The quote says it all. Forbidden Magic by Cheyenne McCray is a great read. The main heroine definitely reminded me of Pheobe (from Charmed) and Rachel Morgan (Kim Harrison) – she wants to protect humanity from evil and she doesn’t care if she has to bend the rules a little. Add on top of that some steamy erotica with an equally gorgeous Fae warrior and you’re going to get sucked in at some point.
Even with the erotica, the plot didn’t suffer. The story moved along and new plot twists kept popping up. We’re introduced to the story by both sides, and I have to admit, I love the way McCray developed her villains. She doesn’t take the classic approach with them; they have personalities and they don’t agree with the way others view them. They’re not evil, they are just living life the way there were meant to.
For those who are cautious due to the erotica…if you can read Laurell K Hamilton, then you’ll be fine with this book. I can’t say what the other novels are like, but I’m going to find out.
