BookWhisperer Review: four stars

 

About the book:

In the secret lockup of the Authority, the council that decides what can and can't be done with magic, an undead magic user has possessed one of the prisoners. He wants his freedom-and then some. Now Allie Beckstrom and her lover, Zayvion, are the first line of defense against the chaos he's about to unleash on the city of Portland...

review plate The Allie Beckstrom series has been a well loved favorite personally for The BookWhisperer over the past few years. Allie is a very entertaining character; that while obviously not bullet proof she has the courage and power of even the strongest characters. With the circumstance of the fifth book I had concerns as the the future of Allie and Zay, and just what would be the repercussions of giving her magic for his life. It appears with this novel that she is not at a disadvantage with the lack of some of her own power. Although, much of this could be contributed to the fact that Allie’s father is taking up residence in her body. Allie seems to be learning even more magic with the help of her father. I am beginning to wonder if he is truly the monster that we have believed over the past five books. The Allie Beckstrom series is more action packed novels with a slightly twist of romance. Zay and Allie continue to love and fight their way through the novels, but at times the lack of intimacy can be frustrating. Zay is a very closed character that true emotion is shown few and far between. This novel was a slightly slower pace than the past novels. I am fairly concerned that this is a preview as to the direction of future novels, and hope that the next novel restores my faith.
