In between all the action and world saving, the two, Garran and Hannah, create a lot of steam. Not that I'm complaining, mind you, because it wasn't meaningless sex, but something much deeper, even from the beginning. And Garran.. Oh my! Imagine this: black leather pants and boots, a long wicked sword, and chest straps on a very tall and fit man, who happens to have a sexy accent and, oh yeah, did I mention that he is the King of the Dark Elves? Those piercing silver eyes *Shivers*...WOW! He's protective, maybe a bit arrogant at times, but he's also very compassionate with her, almost enough to make you tear up, or at least sigh in pleasure.
Really, for a wonderful combination of a well written paranormal world, filled with action and various creatures, and a very sexy, very passionate love story, Cheyenne McCray is the author to check out! It's better if you read the series in order, but you could probably read them out of order and she still catches you up enough that you are lost. But believe me-- after you read one, you'll be dying to read the next one! I've loved the characters and story from book one, and after each one, I find myself having to choose *or at least try to* which hero is my favorite...It's hard, since all of the main men she puts in the story are irresistible! And if you enjoy these books, like I have, you may also want to check out her other books, including her romantic suspense series starting with Chosen Prey *Loved!*, and her erotica paranormal books *Which I have not read..yet*. You won't be disappointed!
4.5/5 stars! A brilliant combination of lust, love, and action, to name a few, mixed and delivered in a perfect package that will leave you wanting more!
When Hannah sees Garran, however, she's instantly attracted. But can she trust him to help them in their quest to destroy Ceithlenn?
Garran is instantly attracted to the D'Anu witch who comes seeking help. He can see, though, that she won't be easy to win over. After consulting with the Great Guardian, he agrees to help the witches in their battle against evil. There is only one stipulation. Hannah must stay with him at all times.
Hannah agrees and soon finds herself attracted to King Garran. When they travel to San Francisco she discovers he has a special gift, which can help them destroy demons. What Hannah and the others don't know, however, is the gift could cost Garran his life, even as it helps them win the battle.
Shadow Magic is a fantastic installment in the Magic series. Ms. McCray weaves a magical spell over her readers, transporting them to a realm where danger and magic mix to create book that will hold the reader spellbound.
I loved Hannah and her headstrong ways. Her growing love for Garran was delightful to watch. Seeing her go through personal issues, too, with the Dragons who are her totems tugged at my heartstrings.
I could easily see why Hannah would fall for sexy Garran, who is both a fantastic lover and a fearless leader of the Dark Elves. His desire to do what is right in battle, and for his people, endeared him to me.
Ms. McCray's Magic series gets better with each book. Shadow Magic is a keeper, and a book that I will reread, along with the rest of the series.

At the meeting Hannah feels nervous around Garren as they are attracted to one another. However, they ignore their desires and discuss the situation. Garren makes it clear he will do what is right for his people. After escorting Hannah on a tour of the Dark Elves realm, he explains they opened the door to Underworld to let in the light, but erred instead allowing the Fomorii Demons and Ceithlenn to escape; his beloved brother died in the fight to stop them.
In San Francisco, Ceithlenn is weak from her fighting with the witches, warriors, and cops, but most of her anger is at Darkwolf who has stolen her spouse Balor's Eye. She also fears for her husband as she has not found him and knows he must be very weak and near death. Soon all the parties will converge in a key showdown.
This series is already one the best romantic urban fantasies and SHADOW MAGIC may be the best book to date. The lead couple is a great pairing who the audience will like while the paranormal species all seem genuine as does the attacks in San Francisco. Though there are obviously previous novels in this series and the future is somewhat established, this excellent tale can stand alone as Cheyenne McCray affirms she is a great fantasist.
