Okay, you've read my reviews before. I usually give a brief detail of what happens in the book, then my thoughts on it. This review is going to be all over the place, LOL! Fair warning.

**Spoiler Alert!** If you plan on reading the novel and don't want to know what happens, do not read past this point!

Lisa Shearin has done it again!!! This is only the fourth book she has published, and already, with her style, she resembles a veteran; an author who's been around for years! She's that good!

Raine's back, with our entire favourite cast of characters.

The spectres are running rampid all over Mid, including Sarad Nukpana. Raine is now after them, to put them back where they belong. The opening line is, and I quote: "I was being chased by a pissed-off guy with a knife. A really big knife." My first thought: And we're off!!!

Then, not halfway down the page, I cracked up when I read: "And believe me, I got to see enough manhoods and fleeing pasty white posteriors to last me a lifetime."

When a shriveled up body is dumped at her feet by none other than Sarad Nukpana, she's warned that the whole situation is about to get worse. Sarad is going to "eat" as much power as he can, and will eventually find a way to control her and the Saghred (stone). And he's going to go after everyone she cares about and everyone she loves before he gets to her.

Raine will stop at nothing to find him.

We see another side of Mychael; now we learn where he came from before he became Paladin. Their umi'atsu bond grows stronger, and both finally admit to being in love with each other.

Talon gets himself into even more trouble - on a couple of separate occasions. Piaras keeps himself out of most of it, until he goes after Talon.

Raine has met up with an old friend again Mr. Sarad Nukpana who is taking souls from residents of Isle of Mid. Mychael and Raine need to stop him before he can make his body whole again.

Mychael and Raine do get closer in this novel and Raine must make a hard decision regarding Tam. Talon tries to be a hero and gets himself in trouble. Piara's can't let his friend go alone so he follows Talon which results in Raine following as well. Like she needs anymore problems.

Bewitched & Betrayed is my favourite novel in the series. It was constantly keeping me on the edge of my seat. Lisa is the master of keeping her books paced with the amount of action she puts in them as well as the humour she uses with her characters.

Alright I admit it I was prepared to wade through this series, not ready to take the word of a friend that it was thoroughly and utterly hilarious. She was right, I loved the off the cuff comments, such as: "he gave me a look, you know the one". The story was pure fiction, but then you are prepared for that, and lets face it buying a book about Elves you expect it to be. But the sense of humor behind the character of Raine makes the whole thing come together. I have gotten several of my friends hooked on the series now as well. Cannot wait for the next one to come out.

HASH(0x98bee8e8) out of 5 stars Decisions are made and the story moves forward May 1 2010
By akb--bookworm - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I found Raine Benares only 3 months ago and have thouroughly enjoyed all of Raine's misadventures. This series is light, fun, and full of action.

Book 4 was going to be a deciding factor for me if I was going to continue with this series or not--And I've decided to continue. I really enjoyed the adventure, the romance (very low-key), the development, and the direction. I worried that this book would be too similar to Armed & Magical (Raine Benares, Book 2) and The Trouble with Demons (Raine Benares, Book 3) which seemed to just keep piling on the troubles and never really push the story forward. I had enjoyed them both, but I was ready for some decisions to be made and some bad guys (or a few of her troubles) to die.

Bewitched & Betrayed (Raine Benares) starts with a bang just weeks after The Trouble with Demons (Raine Benares, Book 3) showing Raine chasing down 1 of the 6 escaped "convicts" who broke free from the Saghred. Satisfied to have caught one, she knows she still has work to do to catch the nastiest of them all, Sarad Nukpana. Add to this the Reapers who want to siphon off the souls of the Saghred through Raine, her ever increasing popularity with the wrong sorts of politicians, an umi'atsu bond with Dark Mage Tam and Guardian Paladin Mychael, and a soul-stealing rock trying to tempt her, Raine is still up to her elven neck in trouble.

Things I loved:
1. The Love-Triangle is resolved--Raine makes a choice! The results felt natural and not forced. Also, there wasn't much drama about it nor angst. (I decided that if wasn't resolved in this book, I'd drop the series.)
2. A few (and one notable) enemies meet their end, for good.
3. Raine is starting to understand her power. What I appreciated about this is that even though she has a major-powerful rock to boost her power it is still HER power that gets the boost. She can't all the sudden do powerful sorcery unrivaled, her own meager powers get an upgrade, which she needs to fend off all the sharks out to get her. With help of her family and friends, she's starting to have more confidence in herself and what she can do. Refreshing.
4. Mychael--He finally cracks that Paladin exterior to let Raine see what kind of man he really is. We learn more about his past and what's formed him into the man we know.
5. Tam--we meet someone from his past and his true desires are put to the test.
6. Family--Raine has such a great family that surrounds her from her 934 year-old dad in a 20 year-olds body to her Pirate uncle who plots deviously (and underhandedly)against those in power to her horny cousin who always finds a way to help Raine and score some for himself at the same time. They really make Raine real.

Things I didn't like so much:
1. Exposition--it was mentioned in another review that the author kept referring in detail to past events. I didn't mind so much with this first reading because it's been a while since I read books 1-3, so I found it somewhat helpful. However, I do know that I will be skipping big paragraphs in future re-readings when I read it again. It was a very minor annoyance.
2. Still many loose ends--There seemed to be a few story lines that were started and just left there hanging. A few bad guys showed up once and then nothing, almost as if they just popped in so that we wouldn't forget about them. When the book ended I thought "Well what about....? and so-and-so....?"

All in all, I really had fun reading Raine's latest adventure. I'm looking forward to her next story. You know it's a good read when it makes you want to revisit the entire series from the beginning again--and that's just what it's done for me.
(Contains a few swear words, one sex scene detailed but not graphic, and fantasy violence.)

HASH(0x97ec4594) out of 5 stars The series is dragging...it could've been finished in 3 books Oct. 11 2010
By Hlsabine - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I really enjoyed the first two books in the series. They were intriguing and playful with some fresh ideas. The last two books really could have been combined into one book and the series finished. It's just dragging now, with a confusing plot, too many characters that weren't interesting enough to remember the first time, and so many unresolved threads. I may pick up the next book, just to see if everything is finally done, but I'll definitely skim it. And I don't know if it's a new artist doing the covers, or if they are meant to show that the series is getting darker, but I don't like the last two covers. The first two were fun and lighthearted; the last two just blended in with the rest of the fantasy-leather-sword chick covers. So, if you read and enjoyed the first few books, read this one to find out the story's development, but just speed through it and don't expect as much.

HASH(0x97ed5774) out of 5 stars Good story development, too long May 21 2010
By WAdams - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I've thoroughly enjoyed the earlier Raine books and was looking forward to this one. Unfortunately, I have to agree with one of the earlier reviewers that there is way to much exposition of the earlier books. I realize that there has to be some backstory covered for people new to the series or who didn't re-read the earlier books, but I think the book could have been 50 pages shorter and still summarized earlier events. It got to the point where I was just skimming large sections of the first half of the book because there wasn't anything going on other than backstory (I almost put it down and started something else, never a good sign). After the first half, things did get better though, and I still look forward to the next installment!

HASH(0x97ed7414) out of 5 stars very fun - parents of teens & tweens should preview the love scene May 5 2010
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
This book--and entire series--is quite enjoyable, with a sassy, funny heroine.

I just have one quick note for parents whose daughters are reading this series--this particular novel does have a (single) love scene that skillfully avoids any taboo words, but is certainly more detailed than any of the previous novels, so if you're concerned about what your children are reading, you may want to evaluate whether that particular scene is appropriate for your child.

HASH(0x97ed7030) out of 5 stars Bewitched & Bemused Feb. 25 2011
By msorensen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
No Spoilers or summaries- I will advise you to READ THE BOOKS IN ORDER- the stories are all consecutive and though Ms. Shearin does a fair amount of recap and back story in each one, it's just better to have experienced it. Start with Magic Lost, Trouble Found.

BOTTOM LINE: This wasn't the very best book in the series so far, but it doesn't disappoint. If you are a fan of Raine and her ridiculous antics, then this will be as satisfying as anything else.

LOVE TRIANGLE: It's true- progress was made with the love triangle thing and it was low key. It felt natural and right- and such a relief. Though I will admit that I wished there was a bit more steam and sexual tension in this book. This is the book where the tension BREAKS, which is always bitter sweet.

CHARACTERS: I couldn't have asked for more. We get more Mychael. We see some character development with Tam. Paris and Talon are, as usual, troublemakers, but even there we see even more how much heart they provide the story and the main characters. The bond between Raine, Mychael and Tam both strengthens in some ways and lessens in others. Raine's Dad and other family become more vivid and important.

PLOT: Oddly complicated- it works for the most part, but it was almost as if there were two different story lines and it got confusing in some places and wasn't entirely resolved.

Seriously, though, I think I smiled through the entire book. This series in general just makes me HAPPY and this book lived up to my expectations.

RECOMMENDATIONS:
1. Ilona Andrew's gritty, post-apocalyptic magic vs technology world: Magic Bites (Kate Daniels, Book 1)
2. Patricia Brigg's skinwalker/were/shifter centric Moon Called (Mercy Thompson)
3. Karen Chance's two highly energetic, very sexy vamp series Touch the Dark (Cassandra Palmer, Book 1) and the related series (start reading Cassandra's series first) Midnight's Daughter (Dorina Basarab, Dhampir, Book 1)
4. Jeaniene Frost's vamp mystery packed with action Halfway to the Grave (Night Huntress, Book 1)
5. Kim Harrison's witch/vamp/pixie team of private eyes in Dead Witch Walking (The Hollows, Book 1)
6. Faith Hunter's more ethereal, less tangible, but still riveting series Bloodring (Rogue Mage, Book 1)
7. Seanan McGuire's fae-private eye series Rosemary and Rue (October Daye, Book 1)
8. C.E. Murphy's creative use of culture Urban Shaman (The Walker Papers, Book 1)
9. Michelle Sagara's fantasy series focused on a young impetuous heroine surrounded by breathtaking magic and deadly creatures Cast in Shadow (The Chronicles of Elantra, Book 1)
