    Description

    Rule one: Don't look at the demon.

    When I arrived at my uncle's house, I expected my relatives to be like me - outcast sorcerers who don't practice magic. I was right about the sorcery, but wrong about everything else. 

    Rule two: Don't listen to the demon.

    My uncle chose a far deadlier power. He calls creatures of darkness into our world, binds them into service contracts, and sells them to the highest bidder. And I'm supposed to act like I don't know how illegal and dangerous it is. 

    Rule three: Don't talk to the demon.

    All I had to do was keep my nose out of it. Pretend I didn't find the summoning circle in the basement. Pretend I didn't notice the shadowy being trapped inside it. Pretend I didn't break the rules. But I did, and now it's too late. 

    Make sure to check out the companion series, The Guild Codex: Spellbound, available now, and The Guild Codex: Warped, coauthored by Rob Jacobsen.

    Simply Fun!

    Although she has several series, I have only been reading The Guild Codex series by Annette Marie. I must say the woman knows how to write a good fun adventure.

    Young Adult Urban Fantasy in a normal world with a twist. This story stars a new character and unfolds the events that led to her entering the Crow and Hammer's guild hall at the end of Demon Magic and a Martini. From this point onward, I see and interesting weaving beginning.

    This volume reads well as a swift introduction to the World and can be read independently. However, I Highly recommend going to the beginning found in Three Mages and a Margarita: Guild Codex: Spellbound, Vol 1 as soon as possible afterward :-) I am eating this series up like a delectable buffet of homemade cookies.

    Not my cup of tea

    Got as far as chapter 16 before i had to call it a day. Can't stand the helpless heroine routine and the stupid teenager walking into a bad neighbourhood all hapless and the "save me!" routine.... Having fainting fits because someone shouts at you...... Like i said, not my cup of tea

    Wonderful

    I think I may like this series even more than the Spellbound books! Annette Marie has a way of writing endearing female leads that you find yourself rooting for. I don't understand the reviewers that found Robin too naive or helpless - that was part of her charm! I was only too happy to follow this character with real flaws, and watch her slowly start to grow into herself. And I very much enjoyed the developing relationship between her and the demon. The back and forth between the two was extremely entertaining.
    Marie's writing is witty and fun and fast-paced, and includes the perfect amount of emotional drama and just a tease of simmering romantic tension. To top it off, the narrator was fantastic. Five stars all around, and I don't give that lightly!

    Wow!

    I’m not sure I can put into words just how freaking awesome this story was! Haha. This was not what I had been expecting. Robin this sweet, tiny slip of a girl is a total bad mamajama!! The innocence she brings to the table makes you instantly like her. Her family, if that’s what you could call these despicable people are horrible to her, try to give her to a demon but something back fires... and the demon is now bound to her. Yet, he’s a wild card she’s not really ready for.

    The battle with herself, the demon and the outside world really is a lot to take on. Her game of cat and mouse almost ends up with her being taken over. Her demon however, earns his money where he can. The biggest hurdle is to keep the secret she’s carrying around just that, a secret. She’s now part of the Crow And Hammer which means... not only is her secret in jeopardy so is someone else’s.

    I can’t wait for more of this series!

    It’s ok

    The main character is a little bit annoying but overall it’s a good story a bit slow in the beginning but it picks up later on.

    Love it!

    So...I have read all of the Spellbound series up to this point and figured I would give this offshoot a try. We met Robin in "Demon Magic and a Martini" , so let's see what she is all about. After only a few chapters, I could not put it down. Robin is SO different that Tori! She is shy and introvert and would rather have her head inside of a book (I can relate!). While she may hate confrontations and has to work herself to try to stand her ground, you can tell there is strength under there somewhere.
    So how does a shy, non-confrontational bookworm become a demon contractor? Well, that's the story now, isn't it!

    And Zylas? I love this demon and his snarky attitude! And I truly enjoy the voice that narrator gave him. Makes it very easy to picture him in your head!

    I like how this series is now mingled with Spellbound. You get to see how situations are viewed from different angles

    Nice job !

    Enjoyable

    I love Annette Marie's writing style. Her words flow, not too many, not too little, words not repeated. She is my favorite Urban Fantasy Writer.

    This book delves more into the demon world. It matches up with her other series, The Guild Codex.

    The reading and voices are well done.

    I'm glade to be able to clean my house while listening, and sit down with the kindle and pick up where I left off.

    If you like Urban Fantasy, I highly recommend reading Annette Marie. (Already have a co-worker addicted to her books.)

    This is it

    Your new favorite series. I promise! I put off reading these for SO long because I just didn’t feel convinced it wouldn’t be hokey. Trust me, it’s amazing. And the sister series (which technically starts first) is a super close second for me. All this author’s series are excellent, so give it shot!

    Stick with it

    This book starts off kind of slow. I was disappointed at first but I stuck with it and it definitely got better.

    I didn't like it

    I really enjoy the Spellbound series, but I couldn't get into this one. I won't be getting the next book in this series. As always, Cris Dukehart did a great job as narrator.

    getting better and better, need to hear the next

    Die meisten amerikanischen Sprecher gefallen mir nicht, aber dieser war ganz okay und passte zur Protagonistin.
    Keine große, aber dafür detaillierte Welt.
    Das Tempo gefiel mir auch sehr gut, eines der wenigen Fantasy Bücher, die ich neu fand, das einem nicht alles doppelt erklärt.
    Anfangs eine leicht nervige Naivität des Hauptcharakters, die sich aber schnell auswächst.
    Guter Geschichtsaufbau, bin gespannt auf den zweiten Teil.

    Great story, not so great audio quality

    I don't know if it's my gears fault but there were some words missing and I think at one point even a whole sentence.
    But I really like the story and will buy the books.

    Hard to stop listening

    Hard to stop listening. I like the humor. The narrators way to speak as the demon and the demon itself is very entertaining..

    I really enjoyed it

    While the story is a little cheesy and sometimes too predictable, it is also a lot of fun. The characters are interesting and entertaining. The story is written very well. And I loved the world building. Great atmosphere.

    The reader does a great job, too.

    Amazing

    I finished this in one day. It was so good i couldn't stop to listen. The story is captivating and the characters work really well together. They are as unsure and as faulty as real people are, which made me connect to them very well. I loved every second of this book and can't wait for the rest of the series.

    Great Spin-Off!

    Like the Guild Codex Series this spin-off about Robin, the demon contractor is awesome fast-paced-urban fantasy. I listened to it almost in one go, unable to take a break from the suspense the author creates brilliantly. The speaker is very good and her voice, though it's not deep, is pleasant to listen to.

    I like the worldbuilding and humor very much and it is a nice addition to the guild codex books.
