I am soooo sad that this series is over! This book was a shock to my heart! I literally cried, laughed and yelled! Now if I could just bring Logan Cross to life, my world would be complete!! *shhhhh, don't tell that to my hubby* ;)

“Dying isn’t the hardest thing you’ll ever do--living is.”

Shine is the fifth and final book of the Mageri series by Dannika Dark. Silver is working hard with her ghuardian, Justus, to learn how to better use her new abilities as a mage. But there is constant danger from Nero, the evil mage that wants to start a war. Nero has been orchestrating attacks on council members. No one is safe.

This book took me through every emotion possible. There were the sweetest of moments between Silver and her

Coming to the end of this series is bitter sweet. The ending couldn't be more astounding for this series. I laughed, I cried, I hated, I loved. Everything you could possibly feel, I felt. This is been a mind-blowing experience and all I have to say is thank you Dannika for taking us on this journey with you. You are an amazingly awesome respectable profound writer. Thank you for sharing your talent, creativity and this world with is. It's hard to say good bye to these set of characters that we ...more

I thought this was a story about Justus and Paige, but it isn't. It's like the 'Young and the Restless' of Urban Fantasy. The MC is actually Silver... guess she is the main character in all the books??
Anyhoo, she doesn't interest me.
Oh well.

I finished this audiobook today and needed a few hrs to let it sync in this was really the last book. I know there is a novella yet but wow what an ending.

I have thoroughly enjoyed this series in audio. Dannkia Dark can sure write a paranormal book that sucks you in to the very last word. I can’t say who my favorite character is because I truly loved them all in their own ways. Yes even Christian who I wasn’t really a fan of, and that’s saying something because I freaking love vam

Well what can I say?
This was an amazing end to an amazing series.
The Author brought everyone together for this final instalment and all the questions you have asked yourself through the series are finally answered.
The Author still managed to shock me and even made me cry but what I love must is the humour that you find in each book. And yes I will admit to warming to character's more that I haven't liked so much in previous books.
I have been a fan of Logan and Silver's relationship from the beg

I'm glad that's over. Lesson learned - buying a whole series on sale is a bad idea. If I hadn't paid for them all, I would have stopped reading after book 2. They aren't terrible. I just found them to be such a slog. The focus on Silver for the entire series bored me to tears and annoyed me to death simultaneously. I've read other series that carried off that plot device perfectly (the Fever series comes to mind). And the over-the-top high reviews of the last 3 books influenced me to buy them ...more

This is the latest and last of the Mageri series by Dannika Dark. I finished it a few days ago but wanted to wait and let everything sink in before writing this, because this book is guaranteed to give you a major book hangover, as it did me. I would like to say that I can’t begin to tell you how much I loved this book and series, but then there wouldn’t be a review, so I will try to explain how really fantastic this book experience has been for me.

This is the last installment of my very favorite series (Mageri Series)… Can you imagine how emotional this made me? I was excited and a mess. I was a mess! I’m beyond grateful to learn that we will continue to see the Mageri world with new casts of characters. Yay. (Maybe some cameos ;))

From the beginning of the series there has been great character and plot growth. Something that I think sets Ms. Dark apart. Each book has been consistently entertaining and gut wrenching. So much develops in th
Between the Bind
Dannika Dark is one of my favorite authors. Every novel keeps the reader flowing through pages until the wee hours of the morning, revealing mystery after love story after action scene that emotes so completely and effortlessly, always leaving you wanting more. Knowing that Shine is the intended last novel of the Mageri series is so perfectly unfortunate - just what I'm sure Ms. Dark intended.

Five stars is the LEAST I could give this installment! Silver and Logan are keeping us busy panting and
It is a sweet sorrow when one of your favorite series ends, SHINE is no exception. Dannika Dark brilliantly ties up all the loose ends and gives us the closure we are looking for but leaves us begging for more of these characters that have become a part of our lives.

I loved the transformation of Silver into the person she is today. Her relationship with Logan is put to the ultimate test. Her true bad-ass-ness is revealed and man what an electrifying show.

Amazing revelations will be revealed, he
First of all...BEST. SERIES. EVER. Second...I liked it so much, that I got sucked into the afterglow of it all so much, that I broke my golden rule, and didn't write my review right away. I know...horrible.

Although I didn't write it right away, I can still say this for sure: I waited a few weeks after this came out to read it. I was scared to let it end. As it turns out, I had nothing to fear. EVERY character had the perfect ending. I wasn't disappointed that one of them got left out, didn't get
Between 50-80% of the book, I was straight out BAWLING. That book is SO fecking sweet! Yeah, I love Logan to pieces, but I also had a thing for Christian. His banter with Silver was hilarious. I'm so happy for Justus and Adam, and Silver's kickass powers are OMG-worthy. The end of the book was SUCH a great way to complete the series and just so beautiful. But I keep thinking back to the fact that Silver will end up outliving her Logan and would be forced to experience his death... God that jail ...more

Not a bad finale! The author tied up all loose ends, and there is a happy ending. Cliché or not, I have always liked happy endings.

The series is not the best I have read in this particular genre. This is mainly because the protagonista is not up to the mark. She is repeatedly described as special and extraordinary, but her actions and overall mien prove otherwise. In this final book she does reveal some of her powers but I wish Ms. Dark would have gone for a more vivid explanation of her abilit

Shine is the final installment to Dannika Dark's Mageri Series. I don't know about everyone else, but after reading Sterling, I had a crush on Dannika Dark. And now I know I'm in love with her writing. Over the last five books, she's made me fall completely head over heels with her characters.

The series was a slow and tantalizing build up of flavors until we reached Shine. Shine is the apex of all the books: It was definitely a finale that I will not forget. I laughed at Silvers antics (and lets
Amy Dark Night Reads
The finale of Dannika's The Mageri Series was a slam dunk. Although I missed some action that is normally heavier in earlier books, Shine is a perfect example of wrap up and send you away happy. Being a hug fan of Justus and Silver, I was happy to see each walk away with what they should have. Not to give any spoilers, but there are definitely some shockers, and sigh worthy moments that will just keep you reading more. Silver definitely kicked ass in this book and showed her true meaning of ...more

This was an extremely emotional book for me. I have a very bad habit of not reading the last book in a series because I do not like saying goodbye. I am so glad I read Shine. I've read some pretty intense and emotional books but this one took me on one hell of a wild ride. The characters faced and overcame things that I sure as hell couldn't have. As rough as some parts were to read, I understand everything that lead to the ending. It was beautiful and it was perfect. I couldn't have asked for a ...more

One of my favorite series

This book is awesome this series is AMAZING Dannika Dark is a brilliant writer. This one of the best series I have read, I have read JR Wards black dagger brotherhood series, Gena showalter lords of the underground series, pc cast goddess summoning series and Dakota Cassidy's accidental series and this series is just as good. Great read I would recommend the stories have so much twist and turns but not done in a cheap attempt to entertain but with creative skill love it.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this series. Reading Shine was like watching the last episode of your favorite show. It was like knowing your good friend would be moving to the other side of the world. This was a bitter sweet read. Dannika Dark continues to develop her characters to the very end. She did a great job tying up all the story lines while throwing in a few surprising twists. I am looking forward to future spin offs. I miss Logan already.

Wow, just wow! This was such a great end to the Mageri series! I adored this series and was sad to lose Silver and Logan. I really hope to see more books set in this world. I have nothing bad to say about this book or this series or this author! Five glittery stars!

So this book was bitter sweet for me. I love the Mageri Series and I hate when something well written comes to an end. I was sucked into this world and it made me realize how bland my reality is. I have hope though since everyone in these books either has a long (centuries) or immortal life that maybe there will be a story a hundred years from now where Finn has a pack, Simon finds love, Christian (*sigh* Christian I love you) finds something, and maybe some of the existing characters have ...more
