Witches Brew: The Phantom Queen Diaries, Book 6 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Over one million readers have been pleasured by the Temple Verse novels. Now, it’s your turn....
Fae are missing all over Boston, and apparently, no one else is suicidal enough to look into it.
Good thing Quinn MacKenna - black magic arms dealer and Fae half-breed - has been searching for a way to earn back some of Boston’s goodwill after almost destroying the city...twice. Besides, favors for the Fae usually pay dividends if you play your cards right....
As long as the Fae don’t double-cross or otherwise backstab you. But that hardly ever happens....
Thankfully, Quinn has Robin Redcap to back her up - between his skill at navigating Fae politics and his penchant for extreme, brutal violence, it’s a match made in Heaven. Or Hell.
But the only evidence they have to go on is a crime scene laden with ritualistic ingredients and blood - lots and lots of blood - leading Quinn to suspect witchcraft.
Except the witches are a tight-knit community who don’t appreciate Quinn’s intrusion - even when all she wants to do is help. Simply put, what happens in the coven stays in the coven.
The situation grows murkier and deadlier by the minute as Quinn finds herself cauldron-deep in a swirl of betrayal, conspiracy, and vengeance.
Especially when she discovers who is really stirring the pot, and that it might all stem from an unfulfilled promise made by a certain trigger-happy redhead regarding a certain magic-slinging wizard in St. Louis. And the Fae put pretty big stock in promises and agreements.
Double, double, toil and trouble....
This little oath-breaker is in big, big trouble.
Quinn is the newest antihero in the worldwide best-selling Temple Verse by Shayne Silvers. Join Cameron O’Connell and Shayne at the literary bar to sip a dirty cocktail of feisty Irish brogue - with an unhealthy splash of monsters - today!

Part of Silvers and then later O'Connell's juggling act has always been balancing speed and quality. The Nate Temple novels were originally set to a more typical release pace, even as Silvers moved to writing full time and began the Feathers and Fire series at the same time. O'Connell's inclusion into the mix debuted with four novels in a quick release schedule and since moved to a similar pace as the rest, though the rest are now moving along at much quicker rates.
That the quality has remained despite the increasingly driven timetable of their releases is a testament to their literary talents and developed skill. It is entirely possible that O'Connell has simply chosen to escalate the pace of his writing to fall in stride with the developments Silvers has been making with his two series, but I'm at the point of wondering if its not stretching the overall arc for Quinn MacKenna a bit too thinly for how some of the plot points are being developed. One of the four aforementioned game changers in the book relates to one of Quinn's longest standing heritage questions, but is glossed over so quickly and with so little digestion for her or the reader for the plot at hand that it almost feels like it was penned in after the fact.
The book is not flawed for this, or lower in quality for it, overall it is another great installment and I'm as always looking forward to the next. But it does make me wonder if the constant escalation of stakes and increasingly grander twists and turns for the characters isn't starting to weigh on the natural development of the overall universe a bit. Even the characters themselves are starting to seem a bit numbed to how certain things unfold and given the quality of the series and the universe overall, I'd hate to see it start breaking down under over-saturation of dramatic plot developments.
O’Connell was the perfect choice for Shayne Silvers world, to give it another perspective and one that compliments Shayne’s own writing style. Vastly different, O’Connell’s writing adds a grittiness and edge that was needed for Quinn to overcome the truth of who she is. The characters of the TempleVerse world needs both voices to balance out the storyline and expand the imagination that the reader thrives on.
The way the three series of TempleVerse (the other two series are the Nate Temple Chronicles and Feather & Fire) are coming together is so smooth and enjoyable. I love reading the story and feeling like I am experiencing the drama, emotions and life events that happen to each lead. Quinn is a very strong character and O'Connell has given her such life with her edgy personality and approach to relationships and challenges. We see this so clearly in this book.
Witches Brew has it all. New challenges, new characters, and a suspenseful story that keeps your interest until the end. As always in these books, there are surprises and twists that we don’t see coming. It’s a wild ride that is hot to touch.
One line in the book, that actually, has a finishing add-on later, describes the essence of what this book is all about. “The risk of awakening a creature with the power of god and none of the limitations…..but with the heart, the conscience of a mortal”.
Well done! Congrats on the successful collaboration.
This story is about her being asked by Hansel, Hansel & Gretel to help find members of the Fae community who have gone missing. Quinn is also hoodwinked, into helping find two witches who have dropped off the map, by Morgan Le Fay.
The story involves many different creatures, if you will, from many different worlds. It moves quickly, with all sorts of mayhem and is interesting, fun and upsetting at times, until Quinn and Max find where the kidnaped have been taken. Then the story goes dark and at times confusing, what else to be expected when humans, Fae, witches and Otherworldly beings come together.
Quinn learns even more about herself, who her parents are and a little more about her powers, but there is still a "hole" to filled. Many questions, still are unanswered, at the end of the story. Hopefully in the next book, Quinn will learn how to fill that hole.
