Review: Double Alchemy by Susan MacNicol

Double Alchemy by Susan MacNicol

Powerful yet tormented modern warlock Quinn Fairmont must initiate the silver-eyed Cade Mairston into the world of witchfinders, Withinners, and what can happen when two men fall truly, madly, deeply in love.


In modern London there lurks a warlock, Quinn Fairmont. Dangerous, powerful, tortured, sharing his body with the soul of an ancient Welsh sorcerer, Quinn is never alone—and never wholly himself. He fights against all those who would exploit his kind. He takes pleasure where he can find it.

In the forest of Hampstead Heath, Quinn’s hometown, Cade Mairston appears to him like a waking dream. Lithe, lean and silver-eyed, he evokes feelings in Quinn unlike any other: lust with true affection, immediate and shocking. Cade is clearly more than he seems. And yet, if a man of the world, Cade is innocent. He knows nothing of warlocks, witchfinders or Withinners. He knows nothing of what he is, what he might be, or what he might feel. For him, the story is just beginning. Magyck, peril and passion await. More awaits in book two…

Paranormal isn’t usually my thing but maybe it should be because this story blew me away. The magyck was exciting, the romance hot and the world in this story is amazing. There are warlocks and withinners and other fantastic creatures, plus intrigue. One thing I love is that this story takes place in modern day London but there’s this other world we muggles (for lack of a better term) aren’t privy to, like a steamy, adult Diagon Alley, only better. Cade and Quinn’s story is suspenseful and sweet but this one does end on a cliffhanger and I can’t wait to read the conclusion. I received a copy of Double Alchemy from the author in exchange for an honest review.
