I wish we would have had a glimpse at the wedding, but maybe in a book 9? Owen, Katie, and a whole lot of frogs. This latest instalment of the Enchanted Inc. If in the first book Katie was surprised that kissing frogs really does occasionally turn up a prince, here the issue is put to the test in a way she had never expected. But by now she is so experienced in the world of magic that frog-kissing is the least of her worries - especially when one of those frogs might just be someone she cares very much about It's all in a day's work in the world of magical law enforcement.
I find this series to be the ultimate literary escapism for me and my favorite guilty pleasure.
They have magic, mayhem, and romance. They make you smile and keep your imagination going even if you know the good guys will always win. I thought this series was over so I missed that she came out with a 8th book that follows Katie and Owen as they have to take down a rival company from the inside before it takes over MSI.

Confession: This series is one of my guilty pleasures. They can be at times predictable, but in a warm and comfortable way, and they're just as likely to surprise you, too. Plus, there's so much cleverness in the inherent rules of the world in which this story is set, that I couldn't help but fall in love. I enjoyed this installment as much as the others, and haven't felt letdown whatsoever. I look forward to hopefully reading more in the future - don't end it here :.

Enchanted Ever After
The rest of the series is a nice balance of light humor and a touch of danger. This book lacks much of the humor, emotional closeness between the usual characters and unusual plots that make the rest of the series so enjoyable. Swendson's villains have always been rather lightweight, but the first villain here really doesn't seem either very real or threatening enough, and the second villain is almost a non-entity.
Another problem is that I was missing Katie's interactions with her roommates. They were largely responsible for keeping the other books grounded along with her family's contributions , but only had a few scenes in this story.

I hope the next book in the series remembers Katie's roots better than this one did. Vertaal recensie in het Nederlands. And of course, Owen. But things are never that simple for those two, so of course Katie is sent off on a stealth assignment. I was anxious that that would meant too much distance from everything she knew and loved, but I loved how she was still able to connect in any way she could.
This big showdown at the end was a good climax to the story.
