Simon Hunt is a masterful Mage when it comes to knives, solving puzzles, and women. But when a Mageri councilman asks for a personal favor, his skills are put to the test. He reluctantly accepts the impossible job of training a young Learner who is beyond anyone's help. She's beautiful, cunning, and disabled. If he succeeds he'll receive a hefty paycheck. But if he fails, more is at stake than merely his reputation.
Risk is a compelling tale about two lost souls and the unique connection they share. Simon is her last hope...and perhaps she is his.
What happens when a game of chance becomes a fight for survival?

Must read the first books in the Mageri series before enjoying this gem! Although it is a standalone, there are lots of spoilers, if you intend to listen to the series (and I highly recommend that!).
Nicole is fabulous and her rendition of Simon is as spectacular as I thought it would be.
For almost 5 years I've waited for this book and was not disappointed. Simon is delicious, sassy, compassionate, and of an intelligence that makes me tingle all over. Smart is so damn sexy!!
Anyway, moving on... (Sorry, thinking of Simon makes me distracted!) Risk was the most anticipated story since Shine, the last Mageri Series book. Some parts of Risk got intense and serious, but never lingering on the painful parts of Simon's life. There were plenty of his known and adored cheeky humor, fun and flirtatious bits to keep me salivating all the way throughout the story.
Ella was amazing! I fell in love with her right away and marveled at how stunningly beautiful she was created and developed. A true fighter and wonderful match for our beloved sexy British lover. Great read indeed!
But if you are looking to truly appreciate all that comes with this sexy beast of a man, you must check out Sterling. He is in incredible delicious form there. His introduction is marked as one of the highlight moments of the entire series, in my opinion.
Love listening to audiobooks, and being swept away by a great story and narrator. It's my therapy, and I need it daily!
This was the first story in the Mageri series I've listened too, and it was fantastic! For being book six, the plot was well written, full of action, had lots of twist, and gave enough details, I understood the past events that lead up to these characters story, and never felt lost.
Dark did a outstanding job with the world building, and the magic, but the characters really made this story! They came to life, were multi-layered, and had distinctive personalities. I especially liked Simon, he was smart, sexy, full of life, and I loved all his witty flirtatious dialogue. Even when he was down, or stuck in hard place, he had something witty to say! His character really made this very entertaining story!
Nicole Poole did an outstanding job narrating. I loved how she performed Simon's character, and though she did a great job on the accents, as well, delivering on all the different emotions.
Well worth the time and credit!
The book was well written, entertaining and I love the characters. Simon is a great character. I loved him more in the other books. It Just feels like I didn't get enough of him in this one. I Want more Simon. more more more!
They are all great book by Dannika! I have read them all minus Closer (next on my list) and by all I mean all of her books not just this series.
Oh Nicole Poole is a stellar narrator. She has great projection, clarity and tone. I can listen to her for ever!
Simon is a manly man who would rather suffer than look weak. So, when Simon was trapped and Levi saved him which inadvertently caused him to find out about his haunted past, I was sooo touched at the verbal and emotional exchange between these two and then his other friend showed up to help, Simon then realized that he actually had two loyal friends who did not want something in return.
I would like to see a part two or a follow up novella of Simon and the gang. Unless there are more full length books to come. I just feel unfulfilled. I would like a nice closer for the crew and for Simon to live happily ever after.
Can't wait until next book. Couldn't stop listening. Love the narrator too! All books are wonderful!
Since reading Mageri series I've wondered about Simon and his past. Dannika did an awesome job with this story in letting us see into Simon's life and past. I love Simon's humor, loyalty and love how on the audio you get to hear his accent. I also love the interactions with other characters in the Mageri series. I didn't want this story to end. And can't wait for Dannika's next book! And glad Nicole Poole is the one narrating. She is perfect for these stories.
I had high expectations before I heard the story. I was not disappointed. I always loved the voice of Simon hunt and is outlandish comments, because it made me laugh. couldn't get enough of him. the new character ella found a way to make a disability an asset.
Please recommend physic detectives . Done with romance novels
This is urban legend at it's best. I loved Simon more that any one in the Five Magri audiobook.
Sad memories at first for Simon, but the last four chapters had me LOL. I also think Simon has found his "queen". Well worth the credit!!
