They say it took one hundred magical beings to defeat the first Arcanist. Great care was taken to ensure the secret to his malevolent power died with him. Now the brutal reign of the Arcanist has become little more than a scary bedtime story. And yet, the descendants of his loyal followers are sworn to find a way to bestow his dark magic upon another. If they succeed, they’ll unleash a new terror upon an unsuspecting world.
Desperate to save those she holds dear, Jen joins a coven of blood witches to infiltrate the castle where her friends are being held. Yet the farther she ventures into her façade, the more she risks losing herself to its alluring darkness. With the arcanist growing stronger by the day, the only spell that can stop the oncoming wave of blood and war comes at a price. With love on the line, and fear in her heart, can Jen battle back the evil ravenous to consume her?
Magic Sacrificed is the sixth and final book in the Urban Fantasy series, Rise of the Arcanist, featuring dark witches, vampires, elementals, and more. It is a New Adult spin-off of USA Today Bestselling author Elizabeth Kirke’s award-winning More than Magic series. If you like your paranormal with a dash of thriller and characters you'll fall in love with, you'll want to grab the edge-of-your-seat conclusion today!
Rise of the Arcanist is a complete six-book serial. You do *not have to read the original More than Magic trilogy to enjoy it.*
In Rise of the Arcanist, non-magics and witches are going missing. The non-magics are never heard from again while the witches are disappearing for 6 months at a time. There is no evidence of where they go or how they survive because there’s no activity on their bank accounts and MES files. After stumbling onto this pattern, Jen, Thomas, Mariana, Ember, Char, Danio, and TS are tasked with investigating the disappearances.
Book 1 – lays the groundwork
Book 2 – 3 words: A FREAKING LABYRINTH!
Book 3 – Kirke tries to kill the entire cast!
Book 4 – Arena Fights! I now have more grey hairs. Thanks, Kirke.
Book 5 – This installment was so heavy. All the feels. I AM NOT OKAY!
And now we have made it to the final installment. I feel like I should have won a prize for making this far. Elizabeth Kirke is killing me and not so softly.
“Help us, Jennifer. You’re our only hope.” (Like what I did there?)
OH. MY. GAWD. Tums is acceptable as a reading snack, right? It is up to Jen to destroy the Arcanist. Jen who hasn’t been a witch that long. Young, inexperienced, and working alone. Elizabeth Kirke is killing me! My anxiety was through the roof.
Stomach ache - check
Chest tightness - check
Sweating - check
Eating Tums like candy - check
In true Kirke form, Elizabeth delivers the reader an intense, kindle gripping chapter from one of the guys' POV, and then in the next chapter she goes to Jen. You see what is going on from her POV which is sometimes from the sidelines. Insightful? Yes. But absolute agony! No doubt Kirke sat back with an evil grin plastered on her face sipping coffee and enjoyed every excruciating moment!
The epic battle lasted for chapters. Chapters people! This is why I need Tums. I had a death grip on my kindle for 4 long hours. I couldn’t put it down. I had to know how it would all end and who would be left standing. In the end, I was not disappointed. Mentally exhausted, overwhelmed, and still chewing Tums, but I survived.
