Strange Magic Review The seventh book in the Witches of Cleopatra Hill series by Christine Pope ranks up there with my favorites of her books and I’ve read a lot of them. I wasn’t really sure what to expect since there were a number of ways she could have taken the story. I was pleasantly surprised to see a couple plot twists, one in particular, that I really didn’t see coming. One of these days I’ll stop being surprised by these things. Christine is one of the best writers in romantic fiction that I’ve read over the years. She has an amazing imagination and it’s so much fun to see it at work time and again. This book is about reluctant prima-in-waiting Zoe Sandoval of the de la Paz clan and warlock Evan McAllister. Zoe has a problem. It’s less than two weeks until her 22nd birthday and tradition dictates that she find a consort in order to be able to fully activate her powers, powers that will help keep her clan safe from magical attacks from other clans. In desperation, Zoe casts a spell to create her perfect consort. Unfortunately, the spell backfires in a big way, creating a monster that escapes into the surrounding Phoenix area. Enter handsome Evan McAllister, the fixer of the McAllister clan. Evan’s gift is to fix any spell that has gone haywire. Together Zoe and Evan desperately try to find and contain the creature before the rest of the world discovers the existence of the magical community all the while fighting against their mutual attraction. What surprised me most about this book is the evolution of the monster and what Christine did with it. I really appreciated not being able to guess what would happen with it. It was a lot of fun. Altogether this is a really fun read for fans of Christine Pope and of her Witches of Cleopatra Hill series. I would recommend those new to the series start with Dark Angel or another book. Some catching up would help in order to fully appreciate this book.
Zoe Sandoval may be the prima in waiting for her clan but she feels like a prisoner. When she takes her destiny into her own impatient hands, she lands herself in real hot water and lets loose a malformed entity into the world. It seems fixated on her and appears to be stalking her and females who look like her. Her family call in Evan McAllister, a spell fixer, to track down the entity to dispose of it. He really shouldn't be finding Zoe to attractive. He still feels raw after his exs betrayal, he really should not like the feisty little firecracker! Another fab episode in the Witchy world of Cleopatra Hill. Evan is a great alpha hero but with a seriously soft centre! Zoe wants to help her clan but doesn't understand why she has to hitch herself to someone fate decides is perfect for her, what about what she wants! I dare you not to fall in love with "Levi"! He is such a naive persona and I can't wait to see what happen to him!!!
