“I enjoyed the world Miss Maxwell created. She painted this world clear with secret societies that reminded me of the movie National Treasures.” ~ Under the Covers

The author created a world where magic exists but the use of it is illegal and the ones who use magic is done so in secret. In the modern-day New York, Manhattan, any Mageus who enters is trapped in the Brink causing them to lose their magic and sometimes their lives. A very dangerous world for the Mageus as they are hunted by The Order and gangs alike.

Esta is a Mageus and has been training a long time stealing artifacts from The Order by using her affinity of time travel. The ultimate goal is to steal an ancient magic book from 1902, but once there, there are complications she cannot avoid. Esta’s adventure is full of mystery, betrayals, a tidbit of romance.

I enjoyed this book last year and enjoyed it again after rereading it in preparation for the second instalment of this series. I love the idea of Esta’s affinity of slowing time and time travel. A very cool magic to have. I love seeing Esta’s character grow from a student to finding her own way. Especially after learning truths about her past and the plot twist at the end surprised me.

I enjoyed the world Miss Maxwell created. She painted this world clear with secret societies that reminded me of the movie National Treasures.  There was action, mystery, and an ending that left you wanting more. I will admit that there was a part in the end that I sort of predicted, yet still caught me off guard.

Next installment is out October 9, and I’m excited to get the beautiful print copy in my hands.

I am young at heart and a die hard romantic living in California.I am happily married to a man who understands my love for reading, blogging and my book boyfriends. I have two beautiful girls who are also avid readers but forbidden to any of my books.I like running, CrossFit and eat healthy but not necessarily good at it.My motto is “I have the right to choose my calories” and often, my choice of poison is a bag of Flammin’ Hot Cheetos.

I coblog and review here at Under the Covers and occasionally review for Hot Listens.I love to read PNR, UF, Contemporary, New Adult, and Romantic Suspense. Occasionally, I will venture to Erotica, BDSM reads and rarely Historical Romance. There are some sub-genres that I don’t always enjoy, but I’m open to stepping out of my comfort zone.For the most part, as long as there’s a hint of romance, I’m pretty much in.
