Book Review: Magic in the Blood

Devon Monk's Magic in the Blood is the second in her Allie Beckstrom series, the first being Magic to the Bone.

It's been a while since I've written a review about anything, so bear with me while I ramble.

I love Allie. She's strong willed, independent, and she has to deal with a huge load of emotional and physical shit. Pain and often a loss of memories, because you can't use magic without paying a price.

Magic in the Blood held a slower pace than her first book. Less action, but more character driven. It didn't disappoint, though. The whole thing was riveting, spelling binding, and kept me hungry for more. (If there is a more cliched review line, I'll eat my foot, but it's still true.) There was mystery and mayhem, and a great supporting cast with old characters, and new.

I can hardly wait to run out and buy the next book in the series.

Hrrgh. I think I'm going to have to practice writing reviews or something. Guess I'll just have to write more, eh?

  1. All you can do is write what you think. It wasn't all filled with eloquent statements about the deeper meanings behind the story, but it made me interested enough to pick up a reading copy. Keep on writing 'em.
