"Dark and pure paranormal urban fantasy, this is a series that is definitely not to be missed"
Nothing is free when you use magic. Allie Beckstrom knows
that better than anyone and has had to pay the price
before. Migraines and memory loss is just a small payment
but her job requires her to use magic so she suffers the
consequences. Tracing illegal spells back to their maker is
Allie's job as a Hound and it is something she doesn't want
to give up.
So when the police ask for Allie's help she is happy about
getting a pay check. On the other hand the person doing the
asking has a bad reputation with Hounds so Allie is a
little cautious. So when the trail she is following pulls
her into a deeper world of magic and hounding that she
hasn't seen before, she realises she will need more than
magic to come back out of it alive.
Magic to the Bone was a spectacular read and this second
part Magic in the Blood was just as special. One
thing that stands out about these books is the new original
angle. This series has only just begun but I can tell it is
building up to something more. Little pieces of info here
and there and the cliffhanger ending made sure that I will
be following this series for as far as it goes and with the
development Allie is making that could be a long time.
Dark and pure paranormal urban fantasy, this is a series
that is definitely not to be missed. With so many great new
releases out right now I am sure people will be fed up of
my more than positive reviews. However right now it is
Paranormal Urban Fantasy heaven as far as new releases are
concerned and I am enjoying every page of it!
