    A great continuation of the Allie Beckstrom story

    This is a great read and should be a definite read for fans of this series. However, since this book picks up right at the conclusion of "Magic in the Blood" ended, it is strongly recommended to start at the beginning of the series with "Magic to the Bone".

    Magic in the Shadows

    I strongly suggest you read the previous books in this series (Magic to the Bone and Magic in the Blood) in order, before reading this book. This story picks up right where Magic in the Blood leaves off. Allie Beckstrom's life has been invaded. She has gone from a life of intentional solitude, too having a full plate overflowing with family, obligations, responsibilities and friends. Allie's father has come back from the dead in spirit and created a little pocket of existence for himself in Allie's mind. Unfortunately for Allie, she became aware of this horrific fact while she's getting ready for a date with Zayvion; talk about awkward. Who wants their dad along with them on a date with a guy they are lusting after? Daniel Beckstrom is still as magically powerful in death, as he was when he was alive. He is so powerful, that on occasion, he deliberately takes control over Allie's body. Allie's life gets even more complicated when she realizes she is being stalked by an undead. A creature that was a former human being, but has magically been turned into..something else. The Authority follows through with their threat of testing Allie's magically ability and decides whether Allie's memories of how to use magic should be "closed" or not. Keeping her promise to Pike, Allie becomes accountable for Hounds, regardless of how disgruntle they are. I really enjoyed this installment. Devon Monk has done an amazing job of weaving together many sides of a dark and dangerous world, where magic exist and is accessible to everyone. Although the cost for the magical usage is high, the possibilities for its uses are endless. The relationship between Allie and all the supporting characters was fun and full of delightfully twisted humor. Allie has really grown as a person since the first book. She is still reckless but she now has a sought of maturity that was missing before. For those Allie and Zayvion fans, this installment is a must read! There is plenty of fantastic interaction between Allie and Zay as a couple. Although they still drive each other crazy, they are interesting, stubborn and mysterious enough that they will never get bored with one another. This installment was action packed, loaded with magic, exciting and creative. I highly recommend this book and entire series to fellow dark urban fantasy readers and I look forward to the next book Magic on the Strom due out 5/4/2010.

    Devon Monk has a great series that sub-genre fans will want to read.

    Magic has been a bane for Allison Beckstrom, a Hound who tracks down abusers of the innocent, thanks mostly because of her father Daniel. She has buried her sorcerer dad twice and prays this is the end of him as every time he comes back her troubles exponentially multiply. However that prayer fails when somehow her late dad entered her mind trying to take control. Her sudden increase in power worries the Authority who tries to help her cope with her skills.

    Additionally her soul mate Zayvion Jones seems to have vanished from much of her mind because holes in her memory have been punched through due to magical usage. They begin their relationship anew while a necromorph stalks Allie to get at her father's imbedded power.

    The second Beckstrom urban fantasy (see Magic to the Bone) is a fascinating thriller filled with action including the demands of dear dead dad but anchored in reality by little thinks like traffic, door locks, and WD-40. Allie is terrific as she struggles with her father over who controls her bodily senses, which in turn impact who controls the mind and body. On top of that an adversary knows and wants control. Just another few days in the life of a beleaguered Hound assaulted from without and within; her only ally is Zay and she barely recognizes him but feels the affinity and attraction in spite of her late father's efforts to kill their feelings. Devon Monk has a great series that sub-genre fans will want to read.

    Cliff hanger for the next one

    The momentum was better than the second book of the series. Good read. Can't read "Magic In The Bone" without reading the second "Magic in The Blood", and finishing with "Magic in the Shadow."
