By the skin of my teeth, I passed the Vampire Court trials. I’m officially an ally, with the seductive vampire Ares on my side. Everything should be good, except that there’s a magical mob boss on the hunt for dragons. Problem is: dragons are supposed to be dead. So what does he know that I don’t?
It’s a race against the clock to save the dragons. But things get dangerous when the mob boss starts hunting me. What was a straightforward mission becomes a tangled web of intrigue and danger. I can only get out alive if I embrace my strange new magic--along with the help of Ares and my friends.
Origin of Magic is a fast-paced urban fantasy thriller with a kick-butt heroine, a tough hero, and magic that will blow your socks off.
Origin of Magic is a fabulous addition to the Dragon's Gift: The Protector series and I'm finding Nix to be a really well-developed character. Yes, she's usually in their shop and pretty much knows how to handle things but as she's taken further away from her comfort zone, she is really allowed to shine. Plus, her heritage will knock your socks off as it's almost too cruel where her powers come from.
Obviously, I can't say too much but her love of nature and her connection with life itself really comes to fruition in this book. Yes, there are battles to fight, adventures to face at breakneck speed, and glorious interaction with a certain too beautiful for words Vampire, but that ending will leave you desperate for the next instalment.
This voluntary take is of an advance copy and my thoughts and comments are honest and I believe fair.
