Fans of Patricia Briggs or Jim Butcher will want to check out this inventive new voice (Monsters and Critics)
Gritty setting, compelling, fully-realized characters, and a frightening system of magic-with-a-price that left me awed. Devon Monk's writing is addictive, and the only cure is more, more, more . . . (Rachel Vincent)
Loved it. Fiendishly original and a stay-up-all-night read (Patricia Briggs)

Devon Monk does it again. She has created another read-through book about the world of Allie Beckstrom. That woman simply has the gift. I do not often get to read two novels in a row where the author so clearly has the ability to bring me into the story. Lucky is what I am.
In this final novel of the Allie Beckstrom series Monk gives us a conclusion that makes sense and draws any loose threads together that might be out there. Perhaps it is Beckstrom's willingness to pay the price for her actions that makes her so appealing. Or it could be her side-kicks Zay and Shame (and in later books Terric). These there are a wonderful complement to Allie's character.
Leander and Isabelle are coming to Portland to close the whole magical community down. Along, she is bringing Authority from several other cities. To put it mildly, Portland is in need to a plan that might give them a chance against the Overseer. That is Allie's job, figuring something out that will keep as many as possible alive and well.
This is where Monk shows her gift. She brings out the desperation and hope in novel in a manner that brings me as a reader into the stream of her words. I go willingly and joyfully into this tale of adventure wondering where the author is going to take me. As usual, I cheat by reading the last few pages early on. I know, annoying habit. For me, this is something that whets my appetite.
I hope you enjoy this final installment in the Allie Beckstrom adventure as much as I have.
Over the eight previous books we have seen Allie use magic and get used by magic, make friends and loose friends and fight to save Portland and keep magic pure. Allie has had ups and downs and there have been many questions raised that I hoped...no, that I needed answered in this last book. We have been introduced to great characters such as Shame *swoon*, Terric and Allie's lover Zayvion and let us not forget her father Daniel Beckstrom.
It is so difficult to review this book without giving away any spoilers, however I will say that fans will not be disappointed. If you haven't read this series I urge you to do so. This is a must read for those of you who like Urban Fantasy but you do need to read the books in order. Ms Monk than you so much for bringing these books into the world and I have just found out that there will be a spin off series with Shame and Terric *woohoo* I cannot wait. Allie Beckstrom it has been a blast and I am going to give Magic For A Price 5 stars.
Would definately recomend it to supernatural lovers
I still find Allie one of the least likeable of the characters, but Terric and Shame are great. It was nice to find out more about Allie's dad too.
