Publisher's Summary

Cass Clereaux is good at two things: finding treasure and killing demons. Lying low is a close third - but not because she wants to be good at hiding. Cass is a FireSoul, one of the unlucky few to inherit a piece of a dragon's soul. On the surface, the perks are sweet - she has the power to find and steal any type of magical treasure, including the powers of other supernaturals.
But it doesn't come without a price; stealing powers requires that she kill, and others would destroy her if they discover what she is. In a world full of magic, hiding her powers is the only way to survive. Finding magical artifacts is the only ways to pay the bills. But it's a dangerous job when you can't use your magic.
When Aidan Merrick, the most powerful shifter in the city, hires her to find an ancient scroll, she doesn't want to take the job. His immense amount of power reminds her of too much of murky memories from a past she can't remember. But she has no choice. The scroll will reveal what she is. And if anyone finds out, she's dead.
Ancient Magic features kick-butt heroines, a hot hero, and otherworldly adventure.

Great Magical Adventure

This was definitely a quality magical/fantasy fiction with a lot to brag about. Everything from the author's take on magic, the world in which the story takes place, and the story line and theme itself were all interesting, exciting, and enjoyable. I listened to the entire audiobook in one day.

The main character, Cass, and her two female companions wake up in the middle of a field with few memories other than an instinctual urge to run. There is only one thing they do know about themselves... They are FireSouls, feared and hunted by all other magical beings for their ability to steal the magical abilities of others.

After meeting Aiden, a very wealthy and powerful magical being, she learns of an ancient scroll that reveals the identities and weaknesses of the most powerful magical beings in the world, including FireSouls. She works with Aiden in the hunt for this scroll with the intention of destroying it before anyone can read it, including Aiden. However, what she didn't expect were the feeling that both her and Aiden would develop for each other, or what other powerful magical beings might be looking for the same scroll...

The narration of this book was solid and fit the main character and the story very well. Definitely looking forward to similar performances in the future.

I received a free copy of this audiobook from the author, publisher, or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review. I was NOT required to write a positive review and this reflects my honest opinion of the work.

Surprisingly Good!

Let me start by saying, this is the third book by this particular narrator I've listened to and I think it's her best one yet. That said, it sort of broke my brain going from one set of characters to another.

I enjoyed Ancient Magic a lot more than I thought I would, and now I'm wondering when the rest come out on audio. I was mostly attracted to it by the awesome cover, and while the prologue was a touch boring, as soon as chapter 1 started, I was hooked. I absolutely loved the characters, the way the whole firesoul thing worked, and the magical towns in the middle of our world. I liked that the character was powerful but had good reason not to use her magic. It made each usage have weight to it. I also liked the coffee shop. It was incredibly clever.

There were many times I found myself thinking, "OMG did that seriously just happen?"

I seriously recommend this book to anyone who likes magic. It's a straight up adventure book with a touch of hot (non-shirtless) shifter romance. One of the character's even remarks on how the hot shifter keeps his clothes on. LOL

Nothing terribly graphic happens as far as their relationship goes so it comes off as nice and sweet. I'm actually pleased at the hint of romance and that it didn't degrade into extremely graphic sex.
