Summary

Waking up in hell was not Del Bellator's idea of a good time. She'd rather be back on earth, killing demons and hunting down magical treasure for her shop, Ancient Magic.
Turns out that escaping hell is easy - it's staying out that's hard. Del's death magic defies the laws of the supernatural world. Worse - she doesn't know how to control it. If others learn what she is, it's guaranteed persecution by the Order of the Magica. And Del already has a deadly and forbidden secret - she shares a soul with a dragon.
Things get sticky when Roarke Fallon, Warden of the Underworld, shows up on her doorstep wanting to drag her back to hell. He's a one-of-a-kind shifter - the most powerful she's ever met - and he's set his sights on her. Helping him catch an escaped demon gives her an opportunity to win her freedom, but only if she teams up with Roarke. She'll have to use her forbidden magic to get the job done. And that is a recipe for discovery...and disaster.

Sadly Formulaic

Any additional comments?

The start of The Seeker series within the Dragon's Gift series is sadly similar to the first book of the The Hunress series - girl with secret power meets Impossiby Powerful Man, is thrown into a situation where she has no choice but to work with him and, OF COURSE, they fall in love over the course of the book...

Yaaaawn!

Nobody could see that one coming... etc.

Hopefully the second Seeker book will settle the series into something better the way the Huntress series did and at least THIS Impossibly Powerful Man isn't from Scotland so his accent isn't taxing the narrator too badly.

Ghosts, Ruins, Demons, and Romance

As soon as this book ended, I bought the next one. I thought I might wait, but nope, it went right to the audible shopping cart.

Magic Undying is a phantasmagoric romp through archaeological sites and Arthurian legend. The heroine, Del, starts the book out dead and trapped in hell - and things just get dicier for her from there. From ancient crypts to crumbling castles, her adventures transport her into a world of ghosts and mystery. Of the three heroines in this series, Del is my favorite so far, and I connect more with Del and Roarke than I did with Cass and Aiden. I think that is because, from the get-go, Del is up a creek. She has more to worry about than getting discovered by the Order of the Magica, namely escaping from hell, slow acting poison with an elusive antidote, massing demon armies, ancient riddles, ghostly powers that come without an instruction manual, as well as dealing with the loss of her old magical gifts - not to mention a romance with the man who is chasing her down. Each of these play a role in her emotional struggles, tugging her in all directions at once. Hall parallels her with Guinevere, a woman forced to take action in the face of an impossible reality. Del's path is so intriguing, that when the book ended, I wasn't ready.

One of my favorite parts of this book is the author's note, where Linsey Hall (an archaeologist) talks about her myth building process. I think it is fascinating to see how Hall selected (and excluded) various archaeological sites and legends to sculpt the mythology of this book. She explains her decisions, liberties, and inspiration - and I like her myth of Guinevere.

֍ If you like tomb raider and magical adventures, you will enjoy this richly woven tale.


BTW, Laurel Schroeder could read my anything, and I would listen to it all day long. I love her voice. I listen while I work, and I never find my attention drifting as she keeps things zipping along. I did not like her voice for Aiden in first series - but she does really well with everyone in this book. I especially like how she voices Nix, and I can't wait until she is the main character.

If ain't broke why fix it

New characters but almost the exact same plot as the first book of Cass's, right down to a tall, dark, and handsome foreigner. Still entertaining but less engaging.
