I confess I haven’t read the previous two books in this trilogy so I endered mid-struggle as it were. But the plot wasn’t too complicated so I did manage to figure out what was happening in this book, but I think to fully appreciate it, you would need to read Shadow Magic (Sisters of Magic, #1) and Echoes of Magic as Dangerous Magic shows previous characters in the series.Nigel is coming. Granted those words wouldn’t […]

Who doesn’t know a little something about the Templer knights? Most recently brought into the spot light by Dan Brown and other religious conspiracy books, now romance takes a bash out of them and in true romance style have turned them into an order of (semi chaste) immortal knights sworn to protect human kind by battling the denizens of hell. However, each time they kill a demon they take the taint of evil into their […]

Some parts I thought were really good, others seemed a little confused and under developed and some bits just annoyed the bloody hell out of me.Knox is one of the few healthy vampires around. During the civil war between humans and vampires the humans released a vaccine that renders human blood void inedible to vampires. But with Knox being a dhampire, half human half vampire, starvation doesn’t […]

What. A. Book. I really loved it. I thought the first book was great, but Double Cross builds on the foundations laid by Mind Games. Justine is still stuck as a minion to Packard, but is determined to find a way out, meanwhile a trio of murderers called the Dorks are targeting highcaps and shooting them in the street. Then there is the matter of all the highcap criminals locked up by Justine’s boyfriend the […]

This book has changed my perception of things forever. When I used to think of the name Howard, I would think: And don’t get me wrong, I love Howard from The Big Bang Theory he is my favourite geek, but do I have fantasize about him? No. However, when I now think of Howards I think: Which is waaay more satisfying. So thank you Jo Davis, you deserve three starts for sexing up all the […]
