Levy makes a fabulous lead character, she's strong, determined and not afraid to do what needs to be done, which is just as well because life has taken a turn for the bumpy! Surrounded by a great cast her adventures are intriguing and I did not want the book to end, I'll definitely be reading the next book.
Great world building, the fantasy element in this book is great, along with the 'standard' beings like vampires and shifters there's whole new types of magic users and everything is tailored to create a unique world.
The narration was spot on, the character voices are first class and the delivery made a great book even better.
I received a free copy of this book from the author and/or narrator and/or publisher and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.

As I started Double-sided Magic I felt it was crowded. The author immediately goes into background story mode. She attempts to explain too much in the beginning. I prefer when an author either adds a prelogue to cover that stuff or just lets the details flow naturally into the story.
After the first few chapters the story has a better flow. Our main character is accused of murder and for some dumb reason she constantly returns to the scenes of the crime. She isn't the sharpest tool in the shed but the author attempts to make her come across as brave. I don't know why brave is always paired with reckless.
I didn't get to the point where I absolutely loved these characters. The lead is a basic female herione. Nothing really stands our about her. She has an annoying bestfriend and a tough boss that's almost like a father figure.
During the course of the book the main character has to put her wits up against a shifter detective and the magic counsel.
She finds that her secret is harder to kept as evidence piles against her and she constantly has to use her secret powers as a Legacy.
The narrator is new for me. I can't remember any stand out moments but she also didn't stink. So I'd say she did her job :-)
For the next book, I hope the bulk of the book evolves around the magic counsel and Legacy secrets.
