Magic and Decay is a Rachel Higginson Halloween Special!
This fast and fun novel packs a punch when Rachel takes three of her favorite couples from three different series and throws them into the Zombie Apocalypse.
Eden and Kiran from the Star-Crossed Series, Ivy and Ryder from the Siren Series and Reagan and Hendrix from Love and Decay join forces to survive a regular but deadly day at the end of the world.
Ivy’s seductive Siren call doesn’t just apply to human men. Zombies of all shapes, sizes and states of decay flock to her, unable to resist her pull. Armed with limited resources and dwindling Magic, the three couples fight alongside each other to stay alive and unbitten. But even with all these supernatural powers combined, no one is safe when Zombies are involved.
Magic and Decay is a stand-alone novel. You do not need to have read any of these series to enjoy this book.
I adored this short, fun read to no end! We get taken back to the LOVE AND DECAY setting but with a few old friends thrown in. Yep, that's right! Not only do we get a bit more Reagan and Hendrix (who are my favorite book couple of all time) but we get some screen time with Kiran and Eden and Ivy and Ryder.
Although I have only read book one from the Siren Series, I still enjoyed reading about Ivy and Ryder and didn't feel like I was missing anything. In fact, it makes me want to catch up sooner on that series. I was also reminded of how much I love my love/hate relationship with Kiran. He wasn't as bad as I have remembered him in the past. So in the end it all worked out well for me. ;)
I definitely recommend this quick read if you have a few minutes on your hands or in-between books. 5 Zombie/Magic Packed Stars!
