Balefire.jpgHalf-angel mage Marion Garin has become Queen of the Unseelie, but she can’t hold the faerie courts without convincing everyone she’s in love with her cheating, abusive husband—the beloved King ErlKonig. Rumor says Marion’s in love with the God of Death. The unseelie are revolting. And it wouldn’t be so hard to fix if the rumors weren’t true…

Book 4 of New York Times Bestselling Author SM Reine’s Mage Craft Series.


I’ve said it before and I don’t mind saying it again, this author is on my one click list.  The world building and cast of characters she has created is astonishing.

This, the 4th installment in the series, is told from a variety of differing points of view.  I think that this intensifies the unsettling feeling that the reader has, that I had, when trying to understand the complicated threads of politics, betrayal and scheming that weave through this entire story.

I never once felt that I had a complete understanding of all the machinations going on with the various factions; that I understood the big picture.  And that isn’t a criticism, as I am sure that it is intentional.  And although this is a long book, at well over 300 kindle pages, it was a quick read.

The author has started to unfold the petals of full disclosure with this book.  Teasing with the prospect of answers from the book to come. I can’t wait.

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.

About the author

Hi everyone! My name is Sara, and I write urban fantasy and paranormal novels as SM Reine. I collect swords, cat hair, and typewriters (which I do use for writing!). It’s a good day when those three things have nothing to do with each other.

If you would like to know the instant my next book is available, you should enlist in my Army of Evil! We have a wicked cool secret handshake, but you’ll have to sign up to learn it. 😉 Check it out — Army of Evil
