together Together they can overcome all obstacles, find the boxes and deal with the demons and fae Elements of Magic is a great read Syv is my favorite She s so complex She s a force of nature, wreaking havoc Sarcastic, head strong, impetuous, clever, confident But in this book, we getglimpses into her fragile side We see her secret fears, her vulnerability It makes me love her evenI also fell in love with Col this book I wasn t sure how I felt about him before It was clear that he was fond of Syv, protective of her but he was too restrained, too closed off Getting to know him better, learn some of his past, learn how he truly feels for Syv won me over His words made me melt The Dwellers are an unusual group Dex, the hound is my favorite I love this oversized shifter His power, his fierce protectiveness, and his constant concern for Syv, his attraction to her and how much it scares him makes him so lovable Morgan is difficult He made headway with me this book but still His behavior turns me off at times Cillian is the middleman I like him but need to knowabout him His and Morgan s powers are impressive.This story just keeps getting better The suspense, the mystery, the tension It s complicated and there s much we still need to know The mystery surrounding who Syv is, what her power is, and what her connection to the boxes signifies has me obsessing I desperately want Col to unleash and I need Dex returned to safety I m intrigued by Ashton and I want to see Bastian on his knees I want to collect all of the boxes and see what Syv can do with them I want Syv and Col to give in I want Dex to get his chance and for Syv and Cillian to finish what they started I want to stop being conflicted about Morgan Obviously, I want the next book This is the second book in Syv s story She s still looking for a way to get rid of her death mark and find the Sunde boxes She and the guys keep trying to find outinformation, but there are always people i.e demons, fae stopping them The magic that Morgan and Cillian perform is really cool though.Syv is able to convince the Collector to get involved mostly because of the way he feels about her He also tells herabout his history and who he really is I wonder if she will add h This is the second book in Syv s story She s still looking for a way to get rid of her death mark and find the Sunde boxes She and the guys

get involved mostly because of the way he feels about her He also tells herabout his history and who he really is I wonder if she will add him to her harem The Collector sends her to a magic addicted fae and things just get weirder from there Weird in a good way, weird for Syv, not for us Her ex decides to show up, a magical earthquake happens, an evil alliance between the fae and demons is revealed and one of her men go missing It s non stop action for Syv, no time to even appreciate the hot guys around her.I can t wait for Book 3 to find out what happens next I received an ARC from the

the conclusion that she is spending too much time objectifying the sexy guys that she s with That s ok The descriptions of these hot gentlemen, especially when she compares them in suits to her description of their regular clothes brings on all sorts of salacious pictures in my head Reading on.There is so much that comes to light and I was gobsmacked continually as I read through this book And, I m worried I d give away spoilers which is not my style of review, so I m only telling you of my reaction to this book Each one that I read from LJ Swallow only makes meentrenched in the world she s created, and I further admire her skills as an author in describing the world she has created for her characters, and for us as readers.The five of them are, however, from different worlds and have to build a team out of necessity, so the level of trust between them needs to be cemented, otherwise there is no way they can stand together against the strength of the forces that seek to not only control or destroy them, but to destroy the world as the human s know it.The suspense continues to build until the end of the book andThe End And I couldn t believe it LJ Swallow has hit the jackpot as an author leaving readers desperate forThere needs to be a scale withthan 5 Stars, because she has nailed it again And the plot thickens Kept hitting next page, not realising I had reached
