Branded as an abomination, Dragon Born mage Alex Dering has spent her whole life hiding what she is—a secret her father died to protect. Eight years after his death, Alex finally gets the chance to track down the mage responsible.

But her vengeance is put on hold when she gets a lead in London on the Blood Orb, a magical artifact with the power to control vampires. Retrieving the orb from the hate group that holds it won’t be easy; thwarting their plan to exterminate every supernatural in the world will be even harder.

To make matters worse, a mysterious killer is stalking Alex’s every move, determined to end her life. To survive this, it will take all her magic, a lot of help from a dangerous ally, and a really big sword.

 

Blood Magic is book two in the Dragon Born Alexandria series by Ella Summers. 

This was an improvement from book one. It’s a fast-paced read with a lot of action. We get an assassin sent to kill Alex, hybrids going missing, and Alex is starting to have weird dreams. 

Now that Alexandria has Slayer on her side, her and her sister, can look into their fathers death and who killed him. That trail had gone cold, but having an assassin around who knows the underworld and where to look, well they can start to get answers. 

The search continues for the Blood Orb, stopping the hate group, and stopping an all out war between humans and supernaturals. Which is what will happen if the Convictionites have their way. 

If you aren’t read the Dragon Born World series books in order then you will be spoiled on what happened in Magic Nights Dragon Born Serafina book three; because we have Serafina and Naomi explaining about the Big Evils in play and how the Convicitionites fit into this. Many of my questions where answered about the Evils, how things are connected, and the Blood Orbs.

We also learn that mix breed aka hybrids, adults and children are being kidnapped all over the world. To what end? We don’t know, but this brings Naomi into the picture and I love her. She’s a lot of fun. Her and Serafina worked together and now she’s here to help Alexandria. 

Slayer aka Logan and Alexandria still have that scorching sexual tension. These two get together fast and stay together. The romance isn’t drawn out. It’s more insta. 

Summers does a good job describing things and being descriptive of the different kinds and flavors of magic. I like this aspect of the Dragon Born. It’s an interesting magic skill. 

Magic Born was a lot of fun with it’s fast-paced action and adventure.
