Cass Clereaux likes her job. It's simple - steal the magic, don't get killed. FireSouls like her are perfect for magic treasure hunting. Their dragon soul helps them find treasure, their wicked powers help them steal it. But there's a big freaking downside - FireSouls are hunted. If either of the magical governments figures out what she is, she can kiss her life goodbye.
When the Alpha Council comes to her with a special job, it's a no-brainer to turn it down, no matter how much money they're offering. Shifters who can sniff out her weird magic are the last supernaturals she needs to be around. Worse? They have a history of hunting FireSouls. But when Cass learns that a little girl's life is at stake and Cass is her last hope, she doesn't have a choice.
With her sisters and the powerful Shifter Aidan Merrick at her back, she's got a chance at saving the girl and keeping her deadly secret - until she learns there's far more to this kidnapping than meets the eye.

Say something about yourself!
this is the second in the Huntress series. I received the audio book from the narrator for a honest review. The story line is great. Cass and her "sisters" are fire souls that is hated by others because of their ability to take another's magic. They have to be careful who they tell. Keeping it a secret is getting hard. In this story she is called upon to help the shifters find a missing child and the object she takes care of. They get the child back but the object is still missing. Also the person who took the object seems to know who Cass is. She and her "sisters" can't remember anything before they were 15/ Who are they? Where did they come from? Will the secret be told?
Can't wait till the next book
I liked the book a lot and the narration was good as well. I'm finding I quite like Laurel Schroeder's voices.
I really like how sweet the romance between Cass and Aidan, and I felt like the conclusion to the book was really satisfying. I'm ready ton start the next book.
The only thing that bugged me about the book was a particular part where Cass decided to sacrifice herself for the good of a little girl, and I was like, is there seriously no one else who could take her place? No one?
Books give a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and life to everything. - Plato
I really enjoy this series! This is a fun filled adventure with a touch of romance!!! I can hardly wait for book 3!!!
Cass and Aidan are spending more and more time together, and she is learning to control her magic. The Alpha council wants her to track something valuable. At first she turns them down but when she finds out a girl's life is at stake, she has no choice but to take a risk and help them.
The narrator does a great job bringing the story to life. It does not end in bad cliffhanger but we know the story is not complete since the evil guy that has been hunting them is still at large.
It's a series full of danger, suspense, action, magic, drama, and a sweet romance to seal the deal!

I just finished listening to "Mirror Mage" and immediately downloaded the 3rd book in the series.
I'm hooked on following the story of Cass, Aiden, and Cass's deirfiúr and friends on their archaeological adventures and their struggle to learn about their hidden past. The series is fun, compelling, and just dark enough to keep it from being too sweet. I look forward to listening to the rest of the books!

I thought the narrator did a fine job with the characters, just like in book 1. The two main characters are aiden and cass, and they each have a distinct feel. I like her natural voice as well. Personally, I can't see how Aiden's irish accent would be attractive, but I'm a guy so *shrug*
Book 2 feels like "monster of the week"; while the story continues from book 1, it doesn't really do much for the overall story arc. We don't learn any more about the main characters' past, we don't learn any more about the 'monster', the characters don't really change, and there aren't any new relationships. Her friends Dell and Nix get very little screen time, which I expected from the first novel. I'd really like to learn more about them and the monster, but the story didn't satisfy my curiosity. With that said, i thought the story was fine. Cass gets a new mission to save a girl, then uses her covet-hunting powers to find her and get the job done. Along the way, she spends more time with Aiden and gets a slave collar.
Some of the story points are kinda weird, but it follows the same problems from the first book. The transport charms make another appearance, but the rich alpha council and billionaire aiden don't seem to carry enough. Despite their lives depending on hiding their fire soul nature, they end up revealing it to someone accidentally and then deliberately tell their friends (in their pub no less). They could have done a much better job hiding it imo. But once you accept it and roll with it, the story is enjoyable.
I am addicted to books. Nothing makes me happier than crawling inside a good book.
I love this series and the connection the 3 ladies have and then having to hide and protect themselves for being fire souls. I love that Aidian is always there for Cass and protecting her secret that she is a fire soul. Also one of the order of Magica is now protecting her secret because Fire Souls are considered dangerous as they kill people to steal their powers. These 3 ladies are not interested in stealing powers and if found out I feel they should not be sent to the place for magical miscreants.

Laurel returns to voice Cass and crew in this second book. Oh, when she voices Aidan in the first chapter, I just smiled. I love her accent for him. Laurel voices new characters we come across with a different accent, vocal tone, personality, and emotion for the moment. I enjoy this as it brings the story to life and shows a bit of difference among the characters we see. The audio seems seamless and no distractions in the background. It's all about the story when I'm listening to Laurel.
Something I really like about Cass, and it stuck out to me in the first book along with here too, she's not our normal find the ancient artifacts and sell them kind of gal. Cass and her sisters find the artifacts that are old, where magic is starting to decay and could become dangerous. They remove the magic from these artifacts and place it in a replica of the item, then return the original to the sacred place it has been kept for years. She tries her hardest to not ruin the secret places, though that's not always possible.
In this book Cass is learning to trust a bit further than her close circle of her two sisters. The events in this book show that others think dearly of Cass, Nix, and Del, along with doing anything to help them. The reason, the three sisters have been great friends that will do what they can for friends, and their friends know it. We even get to see Cass realizing Aidan is trustworthy, that he's not going to hurt her by turning her in. Cass's actions show she's not the dark, killing and greedy sponge that people thing FireSouls are. Though, she does realize something about her FireSoul in this book.
I do enjoy Aidan. He seems like a perfect gentleman, though that is what throws up the red flag for Cass and she tries to keep moving slow with him. Sure, they've kissed and she'd love more, but she wants to get to know him. He does help Cass to learn her magic, pushing her to the edge of her limits to learn and get control of them. He also tries to protect her, even when the ceiling is falling in, he'll throw himself between Cass and the falling rocks.
We start to learn more of Aidan and the Origins in his family past with Cass, even about shifters too. We also start to learn with Cass about her own past. Through dreams Cass learns how they escaped the cell and that monster of a man, even how she became a mirror mage.
I really like that we get more time with Nix and Del in this book too. We got some time with them in the previous book, but this one they are more involved earlier on. Of course we get our Aidan time too. ;) The time feels well balanced between friends, sisters, and growing love.
I'm enjoying this series thus far. It's fun, relaxing, and I really like the personality of Cass and Aidan. Then there are the small hints of what we learn about Cass that has me curious. Not to mention that Monster Man from her past in that terrible cell.
I am just girl who loves my husband, dogs, shopping online and books!
This is the second book of this series. it did not disappoint me at all. I found it just as enjoyable as the first book. this book was well written and good paced.
the narrator did an mazing job in this book!
I was gratefully provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator for an unbiased review via Audio Boom..
Both version are equally good.Linsey Hall wrote a fun adventure filled book. The narration by Laurel Schroeder enhances and complements the book.It has the perfect combination of action, drama and romance.
Cass!I love seeing her grow and mature.She is a fighter, a fierce loyal friend, a person who seeks to fight evil but also seeks the truth about herself.She has her friends, natures a relationship with Aidan and lets herself be a whole person and not just a FireSoul.She doesnt let anything get her down.
Cass and Aiden both.Cass for obvious reasons and Aidan for the wonderful accent!But also because he is always there for Cass, he has her back, and keeps her secrets.He is the perfect Alpha male , supportive and caring.
Yes.I had to know what would happen next and kept on reading /listening.
This was an excellent listen. The story was steady and the narration was excellent. There is an excerpt from the next book at the end. Can't wait to listen and find out what the Dragon Souls encounter next.
