Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for providing me with an advanced copy in exchange for an honest review.

If you haven't picked up Breach, then you're missing the first book in the series so you'll need to read that before you pick this one up.

I really like the main protagonist, Karen O'Neil. The first book showed her gumption and drive to become a great magician, and this book continues that journey for her. She also shows a great compassion for others, a deep moral compass, and a sense of

Make sure you read the first book in this series, Breach, before you read this one.

Revolution is the 2nd installment in the Cold War Magic series. It is a new installment in what I consider to be a great newcomer in the Urban Fantasy or Speculative Fantasy genre. I would lean towards more calling it Speculative Fantasy because it tells an alternate version of what happened at the end of World War II where magic is a known entity and only some people were born with magic. Where the first book has a setting in Berlin and describes how magic played a key part in how the war ended ...more

4.5 stars

Thankfully, I read the first book in the series first. *That is essential!!* As a reader, you will understand everything infinitely better if you start with Breach.

I could not put this book down. There was so much action, mystery, suspense - I found myself holding my breath while I tried to keep up.

The main character, Karen, trusts more than she should, and despite throwing herself headfirst into various situations with spies, is fairly naive about others' intentions and agendas (either

I have to start off by saying, I had no clue this was book two in a series. That being said, you can still enjoy the book but I would recommend reading book one first. What a thrilling and intriguing read! It is set during the cold war era. There is a vintage vibe that I felt while reading it. I totally loved it! You have magic, spies, and a heroine. I love the author’s twist in combining history with magic. Nice touch. This story kept me engaged and left me wanting more! This easily became a ...more

I really liked this book. I wish I would have read the first in the series before I read this, but this book was still enjoyable.
