Since the High Moon Pack was attacked, Cormac’s need for blood has almost been out of control. Worried he’s become a danger to his loved ones, he’s chosen to stay away from his family to keep them safe. When Cormac’s bloodlust endangers an innocent bystander, Liam, the pack beta, volunteers to feed him. It sates Cormac’s need and brings him and Liam together in unexpected ways.

The High Moon Pack remains under assault and Simon and Gray don’t know why. A person with three kinds of magic is out to destroy them and to fight such power, they need help—even if it’s from the Council of Mages and Weres. Cormac’s struggling with the knowledge that his past is hurting his family. It causes Simon to be thrust into trying to defeat their enemy using the power of the triad and if he’s unsuccessful, he could end up dead.

Soul Magic is the last release in Poppy Dennison’s Triad series and because of the ongoing storyline, the books must be read in order.

I’ve been anxiously waiting for this book since I finished Body Magic but when I got my hands on it, I was sad that this amazing trilogy had come to a close. So, before I go any farther, let me just say that I enjoyed not only Soul Magic but the entire series for a variety of reasons. The world building is complex with vivid details, there’s great personality development, couple relationships are strong and the storyline just got better from one book to the next. I can’t forget the wonderful secondary characters either. They play important roles throughout and in this release Liam and Cormac move forward into the primary romance position. 

I like Liam and Cormac and they make a good couple but with everything going on while trying to defeat the bad guy, their romance doesn’t take center stage, which is a shame. It’s my only real complaint, but there’s enough time allowed to understand how they feel for each other—it still works, even if their relationship isn’t fully developed. There are plenty of twists and danger to keep you surprised as the story races to the end. And best of all Ms. Dennison manages to nicely wrap up all the plot threads. Take it from me, read this entertaining series. You won’t be sorry.
