Overview

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.

THE WORLD IN SHADOW

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.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
06/15/2014
Cade doesn't know he's a Sprite until he meets Quinn, the UK's Grand Master Warlock. Cade's fey blood creates an irresistible attraction between the two men, and what starts as a lustful affair evolves into a meaningful relationship. Just as the lovers begin to get comfortable with each other, De Vere, an old enemy and warlock whom Quinn thought he had killed, reemerges and uses every available path to destroy Quinn. VERDICT Mac Nichol has created a complex and fully realized fantasy world. Quinn is the star of this novel, taking out the bad guy and learning how to trust.

    As a huge fan of Susan Mac Nicol I feel slightly traitorous only

    As a huge fan of Susan Mac Nicol I feel slightly traitorous only giving Double Alchemy a four heart rating, but I found this wasn't a book I wanted to read immediately from cover to cover. I felt the story dragged in places; on several occasions I believed I had reached the end, only to find out I still had chapters left.
    Despite this there are many positives to write about; the paranormal plot is intriguing, especially the way Susan Mac Nicol weaves the fantastical world of Quinn with Cade's modern London. The line between good and evil is blurred in the story as many characters are duplicitous, including the two protagonists. Quinn's relationship with his Witthiner is an interesting one and whilst it affords him more power as a Warlock, it impacts directly on his romance with Cade, creating an uncomfortable love triangle.
    Cade's alternative identity is unknown to him until he meets Quinn and even then his true strength is withheld.  Whether because of his upbringing, or magic, Quinn is controlling and manipulates Cade under the pretence of this being for protection. I hope that in the sequel the reader sees Cade acknowledge his power and assume a more equal role in the relationship.
    Double Alchemy is the first paranormal m/m romance I have read and I think that Susan Mac Nicol finds the perfect balance between the passion that ignites Quinn and Cade's love and the battles fought amongst the Warlocks.  The plot is intricate but this means the reader is entertained by its various twists and turns. I am pleased that I now have the opportunity to read Climax.
    I received this as a complimentary review copy, but this has had no influence on my opinion.
