Overview

If you want to catch a Magical, you have to go about it the right way.

You have to have the right tools, the right training, a certain disregard for danger and a flair for the dramatic. Oh, and it helps if you inherit your father's wicked bounty hunter skills, which give you superhuman reflexes and senses.

It's really hard without the last one.

Andromeda Nyx has all the skills to be a successful bounty hunter. But after five years of training and catching nothing but Flinks-the lowest-level Magicals, the kind that think it's funny to steal just one sock from a pair and hide it somewhere in the garden-she's itching for bigger game. When her mentor says going out on her own to catch a Sprite is too risky, she decides to freelance. When the Sprite she catches turns out to be a messenger, Nyx is chosen as an ambassador for the bounty hunters and must travel to the decrepit world of the Magicals, Himnara.

While there, she is informed of a plot by Arcanus Emerson Kain-the leader of a rogue sect of Magicals-to invade Earth for a seemingly bizarre purpose: he wants to steal people. Along with her mentor Ridge, Nyx must find a way to stop Kain before his power becomes too great.

When Andromeda Nyx was ten years old she developed powers and was sent to train to hunt magical creatures. Now, five years later she is bored hunting the little ones and wants to go after a bigger creature. So she goes out on her own and finds herself catching a messenger Sprite that choses her as the ambassador for the hunters. Nyx finds herself in Humnara, the Magical’s world. It seems they are planning a war for humans and it’s up to Nyx to stop them. This is a great story for middle grade readers. You have magical abilities, hunters out to stop Magical’s, and a war brewing. Nyx is a strong lead character that tends to be impatience and in trouble more than not. But she is the one that can stop this upcoming war. I think this is a wonderful story that has a great ending but has enough of an opening for a sequel. This is a great story that will appeal to any age. Make sure to check it out. I received a complimentary copy of this book. I voluntarily chose to read and post an honest review.
