Review: Con & Conjure

Con & Conjure (Raine Benares #5)Con & Conjure by Lisa Shearin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Lisa Shearin didn’t disappoint with the 5th book of the series. I enjoyed it just as much as the previous books, if not more. I loved meeting Phaelan’s brother. And I was really liking Rache Kai. Could there be more romantic entanglement drama in the future? I LOVE Mychael, but a little tension to keep him on his feet is always good. And I love Vegard too. It’s always good to hear his quips and interjections. The character development has something for everyone.

The series, and this book, are just plain enjoyable and lots of fun. Raine is a fantastic, swearing, drinking, heroine with attitude and I love her. The book set us up very neatly for the 6th book, but it also didn’t leave me hanging and feeling like I had no closure. I can’t wait to see the trouble unfold in All Spell Breaks Loose.

Meghan is an environmental scientist by trade but an artist at heart. She loves all things geeky/nerdy and is frequently found with less geeky friends rolling their eyes at her. She often spouts all kinds of pop culture trivia and nonsense stemming from her avid love of movies, music, art, and books. If not curled up with a book (she reads at least one a week) or comic, she can be found painting with something on a screen to distract her. She wishes she was as cool as Veronica Mars or as Kate Daniels. Besides blogging about comics here you can also find her exploring around twitter, instagram, tumblr, pinterest, goodreads, and trying to keep up appearances on her own blog.
