Why this book?:
I saw another book in this series on Wowbrary and it caught my interest. But I read series in order, so this one needed to come first. I didn't want to wait for ILL so I requested my library purchase the ebook.
Mason is a magic practitioner with a dog-like companion (an Ifrit) name Lou/Louie. He's not very invested in his magic. He uses it sure, but he doesn't put much into it. Music is more his thing. But someone seems to have a problem with him, and he's found himself in some sticky situations. Situations that may or may not be related to some strange goings-on.
I enjoyed reading this, though I had trouble with one part. The reasoning in the book is that people familiar with magic and Ifrits just expect things to happen a certain way, but... Well it bothered me, but I moved past it, and I look forward to reading the next book in the series, New Tricks.
