Magic in the Blood by Devon Monk



Magic stirred in me, offering whatever I wanted. With little more than a thought and a gesture or two, I could make magic do anything. So long as I was willing to pay the price...

"Allison Beckstrom knows better than most that when magic's involved, nothing is free. She's had to pay its price of migraines and forgetfulness while working as a Hound, tracing illegal spells back to their casters. And even though magic has stolen her recent memory--including her history with the man she supposedly fell in love with--Allie isn't about to give up on Hounding or the city she cares about.Then the police's magic enforcement division asks her to consult on what seems to be a straightforward missing-persons case. What begins as a way to make rent leads Allie into grave danger when the trail she's following draws her into the dark underworld of criminals, ghosts, and blood magic. There, Allie discovers it will take more than just magic to survive....Allison Beckstrom knows better than most that when magic's involved, nothing is free.

the second book on this series that i think is something new on his own. i like it the idea of have so much power that you can do anything but hey you have to remember there is always a price to pay for it.
the second book i like it a little more than the first, i still don't like that she forget things when she used magic it suck and i want her to remember everything that happen with her father, maybe boyfriend and things like that so she can learned to be with someone.
in this one well i think it was a surprise to see that there is more that what meet the eye in this book and i like it, the end for this one really make you want to read the book ( the first one didn't do that).
the book is action, magic, intrigue, good versus evil battles, and pure entertainment, you will not want to miss this book.
