Shadow Magic by Donna Grant

★★ Let me start by saying Donna Grant is one of my favourite authors and this book started out interesting. I was enjoying the characters, but by half way I was losing interest in the plot. The amount of times the phrases "the darkness" and "the great evil" had been mentioned, was getting ridiculous, and the characters didn't seem as developed as I normally expect from Donna Grant. With all of the series I have read of hers, I have always found the first book to be not as good as the rest,(and by that I mean the rest are wonderful and the first was good.) Mostly because she's building up all her characters. I always want to read the other books in the series. Sadly, for me, this one fell short of even those expectations. I have the whole box set so I may try out the others in the series one day.

Here's the blurb: 

With a past soaked in sin and darkness slowly closing in around him to claim his soul, Drogan only wants to live his life in solitude. Years in the king's service and his numerous deeds directed by the crown have left Drogan with horrendous nightmares and immeasurable guilt?

Serena is a witch, cursed and forever alone. She accepts her future. Until she meets Drogan. With Drogan a passion deep and unyielding awakens inside her. She is willing to sacrifice herself for his love, but can he put his past to rest and embrace the future?
