Magic at the Gate by Devon Monk

"Allie Beckstrom’s lover, Zayvion Jones, is a Guardian of the Gate, imbued with both light and dark magic and responsible for ensuring that those energies don’t mix. But Zayvion lies in a coma, his soul trapped in death’s realm. And when Allie discovers that the only way to save Zayvion is to sacrifice her very own magical essence, she makes a decision that may have grave consequences for the entire world."
For the 5Th book on the series, Devon Monk did a good job with it. I don't think is one of her best work on the story line but it was a good enough to pass my test.
In the other book or heroin has been a little in control of herself and other things but for this book she is not in control of anything, and everyone that she love and care about are in danger, she is still possess by her dead father but there is much more to the story because i think we are going to find out why she lose so much of her memory to start with.
With this one we only had a taste but i know there is more to this and the next book is going to be a eye opening for the story.
The war in this book is a little silly if you ask me but the reality is power make many people want more, and that is maybe what is going on in here.
the book was funny and it have very strong battle scene, and no only that but the mayor sacrifice that she is to do to save her lover life and soul.
over all the book was okay, i like it and all but it wasn't anything extraordinary, and i know Devon Monk can make that happen with her plot and her character, also i know that maybe this one is just the opening for the real battle to be fought between this groups.
let see what else this author does with this story and how many more book are going to be in this war, to tell the true maybe she can only go around this for so long maybe 3 book or 4 tops i don't think putting this war for more than that would be smart, we have to give sometime for the character to heal.
have fun and keep reading
