    I received this audiobook free from Audiobook Blast in exchange for an honest review; thanks I just wish that I could honestly give it a positive review especially since it’s my first book through the program However It’s a sort of odd young adult flavored cross between Gardens of the Moon and the Dresden Files This is not meant as a compliment It attempts the cocky uippy fast paced style of Dresden and also boasts

When a dragon plotting to take over the world offers her a choice Work for him or else Lillim Callina is going to choose el From jbgarner58wordpresscomI know I start many of my thoughts on literary consumptions with a uestion so bear with me as I do it againHave you ever sat down to a grand literary banuet ready to really stuff your face only to have every course crammed at you before you ve even had a bite of the last one New flavors new foods soups salads puddings meats cheeses each one is thrown down in front of your begging you to consume Try as you might to enjoy the whole thing to savor each tempting bit of flavor in the end you just wind up tired You know there s a lot of good bits on that table things that you are sure you ate but as you sit back at the end of that bewildering experience you re just tired Welcome to my experience with Kill It With MagicBefore we dive in further everyone put your hand over your heart as we recite the Starving Review creed I attempt to rate every book from the perspective of a fan of the genre I attempt to make every review as spoiler free as possibleI ve sampled many literary meals that moved slowly like the wobble of a dense pile of Jell O That is infuriating certainly but Mr Cipriano s book is the first time I have literally felt tired at the end of If previous books have been paced too slowly this book was paced in overdrive New events new conflicts and new characters are fired at the reader constantly with old ones coming back in and out of the plot constantly Explanations of events or the clues to figure them out are few and far between with some minor points getting deep explanations and some major points being brushed over casually The whole thing almost explodes apart with plot overload This is one book I would understand a reader wanting a cheat sheet of all the characters so they could keep track of itNow to give credit to the chef much of the time the constant action serves as a sort of self sustaining chemical reaction fueling the reader to keep going and keep their head up It helps that the action scenes themselves are well done if amazingly over the top That s another thing this meal is so rich so dripping with creme and chocolate and other things to satisfy it will give you diabetes at twenty paces To put it in practical terms this book is so over the top the only words I can use to describe it is Mary Sue Jumping The Shark With Michael Bay Explosions Going Off EVERYWHERE This isn t necessarily a bad thing as I personally love authors with the guts to go over the top However it does contribute to that feeling of exhaustion at the end You re overstuffed and nauseous filled up with rich food and wondering why oh why did you do thatAll of this extreme action and rapid fire plot detracts mostly from the world building There is either a very complex and imaginative alternate Earth hidden somewhere under the explosions and sword fights or the intriguing ravings of a madman Either one I want to know about but there just isn t room Major organizations get brief mentions Heck MAJOR GODS from mythology show up for a page or two and that s that You start off thinking this is a pretty normal supernaturals hiding in the shadows sort of modern Earth and then find out very minor spoilers as this really doesn t effect the plot that two major religious cities were nuked into radioactive rubble and that s just the tip of the open changes to this Earth You literally find yourself stopping and going what Too many moments force you to stop and wonder what just happened and how does that fit into the bigger picture because if you don t stop reading to figure it out it will be overwhelmed by the next big action seuence that s about to startThis insane pacing and the myriad problems it causes aside there is uite a bit of good here As I mentioned Mr Cipriano does whip up delightful action seuences fluid and fast paced There is a lot of imagination put into the world itself and its own variations on classic supernatural creatures without deviating so far that it makes them unrecognizable The main character herself is actually uite charming and surprisingly deep Despite causing your average Mary Sue Litmus Test to be engulfed in burning flames just be being put near this character her role in the plot defies the tests and she has a good character arc coming to a final epiphany and seeming to make a decision she dances back and forth across over the entire book The over the over the over the top elements that repetition is on purpose have enough that is so cooooool moments that it decently counterbalances the parts where you just shake your head The core plot itself is wrapped up nicely In fact the ending was the best paced part of the entire book It was as if Mr Cipriano realized I was about to throw up all over his nice linens from being over stuffed and so made sure dessert was only a small cup of coffee and a thin slice of cakeRight so where does that leave us in the end Kill It With Magic is an extremely over the top insanely fast paced urban fantasy tale with EXTREME ACTION and there are uite a few things it does right I certainly appreciate the author s courage to have a main character that should by every right be a Sue yet isn t one just because he wrote the story right However the pacing goes way too far and the literally non stop action crowds out too much of the world building that is necessary for a world SO alternate from modern Earth There is a lot of potential here though and it s certainly possible that Mr Cipriano will manage to slow down the pace and add that vital world building to the next book in the series In the end there was a tremendous variety of strong flavors but the fact the servers kept shoving it in my mouth like a Three Stooges movie soured what could have been a great literary mealFINAL VERDICT Intriguing rich flavors but hard to taste when they are all shoved in your mouth at once
