Présentation de l'éditeur

4 ½ Stars TOP PICK --RT Magazine

"Best book of the year! Best new character of the year! Best new series all year! I. Loved. This. Book. You gotta read it."

—Faith Hunter, New York Times Bestselling Author of the Jane Yellowrock series

"Diana Pharaoh Francis has crafted a winning paranormal mystery that mixes sizzling sex, magic, and a decades old search for artifacts that could change their world."

—Jeanne Stein, Bestselling Author of The Anna Strong Chronicles

"Trace of Magic caught me up fast and pulled me in tight for a fun, action-and-sass adventure full of deadly magic and dangerous romance. Diana Pharaoh Francis delivers a downright terrific read."

—Devon Monk, nationally Bestselling Author of Hell Bent

Even the most powerful tracers can't track you if the magical trace you leave behind is too old. But I can track almost anything, even dead trace. That makes me a unicorn, the Tooth Fairy, the Easter Bunny, and the Loch Ness Monster all rolled into one. In a word, I am unique. A very special snowflake. And if anyone ever finds out, I'll be dead or a slave to one of the Tyet criminal factions.

Riley Hollis has quietly traced kidnapped children and quietly tipped the cops to their whereabouts one too many times. Now she's on the radar of Detective Clay Price, a cop in the pocket of a powerful magic Tyet faction. When he blackmails her into doing a dangerous trace for him, Riley will have to break every rule that keeps her safe. Or become a Tyet pawn in a deadly, magical war.

I really like the universe. The magic and the gangs all make sense and are interesting. And I love some of the other series by this author.

What I didn't like was the sex.


Riley gets shot. Two days and one healing spell later she is sleeping with a cop she has feared and despised for years. She cannot resist his charms at all. He lies to her and misleads her and she jumps his bones as soon as he gives her a smoldering glance. Hypothermia, magic backlash, physical injury...all mean nothing as soon as they lock eyes or lips.

I just didn't buy it. It was more like a telenovela as soon as he touched her skin. I don't mind adult scenes in grownup books, but it has to make sense in the story. This came real close to derailing the narrative. I was disgusted by her lack of resolve.

This is more of a 3.5 stars than a true four. The world and most of the characters and the writing are worth a five, but the main character is a two at best.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Would have been better with less romance 15 novembre 2014
Par Shirley U Jest - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This book couldn't decide if it was a romance or an urban fantasy. The problem with it was, the love bits were injected at key moments in the story, bringing the action to a halt. It's hard to feel the heroine is in immediate danger if she takes a nice long bath or indulges in some monkey lovin' with her new man right in the middle of a crisis.

There were also some mistakes and just plain unbelievable parts. Riley first says her mother died when she was five and her father remarried "a few years later." Further in, she says she was four and her stepsister was born just a year later. As far as sheer ridiculousness, there's a part where something precious and dangerous has been recovered. The author wants us to think that the hero, a police detective, wouldn't even look into the bag to see what the stuff was for the entire 24 hours the heroine is asleep. "I waited for you," he says. Apparently, despite their immediate peril, he sat around for a day not trying to find out anything new, not even looking at the evidence, until she wakes up. Argh.

There's also some pretty overused plotlines, like, "Oh, I hate him, he's everything I fight against, but damn he's just so hot I can't help myself." There's insta-love. The hero is a strong silent gorgeous hot alpha male, natch. In the LUV scenes, there's the predictable biting, her of his lip, him of her nipple (ouch), and of course he holds her hands over her head and won't let her move while he does all the work. because that's what we all secretly want, strong independent kick-ass woman or not.

If I seem annoyed, it's because I am. This book could have been so much better if it hadn't inserted those distracting, silly, moony-eyed moments right in the middle of the action. It made it hard to believe when Riley suddenly feels urgency to get back to trying to save someone's life and avoid the dangerous people after them. I just don't think you'd stop for a smooch and ardent declaration of love in public when people are actively trying to kill you.

I gave this book there stars for the ideas and world building. Riley story was so much more interesting than those hackneyed sappy bits, and I wanted to know more about her abilities and less about how much everything hurts (she gets beat up a lot), and how much she loves the hero. There was a better sorry in there that I would have liked to read.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 such a disappointment! 31 août 2014
Par Feles31 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
This was such a huge disappointment for me. At the end of the novel I had to really think to find the reason for my overall feeling of dissatisfaction. All the right plot elements were there but somehow the execution was just . . . off. On the plus side, there were no word crimes (grammar, spelling, or otherwise) committed here that I recall which also helped to make reading this story so pleasant.

I loved the heroine's powers, the secrets, the hot hero "recruiting" the heroine to find the clues and unravel the mystery. But each plot point --- whether the secrets of her powers, their romance, or the murder mysteries --- just seemed to unfold in a rather lukewarm way and was like a fizzle instead of a bang every time. Thinking back, I remember more about the anticipation when the scene was set up . . . and nothing much about the way it played out because it was so unmemorable.
How?! Why?! Was it pacing? Descriptions? Scene setting? Character dialogue? Probably all of the above. Just one of those things where the storytelling worked for another person but not for me.

It almost makes me more upset when a story is this close to good and fails to hit the mark than when it is just plain awful.

It started out so good, then progressively got worse. I think that's why I'm particularly disappointed. Such a great idea. When they first start looking for Josh, you can't read one paragraph with out it commenting about hot Price is, and how she must resist the attraction. We get it, it doesn't have to be mentioned constantly. The witty playfulness was constant and was too over played. I like witty and playfulness both, but too much gets annoying and some scenes it not appropriate or believable. And sex right after you've been shot? Give me a break. The beginning banter between Riley and the dreamer was very immature and childish, and B movie status. Then stopping to have an elaborate discussing about your relationship in the heat of your investigation, danger, and when your on a time crunch? And suddenly you're in love?That was as far as I could get. I couldn't read any more. Maybe it gets better.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Interesting Start to New Urban Fantasy Series 29 janvier 2015
Par K. M. Martin - Publié sur Amazon.com
TRACE OF MAGIC was an entertaining new entry into the crowded urban fantasy genre. Riley Hollis is used to staying below the radar of most. She has an unusual talent that would draw attention from the wrong crowd if anyone knew about it. However, Detective Clay Price has noticed her and is forcing her to help him find a missing person. Riley especially wants to stay away from Price since he is both a member of the police force and an enforcer for the magical mafia who runs the city. But Price is also hot and she is attracted to him despite knowing this is a really, really bad idea.

When her almost brother-in-law disappears, Riley starts looking for him too. Clay offers his assistance but Riley had a lot of trouble trusting him. It turns out that Clay's case and Riley's case are part of one bigger case.

I enjoyed the magical world that was created in this story. I liked the plot. I liked Riley despite her unwillingness to trust. I liked the relationship that was growing between Clay and Riley.

Fans of urban fantasy will want to give this story a try. A sequel is coming out in April.
