Magic is Allison Beckstrom's blessing and curse. As a Hound, she uses her gifts to track down practitioners who abuse their power and stop them from inflicting harm on unsuspecting innocents. Unfortunately, her spells have taken their toll on her, physically marking her and erasing her memories—including those of the man she supposedly loves.

But lost memories aren't the only things preying on Allie’s thoughts. Her late father, the prominent businessman—and sorcerer—Daniel Beckstrom, has somehow channeled himself into her very mind. With the help of The Authority, a secret organization of magic users, she hopes to gain better control over her own abilities—and find a way to deal with her father…

Have I mentioned that I absolutely love the covers for this series? They're awesome. Just as awesome as what's inside. :)

After reading the second book in the series last week, I couldn't leave this one sitting on my TBR pile for long. I couldn't wait to get stuck into the third. And boy, is it awesome. This series is another one of those that reminds me just why I love the UF genre so much. It's got a little of everything in it. And since I've got a total weakness for gargoyles, I loved the introduction of Stone. He's so cute. lol.

Anyway, I won't talk about the story because I posted the blurb above. Besides, if I get started, I won't stop and the post will be riddled with spoilers. :/ I am going to say that I love the amount of growth that Allie goes through in each book. I also love that although she's stubborn and very determined to do things her way, she's still open to compromise and new adventures. Like what she's embarked on with the Authority. Yikes. I know there's going to be some hard times for her there, but with Zay beside her, I think she'll survive.

Though that creepy Dad of hers still bugs me... Now I have to wait until May for the next installment. Can't wait to see the cover, too. This book was awesome. The Allie Beckstrom series is another must-read series, IMO.
