New world, new rules . . .
Alex is screwed. She's due at the fae Court of Enchantment in less than twenty-four hours, but she's not even close to being ready. Her job is hanging by a fraying thread. There's a new vampire master in town. And several of her werewolf friends have been captured by the Paranatural Task Force.
She's their best chance for release before the full moon reveals their secret, but the Lord of Enchantment is not someone you keep waiting—even when he happens to be your grandfather. All Alex can do is call in a favor, hope to hell she can survive the plots of the fae court, and hightail it home to salvage her life.
One mistake at court could change everything . . . .

Three and a half stars. Book three in this series. Alex is being hounded by O'Connell the PTF agent and her sort-of grandfather has summoned her to the Court of Enchantment. Once again I found myself at a loss with this book, there's a plethora of characters who come and go and just don't have enough personality to be distinguishable. I kept getting confused between Kai and Chase and Mica. The action starts in the mundane world, Alex takes a trip to the Court of Enchantment and then she's back in the mundane world - at 60% into the book a whole big load of nothing had happened. In fact, in retrospect I think you could have read the first two books and then picked this book up at 60% and not have missed anything. There seems to be so much setting things up for the future that the book drifts around rudderless which is a pity because when the action gets going it's really good and engaging and fast-paced - it just didn't have much to do with the middle part of the book. (view spoiler) Maybe I've been too harsh in my review, I did like the book but I also lost interest a bit when Alex returned from the Court of Enchantment and it was obvious that the story arc that had developed there wasn't going to be developed further. Looking on the bright side Alex either falls out with her friends or they get killed off or leave so it should be easier to keep track of who's who in the next book :) Based on the final third of the book I will definitely look forward to the next book in the series, it was action-packed, heart-in-your-mouth stuff. I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review.
There are some authors I forget how much I really like their writing, and this is one such author. This is the third book in the Magicsmith series, and each book gets better and better. Alex is all set for her debut at her grandfather’s court, but that’s not all. O’Connell is still after her and her friends, and he is determined to prove they are all fae. How will she keep everyone safe, especially when she has to go to another realm? I just loved this book. Alex is such an interesting character, as well as the secondary characters, and so much happens in this one. The fast-paced action really keeps me engrossed, and the great writing keeps me coming back for more. I am glad there is some closure for Alex at the end of this, but there are so many more threads to explore. If you love urban fantasy, you really have to try this series. Highly recommend! I received a complimentary copy which I voluntarily reviewed.
I received a free copy of FAERIE FORGED (Book 3 of the Magicsmith Series) by L.R. Braden in exchange for an honest review. It’s time to meet the king. The date is set and the time is nigh. Alex must leave the mortal realm for her formal introduction to faerie and to her grandfather, the Lord of Enchantment. In doing so, Alex must leave some of her supernatural acquaintances in the custody of the Paranatural Task Force and trust someone else to get them free before their secrets are revealed. If Alex can survive the faerie realm, she can return home where a second Faerie War seems inevitable. Attitudes are increasingly hostile towards supernatural beings, and rumors furiously circulate about disappearances in the paranatural community. Even as Alex takes responsibility for the freedom and safety of the others in the paranatural community, she experiences increasing feelings of isolation. I enjoyed this book and really like the series. In this book, we get to visit the faerie realm and to experience exactly why some of the faeries might choose to live in the mortal world. I recommend this series to fans of urban fantasy. #FaerieForged #NetGalley
