Review: Another solid installment. Devon Monk has created a truly action and magic filled world where you are always at the edge of your pants. This book probably has the least relationship development among Allie and her dad or other people, but we see a lot of relationship development between other characters. Shame and Terric is probably the most important relationship we see developing and progressing. And it was beautiful. Then again, everything with Shame is beautiful :-P
We learn more about the creepy Collins and Cody. And all of our favorites characters are there. The final battle scene is so epic and written so well, you can see it unfolding.
The book really set you up for what is the come in the final Allie Beckstrom book. The cliffhanger left my jaws dropped and wanting the next book in my hands.
I still have a problem with some of the plot points coming across as confusing. The pace in the novel is so fast, it is easy to miss important details.
I love this series and I really encourage people to read it. It's an action packed, heart felt addition to the series.
Sex: No sex, some kissing.
Violence: Pretty violent book, but nondescript violence. You don't have to have a strong stomach, but you do need to be okay with fighting scenes.
Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
Series rating: 4 out of 5 stars
"Do we get weapons?" Shame asked.
I nodded. "Bowling balls."

It will never cease to amaze me just how much of a whirlwind Allie is. She draws people to her like a moth to a flame, but cannot be corrupted. In fact, she seems to be the only person the corrupted sections of the Authority cannot seem to put down. Of course she wouldn't have made it this far without her friends, but their utter loyalty to her only further shows her strength and fortitude. Yet despite all this, Allie still cannot quite grasp her true worth. Yes she has her own inner confidence in her skill as a magic user, but as a leader, not so much. However, I think a lot of the events in Magic Without Mercy may have started to open up her eyes, and once she fully believes in herself, she will only be that much stronger.
It completely baffles me that with such a far reaching organization as the Authority, there wouldn't be more checks and balances in place to help stem some of the corruption. Of course the saying goes that absolute power corrupts absolutely, and that is what these people hold.Read more ›
I am still completely lost when it comes to Allie's father. One minute I felt like he is truly interested in helping Allie, and the next I'm convinced he has a massive ulterior motive. I'm also still really upset about Allie not having her personal interior magic still. I don't know why but it really bugs me. I love Allie and Zayvion even more as the books pile on. Shame and Terric continue to be my favorite two allies involved in Allies life and I love reading about their love hate relationship.
There is always a ton of action involved and story development added with each Allie book. Just when you think Allie will be able to catch a break the ending throws a massive curve ball in her plans and moves her back into battle mode. By the last page you know where the story is going next and I cant wait to read how it plays out.
