Magic without Mercy (Allie Beckstrom Novels #8)by Devon Monk
Synopses & Reviews
Allison Beckstrom's talent for tracking spells has put her up against some of the darkest elements in the world of magic. But she's never faced anything like this.
Magic itself has been poisoned, and Allie's undead father may have left the only cure in the hands of a madman. Hunted by the Authority—the secret council who enforces the laws–wanted by the police, and unable to use magic, she's got to find the cure before the sickness spreads beyond any power to stop it.
But when a death magic user seeks to destroy the only thing that can heal magic, Allie and her fellow renegades must stand and fight to defend the innocent and save all magic...
"Fiendishly original and a stay-up-all-night read."
"Allie's adventures are gripping and engrossing, with an even, clever mix of humor, love, and brutality."
"This is an absolutely awesome series."

Return to national bestselling author Devon Monk's heartpounding House Immortal series, where eleven powerful Houses control the world and all its resources. But now, the treaty between them has been broken, and no one—not even the immortal galvanized—is safe....
Matilda Case isnt normal. Normal people arent stitched together, inhumanly strong, and ageless, as she and the other galvanized are. Normal peoples bodies dont hold the secret to immortality—something the powerful Houses will kill to possess. And normal people dont know that theyre going to die in a few days.
Matildas fight to protect the people she loves triggered a chaotic war between the Houses and shattered the worlds peace. On the run, she must find a way to stop the repeat of the ancient time experiment that gifted her and the other galvanized with immortality. Because this time, it will destroy her and everything she holds dear.
Caught in a cat-and-mouse game of lies, betrayal, and unseen foes, Matilda must fight to save the world from utter destruction. But time itself is her enemy, and every second brings her one step closer to disaster....
