Title- Magick Reborn

When I traded up for a gorgeous Victorian house in the New Orleans French Quarter, I thought I was getting away from my toxic life. Sure, the house was old and run-down, but it was mine, and the Big Easy offered exactly the fresh start I wanted.

But then I met Remy; a mysterious, sexy witch with power, class, and charm to spare, and everything changed.

I had no idea my arrival in New Orleans had set into motion a chain of events threatening to throw everyone’s life into disarray, not just mine. Now, pushed into the middle of an ancient war between vampires and witches, I have to unravel the secrets of the house I just bought before the forces awakened by my very presence rise from their centuries-old slumber, hungry and eager to feed on everything they can find.

Starting with me.

Madison Collins just bought her first house and is thrilled to get settled in and forget the past she left behind in New York. She is ready to focus on her future and finishing her latest novel and New Orleans might just have the magic touch that will help her do so.

Things take a turn when the local coven leader takes a shine to Madison and invites her into the coven. Add the vivid dreams of a man she has never met and the feeling of being watched she can’t seem to shake, things are starting to look like they might not be as simple as Madison thought they would be in good ol’ New Orleans.

The Sweet-

I love the the books setting in New Orleans and the fact that it’s kinda set both in past New Orleans and the New Orleans of today. The author is able to capture the magic of the city onto the pages and it is clear that she did her homework when she started this novel. Not only is she able to capture the essence of the city and its beauty but also create magic of her own with a great plot and character development.

I instantly liked the main character Madison from page one. She seemed snarky, down to earth and the fact that she is a writer only made her more endearing to me. Through out the book she definitely grew on me making me not only like her but love her.

Another aspect of this book I found extremely enjoyable is the semi love triangle the author hints at between Madison, Remy and Jean Luc as well as the raging war between Vamps and witches to come! Overall in my opinion the author builds a great first book the a series which is sure to be action packed and full of vampire, magik and witches (oh my!) and is sure to keep readers like me coming back for more!

Rating- 5 out of 5 cupcakes! I would recommend to urban fantasy readers as well as fans of witches and vamps!

As you may know by now i am a huge fan of bourbon and seeing as this book takes place in New Orleans I could not resist a Bourbon cocktail. Bourbon is known as a very “manly” drink (pfft) so I decided to try to add some sweet notes to this cocktail.
