This is a NON-SPOILER REVIEW. I enjoyed the read. The storyline develops nicely and moves at a steady pace. This first in a series is a cliffhanger, but the story draws you in and makes you want to read more. It's a clean read that has a strong female lead and a couple of strong male counters (that I wouldn't mind seeing develop into something more). I recommend this read to anyone looking for a new series with lots of potential. A great afternoon's read, but I 'm looking forward to book 2, Demon Kin.
This is Book 1 of the SoulTracker Series, a spinoff of the DarkWorld Series. It's also set in the DarkWorld SkinWalker Series World, but you don't have to read that series first. That series in my TBR file, but I have no problem reading Blood Magic. I received this book as for a honest review, but after reading it, I would've done the review anyways whether I got it free or paid for it.
I'm mad or is it sad. I'm devouring the book, and then, boom, it ended. I was so involved with the story (and the Kindle told me there was about 75% completed and it ended. Yes there is a bit of cliffhanger, or a lead into Demon Kin, but all the major things were pretty much tied up. There's more to this series to be written and I can't wait to read Demon Kin.
I loved T.G. Ayer’s DarkWorld SkinWalker series, so it’s no surprise that I quickly glimmer on to Blood Magic, the first of the author’s new SoulTracker series, which is a spinoff and also set in the fantastic multiverse created for the DarkWorld series (though this series can standalone so you don't have to read that series first, even if you’d be missing something grand). You gotta love any story involving gargoyles, demons, sorcerers and Djinn - or a take-no-prisoners snarky feisty heroin like Mel Morgan who, oh yeah, just happens to be a Master Teleporter capable of moving through the “Veil” into the otherworldly planes (and is wickedly powerful). This is a great adventure with wonderful writing, some neat twists and turns and a fabulous cast (I especially liked Saleem the Djinn). Really this is a superb series start of what I can already tell is going to be a new addiction. I could go on and on with praises for this book. It definitely deserves it. The book is most definitely one to read, and it is easy to highly recommend. I’m definitely looking forward to the next book in this series.
This was my first book by new to me author Ayer. After reading some other reviews I realized that this is a spin off from a previous series which explains my slightly lost feeling. I felt as if there was backstory i was missing, unfortunately I didn't like this enough to go back and read the previous series. I did find that Mel and her powers grew on me as the book progressed. There seemed to be the promise of romance with Saleem that wasn't realized. For the most part I enjoyed this book. Will I continue the series? I'll have to think about that. Cautiously recommended.
I received a complimentary copy of this book for voluntary review consideration.
I really enjoyed this book. This is one of my first books by this author and I am glad I had the chance to read it. I like how strong of a character that Mel is and I like the idea of a master teleporter. Of course gargoyles are alaways cool too. I love the interactions between the characters and how they go about doing what they need to do. There are plenty of twists and turns and its enough to make a very good book. Mel is a character that will have you rooting for her as you go through the book with her as she tries to save as many people as she can.
I know for a fact I will be looking forward to more in this series!!
Fascinating read that brings you into a dark and dangerous world full of Magic and supernatural beings.
Mel is very likable and easy to relate to even with her loner (not so Loner) ways. She is young, feisty, smart and very loyal (also of the charts powerful, with makes her very valuable). On this dark and action packed dangerous journey she is tested to the limit it seams. Overall a very entertaining late night read and I am looking forward to more stories of her adventures.
What a Fantastic Journey with Supernatural beings like Djinn, Gargoyles, witches and more! I received an advance copy and I am so happy I did! This is my first book of T.G. Ayers I've read and it had me on the edge of my seat pretty much the entire time! Mel is a Tracker who finds missing people, it's just the way she does it which is fascinating. She can travel out of her body and with a piece of hair from the victim, she can locate them and then "jump" her physical body to their location. I can't wait to read the
A action packed story with a head strong caring heroin Melisande willing to do what needs to be done to accomplish her goal. She has worked hard to embrace her abilities and to push herself beyond her comfort zone to understand them even further. Characters like Drake her best friend, Samuel a mentor, Storm who took her in, Chloe a confidant, and Saleem a detective that bring personalities and different aspects to the story. Each have intrig and abilities of their own making the story interesting and action packed. I recommend this story wholeheartly.
