An Eternal Guardians Novella. A Druid of Her Own. Blade to the Keep. That Old Black Magic. Liam is the pack's beta and he fought the triad alongside Cormac and was severely injured. Liam knows that Cormac isn't telling the truth and he's determined to get to the bottom of it.
All of this is going on while Cormac and Liam are fighting an attraction, the triad is threatening the pack, and Simon is struggling to understand what is going on with his magic and why it seems similar to the triad's. This book was so exciting! I couldn't put it down because every time I turned around, something new and thrilling was jumping off the page at me! The final magical fight is so exhilarating. This book and, in fact, the series is much more than I thought it would be.
The underlying message is family and love but with family really being the true focus. The love stories ran parallel with the mystery of the triad magic and why the three types of magic had split apart so long ago but the love stories did not detract from the message of unity, family, and pack.
I didn't want the book to end. I didn't want to leave this beautifully magical world with such amazing men--and those two wonderful little boys I despise kids, too, btw. I kept thinking, "Maybe she can be convinced to write a fourth and fifth book! Soul Magic is the perfect wrap up of a terrific series. I know I'll come back to visit the High Moon Pack boys again and again. But even though I would have liked to have seen more of their relationship developing, the drama and action of the main storyline sucked me in and had me quickly turning the pages.
Simon and Gray definitely had their hands full fighting off constant attacks and trying to keep their pack safe, especially little Riley and Garon. And man the hits just 4. And man the hits just kept on coming. And poor Aunt Maggie! So sad she had to die: There were some real heart-breaking moments but they were necessary in order to show the true danger they all faced and for alliances to be made against a common foe.
I really liked how everything came full circle with the characters, although I still don't know how I feel about the Council of Mages. Why didn't they investigate the death of Mage Master Thomas or check up on Simon after Thomas tried to kill him and steal his powers in the first book? Were they involved since two mages accompanied Thomas at the time he delivered the Council's judgment on Simon? The magical battles were so intense, and I'll admit a bit of it went right over my head while trying to figure out what exactly was going on and analyzing how certain things could be possible, but then I just plain forgot about my questions because I was more concerned about who was going to survive in the end.
I thought how could the author possibly pull this off? I shouldn't have worried because it was a very satisfactory resolution.

The epilogue was wonderful too because it took us 20 years into the future so we could see the continuing growth of the pack and how our beloved characters were doing. Definitely had a smile on my face at the end and I really enjoyed this series.

I hate it when a so called series solely concentrates each new book entirely about the new couple from the original book, ignoring the original MC's. I only mention this because of the blurb to book 2. I was very hesitant to continue onto book 2 when I read the blurb B 4.
See a Problem?
I was very hesitant to continue onto book 2 when I read the blurb BUT I was so happy it was not like this and was a true trilogy, unlike the path that some other series take where the authors choose NOT to include the initial MC's or gives them a brief mention in the first chapter. In some severe cases they shouldn't even been considered part of a series but stand alone novels. Rant out over that but it's a HUGE pet peeve of mine.
The Triad series doesn't do this with the exception of book 4 which I'm not even going to read because the prologue at the end of Soul Magic, book 3 was EXCELLENT and tied up all the lose ends really well and that's another thing I find lacking at times and, another thing I get really annoyed about with a lot of books but not in this case. I won't lie an say that they were incredible but they are well written and a great escape from the land of contemporary which I OD'ed on quite a while back and it takes a lot of good reviews from friends before I go back there these days. I'll shut up now May 01, Blue Bayou.
The story for Liam and Cormac was so back burner it should have been in the next door neighbor's kitchen. Understandably, there was a greater story line here that needs to be told however, in doing so Liam and Cormac, I think, were totally slighted. Then Cormac, internal monologue, decides to stay away from Liam for so It was ok. Then Cormac, internal monologue, decides to stay away from Liam for some unknown reason?? And then Liam is escorting Cormac to get blood from unknown someone at a club and all the sudden Liam is Mr.
Then they had sex. Then all hell breaks loose and Liam tells Cormac he can't live without him! Literally sex, story line of Simon and Grey, then some Simon and Grey with kids and just a smidgen of Simon and Grey with others and then we get Liam making Cormac swear he'll come back. Really, Liam and Cormac should have been shelved and this should have been Simon and Grey part deux.
It probably would have been a better story. And then a little of Liam and Cormac which which was perfect considering the rest of the story. Although each book gives us a new couple to cheer on ultimately the series revolves around Gray and Simon. This review may contain some small spoilers for the previous two books which you should read in order.
The two decide the answer to his overwhelming need for blood is to feed from Liam. This sets their physical relationship into motion. Throughout the book the guys get closer and the obstacles put in front of seem to bring out the need to protect and care for each other. When the children are threatened again everyone puts their resources into finding a way to stop the bad guy.
When Cormac gets a visit from the baddie himself he realizes how it all comes full circle back to him Jan 08, Candice rated it really liked it Shelves: I liked this one better than Body Magic. I was told that Liam and Cormac took a backseat, but I didn't see that. I am glad Liam was persistent and wouldn't let Cormac hide from him for the safety of the pack. I also liked how Cormac talked through his issues with him and didn't lie or hide. I bawled when Simon was forced to do something he didn't want to do.
Garon and Riley tore at my heart, but they were both so strong, especially Garon. How is he only 10? Did anyone else see a difference? Moving on to Wild Magic: May 06, Leaundra rated it it was amazing. This was so good and I loved seeing what everyone was up to. If you haven't started this series I would start today. You're lucky because you can get all three books. I love when that happens. It tied up everything nicely. Excited for the new series ;-.
Apr 17, Aure7ia rated it liked it Shelves: Sep 27, Phaney rated it really liked it Shelves: A great finale to the trilogy. Yes, I know a fourth book is scheduled but it seems to not connect directly to the preceding ones and, to be honest, I feel that the story ended with this one. Again we follow Simon, with a new couple in the backdrop. This is necessary for the plot but nicely balanced against the main narrative.
I really like Simon as a character. As Liam points out, he can be very fragile — and then the strongest of them all A great finale to the trilogy. Somehow those contradictions are believable to me in him.

I like Liam and him just fine; no problem. But why is he suddenly using keys to unlock his house? I thought it was safeguarded magically and left open otherwise? Or Gray, view spoiler [not even sending a word of comfort through the mind link after that big dramatic scene hide spoiler ].
The emotions and the descriptions. Nothing overdone and yet I was with both viewpoint character at every twist and turn and it all worked emotionally. To see everyone aged so much simply makes me sad.
Mortality just never agrees with me. On the other hand this supplies a thorough and satisfying way to say goodbye to the characters. Neither is a big deal, actually. Something isolated to a specific author maybe. But here it happened again. I found somewhat more grating that the pride of mountain lions keeps being referred to as a pack. That word is used like a blanket term for all groups of weres. The alpha thing too.
This book — this series — is certainly not perfect. But tells an intense story that manages parallel couples without once losing focus of the main storyline or feathering too much apart in the process.
And I really enjoyed being along for the ride. View all 10 comments.
May 05, Pixie Mmgoodbookreviews rated it really liked it Shelves: 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. 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.
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. 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. Jul 11, Christy rated it it was amazing Shelves: Oh, I was so eager to get my hands on this final story in the 'Triad' series by Poppy Dennison. I am, literally, trembling at the beginning of what I know is going to be an incredible finale to a series that I have so enjoyed.
I'm not even ten percent in and there is a lot of excitement and drama happening. Cormac is Simon's great-great-however-many-greats grandfather and he's not doing very well after fighting the triad at the end of 'Body Magic'. Cormac is a vampire and a Mage but something tha Oh, I was so eager to get my hands on this final story in the 'Triad' series by Poppy Dennison. Cormac is a vampire and a Mage but something that night, during the fight, has terrified him and he doesn't know if he can believe what he saw.
The worst part is that if it's true he'll need to be honest with Gray and Simon and suffer the consequences of holding the secret. Liam is the pack's beta and he fought the triad alongside Cormac and was severely injured. Liam knows that Cormac isn't telling the truth and he's determined to get to the bottom of it. All of this is going on while Cormac and Liam are fighting an attraction, the triad is threatening the pack, and Simon is struggling to understand what is going on with his magic and why it seems similar to the triad's.
This book was so exciting! I couldn't put it down because every time I turned around, something new and thrilling was jumping off the page at me! The final magical fight is so exhilarating. This book and, in fact, the series is much more than I thought it would be. The underlying message is family and love but with family really being the true focus.
In each of these stories the couples were intent on sending the message that "together we can do this". The love stories ran parallel with the mystery of the triad magic and why the three types of magic had split apart so long ago but the love stories did not detract from the message of unity, family, and pack.
I loved this book and the series. I highly recommend it to any reader who enjoys the paranormal, shifters, and magic.
