Every once in a while I read something that is so unique that it makes me want to make everyone stop and read! This author is regularly pushing the bar (just an intended pun but you have to read the book to get it!) into unique. She blew me away with her last book and this start to a series makes me so happy! I love to read for the fun of it! This book is a definite, humorous, fresh read taking fantasy to the next level. It has everything you could imagine and much more than I ever could have imagined. Greek god in a speedo, witches with snark, pelican shapeshifters and at the center is Petra just trying to manage two bars and stay alive as Keeper.
This is a fun read that kept me wanting more! And luckily the next two books are also being released this summer. The perfect beach, backyard, comfy chair or just anywhere read!
Two bars, one magical and one human, lie in the exact same space. That should work. It’d better; I run those joints and we’re under attack.
I live a pretty weird life—as in gods in speedos, powerful witches with little patience for mere humans, and shifters whose vibrations make my guts quake. Plus, an oceanside bar and a magical book run my existence.
Beach life and eccentric are besties. The record picked me, Cleopatra O’Keefe, to be the next Keeper. I took over the book and started chronicling the intersection and occasional asininity of the human and magical worlds. That’s when eccentric plunked its butt on the deck next to mine and we careened into the world of funky oddities seasoned with occasional mayhem.
I’ve juggled the two worlds for almost twenty years, but my pier is under attack from the one entity feared by gods and magicals alike. Between slinging drinks, writing the history, and trying to keep the worlds in balance, I’m discovering that the Keeper’s job has way more depth than the magicals told me. Who’s lying? Which bits are truth?
I’m at a crossroads and it’s time to make a choice. Toe the line and live, or save the world and die?
