    Great series starter!

    I’ve been a fan of this author for a few years. I haven’t read everything she’s written as not everything appeals to me. When I saw this new series, I jumped at the chance to read it as it is just what I love. I was not disappointed. Great writing, intriguing characters, and an interesting plot make up this series starter. I love the way thing progressed in the story, and I am really looking forward to seeing more with the formation of something that happened at the end. And, speaking of the end, it threw me a little with a lot of romance (I don’t want to spoil the ending so I can’t say much) when I felt the book was more about the murders and the world. That’s not a bad thing, just a little confusing as the rest of the book didn’t focus so much on it. I do want to learn more about Kayla’s family and what happens now with everything that happens. I am really looking forward to more. Check it out if you like urban fantasy. Highly recommend, and I received a complimentary copy which I voluntarily reviewed.

    I liked it.

    I received a free copy of THE WITCHKIN MURDERS (Magicfall: Book 1) by Diana Pharaoh Francis in exchange for an honest review. Magicfall brought the return of magic to the world and a war between the magical witchkin and the humans. The war is now over, and the magical and nonmagical people reside uneasily together in this strange new post-apocalyptic world. Prejudice is rampant, and police assistance is only available to the nonmagical. Kayla was a police detective before Magicfall; afterward, she had to quit because she was affected by magic and would no longer be considered human. For four years, Kayla avoided law enforcement and trouble by keeping mostly to herself and by scavenging for now-scarce commodities in areas now consumed by wild magic. However, trouble and police involvement crash down on Kayla when she stumbles over a black magic sacrifice and can’t keep herself from calling Ray, her former partner. As Kayla and Ray work together to solve one mystery, they learn Portland will soon be destroyed if they can’t stop the perpetrator. Since the world’s at risk, can Kayla and Ray put the past behind them, share their secrets, and work together again? This was a pretty good story. I’d classify this as an urban fantasy romance. Though there isn’t any actual sex in the book, there are a lot of fantasies and some explicit discussion of body parts affected by lust. Though my personal preference would be that the fantasies and such just be acknowledged and not detailed, that is my own taste. I would recommend this book to fans of urban fantasy law enforcement investigations, to fans of romance with a supernatural theme, and to fans of Diana Pharaoh Francis. #TheWitchkinMurders #NetGalley

    5 Witchkin Stars

    The world exploded with wild magic and the supernatural world declared war on humans and Kayla life went straight to hell. She used to be a detective and now she’s witchkin and a scavenger trying to hide her secret. But any chance she had of escaping her past and keeping her secret disappears when she discovers a murder scene that screams whit signs of black magic ritual. She has to work with her old partner who hates her for abandoning the department and if she screws this up, Portland will be wiped out. This new urban fantasy screams suspense and magic and while most of the story doesn’t have a lot of romance per say, it does hint at the possibility of a romantic feelings between Kayla and old partner Ray. The chemistry burns hot and heavy throughout the story as they clash, sending sparks flying in every direction. The relationship is chock full of emotional upheaval due to secrets that stem from what happened when magic fell. These two strong, bold characters along with strong supportive characters easily draw readers into their story as they struggle to come to terms with working together again and with how they really feel. Readers can’t stop reading very fast paced and suspenseful story that is full of stunning twists that change everything in this post-apocalyptic world full of wild magic and monsters where the divide between humans and supernaturals is boiling over the top. Unique elements and a wonderfully descriptive futuristic setting makes it easy for readers to imagine so they really can’t help but this energetic and stunning read.

    Mystery, murder and mayhem

    The Witchkin Murders was all over the place for me. I really did love it at times but then it kind of dragged on and on. Kayla was a police detective when the magicfall happened. She quit her job and disappeared from her partner's life. But now she needs him when she discovers murders in the park. Ray is angry with Kayla for leaving without a trace but he was pretty mean to her when she said she needed to go. He still has no idea what caused Kayla to quit the force but he sure isn't going to let her get away this time without an explanation. Mystery, murder and mayhem grab Kayla and Ray in its grip and don't let go for the entire ride. Overall this was a great read and I would of given it a 4 and here comes the but... but I can't overlook an extremely long and convoluted ending and a few plot directions that led to nothing making it 3.5. I received this ARC copy of The Witchkin Murders from BelleBooks, Inc - Bell Bridge Books. This is my honest and voluntary review.
