Description

The latest Broken Magic novel from national bestselling author Devon Monk.

Marked by Life and Death magic, Shame Flynn and Terric Conley are "breakers"—those who can use magic to its full extent. Most of the time, they can barely stand each other, but they know they have to work together to defeat a common enemy—rogue magic user Eli Collins.

Backed by the government, Eli is trying to use magic as a weapon by carving spells into the flesh of innocents and turning them into brainless walking bombs. To stop him, Shame and Terric will need to call on their magic, even as it threatens to consume them—because the price they must pay to wield Life and Death could change the very fate of the world...and magic itself.

        February 24, 2014
        Monk’s second Broken Magic urban fantasy (after Hell Bent) is so weighed down with exposition that the story never gets off the ground. Even returning readers apparently need to be brought up to speed about a magical apocalypse and the resulting emergency of Soul Complements, who struggle against bad guys while wielding the ability to “break magic into dark and light.” Numerous characters, introduced by their abbreviated backstories, never take form as people. The book careens from cliffhanger to cliffhanger, with inconsistencies draining any sense of sustained suspense. Shame, the protagonist, can make magic “do anything wanted it to do,” but four pages later, he laments, “just because we had all the magic at our fingertips didn’t mean I could heal him.” The last sentence of one chapter, “Then magic blew us to bits,” is immediately undercut by the opening of the next: “In that explosion of power we made our choice.” Fantasy need not be bound by the laws of our reality; a writer can, in all good conscience, blow something up with magic. But she has to really blow it up. Agent: Miriam Kriss, Irene Goodman Literary Agency.
