Publisher's Summary

Cass Clereaux is good at two things: finding treasure and killing demons. Lying low is a close third - but not because she wants to be good at hiding. Cass is a FireSoul, one of the unlucky few to inherit a piece of a dragon's soul. On the surface, the perks are sweet - she has the power to find and steal any type of magical treasure, including the powers of other supernaturals.
But it doesn't come without a price; stealing powers requires that she kill, and others would destroy her if they discover what she is. In a world full of magic, hiding her powers is the only way to survive. Finding magical artifacts is the only ways to pay the bills. But it's a dangerous job when you can't use your magic.
When Aidan Merrick, the most powerful shifter in the city, hires her to find an ancient scroll, she doesn't want to take the job. His immense amount of power reminds her of too much of murky memories from a past she can't remember. But she has no choice. The scroll will reveal what she is. And if anyone finds out, she's dead.
Ancient Magic features kick-butt heroines, a hot hero, and otherworldly adventure.

Brilliant, great characters and story - read it!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Absolutely. I listened to the book and got caught up in the story and with the characters. To an extent that I purchased the next book in the series and listened to that without remembering to come and review this. It's really easy to listen to and enjoy the story with a very strong female lead (backed by two others).


Who was your favorite character and why?

Cass and Aidan. I've got to pick two not because the characters need each other to work but because they work so well together. In this book and the next. Saying that Del and Nix and their friends are all really good characters. It's a book that was seriously so enjoyable that I can't fault anyone and thought that all of the characters were excellent!


What does Laurel Schroeder bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Really good voice for our main character, Cass. She makes the character sound a mixture of confident and nervous, strong yet fragile. But still kick-ass. I also like the authority and confidence that she gives to Aidan.


Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I loved it. I seriously finished it and purchased the next one. Really good!!

good story

too much going over the same information especially for a short book, felt like padding out, not necessary.
