Aidan Loriel is a powerful necromancer
from Aurora, a realm outside of earth. Aidanís personal
journal containing his powerful spells is missing, but the
protection spell he placed on it will ensure that it will
return to him, along with the one who uses it.
Evan Bartholomew is a young gay man
living in Virginia. He is a pagan who dabbles in magic. Evan
purchases a fascinating spell book containing a picture of
Aidan in it. Evan is mesmerized by him. After casting a love
spell to find the man of his dreams, Evan falls asleep and
awakens in an unfamiliar place.
Aidan and Evan are immediately drawn to
each other, but itís against the law for them to be together.
Aside from that, King Rakas wants Aidanís powers, King Tordis
wants Evan in his bed, but Queen Pretore would rather see him
dead. Evan is definitely not in Virginia anymore!
Magic, mayhem and forbidden love fill the
pages of Magic and the Pagan. Its creative
storyline is often amusing or enchanting, tender or hot.
Aidan won my heart from the beginning and Evan is a likeable
guy. There is a strong sense of desire and comradery between
Aidan and Evan, but it did take a bit for me to feel that
connection between them though. Magic and the Pagan
is another well-written, and creative story by Mychael Black
and Shayne Carmichael.
