Don’t miss the Book Unboxing!
Magic is no longer a game. It’s real, it’s deadly, it’s inescapable, and it is coming for Sage Cynwrig.
Sage Cynwrig knows her way around a pair of twenty-sided dice and has forgotten more spells than you’ll ever know, but when her mother is killed by a weapon of magical destruction, fantasy merges into a bizarre version of reality.
Her birthmark morphs into the Tree of Life. Her boss goes full troll; we’re talking warts and all. Don’t even get her started on the playboy vampire who won’t take ‘no’ for an answer. Oh, and Sage is pretty sure the shadows have come alive, and are stalking her in the darkness. Worst. Day. Ever!
Just when she thinks things can’t get any weirder a supernatural pick-up artist, claiming to work for the A.S.S.E.T. agency, tries to kill her.
They’re all after one thing: The Weapon of Magical Destruction. And Sage is the last living link to it.
Combining elements of Agents of SHIELD with The Magicians and Supernatural, the Agents of A.S.S.E.T. book series is a Fantasy Thriller aimed at readers who enjoy a healthy dose of snarky comedy peppered with pop culture Easter eggs.

Heidi’s Hot Take:
I love the first book in the Agent of Asset Series and look forward to reading more. Sage is such a fun and sassy character. I love her reluctant heroine role and how she is able to overcome it because she really does want to be a heroine, she just feels like she cannot stack up to her mother. The world-building is at once unique, yet hits all the sweet tropes that an urban fantasy fan craves.
I found Sage so deeply relatable. Reeling from the sudden and poorly explained loss of her mom, then having a lot of very weird experiences left her properly paranoid and untrusting. Every instinct she had was exactly what I would’ve thought and done. It is SO RARE for me to find a character like that, one that I feel connected to so deeply. There are characters who I enjoy- who make me laugh, who I admire, who I “get” why they do what they do even though I completely disagree and would never do it myself. But to find a character who reflects my inner sense of self so clearly is virtually unheard of. She is definitely a lot more open with her sass than I am in real life, but my internal monologue is disturbingly similar.
I cannot wait to get the rest of the books in the series. I rarely buy series in bulk, generally taking my time with each book to make sure it is a good fit, but this one has me sold. Want to check out the series? The author has them for sale on her website.
Until next time,
