Double Alchemy ~ Climax by Susan Mac Nicol Blog Tour, Review & Giveaway

Double Alchemy - Climax (Book 2)
Susan Mac Nicol
Climax - Cover
Genre: Paranormal M/M
Powerful modern warlock Quinn Fairmont found ecstasy with the silver-eyed and not-quite-human Cade Mairston, but to know true happiness the pair must best both the shadow of a long-ago lover and an ancient enemy who seeks to destroy love, light and all they hold dear. A BLINDING LIGHT It begins with a Book of Shadows discovered by a London coven. The grimoire is as dangerous as it is rare, which is why it evokes modern-day warlock Quinn Fairmont’s desire. He collects objects of great power and beauty—like his lover, Cade Mairston. Against all odds he and Cade found each other, but their perils have just begun. First is the ex-lover who once held Quinn in thrall. And, someone has been killing warlocks. Could it be one of his own kind? There are those too who would challenge Quinn’s power in their quest to overthrow him as Grand Master. Or is the danger something darker, something invoked inadvertently, rising from the shadows, building from the very inside of a man until it brings an end with a quick flash of light? Of the truth, the surface has only been scratched. Now Quinn and Cade must go deeper and find both answers and an end. They must learn what lurks in the hearts of men…and whether it seeks to love or destroy.

My Review: 
Can I tell you how much I love these two characters??  Quinn is this alpha male warlock that just melts when he gets next to Cade.  Cade is a man learning to deal not only with the magical world that Quinn has introduced him to but also his own Sprite heritage. He loves Quinn deeply and tries to support him even when he learns things Quinn has done that leave him uneasy. 

Unfortunately for these two life is never simple. The witch hunter is still on the loose and now there is evidence he is channeling his ancestor and trying to bring him back to life. Witches and warlocks are both dying and Quinn will have to face not only the enemy but also an old flame. 

This is one of those stories that just pulls you into a different world and you find yourself looking up hours later to wonder where the time has gone. Ms Mac Nicol weaves the story full of love.  The supporting characters are each well thought out and bring a realism into a fantasy world. 

I cannot wait for the next book in this series. I will be sitting on the edge of my seat until I can get it in my hands!

  1. Jill thanks so much for your lovely words and review, it's been a pleasure being here with you. Unfortunately (and I hate to tell you) Climax was the last book in the series. Cade and Quinn got their HEA and a rosy future and I don't think there will be another book, I'm sorry :( But as long as the guys ended up together and the evil was defeated, they can settle down and be very happy together :)
