I needed something, light, unchallenging but with enough going for it to keep me interested to read, so I picked up the third book in "The Lazy Girl's Guide To Magic" and settled in to listen.

I've resigned myself to having Tanya Eby as the narrator. She does a good job but I can't understand why Tantor picked an American with a very limited range of Brit accents to read a series set in England and Scotland and with no American characters.

That rant aside, I slipped on the earphones and gave myself up to the reading equivalent of eating a tub of salted caramel ice cream on a hot day.

It was as much fun as I expected but I was surprised to find that it had some real sadness in it. As a result of her encounter with a megalomanic necromancer in "Star Witch", Ivy, our reluctant hero and proudly lazy witch, can now speak to the dead. Some of the people she's speaking to have recently been murdered and I found an unexpected level of empathy for their loss.

By the end of the book, Ivy's "Lazy Witch" persona had effectively been set aside as she finds herself wanting to get involved in preventing bad things from happening.

This was a satisfying happy ever after ending to the trilogy and a relaxing way to spend the day. ( )

I'm actually repeating my review of the second book:

I really liked the first book, a random Kindle Unlimited find. This was also a fun read, definitely edited and ready to be published. At time I read, it was also in KU.

After enjoying the first book so much, I immediately binged the next two books. I recommend the books and the series but not to binge them back to back. Because the books are good with excellent story flow -- the series not so much. Not sure how to explain except the three books I read don't seem to belong together despite a shared main character. Oh, there are a few bits getting on with expected plot, careers and romance. But the main character just seems after first book to be thrown into settings and circumstances that don't seem to mesh with previous book -- maybe even completely different genres for each book. ( )

Spirit Witch
The Lazy Girl's Guide to Magic, Book 3
By: Helen Harper
Narrated by: Tanya Eby
LOL, This series just gets better! Start from the beginning, you don't want to miss the fun. Something happens in book two that causes Ivy to see ghosts now. It is hilarious! This whole series has kept me laughing. It is a fun series with lots of action, crazy characters, (especially her cat Brutus my favorite), and so much more! This is my new favorite series and I read or listen to over 900 books a year. Be sure to read book 4 too! it isn't in audible.
The narrator is super awesome! She makes it so funny, she has the right stuff for these books. ( )

After her brush with Necromancy in Scotland Ivy has been suffering some side effects - she’s not sure of the full implications, but it seems she can see ghosts

Ghosts are noisy and annoying and don’t respect a woman’s wish to bond with her duvet on her sofa all day

Some of these ghosts are not exactly thrilled to have the less-than-motivated Ivy as the one woman who can see them, but you work with what you can since she may be the key to freeing them from their purgatory - and with a serial killer on the loose targetting witches, their ghostly insight can certainly help the Order investigation.

This book ended and apparently this amazing series is a trilogy which means thi is the last book. No-one consulted me on this. I did not agree to this. I do not approve. This is my disapproving face.

But as it has ended, one thing I really liked is that Ivy is still very recognisable as the character who started this series. She’s still the Slouch Witch. She’s still lazy. She still avoids effort.

I’m not saying I’m against character growth or that Ivy hasn’t grown or changed. She has changed and she has grown, she has got involved. She will whine but she will get out there and help when she has to. She would just rather not do it first thing in the morning. Her talent and skill are clear as well as well as her moral compass and even willingness to sacrifice. But so many books would have taken Ivy, had her had a revelation, maybe a training montage and then have her spending late nights reading books or getting up at dawn to go to the gym. Her heroics haven’t turned her into a new person. Even her new powers haven’t driven her to embrace her new purpose in life. She’s still Ivy, laziest witch and I like that because everything that made her so unique is still there and it wasn’t treated as something to remove from the character. Again, I’m not against that kind of character growth, but I like that we kept the very essence of what makes Ivy Ivy

And I do love Ivy. I love that Ivy is such a perfect, ordinary person even if she does have extraordinary powers. Yes she’s fighting evil, yes she’s involved in a dangerous investigation but that core of such normality, that foundation of duvet loving, laziness makes her so relatable and real. And I just love how her talking cat fits into that - I can’t even begin to spoil it even if it isn’t especially plot relevant, it’s just too awesome.

I also like how Raphael has grown over the series - I think he still needs a little more than being the hyper-competent guy who loves Ivy. but in some ways him being this picture-perfect awesome guy he emphasises Ivy’s realness - while not overshadowing her because she can go toe-to-toe with her. I think it’s even intentional because a number of the more side characters have elements which I appreciate: from the simple dedication of the Ipissimus to even designated-rival-bad-guy actually being useful and helpful even while Ivy seethes over it. I like that, I like that even the caricature of awful is still not all bad - and that Ivy isn’t the bigger person to let this go

I’m also loving a depiction of ghosts as annoying pushing nuisances - as well as the whole extremely original concept of how ghosts are created.

Now, this is more like it.

*I want to know the background of Blackbeard, how he became that way.

*Brutus reminds me of Iron Fey's Grimalkin. Is he just an ordinary familiar or is there something more to him?

*Is this only a trilogy? Awww, it feels like there must be more. ( )
