It has been six years since the Awakening and peace in Spokane, Washington is still tenuous at best. The vampires and shifters are all vying for control of the city and the humans seem to be the ones suffering the consequences, or so it seems.
When a stranger rolls into town with trouble on his heels, Aria finds herself trapped in the middle of a battle that could cost her more than she has bargained for as a fight for justice turns into an unexpected fight for her life.

Every aspect of this book screamed action, adventure, mystery and paranormal goodness!
I feel like my mind is on mental spew mode because all I want to do is give up the plots, secrets, and tell you who ends up being the biggest @$$hole in the series thus far....but I won't! All these goodies will stay within the covers of these books until you go and pick them up yourself.
Over the course of reading the 1st & 2nd book in Danielle's, Blood & Magic series, I was able to introduce my literary self to some super sweet characters & dynamics. Initially when meeting the heroine, Aria, she's in the process of solving a young boys murder, she's being led towards vampires as the culprits....but something doesn't feel right. As the plot thickens it evident there is more to Aria's theory than even she'd like to admit.
One of the things that kind of made me go...."Ehhh"....was how quickly the first book wrapped up. I didn't care for the rush, and it would be a put-off-ish for someone who doesn't have the 2nd book handy like I did.
But, like I said I had the 2nd book handy, and thank goodness for that!
Still in a bad situation Aria needs to find an out, and find one fast. Being told what you're going to do isn't high on the "Like List" for Aria, so now that her future is being told to her she will do anything to make that decision on her own.
One of the things that I truly enjoyed about this book was the all the emotion, and character development. It seemed that each character grew more within specific chapters of this book, then they had in the entire 1st book, and that right there shows author development.
Overall I enjoyed this series as a whole, I really expect a lot from Danielle in book #3 though. Not only in her characters, but in her worlds. Let's bust the roof off this paranormal bisch!
