Mattie Carver’s engagement party should have marked the start of her own personal fairy tale. But when her fiancé, Ben, is violently abducted the next morning, her desperate quest to find him rips her away from small-town life and reveals a shattering truth: magic is real—and Ben is hooked. It’s not the stuff of storybooks. It’s wildly addictive, capable of producing everything from hellish anguish to sensual ecstasy almost beyond human endurance.
Determined to find out who took Ben and why, Mattie immerses herself in a shadowy underworld and comes face-to-face with the darkly alluring Asa Ward, a rogue magic dealer, infamous hustler…and her missing fiancé’s estranged brother. Asa has the power to sense magic, and he realizes Mattie is a reliquary, someone with the rare ability to carry magic within her own body, undetected. Asa agrees to help find Ben on one condition: Mattie must use her uncommon talent to assist his smuggling operations. Now, from magic-laced Vegas casinos to the netherworld clubs of Bangkok, Mattie is on a rescue mission. With Asa by her side, she’ll face not only the supernatural forces arrayed against her but the all-too-human temptation that she fears she can’t resist.
Reliquary is an amazing story of magic, love, and betrayal.
Mattie had the average life, a job and a fiancée. Then Ben, her fiancée, suddenly disappears leaving Mattie searching for answers…answers she never imagined existed…Magic.
Mattie is a very rare and extremely powerful magical beginning. She can capture and store magic without anyone even knowing she has it. This makes Mattie a target to the criminal elements that rule the magic world.
The seduction of the magical world comes at a great cost; can Mattie find what she needs before it takes her away?
Sarah Fine weaves her own magic in this, a new series, Reliquary. I was utterly and completely enthralled by this fantastic tale.
I left Reliquary with a total book hangover, anxiously awaiting the continuation of this tale.
I received this ARC copy of Reliquary from 47North in exchange for a honest review. This book is set for publication June 14, 2016.
