Book Review: Mad Magic by Nicole Conway

Reviewed: August 19th, 2021
Released: March 23rd, 2020
Genre: Paranormal Romance

Josie Barton is a high school student living in terror. Invisible creatures torment her everywhere she goes, constantly getting her into trouble at school, and even haunting her apartment. But just when Josie thinks things couldn’t get any worse . . . she meets the guy from across the hall.

Zeph Clemmont is a changeling with enemies in all the worst places, fighting to undo a curse that threatens to end his life. Survival means he will have to swallow his pride and trust Josie with all his darkest secrets.

With the help of a gun-slinging shaman and the enigmatic Prince of Nightmares, Zeph and Josie are only a heartbeat away from defeating one of the most diabolical faerie villains their world has ever known.

Helen’s thoughts: 5/5

A very well written YA paranormal romance with plenty of action and slow burn romance.

Josie thinks she’s crazy. She sees things that can’t be real. She is terrorised in her own home, and there is no one she can turn to. Until her attractive neighbour stops ignoring her and steps in. Everything changes and not necessarily for the better. There is still a question mark over whether she will make graduation.

Enter the magical realm and meet changelings, faeries and puka just to start with. Conway has developed a rich and varied world of magical creatures who are so well developed and engaging that you can’t help but read more. Zeph is the ultimate badboy and Eldrick a suave hottie underneath that dark brooding exterior.

An enjoyable and easy read.
