Présentation de l'éditeur

The latest Broken Magic novel from national bestselling author Devon Monk.

Marked by Life and Death magic, Shame Flynn and Terric Conley are “breakers”—those who can use magic to its full extent. Most of the time, they can barely stand each other, but they know they have to work together to defeat a common enemy—rogue magic user Eli Collins.

Backed by the government, Eli is trying to use magic as a weapon by carving spells into the flesh of innocents and turning them into brainless walking bombs. To stop him, Shame and Terric will need to call on their magic, even as it threatens to consume them—because the price they must pay to wield Life and Death could change the very fate of the world...and magic itself.

From the Paperback edition.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 I'm going to miss these characters 12 juillet 2014
Par J Doe - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle
This was a terrific follow-up to Hell Bent, and I’m going to miss these characters now that the series is over. That said, this is a dark book. There is a lot of action, and Shame and Terric suffer a lot for their magic and in pursuit of the villain who wants to kill other Soul Complements. I wondered for much of the book how it was going to end: would they be able to carry on with their lives in a somewhat normal manner or would they forever be burdened with their magic. I’m not saying which way it turned out because that would be spoiler-ish. But I will say the ending was satisfying, and it left open the possibility of future books or stories.

Minor spoiler now…..As any long-time reader of the previous series that this was a spin-off from knows, Shame has been uncomfortable with the closeness he shares with Terric because of the Soul Complement bond. That issue is dealt with in this book, and by the end, Shame is no longer so much at odds with Terric.

I highly recommend this book, although readers really need to have read Hell Bent to understand what’s happening here.

I know all good things must come to an end. I have to say, I am sad to leave this world behind, but I am utterly and completely satisfied by this ending. What a great conclusion! Devon Monk has done such a wonderful job crafting these characters. They are so distinct and nuanced; I really feel like I know them now. I love them. And for them, this is one of those stories where it always darkest before the dawn.

These books have always been dark, but this may be the toughest one yet. Shame and Terric have to endure new heights of pain here. It's tough to watch. But it's not gratuitous. Everything happens for a reason, and it's worth it in the end.

As I have said many time in reviewing this series, these books are not standalones. What makes them so good is the built emotional investment in the characters and the stories that advance over arcs from book to book. This is a direct continuation from Hell Bent. If you're a new reader, at the very least start there, but I think you would be best served starting with Magic to the Bone. Be warned, spoilers for previous books are ahead.

So as the story begins, Shame is on a mission to kill Eli Collins. The feeling is mutual. Collins killed the woman Shame loved; Shame retaliated by killing Collins' soul compliment. Now, neither will be satisfied by anything less than the total annihilation of the other. In a way, they both get what they want, because the war between them is bloody --and full of misery, torture, and death. One of the many things that is cool about these books, though, is that life and death aren't the absolutes they are in the real world. I love how Monk manipulates this here. Sometimes, it's hard to know which end is up, but I love that. The plot is full of surprises. It's action packed, and still manages to be emotional at times. I cried more than once.

Shame is so different from any hero I have read. He is a killer. Scratch that. He is Death. His magic eats people. He destroys them, even as he fights it with his entire being. It's impossible not to sympathize with him. But if you weren't inside his head, it could be so easy to see him as a monster. I guess, in some ways, that is exactly what he is, but that isn't all that he is. There is so much more to Shame. I loved being in his head.

Double bonus points: we also spend a few chapters in Terric's head, which I loved too. Perhaps, the best perspective of all came in the moments these two saw each other the clearest.

The main characters carry this book, no doubt, but the secondary characters really make it so much richer. Like Eleanor, who has been through so much; she has a strong supporting role here and I loved her for all the choices she makes. Allie and Zay, of course, were hits for me, because I love seeing their happy ending. I loved getting cameos from dead characters I never expected to see again. Dash was super awesome. And Collins was the perfect mad scientist. He is perfectly calibrated as 10 shades of crazy with a side order of sadism.

With it all over, I feel at peace with everything. I feel like it was worth it to read all 11 books in this world. And I know I will not hesitate to read from this author again. Would definitely recommend investing in this series.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A Fitting End! 22 août 2014
Par Jessica S. - Publié sur
Devon Monk's Stone Cold concludes the Broken Magic duology and it was just as entertaining as the first one. Although I gotta admit I was pretty sad for most of it. I just really felt for Shame as his life just continued to down spiral after everything he went through the first go around, but he's a fighter and he won't go down easy!

Shame's plan is to basically find Eli and kill him. Eli has messed with his life enough. He also needs to rescue Davy who has gone missing and while he's at it, kill Krogher too since he's basically the one running things and Eli is merely a pawn--a pawn with his own evil plan. So basically, just another week in the life of Shamus Flynn.

This was really one intense read. Shame was really down spiraling and losing control of his Death magic abilities, it was starting to rule him and not the other way around. Things with Terric are tense as always. But then when Terric gets into danger, Shame takes the blame and is ready to raise hell to save his friend and Soul Complement.

There was no romance in this one this time, but that's to be expected considering what happened in the first one. But it was still kind of sad to read through this one, just because it seemed like everything that could go wrong for Shame, did.

But Shame still has his same attitude which is always entertaining! There were several shocking developments in this one that I wasn't expecting considering this is the end. I was once again happy to see Allie and Zay and a few of the Hounds as well.

The ending itself was the nice sort. One where you can smile at seeing a change on the horizon for the city of Portland or really the world at large. It was definitely a worthwhile read, one all Allie Beckstrom fans should read at on point!

Overall Rating 4/5 stars

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent continuation of this Allie Beckstrom spin-off 5 mai 2014
Par Karissa Eckert - Publié sur
This is the second (and final) book in the Broken Magic series by Monk. This has been a good spin-off series from the Allie Beckstrom series. It features Terric and Shame. I enjoyed it a lot. I would recommend reading the Allie Beckstrom series before this one because there is a lot that happens in this book that ties back into that original series.

Shame and Terric are still trying to track down Eli, the magic user that has caused so much trouble throughout the series. Eli now is being backed by the government in another evil endeavor. The government wants to use Soul Complements as weapons by using them to make innocent people walking magical bombs. Shame and Terric will have to do their best to tame their Death and Life magic and stop Eli before he kills off even more Soul Complements.

A lot happens in this book. Shame and Terric are really run through the ringer here...they just go through so much pain and suffering throughout the book.

Most of the book is told from Shame’s POV, but some of it is also from Terric’s. Shame does a lot of angsting about how he is evil...blah, blah, blah. But if you have read about Shame in other books you know that that is just how his character is. We do get to learn more about Shame’s past and get to understand him a lot better as a character in this book. We learn what drives Shame and get to see past his obnoxious/selfish-seeming exterior.

Terric doesn't feature quite as much, but we do get more insight into Life magic and how too much Life isn’t necessarily a good thing. Both Shame and Terric are scary powerful magic users and the magic uses them more than they use the magic.

The plot is very well done and not only wraps up this duology nicely, but also wraps up a lot of loose ends from the Allie Beckstrom series nicely. Allie and Zayvion are in the story some, as well as all of the other characters we got to know and love in the Allie Beckstrom series.

Overall I enjoyed this book and thought it wrapped up the Broken Magic duology nicely. I would definitely recommend reading the Allie Beckstrom series before this one, there is just a lot that ties in with the Allie Beckstrom books that you will miss out on if you haven’t read those. I thought everything ended at an excellent place and enjoyed watching Shame and Terric wrestle with their powerful magic. I would definitely recommend this series to urban fantasy fans, especially those who were fans of the Allie Beckstrom series.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Perfect Finale 3 juillet 2014

As always, I love Devon Monk's writing, but this book was a special treasure because it wrapped up the adventures started in the amazing Allie Beckstom series. It was great to get a final visit with old friends, as well as finding out what happened to Shame and Terric. I'm only sorry to say goodbye to this fabulous world.

Monk did it again. I'd give it six stars if I could!
