Powerful modern warlock Quinn Fairmont found ecstasy with the silver-eyed and not-quite-human Cade Mairston, but to know true happiness the pair must best both the shadow of a long-ago lover and an ancient enemy who seeks to destroy love, light and all they hold dear. A BLINDING LIGHT It begins with a Book of Shadows discovered by a London coven. The grimoire is as dangerous as it is rare, which is why it evokes modern-day warlock Quinn Fairmont’s desire. He collects objects of great power and beauty—like his lover, Cade Mairston. Against all odds he and Cade found each other, but their perils have just begun. First is the ex-lover who once held Quinn in thrall. And, someone has been killing warlocks. Could it be one of his own kind? There are those too who would challenge Quinn’s power in their quest to overthrow him as Grand Master. Or is the danger something darker, something invoked inadvertently, rising from the shadows, building from the very inside of a man until it brings an end with a quick flash of light? Of the truth, the surface has only been scratched. Now Quinn and Cade must go deeper and find both answers and an end. They must learn what lurks in the hearts of men…and whether it seeks to love or destroy.
Powerful artifacts, magic, struggles for power, warlocks and witches fighting for survival, and in the middle of all this, there’s a love story, a relationship between two men of different worlds. I always love stories that show what the happily ever after actually entails. Cade and Quinn’s love for each other is put to the test, as all real relationships are. it is of course far more complicated when you’re dealing with secrets, mysteries, powerful beings and age old magic.
Double Alchemy – Climax is everything you might dream of in a book – a mystery, a thriller, a fantasy and paranormal story, a love affair of the hottest and finest, as only Susan Mac Nicol can write, and a most definite page turner. It was a bit like a mix of Christmas and my birthday because it had fantasy and mystery AND two hot men who are completely in love and… did I say hot?
I have read quite a few Susan Mac Nicol books and with every new one, I have a new favorite. I hope she keeps them coming!
