    BookWhisperer Review: Magic on the Hunt by Devon Monk

    The Allie Beckstrom series has been a well loved favorite personally for The BookWhisperer over the past few years. Allie is a very entertaining character; that while obviously not bullet proof she has the courage and power of even the strongest characters. With the circumstance of the fifth book I had concerns as the the future of Allie and Zay, and just what would be the repercussions of giving her magic for his life. It appears with this novel that she is not at a disadvantage with the lack of some of her own power. Although, much of this could be contributed to the fact that Allie's father is taking up residence in her body. Allie seems to be learning even more magic with the help of her father. I am beginning to wonder if he is truly the monster that we have believed over the past five books. The Allie Beckstrom series is more action packed novels with a slightly twist of romance. Zay and Allie continue to love and fight their way through the novels, but at times the lack of intimacy can be frustrating. Zay is a very closed character that true emotion is shown few and far between. This novel was a slightly slower pace than the past novels. I am fairly concerned that this is a preview as to the direction of future novels, and hope that the next novel restores my faith.

    The sixth Magic urban fantasy is a superb tale

    Having done the impossible when they escaped death's realm through the gate (see Magic at the Gate) lovers Allie Beckstrom and Zayvion Jones desperately need some R&R. However, being back in Portland does not denote safe recuperation. Instead Authority leader Sedra's top assistant Dane Lanister arrives with weapons aimed to kill.

    He threatens killing Jones and tearing Allie apart limb by limb until she informs him where Jingo Jingo took the kidnapped Sedra as he believes her father's consciousness inside of Allie's brain will know. At the same time, Dane threatens torture and death, magic practitioner Leander escaped from death's realm, but needs a body to host his essence and believes he has found one in a prisoner locked in the Authority's jail. No time for the weary as Beckstrom and Jones must find Sedra and prevent Leander from causing hell to come to Portland.

    The sixth Magic urban fantasy is a superb tale that has the heroic duet running around trying to prevent two disasters from occurring. Without Sedra, the Authority Council will not just fall apart, but will fight for control. Leander poses a different but as dire a threat at a time when the Council is internally headless. Readers will enjoy trekking the streets of Portland with Beckstrom and Jones who believe they must have brought a bit of death back with them.

    Good book

    I really enjoyed this book. My only issue is how the HELL spirits could be more powerful than the living!

    I am rather addicted to this series. Devon has such a great cast of characters. I am truly in love with Shamus Flynn aka Shame.


    This instalment in the series has Terric, Shame, Zay and Allie pretty much together the whole book and I likey.


    I just love how loyal Shame is. He is such a great guy, smart mouthed, funny and will do anything for Terric. Now this whole thing that’s going on between these two Soul Compliments.....well...what is going on? I think I want them to get IT going on, like truly there is just SOMETHING between these two guys.


    Daniel still has me totally muddled to his whole purpose of being in Allie’s head and his motives and ????? We learn more in this book, but I am truly none the wiser if he is appearing to be this father who would throw Allie under the nearest bus if it got him to what he was trying to achieve or if he isn’t that bad and we are all misinterpreting him. This is still a mystery to me. I have always kept my mind open to us being led down a garden path and Daniel actually for the greater good and not the total douche bag of a father that he can come across as. Violet must have seen something in him.


    Violet and Kevin, I want to know more about them. Kevin intrigues me.


    Zayvion is still the most gorgeous guy , it’s a no brainer at this stage that he and Allie are there for the long haul. I don’t have this fear of them breaking up like in the earlier books. I know all this Soul Compliment stuff doesn’t usually fair well for the couples in the long run, but I think these two will be ok. I would have liked them to have been closer in this book. I know they are in love and he is very protective of Allie, but his emotions sometimes can be a little wooden. I know he has a big job to handle, but .....


    Now back to Shame......I literally look forward to reading about him and Terric, more so Shame. He is written very well and I love what comes out of his mouth. He is a rebel with a cause.


    I just burn through these books, I simply love them.


    And then there is my guy who is just the cutest...Stone. I so want one of these. I love how Shamus brought over Jenga for Stone. HA!! teaching him how to play. Just the happiness in Stone when he can stack , build things. He always seems to appear when somebody needs protecting who is vulnerable.


    The box of Allie’s dreams locked in Daniel’s safe..hmmm...my brain is going to an obvious deduction there, due to what we find out in this book, but then I could be totally sniffing down the wrong road.

    Definitely a must read if you like Allie and her crew

    The plot thickens. This is definitely not a stand-alone book. Monk has continued with her convulted plot line and has made the storyline quite fascinating. I won't give any details but suffice it to say that that Allie's life has gone from bad to worst. Try it - I think you will like and will be waiting for the next book.
