dani is experiencing, where she has to stop herself from using magic? If so, at what point does she realize she ALREADY is addicted to magic, and, rectify the situation? I would've liked to see more character growth in the first two books, to continue on with the series.

Also, I think it's utterly ridiculous that she should be doing these missions...there's a whole organization out there, that's supposed to take care of these things, and yet they're letting a second year student run the op? Just how old is a second year? Are we talking, college, or high school? Either way, what's the AMF doing, that they're not getting involved in the overthrow of a troll, and, reforging of a super-powered sword?

Furthermore, poor Peter. Dani treats him pretty poorly, and, I found myself constantly wishing she would "wise up." Poor, poor Peter.

Another great mystery adventure

Another exciting mystery adventure with Dani and Peter. I just wished that Dani was a little less over the top, self involved, and beyond high self esteem. It's great to be confident but her "I am so perfect" "I am the definition of overachiever" can be too much. I love how much she cares for others but I wish she would tone it down. I can see that she is growing and evolving so I have hope for her and Peter, even though he is painted as a bit of a bad boy, is actually a grounding force for her.

Kept me interested

I did enjoy the story, however the author WAY over uses the word “said” and it’s a huge turn off. I almost stopped listening and am not sure I want to listen to the final book in the series. Also, it’s one thing to be confident, it’s another to be unbearably full of yourself. It’d be nice to see “princess” knocked down a peg or 2.

Entertaining and fun story

Great listening, fun story of a group of special witches, and uniquely skilled friends on a mission to find a special sword of great power. Fun

Heroine is Pretty Snotty and Smug

First of all, I don’t dislike the story and the narration is quite good … however the main character is pretty self absorbed. She shows little respect for anyone. She belittles those around her constantly. That is not a sign of confidence, rather just the opposite. I’m sure the author didn’t intend that but it really makes the heroine unappealing. I found myself wishing someone would kick her butt to bring her down a notch. I’d say it’s very unlikely I will root for her. It’s a bit sad when you can’t relate to a character.

If you want a series that you’re not especially vested in, this one is for you. Just enjoy the story without an emotional attachment.

Enjoyable

Enjoyable book about young witches with extra power and Hookspa. I enjoyed the education on different spells, background to the magic objects, animals, hybreds and characters. However the books are too short for the money. I admire the authors skill but I just can’t afford this series. Thank you for letting us sample. ❤️

I'm torn with this series

I like the story and the narration is ok. It would have been a sound four stars but there are too many points that are niggling and spoiling it.
He said, She said, He said, they said, really grates after a while. Also, starting investigating a theft without first speaking to your smuggler friend is just daft. The lead character is so driven and cock sure of herself I'm amazed anyone likes her at all, yet her friends seem ok with that.
I have no idea of the author realises but there are a few too many little inclusions that sound straight from other fantasy stories. The Accords, Fred and George, etc. These might well be total coincidences but as there are so many and the author also uses numerous snippets from real films, it seems less likely. There is nothing wrong with taking inspiration from other work but if the similarities are obvious then it needs re worked.
Even with all these, the story still manages to be original and is worth a listen. So much so that I really can't decide if I recommend it or not.
