Just in time for Halloween! Two novelettes about men with magic—and the occasional demon.
“Blood Magic and the Mini Zombie Apocalypse”
Griff has a bad habit of getting talked into black magic he shouldn’t be using—but this time it’s even worse. His ex is bent on revenge in the form of a mini zombie apocalypse, and the only person who can help Griff is a hottie white magic practitioner named Blythe. The catch: one of Griff’s spells gone wrong left Blythe with a haunted apartment a year ago, and Blythe isn’t over it.
Still, Blythe agrees to work with Griff. As they unravel the ugly blood, sex, and death magic, they also discover surprising things about each other. Hopefully, it’s enough for the ultimate trust they’ll need to defeat a lot of zombies and a crazed witch, or their town will end up covered in corpses.
Six years ago, Thackeray agreed to let a demon haunt him in exchange for help hunting other demons. It’s a lonely life, but worth it to be the best demon hunter possible — to save families from the kind of evil that ruined his own childhood.
This Hallowe’en, Thackeray’s dealing with an upstart coven. A powerful, pretty witch named Matt defects to help Thackeray stop their scheme to invite god-knows-what from the other side.
Demons are much easier to fight than the urges Matt’s flirting inspires. But Thackeray can’t hook up with a demon watching over his shoulder… can he? (less)
I was intrigued by this pair of stories as I love paranormal and magic. They were both easy, sexy reads that highly entertained me.
Blood Magic and the Mini Zombie Apocalypse
I really enjoyed this! It was short but packed full of action. I liked that Griffon was unabashedly Bi and that it wasn’t an issue. I liked the magic and the zombies. I would have liked more to the end though. It leaves some unfinished business but in some ways it fits the tone of the book.
This little gem had witches, magic, demons, demon hunters, and lots of UST. I liked Thackeray and his no-nonsense approach to dealing with evil doers. Matt is cute but powerful and together they make things work. I really liked the ending and how Matt solves Thackeray’s problem.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
