Overview

Allison Beckstrom’s talent for tracking spells has put her up against some of the darkest elements in the world of magic. But she’s never faced anything like this.

Magic itself has been poisoned, and Allie’s undead father may have left the only cure in the hands of a madman. Hunted by the Authority—the secret council who enforces the laws–wanted by the police, and unable to use magic, she’s got to find the cure before the sickness spreads beyond any power to stop it.

But when a death magic user seeks to destroy the only thing that can heal magic, Allie and her fellow renegades must stand and fight to defend the innocent and save all magic…

Don't miss this seried. Each book offers a fresh take on magic, a superb evolvong mystery, and a moving love story all while pitting good against evil. Each charcter is vivid, nearly three demensional. Not many authers can create, build, and sustain a fictional world across several books. While each book is riviting this addition in particular is outstanding. I deeply enjoy an auther who bring a tale vividly alive and vibrant, keeping me breathless with with expectation and excitement, and rivited to each page. There is no predictability just a freshness that is not often found in fantacy these days. I eagerly look forward to the next installment. I cannot recomend this series highly enough, don't miss out and do begin with the first, Magic in the Bone.

Allie and friends must escape those in control of the local Authority who want to stop them from preventing the spread of tainted magic which is killing the people of Portland.  An exciting story filled with epic action and heroic acts of love and self-sacrifice, but it felt like there was a bit too much spinning of the wheels in anticipation of the final confrontation.

I really hate 20 pages of sample that dont contain a single line of story.

I have read so many trilogies and series dedicated to sci-fi, fantasy, romance and drama! But, Devon Monk's...Allie Beckstrom series is a reviting roller coaster ride of action, drama, believable magic, tangled relationships and authentic spiritual, emotional & physical romance!!! "Magic without Mercy" had my stomach, my heart and my panties in a bunch! I laughed as well from the one liners from the characters. The last chapters had my tears falling hard. My husband came into our bedroom then climbed into the bed then passed me tissues as a read the last 15 pages! He said that book must be good that you are crying that hard. He then ask for me to tell him about it! Anyone who enjoys any of the genres I mentioned earlier will find this series spellbinding! Eve M.
