    exhilarating second chance romantic urban fantasy

    In Western Australia wizard-geologist Jackson Slater is doing field work. His former fiancée wizard Sara Temple is in San Cristobel, Venezuela working on a luxurious hotel deal when the illness struck turning good well balanced people into homicidal psychopaths. When her mentor whom she considers her father since her parents died becomes ill, a panicked Sara instinctively shouts telepathically to the only man she ever loved for help. Jack still loves Sara and hears her cry and teleports to her side instantly as if he is one of Pavlov's dogs.

    Based on the mounting evidence, the Wizard Council fears the serpentine Omnivatics are siphoning off the life-force and power of wizards. They also believe the pairing of Jack and Sara is the only hope to prevent the malevolence from returning to take over the world in their evil way. The chosen duo believes they are a poor matching, but agree to work together to save the world; perhaps as a by-product they can save their relationship too.

    This is an exhilarating second chance romantic urban fantasy in which the paranormal elements of wizardry and the Omnivatics seem genuine. The lead couple is a wonderful pairing of two people in love, but with polar opposite beliefs when it comes to magic as she never moved pass the death of her parents so she stopped being a practitioner; they are not a yin and yang fit, but together in unity prove that in their case their love makes for an inequality as 1 + 1 > 2. Like she did with her Night T-FLAC trilogy, Cherry Adair provides an engaging thriller starring two wizards in love; this time trying to save the world.

    Sara Temple and Jackson Slater shared a past that¿s full of pass

    Sara Temple and Jackson Slater shared a past that’s full of passion and heartbreak. They are thrown together again when some unknown force sets out to rid the world of its most powerful wizards. Jackson and Sara must work together to find the threat and save the world. You can’t help but root for these two to overcome the barriers that have kept them apart. Black Magic is not to be missed. Cherry Adair always does a wonderful job of bringing her characters to life. You will definitely want to add this one to your “to be read” list!

    Good read

    Usually can't put a Cherry Adair book down, but this one was not one of her best and a bit slow.

    I highly recommend this book, once I started reading I couldn't put it down.

    Ths is an excellant read. It moves fast and keeps you reading and not wanting to stop until you are finished with the book. Black Magic also leaves you wanting more. Cherry Adair is a great writer, her mysteries have just the right amount of romance too.

    SNAKEY ;)

    I usually don't read paranormal books but this one was great! There are snakes in abundance in this one though so if your afraid of snakes BEWARE!!! Sara and Jackson were great together and it was wonderful to see how they overcame their differences from their past relationship and came out even stronger!

    Disapointing

    I love Cherry Adair but this book almost read as if written by someone else. Took forever to get to the story plot and if you don't like snakes don't bother with this book. Not up to her usual level of writing.

    Not up to Adair's usual standards

    I love Cherry Adair's T-flac series (the non-wizard ones), but find her wizard books getting weaker and weaker with each one. This book was inconsistent and confusing. Adair should stick to the romantic thriller (love her new book 'Undertow') and leave the paranormal to those who do it better.

    I didn't feel like the characters had a lot of personality or depth. Plot had potential but fell short.

    I didn't feel like the the romance part of this book inspired me to want them to get back together again.

    A Great Paranormal Romance

    If you pick up this book and notice that several books also refer this to T-Flac #17 and are worried that you haven't read a single book in this series, don't worry. This book stands completely on it's own as a fast paced, paranormal romance book. In fact, I had not read any books in this series and did not feel as though I was missing a thing.

    In this book it has a mixture of good and bad points. Our main characters know each other and had already fallen in and out of love with each other. There was a huge falling out and we are quite honestly left hanging to find out what the problem was for half the book. That was quite frustrating and when we do find out, you can then understand how it came between the couple. Also, this book is quite predictable, but even though you know the answers before Sara and Jack, you don't know how it is going to play out. That part in the mystery as well as a lot of the hot scenes keeps you reading this story.

    I give this book 4 stars and recommend it to those who are wanting to read something in the paranormal romance genre. In fact, now I'm more curious as to what happens in this series by Cherry Adair.
