    On the whole, this anthology is good (3.5 stars); I liked it. You can read my full review on my WordPress Blog, Flora's Musings... Book 1 - Chosen (The Djinn Wars #1) by Christine Pope – When a fatal fever nearly wipes out the entire world's population, the survivors of what became known as "the Dying" believe the worst is in the past ...

You can read my full review on my WordPress Blog, Flora's Musings... Book 1 - Chosen (The Djinn Wars #1) by Christine Pope – When a fatal fever nearly wipes out the entire world's population, the survivors of what became known as "the Dying" believe the worst is in the past ... I have come across Ms Pope’s work in other box sets; this story in another YA tale that although is good, isn’t my cup of tea due to the theme and how the plot develops. It reminds me of Castaway or The Martian; the pace is slow, the tale doesn’t get my adrenaline pumping as only has a couple of action/fight scenes and the content/scenes and how they are described are PG rated. The romance aspect is nice but not what I’m looking for in a PNR or UF novel; I enjoy more passion! (There were also quite a few incorrect pronoun uses throughout this book which jarred, i.e. I instead of me.) My Rating: 2 stars (It’s OK) Book 2 – Dead Rising (The Templar #1) by Debra Dunbar – Solaria Ainsworth was born a Templar, destined to take up the mantle of responsibility and duty as her family’s Order had done for hundreds of years. Except she refuses to take her Oath of Knighthood. Ms Dunbar is a new-to-me author and I really enjoyed her writing style; I found this book very easy to read, I liked the premise and world that Ms Dunbar used here, it had a good collection of characters, well paced plot (with a few unexpected twists and turns) and a nice balance of tension, action and sexual tension without any actual sex scenes! I was gripped. It also makes the reader question pre-conceived (and possibly historic) ideas of what constitutes good and evil. I look forward to reading the next book in this series. My Rating – 5 stars (Loved it!) Book 3 – Hidden Blade (Soul Eater #1) by Pippa DaCosta - Kicked out of the underworld and cursed to walk this Earth for all eternity, Ace Dante is not the hero New York needs, but when Egyptian gods start killing, Ace is the city’s only defence. I am already a big fan of Ms DaCosta and really enjoyed The Veil Series. I liked that this story features the deities from the Egyptian pantheon (something I haven’t come across before), the plot is a great murder/crime mystery thriller, there’s lots of action/fighting but it missed getting 5 stars because I just didn’t connect completely to Ace Dante. My Rating - 4 stars (Really Liked it) Book 4 - Wolves (I Bring The Fire #1) by C. Gockel - When Amy prays for help, Loki the Norse God of Mischief and Chaos isn’t the savior she has in mind. I am already a fan of Ms Gockel’s writing style and have read this book within another box set back in 2015. I enjoyed it just as much the second time around; fast pace, action-packed, lots of twists & turns in the plot, lovely character development and great use of the Norse pantheon & myths. The only thing that takes the edge off for me is Amy’s persistent and continued insistence that what was happening was not real; I think her disbelief went on for too long. My Rating - 4 stars (Really Liked It) Book 5 – Bitter Ashes (Bitter Ashes #1) by Sara C. Roethle – She’s not their long lost fairy princess, she’s their executioner. Legends of Norse Myth and Necromancy collide in this fast-paced Urban Fantasy with a dark romantic twist. I thought this book was OK. Ms Roethle is a new-to-me author and although I found her writing style easy to read and the thesis intriguing and unique, it is the fact that it is written in the first person from our main character’s point of view and unfortunately I couldn’t connect to Madeline (Maddy) Ville at all; the decisions she made and the way she viewed her situation were incomprehensible to me plus the cliffhanger at the end of the book sorta sealed this book’s fate. My Rating - 2 stars (It’s OK) Book 6 – The Last Necromancer (The Ministry of Curiosities #1) by C.J. Archer - For 5 years, Charlie has lived as a boy in the slums, but when she's arrested, her only means of escape lies with raising the dead. Now people are hunting her for her necromancy, but only one man succeeds in capturing her: a man known as Death, as compelling as he is frightening. I have come across Ms Archer’s work before and, unusually for me considering the YA and historic genres of this story, liked it. Ms Archer has again surprised me – I loved this book. The story is set in Victorian London is told from our main character’s point of view; an 18yr old girl. I liked this book because Charlie is intelligent, resourceful, witty and has strength of character and gumption. The plot is well balanced; gritty, heart-warming, tense, has unexpected twists & turns, made me chuckle and it’s full of great characters. I was hooked and will be adding all of the books in The Ministry of Curiosities to my wish list! My Rating - 5 stars (Loved it!) Book 7 – Nefertiti's Heart (Artifact Hunters #1) by A.W. Exley - 1861. In a steam and mechanically powered London, feisty Cara Devon uses her dead father's secret notebook as a guide in her pursuit of powerful ancient artifacts. A W Exley is another new-to-me author as I rarely chose to read historical novels. It was good but I’m unsure as to why I didn’t enjoy this book more; I wasn’t completely hooked (maybe it was the steampunk setting that I struggled with…?). Although the murder mystery plot was intriguing, I had worked out who the culprit was well before the end, I loved our heroine, Cara Devon, she’s just what I look for in a leading female, Lord Lyons (aka Nathaniel Tren/Villainous Viscount), was dangerously mouth-watering and I enjoyed their evolving relationship. I loved the host of supporting characters too - on both sides of the law – and thought they added a great depth to the book. My Rating - 3 stars (It’s Good) Book 8 – Lost Wolf (Curse of the Moon #1) by Stacy Claflin – She’s hiding a dark secret. It already killed her once. I have come across Ms Claflin’s work before and only mildly enjoyed the experience. This book is written about a teen for teen readers, I felt that even the adult characters had ‘teenager personalities’. The plot line was unsophisticated both in the story arc & execution. Not my cup of tea. My Rating - 1 star (I didn’t like it) Book 9 – Thunder Hunter (Viking Souls #1) by Rachel Medhurst - For Thor to Live, Thunder Hunter must die. For a thousand years, Thor's power has been inside Trygger. Can he finally defeat the Fallen Ones to give it back? Ms Medhurst is another new-to-me author. Loved this story! I enjoyed meeting our main characters, their quirks & personalities kept me interested in them, the plot was not only intriguing but it kept me guessing. I liked Ms Medhurst's use on the Norse mythology. I will be adding the rest of this series to my Amazon wish list. My Rating – 5 stars (I loved it) Book 10 – Sorceress Awakening (A Gargoyle and Sorceress Tale #1) by Lisa Blackwood - When Lillian finds herself facing off against vampires, help comes from an unlikely source—the stone gargoyle who has been sleeping in her garden. In a heartbeat, her ordinary life becomes far more complicated, and if her overprotective, shape-shifting guardian is to be believed, there’s an evil demi-goddess just waiting for the chance to enslave them both. Another new-to-me author; I really enjoyed this story. Our main female lead, Lillian, is intelligent, witty and has strength of character as well as a self sufficiency that means she’s no damsel in distress. I've only read one other paranormal romance featuring a gargoyle so my preconceived ideas were limited. I liked the world and the way the story was told. I also enjoyed the twists & turns the plot took us on. No dramatic cliffhangers but a good background story arc that leads nicely into the next book; the continuing relationship between Lillian and Gregory and the future battles they will face. My Rating - 4 stars (I really liked it) So, basically what I’m saying is... I think that this is a good box set. I have enjoyed having this as an ongoing back-up, to be able to pick up and read when I’ve had a bit of free time. What I’m thrilled about is that I have found a couple of new-to-me authors to check out and I’ve really loved reading 3 out of the 10 books while only a couple of stories were not to my taste. I think that is quite rare for a collection of this size and price. I think this box set of full novel sized books has got a nice assortment of different settings and sub-genres under the Bad Magic themed umbrella to suit most tastes.

    Some good some bad There are some good stories and bad ones. I realized I've already read a few books inside this set. One story left me hanging so I will have to read the rest of the series. One story in here got me buying the whole series when I read it by itself before. Beware, this might happen to you. Some good some bad There are some good stories and bad ones.

    While I liked the stories, I got this book some time ago from Barnes & Noble, and when I finally got around to reading it, there were only six books included! Where did the other four go? It made me angry, because some of the ones missing were the reason I got the set in the first place. Not a happy camper with this one.

    Well written books THE DJINN WARS: BOOK 1 - CHOSEN This is one of the most talented authors I've read. I loved this story and look forward to reading more. The main character is a believable young woman and the character development was great. The only problem I had with the book was the sexual content. I had to skip those sections. The main character is the oldest daughter of a family of four. One day, nearly everyone in the world dies of a seemingly random virus. She is immune to it.

The main character is the oldest daughter of a family of four. One day, nearly everyone in the world dies of a seemingly random virus. She is immune to it. She watches helplessly as her parents and brother die and turn into dust. With the help of a disembodied voice, she finds a new place to live. Then a stranger comes along with whom she becomes close. The book ends with an incredible cliff hanger, however, the questions that arise about what actually happened are satisfactorily answered before the close of the story.

    I give this collection of stories five stars. There is only one story in the collection which I did not care for, “Lost Wolf”. The main character , Victoria, was a whiney weak character. For an alpha female she was weak. Did nothing to find out who she was but always crying how she did not remember anything. Now Toby was a bit of a weak character as well. He did nothing to help Victoria regain her memory until after he was released. He was a bit whiney as well because he wanted Victoria but real I give this collection of stories five stars.

He was a bit whiney as well because he wanted Victoria but really wasn’t forceful enough emotionally or leadership like to move things along. I would read more by the other authors in this collection but nothing by Stacy Claflin, author of Lost Wolf.

    A Lot of Fun I will say a quick trigger warning about rape in the last novel as it’s mentioned quite a bit due to it being part of a backstory. That said, this was a fun collection. The novel about Loki I didn’t end up reading past the third chapter as it wasn’t really my thing, but the others were intriguing and a bit of a hoot. Overall, I liked it and will be keeping an eye out for other books from these authors.

    Compared to most compilations this one earns its five stars. All of the books here were top of the line and well worth reading. Only obnoxious and unrequired sex scenes in last book, however sloping the scenes still made this book outstanding as wee. Ms Pope did an excellent job putting this together.

    Superior Plotting Amazing characters amidst a steampunk version of Victorian London. A wonderful bunch of characters who live from a broken childhood into a young adulthood of new beginnings. The cast includes a kick-ass female lead, an airship pirate/Viscount and a hard-boiled London Enforcer. Humor, action and serial killer stopping abound. Get reading now!

    I read this box set back in May when I was on a three-week family trip. (The trip sounded good when we had the idea) These books provided the perfect escape. I enjoyed reading every single one. The characters and worlds were intense and awesomely created. My favorite was The Chosen because I’ve never read a story with the djinn. That being said, there was not one story that I did not like.
