    2. YES YES YES Read this one How I love it when I find a book that I enjoyed enough to rant about this is one of those Its a sort of dark urban fantasy set in a grim future after the mage wars between plainblood humans and those humans who are tainted with magic mages Wonderful world building I truly hope for to come in this world, as I would welcome the chance to re visit.There are so many things to love about this book Magic and demons and angst and hot sex to name a few Its runs the gamut from [...]

    3.

    4. 3.5 stars rounded up for being free This was a cool little alternative earth book about an America where magic exists and mages are considered too dangerous to roam around freely, so they get rounded up and chucked in ghettoes Enforcing all of this are the Templars, an elite brand of police who deal with magic users The romance is of the enemies to lovers gay for you variety, when Collin a heterosexual Templar commander is forced into close quaters with Logan a powerful sexy mage Things I liked [...]

    5. It probably says a lot that it took me four days to read thisd I still skimmed the lonnng action sequence at the end Although the story moved on at a fast pace and the plot kept me engaged, the characters never lived up to their potential I ve read some amazing character driven romances lately, and these two MCs seemed like flat caricatures in comparison If you re looking for a light, action adventure fantasy with a dash of romance thrown in this might be the book for you.

    7. In this urban fantasy humanity is divided between plainblood, normal human beings, and tainted, a minority who possesses powers that appear magical The tainted are powerful but vulnerable to the influence of demons who may possess them to enter the human reality.Past wars have brought humanity to a situation where the tainted no longer have rights and are enclosed in areas similar to ghettos, policed by templars, plainblood specially trained to contain them.Of course plainblood are not lambs wit [...]

    8. I REALLY liked this I struggle finding paranormal uf books I like in the m m genre but this one really worked for me It s about Collin, a paranormal cop who monitors the mages in their world Collin believes they re all bad and has helped in the persecution of their race He s assigned to protect the leader of the mages, Logan, and finds out all his preconceived ideas are wrong Logan challenges his belief system and the two men end up finding friendship and then love Lot s of magic, demons, and fi [...]

    9. Spiretown is not a happy place It s where mages are relocated against their will a place where they can be forgotten It s a grim corner of the world, and a romance set here isn t going to be all butterflies and sunlit fields The characters are real, imperfect people who are forced together They re smart and they re sexy and they make the most of the situation they re in They find each other and they start to build something together Spiretown isn t fluffy It s challenging and rewarding It s at t [...]

    10. Dark but delicious My daughter reads manga and watches anime and the most tragic MCs always seem to have white hair and something wrong different with their eyes I found it interesting that Logan fit this mold and often had flashes to those mediums reading this novel I like both characters and all their flaws There is lots of violence but also tender moments I loved the world building and vivid descriptions.There is a head hopping POV switiching problem that threw me from time to time, but other [...]

    11. The rating is entirely me There are plenty of people awarding this book with 5 stars, so it must be me.My major pet peeves I do not like horror and I do not like books that rotate solely around one or two characters, unless those characters are marooned or isolated from the rest of the world and society against their will nods to Robinson Crusoe and The Broker.This is a character driven book, and though MCs are pretty entertaining by themselves, they live in a bubble There are some people moment [...]

    12. This was FANTASTIC Totally not what I was expecting I could not stop turning the pages because I wanted to know what would happen next My god, this was good A different kind of tale, indeed I do hope that there is thought on a sequel for this story Wow This one goes on My Favorites list Loved the story.

    13. I really enjoyed this book The only thing that threw it off was the POV flip flopping in the middle of a scene If there is going to be different POVs in a book I prefer them to be separated by scenes and or chapters so that there is no confusion whose head you are in.

    14. Lovely, gritty alternative Earth setting, with magic users oppressed, segregated and heavily policed Great characters loved Logan , well paced action and a very satisfying read Hope there are some sequels in the works, or other books in this same world.

    15. Lia Black paints a unique world and characters with bold strokes of her pen Overall a really good story This is an enemies to lovers story A dark urban fantasy of mages demons prisoners in Spiretown vs humankind s jailers the Templars Logan and Collin It s a story about corruptions, prejudice, and survival But I really did not like where the story ended For me it was just too disturbing, and not enough resolution.

    16. The best book ever This was one of the most amazing books I have ever read Its hero s are flawed and beautiful, the story is an adventure a horror and a romance all at once I wish it could go on

    17. At 36% This book does a good job of showing segregation, discrimination against anyone different.I expected the relationship between Templar Collin and Mage Dreamer Logan to be one of equal But at this point, Logan is weepy and talks about being a sub D s is something I didn t expect in a book themed Urban fantasy At 100% I still cannot understand how a child who has undergone so much pain and been sexually mollested can be open to D s.But other than that, the last 50% of the book was fast paced [...]

    18. I loved the world building It was enough and at the same time not too much I loved how Collin slowly grew up to accept not everything is black or white I loved Logan and how he was both vulnerable and strong The way he talked about the abuse made me want to hug him.So why not 5 stars The head hopping It wasn t so bad that I wanted to DNF the book, but it s a pet peeve of mine I also would have liked to see how things went after the end What happened with Collin s job What about Tomas I hope ther [...]

    19. For some reason, this one fell a bit flat for me but heck if I can explain why The D s aspect threw me off as I didn t realize this story had that when I bought it I have to renember to use the full website when looking for new books to read instead of the app That might be why it fell flat because I don t care for that much so I skimmed through those parts I gave it extra stars for creativity, though.

    20. Logan and Collin Loved some partsemistry, urban fantasy feel, interesting world, didn t want to put this down Not so fond of the rapid, unexpected POV changes and the extended length of the action scene late in the story The plot felt superficial in places, and depth in these areas would have been ideal Rounding up to 4 stars because the foundation is well done, and I enjoyed the story immensely Looking forward to books from this author.B , 3

    21. More like 3.5 stars, but I rounded up Enjoyable even if the plot could seem a little all over the place The characters were really interesting, as was the world building It read as rather open ended, so I do wonder if there is the possibility of a sequel in the future As I feel some opportunities were missed, I believe there is room for expansion, but it still made for a good story as a standalone work.

    22. I didn t expect to like this as much as I did The plot line is fantastic and the characters are realistic and interesting The only problem I found was that correct punctuation was almost never used and there were a few minor spelling mistakes eg, thorough instead of through close to the end , but honestly, the story was so awesome that it didn t bring my 5 star rating down one bit

    23. Set in a dystopian world filled with hatred and bigotry, the characterization of demon possessed mages and the process they go through as well as their use of magic is fascinating Well worth the read.

    24. Entertaining urban fantasy romance Engaging characters, interesting story, neat world, nice romance I expected from this book, for some forgotten reason, but it was still very likeable and held my attention.

    25. dnf 16% Got tired of the casual misogyny of women only portrayed as sluts, whores, dog killers and cheaters This book has a really judgmental religious tone that is really putting me off as well, not to mention the POV switching in the middle of a scene.

    26. I enjoyed the start of this taleDon t know why but it s time signature was unexpected and funThe mm element was too intrusive for me, but worked.The story does require a suspension of belief slightly than I am comfortable with
