    Wraps up the series

    This final book in the Allie BeckStrom Magic story was a great finale. Lots of remaining issues were resolved and dealt with in interesting ways. I liked the series and wish Allie (and Devon Monk) the best .

    There is no sample!

    The "sample" for this book is 17 pages of critics commentary and no actual story. No prolog, no forward, just critics reviews and publication information. If this is the attitude that is offered to potential customers then I see no reason to Invest my coin in their coffers.

    One of the Best Urban Fantasy Series

    Allie and her allies must stop evil spirits who control the head of the world Authority before they can destroy everyone and everything.  Quite a bit of the plot becomes busywork before the final showdown.  Still, one of the best urban fantasy series I’ve ever read.

    outstanding read

    I've just finishesd by staying up til the wee hours of the night. I love this book! Many items are clarified and relationships developed. We learn more about things that at least I questioned. I am a sap ao I did cry at the end... I like it when it all comes together no matter how it ends. The book is definitely worth getting and enjoying.
