"once you start reading, you won't be able to stop"
Allie Beckstrom has just buried her father for the second
time and this time she is pretty sure he is dead. That is
until she starts hearing him in her head. Seeing as how she
didn't really get on with her father when he was alive,
Allie isn't over the moon about him living inside of her.
How he managed to get into her mind is something she
doesn't understand, but she is keen to find out so she can
get rid of her unwanted guest.
Being a Hound isn't easy, but Allie is using her gift to
track down the bad guys. However, the use of magic has
taken its toll on her and there is also a bad side effect,
memory loss. So with the help of the Authority, Allie is
trying to find out more about her powers and how to control
them. All she needs is some time away from the job so she
can concentrate. Unfortunately that isn't going to happen
Book three in the Allie Beckstrom series is just as
delicious as the previous two books. The story is coming
along well and the originality that I loved so much about
this series isn't fading at all. If anything, this series
is becoming more and more unique as it goes along.
Action packed and full of magic, this series is really
starting to hit the Kim Harrison and Kelley Armstrong
level. Deep, dark and addictive! And with a great leading
lady this series really does have everything. The Urban
Paranormal Fantasy genre has so many newbies popping up all
over the place, but this is one that really does deserve
the time of day and night. If you are anything like me,
once you start reading, you won't be able to stop.
Give Devon Monk a chance and try the Allie Beckstrom
series. You will not be disappointed but make sure you
start at the beginning. Final thought about this book? I,
so, want a gargoyle too!
