About the Author

Shanna Swendson earned a journalism degree from the University of Texas and used to work in public relations but decided it was more fun to make up the people she wrote about, so now she's a full-time novelist. She's the author of the contemporary fantasy Enchanted, Inc. series and Fairy Tale series and the young adult steampunk fantasy Rebel Mechanics, which was named one of VOYA's best science fiction, fantasy, and horror titles of the year and which has been included on the Lone Star Reading List by the Texas Library Association. She's also contributed essays to a number of books on pop culture topics. She's a frequent guest at writing conferences and science fiction conventions, where she gets to talk about books and television and consider it "work." When she's not writing, she's usually discussing books and television on the Internet, singing in or directing choirs, knitting, taking ballet classes, or attempting to learn Italian cooking. She lives in Irving, Texas, with several hardy houseplants and too many books to fit on the shelves.

I got hooked on this series when I checked one out at my library. They didn't have all of them so I bought the ones they didn't have. The characters were believable, the situations the heroine found herself in were funny and the series was played out well. You do have to read them in order to keep the story line intact though unlike some other series. This was just a lighthearted read if you like fantasy and magical fiction.

This is book 7 in the Enchanted, Inc series by Shanna Swendson.  I received this as an eARC from Netgallery.  I have to admit, the minute I saw this listed, I wanted it.  I even called my sister as soon as I was approved and gave her the neener neener song.  It went something like, "I get to read it and you-oo don't."  *sigh* Not my finest adult moment, but I was excited! We had gone 4 long years between books 4 and 5, so being able to read and enjoy the series again with books coming out regularly is thrilling. I can't advise as to whether you could read this as a stand alone book, since I have read all the other book in the series.  But looking back, I don't think you would be too lost if this was the first one you picked up.   This book takes place a few months after the exciting ending in No Quest for the Wicked.  When Katie destroyed the magical broach, leaving her with magical powers instead of magical immunity, she has to learn how to use these new abilities.  But on account of Owen was with her when it happened, he got his magical powers back too.  And since the entire magical community is happier with Owen not having magical powers, they weren't supposed to tell anyone. This means that Katie has had to train in secret.   All is going great and she is having lots of fun using her magic powers. That is until she finds out that unlike all other magic users, she isn't going to get to keep them.  The backlash from the broach simply activated the lanent magic inside her.  Basically, when the magic she currently has runs out, she is back to being magically immune.  In the mean time, magic continues to work for her and on her.  Just in time for the evil Elf Lord to put the whammy on her and Owen, locking them away in an alternate reality version of New York City.  Katie is living out her very own Romantic Comedy.  Too bad that Owen isn't her Mr. Right... or is he?   This was another great book in an exceptional series.  Katie is a down to earth Texas girl, and even though she is in New York City, she hasn't lost any of that southern small town charm.  Her interacts and reactions to both magic and big city life are a large part of what makes this series great.  Add in the long running, slow moving relationship with Owen Palmer, wizard and hottie and it just gets better.  What has been great about the entire series and continues with this book is the growth of the main characters.  They are maturing and changing little by little in each new book.  Add in the fun plots and quirky secondary characters and these are just all round fun books to read.  This one doesn't disappoint.  I gave it 4 stars on Goodreads.

Good series, however Swendson LEAVES IT UNFINISHED and WILL NOT WRITE THE 8TH BOOK. Per the author the story is "pretty much closed out in my head". BE WARNED, YOU'LL READ 7 GREAT BOOKS AND THE AUTHOR LEAVES YOU HANGING. You'll just have to make up your own ending because Swendson's moved on without completing this series.

I've enjoyed all of the books in this series, and this one did not disappoint.  This series has had me cracking up and bummed that it ended.  Okay for teens too.

A funny, magical mystery tour to lift your nightly news spirits. Katie and Owen are working out how to hide his magic and train hers. I love this story line and this book is a wonderful addition to it. If you're from Texas, I hope you've read the previous books because her Grandma has come to NY. I haven't tired yet of re-reading these when I have nothing new, so take the plunge and pick up Shanna's books today!
