  • I liked it.

    Through NetGalley, I received a free copy of CASTING SHADOWS (Book 4 of the MagicSmith Series) by L.R. Braden in exchange for an honest review. The Purity candidate has been elected and discrimination against fae and magic users has become the accepted norm. Alex and her group are still trying to lie low and avoid conflict, but crimes against the magical are escalating, and no one is seeking justice for those harmed. When Alex learns that May, the young sister of Alex’s friend Emma, didn’t come home from school, Alex has a seeing that a fae took May. Alex can’t let the world know that the fae are kidnapping children because it would flip hostilities into war, so Alex must brave the realms of faery, defy her grandfather, overcome her ignorance of her magical abilities, and defeat new and old foes to accomplish her quest. I enjoy this series and liked this book. It seemed to go by too quickly and left me wanting more. I recommend this book to fans of the series. I recommend the series to fans of urban fantasy featuring vampires, werewolves, fae, witches, wizards, and interdimensional travel. #CastingSahdows #NetGalley

  • Highly recommended

    An excellent addition to a great series that I love. It's as engrossing as usual and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Great characters, world building and plot. Can't wait to read the next installment. Highly recommended. Many thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for this ARC, all opinions are mine.

  • Our halfer blacksmith rescues kidnapped children

    After reading a series of disappointing books that had me DNFing left, right and centre this was a breath of fresh air. Set in a world where humans and the fae were at war and are now in an uneasy peace, with pure human bigotry on the rise, when werewolves and vampires are still a secret, one young woman stands at the centre of it all. Alex Blackwood, our halfer blacksmith is back. After the events of the last book it is only a matter of time before the videos of Alex confessing she is immune to iron and Sophie transforming into a werewolf are broadcast. Then May’s little sister goes missing and Alex discovers she’s been abducted by a fae. What follows had enough magic, battles, vampires, strange creatures and intrigue to keep me glued to my Kindle. If you used to love PNR and/or Urban Fantasy but you’ve read all the books by your favourite authors and the others are all a bit meh, I highly recommend this series which is just getting into its stride. I cannot wait for the next book, but I fear Alex’s love life may not be all plain sailing ... I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review.

  • I have really liked this series

    Thank you Netgalley. I really like this series and was looking forward to this installment. I was not disappointed! There was a good plot that made sense throughout. There is some romance but it was not such a major part that it was distracting. I kinda wish there was a little more heat between Alex and James. It has only been 3 or 4 months that all this is happening after all. I thought this was going to be a 4 book series but with the end I think there will be another which makes me very happy.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Manipulative Fae

    This book sees Alex stuck between two sides as the humans are getting more bold when it comes to those who are Fae and it looks like the Fae just might be gearing up for war. Alex may be considered a halfer by many but at heart she's human but have her recent actions cost more than they saved ? No matter how troubling that thought is when young May a talented violinist is kidnapped Alex is determined to rescue her but what if along the way she discovers nothing is ever an accident in the land of Faerie ? Shifters, Vampires and Fae all play a part but it's Alex that bears the brunt of the trials here. There is no doubt that the Fae have their own agendas and we do see just how cruel and manipulative they can be. Alex learns something about herself along the way which leaves questions about her heritage. I enjoyed her travels through Faerie but for this reader her odd romance still needs to convince me. Still I did enjoy it and will definitely look for the next book. This voluntary take is of a copy I requested from Netgalley and my thoughts and comments are honest and I believe fair
