I complain sometimes about urban fantasy heroines who keep racking up and improbable powers over the course of a series eventually becoming such spectacular demigoddesses that it would take a small army to give them so much as a black eyeThat's one problem Allie Beckstrom doesn't have I'm beginning to think Allie needs powers to deal with everything Devon Monk is throwing at her Monk is great — maybe a little too great — at describing the agony of trekking all over Portland in the rain with a blinding migraine and by the time I'd followed Allie through this ordeal a couple of times I found myself wishing she'd start trusting Zayvion again just so he could Ground her Magic in the Blood begins as Allie is recovering from the events that took place in Magic to the Bone The reader remembers everything that happened but as a result of a magical backlash Allie doesn't Specifically she doesn't remember much about her relationship with Zayvion The fragile trust that had just been developing between Allie and Zayvion is in a shambles now and she's back at suare one trying to figure out whether to let him back into her life She also doesn't remember meeting her stepmother Violet An aside I'm beginning to think Violet is my favorite character in this series I'd love to see of her If Devon Monk were to write a spin off book telling Violet's story I'd be in bookworm heaven I'd love to get inside her headFurther complicating Allie's life she is being threatened by a crime boss just released from prison haunted by the ghost of her dead father and stalked by a horde of terrifying beings who are drawn to the magic she carries in her body Every time Allie uses magic she attracts these creatures and has to use magic to fight them off As a result she spends most of Magic in the Blood suffering from one magic induced ailment after anotherThe principal villain of Magic in the Blood is truly creepy This character has mastered a horrific magical art and to make things worse it's such an obscure skill that everyone thinks Allie is hallucinating when she describes what's going on I did figure out pretty uickly that this character was bad news but I wasn't able to put all the pieces together until Allie did Magic in the Blood didn't grab me uite as insistently as Magic to the Bone did When I try to put my finger on why I think maybe it's just that it feels like Blood is treading some of the same ground again both in terms of the romantic subplot and in terms of the seuences in which Allie travels around the city while feeling ill I think this retread feeling was probably inevitable though given Allie's amnesia and the way magic works in Monk's worldI look forward to seeing what happens in the next ALLIE BECKSTROM novel Allie's growing alliances with other Hounds promise to be interesting as long as she writes them down and makes sure to remember them and I always enjoy an urban fantasy heroine who develops friendships as her story progresses rather than becoming standoffish And the cliffhanger ending I can't wait to find out where this is going Read this and my review of Magic to the Bone at FanLitnet

Magic In the Blood Allie Beckstrom #2In the second book in Devon the Blood eBook #9734 Monk's Allie Beckstrom series when the police's magical enforcement division asks Allie to consult on a missing persons case she finds herself drawn into an underworld of criminals ghosts and blood m. A freaky ending an interesting magic system and mysterious societies lurking on the fringe have convinced me to read the third book But I have my reservations It's hard to pin down how I feel about Ms Beckstrom I don't dislike her but I'm not particularly attached to her either Combine that with paragraph after paragraph of tedious detail and this isn't a series I'm excited about I can't tell you how tired I am of reading the same phrasing to describe Allie's magic I got it the first time Though I very much appreciate magic's taxation on the user I feel there must be some way to make the repercussions clear without wading through a freuent laundry list of symptoms Also how many times did I have to read about the girl showering I don't need to to soap up with her every darn time The suspense aspect was good but it's damaged by Allie's stubborn attitude and her tendency to jump thoughtlessly into danger For such a suspicious person she isn't very cautious Changes take place in this installment the nature of which make me hopeful for answers and character progression There are a lot of uniue areas to explore in Allie's world if only the author would tighten her pacing and reign in the details I think the third will be the deciding factor in whether or not I become a real fan
