    Very good!

    I just loved the book. It has a very original story, with all sorts of familiar stuff, like the tree of life, mythical creatures, and others but all bind in a way different of what you're accustomed. I adore Sage and her nerdy and sarcastic comebacks! The chemistry between her and the others characters is very detailed and involving. Can't wait to read next one!

    I have no idea what words to use

    As I sit here staring at the blinking cursor, not yet recovered from my story hangover, I realize I have no idea what words to use to convey what I just went through with this book. Especially to be more relevant than the insipid “I liked it!” or “it was great!” without giving away the best parts of the story. This book combines all the twists, deceptions, and double-crosses of my favorite political thrillers with all the forces of the unseen of classic fables, fairy tales, and myths, along with complex, quirky characters that run away with the story. One of this author’s great skills is her ability to create a novice heroine who doesn’t have the first clue about anything happening around her, and then allowing us to learn and experience it all with her. That makes for very compelling reading. I’ve only just finished this book and already I want to know more about Sage and ASSET. I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author.

    A paranormal series starter

    Everything you know about magic is wrong! It's real, deadly, and inescapable. Sage Cynwrig knows her way around a pair of twenty-sided dice, and has forgotten more spells than you'll ever know. But when her mother is killed by a weapon of magical destruction (WMD), fantasy merges into a bizarre version of reality. Her boss goes full troll (warts and all), vampires start hitting on her, and shadowhunters stalk her in the darkness. Just when Sage thinks things can't get any weirder, a supernatural pick-up artist, calling himself an A.S.S.E.T. agent, tries to kill her. The truth about Sage's lineage comes crashing down around her when her birthmark morphs into the Tree of Life. She is a Terra, part of a race of people meant to stop evil magic like the WMD that killed her mother. Too bad no one bothered to tell her that, or teach her how to use her unique gifts. With a huge target on her head, and the WMD still in enemy hands, Sage must figure out the key to neutralizing it before she becomes its next victim. A Weapon of Magical Destruction by Katie Salidas is an amazing start to a new paranormal series. This is an urban fantasy origin story as our heroine slowly awakens to the world around her. There was some great world building in this story. The characters have been created so well and I look forward to seeing what comes next for them. Excellent story line and plot for this series. Lots of twists and turns with action as well. Can't wait to read the next instalment in the series. Recommend reading. I have been provided with a copy of A Weapon of Magical Destruction by the author through StoryOrigin for an impartial review.

    Step Into Magic

    Sage Cynwrig's life dramatically changed with the death of her mother in a plane crash. Mark Sorenson, besides being her mother’s boss and the Director of Operations of the Phoenix office of A.S.S.E.T., had been a surrogate father to her. He was always there for her, someone she could lean on when her mother was away on assignment. Maybe not by blood, but in all other ways, he was family and the only reason she came here to A.S.S.E.T. when he asked her to. When Mark had to leave the office for two minutes – which turned into much longer – Sage closed her eyes to ward off the migraine. She saw fireworks in the sky in her dream, but looked down at bloody wounded bodies in the midst of a magical battle. She saw paranormal creatures fighting with strange weapons. A cloaked figure in blue popped up in front of her, judged her worthiness, then held out blue hands forming a ball of light. He threw them at her feet and each exploded, burning the grass to ash as he laughed. The essence of her mother’s spirit poured into her heart. One small white ember of her mother landed on her wrist and a tree branded into her skin, its roots digging into her veins. She heard a faint voice calling her. The battle disappeared, she woke, and Mark was staring at her wrist! Finding out more of what her mother did sets Sage on a path she did not want to be part of, involved with people she is not sure she should trust. She learns that having the mark of the Tree of Life will draw dark magic to her. When someone tries to kill her, she begins to take things seriously. Real magic is nothing like her gaming adventures! She could die if she doesn’t find allies she can trust and a way to neutralize the weapon of magical destruction before it takes her life. This was an exciting book with twists and turns happening everywhere. For a young woman whose only experience with magic comes from a game console, this is a major life adjustment! Will she join A.S.S.E.T. and let them teach her the skills she needs to master? Grab your copy of the book and join the magical battle!
