What happened to Fenris after he fled Solantha?
Fenris is no stranger to picking up the pieces of his life and starting over. Three years ago, he was forced to flee his life as Chief Mage of Nebara, and undergo a magical procedure that changed him into a shifter and forever altered the course of his future.
But even though adjusting to life as a shifter was hard, Fenris had friends in Solantha. This time, to save his friends from being caught up in his own troubles, he’s fled to Abbsville, a small human town with less than one-thousand people. And not a single ally to rely on.
Or so he thinks.
Not long after he arrives in town, Fenris finds himself entangled with Mina — a beautiful veterinarian with a heart of gold, and secrets lurking behind her gentle smile. Fenris knows he should stay away, but he has never been able to turn away when an innocent is in trouble. And it doesn’t take him very long to realize that Mina is in a whole world of it.
If Fenris and Mina want to keep their secrets intact, they are going to have to learn to trust each other. But trust is a hard thing to give, especially when you’ve spent your entire life running…
This is a spin-off series following the events of Scorched by Magic, book 7 in the Baine Chronicles series. While you are not required to have read the previous series to enjoy this one, it is highly recommended that you do.
Unlike the Baine Chronicles, which is written from Sunaya’s POV, this spin-off is written in dual first person POV — in other words, from the viewpoints of both Fenris and Mina. Sunaya’s series contains foul language, violence, and some adult situations, whereas Fenris’s story has tamer language but much more romance.
Genre: New Adult Fantasy Romance
Title: Fugitive by Magic
Series: The Baine Chronicles: Fenris’s Story #1

I really enjoy The Baine Chronicles and seeing Fenris, whom I found extremely endearing despite not being the main hero in Sunaya’s life, with his own spin-off was really exciting. It’s not the fast-paced action that paints Sunaya’s life, but it totally fits him to a T.
Fenris and Mina were cool. I liked how they were both in hiding and wanted to lie low, but couldn’t, because of the eventual feels they succumbed to. It was definitely a much slower pace, a little more romantic like the author mentioned, but it perfectly fit Fenris’ chill and calculating personality. The tone was more methodical, and Mina- to quote Fenris -was like a star of soft light. You meet her in this book and get a little more personal with Fenris’ past, but I loved how sweet she was. Sweet, but still smart about keeping safe and sticking up for herself.
It was an overall fun, small town read with the suspense of keeping hidden and taking a chance on something more, even if it leads you through danger. Check it out if you’re a Baine fan, and if you enjoy shifters and mages and hidden identities, then… what are you waiting for?
