Welcome to my stop on this Blog Tour for the release of THE MAGICIAN’S CURSE, which is the first book in the Great Dagmaru series by Linda G. Hill.
I would like to say that it is truly my pleasure to be invited onto this blog tour! Particular thanks to Anne Cater and the lovely Linda G. Hill, who gifted me an early copy of THE MAGICIAN’S CURSE. I am forever grateful and promise that the review below is 100% honest and of my own views.
To kick off, we have the “blurb” for the book;
When Herman Anderson leaves home to make a better life for herself, she doesn’t expect to meet a tall, dark stranger with whom she’ll fall hopelessly in love.
Charming and mysterious, Stephen Dagmar is a stage magician seeking an assistant. The moment he sets eyes on Herman, he knows she’s the one. He brings her home to his Victorian mansion where they embark upon an extravagant romance. Yet a shadow hangs over their love. Will the curse on his family end Stephen and Herman’s happily ever after, before it really begins?
Amidst lace and leather, innocence and debauchery, The Magician’s Curse begins the Gothic tale of The Great Dagmaru. Magic and romance await.
So, want to know what I thought?;
This was a rather unexpected journey, one full of mystery and intrigue. Here is a love story woven into the mystical world of magic, curses and true love.
As with every story, nothing is plain sailing for the characters central to it. There are many obstacles facing our young heroine Herman and the dashing magician Stephen. A chance encounter, a family curse and fate getting in the way. This is definitely a story that was well thought out by the author, the plot believable and the characters likeable.
I found myself being drawn into this world, hoping that our two characters would over come the difficulties they faced. A story of blossoming love and a little bit of magic to boot.
Overall a very enjoyable read, one that I think will definitely be revisited later on. The author knows her characters and writes them well. Although this is more subtle approach to the genre, it is one to recommend.
