Maggie for Hire (Maggie MacKay, Magical Tracker,#1)

Maggie MacKay is a tracker of supernatural beings, she is great at her job. She learned from the best, her Dad, who disappeared without a trace in the middle of an assignment.

An elf named Killian has shown up with an assignment. Maggie's Uncle is working with the forces of dark to turn Earth into a "Vampire Convenience Store", with humans as their number one source. Together the two have to track down magical objects, and stop her evil Uncle.

A fast paced supernatural thriller. I really liked Maggie, she is spunky, sassy, down to earth and knows her job well. Killian was just as likable. I liked the plot, it was original, the characters were well rounded, the supernatural beings were awesome.

There was a lot of action, drama, and humor. I like that in a story. I definitely will be following Maggie's story and highly recommend Maggie for Hire to those who love supernatural thrillers. I also liked the cover, it captures Maggie at her best. ( )

I enjoyed Maggie for Hire. Maggie comes from a family of different worlds. Her mother is human and has the seer ability. Her father is from the Other World and is a tracker. Maggie has the powers while her twin sister does not.

Maggie's life takes a turn when an Elf named Killian comes to her rescue and proceeds to tell her that she is needed to save both Earth and the Other World. Maggie discovers that she actually has family and it is her evil Uncle Ulrich who she will have to destroy to save the human world from Vampires.

This was a nice easy read for a cold Sunday morning. ( )

"Maggie For Hire" is a fast, funny and furious thrill-ride through The Other Side. Kate Danley's second novel hits the ground running and doesn't pause to catch its breath until the final pages. An utterly delicious, guilty-pleasure of a book. ( )

Two worlds, one contain us and the other containing them — sort of. If all the magical people stayed on the other side, Maggie would have nothing to do but visit her mother and worry about her missing father.

The thing is that creatures can travel between. The legal portals are regulated. Maggie can make the illegal type. Chasing down vampires and ghouls leads her to a partnership with a smoking hot elf and unpaid quest to save the worlds.

I recommend this to anyone who likes a feisty female hero who doesn’t always get it right. ( )

Book description
When monsters appear in Los Angeles, Maggie MacKay is on the job. No one is better at hauling the creepy crawlies back where they belong. No one, that is, except her dad, who disappeared without a trace in the middle of an assignment.

Now an elf named Killian has shown up with a gig. Seems Maggie's uncle is working with the forces of dark to turn Earth into a vampire convenience store, serving bottomless refills on humans.

The only hope for survival lies in tracking down two magical objects and a secret that vanished with Maggie's father.

WARNING: This book contains cussing, brawling, and unladylike behavior. Proceed with caution.
