What is it about?

(Blurb from GoodReads)

You don’t have to be mad to work at the Office of Faery Godmothers. But you do have to be magic.

Saffron Sawyer is a faery on a mission. She may no longer have the same rose-tinted spectacles about her job as she once did, but she’s still determined to be the best faery godmother that there is. And when she’s given the role as leader of a taskforce designed to hunt down the elusive trolls, she knows it’s her time to step up and be counted.

Juggling her new responsibilities while dealing with difficult clients isn’t easy, however. Danger lurks around every corner – and Jasper, the handsome and powerful Devil’s Advocate, is continually looming over her shoulder in the office.

Can Saffron prove her worth to the world of magic? Or will she make one mistake too many and find herself in mortal danger?

Thoughts on Wish List

Read my Review of Book 1 Here

I do so enjoy Helen Harper. She has a way of crafting characters and situations that make for an entertaining tale – with enough mystery and flirting (I’ve yet to read one with all out heat – not saying she hasn’t written them, just haven’t read one yet) to push the plot forward.

This book, featuring  faery godmothers and an entire unknown realm of faeries and other magical creatures, all with jobs, is fascinating and read worthy. Add in a smoky and broody hero, a fizzy haired heroine, mystery and a decades long quest for vengeance… and you have a book that will thrill for hours.


  • Well written.
  • Love The concept
  • The Devils advocate…. oh yes.
  • The metaplot and how it rolls.


  • Some parts were a touch slow or jumbled, not enough to hinder the story though.
  • Sigh…. moments I really felt like the FMC was smarter than me and had to really think to figure out how she has drawn the conclusions she did.
