Magic and Loss - Nancy A. Collins

Located on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, Golgotham has been the city’s supernatural district for centuries. Populated by creatures from myth and legend, the neighborhood’s most prominent citizens are the Kymera, a race of witches who maintain an uneasy truce with the city’s humans...

It has been several months since Tate Eresby developed her new magical ability to bring whatever she creates to life, but she is still learning to control her power. Struggling to make a living as an artist, she and Hexe can barely make ends meet, but they are happy.

That is until Golgotham’s criminal overlord Boss Marz is released from prison, bent on revenge against the couple responsible for putting him there. Hexe’s right hand is destroyed, leaving him unable to conjure his benign magic. Attempts to repair the hand only succeed in plunging Hexe into a darkness that can’t be lifted—even by news that Tate is carrying his child.

My thoughts:
I do like Golgotham, such a cool world, it's part of the city of New York. They are a little world of their own, magic, beings, and all things nice and horrid.

Tate and Hexe have settled down quite nicely. But things are never that easy are they? Family problems, the whole she is human, he is Kymerian thing. But I like them and they are so cute together, I like that they just went for it. Especially since he is the heir to the throne and everything.

But a bad guy is coming for them and the book took a more sinister tone, and I felt so sad for them at times. It was tough.

The ending wraps it together a bit too nicely. I had to ask the author and she does want to write more. But this one needed an ending if more did not come. And I did like that cos yay it all worked out. But she still left room for so much more for them to come, as Tate was preggers and all. Ohh drama. But if more is not to come then this was a nice trilogy, and if more is to come then yes more will be awesome.

Conclusion:
A cool urban fantasy series that I have enjoyed :)

  1. Hopefully "more" comes to fruition! I like that everything is wrapped up nicely with room for more though, I much prefer that to a cliffhanger:)
