by Matthew Thrush and Amanda Fox
An uncommon magic. A sexy supernatural stalker. A disastrous curse.
The last thing McKenna Sawyer needs in her life is a stalker, even if he’s drop-dead gorgeous. She already has finals to worry about, not to mention what she’s going to do with her life once she officially graduates college. Being distracted is not an option.
Until she’s almost kidnapped and her stalker saves her.
Soon, McKenna is confronted with an earth-shattering realization: the supernatural exist, and there’s a war between them. And thanks to some curse her direct ancestor—a witch—placed on both the fae and the vampires, McKenna is at the heart of it.
Now McKenna must travel to the Fae world with her stalker—the vampire Aiden—to break the curse. But he’s holding something back, something that could ruin the fragile trust the two have built up thus far, and, McKenna can’t help but wonder if she’s being led into a trap with deadly consequences.
With the vivid supernatural magic of True Blood and the dark, forbidden romance of Karen Marie Moning’s Fever series, Origins of Magic is your newest urban fantasy romance addiction.
Origins of Magic
Fae Origins is book one in a new and enjoyable YA saga. I'm not 100% sure if this is meant to be YA, but it sure read like it most of the time. I tend to like I read dark and hard-hitting. This one does make you feel like it could get to that level but certainly not with book one.
The main characters were fine as a pair, the back and forth banter at times was funny. Their chemistry was believable, and I did enjoy them, but not as much as I would have liked. Again, maybe just some more edgy pages were needed, a tad more of the dark and delicious. The urban fantasy world can be so plain at times, and sure I love a nice scoop of vanilla, BUT I want some tasty ass toppings all over that mother! No toppings on this one, just vanilla.
As for the writing itself, it was fun, and you can tell a whole world is being built. No major misspellings or issues. The flow moved the story along. Being under 300 pages helped. I just think it was not an exact fit for me overall. I finished the story and took the parts I did like with me. Read other reviews, see what more people are saying.
