Overview

For most of her life, Allison Beckstrom has used magic and accepted the heavy price it exacts. But now that all magic is poisoned, it’s no longer just using people—it’s killing them.

With Portland about to descend into chaos, Allie needs to find a way to purify the wells of tainted magic beneath the city. But the only options left to her are grim: attempt to close down magic forever, or follow her father’s plan to set magic into the right hands—even though she’s learned to never trust his word.

Now, Allie will have to make a choice and face the darkness of her own deepest fears, before time runs out for them all…

I would think Allie and Zay's story could stand 2-3 more episodes. .

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 .

Best series. A must read.

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.

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.

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.
