  • Alex is back !

    Well Alex is back and her life is all set to implode. She's made an enemy of her grandfather's general but saving the children that the Fae woman was torturing is worth it to Alex. Now she needs to heal them but with the human council hunting her down safety is paramount. That isn't the only problem Alex has though because with rogue sorcerers attacking the Fae now feel with humanity divided its time to end the peace treaty and attack and ultimately conquer ! Well let's face it the girl just cannot seem to catch a break ! Alex just seems to constantly have to fight for what she sees as right. I am increasingly enjoying the way she's collecting allies and she definitely needs them. Things are changing though as the Vampire she loves is going through changes that I'm not a hundred percent sure will ultimately make Alex happy. Plus someone very important from her past is back and that pushes all of Alex's buttons. My only criticism of this instalment is that I really wanted more from the Fae but I cannot deny the ending means life for Alex is about to get very busy going forward. This voluntary take is of a copy I requested and my thoughts and comments are honest and I believe fair

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Action-packed but slightly disappointing

    Three and a half stars. I don't know why this didn't grab me more TBH. Things have reached a climax. Rogue sorcerers have destroyed the Unified Church in Rome and Alex is desperate to prevent a war, whether between the Fae and humans or humans and paranaturals she doesn't care. There are battles and more paranormals than you can shake a stick at, Alex has to decide what/who she really is, and pick a side, can she bring everyone together and win before it descends into out-and-out war? As she finally understands the truth of her halfer status she begins to understand her magic and how to use it properly. Sounds great right? Demons, fae, vampires, sorcerers, shifters, witches and more! Yet this felt more like the build up to a finale than the epic battle that it was - maybe because it ended in 'to be continued'? So, I enjoyed it and the battle scenes were crazy scary but I didn't love it. I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review.

  • I like the series

    Through NetGalley, I received a free copy of OF METTLE & MAGIC (Book 5 of The MagicSmith urban fantasy series) by L.R. Braden in exchange for an honest review. Alex Blackwood has solved the most urgent problem at hand and decides to turn herself in to the authorities so that she can work with them to avoid the upcoming war. However, when the Unified Church in Rome is destroyed and Alex fails to establish a hoped-for alliance, Alex must regroup and find new alliances to because war is now imminent on three fronts. In order to succeed, Alex will have to expand her knowledge and control of her powers as well as her knowledge and implementation of both political and battle strategy. I like this book and enjoy the series. I recommend this book to fans of urban fantasy. #OfMettleandMagic #NetGalley

  • Great next book in the series!

    Thank you Netgalley for the ARC! This is a great book to continue the series! I love stories where there is a strong female who takes on challenges including saving a bunch of children. There is fighting and intrigue and more battles. There is a lot going on in the book but it's not overpowering. The pace is perfect. Alex's relationship with James continues to mature and grow. There are also a lot of characters that work very well together. I loved the book which is awesome as often series get strained as they get longer. I still can't wait for the next book!

    Thanks for your feedback!
