But our heroes are tenacious, even if their life is at stake, they will go through all that. It was a very good book, a nice conclusion. We can read it very fast as everything happens very quickly, allowing us to immerse ourselves completely in the pace of the action and the speed of the events.
Zay and Allie will face many dangers, and even more than we might think, and yet they remain united, supporting the one and the other. We discover the consequences of the magical union between Shame and Terric and I must say that it was amazing. Shame is always equal to himself, still funny and subconscious but we love him like that. I loved his speech at the end of the book elsewhere. We thus discover Daniel from a new perspective and we then understand his character and the sacrifices he has made throughout his life.

In Allie's world, magic is available to the general public through a series of grids laid across the city, and Hounds help keep people from using dark magic to harm others. Every act of magic exacts a price from its user—generally in the form of physical pain—so most Hounds rely on narcotics or alcohol. Allie uses just aspirin, but her heavy use of magic causes migraines and bruising, as well as spotty memory loss, so she has to keep a daily journal to jog her memory of day-to-day events.
Several books into the series, Allie learns that Zayvion has an extremely important position with the Authority —he is the Guardian of the Gates portals used to travel through space and he is the Authority's primary closer. Allie's father, Daniel, becomes a more important character in later books, mostly after his death. Daniel is a technological genius and a powerful magic user who is responsible for creating the magic grids that allow wide use of magic across Portland.
He also invented magic-holding discs that are important to the plots of some of the later books. Dad wants to go back to the days when black and white magic could be used together, and he wants to be the immortal mage who will control all magic.
