Publisher's Summary

Magick is real. It's also highly illegal - not that I'm worried about that.

Sure, I heal faster than most, and I've got a sixth sense for brewing tea that can fix just about any problem, but my cafe isn't exactly a hotbed of paranormal activity. At least it wasn't...until some psycho attacked me and woke up the freaky, forbidden magick inside, earning me a one-way ticket to jail. Now, a covert magickal university is offering me a deal: my freedom in exchange for help with the Tarot prophecies - cryptic predictions they believe hold the key to stopping a deadly apocalyptic plot.

Predictions only I can decipher. Because the witch who divined them? She died years ago. I should know. She was my mother.

Grab your grimoires, girls. Magick school's officially in session.

All I have to do now is master my crazy powers, decode the doomsday prophecies, outwit a mean-girl coven that puts the psycho in psychic, and survive the temptations of one very naughty professor and three scorching-hot, overprotective mages shadowing my every move.

There's only one problem. If I'm right about the prophecies? Survival isn't in the cards for any of us.

Contains mature themes.

Snarky heroine ftw.

Our MC is pretty delightful, especially as voiced by Nicole. She's strong, clever, and funny. She does have a few whiney monologues, but as a character she's not tragic or emotionally weak like many other RH heroines.

The boys seem to fit the standard "types" too cleanly for my liking, but they are independently interesting and well developed.

My only pet peeve with the audiobook is the mismatch of character presentation by the narrators. Nicole's version of Stevie was energetic and fun while Stephen's version was more meek/weak. If I only heard his take on her I wouldn't have liked her. If a book is narrated by more than one person, I need them to have a consensus on how they are going to present each character.

It’s not you it’s me

Ok I really wanted to like this book. Interesting premise, well written, engaging strong lead, all the things I like in books. However, it is giving off reverse haram vibes and with 3 hrs left I called it quits. I just really don’t like when the main character isn’t into one person. I have a hard enough time with books where it takes the lead time to figure out who she likes but I can’t do several interests, nothing wrong with it just not my cup of tea. So you should really give this book a credit unless you want more defined relationships like me.

Loved it!

I like magic fantasy but having studied "real world" magical systems some, it appears to me that most magical fantasy authors have only studied only other fantasy. The Tarot is well known enough I thought this might have some depth, even if the author had never attempted magic. I was not disappointed. Good writing, mysteries, plot twists, characters. A fun read. Looking forward to the sequel!

awesome story

I really like the story so far. it's well written and thought out. The only issue I had was the female narration.

her voice cones across as 30 yr old pack a day smoker.

Arcana comes with a surprise or three

What can I say about the book except that I loved it! I was so engrossed with the tale that I just couldn’t stop listening. The narration was absolutely perfect and I loved how the narrators both changed the voices so that you can actually follow with which character was speaking!

If an audiobook was a cursed email chain

This is a dumpster fire in terms of production quality but the story is interesting.

The female voice actor needs to be played at .9 speed other wise it sounds like google translate reading and even then the beginning Im not 100% sure if it was human read. Once you get a couple chapters in she sounds better or you just get used to the cursed half human half Alexa sound.

The male voice actor doesn't read the male voices unless the chapter is from a male perspective so good luck trying to reconsile that. Plus he over emphasizes everything which is a delight to listen to.

I genuinely love this audiobook but I promise you there is nothing quality about it but the actual story. It was well written and interesting but the true blessing is how bad everything else is.

Better than I expected

I love the story’s plot. It had me not wanting to stop listening. In fact I hoped and prayed it was a longer series when I finished and it is! I’m excited to hear more of this story! The first book set up a nice little cliffhanger to keep you wanting more!

Great story!

This kept my attention the whole time. There is plenty of mystery and still some unanswered questions. I look forward to the rest of the series.

Good experience

I had problems getting engaged to the story. I didn't find myself attached to the characters. That being said, the story is actually a neat creative one, and the narration was on point. I'm a huge fan of Nicole Poole.

I will come back to the books at a later time, I only listened to the first one.

A great book by a great author with only one annoyance!

Sarah Piper is a great author and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed many of her books. Nicole Poole is one of my favourite Audible narrators but in this series of books I have one complaint about her and Stephen Dexter’s narrative. Call me petty but it’s incredibly frustrating when book character’s names are pronounced incorrectly, especially for main or significant characters! Both Nicole and Stephen have obviously never come across the name “Isla” before as they pronounce it as it’s spelt (The correct pronunciation being eye-la). Despite “Ani” being written in the books description, both narrators call him Arnie. No, these mistakes aren’t huge and don’t detract from the storyline but I personally cringe every time I hear them! (Just saying!).

Fantastic!

I loved this book, I was hooked from the beginning and couldn't put it down, I loved Stevie's character she's delicously snarky and she's a fighter, I'll definately be listening to the whole series.

well worth reading on to the second

well worth reading I thoroughly enjoyed the story and the narrator's I have no problem following the timeline I'm sure some of the plot had a few holes in it but I have read so many that are far worse than this yep give it a go
