But even as she deals with this threat, a hostile AI from a distant galaxy has sent three androids to Earth.

I'm not sure if its over but an exciting journey it was. Time for a new genre. 200+pgs /do enjoy it
I've really fallen in love with the Grumpy Old Wizards series and O'Riley's writing style and creativity as well. The story continues in this fifth installment and it doesn't let me down in the slightest. I absolutely love Josephine's character and have loved going on this journey with her. She's an old women, but that doesn't mean she doesn't have spunk to her. Tons of action and fantasy but some humorous and fun dialogue as well which is always a nice bonus.
