New from “a definite star on the rise.” (LINNEA SINCLAIR) My name is Raine Benares. Until last week I was a seeker—a finder of things lost and people missing. Now I’m psychic roommates with the Saghred, an ancient stone with cataclysmic powers. Just me, the stone, and all the souls it’s ingested over the centuries. Crowded doesn’t even begin to describe it. All I want is my life back—which means getting rid of the stone and the power it possesses. To sort things out, I head for the Isle of Mid, home to the most prestigious sorcery school, as well as the Conclave, the governing body for all magic users. It’s also home to power- grubbing mages who want me dead and goblins who see me as a thief. As if that’s not enough, Mid’s best student spellsingers are disappearing left and right, and I’m expected to find them. Lives are at stake, goblins are threatening to sue, mages are getting greedier, and the stone’s power is getting stronger by the hour. This could get ugly.

I loved the book and I'm really looking forward to reading the next book. Tam was pretty great in this one although he wasn't that big a part of it. He is still my fav love interest. Mychael still doesn't seem as real to me. And really does he have to blush like a little school kid every time she lo...
I really enjoyed this. The story was a lot more gripping than in the first book, and you got to see a lot more of Raine's character and personality come out as she interacted with people in her new temporary home on the Isle of Mid.Young magic students and spell singers are going missing, and Raine,...
Armed & Magical is the second book in the Raine Benares series, and comes a week after the events of Magic Lost, Trouble Found. Raine has traveled from her home of Mermeia; to the Isle of Mid where she is hoping the cadre of powerful mages on the Isle can help her break the binding that links her to...
Good story, great sexual tension and some ass-kicking action.The highlight for me is the sexual tension between Raine and Mychael. They've only known each other for about two weeks by the end of this book but they've got quite a spark. Raine's known Tam for two years though so I guess he has an adva...
