Off the grid and on the run since she was a teen, Sara Wilde has made a name for herself as an artifact hunter with an edge—finding the most magical treasures on the planet with the flip of a Tarot card.

But when she’s hired to steal a powerful fertility idol on the last night of Carnival, Sara discovers her rough-and-tumble skills are no match for the new, mysterious buyer she’s attracted. Rich, demanding, and sexy as sin, this Magician promises to be nothing but trouble. Yet, for what he’s willing to shell out for her services, Sara can afford the risk.

Or so she thinks.

As the danger—and the payoffs—mount, the power of Tarot leads Sara from the rollicking party of Rio de Janeiro to the grand historical cemeteries of Savannah, then on to the ostentatious museum halls of New York City. Meanwhile, the relentless Magician weaves an ever more seductive spell, hinting at a world she’s barely glimpsed.

To keep from getting burned by passion, power, or betrayal, Sara’s going to need some Wilde Magic.

Wilde Magic is book one in the Immortal Vegas series by Jenn Stark.

The first 25% of the opening adventure of Wilde Magic was previously published as a novella One Wilde Night. The story has been changed and expanded leading Sara into a new adventure.

Sara Wilde is an artifact hunter with an edge from her Tarot Cards in finding the most magical treasures on the planet. She also has a big heart and unusual powers.

Sara ends up catching the attention of a powerful member of the Arcana Council, who hires her for a job. On her adventure to find the artifact she learns that there are powerful dangerous people wanting to change the world and with the help of Armaes Bertrand aka the Magician they just might stop and save the balance of magic.

Wilde Magic was a good start. I read One Wilde Night, so I found the begging a bit disappointed in that it was a repeat. After we got past that part things got better. I’m not totally sold yet on the series, but I did enjoy it well enough to finish. It was full of adventure and non-stop action. Not sure on how I feel about the Magician as a romantic aspect for Sarah. The author does a good job connecting the reader into Sarah’s thoughts. The story is a glimpse into our leads global travels and what she stands for.

  1. Thanks for sharing. It’s good to know about One Wilde Night. I think I probably have both.

    • Ya, I wish I had known. Oh well. Thanks for stopping by.
