I was given an advanced review copy in return for a honest review. Nathaniel Hood is a Watchmage, stationed in New York. This immortal wizard uses the power from Earth elements and Chaos Seeds, which had been formed from dreams, to create magic. The Veil is also generated from those dreams, where all kinds of supernatural creatures pass through and reside in the human world. Nathaniel is the overseer of these Dwellers in the city and handles all matters concerning magic. Police officer Jonas Hood might finally have an interesting case. A baby is mysteriously stolen and magic may have been involved. Seeking the aid of the Watchmage, his father, will Jonas and Nathaniel be able to find out the truth? Who took the baby and why? What danger will they face? All the details and vivid descriptions of the settings, paranormal beings, and magical abilities really made this story captivating. I enjoyed all the mysterious elements. A wonderfully told fantasy. What a magical adventure! - Sarah

Free book for honest review. juliesbookreview.blogspot.com Rating: 4 Stars Fantasy is not my normal genre. I struggle with mythical creatures and keeping them straight. Is there a difference between a pixie and a fairy?? This is why I normally shy away from fanciful creatures in stories. However this novel's main characters are in fact human or at least I am pretty sure Nathaniel is still human despite being a wizard. The story goes back in forth in points of view from Nathaniel to his son Jonas giving the ready two points of view in terms of the investigation. The story centers around a kidnapping of a human child by magical forces. Jonas (a police officer) must team up with his father Nathaniel (a policeman of sorts for magical creatures) to solve the crime and bring the child home. The book is easy to read and follow and kept me engaged in the mystery as it unfolded. I was able to finish it in just a couple days so it is a good length and the story didn't feel drawn out. If you enjoy a good mystery with supernatural aspects this is your book. Ana Elise Meyer Twitter:@AnaEliseMeyer Facebook: www.facebook.com/anaelisemeyer
