Editorial Reviews

Review

"If you're into snarky heroines, murder mysteries, kickass fight scenes, wild new worlds, and a dash of romance--Sunaya is your girl!" - Angela Roquet, author of the LANA HARVEY, REAPERS INC. Series.

"I appreciated Sunaya's character as well as the supporting characters and all of the inter-relationships between these characters. It really brought the story to life. The story took some unexpected twists, and I didn't even bother trying to figure out where it was leading. The ending was a surprise, and I look forward to book 2." - Rebecca Hamilton, USA TODAY Bestselling Author of the FOREVER GIRL Series and the CONDUIT Series.

About the Author

Jasmine Walt is obsessed with books, chocolate, and sharp, pointy objects. Somehow, those three things melded together in her head and transformed into a desire to write. Usually fantastical stuff, with a healthy dose of action and romance. Her characters are a little (okay, a lot) on the snarky side, and they swear, but they mean well. Even the villains sometimes.

When Jasmine's not working on her next book, you can find her working on her dao sword form, spending time with her family, or binge-watching superhero shows on Netflix.

I discovered this author by accident and decided to try it, I was actually expecting to be disapointed by this book.
But I really liked it, it's a bit slow to pick up in the beginning and there are a few slow spots in the story, but overall the novel is fast-paced.
The heroine is 24 according to the book but she seemed younger to me.
A few overused plots: heroine with a big mouth, clueless leader who put his trust in the wrong people...
The worldbuilding is OK although there's still a lot missing (where's the magic coming from, how does this city-state country work...)

I liked that the heroine was flawed and owed up to her mistakes, that she fought with her friends and felt bad about it... that there isn't the old and tried love triangle. It's a fresh view on shifters, mages, witches.

I do understand the reviewer who says the storyline is unfinished. The bookplot (the silver murders) are solved but the series plot (the big bad guy, the drugs, Fenris...) are left unfinished and I'd really would like to read the next book now.

I loved this book! It was exciting and interesting! It put a new spin on the shifters and mages genre and for the better! I recommend this book to anyone looking for a new series in the urban fantasy genre. I can not wait for the next book. I give this a five stars because I would read this book again!

I understand this is Jasmine Walt’s first book and I would applaud her for her efforts. Burned by Magic is set in the city of Solantha, inhabited by Humans and Shifters and governed by Mages. The Shape Shifters are at the bottom of the social order, with humans only slightly higher, then Mages who rule from the top. Sunaya Baine, Enforcer and shape-shifter, is down on her luck, working behind a bar in a multi-species nightclub, to make ends meet, when she gets an emergency call from her Mentor that changes her life forever. At his request, she takes his Enforcer case file and leaves his home. The case he’s been working on proves to have ramifications that run all the way from the offices of the Chief Mage, to affect every shifter clan in the city. Solantha's teetering on the edge of a Civil war, and only Sunaya has all the pieces needed to avert disaster. Provided, of course, she can get out of prison long enough to put them together.
What a fun read! I thought Burned by Magic was a great start to the series. It was well written and set in a fascinating culture of magic, intrigue, and action. I certainly was drawn into the story from Sunaya’s confrontations and deeply-buried secrets, to her shy hedge witch friend Comenius, to the enigmatic Chief Mage (with whom Sunaya has a growing attraction) . Their interactions and motivations are the framework upon which the story is built.The action in the book is fast-paced and convincing, and the world-building's detailed and exciting. I certainly recommend it for any Fantasy lovers reading list and look forward to the next book in the series.

A very enjoyable read. The heroine is full of many admirable traits but her impulsiveness is a near fatal flaw. Fortunately, there's a cast of surrounding characters to help her out when the going gets tough. Intriguing conflict exists in this universe between the mages, shifters and humans, with our heroine stuck in the middle trying to obtain justice for the dead while coming to grips with her budding powers.

This is an excellent start for the series, fresh twist on shifters and magic and enjoyed the setting very much. Had to purchase second book right away to keep the story going and see what happens next. Highly recommend.

This is the first time I have read a story by Jasmine Walt and I sure WISH that I had read her stories before. I really enjoyed reading this book. The author's imagination gives you a wonderful glimpse into a complex system for three different races, the mage's, shifters and humans. The author's characters are well thought out and I enjoyed reading about each and every one. I can't wait to read the next book in this series, as I found myself unable to put this one down for a second. I sure hope that you enjoy this book as much as I did. Thanks so much for writing such a great story and continuing the series, I really appreciate it.

Sunaya had a lot of magical powers, but she had to hide it. Magic was only to be practiced by certain Mages. She worked for an agency that tried to keep magic, shifters, etc. punished or hidden from sight. She did all right until she found out her mentor had been killed. She lost it and was found out to have magic. She was put in a cell. Her two good friends tried to help her. Another friend, one she didn't know about, got her out and then she was afraid she would be studied and subject to torture. No more about the book...you will just have to read it and find out all the twists and turns the author, Jasmine Walt has put into her story. It is definitely a good story to keep people of all ages entertained.
