This time around the seriously undermanned Nightkeepers are trying to bring the Winikins into the end of days battle as warriors instead of helpers and Cara who is leading the Winikins seems to be key to achieving the Nightkeepers’ newest cardinal day task jesaica trying to find jedsica artifact to resurrect the First Father who will hopefully perform some miracle to bolster their numbers or their magic and give our good guys a fighting chance in the final battle.
Magic Unchained ended up being one of the best books in the series so far, there were some great things that happened in the story – some telegraphed and some complete surprises – and some great steamy stuff between Cara and Sven, plus some serious setup for the final Nightkeepers book which will have Rabbit in the lead. So I really enjoyed Magic Unchained and I can’t believe that there is only one more book to go before the series wraps up in November — just before the Mayan December end date — with Spellfire which is also supposed to also have some closure for Anna who no longer is going to have her own book.
I can’t wait see how Rabbit’s dual heritage allows him to help the Nightkeepers to save the world after watching him grow up from the messed up hotheaded teen he started out being at the start of the series. Mar 27, Michelle the Romance Witch rated it it was amazing Shelves: I was extremely afraid beginning this book that things were going to move slowly This story was fast paced, with lots of action, awe-inspiring plot twists and passion and love finally embraced.
With less than four months until iessica end-date, Nightkeepers and Winikin must overcome their differences and deal with each other as they are humanity’s last hope to make it to the next cycle. Cara works to prove that she has earned the right to jessiac her people and that everyone on the I was extremely afraid beginning this book that things were going to move slowly Cara works to prove that she has earned the right to lead her people and that everyone on the team is, if not equal, able to bring something valuable to the cause.
Sven and Cara must learn to embrace their differences-and similarities- in order to lead the Winikin in the battle for their lives. Trusting their own judgement and each others, because sometimes the best choice is to let the chips fall where they may and handle the fallout. Sven and Cara have been favorite characters of mine since book one and I’m glad to see they both finally accepted the inevitability of their relationship. I love how the characters can see what’s right in front of them but still come to the wrong conclusions until all of a sudden a light bulb turns on and they realize what they’ve been seeing all along was the answer to their problems.
The heat between the characters-once they stopped hiding- was intense and hit flash point quickly. We learn a bit more about their pasts while they cope with their present, and share their dreams for the future. I will say the glimpses i got of the other characters was interesting as well, but i’m still not sure how unchsined feel about the changes in leadership of the Nightkeepers from the previous book. I missed seeing Strike and Leah.
But i imagine in the final battle we will see a lot mzgic of all the Nightkeepers, the Winikin and the gods as well. I can’t wait to read Rabbit’s book in Nov. Those nessica chapters should be very interesting.
Apr 14, TheMadHatter rated it really liked it Shelves: I knew very early into the series that I would like the book about Sven The Coyote and Cara well because how cool a name is that: I was not disappointed and this is the highest rating I have given a book in the series.
With one book to go, I am actually starting to get excited about how it is all going to end. Up until now, my biggest gripe with this series was the extensive lore.
The book is set around the Mayan prophecy for the doomsday and is VERY heavy in Mayan lore and the names I knew very early into the series that I would like the book about Sven The Coyote and Cara well because how cool a name is that: Don’t get me wrong, this is not a bad thing.
However, the lore in the previous books was quite heavy and rather confusing. There is a balance and I think with this book, Doc Jess is finally getting closer to mastering that balance. This is easily my favourite book in the series even though the final battle scene is still rather confusing. Up until now I was reading just to say I had finished the series. After this book though i am starting to think that Doc Jess and I could become good long-term reading buddies if she can maintain this balance between lore and story.
Bring on the final book! Apr 13, Marisa rated it it was amazing Shelves: Magic Unchained had some new twists, new surprises and new resolutions. But with only one more book left in the series and the good guys sorely outnumbered the tension is mounting to a fevered pitch and each new reveal is electrifying.
Andersen is weaving a web where good versus evil is at the heart of the conflict and the climax should be explosive. Dec 29, Filipa rated it really liked it Shelves: Can’t believe I’ve got to wait until November to finish this series. It has been a hell of a ride and I don’t want it to end.
Sven and Cara are a really great couple and they finally overcame their problems. There were some hints about the next and final book which I found pretty obvious but I do hope Rabbit’s book will be overwhelming and mind-blowing. Right now I’m only wishing that Myrinne turns out to be the best person in the world because or the author does something so I can really like h Can’t believe I’ve got to wait until November to finish this series.
But, well I’ve got time to sort everything out. Jessica Andersen has been doing great until now and I’ve got to say that her series is one of my all-time favourites and I doubt she will blow everything with Spellfire. And now, I’m anxious to know how things are going to end up. Another huge success and a must-read. That says a LOT about a book!!
I loved this one. Jessica Andersen can write a book and have it all right. Great hero and heroine chemistry and man she sets you up for the last book in November. I never expected that!! Now hurry up November! Got to see what happens at the end of the world Dec 15, Shauni rated it it was amazing Shelves: She has created a fantastic story based on the Mayan Calendar. Magic Unchained is the seventh book in her Final Prophecy Series and Since this is what I like to call a climactic series, Doc Jess has her work cut out for her.
She must increase the tension and take us closer and closer to the edge making us believe both that the world is doomed and that hope is there. What can I say, Doc Jess does not disappoint! One of the things about this series, is the depth of feelings and the intensity in which it was written.
When I first picked up Nightkeepers, I liked the concept. I was intrigued, then I opened the book.
Magic Unchained (The Nightkeepers, #7) by Jessica Andersen
It was a slow start. I would read a bit then think about it, then read some more. When I finished the book, I opened my eyes and felt like I had been in a different world, it was an almost drugged feeling and every book Doc Jess has written in this series has that same andrrsen. Magic Unchained not the least of them.
While the story between Cara and Sven is wonderful and I will address that there was just so much going on. Anna receives a vision, being that she was never completely trained she has to work hard on just jesscia it. She finally realizes that the team must bring back the father. Throughout the book the Nightkeepers goal is to resurrect the First Father.
This is the main task of this book of course no way would Doc Jess allow for just one story line. The Winikin are determined to fight on their own, fight for themselves not as indentured servants to the Nightkeepers but as relevant individuals in the fight.
To this end, unchainrd games are played and Cara has to learn how to make life and death decisions. To understand when to accept a death and when to fight for life. Her biggest opponent is her own father, whom I happen to think is a complete and total sleazebag to her.
