Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Allie Beckstrom's lover, Zayvion Jones, is a Guardian of the Gate, imbued with both light and dark magic and responsible for ensuring that those energies don't mix. But Zayvion lies in a coma, his soul trapped in death's realm. And when Allie discovers that the only way to save Zayvion is to sacrifice her very own magical essence, she makes a decision that may have grave consequences for the entire world.

Review:

"The action-packed fifth Allie Beckstrom novel (after 2009's Magic in the Shadows) amps up the magical mayhem. Just as Allie joins the Authority, a secret group of magical enforcers, internal warfare threatens the organization. Also in danger is Zayvion Jones, Allie's Soul Complement. To save him, she must travel through the gates of Death to retrieve his soul at the cost of her own magic. Unlike most magic users, Allie carries magic within her and doesn't have to draw on the city wells--but technology created by her malevolent father may have made magic portable for everyone, including the Veiled, evil ghosts who think the infinitely reusable magic disks are their route to immortality in the world of the living. Allie's adventures are gripping and engrossing, with an even, clever mix of humor, love, and brutality. (Nov.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)

Best book in the series so far. Allie is one of the best urban fantasy heroines out there. She is multi-dimensional and just plain kick butt. The supporting cast are just as interesting as Allie.

If you haven't read the Allie Beckstrom books, you are missing out!

I can't wait to receive this book. All the Allie Beckstrom books have been great.

I'm often reluctant to start new fantasy/paranormal series without clear endings as there are a few I've really liked at first and then given up on as they've gone on way too long. After reading the first book in this series, I was interested. After the second, I was hooked.

I can't wait for the 5th book to arrive.
