Shine (Mageri Series: Book 5) by Dannika Dark
+ Favorite Quotes:
“What kind of man seduces a woman like this? You’re a royal asshole.” “Maybe so. But I’m an asshole with a large cock and a hungry appetite, so put on your dress and piss off.”
“My heart beats only for you, Little Raven.” “Forever?” He paused for a moment and disappeared into my eyes. “I will love you until the stars burn out and we are nothing more than cosmic dust.”
“Maybe if I love you hard enough, the rest of the world will disappear.” “Little Raven, I would not want the world to disappear. You are my world, so stay right where you are.”
“You may have marked your body with my name, but your name is an indelible ink across my heart. I love you, female. That means I go nowhere without you at my side.”

Mageri Series Reading Order
You know how you get excited when the final book in a series comes out, and you can’t wait to read it? Well, that was me, and I fell in love all over again with the characters and series.
This book was a fitting ending, it had the usual witty banter, love stories, and additions to the character list that enhanced the story line and series, plus finales for some characters you were wondering about from the previous books. I laughed and got teary-eyed, shocked and saddened, but through it all, my two favorite characters, Silver and Logan, were still the focus of the story.
Now, you need to read the whole series, because it is an original urban fantasy/paranormal romance with characters you will grow to love, and the sayings/writing is so different than what you expect from a similar series. I cannot recommend this series or author enough, her style of writing is unique. It was hard to keep this review and favorite quotes so short. You can read my reviews for the other books on Goodreads, too.[/box_light]
In the short span of a year, Silver has gone from becoming a Mage to discovering the truth about her unique genetics. Logan Cross went from her mortal enemy to her immortal lover, but a threat is fast approaching like an inevitable storm. Attacks are underway against the Mageri and one man is behind it—an elusive foe who is an unstoppable force. Nero is not Silver’s only concern as someone close to her is arrested for treason. In the midst of chaos, Silver discovers she cannot protect everyone from the wrath of fate, including her own Ghuardian.
Justus finally opens his heart, but an unexpected turn of events could darken his soul forever. Secrets are revealed that will leave you reeling from one twist after the next. Would you sacrifice everything for love?
Destiny has set sail and once she alters her course, no one’s life will ever be the same in this explosive conclusion to the Mageri Series.

My first foray into the Romance genre came my freshman year in high school English, where the teacher had us all read books from several different genres. So, my first book boyfriend and PnR introduction, if you will, was Richard Merlin, from The Wizard of Seattle. Prior to that, I’d only read Fantasy or Sci-fi, with a little teen horror thrown in for angst. I was reading The Vampire Diaries decades before it was even a twinkle in the eyes of the producers. Now, I am addicted to PnR, always reading at least one book a week about vamps, wolves, angels, demons, Fae, or overall magic. Follow me on Goodreads [/box_dark]
