My Favorite Find (Mar.10)

MY FAVORITE ‘FIND’ (Saturdays)… My Favorite Find showcases that one drool-worthy find from the week’s collection. In other words, one of my “finds” makes me want to read it right now! (the others look good, but I’m not drooling over them. LOL). Hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading {see archives}

This week’s fave find is …

Magic to the Bone (Allie Beckstrom #1)
by Devon Monk

Using magic meant it used you back. Forget the fairy-tale, hocus-pocus, wave a wand and bling-o, sparkles and pixie dust crap. Magic, like booze, sex, and drugs, gave as good as it got.

Everything has a cost. And every act of magic exacts a price from its user - maybe a two-day migraine, or losing the memory of your first kiss. But some people want to use magic without paying, and they Offload the cost onto innocents. When that happens, it falls to a Hound to identify the spell's caster - and Allison Beckstrom's the best there is.

Daughter of a prominent Portland businessman, Allie would rather moonlight as a Hound than accept the family fortune - and the strings that come with it. But when she discovers a little boy dying from a magic Offload that has her father's signature all over it, Allie is thrown into the high-stakes world of corporate espionage and black magic.

Now Allie's out for the truth - and must call upon forces that will challenge everything she knows, change her in ways she could never imagine ... and make her capable of things that powerful people will do anything to control.

  1. Oh Andie! I was browsing with a friend through our small local bookstore, searching for local authors...Devon Monk was one of those authors we found. The town she writes about is an hour away from me...where most of the action is. I didn't purchase any of her books that day. I got a surprise birthday present for my friend instead. Dying to hear what you think.
