    I was so looking forward to this self published return to the world of Raine Benares but it just didn't uite live up to expectations It was decent but there was too much recapping going on and some of it wasn't necessary at all Do we really need to know the history of everything that happened in a room just because Raine walks into it? Especially when it's nothing exciting than a conference room? I think not On the plus side the gangs all back together initially for Mychael and Raine's wedding and later to save the world again from the latest yet familiar threat to the Seven Kingdoms We didn't get enough Tam though and I was hoping after that kiss that Imala planted on him in the last book that we'd get development on that front I understand though that the author is planning on a Tam centric book so hopefully that will cast illumination on a possible romantic HEA for our favorite goblinI thought this was to be the last Raine book but with that ending there has to be coming I'm hoping the next book will be back to classic Raine Benares fighting form ETA Checked the author's blog and it seems she is planning for at least two books to finish out this new story arc The next book will be from Tam's POV and the book after that will return to Raine's POV

    It's not the best time to read a book when you are cranky as hell but at least it took my minds if thingsfor a few seconds and then I was cranky againAnywayRaine should be with Taaaam Team Tam But no she is marrying Mychael always go with the nice elf Noo go with the goblin Alas those days are over but in my mind she in Tam will have goblin babies one day I am so bad ;But before they can get married she must meet the inlaws music of doomAnd they must meet her pirate family music of doomShe must deal with the after affects of the Sanghred music of doomSomeone is trying to kill everyone music of doomAnd something bigger is comingno music of doom just a note to the author to write books pretty pleaseIt was fun to see Raine and the gang again and seriously one book is so needed Just one

    Review courtesy of All Things Urban FantasyAfter ALL SPELLS BREAK LOOSE I fully expected never to read another Raine Benares book again Lucky for us Shearin decided to self publish in the series WEDDING BELLS MAGIC SPELLS follows almost immediately after the events in ALL SPELLS BREAK LOOSE and follows the same formula as other books in the series successfully I might addI'll be honest it has been a few years since I last visited Raine's world and my details on what happened the first six books were kind of sketchy Luckily Shearin did manage to fit in recaps of previous events and uick rundowns on who everybody was which worked out well for my failing memory They would also help a reader who didn't read the first six books be able to jump into this series Since this is mostly a brand new story arc I think WEDDING BELLS MAGIC SPELLS would be a good place for a new reader to start though I recommend reading the first books if you have the timeThat being said there was uite a bit of recap and not as much action as previous Shearin books I'm not sure if one was a result of the other but even though I felt Raine was in danger some of the time the danger didn't feel as immediate as it had in previous books in the series This book is clearly setting up a bigger conflict to come and ends on a bit of a cliffhanger One other disappointing thing was the small amount of time we got to spend with some of the characters like Raine's father and Tam gah do I love me some TamOverall WEDDING BELLS MAGIC SPELLS is a satisfying continuation of the Raine Benares series and I loved being able to jump back into that world With all the humor and wit that we're used to Raine continues to be a charismatic heroine who is easy to love and read about The plot twists and turns are unexpected and we get to see almost all the Raine's group of friends we've come to know over the course of the series I can't wait to see where Shearin takes the series nextSexual content Kissing

    This book has been a long time coming so in preparation I re read the entire series Confirming just how good it was Raine was a strong h Mychael a supportive sexy H Action was fast pace The world was addictive with all the power hungry mages stalking our wonderful group of good guysReading this 7th in the series though I felt under whelmed It lacked the spark of earlier books Especially in the first half of the book where the author provided us with a lot of stilted re capping For some reason the book just failed to flow Raine appeared to only have two modes afraid of her sister in law her mother in law her unexpected powers Or she was operating on instinct and saving the dayThis offering felt flat The characters felt forced The whole back story of her mother in law made me groan at how trite and ridiculous it sounded And this books entire reason for existing became clear it was laying the groundwork for the author to resume writing her much successful series So we tread water in this book as she lines up the might of the bad guys Ho humIt's sad to say but I kind of wish I'd never read this novel and just been happy with the ending provided in book 6

    This is a hard 4 star review It is only 4 stars because I enjoyed revisiting the characters And spending time with them I would have been happier if this had actually been just the HEA and finale instead of the set up for There are so many problems here First of all the recaps The recaps are many and freuent And often repetitive They are mostly unnecessary It is ok to remind us but please do not beat us over the head with what has happened previously Secondly I really did not like the whole premise This was to set up another world wide crisis Which is basically the same villains and the same problems just a tad bit different I would have been perfectly happy just to watch Tam get the goblin court in order Rather than going back to the same old same old I feel like a conclusion should be a conclusion This felt like it mostly made the previous books worthless So it annoyed meBUT I loved spending time with the characters I just wish we could have spent it being happy for Raine and Mychael If you don't love spending time with these characters don't waste your time here The plot and set up are irritating I gotta love some characters when I give a book 4 stars just because I loved spending time with them

    As a longtime fan of the Raine Benares series I was excited when I learned that Lisa Shearin was self publishing a seventh book Although All Spell Breaks Loose was a satisfying conclusion to the Saghred saga there seems like plenty of story left to tell about Raine and this world Sure enough Wedding Bells Magic Spells begins just before Raine’s wedding to Mychael At the same time the Isle of Mid is playing host to the euivalent of nuclear non proliferation peace talks among the major nations Oh and someone is trying to kill everyone and make it look like the goblins are doing it This is the perfect set up for some intense thrilling intrigue—but to be honest for most of the book I wasn’t feeling itThis is a difficult review just because the amount of time that has passed since I last read this series makes it hard for me to trust how much of this is the book’s influence and how much is just the way I’ve changed since I read All Spell Breaks Loose While I’ve always delivered honest critiues of this series in the past I’ve also always genuinely enjoyed every single book despite any bumps or flaws Wedding Bells Magic Spells is different in that it’s the first Raine Benares book I didn’t enjoy that much Whereas previous books had great pacing and fantastical action scenes this book largely feels like a series of recapsThe story opens with a great deal of exposition on Raine’s background and in particular what happened at the end of the last book Fair enough I thought—there was a lengthy gap between the two books so much so that even regular readers like me would have trouble recalling the details So I gave that one a free pass But then it happens again And again And before you know it the book feels like “Raine explains” than “Raine does” There is so much telling than showing—or to be accurate Shearin shows and tells which might be even annoying A character can barely sneeze without Raine analyzing the action then explaining how it relates to that character’s culture or position or what happened three books ago One reason I love series with rich backgrounds and mythologies is because longtime readers will understand callbacks and allusions that newcomers just won’t We don’t need every allusion explained to us unless it is crucial to understanding the present situationShearin clearly has a very complex world or multiverse like thought out here too Previous books featured travels to Hell and The SPI Files and this book have both confirmed that Shearin’s two series take place within a larger multiverse Wedding Bells Magic Spells also feature portals to another world being used as a staging ground by extradimensional invaders I love all of this so much Firstly there is so much happening in this series than the Saghred and it’s clear that there is plenty story left to tell about Raine Tam Mychael et al Secondly unlike her penchant for explaining what happened previously Shearin is happy not to delve too deeply into how Raine’s world or magic works As a result we’ve had to wait seven books to see things like portals to other worlds and extradimensional invaders—but it’s obvious that Shearin has been planning these plot points for a while nowNow objectively a lot happens in this book In addition to the much hyped wedding there are assassination attempts to foil shapeshifters monsters infesting the Void used for mirror travel and all sorts of mysteries and shenanigans that Raine must deal with during the peace talks It should make for an intense story So I was just so surprised that I dawdled with this short book The heavy exposition really breaks the pacing and despite all these events it feels overwhelmingly as if Raine doesn’t do much at allI did enjoy getting to meet some of the new characters particularly Mychael’s parents Raine’s mother in law is great during the shapeshifter scene and I loved their bonding afterwards That being said it might have been nice if not everyone had fallen head over heels for Raine Shearin has a great flare for the dramatic but she can also write really nuanced characters—Tam and his addiction to dark magic is a prime example Unfortunately that kind of nuance and depth seemed to be missing from most of the characters who seemed to fall into fairly stock descriptionsWhile it has its moments Wedding Bells Magic Spells might be my least favourite Raine Benares book yet Diehard fans will love the ending and its resolution of what has been—for us if not for Raine and Mychael—such a long arc That alone is definitely worth reading this book which is not so much bad as it is just disappointingly banal The seuel is supposedly from Tam’s point of view and I’m hopeful this will inject some freshness into the series—I’m sad to say goodbye to Raine even temporarily but it might be interesting to see her through someone else’s eyesMy reviews of the Raine Benares series← All Spell Breaks Loose

    It's been awhile since I read this series so I appreciated the reminders of the different characters and previous major events Unfortunately the recapping ended up being way too detailed and repetitive The pace slowed to a crawl because every person was given a backstory and even rooms had detailed descriptions of everything that had happened in that place from the first six books It felt like not much actually happened throughout the book For those worried by the blurb as I was fear not The horrible mother in law situation strongly emphasized in the blurb is barely a concern in the book and is resolved as expected Overall I'm hoping now that the new story arc has been set up the subseuent books will be action packed and like the previous Raine books fingers crossed

    Still love this series Love the characters love the story love love love More pleaseRe read Sept 2018I really do adore this series And I hope there's coming with Raine I know there is a Raine Benares World story with Tam and Phaelan but I've dragged my heels on it because TBH with no Raine I'm not particularly interested because we're left in a hell of a place with a pending invasion
