The thrilling continuation of the Magical Mayhem trilogy by USA Today Bestselling author K.F. Breene!
After narrowly surviving my debut into the magical world, I made a promise to myself: no more hiding in broom closets.
But with the Mages’ Guild reorganizing faster than anyone thought possible, and naming me as their number one target, that promise seems a little far-fetched. Especially since my training with Callie and Dizzy, the highly experienced dual-mage pair, goes off like a cake in a cannon.
Left to find someone that can fill the role, it isn’t until a formal dinner party goes horribly wrong that I find the best (and worst) solution imaginable: Reagan Somerset, the leather-clad crazy woman who busted into my broom closet sanctuary in the first place.
Through an off-kilter teaching style and many punches in the face, I learn my true potential.
But with her happier busting heads and kicking in doors than staying put with a pupil in hiding, it isn’t long before the world comes crashing down. The Guild has found me, and they intend to take me alive.
My ARC Review:
Another stupendous read by K.F. Breene in this follow up to the Natural Witch in the Magical Mayhem series!!
Penny has been left in the capable hands of Callie & Dizzy, a dual pair of mages, trying to train Penny the way they have been taught. But things don’t go too well, their type of training doesn’t seem right for Penny, since Emery left she has never found that perfect balance again, so Darius steps in and decides he will train her, by putting her in very real danger from newbie vampires and leaving her to defend herself!! A massive magical fight, fireworks, lots and lots of panic and running by Penny thus ensues. Penny ends up engaging an ancient vampire after she is roused from her rest by Penny’s magic, she is so formidable that Darius and the rest of his vampire clan have to step in and defend Penny, with many casualties on their side!
So Penny ends up training and living with Reagan, fighting and learning to use her magic against Reagan’s unique abilities. Emery returns on the scene after a premonition of Penny being hurt, and can’t stay away, even though he feels he is not good enough for her. But as soon as he arrives, Penny’s and Emery’s magic combine and balance themselves out completely again, blissfully in harmony. They end up training together as the Mages are moving en-mass in an attempt to get to the Natural pair. Reagan, Emery and Penny end up pulling together fighting for their life in a massive battle against the Mages Guild.
A brilliant read, full of magic, mayhem and laugh out loud moments. This book has that perfect blend of everything, with its characters from her Fire and Ice Trilogy, it really does make an utterly compelling reading. Fantastic main characters, vampires, shifters, witches and mages with a side order of beautiful chemistry and sass in abundance, its an epic fantasy PNR read that I just couldn’t put down – I can’t wait for the final book in this series.
A wonderful 5 star read, one I can’t recommend highly enough.

The explosive new addition to the DDVN World (Fire and Ice Series) by USA Today Bestselling author K.F. Breene!
Something has always been missing from my life. A hole that I could never seem to fill.
When I accidentally turn a coven of witches into nightmares, I find out what that something is.
And it turns out, I have a crap load of it.
As a latent power awakens deep inside of me, I’m exposed to one of the most powerful and corrupt organizations in the magical world—the Mages’ Guild.
Barely knowing a spell from a few swear words and luck, I won’t be able to evade them alone.
And that’s when I meet him.
The Rogue Natural. The best and most feared mage in the world.
He’s dangerous, mysterious, and has a vendetta of his own. He is now the only thing between me and magical enslavement.
My ARC Review:
This is book 1 in a new series from K.F. Breene, which is a spin off from her Fire & Ice Trilogy, which although it can be read on its own, I highly recommend you read these first, its a fantastic series that I didn’t want to end, so I was over the moon to learn about this spin-off, and let me tell you, it is fabulous!!!
We first came across Penny in the Fire & Ice Trilogy, she was the girl with innate natural magical ability, but not really ready to face and become part of the magical world – well this is her story!
Penny is an unusual character, quite geeky, quirky and naive. She knows she is different from an ordinary girl, knows that something is missing in her life, and has the gift of a ‘third eye’ or is sensitive to certain things. She has been cloistered away by her overbearing and overprotective mum, is not allowed to swear and basically lives in her mums pocket! After meeting a stranger who she has the weirdest reaction to, she discovers that magic is real, and that she has a shitload of it, that just comes out in the most unusual of ways.
Emery is a natural also, but is on a vendetta to avenge his brother murdered by the Mages Guild. He comes across Penny at a fair, and then again she appears in the midst of a magical fight, saving him with her own magic then trying to run him down in her car!!
They end up working together, him trying to teach her, she trying to learn how to control herself. They are like yin and yang, opposites that fit together so perfectly well, their magic balances each other.
Its a great read and a great storyline, a fantastic adventure full of magic, discovery, learning and acceptance. Penny is a wonderful character, full on innocence and beauty, yet so full of power, determined to help and learn her magic, her attraction to Emery is instant and I love how their relationship grows. Emery has a darker side to him after his brother was murdered, yet the peace he feels with Penny balances him completely, but he is scared to give in to his feelings and thinks he is not worthy of her. I loved their dynamics, their banter and their chemistry. Penny’s unique way of swearing had me laughing out loud!!
Great to see other characters from the Fire & Ice Trilogy in here also, particularly Darius who plays a major part along with his vampire cronies!!
A brilliant and magical 5 star read!!
