Ancient Magic by Linsey Hall - 5 Star Review

When I was approached via email to read Ancient Magic, I was so stinking excited! I have read for Linsey before, on her Mythean Arcana series, which is fantastic and you can read my review of that series here.
Linsey has an ability for the writing in her books that really draws you in, makes you feel that you are actually a part of the adventure unfolding around you. Please read on to learn about her new amazing series, The Dragon's Gift: The Huntress and book one Ancient Magic. You will NOT be disappointed.

Title: Ancient Magic
Series: Dragon's Gift:The Huntress
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Written By: Linsey Hall
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 the dragon’s soul. Being born with the dragon’s covetousness should be a sweet gig—she has the power to find and steal any type of 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 and killing demons are the only ways to pay the bills. It’s a dangerous job when you can barely use your magic, but that’s one of the things she likes about it.

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 doesn’t have a choice. The scroll will reveal what she is. And if anyone finds out, she’s dead.
*I was provided a complementary copy in exchange for an honest review. 

This is an epic story of treasure hunting, a slow growing romance, true sisterhood, and stolen magic!
I loved every word from chapter one until the end, I'm left over here begging for more!!!
Cass is a FireSoul, meaning she has the ability to kill and steal another's powers- she's a good girl though. Having escaped a terrible evil she and her "sisters" have made a life for themselves that doesn't include killing people.
Enter Aidan, hot and rich and just perfect for Cass.
While looking for the one thing that endangers them all... We see that Cass is in danger of loosing more than just her heart!
I laughed so many times through this one, the writing is so wonderful I felt familiar with the story right from the beginning.
I can't wait to read book two!!!

Linsey Hall is the author of the Mythean Arcana, an adventurous paranormal romance series set in Scotland and other exotic locales. Before becoming a romance novelist, Linsey was a nautical archaeologist who studied shipwrecks from Hawaii and the Yukon to the UK and the Mediterranean. She credits the historical romances of the 70's, 80's, and 90's with her love of history and her decision to become an archaeologist. After a decade of tromping around the globe in search of old bits of stuff, she settled down and started penning her own romance novels. Her books draw upon her love of history, travel, and the paranormal elements that she can't help but include. Several of her books may or may not feature her cats.
