Blood Magic

Blood Magic by Jennifer Lyon is the first book in her Wing Slayer Hunters series. From the back cover.~


In the days when powerful witches used their magic to shield humanity from demons, their allies and guardians were a group of men gifted with preternatural abilities of their own-the witch guardians. But when a band of witches traded their humanity for demonic powers, the ancient bond was broken and the guardians became the hunters.

Darcy MacAlister knows nothing of demons or magic. But this beautiful young woman is about to discover the truth about her past…and her future. For she is a witch-not just any witch, but the key to breaking the curse that has plagued witches and the men who hunt them. For if a hunter kills an innocent witch by mistake, the price is no less than a piece of his soul.

Axel Locke, gorgeous leader of the Wing Slayer Hunters, has sworn never to shed the blood of the earth witches who have resisted the temptation of demonic power. But when his sister is cursed by a demon witch, he discovers that Darcy MacAlister may hold the cure-if she can master her newfound powers in time. When the chase begins and Axel and Darcy come face-to-face, this hunter must weigh his soul against his honor-and against his heart.

Blood Magic was wonderful! I’ve really gotten into all types of paranormal books over the last few years and after reading many fabulous reviews on blogs I visit on a regular basis, I decided to move Blood Magic up in my TBR pile. And I’m so glad I did! I loved Blood Magic so much that as soon as I finished reading it I immediately started reading the 2nd book in the series, Soul Magic.

I really liked the chemistry between Axel and Darcy and enjoy watching them grow together as the book progressed. However, many of my favorite characters were the supporting characters. I especially can’t wait to read Key’s book (hopefully) in the future. Lyon blends a bit of magic, action and adventure, and super hot romance to keep the reader totally engrossed. I highly recommend Blood Magic to anyone who enjoys reading amazing stories. I've already read Soul Magic, and hope to get my post up about it this week.

***Disclaimer*** I purchased this book myself.

I LOVED this book! Axel still curls my toes when I think about him and Darcy is just so much fun. I hate the word "spunky" but she is!

I'm so glad you are enjoying the series, too, Liza. While Phoenix is my favorite, I have to admit to a certain fondness for Key, too. :D

Axel is pretty hot, as are the other Hunters. I totally agree that you could describe Darcy as "spunky" and it is a perfect fit.

I love Phoenix too, but there is just something about Key.
