Bewitched & Betrayed (Raine Benares Book 04)
by Lisa Shearin


My name is Raine Benares. I’m a seeker. I find lost things and missing people ‘ usually alive. Finding the specters of six evil mages who escaped the Saghred, a soul-eating stone of unlimited power, was easy. Stopping them before they unleash Hell on earth just may be the death of me.

Being bonded to the Saghred wasn’t my idea ‘ neither is hunting down its escapees. Especially not when one of them is also hunting me. He’s regenerating his body by taking the lives of powerful victims, along with their memories, knowledge, and most important of all, their magic. The dark mage wants control of the Saghred, and if he gets it, he’ll become an evil demigod whom no one can stop. The only thing in his way is me.

One of us doesn’t stand a ghost of a chance.

Review:In the 4th book of the Raine Benares series Raine is searching for the six souls of evil mages that had escaped from the the Saghred, (a soul-eating stone) in the previous book in the series.

The plot in the book is quite fast paced and it is a different take on a world with Elves and Goblins. Usually most of the books that feature Elves portray them as a long lived peaceful race and Goblins as an evil race. In this case both races are shown to have their plus points and their negative points.

The humor in the book is mostly dry and slightly sarcastic which is why I loved it. The characters are well defined and the back story is given to as as the current book goes along so you don’t spend three chapters learning what happened in the previous books but also gave enough information that the reader doesn’t need to refer to the previous books for information.

Final Recommendation: A good read.
