Dating a demon, defeating evil, running a tiki bar: Arcadia Bell is a great occult mage in many respects. But then there's the challenge of her boyfriend's precocious teenage son…
Arcadia "Cady" Bell may have saved the Hellfire Club's children from a local bogeyman, but she and her Earthbound demon boyfriend, Lon Butler, now face a more disturbing problem: his teenage son’s new demonic abilities. Jupe Butler can persuade you to do anything—or so he thinks. To test the limits of his newfound power, Cady invites the co-owner of Tambuku Tiki Lounge to be the teen's guinea pig during an afternoon boat cruise. But when an angry storm whips the Pacific into a frenzy and Jupe puts them all in serious danger, will Cady's magick trump a teenager's excess confidence?
In the third book in this beloved and "riveting" (Romantic Times) urban fantasy series, demon-friendly tiki bar owner Arcadia Bell discovers more about her own evolving, and possibly destructive, magical abilities when her bar is the target of a demonic crime wave.
Demons sure know how to kill a girl's buzz.
Renegade mage and bartender Arcadia Bell has had a rough year, but now the door to her already unstable world is becoming completely unhinged. When a citywide crime wave erupts, Cady's demon-friendly tiki bar is robbed by Earthbounds wielding surreal demonic abilities that just flat-out shouldn't exist. With the help of her devilishly delicious boyfriend, Lon Butler, Cady sets out to find the people who wronged her—but her targets aren't the only ones experiencing unnatural metamorphoses. Can Cady track down the monsters responsible before the monster inside her destroys everything—and everyone—she loves? If she survives this adventure, one thing is certain: it's last call for life as she knows it.
The fourth and final installment of a "riveting" (RT Book reviews) urban fantasy series about a renegade mage and the demons who love her.
Complicated does not begin to describe Arcadia Bell's life right now: unnatural magical power, another brush with death, and a murderous mother who's not only overbearing but determined to take permanent possession of Cady's body.
Forced to delve deep into the mystery surrounding her own birth, Cady must uncover which evil spell her parents cast during her conception…and how to reverse it. Fast.
As she and her lover Lon embark on a dangerous journey through her magical past, Lon's teenage son Jupe sneaks off for his own investigation. Each family secret they uncover is darker than the last, and Cady, who has worn many identities—Moonchild, mage, fugitive—is about to add one more to the list.
I absolutely loved reading these books! I loved the first two books, and these ones were just as great, and I enjoyed it so much! I knew going in that there was only 4 books, 5 stories, in this series, and yeah, I'm glad that I decided to read these books in this order-the ending of Shadows was evil!
Tempest was really awesome, working with Jupe with his knack, and then things going wrong, yeah, just so great to read! I loved all the twists and turns, because things weren't what they seemed, and yeah, I just loved how it all worked out!
Shadows, yeah, that just kinda broke me! There was the whole being basically a slave to the Hellfire group because they knew her past. Which was awful! But she won there in the end, though it hurt! And the pregnancy! I kinda guessed that, and yeah, I was right!
Then Dark happened, and I knew it was right, but yeah, it hurt a bit, though it was a bit funny, because the wiped memories of the pregnancy also took their romantic relationship, so it was kinda like they were starting over! So yeah, that was great!
This series was so fantastic, and I just enjoyed it so much, and that ending was just plain awesome and I loved it!
