Popular Book Magic in the Blood OK. I’m in. This second book in the Allie Beckstrom series has solidified my investment in these stories, and I know I am definitely going to keep reading. If you haven’t read book one, you need to start there, and be warned, there are spoilers for that book ahead.We begin with the premise from that surprising revelation at the end of Magic To the Bone: Allie remembers nothing from the events of that book. I suppose that could be annoying to some readers, but for me, I feel like that device gives us some real insight. This is primarily in how the characters react to information we know that Allie doesn’t. And it shows us a lot about Allie’s instincts and how she reacts when she has a blank slate to people and events we have seen before.My big draw continues to be the series love interest, Zayvion. I think his carefulness with Allie speaks volumes about how he feels for her, even though he is clearly a man of secrets. He cares about her. He wants her. And even if she doesn’t remember why, her physical and emotional responses to him are real. I wanted more of them in this book. I want more of them now.As I mentioned in the last review, this world is dark. It actually gets even darker this go around. As Allie works to help police solve a case of some missing girls, an old enemy has resurfaced, threatening her life. And if that wasn’t bad enough, her father’s ghost is reaching out from the grave. I kept thinking that her dad couldn’t possibly be as bad as Allie thought, but wow, I was very wrong there. Add to that, attacks from spirits, the misery from the price of magic, a creepy neighbor, and cold rain that seems to keep Allie soaked and miserable, and you scratch the surface of what our heroine has to endure over the course of the book. Plus, of course, those pesky bouts of amnesia. She has no idea who she can trust, including herself. And as readers, who don’t know much more than she does; only the truths we learned in book 1.There are times I feel like the book lingers on Allie’s physical discomforts, but I guess it would be easy to forget that she is in constant pain otherwise. I also kind of wish we could see her catch just a little bit of a break. I am a little weary just reading about the unceasing barrage of misery. (Plus, I don’t trust that stepmother.) Once again, though, I ended this book raring to pick up the next one. Devon Monk leaves us with a doozy of a gamechanger for Allie once again. And I, for one, am not ready to get off this ride.Now, if Allie will only get herself a raincoat…Rating: B

  1. OK I m in This second book in the Allie Beckstrom series has solidified my investment in these stories, and I know I am definitely going to keep reading If you haven t read book one, you need to start there, and be warned, there are spoilers for that book ahead.We begin with the premise from that surprising revelation at the end of Magic To the Bone Allie remembers nothing from the events of that book I suppose that could be annoying to some readers, but for me, I feel like that device gives us [...]


  2. A freaky ending, an interesting magic system, and mysterious societies lurking on the fringe have convinced me to read the third book But, I have my reservations It s hard to pin down how I feel about Ms Beckstrom I don t dislike her, but I m not particularly attached to her either Combine that with paragraph after paragraph of tedious detail and this isn t a series I m excited about I can t tell you how tired I am of reading the same phrasing to describe Allie s magic I got it the first time Th [...]


  3. I complain sometimes about urban fantasy heroines who keep racking up and improbable powers over the course of a series, eventually becoming such spectacular demigoddesses that it would take a small army to give them so much as a black eye.That s one problem Allie Beckstrom doesn t have I m beginning to think Allie needs powers to deal with everything Devon Monk is throwing at her Monk is great maybe a little too great at describing the agony of trekking all over Portland in the rain with a b [...]



  4. Another good one I have to stop myself after this one or I ll devour the whole series in one go and that would be bad.In the world of this series magic has been discovered and harnessed and is sold like a utility Anyone can use it if they ve got the means to buy it or they only use it for tiny things It also demands a secondary price for itself, giving the user a fever, headache, pain, even blackouts in the aftermath of its use It s an interesting world Set in Portland, Oregon, Devon Monk s Alli [...]


  5. Magic with a twist Devon Monk s second Allie Beckstrom book, Magic In the Blood is just as good as the first This world is filled with magic available for those who can use itovided they re willing to pay the price That price is pain Small magics Maybe a headache, fever, or a light rash and a few old memories Big magic Bad flu and broken bones and gaps in the memory Blood magic Death Allie s mostly recovered from the coma caused by her use of alot of magic to save a guy she supposedly fell in lo [...]


  6. For me, this book was frustrating to review and read, especially the first third of this book Allison, is still suffering the effects of losing 3 weeks of her memories from the events in Magic to the Bone That includes all memories of her so called love entanglement with the mysterious Zavyion Jones, who, like it or not, I don t trust How can we The story is told in the POV of Allison, and not the other characters in the book I don t even trust her fathers newest wife 6 to have her best interest [...]


  7. hmmm, still really like the magic system in this Felt less complete than book 1 Guess with 7 books to go you can t let the story develop too far Still will probably continue on to the next book.


  8. This was a pretty decent follow up to the first book and went some way to improving on the characterization that I felt was lacking in book one, Magic to the Bone.Having the main character, Allie Beckstom, have her memories reset back to her back to her 25th birthday, which was the opening scene of book one, was both a blessing and a curse for us as a reader A blessing because it gave us a chance to get to know the love interest, Zayvion Jones character a little , and for them to try and build a [...]


  9. SPOILERS 3.5 stars Ummm I still really enjoyed the series so far The writer does a great job getting to know Allie I just wish she wasn t always so beat up all the time she gets her ass kicked than Rachel Morgan and that s a lot But at least she s not a baby about it and can handle the pain Zayvion Jones is still a mystery to me Why was this secret Authority soooo secret anyway Why couldn t he just tell her before And now that she knows, will he be honest with her about it all Not be such a sec [...]


  10. You know how frustrating it is when you know that you know something but you just can t remember it Someone s name or the name of a place or something that happened I say it comes from getting older but for Allie Beckstrom it comes from using too much magic.There is always a price to be paid for using magic Rule No 1 Allie can offer to swap a fever for using magic, or a head cold, but there is always some price In this book, Allie discovers she is even magical than she previously thought The ma [...]


  11. First thing, has Allie ever heard of a rain coat I have a very nice lined Anne Klein black rain jacket with a removable hood Although Sacramento gets half the rain of Portland, I use it instead of wool hats, wool jackets, no umbrellas Does she want to suffer So many times when she s soaked I think, why in the hell would you not have a thick rain jacket Ridiculous In the last book Allie had forgotten a big chunk of time because she used too much magic and it included falling in love with Zayvion [...]


  12. Loved it As with the first book, Allie has immediate presence and energy The story is vibrant and alive The take on magic and it s consequences is original and supports an interesting story Zay is hot, if overly mysterious I like the build of Allie s relationship with Violet and look forward to seeing how that plays out It s just a good read, all urban fantasy fans should pick it up.


  13. Local Oregon author whose series is set in a slightly altered version of Portland I enjoyed this book and the main character Allie is one tough cookie I m excited to see where the author takes her Can t wait for the next book in November


  14. Excellent and exciting installment in the Allie Beckstrom series I did not even think of taking the series in the direction that Mrs Monk has seen in her brilliant imagination with Allie s father No spoilers in this review though


  15. I read book 1 over 5 years ago and thought it was only ok So this book has been sitting there for years I gave it a go, but could not push through


  16. I am loving Allie Beckstrom She has such a wit about her and a sharp sense of humor She s all sarcasm And in Magic in the Blood , the second installment in Devon Monk s Allie Beckstrom series, you really get to witness these qualities that I personally love in a kick ass lead heroine.That s the perfect description for Allie Even though she isn t a gun wielding, knife throwing, kick boxing chick, she is totally kick ass She s got magic after all She s a Hound Someone whose job is to track magical [...]


  17. Allie Beckstrom, bad ass Hound in Portland, Oregon, is back She might not remember her last adventure but she s definitely living with the consequences Something in her remembers Zayvion Jones but can she trust the thought that they were than just friends He s a hard man to read but Allie might have to trust him and his advice about some powerful people who police the use of magic People her father was involved with.But there isn t time to dwell on her missing memories because the police s magi [...]


  18. This book picks up a short while after the first book ended Allie still remembers almost nothing about the events in the previous book She s relocated to a nicer apartment building and she still owes the police a statement about what happened the day of her father s murder She s summoned by the police to give her statement and while she s on the bus she s threatened by a newly released man she had helped put into jail He uses blood magic to put a glyph into her body and gives her one day bring P [...]


  19. Got to admit these books are growing on me Devon Monk had created a world that is extremely interesting For me, there is not much good in Allie s world, at all It is infested with horrible people, death magic, blood magic and just really insane things Besides Allie s life, I haven t come across much that I find worth saving, which interests me Magic In the Blood, starts a few weeks after the events in Magic to the Bone Allie is healing and still trying to piece together the events that forced he [...]


  20. Seems like ever since the debut of Harry Dresdan, we have been inundated with stories about people who see the things in the world around us the rest of us don t see Not so nice things Things that are downright scary Things that populate what we assumed to be just our collective mythologies Magic in the Blood is a book that doesn t break much new ground Allie Beckstrom is just such a person who sees magic and can use magic in a world much like our own A world like our own Well, not really The wo [...]


  21. Magic in the Blood is a great continuation of the Allie Beckstrom series I really enjoyed Allie s sarcastic sense of humor Zayvion is one of the sweetest male lead s I ve read in a long time I REALLY get sick of the asshole hero after a while I mean, alpha does not have to be synonymous with jerk Serioulsy, authors sigh Monk shows how much Zayv cares for Allie through the little things, like when he leaves a rose on her breakfast table Her descriptions of the emotion in his eyes, or the gestures [...]


  22. I kind of liked this one better than the first book of the series, but I ll admit that the main factor was that it featured a lot less paranormal romance kind of scenes.The book was moderately exciting, sometimes it even got interesting, but overall it s not worth than 3 stars Again there was a lot of stupidity in the book Allie is still dumb and naive not to mention how ignorant she is , and other characters also make decisions that make no sense whatsoever not rationally and not emotionally v [...]


  23. I think I have a new favorite series Magic in the Blood is captivating The story happens not long after the first book, Magic to the Bone Allie is asked for help by the Magical Enforcement Response Corps to help find missing girls But that is not all what she is facing She starts seeing her Dad s ghost and there are watercolor people who seem to eat on her magic It is fast and tight paced from the beginning until the cliff hanger ending Allison Allie Beckstrom is a strong, if yet stubborn heroin [...]


  24. one thing i hate about this series is the indecision in this series it s annoying the reader is annoying it s like she s got a mouth full of marbles and it s distracting as all hellyes she pulls it out but she s no one bad ass she s also so foolish even so in this second booke doesn t listen to people she doesn t remember anything and it s so annoying.is chics a dumbassalways recapping always getting it wrong alway misplace rebellion normally the rebellion works out sometimes also her word choi [...]


  25. Second book in the Allie Beckstrom series.This one has us following Allie on a Hounding job for the police while trying to figure out when she started to see ghosts Add to that her still confused feelings about Zayvion, trying to dodge her father s ghost, getting tangled up in some bad blood magic and trying to keep the rest of her life organized well this girl would have no luck if it weren t for the bad luck in her life.Again, a good page turner for an urban fantasy Allie takes her share of be [...]


  26. This one was a bit rough To be fair I m reading this book, which is 2 of a 9 book series, out of order I started reading the series for the Endeavour Award at book 3 And went back after reading 3 4 and 5 and read 1 which was like a year or two ago In this one Allie doesn t know the people I think of as her friends, she s confused and broken in a quite a bit different way And she s a bit of a whiner There s a LOT of extra unnecessary detail The pace is a whole lot slower than in the later books I [...]


  27. Had a lot of the same issues as I did with the first book Aly takes stupid chances, knowing they re stupid, because she can Great reasoning there.Insta love I get to experience it again, because she forgot the first time LOLThe magic still doesn t make a lot of sense to me It s almost too complicated and seems like the author isn t sure how to describe it And there doesn t seem to be any limits regardless of what anyone says.Still, I like it Enough that I ll continue.A bit of my thoughts on boo [...]


  28. It started out as kind of a paranormal Perils of Pauline, with all kinds of magical mayhem attacking her, but it leveled out nicely after that I like the Allie character, and all of the other characters stay true to form Here s a quote from this book It is amazing how it doesn t matter how much pain I m in, I can always feel one thing I hit the ground hard, banged my elbow, my hip, scraped the side of my face Managed not to hit my head, break my hold on the Reveal spell, or impale myself on the [...]


  29. I didn t like it quite as well as the first book, but am looking forward to 3 I wish her amnesia were not quite so complete in certain areas, or that the flashes that came back got to stay and Zayvion was too absent in this one That relationship was of high interest to me, and it took too long to get back to it.
