Magic On The Hunt

Magic On The Hunt

Book 6 in the Allie Beckstrom Series

 There aren’t many girls who can say they’ve gone into the realm of death and lived to tell the tale. But to restore her lover Zayvion’s soul, Allison Beckstrom had to pay a bitter price–and things are about to get worse….

It turns out the leader of the Authority, the council that decides what can–and can’t–be done with magic, is being held hostage. But when the trail leads Allie and Zayvion to the secret prison where the Authority locks away magical criminals who are too dangerous to be held anywhere else, they find more than they bargained for. An undead magic user has possessed one of the prisoners, and he wants his freedom–and then some. Now Allie and Zayvion are the first line of defense against the chaos he’s about to unleash on the city of Portland….

    Hello Devin
    I love your Allie books as well! I was able to get my library in Tucson to carry your books just recently. I read Magic to the Bone and fell in love with your world. I went out and purchased all of them! Just finished Magic on the Storm and Magic at the Gate in three days because I could not put them down. I am soooo happy to see that another one is coming out in April just before my Birthday. Yea for me!! Early birthday present!!! 😀

    I just happened to pick up one of these books this weekend and I quickly read through the series. I just finished Magic at the Gates last night and now I’m bummed that I have to wait until April for the next one! I think this is the best books series I’ve ever read. April 5th can’t come fast enough : )

    Like all the others, I love your Allie Beckstrom Series! I discovered you via Ilona Andrews and Good Reads and have loved all your books! Got A Cup of Normal from the Library the other day, and am chomping at the bit for Magic on the Hunt. That teaser chapter is killer!

    I am thrilled that my brother got me a Hasting’s gift card for my birthday because it means I will be picking up ‘Magic on the Hunt’ on the 5th!! I love your books and style of writing and strongly recommend you to others. It’s great being able to get such wonderful feedback from you as well, and my advanced copy signed by you of ‘Magic at the Gate’ holds a place of honor on my bookshelves. It is the only author signed book I own, and will always be treasured as my first. Thank you so much, and you have also given me great inspiration in my own crafting projects!

    I just finished reading Magic on the Hunt. . . needless to say. . . I’m already going to withdrawals! I absolutely loved it. When are you releasing Magic on the Line? I guess I need to get all the other books back from the friend I loaned them to just so I’ll have something to read until your next release. Thank you to my friend Lori for turning me on to your wonderful Allie Beckstrom series!

    Devon, finished Magic on the Hunt on the 7th :) DEVOURED it, LOVED it, so glad you decided to become a writer! I was really worried about Shame for a while, though… that boy sure can find trouble! Loved all the Crowne Point/Multnomah Falls stuff, too… who knew all that had been there all along! *tongue firmly in cheek*

    I absolutely love this series!! They are my favorite books. My mom and I are sharing the books and we always argue over who gets to read the new books first.I won this time for magic on the hunt =). I am so excited that there are many more books coming! I can’t wait to read them!!! Thank you for such wonderful stories and characters. They are so real sometimes I feel like they could walk right off the page.

    I eat up fantasy and there hasn’t been much recently that’s made me pause and think ‘wow, I really can’t wait till the next book comes out in this series’. But your books are amazing and I have to say thanks for making my day every time I pick up one up! :)

    It’s Angie,thanks to your sister De and Michelle (they let me borrow the first 4), I cant stop reading your books. I read the first 3 in less then a month and I am on book 4, thanks for the copy of book 5. I know I will be done with 4 & 5 by the time 6 comes. The books are so additive. See you at the family event.

    Hey Devon. Glad to hear your going to release 2 more Allie Beckstrom books. Its hard to find a good read most of the time. And these are deffinetly my favourites.And being 14 but an excellent reader, finding a interesting but challenging book in a school libarey is hard. to me they are childish books. Hoping you are well.

    Not so much of a question but a feedback.. I bought the audio version of magic to the bone (just 10 days ago) and got completely dazzled by it.. I can’t put it down! So much that I bought all the other ones that followed and are available on audible and I’m already almost finished listening to #6 (Magic in the hunt).. I’m also already crying because there is no telling when or if there will be an audible version available for #8 and forth so consider this plead.. Please please pretty please make all books available on audible.
