Prah, Constantine and Baryeh Reviews: Maggie for Hire (Maggie MacKay, Magical Tracker 1) by Kate Danley

Happy May everybody. The rains are falling and the flowers are blooming. Spring is lovely. So are urban fantasy books with kick ass heroines. I’m just saying.
Remember to head over to Constantine and Baryeh’s blogs once you have finished reading my review of Maggie for Hire.

The Blurb
When monsters appear on Earth, Maggie MacKay is on the job. No one is better at hauling the creepy crawlies back where they belong. No one, that is, except Maggie's dad, who vanished in the middle of an assignment. Now, an elf named Killian has shown up with a gig. Seems Maggie's uncle teamed up with the forces of dark to turn Earth into a vampire convenience store, serving bottomless refills on humans. Ah, family...

The only hope for survival lies in tracking down two magical artifacts and a secret that disappeared with Maggie's dad.

WARNING: This book contains cussing, brawling, and unladylike behavior. Proceed with caution. 
My Review
I liked the concept of Maggie being a magical tracker. It reminded me of female bounty hunter books, only she was really adept at her work. The story entertained me, making me laugh in parts. I appreciated that Maggie wasn’t invincible, knew it, and acted accordingly. 

I didn’t see any chemistry between Maggie and Killian even though it was intimated by several of the secondary characters (who I loved). The two seemed more like they would be good friends than anything else, and they definitely worked well together. Killian was a sweetie where Maggie had a hard as nails edge to her. As an elf, I thought he would have been more powerful, and dare I say it, helpful.

I really liked the way the book ended. That’s all I’m saying about that. 

I give this book three and a half church shaped chocolate bars.

I purchased my copy from AmazonUK


  1. Great review. I'm nodding over here. I expected so much more from Killian.

    1. Right! He's an Elf. Magical powers should be used when in need.

  2. Good review Nana!!! We agree on this one!
