Two Witches and a Whiskey Book Review
When the MPD shows up for a surprise investigation at The Crow and Hammer, Tori is snuck out the back door and told to lay low. Faced with the possibility her time at the guild has come to an end, Tori throws back a few shots of whiskey and tries to avoid thinking about it. Just as she’s reaching a nice level of buzz, two witches show up at her door. Fey have begun to go missing, and they believe dark magic users are enslaving them. The witches ask for help from The Crow and Hammer, and Tori unknowingly signs up the guild for the investigation.
With the threat of being cast out fresh in her mind, Tori begins to overthink and spread doubt over every relationship she’s formed with the guild members. The only comparison she has are the human coworkers turned friends who ultimately dumped her when she left a job. And while she mulls over the what-ifs, readers will watch as Tori uncovers the fact she enjoys being part of the magical community. It is by no means safe, but she’s found a kinship among the guild members. It’s disheartening to see how quickly Tori believes everyone will abandon her despite reassurances.
But when the witches show up at her door, Tori has to explain how she somehow involved the guild with the fey disappearances. And true to the nature of the series, Tori ends up right in the middle of it all. As Tori and the boys take on the investigation, things go sideways pretty quickly. And despite best efforts, Tori ends up in the dark arts casting the guild was sent to interrupt. Choosing between running away, or letting a dark magic guild enslave a powerful fey, Tori opts to save the fey. And unknowingly causes herself a world of magical trouble.
With the MPD already sniffing around, Tori’s playing with fire. But to save herself from the repercussion magic is ready to unleash on her, she has to dive deeper into the mythic community. And along the way, she’s going to uncover dark secrets about those she calls friends. Her relationships will be put to the test as the revelations snowball into all aspects of her life. Tempers will run high and when boundaries are crossed, Tori won’t be able to keep all the pieces together.
Two Witches and a Whiskey is another fun installment of The Guild Codex. It’s beginning to dive into the deeper aspects of Tori’s life while still maintaining a steady dose of magical mayhem. Each book uncovers another aspect of the mythic community, immersing readers in a world that is sure to keep entertaining them.
