Double Alchemy – Climax by Susan Mac Nicol: Blog Tour Review and Giveaway

If you’ve loved Susan Mac Nicol’s Double Alchemy as much as I have, then you’ll be pleased to find out book two of this series is just as delightful. A page turner, and a complete mouth watering experience, that’s what I thought of Double Alchemy – Climax. Yes, I know I rant and rave each time one of her books is out, but I just can’t help it. She just keeps enthralling me further with each book.


Powerful modern warlock Quinn Fairmont found ecstasy with the silver-eyed and not-quite-human Cade Mairston, but to know true happiness the pair must best both the shadow of a long-ago lover and an ancient enemy who seeks to destroy love, light and all they hold dear. A BLINDING LIGHT It begins with a Book of Shadows discovered by a London coven. The grimoire is as dangerous as it is rare, which is why it evokes modern-day warlock Quinn Fairmont’s desire. He collects objects of great power and beauty—like his lover, Cade Mairston. Against all odds he and Cade found each other, but their perils have just begun. First is the ex-lover who once held Quinn in thrall. And, someone has been killing warlocks. Could it be one of his own kind? There are those too who would challenge Quinn’s power in their quest to overthrow him as Grand Master. Or is the danger something darker, something invoked inadvertently, rising from the shadows, building from the very inside of a man until it brings an end with a quick flash of light? Of the truth, the surface has only been scratched. Now Quinn and Cade must go deeper and find both answers and an end. They must learn what lurks in the hearts of men…and whether it seeks to love or destroy.

My thoughts

Double_Alchemy_Climax_3d_Book1This is a mystery/thriller type of read, so I can’t get that much into the action or the plot line, you will have to experience that for yourselves. I can tell you it just sweeps you right in from the first few pages and it has everything to make it perfect: Quinn and his Withinner, Cade and his fae descent, the powerful attraction between the powerful warlock and his now boyfriend, suspicious deaths, witches out of their league, a powerful grimoire, a sociopath warlock hunter still on the loose and enough intrigue to keep you breathless.

I have to say again how totally taken with Quinn I am. He’s gorgeous, powerful, has a very interesting past and he’s flawed enough to just make him sinfully delicious. That does not mean I don’t love Cade, just that I’d throw myself at it like a moth in love with the infamous light bulb. This book is fast paced and right up my alley, I admit that. If there’s magic and anything supernatural, I’m keen on exploring the story right from the start. But this is dark and mysterious enough to just keep you hooked till the end.

I strongly recommend you grab your copy today!
