Publisher's Summary

With Portland about to descend into chaos, Allie Beckstrom needs to find a way to purify the wells of tainted magic beneath the city. But the only options left to her are grim: attempt to close down magic forever or follow her father's plan to set magic into the right hands - even though she's learned to never trust his word. Now Allie will have to make a choice and face the darkness of her own deepest fears before time runs out for them all....

Love this series.

I have totally enjoyed the Allie Beckstrom books. Wonderful world building and character development. Favorite characters are Zayvion, Shame, Terric, Davy and Stone. Superb narration.

Don't Buy the snark. This is a terrific series

I have about a thousand titles in my audible library, and this is the first review I have taken the time to write.

Yes Allie is frequently whiney, makes ill-advised decisions and can be the definition of stubborn.but keep the faith and you will be handsomely rewarded. She outgrows these character flaws particularly in the later installments.

Bottom line the reason to listen to this series is that Devon Monk has done a wonderful job of world building, created a variety of intriguing characters and compelling storylines in every installment. I was very sorry to see the series concluded.
