A Ruse To Unchain Us: The Magi Accounts 4 by Michele Notaro

The Magi Accounts series continues with A Ruse To Unchain Us. War is coming, and Cosmo and Madeo must prepare themselves and their family pride for the oncoming danger. Separation is unbearable and sacrifices must be made, but at the end of the day Cosmo and Madeo find love centers them as a couple and a family. 

From the blurb:

It’s time to fight back, and by the goddess, I will help free my people.

The Cloaked Freeway is finally in a position to effect real change, and I want so badly to be a part of it. Since I was a little kid, it’s been my dream to free my people from under the human’s rule. And now I have the chance to make that dream a reality.

But helping them means giving up so much. I have a family now—a pride—and I don’t want to put them at risk. Luckily for me, my mate wants to be a part of the revolution, too, but that still leaves everyone else.

The world is turning into chaos around us and our family is being pulled in different directions, but I know one thing for sure. The Ono-Nais are fighters, and we’ll do everything in our power to keep each other safe and help those around us.

A Ruse To Unchain Us is the fourth book in the MM urban fantasy series, The Magi Accounts. It’s recommended to read the series in order because the romance progresses through the series and it has an ongoing storyline, but there is NO cliffhanger.

*Intended for adults only. Please read the trigger warnings at the beginning of this novel.

SNik's Review:

Fourth in series (The Magi Accounts), must be read in order. Paranormal. Established couple and found family. 

Some time has passed since the last book and the start of this one, and Cosmo and Madeo are making plans to be involved in the upcoming war for magi freedom and nonhuman equality. That means trying to save as many magi as they can while keeping the members of their pride safe. 

Readers should brace themselves for plenty of action and a huge amount of angst as the beloved characters from this series are put in danger, trying to fight and survive together, become separated and reunited, and continue to share their deep love for their family and pride mix of magi, shifters and humans. 

As usual, Cosmo is the strength and rock that everyone leans upon, especially Madeo. Cosmo’s consistency, love and loyalty are unwavering and just total swoon. Cosmo and Madeo love deeply and hard, and every moment on page with them seeking each other’s touch and presence makes them one of my favorite romantic couples of all time.
