Review: Magic Redeemed (Hall of Blood and Mercy #2) by K.M. Shea

About the Book
I thought life would be easier after I unsealed my magic.

Spoiler: it’s not.

I want to free my family from my traitorous cousin, but with all the allies he’s got guarding his back, even my new powers won’t be enough to beat him. My best bet is to use my parents’ signet ring to prove my claim of leadership.

There’s just one problem…

I can’t find it!

Things aren’t looking so good for my vampire housemates, either. As Killian Drake’s conflicts with the fae get worse, it's clear that war will break out soon if something doesn’t change.

Plus, Killian has gotten really weird about smelling me and invading my personal space. Every time he comes near my heart almost pops out of my chest, but I’m sure that’s just terror caused by being so close to the most feared vampire in the region.

At least that’s what I keep telling myself.

So, I’m a wizard searching for a ring while trying to survive living with a bunch of vampires and their deadly and suddenly touchy-feely leader. Yeah, life is definitely not easier.

Hall of Blood and Mercy is an urban fantasy trilogy featuring all your favorite vampires, wizards, fae, and werewolves. It’s packed with humor, adventure, and a sweet, slow burn romance between a vertically challenged wizard and the most lethal vampire in town.

My Thoughts

I enjoyed Magic Redeemed just as much as the first book in this series. It was so much fun and a great escape.

Hazel's still on a mission to regain control of House Medeis from the backstabbing traitor Mason. She's finally coming into her full powers and is training hard to use it and use it well. But it seems like every possible obstacle there could be is getting in the way of her achieving that goal. Can she find a way to overcome or will all her hopes be dashed again?

Just as the previous book, this one is mostly told from Hazel's POV. She's a great narrator. Very personable and funny. There's a few chapters from Killian's perspective which I really liked. It was nice to see his viewpoint and I wouldn't mind even more from him in the next book.

I'm so anxious for book three. I'm very thankful for the quick release schedule, so I don't have to wait long between installments. If you're a fan of urban fantasy, definitely check out this series. 

4.5 Stars


  1. A quick release schedule is the best when a series sounds this good -- and LMAO vertically challenged wizard huh? I think I'm going to love the humour in this!

    1. It's awful having to wait a year or more for the next book in a series. By that time, I've usually forgotten what happened. So I really appreciate series like this. :)

  2. Glad this second book was as good as the first. Even better that the third one's being released so fast. :)

    1. It's so nice! I'm excited to read it soon! :)

  3. I really need to go back to reading paranormal books again, one of my most favorite genres.

    1. It's one of my favorite genres too. I hadn't been reading as much of it in the last couple years, but I'm so excited to get back to into it. :)
