Review: Blood Magic by Jennifer Lyon

Blood Magic is the first book in the Wing Slayer Hunter series by Jennifer Lyon and a Paranormal Romance by Ballantine Books.

Book Blurb:


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 power, 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.

Darcy MacAlister has no idea that she is a witch - she doesn't even know that witches exist.  Imagine her surprise when she hears a voice telling her to 'run' and the next thing she knows, two very big, very determined men are trying to kill her.

Axel Locke is the leader of the Wing Slayer Hunters and it is his mission and the mission of his brothers in arms, to protect the earth witches from the demon witches and the Rogue Slayers who are trying to kill them.

Long ago the Wing Slayer Hunters and the earth witches worked in harmony - but a curse from the demon witches put a stop to all of that - and now the earth witches are in hiding, and the Wing Slayer Hunters are trying to keep themselves from going rogue.

Axel and Darcy must work together to help Axel's sister who has been cursed by a demon witch - and they don't have much time.  Darcy is trying her best - but she has only just learned that she is a witch - and she has no idea how to control her power.

I really enjoyed Blood Magic.

Axel is 100% Alpha Male.  :)  Darcy, though scared out of her mind - doesn't take any crap from Axel.  They butt heads to begin with - and the tension is thick - but in the end - they are great together.

I give Blood Magic 5 out of 5 stars.
