Will it because we don't know if it's a girl or a boy have good strong magic or will it be tainted by Lucien's part of it's make up? Lots of uestions still left unanswered I wonder how many books will star a pregnant Mara and when her baby will appear I hope it's a girl like Mara has been imagining it is and not a boy like Gus is insisting it isAll in all very interesting very knowledgeable sometimes uite funny a bit scary too but it sure has me interested in reading i loved the first book so much I had to get and read book two Now we must wait for book three I hope the wait isnt very longI cant believe some of that stuff that Gus got into He definitely made me want to slap him sometimes Especially when he threw away all the munchies in the house bad gusi am looking forward to the next book wow This was better than the first one as the language and the sex scenes were tones down uite a bit Still a bit strange is a lot of ways If you are into supernatural and witchcraft this one is for you can't wait for the next oneThis was even better than the first book I can't wait until the next one becomes available Toad Witch Rules It was okI really wanted a bit but hey I did enjoy it Maybe a third book about baby would be really great After being possessed by ancestors who were up to no good Mara's now pregnant with a witch possibly demon child Mara may want the baby but that doesn't mean Paul her boyfriend who is struggling from post possession disorder is on side If that were not enough Gus the man that she can always count is obsessed with the remains of Lord Grundleshanks a deceased magical toad Aunt Tillie knows that things are about to go desperately wrong but can Mara figure it out in time to saver her best friend?Somebody Tell Aunt Tillie We're In Trouble is the perfect book to pick up to relax on a beautiful lazy S afternoon It's light and it's fun and an extremely easy read Don't go into expecting anything earth shattering and you should have a good time with it Miller did world building in this second outing for Mara and Gus and we learn that Devil's Point is actually uite aptly named Sure living on top of a hellmouth means that Mara and Gus can work magnificent spells now but maybe just maybe there's a reason there are limits to a witches powers Even though Mara and Gus have only recently gotten over their latest bit of trouble with the supernatural Gus's stubbornness means that they are full steam ahead because after all rules are meant to broken right? What makes this book interesting is the constant bickering between Gus and Mara They are like wild siblings who love each other but cannot seem to stop snarking I love that Gus completely supported Mara's choice to keep her baby and even offered to step into the role of father figure in place of the deadbeat Paul even though Gus constantly wishing for a boy was somewhat irksome to me I really want Gus to have his own life separate from Mara As it is he's already picked up his life and moved to Wisconsin because Mara did Then there's his obsession with every morsel of food Mara puts in her mouth barbecue she's pregnant It's a stark contrast to Mara's assertions about her body Throwing out all of Mara's favourite foods because he didn't think she should eat them any longer is crossing a line Then there's the issue that Gus finally got a boyfriend and of course it's the devil They both agree that they want happiness for the other and while their relationship is great Gus being so intertwined in Mara's life turns him into GBFF and that's a trope It is further problematic that Miller just had to come up with a reason for these two to kiss Ummm nope Let Gus be the gay man that he is Mara showed real backbone when she stood up to Paul declaring that since the baby was in her body that it was her choice It's not often in media that we have such strong declarations of female reproductive freedom I will however say that Miller only chose this stance because Mara had chosen to keep her baby Media is generally speaking reluctant to take this tact when a woman is choosing to have an abortion I liked that Mara not only justified her decision by claiming her body but that she also told Paul he could choose the level of his interaction with the child As for Paul him going through post traumatic possession disorder while played for laughs at times is actually very important uite often in this genre characters go through unspeakable things and they seem to just magically bounce back from trauma after trauma with no ill effects Paul recognising that he needed to seek mental healthcare when dealing with the after effects of having his body possessed is really important even if he couldn't tell his psychiatrist the whole truth about what was troubling him Where Paul's trauma did fall down was his concern about the baby having hooves or horns Yes to the medical staff it made him seem unstable and it was absolutely played for laughs; however given that he was possessed by a demon it's not an unreasonable concern Read More 375 for this fun and uirky book Mara and Gus are at it again Gus has it in his head that he needs to honor Grundleshanks for the sacrifice that psychedelic toad had made in book 1 and it lands them into a series of trouble that strangley only Mara seems to see coming Gus loses faith in her Paul is an ass the morning sickness is out of control and someone needs to change the litter box What's worse Gus's new beau is driving a rift between friendsHere's what I didn't like Holy scene breaks batman A lot of it felt like the author would write a couple hundred words scene break and then flow right into the same thing Like I'm not sure exactly why the need for so many breaks were in this book I don't even remember it being like this in the first one but what was the point? The very next scene was just a continuation of the first scene There wasn't a POV change so that wasn't the reason She went down the stairs? Is that why? I was thoroughly perplexed by the scene breaks and it made the flow of a lot of the chapters choppy and encouraged me to do something else instead of continually reading Luckily I'm as stubborn as Gus is There's also some minor punctuation issues around dialog and action tags Paul's a real jerk in this book and the rift between them feels natural and I don't like him but that's not a flaw I pegged Forrest immediately but only because I instinctively imagined him as a certain actor who has played that type of role a couple timesHere's what I liked It has the same easy happy go lucky feel as book 1 and the same charm that charmed me I loved the toadstool the banter between Gus and Mara Grundleshanks the on going aunt tillie themeOverall this was a nice red the plot was presented in a timely manner and had good pacing but the unnecessary scene breaks hurt the flow of the books I got the first book in the series because it was free on and came as one of the recommended books of the day sort of thing from ereadericom Started reading it and I couldn't tell if I liked it or not couldn't tell if it was good or not and couldn't tell if this book would be offensive to my wiccan friends I finished the first book in the series and I still couldn't tell if I liked it if it was good or if it would be offensive to my wiccan friends But it was sufficiently engrossing that I looked for the seuel This the seuel was not free But I got it anyway And I can't tell if I liked it I can't tell if it was good and I can't tell if it would be offensive to my wiccan friends Elements were entirely predictable and yet I had no idea exactly where it was going until the very end and it kept me engrossed until the endThis series confuses me
