Lissa's Review: Ancient Magic by Linsey Hall
Publisher: Bonnie Doon Press
Released: April 6th 2016
Genre: Romance, Sci Fi & Fantasy
I’m good at two things: finding treasure and killing demons. Lying low is a close third—but not because I want to be good at hiding. I have to be. I’m a FireSoul, one of the unlucky few to inherit a piece of the dragon’s soul. Being born with the dragon’s covetousness should be a sweet gig - I have the power to find and steal any type of treasure, including the powers of other supernaturals. But it doesn’t come without a price - stealing powers requires that I kill, and others would destroy me if they discover what I am. In a world full of magic, hiding my species is the only way to survive. Finding magical artifacts is the only way to pay the bills. It’s a dangerous job when you can barely use your magic, but that’s one of the things I like about it. When Aidan Merrick, the most powerful shifter in the city, hired me to find an ancient scroll, I didn’t want to take the job. His immense amount of power reminds me of too much of murky memories from a past I can’t remember. But I don’t have a choice. The scroll reveals what I am. And if anyone finds out, I’m dead.
Three Boundless Stars
I had been scrolling and came upon this book. I loved the cover and felt I needed to read it.
Cass is a fire soul. One who has part of a soul of a Dragon. She wakes up one day with two other girls. Not knowing who or what they are. And if they try remember really far back, they get a really really bad headache. They decide to keep themselves hidden. Cass, Nix, and Del stick together.
But of course things change. And with that change. It involves all kinds of danger, with Demons and magic. There's a lot of action in the story. Though, I think this is a good story. It really didn't hold my attention well. I had to put it down and keep going back.
The relationship of Cass and Aidan did seem a little forced to me. She was about ready to jump his bones when they first meet.
It's a good start to a series and it will be interesting to see where it goes. There's so much you can do and with the amount of characters. And all the magic that surrounds this story.
