WHEN A GAME OF CHANCE BECOMES A FIGHT FOR SURVIVAL.

Simon Hunt is a masterful Mage when it comes to knives, solving puzzles, and women. But when a Mageri Councilman asks for a personal favor, his skills are put to the test. He reluctantly accepts the impossible job of training a young Learner who is beyond anyone's help. She's beautiful, cunning, and disabled. If he succeeds, he'll receive a hefty paycheck. But if he fails, more is at stake than merely his reputation.

A compelling tale about two lost souls with dark secrets and the unique connection they share. Simon is her last hope... and perhaps she is his.

Has Simon finally met his match?

I love this whole world the author has created. I read the seven series first which I really enjoyed but I think I liked the mageri series more. Simon was my favorite from the moment he made an appearance. The story was perfect and all I want now is another book. I want to know more about Justus and the rest of the gang....LD

I have read every one of Dannika Darks books and she never fails to keep her readers entertained. I was hoping she would at some point bring pieces of the mageri series back and she did. This book was amazing and let her readers get to know Simon Hunt and what was really in his past. I got so caught up in his story I couldn't put the book down. There were so many surprises in this book, things I never expected to happen. Once you read this book, you understand why Simon is the way he is and it makes you love him all over again. That seems to happen every time I read Dannikas books. I can read these books over and over and feel the same way each time. It never gets tiring. She makes me anxious for the next book(s) to be released. Once you start reading her books you will wonder why you didn't find them sooner. If you haven't read the mageri series first, I highly recommend doing so.

Risk is by Dannika Dark and is part of the Mageri series. It is a stand alone book but it would help your understanding of the world she has created if you have read the Mageri series first. I loved that we got to visit with all the characters I fell in love with in that series, namely Silver and Logan. I have loved Logan since he was first introduced and I still felt myself sigh all over again when he was brought back. But this book is about Simon Hunt. We all fell in love with him and his sexy swagger, British accent, love of all things leather and board games. So I was thrilled that he was going to get his own book. It’s been several months since Simon has worked. But now the council is formally asking if he will meet with Hannah Freund. Hannah wishes to hire Simon to give some additional training to a learner of hers. Simon has never trained a female learner before but in addition to that, this learner has a disability. She is deaf. And her training with Hannah, her creator, has come to a standstill. Ella Freund has been with Hannah for several years. She was excelling with her training up until the accident that took her hearing. Now she doesn’t seem to progress any more. Hannah keeps Ella sealed away, keeping her deafness a secret. When Ella and Simon begin working together, Ella blossoms. His technique might be unusual but she is progressing in leaps and bounds. Right away, they discover that they share a special bond, a special way to communicate that she doesn’t share with anyone else. “Simon was the antithesis of men she’d dated in the past, and yet she was drawn to him in an inexplicable way.” But someone has been following them. Ella’s life is in danger and they can’t figure out why. And, Hannah seems to be making some decisions regarding Ella’s future. The bond between Ella and Simon grows stronger. They share secrets of their pasts that they haven’t shared with anyone else. There comes a time when Simon is in a life or death situation when he is forced to face his own past, his fears and nightmares. It broke my heart to see him have to suffer through that. But in the end, I wonder if it wasn’t freeing in some way as well. “Chains aren’t the only shackles that bind a prisoner.” This was such a good book and I loved Simon and Ella. It was suspenseful and intense. I only wish that there was more of the romance between Simon and Ella. I wanted a better feel of where they were going to end up. But all in all, I loved the book and totally enjoyed getting both more of Simon but also getting updates on all my beloved characters. So if you loved the Mageri series, I definitely think you will enjoy this as well.

I love Simon. I have loved him from the beginning. This book is wonderful! Dark and mysterious with humor thrown all around. If you haven't already read the Mageri series read that first.

I've Read all of Dannika Dark's Books And I have to say After Logan Simon is my favorite Male character of hers closely followed by Austin of Course. Loved the story and the return of Ella. BUT it left me wanting more. There is nothing wrong with that, of Course, but it makes for a Long wait For our next qlimpse into Simon's Life. All in All Another Smashing hit!

I love the Mageri series and this new book is an amazing closer look at Simon and all his quirky glory (and a peek at the ongoing lives of our favorite Cognito residents too). Can't wait to read more!!!
