Double Alchemy is the first book in the Double Alchemy duology. We meet Quinn, the Grand Master of the Warlocks, who has grown up knowing his role in life, and takes it very seriously. However, when he meets Cade, the attraction they feel for each other is off the charts! Cade is 'just' a human, or so he thinks. Then they find out that Cade has some elemental in his genealogy, which goes some way to explain the attraction. What happens with Cade and Quinn takes a back seat though when an old enemy, who Quinn thought was dead, turns up to cause mayhem and chaos. This is a wonderful paranormal book that delves into the world of witches, Warlocks, and Withinners (still not sure why witches is the only one not capitalised though). With an in-depth world and social structure, this book was a delight to read. The pacing was smooth, and the transition from one scene/time to the next flowed very nicely indeed. I am looking forward to finding out more about Quinn and Cade, being as they are both mysterious characters indeed. A great paranormal book, and definitely recommended by me. * A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book, and my comments here are my honest opinion. * Merissa Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

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.
