I had 5 more books on my brand new book pile besides the 2 double-stacked shelves of Mt. TBR books on my bookshelf to read. I was also reading another, non-fiction book to review for another website.
Yep, I was wrong. I think I was a couple chapters into Magic to the Bone when I immediately called up Magic in the Blood on my Overdrive app from the library to read on my phone as soon as Magic to the Bone was finished. Besides my own binge-reading tendencies, what made me so interested in Allie Beckstrom?
I love this character! Allie, being 25, grew up using magic. Magic incurs a physical price for being used, for Allie this includes losing memories.
Devon Monk - Wikipedia
Allie is Hound, a person who uses magic to track those who have used magic, often against another person. This Hound job is a high magic-use position that is not easy, but also is looked at very poorly.
She has a Harvard education in business magic, but magic knocking holes in her memory has taken care of that. Allie is also privileged to be the sole child of Daniel Beckstrom, CEO of Beckstrom Enterprises, the company who makes it possible for the regular person to use magic. Her mother moved to Europe when she was about 5, never to be heard from again.
I understand there is a suspension of belief because, magic, but at the same time everything else was within reasonable constructs.
From the manufacturer
I like the character a lot. She has a good wit, is very intelligent, makes mistakes, and finds herself in trouble not of her own making. You have to have some patience in this storyline. The characters and the relationships are complex, nuanced, and feel real. There are a few slight caricatures, but sometimes you need that when you end up with a fairly large cast of characters. I find that the story really is a character story, which I liked just fine.
