Intriguing supernatural battle against evil forces. 6 Jan 2014
By MSEreads - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This is an intriguing supernatural battle against evil forces. Rating 4.25.

Natalie is a strong minded, independent young woman of 18. It is clear from the beginning of this story that she has special skills that have helped her fight demons and save the young man that she fell in love with, Jonathan, Lord Denbury. Jonathan’s soul had been imprisoned in a painting and his body possessed by a demon summoned by the Master’s Society. A prior book covers how Natalie discovered Jonathan’s prison and helped to free him.

Natalie is aided by her father’s friend, a widow, Evelyn Northe, who Natalie views as a step mother. Natalie’s own mother died in a carriage accident but pushed Natalie to safety. Her mother now is present for her in times of great need as a guardian angel. Evelyn is a clairvoyant so she can accept Natalie’s and Jonathan’s skills and help them in the fight against the Master’s Society. Especially since the local law enforcement of 1880 don’t believe the supernatural, spiritual warfare goings on and resent having women poking into their investigation.

The evil Master’s Society is conducting terrible experiments to trap souls, reanimate bodies and using a powder to infect normal citizens with madness and violence. One group that has suffered from an unwitting attack during a party is a group of artistic types who have gathered together to support each other. Their charismatic leader is Nathaniel Veil who is famous for his shows on Gothic themes, including exploration of the paranormal. Ms. Lavinia Kent was the hostess of the party and she seeks help from Evelyn.

The story is set in Manhattan but takes the battle across the sea to Jonathan’s home outside of London, England. The four young people prepare to face several of the leader’s of the Master’s Society, including the mad, power hungry man who imprisoned Jonathan. Although they think they have a good plan, they do not fully realize the extent of danger they face.

There is good emotion and action in this story. The plot moves forward well while the young romance and other relationships are woven in as important elements. I enjoyed the spiritual foundation that supported the battle against the evil society and liked that it was a needed factor to fight the demons.

There was one minor point of view jump but most readers would probably not notice that technical error which caused an awkward sentence but didn’t disrupt the storyline. Other than that minor item I enjoyed the clean descriptions and fast paced movement of the book.

I had not read the prior books but there was enough background given to make this book understandable although I wished I had read the stories in proper sequence. This story has a proper ending although it appeared to me that there might be a lead in to another story.Although designated a YA read, and containing some YA angst, this is interesting for more 'mature' readers too who enjoy paranormal battles.

Another hauntingly beautiful book by Leanna Renee Hieber 25 Dec 2013
By angie - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have read many of Hiebers books and I find them all very good. They capture your imagination. The writing is lyrical and beautiful, you can feel the supernatural world of her books coming alive in your head as you read. While this series is slated to young adult readers (as a reader well over that age group) I found the book still held my attention and was a perfect "quick" read. I would and do recommend any of her books. Enjoy.

A grand finale for the Magic Most Foul trilogy 4 Dec 2013
By L. Haddock - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
"The Double Life of Incorporate Things" is the perfect finale to Hieber's supernatural Gothic romance trilogy. Having heightened the suspense, Hieber expertly guides the reader through Natalie and Jonathon's thrilling confrontation with the evil Majesties. Creepy, touching, and horrifying moments make the book a genuine page turner.

Great ending to the trilogy 2 Jan 2014
By Tabitha @ Bows & Bullets Reviews - Published on
Format: Paperback
In this final installment of the Magic Most Foul series, we see Natalie and Jonathan battle their foes one last time. The couple is determined to end the society responsible for the dangers drug labeled "The Cure" which claims to cure the ailment of Melancholy and working on resurrection of long dead spirits. Not to mention the raising of murderous demons. But in order to shut them down, Jonathan must once again play the role of the demon that once wore his face, which makes everything indefinitely harder because he hates the role and Natalie can see he plays it a bit too well. Is there still a bit of the demon left in him? Will good defeat evil, or will evil prevail?

Natalie has lost a bit of her confidence in this novel. Though her and Lord Denbury are still completely in love, there is friction in the relationship that causes Natalie much stress. Is it possible she could lose the man she fought so hard to free? They work it out in the end, but they struggle for a while. Natalie has to really take others into account when making decisions here, more so than before. She is quickly realizing that her every decision affects everyone around her. She's still haunted by nightmares, but those nightmares feed her clues that will *hopefully* help her band of misfits bring down the society. What really made me continue to sympathize with was her constant concern over Maggie. Even though Maggie made some bad decisions, Natalie has a great need to make things right between them.

Then there is Lord Denbury, who is just as charming as ever, if a bit more controlling. He's trying to state his independence, which is admirable, but it constantly requires him to leave Natalie out, which doesn't please anyone involved, reader included. Jonathan doing what he thinks is right is swoon-worthy, but the overbearing need to protect Natalie that was absent before rears it's ugly head here. He gets over it by the end, but it's more than a little irritating.

Nathaniel Veil, my other favorite character, gets a bit more facetime here. Can I just say I love him? Here is a man that follows his own path and doesn't care what anyone has to say about it. He's so compassionate about helping those who are similarly afflicted with melancholy. I loved watching him try to protect his group of friends.

This novel is the perfect ending to the trilogy, except the one character death. The writing and story-telling is just as beautiful as it has been in previous novels. Trying to puzzle out what the society was up to and their master-plan had be on the edge of my seat. I can't wait to get my hands on the spin-off series that's up next!
Good... If a little slow at times. 24 Jun 2014

I didn't dive into this book as much as the first one. The second and third books seemed, to me at least, to lose steam. Sad.. But I had to finish to see what happened with the characters.

There were plot lines that I was glad to see resolved. :)
