Magic In The Blood

Magic In The Blood

Book 2 in the Allie Beckstrom Series

Working as a Hound-tracing illegal spells back to their casters-has taken its toll on Allison Beckstrom. But even though magic has given her migraines and stolen her recent memory, Allie isn’t about to quit. Then the police’s magic enforcement division asks her to consult on a missing persons case. But what seems to be a straightforward job turns out to be anything but, as Allie finds herself drawn into the underworld of criminals, ghosts, and blood magic.

    I’m just finishing the audio version of “Magic to the Bone,” and have a few comments on this book, which I would have preferred to deliver privately, but couldn’t find a way to do it–feel free not to display on the blog. You are very talented as a writer–plots are original and compelling, dialog fresh, setting well realized. But I have a problem with Allie herself, possibly related to experiencing this book in audio. The constant memory loss thing casts Allie as a victim, and a victim who has no way to overcome a core problem loses credibility as an appealing protagonist. This is axacerbated when the memory loss is so random that consistency becomes an issue. Allie ends up appearing stubborn (and a little stupid) instead of principled. The memory loss greatly hinders continuing relationships with both her stepmother and love interests–solutions seem insurmountable. I’m not sure I will pursue this series, despite its many positive qualities. I think you would be well served to get past this problem in some way, if it hasn’t already happened in the later titles.

    […] Magic in the Blood is novel no. 2 in the Allie Beckstrom series. This is urban fantasy at its best. Devon Monk comes through with plenty of humor, lots of action and some romance. I like this version of hero. Allie manages to come through as a three-dimensional person. But she doesn’t stand alone as three-dimensional. Her side-kicks add to the story. This is quite a talent for an author. […]
