Description from goodreads :

  When I found myself facing down the scariest black-magic felon in the city, practically daring him to abduct me, I had to wonder exactly how I ended up here.

It all started when I accidentally landed a job as a bartender—but not at a bar. At a guild, populated by mages, sorcerers, alchemists, witches, and psychics. Good thing this lame-o human is adaptable, right?

Then my favorite guild members—three sexy, powerful, and intermittently charming mages—asked for my help. Did they want access to my encyclopedic knowledge of cocktails? Oh no. They wanted to wrap me up in a pretty ribbon and plunk me in the crosshairs of a murderous rogue to lure him out of hiding.

So that's what we did. And that's why I'm here. About to be kidnapped. Oh, and our grand plan for safely capturing said murderous rogue? Yeah, that completely fell apart about two minutes ago.

Why did I agree to this again?
Note: The three mages are definitely sexy, but this series isn't a reverse harem. It's 100% fun, sassy, fast-paced urban fantasy.

My opinion:
          I couldn't resist jumping into this book as soon as i finished the first one since it was so  good and i'm really happy to say that the quality is as good if not better in this one! Tori has a lot to do on her own this time and it helps her to understand more what she is currently living. Yes she has a traumatic past but she is now able to fight for herself  and for those she loves.

To help a young runaway, she doesn't hesitate to put herself in danger  and it doesn't really go how she expected things to go. I loved the Ghost  in a sense he is perfect for Tori, loyal and protective but living dangerously  like Tori who can't keep her mouth shut^^;;  and she does take risks for what she believes in....which allow her to make unexpected allies as well as put her life on the line.

I loved to see different kind of fae and  some moments were really hilarious. This story is full of action and gives us more information about the universe as well which was wonderful . We focus more on Tori and the Ghost but we do see the guys and members of the guild as well .

It also promise a lot of fun in the future instalments when we think of a orb or of some escaped villains so i'm itching to start book 3 as soon as possible!

Really a great urban fantasy not to be missed

Score:  4,5/5
