Throwback Thursday #5: Magic Lost, Trouble Found

This is a great feature that Melissa at My words and pictures has been doing for a while and I wanted to jump on board! There are plenty of books out there I desperately want...

But what about all those wonderful books that are ALREADY on my shelves?

This highlights a book I already have but just haven't got round to reading yet!

Magic Lost, Trouble Found - Lisa Shearin
'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 possession of the item, it takes possession of her.

I can't wait to start this book! I'd almost forgotten I had it on the shelf, but I love the cover, the premise and there's a whole selection of further books to explore afterwards! Why have I waited so long? Oh, yeah, the hundred of other books in the pile that I want to read! :)


  1. I have wanted to read this one for some time now, it sounds so fun :D

  2. Well... get to reading! Plus, that way I know if I need to snatch one up for myself. ;)

  3. OOooooo... I have this on my WANT list! It sounds like such a fun read and series. :) I do hope you enjoy it when you get to it. :)

    Great pick this week!

    And I'm really glad you join in with the meme. :) Thank you!!
