I've been blogging just a short time but I've been an avid reader for all my life. My preferred genres are romance, Fantasy, teens/YA and just recently Erotica. But I would like to branch out so all is welcome.

Smashwords book reviews by Donna Newman
- Illicit Magic (Book 1, Stella Mayweather Series)
on Aug. 16, 2011
Stella is pretty much a loner, not by choice but because it seems like accidents seem to happen around her and she doesn't know why. I really loved how Stella progressed in this book from a quiet, hide yourself in the corner kind of girl to finding confidence in herself at the end.
What I loved about this story-line it kept me guessing, here I thought it was going one way and it ended up in a direction I didn't expect at all. Usually the bad guy is brought in and pretty much you know when and what is going to happen but this one really through me for a loop. My eyes bugged and I literally said out loud well I didn't see that one coming.
I ought to learn nothing is cut in dry with stories because I did want her to be with one of the male characters but I quickly changed my mind as soon as the other one was introduced. I loved Marc. but at times I thought boy where was his anger coming from , we find out later but I won't say because it would give it away. And Evan, well I can't say too much there other than I love him, and that he gave Stella the confidence she needed to learn her craft.
There was a couple questions left unanswered but I think mainly in my own mind, because the story wrapped up rather neatly but left me wanting to read the next book which was just released, Unruly Magic.
So if you love witches with a bit of romance and a lot of action this book is for you.
