USA Today best-selling author Ash Krafton is bringing a new twist to the old swish-and-flick…. Magic is all in the way you cast it in Takin’ It Back, her newest urban fantasy novel!

Think there’s nothing worse than becoming like your mother? Try being possessed by her spirit.

Twenty-year-old Aerie hates running collateral recovery for her father’s magical supply shop. Repossession is a nasty business, even when you’re good at it. Her dream job? The store’s new acquisitioner…but Pop says that job’s for someone who finds things, not loses them. When a mysterious amulet must be found, Aerie sees an opportunity to prove her worth to him.

That’s when a spirit trapped inside the amulet possesses her instead. Demonic powers are handy on a door-knock or when facing down one’s nemesis, but mages can’t use the demonic ley without becoming tainted. Worse yet, the spirit may be Aerie’s difficult, deadbeat, long-gone mother.

The possession will destroy Aerie if she doesn’t get the amulet off – but the only person who can do that is the guy she repo’d it from. Mr. Probable Ulterior Motive says if she finds some crummy old book she’d lost years ago, she may discover the spirit’s true identity and prevent its damnation. Aerie must entrust her fate to a complete stranger, or let the demon get what it wants – and it wants Pop dead.

Gonna be one hell of a family reunion.

Lara Croft meets The Magicians in this tale of magic, adventure, and hidden truths….

    I was intrigued by the premise of this book, a repo man for magic items, but what I found was a novel about family and undying love. It was not what I expected but it was certainly a great read. This is the first time I’ve read anything by Ms. Krafton and I’ll admit I did anticipate a few of the twists of the book, but not all of them.

    Ms. Reece did a good job narrating the book and provided voices for each of the main characters. Her narration certainly helped to keep the novel on track.

    I did feel that the end felt rushed. There was a lot going on with different spells and artifacts and it became a bit hard to follow at times. Overall though I would recommend this book, especially if you enjoy the idea of magicians and supernatural beings living among us as typical business and homeowners.

    I was provided with a free copy of this audio book for my honest review. The views expressed here are entirely my own.

    I liked it. It needs a little refining, but overall it is a decent plot, decent pace, good characters. My only problem is I knew the end before it got to it, so the characters should not have taken so long to figure it out. I would love to see a part two.
