For review:

Mystic City – Theo Lawrence

Manhattan lies underwater.

The corrupt rulers of this new city live high above the flood and survive by channelling the energy of the mystics – a magic-wielding underclass who are forced to live amongst the poor in the squalor of the Depths.

High in the Aeries, Aria Rose’s fiancé has promised that their marriage will unite two of the city’s ruling dynasties. But the gap’s in Aria’s memory tell her that this romance isn’t all it seems – and the appearance of Hunter, a gorgeous rebel mystic and passionate revolutionary, is about to change the course of her life forever.

I’m really loving the sound of this one. Thanks Random House!

A Reckless Magick – Stephanie Burgis

Kat’s back for her third adventure, and as usual, social disaster is following in her wake...

When the Stephenson family travel to a grand country house in Devon for her sister Angeline’s wedding, Kat is stalked by a dangeorus magical enemy and finds everything she thought she knew about her late mother called into question.

With smugglers, sabotage, tangled romance and plenty of magical activity at work, it’s down to Kat to protect her family and her country from impending ruin.

I love this series so I can’t wait to get stuck in to this! Thanks, Templar!
