I love the book ,but I wish it was longer and it left the readers hanging not knowing what's going to happen to Ram and the Angel.

Wow, how does one try to put into words enough emotion to describe the rollercoaster ride that is Forbidden Magic? First, there is Ram Virtos, and just saying his name I get goose bumps! This is one Alpha Male who is always in control and dominant in all things. His bloodlust is riding him hard, his Phoenix is awakening causing all sorts of problems for him, and his soul mirror has turned tail and run from him. Ram knows that if he doesn’t find his soul mirror, he will succumb to the bloodlust and go up in flames. Talk about a bad day, he has it in spades. But…those are not his only issues. Ram really doesn’t want his soul mirror at all; he wants Ginny Stone, younger sister to the newest Wing Slayer Hunter, Eli. Ram is continuously fighting his attraction to her because he feels that she deserves better than him. He believes he is too old, too damaged, and has done too many dark things to his soul to be worthy of her. Then we have Ginny. She has wanted Ram from the first time they met and alternately flips between seducing him to her bed and keeping him at a distance. Her reasons for this have to do with the fact that she is a Halfling and her father is a very powerful being. She has to complete a series of tasks that he has set for her, and has done all but the final two, the emotions of love and heartbreak. Ginny knows that even if she and Ram were to be together (love), he could never truly be hers because he had already found his soul mirror (heartbreak); the final tasks completed, she would be pulled from this world. Now, Ginny’s day turns really bad because if she doesn’t do what her father says, he will rip her brother Eli’s soul from him. Rock and a hard place anyone? How Ram and Ginny come together is such an emotionally charged journey, one that will leave you at the edge of your seat and breathless. I have to say that I didn’t even realize I had gotten to the end and when I turned the page, expecting more, well, there wasn’t. I sat there just looking at my Kindle screaming, “No way!” But fear not, this is only the beginning of their story and will, indeed, be continued! Ms. Lyon has written an incredibly powerful story in this novella. Words such as sultry, steamy, sexy, nail biting twists and turns and cliff hanger make this a must read for all, and a great addition to the Wing Slayer books. Ram and Ginny’s story is compelling, and I for one, am so very grateful that Jennifer is continuing this series independently!

This novella carries on the story of the Wing Slayer Hunters perfectly. If you haven't read her other books, that's ok. Reading this one will make you want to go back and read her other books. Can't wait for the next book to come out!!!!!

Witches, hunters and a curse! What more can you ask for? Fall under the spell of these exceptional men and the women who save them. Each volume adds a new dimension to the series. Follow Axel, Sutton, Phoenix, Ram and the rest of the Wing Slayer Hunters as they seek to break a thirty year old curse by finding the women (witches) who help them break the soul-destroying cycle. It's riveting and sexy and easy to become a fan of these over-the-top men and the witches they love.

What do you do when the one person who can save you, runs from you? But the one person you want, the one that is always there, the one willing to do anything and everything for you just might be the only one to really save you? This is the very problem the Ram finds himself in, in Forbidden Magic. His soul mirror witch, has deserted him, left him to deal with the curse and his demons on his own. Ram feels the pull to the one witch that can save him and his soul, but his heart has other plans. Ram’s heart belongs to someone he can never have. Ginny knows that it is just a matter of time before she gives in to her father’s demands. But she is not in any hurry. Although being around Ram is very tempting for her to break her own rules. When Ginny’s father blackmails her and gives her no choice, by threatening the two men she cares about the most on this earth, her brother Eli and the man she is head over heels in love with Ram, Ginny finally realizes that her father has won. Fate always seems to have a way of knowing what and who is best for you. But what happens when Fate is wrong? What happens when your heart won’t let fate win? What happens when you love the wrong person so much, it makes it is so very right? If you want the answers to these questions you need to pick up a copy of Forbidden Magic. And see who wins, Love or Fate.... Huge thank you to Jennifer Lyon for allowing me to read Forbidden Magic early. And for totally sucking me back into the world of the Wing Slayer Hunters and reminding me of how very much I love this series. This novella took me on a wild, tortuous journey with Ram & Ginny and left me dying for more..

Awesome! This story is full of the passion and angst that Jennifer Lyon is known for. She puts me right in the story, understanding what the characters are going through. I am so excited that she is continuing the Wing Slayer Hunter series!! There is more of Ram and Ginny to come :) And Linc, is next, and he is my favorite!!!

I love this book. The reader is pulled into the book from the beginning and sad when the book comes to an end. I want to read more books in this series. Keep them coming.

I have read all the books in this series, and I have got to say that Jennifer Lyon is one of my favorite authors. While this novella leaves readers hanging, it is an excellent read. It also leaves the reader with an excerpt for the next book in the series, Cage Magic. I really loved this novella, and cannot wait for more by this author.

A great Novella to a fantastic series. If you haven't read any of the Wing Slayer Hunter series, then this Novella is a great way to start - then go and read them all. Jennifer Lyon is an exceptional writer who brings it all to the page. I'm so glad that Jennifer has continued the series.

Jennifer Lyon never disappoints her readers! This novella left you gasping and wanting more, more, more! If you haven't yet indulged, then what are you waiting for? This series is a fresh take on the PNR genre and full of excitement and action! The characters are intense, as only true Alphas can be, and the romance is even more so. No matter how many books Ms Lyons` writes in this series it will never be enough! Wing Slayers ROCK!

This series was really well written and Mrs. Lyons plans on still writing them but self publishing them. Please if you like this series continue to support her writing of them. It is a very unusual take on witches.

I was so glad Jennifer was able to continue this series. I loved it from the first book and the series just keeps getting better and better. Ram and Ginny have everything going against them and their story was breaking my heart. This enovella took me on emotional gut wrenching journey with Ram and Ginny. I am definately pulling for Ram and Ginny and I hope to read more about their story in the books to come. I highly recomment this series and I give it 5 stars. Another great one Jennifer and I can't wait for the next one!!

I must confess that I am a huge fan of the Wing Slayer world that Jennifer Lyon has created. After reading Sinful Magic and falling in love with Kieren “Key” DeMicca, I was sad to hear that the series may end. When I read that Jennifer Lyon was going to self publish the next story I was ecstatic. I have literally invested emotional energy on these characters and wanted to read more stories. Forbidden Magic is a novella but it doesn’t feel like one. Many times when you read novellas, the story seems rushed and a happy ending appears too quickly. I felt like this was a complete story and I felt the same connection to this book as I did with the longer novels. I loved Ram’s story. Not only was I on an emotional roller coaster throughout the book, I found myself pulling for Ram and Ginny! I highly recommend the Wing Slayer series and I give Forbidden Magic 5 stars!

Another great installment in the Wing Slayer Hunters series. Fans of the series will not be disappointed. Ram doesn't want his soul mirror and she doesn't want him. Ram wants what is too dangerous to have....Ginny. Ram wants to protect Ginny and Ginny wants to save Ram. But Ram's soul mirror and Ginny's father stand in their way. How much are either of them willing to sacrifice to be together? And will it be enough?

‘Forbidden Magic’ is the first self- published e-novella by the wonderful Jennifer Lyon, continuing her Wing Slayer Hunter novels. This one tells the story of Ram and Ginny and let me tell you it’s hot, hot, hot. Lyon did not disappoint on this one. Even though it’s a novella, it reads like a full novel. The story that is told is complete and just as insanely passionate as her other four novels. The ending left craving more, I have to admit I was a tad bit angry when I read the ending. Not because it was bad, oh no but because I didn’t want it to end. I wanted more and I wanted to read it now. So I need to know what happens to them because I will literally be on the edge of my seat until I read some more and that will not be the most comfortable thing. I cannot and I mean cannot get enough of these books. These characters and their stories have become one of my favorite series, if not my favorite. I think this series is very underrated, and I cannot believe more people have not picked up these books and flocked to them. They should be on the bestseller’s list. They should be right up there with the mainstream books like the ‘Twilight’ series, yes I said it. Honestly I like these men and their stories one hundred times more than those, and I did like those. These books should be bigger though, add them to you TBR right now if you have not read them yet because you are missing out. The writing is amazing, the stories are beautiful, and the characters are phenomenal. Jennifer Lyon is a genius and deserves a much bigger following and I am doing my part to make sure that happens. ‘Forbidden Magic’ is a MUST READ!

Love this author!!!! While you could read this as a stand alone, I don’t recommend it. Why?? Because if you haven’t read the Wing Slayer series you are truly missing out on some amazing tales that I know you will want to start from the beginning. Each book draws you into a world that is so full of emotion and adventure that as soon as you finish the first book you will immediately want to start the next until you reach the last page of FORBIDDEN MAGIC. Wanting no part of him, Ram’s soul mirror has fled into hiding while he suffers with the awaking of his thunderbird. While his mind knows that finding the other half to his soul through his mate is his only chance to live, his heart can only ache to be with the only one he truly loves and can’t have, Ginny. Willing to do anything to save her brother from the hands of her father, Ginny agrees to do whatever it takes to keep Eli safe, even if it compromises hers. A powerful force demanding his daughter ascend and then drain all her emotions to him, Ginny won’t risk what will happen to Eli if she doesn’t comply. Wishing she could fill the other half of Ram’s soul the way he fills her heart, yet knowing it was never meant to be, Ginny knows she has completed her earthly training for her cruel father with the final emotion, heartbreak.
