Audiobook Review - The Mage of Monrovia by Terry Spear @TerrySpear (The Magic of Inherian #2)

The Mage of Monrovia
The Magic of Inherian #2
by Terry Spear

Goodreads blurb:  Mexia has already done much more than most school- trained mages when she and her companions had gone in search of the scepter of salvation. But now one of the apprentices of the evil wizard they had destroyed, has stolen his spell book and plans to take up where he had left off, and she has to try and stop him.

Mexia believes the only way for her to defeat the mage is to become school trained like he was with the eventual goal of becoming a high wizard--the first of her kind in Inherian. But the current headmaster denies her entrance because she's a woman. Though if she can get the former headmaster's recommendation, she may attend.

And that's the beginning of the trouble.

First, there's the wizard.
Then, the immovable headmaster.
And then, the circle of misfortunes.
It all goes downhill from there...

About the Author:  Love, love, love romance, the paranormal, hunky Highlanders with their delicious brogue and hot kilts, so Terry Spear writes about those hunky Highlanders both in medieval times and as wolves in contemporary times. Jaguar shifters too! And young adult urban fantasy. And romantic suspense.

She grew up reading mystery, adventure, mythologies from around the world, ghost stories, the paranormal, fell in love with Dracula and Wolfman, and felt they needed loving too. Everyone should have someone to love. Which means her stories always have a HEA.

USA Today Bestseller residing in Central Texas from Sacramento, California who creates award-winning teddy bears too!

My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!!

***Received a code from the author to listen to and review the audio version of the book

The cover is breath-taking.  I love it!!  It feels old world, the dress is stunning and overall it feels magical :)

I really love this series.  This book’s focus is more on Mexia, but all of the characters that I loved from book 1 are here with the exception of Princess Talamaya’s betroved.  Mexia is strong and fierce and won’t back down or be held against her own will.  I love how smart and resourceful she is to get out of all the trouble that finds her.  There are even a few new characters.  Though I think I would slapped Mexia’s prince quite a few times throughout the story.  He redeems himself in the end at least in my eyes :)

My son loved all the adventure and our favorite gruff dwarf.  We both loved that it was the same fabulous narrator :)  She really brings all of the characters to life for us.  Of course, it all ended way to quickly, and book 3 isn’t out yet.  I do hope we don’t have to wait long to see what happens next to the group. 

I highly recommend this series to anyone who loves strong female characters who help any they meet especially if you love Terry Spear already :)

See my review of Scepter of Salvation (Book 1)!!!

Interested in reading???
