“Maggie’s on the run. What better place to hide than in the faceless entertainment industry? Working on a movie set is about to introduce Maggie to a whole new level of evil. She didn’t realize that when they talked about movie magic, they meant movie MAGIC. There is a new breed of vampire taking over the studios. Every terrible reboot and horrible movie they make is designed to drain a person’s soul. Guess it’ll be up to Maggie to make sure these vamps see nothing but stars.
WARNING: This book contains cussing, brawling, and unladylike behavior. Proceed with caution.”
(Blurb from Amazon.com)
In the 6th installment of the Maggie MacKay saga, Maggie finds herself on the lamb and needing a place to hide. After some wheeling and dealing she ends up in the San Fernando Valley as a PA for a movie studio….in otherwords, Hell.
This book has all of the things that I’ve come to expect from Maggie. Trouble, cussing, snark, and humor. It’s a much lighter read than book 5, which I definitely needed. (I cried so hard) With Maggie being on the run it also means that it’s Killian – lite, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Don’t get me wrong, I ADORE that effing wood elf and his literal-ness, but every once in a while we all need to be pushed out of our comfort zones. It’s kind of like an episode of Supernatural where it’s just Sam and Dean and Cas is offscreen watching Netflix. We enjoyed it, but we can’t wait til the next episode when the team is back together again.
I loved this book because Maggie is pretty much how I imagine I would be if I were tasked with saving the world. I love that she doesn’t give up. I mean I want to curl up in a ball and hide right now because I don’t have any clean forks, which means Maggie is my role model. Yeah housework isn’t as fun as stabbing things, but we all have our burdens and Maggie can teach us to bear them with grace, dignity ….haha just kidding. She is my role model, I was kidding about the grace and dignity part.
So, switching gears now as I’ve just remembered I’m reviewing this sucker and I’m supposed to be all professional and stuff. It seems like I’ve waited an eternity for this book to come out. Now that I’ve finished, I’m going to go back into a book depression while waiting for the next installment to come out this Fall! So I’m already going to come out and say this book was a solid 5 out of 5 stars. I’m a rabid fangirl and poor Kate Danley had to go and create an awesome world for me to worship. You could argue that this review is biased, and it probably is, but seriously I loved this book. If there had been holes in the plot, massive grammatical errors, or just a bad story line, I would have sucked it up and written about it. Fortunately there wasn’t and I can happily gush about it.
If you haven’t read the Maggie MacKay series before and don’t know what the heck I’m fangirling over, fear not, the first book: Maggie For Hire is FREE for Kindle readers!
