Soul Magic (Triad, #3) - Poppy Dennison 4 1/2 Hearts

Review written for MM Good Book Reviews

This book is part of a series and must be read in order. After being gravely injured when the High Moon Pack was attacked, Cormac has been unable to slake his thirst, terrified that he will be a danger to his family, he has been avoiding them until pack beta Liam comes searching for him. Liam’s offer to feed him to take the edge off his hunger works, but both men are drawn to each other for more than just convenience. Simon and Gray are facing a foe that is powerful, trying to find a solution to their problems is hard when they have the Council of Weres breathing down their necks and they have to turn to the disbelieving Council of Mages for aid.

Soul Magic is the final instalment of the Triad series, weaving together all the tendrils from the previous books to bring us a final showdown that is brilliant. Cormac is struggling to keep a leash on his blood lust, when Liam insists on feeding him so he can help the pack, it is an experience for both of them. Cormac and Liam become close and start to develop a relationship, as they wade through the problems that someone from Cormac’s past throws at them. We see a great amount of Gray and Simon as their strong relationship is tested and they support each other through the trials they face, as they pull together their pack, family and the Mage and Were Councils.

I loved the way this story didn’t miss anything from the previous books, everything that we have learned in the past comes to fruition in an amazing confrontation between a true triad and a poor imitation triad. The storyline has stayed strong throughout the series, each relationship has been brilliant and Cormack’s and Liam’s is no different, they are really hot together and burn up the pages. Although I adored the story I just wish we could have seen more of Cormac and Liam and their relationship developing. Instead we got scenes of them together, but Simon dominated more of the storyline so I felt that Cormac and Liam got cheated.

I will recommend this story to those who love paranormal, fantasy, mages, vampires, shifters, a complex stoyline coming to fruition, loving characters, danger, loss, finding love and a very happy fantastic ending.
