    5 Magic PNR seriesI enjoy this author s books and Dark Magic was enjoyable and well written.I quit reading early on, not because of the writing, but because magic and witches and two themes that just don t grab my interest.I love the winged warriors.

    As captain of San Francisco s elite Paranormal Special Forces unit, Jake Macgregor s life is now dedicated to saving his city from complete annihilation by the powerful forces of evil which have been attacking San Francisco Though allied with magical beings from Otherworld to defeat the dark magic creatures which threaten the safety of our world, as the leader of the PSF, Jake takes on the most responsibility With so much going on and the fate of San Francisco looking increasingly grim, the la As captain of San Francisco s elite Paranormal Special Forces unit, Jake Macgregor s life is now dedicated to saving his city from complete annihilation by the powerful forces of evil which have been attacking San Francisco Though allied with magical beings from Otherworld to defeat the dark magic creatures which threaten the safety of our world, as the leader of the PSF, Jake takes on the most responsibility With so much going on and the fate of San Francisco looking increasingly grim, the last thing Jake needs is to be distracted Even so, Jake finds himselfanddrawn to Cassia, a mysterious beauty whose secrets he longs to discover Cassia of the gray D Anu witch coven is not all that she seems Through her birthright she will soon possess magical powers far beyond anything she has ever known But Cassia soon finds that power comes with a price She will have power almost without equal, but she can never have Jake, the man she longs for Yet when Jake s life is threatened, Cassia cannot help but interfere to save him, setting off a chain of events that could either lead to disaster or to a love beyond her wildest dreams Prepare yourselves ladies and gentlemen, because Cheyenne McCray has delivered another rip roaring, passionate adventure Dark Magic is the final and, in my opinion best, book in Ms McCray s fantastic Magic series and it will keep you on the edge of your seat from first to last As an avid fan of the series, I have been waiting impatiently for Dark Magic Ms McCray pulls out all the stops in the battle of good versus evil, with heart pounding action sequences that kept me reading into the late hours of the night In Dark Magic we get to see all the species of Otherworld as the final battles take place All of our favorite characters are back from the previous Magic stories, plus new Otherworld beings arrive to fight the forces of Darkwolf and his army I ll forgo the details to avoid giving any spoilers, but suffice it to say I could not put this book down At the center of the action are Jake and Cassia While I was eager to see how the war would turn out, it s the romance between Jake and Cassia that is the center of the story and integral to the outcome of the battle Their love story was both incredibly sexy and heartwarmingly tender As much as the action kept me in suspense, so to did the romance Ms McCray kept me wondering how it would work out for Cassia and Jake and I was rooting for the two of them to find happiness Cassia I have found an intriguing character from the start She has been likeable but mysterious for the majority of the series and it is a delight to finally learn all her secrets After Shadow Magic, I wasn t sure anyone could pass up Hannah as my favorite heroine in the series, but Cassia did She has a purity of heart and a strength of character that drew me to her and I was avidly turning the pages of the book, desperate for Cassia to find happiness with Jake As for the Jake Macgregor, the hero of the tale I think by the mere mention of his name the temperature just went up in the room The former Marine turned captain of the Paranormal Special Forces team defines what it means to be a strong and sexy hero Jake is sexy, self sacrificing, caring, strong, and true to himself He gives everything that he is to Cassia and those endangered by the forces of evil he is fighting against Simply put, you can t find a hero better than Jake I was also incredibly impressed with Ms McCray s attention to the development Darkwolf and Elizabeth Junga, the villains of this series It has been fascinating to watch them from Forbidden Magic to this story I was surprised to find myself invested in what was happening to these two and the fact that I had moments of sympathy for the evildoers of the Magic series is a testament to Ms McCray s skill as a writer Though Dark Magic is the final book in the series, Ms McCray gives enough detail so that new readers will be able to follow along Though technically the book stands alone, I would encourage reading the other books first so as to have the emotional investment in the outcome of the story As sad as I am to see the Magic series end, in Dark Magic Ms McCray has delivered an amazing story that is sure to leave fans of the seriesthan satisfied Simply Magic

    Fantastic Conclusion to a Phenomenal Adult Fae Series , This was the last installment to Cheyenne s Magic Series I enjoyed this installment, even though it was somewhat predictable This story focuses on Cassia, the D Anu witch, whose past has been a mystery from the beginning Cassia, Jake McGregor and the rest of his special forces unit, the Drows, Tuatha D Danann Warriors, Mystwalkers, earth bound fae, the rest of the D Anu coven and a last minute addition to the Alliance, The Light Elves, a Fantastic Conclusion to a Phenomenal Adult Fae Series , This was the last installment to Cheyenne s Magic Series I enjoyed this installment, even though it was somewhat predictable This story focuses on Cassia, the D Anu witch, whose past has been a mystery from the beginning Cassia, Jake McGregor and the rest of his special forces unit, the Drows, Tuatha D Danann Warriors, Mystwalkers, earth bound fae, the rest of the D Anu coven and a last minute addition to the Alliance, The Light Elves, all work together to try to defeat Darkwolf who has successfully robbed and killed Ceithlenn and Balor of their magic and is now a powerful god warlock There was plenty of action, suspense, intrigue and of course magic This series was a great adult dark paranormal romance fantasy series, that help curb my cravings to read books geared for adults that involve the fae All in all I will miss the series but I m glad I gave it a chance I highly recommend this series to dark urban fantasy readers with plenty of patience to skip through the many unnecessary sex scenes and overly emotional parts If you don t mind sifting through those parts, the plot is fantastically creative.I also recommend Darkfever Fever Series, Book 1 Storm Born Dark Swan, Book 1 Dead Witch Walking The Hollows, Book 1 Witch Fire Elemental Witches, Book 1 Witchling Sisters of the Moon, Book 1

    This is a sensational finish to this wonderful series Its full of action, plenty of twists and turns in the story and like the others in the series has some seriously hot sexy situations Jake and Cassia s story is brilliant, it is so strong and passionate but it needs to be solid to over come the many obstacles in their way Breath taking writing as always, which keeps you on the edge of your seat but at times it also gets panty wetting MUST READ


  9. Kelly Russell Kelly Russell says:

    Wow, what a great end to a really enjoyable series The characters were all very likable, strong women and somewhat bossy to begin with men, trying to p protect them, but in the reason wins out lots of action, suspense, drama, strong sex scenes and well a very enjoyable readediting as I said before was painful, my only complaint.
