Another Kind of Magic (Caitlyn Book 3) 

by Elzabeth Davies

Another Kind of Magic

Synopsis:

“I am a cat. But I am no ordinary cat. I am a witch’s familiar. I am also a woman, with a woman’s heart and a woman’s frailty.”

Nearly two hundred years have passed since Caitlyn was trapped by supernatural forces and black magic, and she has known many mistresses. This time, the witch she is enthralled to is Joan, wife of Llewelyn, Prince of Wales.

At first, this mistress appears no different to any of the others Caitlyn has served – until Llewelyn captures William de Braose, and Joan falls in love, risking everything, including Caitlyn, to fulfil her desire.

Caitlyn, meanwhile, has her own cross to bear in the form of the gallant and reckless Hugh of Pembroke…




Christie’s Review

4.5 STARS

Another Kind of Magic by Elizabeth Davies is the third book in the series, and I have to say my favorite so far! It has been almost two hundred years since Caitlyn was a victim of black magic and forced to be a familiar to witches. The witches she has been forced to be with haven’t always been the best to be with. This time her mistress is Joan, wife of Llewelyn, who happens to be the Prince of Wales. What is so unusual is that Joan has the attention of William de Braose, and it appears that she is falling in love with him. To make matters worse, she is willing to risk everything to be with him and that include Caitlyn’s life.

With every book, Davies has increased the action and suspense. She has had me on the edge of my seat more than once throughout reading the series. I didn’t think she could top that after reading the second book, but I was wrong. Sometimes when reading a series, I notice with each book, they may lack some of the luster they had in earlier ones, but that isn’t the case with this book. She just continues to add more layers and mystery. This is also a more emotional read for me too. As the title says, this is another kind of magic. This one is the magic of love, and Caitlyn may finally get the man who truly understands and loves her.

I know I sound like a broken record, but the ending of the book was another surprise. As always, I love the historical note at the end. I love how she combines fiction with actual characters who existed in the real world. That always adds more depth to the story. This was another winner from Elizabeth Davies.

A Stain on the Soul

A Stain on the Soul

by Elizabeth Davies

 

Synopsis

Resigned to another lifetime of being a witch’s familiar, Caitlyn has found a degree of peace in her role as the Duke of Normandy’s protector and spy.

But that peace is shattered when she returns to her native land only to come face-to-face with her past, and fall in love with a man who she desperately hopes will become her future.



Christie’s Review

4.5 STARS

This is another exciting addition to an intriguing series! The author does an incredible job of combining historical fiction with paranormal elements.

As we learned from the last book, Caitlyn did not get the freedom she craved, and now she finds herself as familiar to another witch, one she doesn’t like nor respect. She has resigned herself to that fact, but it won’t be without danger or excitement.

Without spoiling the plot, Caitlyn goes through many changes within the pages of this book. She even finds possible love. She still amazes me. I don’t know how she continues to be a familiar as she hasn’t had the best of mistresses, yet she continues to go on and make the best of it. She certainly deserves some peace and happiness, and I’m so glad I get to be on this journey with her.

As with the first book, the author includes a historical note which gives readers a better insight into the things happening at the time in which the book took place. I found this especially fascinating.

The ending….WOW!!! I thought Davies surprised me with the first book, but I definitely didn’t see this one coming. All I can say is….when is the next book coming?????

Christie’s Review

4 STARS

This is a quick, enjoyable, and romantic tale between two individuals who were born to be enemies!!!

Liliwen is a beautiful mermaid who also happens to be a princess. But, Liliwen is feeling like a captive. She has never ventured far, and her curiosity has been growing. Being the independent spirit she is, she decides to go on an adventure, not knowing it will have far-reaching consequences. As she sees a mass of land, she also meets Teaq, a general of the Black Isle’s armies and an enemy to her people. Yet, she doesn’t see him as an enemy…he is a beautiful sight to her.

Teaq has never seen a mermaid before, but he knows she is an enemy. His mind tells him to capture her, but his heart is telling him something else. For some strange reason, they have made a connection, one neither of their own kind will understand.

This first encounter is the beginning of a magical and beautiful love story. Both Liliwen and Teaq will face obstacles, and they both will have to sacrifice so much if they are going to find their own “happily ever after.”

If you like a little magic with romance and enjoy a quick read, grab this one today!

SYNOPSIS:

Abandoned by her people, a young woman was being sent to her doom.

Kelly was going to be a prisoner; a slave. At least that’s what she thought as she waited for the mysterious giants that lived on the Black Isles to claim her. A human sacrifice, once every eight years. That’s what it took to keep mankind safe from these savages.

The human would ensure the survival of his bloodline. Whether he liked it or not.

Broc’s reign as King of the Black Isles had lasted seven years already. That was a long time to go without a queen and therefore, an heir. He knew what he had to do; to claim the human offering and make her his own.

When they met, it changed everything. A glimmer of hope, even of love, in unexpected places. But life on the Black Isles was far from simple. And there were powerful secrets, yet to be uncovered, that could change everything yet again.

Claimed by the King is the first in Lorelei Moone’s brand new fantasy romance series, Shifters of Black Isle. Shifters, magic and relatable characters; set in a mysterious, distant land, where anything seems possible, and yet all its inhabitants hold dear could be destroyed in an instant.

Title: THE JACK

Author: MK Harkins

Genre: Paranormal Romance

About The Jack:

What matters more to Archer: saving the woman he loves but can never have, protecting humanity, or avoiding a prison sentence that would stretch for eternity?

Archer is a half breed, caught between two opposing heritages – the Jacks, a bloodthirsty race who kills for sport, and the Readers, a docile race trying to save humankind. Two years ago, he betrayed the Readers, though, in a last-minute change of heart, saved them from ultimate destruction. But now he’s all alone, wallowing in unrequited love.

Sadie is an Immortal Seer with a dangerous calling: she must hunt down and destroy the last of the vengeful Jacks. But her quirky humor and gentle spirit make her an unlikely fit for the job.

Archer is drawn to Sadie’s pure, kindhearted nature, rekindling hope he might not have to live a solitary life, but he has no idea the danger he’s in.

When fate forces the mortal enemies to work together, Sadie must determine which side Archer is on, how much of his charm is real, and if she should follow through with her directive: should she kill him or save him?

EXCERPT

“You can start by telling me why I’m handcuffed to this fence.” If I was going to die, I wouldn’t go out being polite. But why was he talking about trust and breaking things to me gently? Was he trying to trick me into feeling safe? Maybe so he could get all the information about what happened to his Jack friends in Arizona.

He turned to face me. “I need at least an hour to explain things to you. I didn’t want you taking off before I got the chance to tell you everything.”

“Go on.” Ugh. Might as well get this story over with.

“Okay. Well, um, I moved to Cannon Beach two years ago to guard you.” He stood still and waited for my reaction.

“Guard me?” Did he really expect me to believe that?

“Yes. From Archer.”

“And why would I need to be protected from Archer?”

“You know why.” He tilted his head and narrowed his eyes.

“No.” I wasn’t giving anything away.

He glanced at my handcuffs. “Just trust me.” His fingers raked through his hair. “I know. I know. I put you in handcuffs. Not great. But I had to keep you secured so you’d hear me out. I’m telling you the truth.”

“Again, handcuffs? You could have just knocked on my door and told me everything in my living room. Now that’s a novel idea. Isn’t that what sane people do?”

He sighed. “Yes, but what we’re dealing with isn’t sane. And I didn’t want Archer interrupting and trying to fill your head with lies. I know you met up with him in Portland. I just don’t know why.”

I glanced at my shackled hands. “And you think I’ll tell you?”

Ian puffed out a large breath and frowned. For a Jack serial killer, he didn’t seem to fit the part. And it wasn’t because of his off-the-charts good looks. He hadn’t killed me yet—score one. He seemed stressed and worried about my reactions—score two. He was incredibly attractive—score, wait, that didn’t count.

“Okay, why don’t you just spill it, and we can get this over with?” My arm ached.

“If you’ll agree to listen to the end and promise to stay. If you try to escape, I have other ways to stop you.” He glanced at his backpack.

“Well, aren’t you the little Eagle Scout all prepared to keep me in place.” Frustration and anger bubbled in my chest and spread throughout my body, making my skin hot and prickly. If I got free of this, I’d hit him over his crazy head with a rock and make my escape.

He eyed me and sat down about two feet away. “Archer is a Jack.”

I kept my expression bland. “And what’s a Jack? Is he a drug lord or something?” Might as well play innocent until I could figure out his angle.

He rubbed his face. “You asked about the handcuffs? This is a perfect example. Just come clean and we can get this over with.”

Meaning, he’ll kill me once he gets the info.

I let my eyes drift out over the stunning ocean vista. A clear day, with only tiny puffs of white clouds sprinkled over the horizon. The calm sound of seagulls overhead, along with the waves lapping on the shore, clashed with the turmoil brewing inside. Would this be my last day on earth?

“Stalling is just going to make things more difficult. We need to have this discussion.” He looked down at his hands. “I can’t believe I let Archer get to you before I could explain everything.”

“Archer didn’t get to me. I don’t know what you’re talking about.”

“Tell me this. Did he use his Jack charm on you? Do you consider him a friend, or maybe more?”
“First of all, that’s none of your business. Second, well, it’s the same as the first. Why in the world would you care if I’m friends with Archer?”

“Because you have to kill him.”

But nothing went as planned. Not even her tumultuous relationship with Beckham. And now she wonders if anything will ever be the same again.

As she finds herself in the midst of a losing rebellion, she and her trusted friends must flee from a city conquered by the vampire elite. With their plans blown to pieces and everything they knew and loved gone, their future hangs in the balance.

Words like unnatural and impure started the whispers.
From the very beginning, Ivy Blackwood was different. She
was only a child when she was accused of setting the fire, one she passively
watched engulf the small house she had called home. Her fingertips burned and
her hair singed. Some who watched her crossed themselves, convinced she was
soulless for she showed no emotion at all. Calm and dispassionate, even when
the screaming started that quickly turned to bellows of agony before dying into
nothing but the roaring of the fire.
She was locked away where she couldn’t bring harm to herself
or others. To all involved, they had protected the world from a monster, but
sometimes things are not what they seem.
