Spell or High Water (Magic 2.0 #2) by Scott Meyer

Reviewed by Lotte:

This is the second book in the Magic 2.0 series where we see two branches of the storyline. The First being Jimmy’s liaisons with Treasury Agents Miller & Murphy. Then there is Martin and Phillips trip to Atlantis for a magical grand summit. We are introduced to the Britts and very quickly a murder plot arises which Martin and Phillip attempt to solve.

I enjoyed this instalment of the series, but I have to admit, not as much as the first book (perhaps that is because I had such high expectations after the first one). Nonetheless it was interesting to add the dynamic of the two Britts and the time-travel paradox – although this was confusing enough now, I fear future books may become more so! The murder mystery had a few little plot twists and things to keep you reading and Jimmy’s side story was fairly clever. However, it felt a bit like a filler story, paving the way for future plots.

Once again, Luke Daniels narrates this perfectly. Honestly, I think his interpretation and delivery just make the book so much better.
