Sum It Up! This book has a plot and setting that is easy to fall into.


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 that enforces magic’s 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 antidote, Allie and her fellow renegades must stand and fight to defend the innocent and save all magic…



Allie has a lot on her plate right now. She has successfully killed the leader of the Authority, but has to deal with the consequences. She must run for her life while worrying about her friends and family. The one bright spot is Zay. He and Allie are drawing closer and closer together; the reader will be rooting for their relationship to have a happy ending.

Allie seems to have gained "bossiness" when she lost her magic. She becomes a bit of a leader, but doesn't seem quite mature or knowledgeable enough yet. However, her character certainly grows in maturity throughout the book. Zay's character is more constant. It is clear he cares deeply for Allie, he may even love her. He remains protective and charismatic as always. The reader will enjoy the dynamic between Allie and her dad. It is still unclear as to whose side he is truly on.

As they mysteries begin to pile up and the fighting commences, the reader will have a hard time placing this book down. The fight scenes are exciting and exhilarating, the author writes in such a way so as to make it easy for the reader to imagine him/herself in that scene. This book has a plot and setting that is easy to fall into. If a reader enjoyed the first books in this series, this book is highly recommended.
