Three months ago, I landed a job as a bartender. But not at a bar—at a guild. Yeah, the magic kind.

I'm not a badass mage like my three smokin' hot best friends. I'm not a sorcerer or an alchemist, or even a wussy witch. I'm just a human, slinging drinks like a pro and keeping my non-magical nose out of mythic business. Seriously, I know my limits.

So why am I currently standing in a black-magic ritual circle across from a fae lord?

Somewhere behind me, my three mage friends are battling for their lives. Somewhere near my feet is the rogue witch I just knocked out with a stolen spell. And I have about five seconds to convince this very angry sea god not to shmoosh me like a bug.

I'm pretty sure this wasn't part of the job description.

I received this book for free from Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

I ate Annette Marie’s latest book within two days.

I was over the moon excited to read Two Witches and a Whiskey early on because I have much curiosity and I hoped Annette Marie would give some insight???

Yeah, no, that didn’t happen. It’s safe to say that both Di from Book Reviews by Di and I have even more questions after devouring the third book in The Guild Codex: Spellbound series.

As usual, we have a new adventure.

The greatest part of this entire series is each book having its own plot in addition to the overall plot in the series, so there’s never really a cliffhanger.

Two Witches and a Whiskey continues to follow Tori as she navigates the Mystic world, continuing her friendships among the Crow and Hammer guild that readers are introduced to in Three Mages and a Margarita. In the third novel of The Guild Codex: Spellbound series, Tori accidentally gets her friends involved in dealing with a fae lord.oops

Plus we get some returning characters from Dark Arts and a Daiquiri! (My fangirl heart can’t take it, ahhh.)

Internal Struggles™ with Tori

As much Tori loves hanging out with the Mythic community and her close circle of friends with Aaron, Ezra and Kai, we continue to see Tori struggling internally. The Crow and Hammer guild appreciates and values her and treats her as though she is a member. However, because she is human, there is always the thought that at any moment, she could be taken away from the world and continue with her life the way before meeting the Mythics. Tori is constantly wanting to fit in with the other members throughout the series, and this continues with the third book.

Character development and relationships!

I absolutely adore the relationships between the characters and have been since the first book. It’s really clear how close Aaron, Ezra and Kai are with their interactions despite the varying differences between their personalities. While most of the story focuses on Tori, we get some insight into Kai and Ezra as well.

There is also much character development that continues to happen in Two Witches and a Whiskey with Tori. We see the others helping her come to terms of accepting that they won’t abandon her after all the memories that have been created in the short time they’ve been together.

Words can’t express my excitement, omg.

Y’ALLLLL I had trouble writing a coherent review without screaming GO READ THIS SERIES RIGHT NOWTwo Witches and a Whiskey is a fast-paced novel and I loved every moment we get with Tori as she continues to cause shenanigans and works her way through it like a professional™.

  1. I never knew this series existed! And now that I do, I’m definitely going to go back and check out the original one since it sounds right up my alley.

    I love this contemporary fantasy, so I’m here for this.

  2. ooooooh, I love/hate books that leave you with even more questions when they’re through. I also love character cameos and lots of interpersonal relationships! this series has been on my TBR as I search for non-romance centered NA, and it’s so good to hear each sequel is as good as the one before.

    also, fictional characters have given me unrealistic expectations of how exciting life should be, but I definitely couldn’t handle the situations like a professional^TM so it’s probably better than I’m just living these experiences vicariously instead of firsthand 😅

    • OOOOOOOO good, yes, add this and get going on reading this series. I’m always on the search for non-romance centered NA and try to champion those that I find and enjoy. 😉

      “fictional characters have given me unrealistic expectations of how exciting life should be, but I definitely couldn’t handle the situations like a professional™” What a mood, Isabelle. What a big mood.
