Publisher's Summary

Mattie Carver's engagement party should have marked the start of her own personal fairy tale. But when her fiancé, Ben, is violently abducted the next morning, her desperate quest to find him rips her away from small-town life and reveals a shattering truth: magic is real - and Ben is hooked. It's not the stuff of storybooks. It's wildly addictive, capable of producing everything from hellish anguish to sensual ecstasy almost beyond human endurance.

Determined to find out who took Ben and why, Mattie immerses herself in a shadowy underworld and comes face-to-face with the darkly alluring Asa Ward, a rogue magic dealer, infamous hustler...and her missing fiancé's estranged brother. Asa has the power to sense magic, and he realizes Mattie is a reliquary, someone with the rare ability to carry magic within her own body, undetected. Asa agrees to help find Ben on one condition: Mattie must use her uncommon talent to assist his smuggling operations. Now, from magic-laced Vegas casinos to the netherworld clubs of Bangkok, Mattie is on a rescue mission. With Asa by her side, she'll face not only the supernatural forces arrayed against her but the all-too-human temptation that she fears she can't resist.

Great concept,. sexual content sometimes distracts

Yes,. I know it is urban fantasy an this genre is subject to the occasional risque scene, but the magic concept is really good with fewer dives into the sex (which one acknowledge is an aspect that has to be present). I really enjoyed as she dived headlong into this world and liked how she coped as she grasped new concepts. Carly is a great narrator and imparts personality to the individual characters. I am going to read the series to see more of this world and watch the storyline evolve.

Reliquary Series A+

This has become one of my favorite go to Series. When I need a good read, great charaters and familiar world setting, this is home. The charaters are strong and yet have fragile edge. They come to be dependent on each other, even through slights and betrayals. #romance #Magic System #tagsgiving, #sweepstakes

AWESOME

I adore this story line and LOVE the Author.... I would most definitely recommend this series to anyone who likes gritty mythological characters that are seeded in the true legends of these creatures. . not the fluffy sparkle fairytale's of the present

Good Story

Interesting story, but the narrator's voice tone and inflection? Grated on the nerves at times.

Main character is a joke

This girl is literally the most helpless main character ever. She complains about everything, makes terrible decisions, is only focused on how sexy the men in the story are, and only relies on whatever the men tell her to do, and not in a sexy dominance sort of way, just cringe worthy. The “sex scenes” aren’t even sexy so I wouldn’t call this a romance or a fantasy. Just boring.

Addictive!

I wasn't sure what I was getting into when I purchased this book. I had eyed it for a while and finally took the plunge. I couldn't stop listening to this story!! The way it evolved and you got to see the characters grow and changed. There are so many love hate relationships in this! Alot of actions, sexual scenes with no sex for the sake of transferring the magic. It is intense! I wish I would have gotten this book sooner! And the rest of the series gets even better!! I love this author and the amazing worlds she creates! This is the 2nd series by her I have fallen head over heels for! Definitely a must read in my mind! Just get it! you wont regret it!

Excellent story, had me gripped right from the start. I can't wait for book two, when I hope Mattie and Acer will reunite.

Thank you Sarah

At last a new fantasy series for the older than YA crowd! This series a great find and an action fueled adventure romp. The characters are interesting and the story moves along at a good clip. The reader does a good job of bringing the story to life, unfortunately she has pretty much only one "male" voice which she uses for all the characters and it sounds like an aged grandma with a 40 a day habit. This is obviously not ideal for romantic heroes etc, but if you can get past it the story is fun.

Maybe not so predictable

Wondered how the 2nd book could be even nearly as great as the 1st but I shouldn't have worried it was awesome and not as predictable as I thought it might have been
The narrator really hooked me in and kept me relating pressing the stop button!!
Overall great
