    A wonderful read in an unexpected place

    Deep Magic is a fantasy-romance based in a tiny town in Wales, a location that most do not associate with the word exotic, until the first unpronounceable name pops up on the page. And an immensely apt setting it was, too. Coming from a small town myself, everything about the interactions between the ironic fish-out-of-water Olly and the townspeople struck straight home for me. The setting was absolutely captivating and now Wales is on my bucket list for travel destinations. I could not put Deep Magic down, outside of the times where I buried my Kindle under a mountain of laundry because I feared for the results of a fight or sudden impulse of the main couple. I think this is the current paramount to Gillian St. Kevern writing and I’m eager to jump into the deep end of this series. The characters were interactive and enjoyable to follow. Relationships of every type drive the story (while a romantic relationship stands center, for me it was the familial connections that stole the spotlight). This is much tamer than some of her earlier stuff, but for the better I think. It ranges from virginal to romantic, sweet to powerful, and even a sprinkling of cross-dressing. While five stars for me is a book that holds me a captive audience, there are some points that could use some polishing. The plot kind of wanders into interesting corners sometimes for a while. As it is an enjoyable time in those nooks and crannies, they did feel a bit disconnected from the driving force. There was also always a bit of vagueness around the beings that were the morgens. Perhaps it is my unfamiliarity with the subject, or that they are not nearly as mainstream as their standard siren cousins, but I could never really get a good idea of what kind of creature they were, what their limitations were, their advantages, disadvantages, defining features, etc. But as it is now, I don’t really know what makes one morgen special or different from the other. I couldn’t help but compare and equate this to Kevern’s earlier Thorns and Fangs. When boiled down: I think this is exactly the kind of crafting that I wanted from her earlier novel. I couldn't wait for Morgen I didn't!

    Better than I expected

    Was a very good book. Was well written. I thought it would be too much about sexual activity and no real plot, but the plot was well thought-out and interesting. Would definitely recommend.
