Soul Magic by Poppy Dennison
Sequel to Body Magic
Triad: Book Three
Blood runs soul-deep. Cormac hasn’t been the same since the night the High Moon Pack was attacked. With his magic weakened, he’s consumed by a bloodlust he hasn’t felt since he first became a vampire. His need to replenish his power makes him a danger to his last remaining family member, and his hunger makes him careless. And that’s just the beginning of his troubles. Feeding from pack beta Liam Benson was supposed to slake his appetite, not leave him craving more.
Simon Osborne and Gray Townsend are trying to fight a being history says shouldn’t exist—one with all three types of magic. The pack must use all of their resources to combat the mysterious triad, even turning to the shady Council of Mages for help. While Cormac struggles to reconcile his past failures with his current desires, Simon must attempt the impossible: an alliance between mind, body, and soul.
This is the third book of the Triad series. After reading the last two books I was anticipating this book and the conclusion to the story arc for Gray and Simon. I thought that we would get more of the relationship of Cormac and Liam but this was sadly lacking. The story was geared more towards ending the story arc.
The writing was well done. I was left wondering through most of the story what would happen next. I love the characters as well. They are so vivid and interesting. I will admit I still didn’t see Liam very clearly. He was a fairly shallow character. I would have loved more development of the story between Liam and Cormac. Still the part of the story that involved concluding the story arc was fascinating to me.
I enjoyed the story even though it wasn’t what I was expecting from it. I look forward to the next book in the series and where the author will take it next since this story arc is complete.
