Undercover Magic

Linsey Hall
In a world of suppressed magic, I'm an Unknown. Deadly power, little control. I'm only alive because I pay a Blood Sorcerer to keep me hidden. But when he comes to collect on the debt I can't pay, one of his goons slams me with a deadly curse. Suddenly, I¿m out of options and out of time.When I'm given a rare chance to join the secretive Undercover Protectorate and train at their academy to become an investigator, I have a way to hunt the cure for the curse. They have resources I don¿t. Easy, since I¿m broke.Seems like a good plan, right? At least, until they tell me Cade will be joining me on my hunt for the Blood Sorcerer. He's an actual Celtic war god--and the hottest guy I've ever seen. The catch? I can't let him know that I'm an Unknown, or I'm out on my ass and deader than Hades.

So, random Amazon prime borrow (Kindle Owner's Lending Library) -- a freebie, self-/indie published  and a shorter length work that I really wound up enjoying.

 Not really sure why beyond liking the heroine.  It threw so much at you at once that I'm not sure I have a handle on the story, the series or the worldbuilding.  But just go with it; action-packed and full of pretty much everything supernatural, paranormal or fairy-tale-ish.

 Not sure yet why series is called Dragon's Gift or Valkyrie.  No Valkyries yet.  The main character and her sister's powers are still unknown at end of this one.

 Probably the best review I can give this is that I plan on reading the next novella in the series.
