Review Copy: From author in exchange of honest review
From the internationally bestselling authors who brought you the Krinar Chronicles comes a captivating tale of intrigue, love, and danger in a world where sorcery is entwined with science . . . 

Once a respected member of the Sorcerer Council and now an outcast, Blaise has spent the last year of his life working on a special magical object. The goal is to allow anyone to do magic, not just the sorcerer elite. The outcome of his quest is unlike anything he could’ve ever imagined – because, instead of an object, he creates Her.

She is Gala, and she is anything but inanimate. Born in the Spell Realm, she is beautiful and highly intelligent – and nobody knows what she’s capable of. She will do anything to experience the world . . . even leave the man she is beginning to fall for.

Augusta, a powerful sorceress and Blaise’s former fiancĂ©e, sees Blaise’s deed as the ultimate hubris and Gala as an abomination that must be destroyed. In her quest to save the human race, Augusta will forge new alliances, becoming tangled in a web of intrigue that stretches further than any of them suspect. She may even have to turn to her new lover Barson, a ruthless warrior who might have an agenda of his own . . .

I love all things magic and how authors create their ways of using it and such. This one so different I loved that about it.

We have multiple points of view in this book, and when I say multiple, I mean 4. Normally one may scream OMG WHY?! But rest assured it makes perfect sense and in a way, makes it a smoother read. It also gives the idea that everyone thinks they're doing the right thing scenario.

This is one magical story, that has you more curious about what will happen next. The basics of their origin and use of magic is slightly complex, but not hard to follow.

I loved Gala. Can someone give me her ability to read as fast as she can? If I could read a book in 3 minutes, then imagine all I could read. *thinks of possibilities* Ouch that makes my head hurt thinking about that. The way Gala does math is weird, but it makes sense. Reminded me of the time my sister tried to explain how she got the 24 hour clock.

So to prevent a rant, just know that if you are a mundane who loves magic, then add this ASAP.
