    One thought on “Magic Lost, Trouble Found”

    1. This series seems to be most often described as regular fantasy with a decidedly urban fantasy heroine, complete with charming at times self deprecating sense of humor I would agree with this assessment Raine s internal dialogue is very much in keeping with urban fantasy trends She ll be the first one to tell you, she s one part disreputable imp, two parts defender of all that is good And she can handle anything that comes her way.And the excellent part is all kinds of heinousness comes her way [...]

    2. I love this book so much I had so much fun reading it, the characters are lovely and humorous and the plotting is quick and satisfying I can t say enough good things about this, and I m eagerly waiting for the sequel

    3. 3.5 stars.A fun formulaic read and formulaic in a positive and comfy way Really enjoyed the fantasy world of elves, goblins, pixies, humans Magic and spellsongs, start of a love triangle etc Main character with the feisty attitude of urban fantasy without the urban bit Probably won t be rushing to the next one in the series, but I m pretty sure I will read it eventually when I m in need of something entertaining, light and fast paced.

    4. Well I was pleasantly surprised If you ve checked back on my profile often you may have noticed that this book has been on my currently reading shelf for a long time Unfortunately sort of I own the book So, it was continuously having to be put aside so I could read library books that had to be finished and returned.The book was one I d purchased from my favorite used books store on a recommendation but I d left it on my shelf a long time Let s face it The cover sports an attractive, red blonde E [...]

    5. Edit 2016 I m currently re reading this and have to say this series got soooo good It was worth learning all those names I was grumbling about 5 years ago 2011 review This book was good However, it was extremely difficult to get into This was actually my second attempt at reading it the first time I gave up halfway through in frustration The reason for my annoyance at the time was that I just couldn t get a grasp on who each character was because they ve all got such ridiculously long and hard t [...]

    6. I found myself conflicted by this book There are parts of this novel that I loved, parts that made me read and read because I couldn t put it down, and parts that popped me out of the story and had me saying Oh, come on The novel is written in a first person chatty style reminiscent of chick lit It s not quite as dark and heavy as the urban fantasy I ve read but it also has a bit of that kind of modern thief magician thing kinda a perky female Harry Dresden without so much angst Oh, Raine s got [...]

    7. He said Let s go into the office She said I don t trust you, let s stay out here 5 minutes later, nothing has changed but He said Let s go into the office She said OK Raine finds herself in possession of a magical amulet It was stolen from a powerful necromancer quoted from the synopsis and that s about the last you ll hear of him Everyone wants the amulet because it apparently acts as something like a compass will lead the bearer to a dark magical rock that promises great power Luckily there is [...]

    8. Okay, let s get one thing straight this is not the book series to reach for if you want something deep and thought provoking That s not its purpose, and there s nothing wrong with that, but I thought we should be clear before moving on.What this book is is fun Really fun, in a classic fantasy tropes written so solidly you don t care they re tropes kind of way Really, the setup here is fairly standard elves, humans, goblins everyone s hot and compatible and there s an ancient species rivalry and [...]

    9. A charming introduction to a series that is new for me and which I will definitely read to the end I love Lisa Shearin s SPI Files and picked up the first three books of this series when I found them in my favourite used book store A good impulse, that.While not without its flaws, I found this to be an excellent distraction from the boredom of sitting most of a day in an airport in Santiago, Chile One flight got in at mid day and the next didn t leave until after 10 p.m Distraction was definitel [...]

    10. It s been a long time since I read a book that was straight fantasy I ve heard so many good things about this book and wasn t disappointed Raine, the main character, is an elf with average magical abilities who s current job is as a seeker Meaning, she finds things that were stolen or lost In Magic Lost, Trouble Found Raine herself stumbles upon something that was once lost and is sought after by some very bad people There is a race of goblins in this book, with some that are good and some that [...]

    11. I don t know why I didn t like this book It has everything I seek in good read Writing was decent and understandable for me The world building was fine too I like Raine, she was quite pleasant character There are romance and love triangle in the book But apparently this wasn t enough It just didn t hook me up.I read all this great review, and the book rating is really high So I just hoped, that it will be better soon, I just need to read another page, another chapter On page 195 it has totally 2 [...]

    12. The word for Lisa Shearin s new fantasy series is delightful Raine Benares characterization presents a magical world through the eyes of a down to earth, capable woman The passing way in which she remarks, Oh, by the way I ve got an amulet that links me to a stone known as the Soul Thief and want it gone is a typical example of the tongue in cheek tone of Shearin s writing a tone that suits this story.The way the action progresses, it is hard to imagine that so much can happen in so short a time [...]

    13. I liked this book.I didn t think I would, and that was because I did indeed fall into the trap of judging a book by its cover which I seriously dislike, and the font makes me think it s a comedy a la Discworld, from which I run screaming not Discworld so much but comedic fantasy in general.In any case I was pleasantly surprised.The worldbuilding is really good anyone who can paint a picture so vividly and with so many layers in the readers head in such short a time earns my admiration given I wr [...]

    14. Raine Benares is a Seeker with enough magic to get her by and a close family of smugglers and thieves who taught her every trick they knew However, that all changes when she finds herself in possession of an amulet, he amulet doesn t look all that impressiveexcept she now has a psychotic goblin shaman chasing her, as well as an exiled Prince and a Paladin Raine s sudden popularity has puts her and her family in mortal danger she may have got herself in far trouble than her street smarts and mag [...]

    15. edited 01 30 14Raine Benares has seen her fair share of trouble As a member of a cheerfully amoral elven crime family, she s seen quite a few dubious deals As a Seeker a mix of sorceress and private eye she s gotten into than her fair share of tense situations But when her attempt to protect a friend from his own stupidity ends with Raine in possession and maybe possessed by a powerful magical artefact, she knows her problems have only just started All too soon, she s on the run from not one bu [...]

    16. An excellent first novel to a new series I thought it was great As a first book, you meet the characters all of them The ones to adore, the ones to hate Raine is an excellent female character Brave, strong, does what she has too despite how she feels about doing it I can t wait to see what she gets herself into next.The secondary characters all tie in with her in some way, and I like the diversity of them, whether friend, family, or a really hot guy And I can t wait to read about them I loved t [...]

    17. Love this series Action, intrigue, an epic soul sucking rock and yet there is snark, skulduggery, cloak and dagger and humor Strong INTELLIGENT female lead that isn t TSTL or whiny Highly recommended The author has also decided to make her goblins hot seductive that may may not eat you.

Synopsis A girl with attitude An all powerful amulet.This could only mean trouble.My name is Raine Benares I m a seeker The people who hire me are usually happy when I find things But some things are better left unfound Raine is a sorceress of moderate powers, from an extended family of smugglers and thieves With a mix of street smarts and magic spells, she can usually take care of herself But when her friend Quentin, a not quite reformed thief, steals an amulet from the home of a powerful necro [...]

    19. I am going to be honest, I am not sure I should even be writing a review for this since I only got 70 pages into the bookbut I guess that says something about the book, right I was excited to read this book it was supposed to be a fantasy with an urban fantasy flavor to it and sounded right up my alleywell it wasn t.The book drops you right into the middle of the action, but I just couldn t get into it The action scenes weren t all that well done The characters did not interest me in the least R [...]

    20. You may also read my review here mybookishways 2011 04 Magic Lost, Trouble found starts off with a bang, and gets the action going straightaway Raine is providing discreet backup for her friend and sometimes ex thief Quentin, when she finds herself in the middle of a fight to the death with a bunch of very angry goblins These aren t your momma s goblins, though I m relatively new to fantasy fantasy, as opposed to urban fantasy, and in my rather limited fantasy experience, goblins are squat and u [...]

    21. A very solid book, Magic Lost, Trouble Found has a great cast of characters, and the main character, Raine, is especially a good heroine Through a series of unfortunate events, Raine finds herself as the bearer of an amulet of untold power Too bad for her that two different sides of a goblin conflict want it, not to mention the Guardians magic warriors , and she literally can t take the amulet off Not without possibly killing herself She s not alone though, there s her family a bunch of lovable [...]

    22. Reviewed by Whitney Shooting Stars ReviewsRaine Benares is a seeker, she finds missing things for people And when her friend partner ends up going back to the dark side of things she decides to get involved However, she never expected it to go so far, and for her to end up finding out about herself she never knew, and never really wanted to know This book brings in a large amount of suspense, action, and a hint of romance, with a kick ass heroine who cares about her friends then anything else [...]

    23. Can I tell you how much I enjoy being on Twitter I likely would have never picked up this book if I hadn t seen kmont, angiebookgirl and janicu debating between the two hotties in this series I haven t read a lot of fantasy and what I have read has been mostly YA It always seems to take me a little longer to get into fantasy because of the world building and in this book s case, the names They had some weirdo names However, it didn t take me long before I was sucked into the story.There wasn t m [...]

    24. I don t usually comment on something I am reading until I am finished This is an unusual situation I want to say, at 30% into reading this, that I am enjoying the world building, and especially the main character, quite a bit Raine Benares is delightful She is practical, honest, self critical without being ridiculous about it, and DOESN T THINK ABOUT SEX ALL THE TIME There, I have probably managed to discourage many of you from reading this She has an interesting cast of supporting characters wh [...]

    25. A good solid first effort I must say I never thought I d see a goblin characterized as good looking, but Shearin has done so in a most yummy way Our heroine is an elven seeker a person who uses magic to find lost things, and she goes to help a reformed thief friend who has decided to steal a powerful artifact.Hijinks ensue, and she must go up against the goblin king and his shaman In doing so, she gets help from her sexy goblin friend and a hot elven paladin A nice action packed fantasy with a h [...]

    26. I found it quite hard to get into this, but about halfway through it picked up a bit The main character, Raine Benares, reminds me a little of Anita Blake the creation of Laurell K Hamilton a wise cracking, brave, protective and independent woman However, Raine has a tendency to wise crack a little too much, and she finds the dangerous goblins beautiful The description of the goblins made me instantly think of vampires, with the long canines and deadly grace On the whole, it was slow starting an [...]

    27. 3.5 stars I did this in audio and really enjoyed the story and the reader I think that the people surrounding Fae seeker Rayne in this fantasy story are a big plus I like that she is from a family of rogues, pirates and thieves I also like that she is quick thinking and capable with a blade It will be interesting to see how the magical fallout from this book affect things as in the next book.

    28. I am Raine Banares, I m a seeker I find things Fate sure does have a warped sense of humor Now I m what the bad guys are trying to find Most people are glad when they find what they re looking for Sometimes they re sorry they asked If you ask me, folks should be careful what they ask for I cinched the buckle on my brace of throwing knives Somethings are better left unfound Like me Where to begin Raine Banares is a seeker and a sorceress She doesn t have much power one night while watching her, [...]

    29. I started out delighted with this book In fact I wondered why I hadn t heard of this series before, I was enjoying it so much Than things slowed down some, for three basic reasons.First, this is one of those fantasies where everyone and everything has a weirdly spelled name Aeren, Mychael, Mal Salin, Magh Sceadu, I keep pronounce it Mag Skidoo, which doesn t sound scary at all , and Primaru Nathrach who for some reason is also called Tam All of these weird names slow me down as a reader Second, [...]
