(from back cover) “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 necromancer, Raine finds herself wrapped up in more trouble than she cares for. She likes attention as much as the next girl, but having an army of militant goblins hunting her down is not her idea of a good time. The amulet they’re after holds limitless power, derived from an ancient, soul-stealing stone. And when Raine takes possesion of the item, it takes possesion of her.

Now her moderate powers are increasing beyond anything she could imagine – but is the resume enhancement worth her soul?”

 I found this book to be a really pleasant surprise. I couldn’t put it down! It was in the fantasy section, and the author did a great job of pulling me into Raine’s world. Very believable, alot of action, intriguing plot, great smorgasbord of characters, and the author has a sense of humor which is always appreciated by me. Elves, Goblins, Magic & Mayhem. I highly recommend it and am looking forward to the next book in Raine Benares’s Mermeia. Magic Lost, Trouble Found gets
