    OMG - Keeps Getting Better!

    I had no idea when I picked up the first book of this series by Lisa Shearin that I would be so throughly hooked! The books are well written, funny and exciting. The main character is no one's pushover, torn between sexy and good guy Mycheal and sexy and decidedly quasi wicked bad guy Tam... The books continue to be a page turner from beginning to the very end leaving you wanting more more and more. I look forward to every book. Would also recommend anything by Jim Butcher, Kim Harrison, LA Banks and Jennifer Estep to name a few.

    Kicking it into High Gear

    The fourth book in the Raine Benares series takes the conflict set up in the prior three and turns it up a notch. More is at stake and Raine is called upon to use her new found abilities and rapier wit as she has never before. Swashbuckling adventure, steamy romance and exotic locales combine in a completely satisfying installment. I'm looking forward more from this series.

    Hilarious fantasy

    Following hot on the heels of The Trouble with Demons, Raine Benares adventures are off to a heady start in Bewitched & Betrayed. Still bonded to that soul-sucking rock otherwise known as the Saghred, Raine has watched her minimal yet respectable magical abilities skyrocket and her enemies multiply just as fast. Which is somewhat understandable after Raine was unable to prevent the souls of six evil mages - including Raine's arch-nemesis Sarad Nukpana - from escaping the Saghred and who are now running rampant on the Island of Mid. Nukpana is one serious evil dude bent on total world domination and would like nothing better than to completely skewer Raine and all those near and dear to her. And since Nukpana has made this fight personal, Raine is more than happy to make it her mission in life to track him down once and for all. After all, she's a seeker.

    One of the best parts of this witty series has to be the every intriguing cast of secondary characters. Raine's less than law-abiding, yet unfailingly loyal family makes numerous appearances to my unending delight - including everyone's favorite pirate, Raine's cousin Phelan. His snarky remarks always leave me in stitches. Though the Benares clan's interactions were comical and even a little *gasp* heartwarming, they couldn't hold a candle to what we find out about commanding and by-the-book Paladin Mychael. Mr. Share No More Than Necessary finally opens up to Raine about his past and we get some very surprising insights into what I had previously seen as a pretty one-dimensional character. I don't want to spoil anything, but the man has depth. Depth and skills. And he's cute. Pretty much the triple threat.

    Even though Raine really has no time to even take a breath between one action scene and the next, her constant running stream of smart remarks keep the pace from becoming overwhelming. She's always willing to let humor diffuse the tension of any given situation and that is a fine quality indeed. Even though at times I sort of scratch my head at the story arc thus far, I'm quite pleased where Lisa Shearin has taken us in Bewitched & Betrayed. Plenty of action, plenty of confident, sexy men, and buckets of Raine's irreverent sense of humor. If you haven't given this snappy series a go, I'd highly recommend picking up all four books. Believe it or not, each is better than the last.
