Comments Armed & Magical

  • Felicia

    Yet again Raine charms and delights me and forces me to stay up until 2am reading and then pouting because I can't pick up the next one immediately.I love this series, it is everything I love to read, and everything I'd love to write. Virtually continuous from the last book, it follows Raine adventuring anew with yummy romantic triangles and lots of fun fighting. The author writes with an enthusiasm and a sense of humor that is in no way forced and incredibly infectious. This is a classic advent [...]

    I wrote it. ; )

    If you enjoyed book one of the Raine Benares series, you will also enjoy book two, as it is really more of the same thing. Raine is still psychically tied to the magical stone, the Saghred, and still trying to get disentangled from it. Quite the opposite of most quest tales, really, where the hero is often trying to obtain a certain object and then wield its power, Raine is trying to divest herself of a powerful magic stone. I found myself wishing for a bit more nuance in the characterization of [...]

    I used to like Felicia Day; I saw an interview she did, via IM telephony, wearing her WoW wireless headset. I mean, c'mon! Cool! Self-employed and not ashamed of it. Hardworking, makes her own opportunities!Looked her up on , which she pimped. She recommended this, under the most bizarre category ever invented — 'vaginal fantasy'. Seriously.What it is is humdrum romance-with-pointy-ears-and-magic.Lisa Shearin knows one thing fairly well: pacing. Lisa Shearin sets 4 books in the space of a mont [...]

    "My name is Raine Benares and I am a seeker".Raine, Phalen and Prias are on the island of Mid, with Mycheal. Prias is preparing for his audition. Raine is stuck with her connection to the evil stone. Everyone wants her or the stone. They don't much care. Tam is back but we find out his reasons are shocking Admirable but shocking. The opening is with action and it doesn't much stop. There isn't a whole lot of romance but there are hints to one. Raine still has a thing for Tan. Her lust for Mychea [...]


  • Angie

    Two Raine Benares books down and I can say three things: first--I am officially aLisa Shearin fan, second--I liked Armed & Magical just as much as (if not more than)Magic Lost, Trouble Found, and third--it's going to be a long wait for book #3,The Trouble with Demons, to come out the end of April. Lisa has, however, assured me that my wait will not be in vain, as book #3 will have more than enough sizzle to satisfy any Team Tam girl's needs. To be fair, she said the same will be true for Tea [...]


  • Summer

    I am totally in love with this series. The first book was fantastic and the second completely rocked my socks. So Raine is on the Isle of Mid hoping that Guardian Mychael can keep her alive long enough to unravel the mysteries of the Saghred. Particularly the part of how you become unbonded to it. In addition to a bevy of evil goblins and greedy elves, she's got missing students to find and Piaras's magical abilities are also attracting some unwanted attention. Raine is a fantastic heroine. She' [...]


  • Kaarina

    I gave the second book a go since a few people have highly recommended this series to me and I thought maybe I didn't like the first book because it was simply that, the first book. Authors improve and so could this series. All it needed was a second chance, right? But nope, still bored with it.


  • Debrac2014

    Action packed story! Everyone is after Raine!


  • Paradoxical

    Hm. Armed & Magical marks the second book in the Raine Benares series. Raine finds herself on the Isle of Mid, which is filled with mages, in what is essentially a gilded cage as she's still linked with the Saghred. The Saghred proves to be a rather noisy stone, as the occupants (the villain in the first book, mainly) make themselves known, as well as the stone itself proving to be a temptation of sorts for Raine, as it wants to be used. Raine gets embroiled in an unexpected investigation an [...]


  • Beth

    Amazing. On to book 3!


  • Sunny

    4.5 stars. I really enjoyed this one. We are rolling now. Thanks, Nichols!


  • Tracy

    ~* 3.5 Stars *~When It Raines It PoursRaine Benares is on the Isle of Mid with hope that the powerful mages there will be able to free her from the Saghred's insidious influence.

  • Namista

    2 stars for writing style, 3 for storyline.


  • Mike (the Paladin)

    I list this on my Urban Fantasy shelf. I find (that in my opinionpeat that's my opinion) they have what I'd call an Urban Fantasy feel. I'll say more later but I wanted to open with a nod to those who are emphatic about this being "fantasy" but not "UF". I list it as both.So, what to sayI'm glad I got to this book. I've had a run of books that I couldn't rate above a low 3 stars and some I had to (in good conscience) rate a 1 star read. This one is the proverbial 4.5 and only misses a 5 by a fra [...]


  • Ben Babcock

    I started Armed & Magical immediately after finishing Magic Lost, Trouble Found, and it was a good decision. Armed & Magical picks up right where the first book ends. Raine is still burdened with the Saghred, which continually flexes its psychic muscle. Sarad Nukpana lurks on the edge of her awareness. There's elves and goblins after her, not to mention any number of mages who might want her power for their own.I love how Raine explains the Saghred, calling it her "psychic roommate." Lis [...]


  • Yolanda Sfetsos

    I gotta say, Lisa totally sucked me in from the first chapter. Of course, I've read and really enjoyed the first book, so I couldn't wait to see what would happen to Raine this time especially since we were going to be shown a completely different island.Wow. It didn't disappoint, that's for sure. I love Raine's voice. It's so casual and witty. She's very stubborn too, even if she knows that a situation might be a little too hard for her to deal with, she's willing to do whatever she can. I have [...]


  • Blodeuedd Finland

    This is a fun series, and I would call it UF in a fantasy land. Cos it's so UF! Just you know, set in a fantasy world with elves, goblins and humans and magic.Raine is a seeker, she has some magic but not a lot. But in the last book she became the host of this magical stone. And trust me, that is NOT a good thing. The stone is not a nice stone, and if Raine can't get rid of it then she will probably die.But before that! An adventure on the island of mages. Mages are disappearing and she is the r [...]


  • Literary Ames Against GR Censorship

    Good story, great sexual tension and some ass-kicking action.The highlight for me is the sexual tension between Raine and Mychael. They've only known each other for about two weeks by the end of this book but they've got quite a spark. Raine's known Tam for two years though so I guess he has an advantage. I class Tam as a former bad guy and Mychael is a good guy willing to break the rules for the greater good. I like them both so I can't choose which one I want to end up with Raine, can't she ha [...]


  • Bob

    Perhaps not as good as the first in the series (Magic Lost, Trouble Found), but worth a try. I dropped it one star for frustration. Drives me crazy when the heroine has all these powers, and can't seem to do anything, while the evil fellows never fail. If you can hold a ceiling up, why not squeeze his head like a grape? Parts were excellent, parts were dragging. I would still recommend it as a pretty fun book.


  • Chris

    After reading the first Raine Benares story, I thought I'd found a fun magic series. Sadly no. Some of the humor survives into the sequels, but generally they are unimpressive and unentertaining. Shearin apparently has no problem with lifting whole paragraphs from previous books every time she has a character or idea to introduce. Is it really that hard to rephrase a description? The repetition is wearing, and the issues/conflicts lose their oomph quickly.


  • Mara

    3 1\2It's fun, it's light, there are mystery and mayhem, and some sexual tension to wrap it all up nicely. What can I ask more for a sleepy midwinter Sunday afternoon?Great world-building without much deep characterization make a great romp into adventure. (Do not misunderstand me, characters aren't flat or one-dimensional. Simply, this is an adventure, so it does not dwell long on anything else.)


  • Kataryna Hermans

    Smiles all round. A truly fantastic read. Bring on the next one!


  • Caitlen

    Just way too boring. It had a lot of great scenes, a lot of potential, but in the end, there was way too much history and politics and it failed to keep my attention.


  • Jennifer

    This was OK. More of Raine being the center of the universe, and all good guys being good guys and bad guys being bad guys. I guess I like to be challenged a little more by books these days


  • Sarah

    This book was just ok for me, although the plot kept moving right along I do not feel inclined to read any more of her books though.


  • Miryam

    The first one was better. This one was way too predictable; I quite halfway through.


  • Gemstreet Reviews

    Caution: Do not read this review if you haven’t read the first novel in the series. Review full of spoilers from Book 1.I picked up this book immediately after I finished the first one in the series. I liked it even more.Previously, Raine had decided to accompany Mychael (the hot-hot dude in authority) and her (not by blood but equally dear) younger brother Piaras to the Isle of Mid where the Conclave resides. It could not be avoided because Raine is now connected to the soul-sucking evil rock [...]


  • Cindy

    2nd in the series. Raine continues her adventures & problems on the main island of Mid. The magical rock continues to vex & she now has new enemies. Reading the 1st book is important to know what's going on. So, I went up with the stars because this is a solid story & the world building is great. I think the problem is mine. I want to like this story more, but the rock issue is getting tedious. There's no resolution. The love triangle is frustrating too. Love the cover! The woman on [...]


  • Iain

    I dunno if it's the story, or the narrator, but I think I'm done with this series for awhile if/when I do return, I think I will try the ebook in a lot of ways, from reading the blurbs, this seems to be one story in 5-6 parts similar to the Fever series with its Sinsar Dubh artifact but this series has a bit more of a self-contained plot in each book going as well, so I don't feel as bad taking a break
