I’ve got so many good things to say about FLATLINE I’m not sure where to begin. I guess I’ll begin with what drew me to FLATLINE. I’ve been reading Urban Fantasy for over six years now, because of that I’m always searching for some new twist in the genre. The main character in FLATLINE is Kate, a medical doctor trying to finish her ER residency while trying to hide her dark magic from the mage council. That was enough of a twist for me to pick FLATLINE up and give it a try.
Did FLATLINE live up to my expectations? It one hundred percent did. The medical scenes in FLATLINE are awesome, I have no background in medicine so I don’t know for certain, but they sound a lot more real and accurate than any medical drama I’ve seen on TV. In addition to breaking away from the norm by having a doctor as main character, Kate uses a sword that isn’t a katana when she fights. The katana is a great blade, but it has been overhyped and without proper training a short sword is a far easier blade to wield.
If you follow my reviews you know I always take a deep dive into the world and magic system of every book I read. The world of Magic and Medicine is slowly explained without any info dumps. The explanation is done perfectly, there’s never a time where the characters are lecturing about background information they should already know. I’m also pretty certain that FLATLINE only starts the world building, I hope to see the world continue to grow and develop throughout the rest of the Medicine and Magic series. My only complaint about FLATLINE is the magic system. I hope it will be expanded on more, but for now it’s mostly handwavium to accomplish whatever is needed to advance the plot.
My all time favorite thing about FLATLINE was the lack of insta-lust! This is horribly overused in paranormal romance, and usually creates a rather uninspiring and lack luster romance. Instead in FLATLINE there is a growing friendship between Aron and Kate with plenty of physical attraction thrown in too, but their romance will be a slow burn and that’s my preference. Also Kate first meets Aron in what would normally be a sexy knight coming to the rescue of the damsel in distress situation, except Aron shows up to see Kate more than capable of handling the problem on her own. And the trope is continually flipped throughout FLATLINE as Kate saves Aron far more than he saves her.
The sequel to FLATLINE comes out today as well, I’m sure I’ll be mostly through POSTMORTEM by the time you read this review. I loved FLATLINE and SA Magnusson is now on my list of authors to follow. I highly recommend FLATLINE.
It is well crafted, well told, and characters fleshed out in reality, sas much as mages, vampires and shifters can be living in Minneapolis. I did think at the start it would be set ut of the states, some terms just fit more British but by chapter three they had gone. Romance in the future for the Archer and Doctor ? Plausible at this point. Can be a stand alone forthose that don't catch the need the whole story, and can eat just 2-3 potato chip and walk way, me I have bought the other book to see here this goes. Hope no spoilers given to ruined your desire to red and take he sep into book two. Highly recommend for those that want the thought of a speials walking among us, just don't wnt to meet them to find they are far worse then fiction.. a quick read if you have the time, lazy Sat etc.. or in my case a 45 min here and there.. reading by kindle and candle liht on a stormy night made the finish really pop, nice thunderstorm knocking out the power thakfully having a charged power pack didn't leave me unable to finish. Would not want to try all the action packed scenes, and unexpected plot twists and turns as a medical resident, they don't get enough sleep as they need anway.

This is one of those stories where the central character is both very likeable and also very annoying. Read it and find out. I'm really keen to read book 3!
