Brain-eating fungi, wannabe sorcerers, long-lost relations-does even a hard-core witch stand a chance? Mad sorcerers, psychic vampires, an army of vengeful demons, Marla Mason would rather face them all than a flesh-and-blood ghost from her dysfunctional family past: her con artist brother, Jason. As Felport's chief sorcerer, Marla would ordinarily consider it her duty to protect her town from such an unscrupulous ne'er-do-well. As his sister, things are a lot...trickier. Now, as Marla attempts to train an apprentice oracle whose magical wires have gotten crossed, Jason is setting up an elaborate sting and drawing her ever-so-corruptible partner Rondeau into the ruse. Their patsy is a filthy-rich wannabe mage and their bait is something so valuable, so dangerous, so sought after, it probably doesn't exist. But now word's gotten out that the Borrichius spores do exist and instead of a sucker Jason and Rondeau have a much bigger-and much deadlier-fish on their line: a reclusive sorcerer whose devotion to the mushroom god and command of vegetal magic could bring a fungal apocalypse to Felport. It'll be the mother of all bad trips unless Marla can pull off the ultimate magical switcheroo...and somehow live to tell about it.… (mer)

Spell Games is the fourth of the Marla Mason novels by T.A. Pratt.

Plot:
As usual, Marla has her hands full, even with Rondeau by her side and while training B. But then her brother Jason makes an appearance to make her hands even fuller. Jason is charming, smart and a con artist. And he and Marla have a difficult history. Now he’s there and he is planning something. Still, if it had just been Jason, Marla could have probably juggled things easily. But in a city like Felport, there is never just one thing going on.

Spell Games is an exciting entry into the series that has me anxious to learn what will happen next. I enjoyed reading it a lot.

I found the plot of this one a little too predictable, but the consequences still had some impact and some of the secondary characters were delightful (like the coerced messenger who kept trying to annoy his controller enough to get himself killed.) ( )

Wow, what a series so far, this book was great and by far my favourite. The charachters and plot are very well written and addictive. Now just can't wait to see where the next book goes. ( )

I read this book immediately after Dead Reign, and unlike most sequels, this was a new story, with the same characters. When Marla's older con-artist brother rolls into town, he brings Marla into his world of conning rich gentlemen out of their hard earned money, but Marla isn't convinced that he is entirely on the up and up. Add a new apprentice who can read oracles, and chaos rules. This book wasn't as good as the last one. I think the plot was a bit sillier, felt less real. But, the end was heart breaking. I so totally did not see that coming. It takes the world of Marla Mason into darker areas where previous books were lighter. One of the best part of book is homage to other stories including The Once and Future King. T.A. Pratt also even manages to make fun of this current obsession with vampires. This series is highly recommended if you are looking for something lighter than the Dresdan Files by Jim Butcher, but not so annoying as all the chick lit vampire stories that are currently so popular.
