How do you keep the people you care about safe from enemies you can’t remember?
Ten years ago, Nate Garrett awoke on a cold warehouse floor with no memory of his past and the only clues to his identity a piece of paper with his name on it and a propensity toward magic. Now he’s a powerful sorcerer and a successful thief for hire, but it turns out that those who stole his memories aren’t done with him yet. When they cause a job to go bad, threatening a sixteen-year-old girl, Nate swears to protect her. But with his enemies closing in and the barrier holding back his memories beginning to crumble, Nate is forced to confront his forgotten life in the hope of stopping an enemy he can’t remember.
Crimes Against Magic is a dark, fast-paced urban fantasy torn between modern-day London and fifteenth-century France.

Wow! Words can't begin to describe how great this book was. As an Amazon prime member you can listen and read the ebook for free. I'm also an audible member and will be getting the next book for sure. It was so unique. It is an intense world and while I don't normally like to read or watch anything where it skips back and forth in the time and the present, I could actually keep up with it doing so in this book. This author's mind is amazing! I loved the weaving in of the Knights of Avelon, Merlin and King Arthur. I hope I got all that right in that sentence. Lol. The description of things in this book was the best I have ever seen. It wasn't too much, just perfect. But it made it so vivid in my mind. The gargoyle may have been a bad guy but the image of him was just awe inspiring. I was listening to this while driving home from work the other night around 1:30am on a deserted windy road that was surrounded by nothing but dark wilderness. This is when I was at the part with the "Nightmare". An actual creature. That made my blood turn to ice. This is a creature I would never imagine. How he came up with this is beyond me but it is all so real. It has to be something straight from hell. Nate is such a great hero and swoon worthy. He can't remember his last ten years. He knows he's great at fighting and it doesn't bother him to kill. But he only kills bad people. More out of defense of innocent lives. There was some dark humor. I was laughing so loud. Like at one time when he was trying to remember what he did for a living. Holly had asked him if he was a cop. Nate was sort of horrified at the thought of killing like he did and being a cop. The women in the book were strong in their ability to fight physically and with their wits. Not to mention some magic. And if you love to see the bad guy get what's coming to him, you will absolutely LOVE the ending of this book. There's werewolves and vampires too. The audiobook was wonderful. I loved this narrator's voice. It makes me want to go to England. I love the difference in the way certain words are pronounced so differently than they are here in America. There was one word Nate kept using that I meant to look up because I didn't know what it meant. Now I can't remember. It wasn't anything important, just something said that we don't say. I love it. And I could listen to the narrator's voice all day.
