Mercenary mage Alex Dering has spent most of her life killing deadly monsters for only peanuts in return—until the world’s most legendary immortal hires her for a prestigious assignment in Europe. In return for hunting down misbehaving supernaturals, he’s going to pay her a boatload of cash.

But a straightforward slash and burn extermination in Zurich gets a whole lot more complicated for Alex when a gang of vampires steals one piece of a magical artifact that, once assembled, has the power to kill every supernatural in the city. Well out of her depth, she’s forced into a precarious partnership with a notorious assassin, a man as seductive as he is deadly. With a band of killers hot on their trail, Alex has no choice but to trust him—even if that trust could expose her most guarded secret. 


Alex is a mercenary who works to keep the supernatural being in line and protecting the humans. Currently she’s in Zurich working for a mage protecting the city when what should be routine turns into her getting bit by a vampire hybrid that causes those around her to question what she really is because a human would have turned. Alex has a deep dark secret she has magic but she’s spent her whole life keeping it buried deep inside. Alex comes from a long line of dragon born which have been hunted to extinction at least thought to be.

Alex is working on a case to find three magical orbs before they can be stolen and united to create a way to remove all magic. She unexpectedly teams up with Logan known as Slayer who is an assassin currently working in the area. Teamed up with an unlikely partner the pair work together to find the orbs but neither one can deny the attraction to each other. Can Alex keep it together long enough to solve the case or will her in magic come out and change everything? What about her feelings for Logan? 

I like Alex she’s a kick ass monster hunter who isn’t afraid to change down a group of hybrid vampires. I’m curious to see where her dragon born future will lead her now that she’s started to learn what she can do. I wasn’t sure about Logan but he’s grown on me through he book and clearly they have some kind of steamy connection. I’m curious to see how things are going to work out in their future. 

I’ve had this one on my kindle for far longer than I would like to admit. I love the green cover it was calling my name from the moment I first saw it. While Magic Edge is a spin off of another series you don’t have to read the prior to enjoy Alex’s story. Magic’s Edge is set in a urban fantasy world where the humans live among the super natural beings. I love the concept it’s a unique spin on the urban fantasy world with an exciting story. I love the characters I felt I was really able to connect with Alex she’s just one of those characters you can connect with. I really like the chemistry between Alex and Logan it really works. This is my first novel by the author but I’m a quick fan I love her story telling the book just flows it’s hard to put down. I can’t wait to see what happens in the next books.
