Publisher's Summary

Zoë Merrick lived an ordinary life until late one night, she was brutally attacked and left for dead. She survived, saved by a stranger who witnessed her undergo a physical transformation. That's not the only thing that's different. Zoë is unable to control an unexplainable energy coursing through her body.
Justus De Gradi is a man who can teach her that control. He's handsome, arrogant, and not entirely human. He reveals that she is a Mage - an immortal made of light, not magic. She must now make a choice: Rebuild her life in the human world with the man who saved her, or live with Justus and learn how to use her extraordinary gifts. Justus has sworn an oath to protect her life, but can he guard her from the one man who has a right to claim it?

Sparkling Paranormal!

I love the world the author has created in this series. Filled with shifters and mages and vampires, she nevertheless imbues them with a sense of purpose and reality. My favorite thing is that we follow the main character, Silver, and her cohorts through each book. I enjoy series of this kind, where the characters are allowed to grow and evolve over time -- and these are great characters!

A young woman is walking home alone across a field late at night, when she is viciously attacked and killed by a man with surprising strength, and strange glowing eyes. But that's only the beginning of her journey and she is reborn to a world she never knew existed.

Along the way, she figures out who and what she has become, even as she struggles to hang on to her humanity.

There is plenty of action, and a heroine who is headstrong and determined to get the bad guys -- even as she learns to trust and rely on those around her -- and they learn to trust her. There aren't a lot of TSTL moments, but there are a few as she negotiates her way, but they make sense in the context of the plot.

The love interest is original, sexy and mesmerizing.

I'm delighted to have found this series and love the trajectory it appears to be on.

The narration is top notch as well. Nichole Poole (AKA: Justine O'Keefe) can't pronounce words like valuable, but I find it charming and her performance here is even better than on the Sinners on Tour series!

Loved it!

5 Sterling Stars

I have never made it a secret that I love Dannika Darks writing. Her Seven Series is and probably will be one of my most favorite shifter books ever.

Now the Mageri Series is just as well written, she sucks you in and doesn’t let you go. You become invested in Zoe and everything she is put through. To become what she is. She has strength like no other character I have read. She only shows her hurt when she literally can’t hide it any longer and even then she is fighting to contain it.

Zoe need to rely on others to get her through and it’s not something she takes lightly, she isn’t used to it. But she really has no choice, enter Adam. Her friendship with him is different where he wants more but I think he is afraid to want more. Or at least that’s my thought.

Then we have Justus, I have a slight crush on his confidence. I am digging him, he has this aura about him where the ladies want him and its funny no effect on Zoe what so ever. We also meet Simon and he is probably a favorite of mine just because he is kind of wacky and zany.

But what I love best about all these men is that they would all die to protect Zoe and she doesn’t want them to. She wants to stand on her own. But they have a need to protect.

I don’t want to give too much away because it’s truly a book you need to read and experience for yourself. I got this baby in audio and it’s even better then when I read it with my “eyes”. The narrator is amazing I can’t even, she makes you feel like you’re part of the story and isn’t that what audiobooks are all about.

So I will leave my review with this. If you haven’t read a Dannika Dark book what are you waiting for!
