Blood Magic (Wing Slayer Hunter Series #1) by Jennifer Lyon


In the days when powerful witches used their magic to shield humanity from demons, their allies and guardians were a group of men gifted with preternatural abilities of their own–the witch guardians. But when a band of witches traded their humanity for demonic power, the ancient bond was broken, and the guardians became the hunters.

Darcy MacAlister knows nothing of demons or magic. But this beautiful young woman is about to discover the truth about her past . . . and her future. For she is a witch–not just any witch, but the key to breaking the curse that has plagued witches and the men who hunt them. For if a hunter kills an innocent witch by mistake, the price is no less than a piece of his soul.

Axel Locke, gorgeous leader of the Wing Slayer Hunters, has sworn never to shed the blood of the earth witches who have resisted the temptation of demonic power. But when his sister is cursed by a demon witch, he discovers that Darcy MacAlister may hold the cure–if she can master her newfound powers in time. When the chase begins and Axel and Darcy come face-to-face, this hunter must weigh his soul against his honor–and against his heart.

About the Author

Award-winning author Jennifer Lyon always wanted to be a witch. Since her witch-powers never materialized, she moved to plan B and now creates magic in her books. She has written several mystery series, and now lives with her husband and three sons in Southern California, where the horrendous traffic affords her plenty of time to dream up stories.

I enjoyed Jennifer Lyon's take on witchcraft- protecting humans from demons. The storyline is intriguing, romantic, and draws you in from the first few pages. I couldn't put this book down- so now I can't wait until the next book- Soul Magic comes out....urgh! I hate waiting..

I am new to this author. I was so happy I found her. The book was a can't put down from the start. Loved the story line, characters, and the thrill factor. I can't wait for the next book. I was so happy for more I hit the book store as soon as I was done reading the first, sad to find I had to wait. But totaly worth the wait.

Great start of the series. Yes, it's romance, but the story line grabs you and doesn't let go. You'll find yourself immersed in the lives of the characters. Lyon puts a fantastic twist on the world of witchcraft. But be careful because one book is not enough. "Blood Magic" is the perfect setup for the Wing Slayer Hunters!!

IN A SEA OF PARANORMAL ROMANCE, HERE IS ONE AMAZING GEM!, March 1, 2009 By L.A. Mama "LWI" (los angeles, ca United States) - See all my reviews I am a big fan of paranormal romance, and very particular about, not just quality of writing and the plot, but the characters. Well, the characters in Blood Magic DO NOT disappoint. They stay with you long after the book is finished. I swear, Axel and Darcy jumped off the page, pulled me into their action packed, super steamy story and took me for one great ride. My only gripe is that I read it too fast, and now what? Is there another one coming? And if so, when? And who's story is it going to be? More WINGSLAYER HUNTERS please!!! Jennifer Lyon is definitely an author to watch!

Funeral director Darcy MacAlister finds arranging her beloved mom¿s funeral is a catharsis of sorts although hearing some speak of the deceased as if she was evil bothers her enough that her Special Forces cousin Joe notices and tells her to ignore the fools. At about the same time that she buries her mom, witch hunter Wing Slayer Hunter leader Axel Locke is worried that his sister Hannah has been attacked by a death curse. He knows only two ways to save her: either the curse is lifted or a witch must die. Axel knows if he kills an innocent witch his soul will burn, but those witches who broke their sacred vow to protect humans from demons by switching sides are another matter as their former guardians like him are obsessed with killing the traitors.

Axel abducts a terrified Darcy whom he recognizes as an earth witch. He hopes to gain her cooperation by having her lift the spell. However though she commiserates with Hannah's dilemma, she never knew that witch blood flowed in her veins. Time is running out although she agrees to try to break the curse.

This is a fabulous opening act of a wonderful urban romantic fantasy starring two intriguing protagonists with an unwanted attraction pushing them towards each other and a blood curse pulling them apart. The story line is fast-paced, but owned by the lead pair as they ¿naturally¿ squabble while struggling to save his sibling. Jennifer Lyon bewitches sub-genre fans with this terrific thriller.

Honestly this book was predictable, sex hate sex death sex hate sex love sex hate then love again. Honestly was good at the beginning then about 100 pages in got boring and repetitive. I almost didn't finish it it got that boring. At about pa ge 240 I got excited again but then was hoping it would end. Sorry for the harsh review but it was just that bad.

I loved the main couple of Axel and Darcy. I easily connected with them and they're relationship was incredibly hot, but the secondary characters were intriguing as well. The plot moved at a great pace and kept me turning the pages, an interesting twist was thrown in as well and I'm curious to see how it plays out in future books. Blood Magic is a truly captivating story and a fantastic start to a series, I just purchased the next three books and can't wait to get started on them! 4.5/5 Stars

I have found too many paranormal series lately that are hard to stick with. The first book may be okay, so I give it another chance...and another, until I cannot waste any more time reading on. Blood Magic was a great first impression. The characters were engaging and well-written, the plot was exciting and made me look forward to what happens next. Already had the next book on my shelf and picked it up to start immediately. Hope the series continues as it has started!

This is only the 2nd witch based paranormal romance that I have ever enjoyed. The other was Anya Bast's Elemental Witches. This author has found a good niche with this series. I read this book in one sitting; I didn't even put my nook down to eat dinner. After the first chapter I downloaded the second book, Soul Magic, because I knew that the moment I was finished with this book I would want to move straight into the next installment. This was my first book by this author and I am glad this book was recommended to me. The writing,, story, plot, and of course the heroes are smoking hot. The heroes in the story are a brotherhood of Witch Hunters. The witch hunters struggle with a curse that makes them want to kill the witches, they once protected. They also have vowed to destroy all rogues, witch hunters that have lost their souls due to killing a witch. There is a great mix of paranormal figures; gods, demons, witches, witch hunters, and several others. I commend the author on a great first book - I hope the series continues with an ever increasing number of characters and plots. If you like paranormal romances, I recommend you pick up this book...You won't want to put it down. I am off to start the second book.

I don't often rant, rave and press books into the hands of strangers. BLOOD MAGIC is the exception to the rule. Lyon has created a new mythos in the paranormal genre with compelling characters, plot, and originality. She had me laughing out loud on one page and crying a few pages later. Axel is the perfect alpha male and Darcy is a feisty heroine thrown into a situation that would make most women run screaming. Say hello to the Wing Slayer Hunters! Axel leads a group of immortals sworn to protect earth witches and the world from villains craving witch blood. Adopted, Darcy doesn't know she's a witch until Axel kidnaps her and demands she help his little sister, the victim of a death curse. Time is running out. Lyon writes an "all-or-nothing" adventure with more than enough romance guaranteed to keep the reader turning pages late into the night. Thank goodness, this is just the first book in a series! Look for her next book, SOUL MAGIC, in November 2009. This book is a keeper!

I went into this book not knowing what to expect, I didn't know the author and there weren't many reviews at the time. Let me say, I am so happy I picked it up anyway! Great story with an easy flow, great characters, and great sex, I hardly put it down. I am disappointed that I have to wait for the next one to be released.

This book was a para perspective I have not seen before. The idea of demon witch slayers and then rogue slayers was fascinating. The ideology of the book is solid and holds true throughout. Great book!!!
