  • Lakiesha says:

    I hate you so much! By hate I mean love, I CAN NOT stop reading the books. I have the biggest book hangover ever. I almost lost it, in the first book after Rose’s death and Aedans sacrifice. I just can’t get over it.

  • Layla says:

    • bcburgess says:

      Thank you, Layla! LOVE your name! Less the 2 mnths and book 4 should be out. I’m about to release the preview on my blog. πŸ™‚

  • Kris says:

    I adore everything about Layla and Quin. I have read all three books and am in love! Excellent storyline and vivid description of the range of emotions. I am moved by the complexity of the feelings that stir within Layla and cannot wait for books 4 and 5. And of course I am in search of my own personal Qwinwin. πŸ˜‰

    Happy writing and thank you for the great read!

    • bcburgess says:

      Hi, Kris! So glad you’re feeling the emotion, because that was always my intent – to take readers on an emotional ride. Oh, and if you find yourself a Qwinwin, please tell me where so I can run and get one. πŸ˜‰

  • Kim Jufer says:

    I have absolutely loved this series! This is one of those series that keeps you on edge where you can’t wait to see what happens next! I can’t wait for more!!! Thank you πŸ™‚

    • bcburgess says:

      Hi, Kim! Thanks for stopping by my website. So glad you’re enjoying the series. Book 4 should be out in less than two months!

  • vicki says:

    I love all of your books and I cant wait for the next one! I could hardly stop reading to get anything done! πŸ˜‰ The way you describe everything is like you have lived it. I want to crawl inside the book and live there! Thank you so much for writing such a wonderful story. I am waiting not so patiently for the fourth book. πŸ™‚

    • bcburgess says:

      Thank you, Vicki! I do kind of feel like I’ve been living in that world in my spare time for several years now. I’m so glad I can take readers with me. πŸ™‚

  • Elissa says:

    Your books are wonderful…I could not tear myself away! Book one was hard for me to get through while wiping tears from my eyes and blowing my nose! The story of Laylas parents sent me through every emotion possible πŸ™‚ You write beautifully and I look forward to reading more….

    • bcburgess says:

      Thank you, Elissa! I know it sounds cruel, but I love hearing I made people cry. ^_^ So glad you’re connecting with the story!

  • Aida says:

    The best series of books I’ve ever read. I couldn’t put my paperwrite down. CAN’T WAIT FOR BOOK 4. You are truly blessed, what a gift, I have recommended your books to everyone I know and not one person has beeen disappointed. Thank you for sharing,,,,,

    • bcburgess says:

      Thank YOU for sharing, Aida! I love that the series has grabbed you and that you’re enjoying the journey with your friends. πŸ™‚

  • Christina says:

    I just read all three books of the Mystic Series for the second time after picking it up a couple of weeks ago. I can’t get enough of the amazing adventure that Layla and Quin began. I’m super stoked for the fourth book to come out and am anxiously awaiting for it’s debut. I’m hoping the next book will decode some of the riddles/lack of elaboration that was left from Finley as well as seeing how much further Layla can push her magical skills.

    • bcburgess says:

      It’s always an honor when someone re-reads the books! <3 Glad you like them so much. Oh, and you'll definitely see Layla push her magical skills in Retribution. πŸ™‚

  • Ginny says:

    I love and adore the series. Thank you for writing them. I enjoyed stepping off reality and landing in their world. Its a nice getaway.

    I am an Okie too, born in Bartlesville, with family scatter in the state. I’m not living there now.

    So close for the new release. I’ll be snatching one up!

  • Brandy says:

    This is an amazing series! Like many others I couldn’t put them down now I’m itching for the next book:) you are an amazing author please keep the books coming I will purchase anything you write:)

    • bcburgess says:

      Thank you, Brandy! I’m glad you’re enjoying the series. I’m working on Destruction now… well, you know, when I get off the internet. πŸ˜‰

  • Joy says:

    Just finished sobbing through Rose and Aedan’s tragic story. I am worn out and emotionally spent. I lost my husband to cancer so I felt the pain and grief they experienced. I will definitely be reading the other books in the series when I recover. (and buy more Puffs Plus) πŸ™‚

    • bcburgess says:

      I’m so sorry you lost your husband, Joy. Cancer is a real-life bad guy that claims way too many lives. I am, however, happy that you connected to Descension. I hope you enjoy the others as well. πŸ™‚

  • Hannah says:

    I loved all four books!!! I can’t get enough of Quin and Layla and Alana and their families!!! Oh how I love that cute little munchkin! *sigh* I can’t wait until the fifth book and hope you never stop writing about them!

    • bcburgess says:

      Hi, Hannah! I’m glad you’re enjoying the series. And yes, Alana is too cute and so much fun to be around. Once Layla’s story wraps up (6-7 books), there will be spin-off options. I’ll explore those possibilities more down the road, but it’s nice to know that if I want to keep writing about the Mystic world, I can… and I just might. πŸ˜‰

      • shonda morris says:

        @Bcburgess, your reply just made my night! good to know its not ending anytime soon! I love this series and I read a lot of series and just when you get attached to characters the story ends- its a let down! I would love love love 6 or 7 books and possibly a spin off! I am getting my sisters to read now so I can call and discuss them!

  • Patty says:

    just finished the 4th book loved all 4 can’t wait for the 5th one

  • shelene baker says:

    I love to read but this set has to be my all time favorite! I just finished book 4 and even though it was longer it still only took me 3 days!!! I solo cant wait till book 5. I will be one of the first to read it!!!
    thank you for such an emotion adventure ive read in a long time. I never cry when I read and I cried like crazy with these!!
    Keep up the good work!
    Love them!!!

    • bcburgess says:

      Thank you, Shelene! I’m glad you’re connecting to the series. And I’m so happy you joined us in The Mystic Coven on FB. I love that group so much and we have a blast. <3

  • Cat says:

    I read the 1st 4 books in a week, loved them! I went to work tired after the 1st book because I couldn’t stop reading until I finished plus I cried a good portion of the book, I haven’t cried from a book since Dumbledore died! This story is so beautiful! I thought the story was going to end after the 4th, but yeah it continues……..but when??? Ive been gushing about this series at work, I read 75% paranormal romance, I love them & sometimes hats them for the way the female acts, & while Layla has her insecurities like most girls, hers were never annoying, I never felt myself getting mad at her. & then there’s Quinn, he ‘s definitely topped the book boyfriend list! Everything you’ve done with this series has been so enjoyable and emotional, and I love how much the family has been envolved with the story. This is one series that just doesn’t belong on my kindle but also on my book shelf, id be lost if the world lost power & I didn’t have my favorite stories to continue to read & share. Cant wait for more of your great story telling πŸ™‚

    • bcburgess says:

      Hi, Cat! I love that you’re so invested in the series and loving the characters. I’m working full time on Destruction. It will release in the spring. πŸ™‚

  • Gary Clark says:

    I stumbled upon your 1st book and thought I would give it a read. Before I knew it book 1, 2 and 3 were done. I started the series about 2 weeks ago, so after finishing the 3rd I thought I would have to waiting for the 4th. Did not realize I was behind in this series. Book 4 was great then I get to end and you throw me a curve ball with book 5!!!!! Can’t wait for it to come out!!! Team Layla here!!

  • says:

    I have loved this story! You have a vivid and beautiful imagination. Thankyou for finding that talent and sharing it with us all!! Can’t wait for next book!!?? Is there a ne5 book!!????? Lisa

    • bcburgess says:

      Thank you, Lisa! I love sharing my imagination with readers and taking people on Layla’s journey! There will be a book 5, and a 6, and there’s a chance there will be a 7 and a novella. Book 5 will release spring 2014. πŸ™‚

  • Rana says:

    I just discovered your series and it’s been two days and I am beyond hooked and on the third book!!! Loooooooove it!!!! You are an amazing writer!!

  • Kathy says:

    I had to find the area to make a comment. The first book left me hungry and thirsty for more. I have never read any other book that fast. I became addicted and within a week and a half I had already all four books and looking for the fifth. You are so precise the way you formulate your stories from beginning to end. I have stayed up way past midnight, neglected duties just to read the next chapter. I go with them on the highs and lows and the missing fire in my loins have been returned. I must admit there were a few times my jaws dropped and I felt embarrassed but then regained my composure. Great series, can you please keep it going?

    • bcburgess says:

      Love this comment, Kathy! Thank you for taking the time to write it. And yes, I absolutely plan to keep going. Book 5 will release in spring of 2014, and there will for sure be a 6th, and possibly a 7th and a novella. πŸ™‚

  • This is my favorite series of books thus far. I would really like to get an advanced readers copy for a review if possible for book 5. I read all four of the books within about 2 weeks & now I wish I would have read them slower so I wouldn’t be going through the Layla & Quin withdraw. Keep writing you are amazingly talented!!

  • Kathy says:

    Thanks B.C for the sneak peak of destruction but I am losing my mind waiting. This is one year I am rushing to end and get on the way so spring can get here. Such a great series. You are very talented by the way; matter of fact, beyond talented.

  • Rachael Robinson says:

    I just wanted to comment to say I absolutely adore your books, when I first started reading them I bought the other right after one another. You truly do really have a magical gift of writing and creativeness, and your imagination knows no bounds! I love it! The whole story of Layla and Quin just reaches out to myself and other readers alike, as your books are the only magic we have πŸ™‚ And I would just like to say I am actually attempting to write a book myself inspired by you, but as I have an over-active imagination, I have decided to put it to good use, hopefully it’ll go somewhere!

    Keep up the fantastic work! Can’t wait for the other books!

    • bcburgess says:

      Hi, Rachael! I’m so happy to hear I’ve inspired you! And thank you so much for the lovely compliments. Hope the writing is going well. πŸ™‚

  • Amanda H says:

    I bought your book on a whim because it had great reviews through Amazon and WOW! I absolutely love the way you write. I love getting lost in this fantastic world. I read the first 2 books in under 24 hours and am about to start the 3rd book! I would love to read Quin’s side, there really are no words to describe him, thank you for such beautiful writing with amazing characters and a unique story!

  • PEGGY SMITH says:

    I have enjoyed all four of the books in this series. I have been waiting for the fifth book. I find them so very enjoyable. I have found no other series books that have held my I retest like these. Thank you for writing them.

  • Jackie says:

    I truly enjoy this series….when can I get my hands on book 5?? πŸ™‚

  • Rubi Reiger says:

    LOVED THESE BOOKS. I read all 4 books in for days. Could not put them down and am looking forward to book five. Any idea when it will be released? How many books are there in the series? Keep up the great work!

    • bcburgess says:

      Hi, Rubi! Glad you’re loving the series. There will probably be 8 or 9 installments. Books 5 and 6 will release on May 22nd. Two books in one day!

  • Carissa says:

    I love your books! Just wondering if you have a release date for book 5 yet?

    • bcburgess says:

      Hi, Carissa! Thanks for writing. And I do you have a release date! Books 5 AND 6 will release on May 22nd. πŸ™‚

  • Sherrie Brown says:

    Wow! What a series. I just finished reading all four books in one week. I can not wait for the next one. I wasn’t sure I would like the books, but I was wrong I loved them. They are a perfect match of mystery, romance and action. Definitely worth reading.

  • Paula Moeller says:

    Hi B.C.

    I just finished all four books. I am lucky to have only recently found them as my wait is much shorter for the next installments. I’ve already preordered the next. I hope you are making a wonderful living on your writing, Your gift is providing entertainment and escape for all of us. Keep the fantasy coming. It’s beautiful.

  • Melanie says:

    I would love to own these books in hardcover but I can only find ebooks or paperback. Any chance I can find these soon?

    • bcburgess says:

      Hi, Melanie! Unfortunately, they’re not available in hardback, but hopefully they will be someday. Fingers crossed! And thanks for writing. πŸ™‚

  • Mackenzie Baker says:

    I just finished books 5&6. And they were AMAZING. I was wondering if you have a good start on the 7th and was possibly wondering when you thoug it might be out?
    Great job on the writing.

    • bcburgess says:

      Thanks, Mackenzie! Glad you enjoyed them! I do have a good start on 7, but I’m not getting to work on it much with my son on summer break. The good news is I’m getting a chance to play around with some bonus material, which I hope to publish in a companion guide between now and book 7’s release, so keep an eye out for news about that. πŸ™‚

  • Juliana says:

    Totally blown away by your mystic series! I’m a law student stuck reading lots of stuff that I HAVE to read- your writing has become my guilty pleasure! It is a true escape for me! Something I WANT and look forward to reading! I just devoured books five and six in one day- is there a seventh? Layla’s story can not be finished!

    • bcburgess says:

      Hi, Juliana! Thanks for commenting. Sorry it’s taken me so long to reply. I have been in my writing cave. I’m still working on book 7, and there will be an 8th, maybe even a 9th. Layla’s story isn’t over yet. I don’t have a release date for 7 yet, but I might have news about a Brietta and Kegan project very soon. I love that the Mystic series is your guilty pleasure and true escape. Hopefully I’ll have more for you in the spring.

  • S D Barbre says:

    I just finished the series — I’m hooked! Can’t wait for book 7!

    • bcburgess says:

      Thanks! I’m still writing book 7. Hopefully I’ll have a better idea when it will release in a couple of months. I’ll make an announcement on my blog when I do. πŸ™‚

  • Dylan says:

    Love the series! Ive read all six books that are currently out, in less than a week, just finished devastation a few minutes ago, and im already going into withdrawls. Do you have an ETA for book seven?

    • bcburgess says:

      Hi! I’m dreadfully behind on my website, so the withdraws are probably out of your system now, but hopefully you’re still anticipating the next installment of the Mystic series. Sadly, I don’t have an ETA for 7 yet. I’m still writing it and hope to have a better idea of when it will release by the end of the year. But I might have news on a Brietta and Kegan project in the next month or so!

  • Susie says:

    Please don’t leave me hanging–waiting for #7!! Any ETA for it?
    Thank you very much!

    • bcburgess says:

      I’m sorry I left you hanging, Susie! πŸ™ And I still don’t have an ETA for 7, but I promise I’m working on it. Thank you for your patience. Waiting sucks.

  • Terri Lovelace says:

    Love this series I could not put it down. Very good writing I can’t wait for the next one. Thank You Terri

    • bcburgess says:

      Thank you, Terri! I’m still writing 7. Hopefully I’ll have a better idea when it will release in a couple of months. πŸ™‚

  • Jacqueline Rahn says:

    I just finished Destruction and I am so sad that it’s over! Is there any way to know when other books from this series are done? Like an alert? I would hate to not know! These are by far the most amazing series I have ever read! Please make at least 10 books haha!

    • bcburgess says:

      Hi, Jacqueline. Sorry about the delayed response. I’ve been in a cave writing. I’m still working on 7, so no release date yet, but I hope to have news on a Brietta and Kegan project soon. There are a couple of ways you can keep up w/ my releases. You can subscribe to my blog on this website. I usually blog about new releases (when my scattered brain remembers), so it will zap it to your email. Or you can follow me on Facebook (I have an author page under B. C. Burgess and there’s a Mystic Series Discussion Group) or Twitter – @BCBurgessBooks. I’m very active in the fb discussion group and usually announce news in there first, but I post major announcements like releases to all of them. Oh, and there’s a very good chance the series will be 9 books. At least 8. πŸ™‚

  • Paula havens says:

    Have spent the last couple of weeks reading the first six books in the series. Love the characters and the storyline. Can’t wait to hear when the next installment will be available. Thanks for the lovely distraction!

    • bcburgess says:

      Thanks, Paula! I’m glad the Mystic series has been a lovely distraction for you. I’m still writing 7, but hopefully I’ll have some new release announcements soon. πŸ™‚

  • Ashley says:

    I’m in love with these books. I’m an avid reader. I read a minimum of 2 books a week, sometimes 3 if I’m not working as much. These books definitely rank up in the top series 5 series I’ve ever read. They’re up there with Harry Potter, House of Night & Becca Fitzpatrick’s fallen angel series. I absolutely can’t wait for the 7th book. I’m on the edge of my seat! Thanks for sharing your amazing writing with us! I hope you’ll write more books after this series is complete πŸ™‚

  • Kate says:


    I just found your series and am almost done with book three. I am so glad to hear that Laylas story doesn’t end with six books! Or more! Personally, I think 10-15 books would be killer! Thank you for a wonderful series!

    • bcburgess says:

      Thanks, Kate! I hope you continue to enjoy the series and hope for more! I just released a short Quin novella detailing a day in his life when he was 16. It’s called QUIN, and there will be 2 more episodes released very soon. Hopefully it will give Mystic readers a fix while they wait on book 7. Thanks for writing! πŸ™‚

  • Carolina says:

    I really super love your mystic series. I have read and reread and again reread the series more times than I can count. It’s the way I procrastinate from school. I don’t know how many times I’ve checked this page for any outdates on the 7th book. can wait to find out more about what’s going to happen to benzio and a bunch of other stuff. I have a lot of different scenarios in my head already. I read a lot of book a day to distract me from this series, or else the wait is agonizing. Anyway, I cant wait for the future books. hopefully you’ll have a release date so I can put it on my calendar.

    • bcburgess says:

      Hi, Carolina! I’m so glad you’re enjoying the series. I’m still writing 7, but you might be interested in the Quin serial I’m releasing. There will be 3 parts. QUIN 1 is already available and details a day in his life when he was 16. QUIN 2 will release in a week, and QUIN 3 will be available in 3 weeks. They’re short books w/ 1-3 scenes each. Hopefully that will help satisfy Mystic cravings while I finish up book 7. Thanks for your patience! <3

  • Elisabeth says:

    I love your books. The romance and anxiety! I check constantly for the next installment.

    • bcburgess says:

      Thanks, Elisabeth! I’m so glad you’re loving the story. I’m working on 7 but can’t nail down a release date yet. In the meantime, I’m releasing some side scenes I wrote about Quin’s past, titled QUIN. There will be 3 episodes with 1-3 scenes each. Episode 1 is available now, 2 will release in a week, and 3 will release in 3 weeks. That’s the newest news. Hopefully I’ll have more soon. Thanks so much for visiting my site and leaving a comment! πŸ™‚

  • Cammy says:

    I love love love this series..!! How many more books are you planning for this series.? I can’t wait for the next one to come out. Plz update me. Thank you.!!

  • Tabitha Warren says:

    I’m only 18, but ever since I was little I loved reading, especially the paranormal romance, that was my main category. Vampires, werewolves, witches, you name it, I loved it. Over the years I’ve read A LOT of books my bookshelf can’t even fit anymore on there lol. But I do have to say that of all the books I’ve ever read in my life, The Mystic Series is by far my favorite series of all time. I couldn’t stop reading until I was done and I’m use to reading a book a day. I bought all 6 of them and I know I’ve had to have read them at least 5 times each. Your words are beautiful and I love how much love there is, how the characters respect and love one another and the way they treat each other is beautiful. I love your books so much and I wish the series never had to end but all good things end lol. I can’t wait for the 7th book to come out I’m so excited πŸ™‚ !

  • Athena says:

    I stumbled across your book about 2 weeks ago and try to read only during my downtime at work. Your books had me hooked so badly I nearly forgot to do anything else. I was glued to the next page and when I got to the end of book 6 I was like oh my gosh it cannot be over yet. Searched online and was happy to see more coming along. But the wait is going to drive me crazy. I love fairy and magic stories but I don’t think any compare to the interest I had in your series. I cannot wait patiently for book 7! I might go nuts.

  • Holly says:

    I love these books! I discovered them a little over a week ago and just finished Devotion. Any idea when number 8 will be out? I can’t wait! πŸ™‚ I’ve been telling all my friends these books are a must read πŸ™‚

    • bcburgess says:

      Hi, Holly! Thank you for spreading the word about the series. <3 I'm working on book 8 and hope to have it out in the fall. There will be 9 books in the main series. πŸ™‚

  • Josepha Maines says:

    Just finished #7 can’t wait for more. Please let me know when next one available. Trying to wait patiently.

  • Bethany says:

    I read all 6! Leaving us hanging for so long for what happens next is cruel! You have quite a talent and as such must deliver darling. πŸ™‚ let’s shoot for books 7, 8,9 and10! Releasing 7 by Jan 2016?
    Honestly you must make this into a movie it will blow the other vampire hit movie with “Bella and Edward” out of the water.
    Thank you and your parents and grands for an exceptional imagination !

    • bcburgess says:

      Lol. Thank you, Bethany! I may not be able to release them as fast as you hope, but I’m happy to say there will be a total of 9 books in the main series, plus a Bri & Keg trilogy, and the QUIN prequel, and more spin-offs are possible. I’m late responding so you might already know, but book 7 (Devotion) is already out. I’m working on 8 and hope to release it by the end of the year. πŸ™‚

  • Tina Kidd says:

    Omg!! I just read all 6 books in 3 days! I couldnt put them down. I fell in love with the characters and had tears streaming down my face several times. I cannot wait until book 7 comes out…and 8, 9, 10 ….

  • Angela says:

    I have absolutely fell in love with this series. Quinn and Layla, the family, children, triplets and Benzio. Please indulge me and say that book 8 is on its way. I look forward to reading more, I think that you are an awesome writer.
