Book Review: Double Alchemy by Susan Mac Nicol

 

denise review

I will start this review by admitting that I was a bit hesitant to read Double Alchemy.  I have only read one other paranormal book,
and it was far more comedy than paranormal.
I enjoyed it, but it did not instill a love of paranormal.  However, because it was Susan Mac Nicol, I knew this was a must read.  In fact, I had previously hesitated on a few of her books, for no real reason other than my own fears!  Susan writes so deeply and with such intensity that sometimes the book description has scared me off a little, although after reading them, I have no idea why.  That being said, I have read all of her M/M books now, and after finally reading Saving Alexander, I said that I would no
longer hesitate, and immediately bought Double Alchemy.  As always, Susan did not disappoint.

 This story is about Cade, an anthropologist, who happens upon Quinn, the Warlock King, in the woods.
Quinn immediately knows that Cade is his soulmate, but he also has Sprite in him, making them irresistible to each other.  Their attraction is immediate, animalistic, and HOT!!!!  When these two men come together, sparks fly.
            “Cade’s head swam and he had no idea how he
suddenly ended up totally naked, his clothes in puddles at his feet, with Quinn
busy stripping down with demonic speed…Fuck, the man must have big feet.  I don’t know how that’s ever going to fit
inside me.”
I absolutely loved these Cade and Quinn together.  Although Quinn was the Grand Master, Warlock
King, and full of magyck, Cade would not let him get away with even the
slightest things.  Cade saw Quinn as the
human, with faults and annoying habits, and loved him anyway.  Cade was never nervous about telling Quinn
where to put those bad habits, either, no matter who was around.  And they were able to enjoy each other, have
fun and laugh together.
            “’Hell, Cade, you are trouble.  I knew that the minute I saw you in the woods
that day.’ Cade’s mouth curved in a sexy smile and Quinn’s cock pushed against
his zipper. ‘That’s trouble with a capital T, girlfriend,’ Cade camped up.”
Quinn, on the other hand, although a true Alpha male, adored
Cade, and would do anything for him, even risking his life to save Cade.  They were great opposites who fit together
perfectly like two halves of a whole.
One of the things that I enjoyed about this book was the
action.  There was a lot going on, and
things kept brewing up, would be settled, then more would come up.  However, my concern with paranormal has
always been that I wouldn’t quite understand what was happening (okay, that
might have been just my own fear) but Susan made sure that the reader
understood all the magyck as the men worked through all their trials and
tribulations.  There were so many layers to this book, and yet Susan made it possible to not only follow along but kept you wondering as to what else could come up!
Although, there is not a cliffhanger, there were definitely
enough unanswered questions that I can smell a Warlock King and Fey Sprite
Volume 2 ahead.  And I, for one, can’t
wait!  (I might have seen a posting somewhere that the “Climax” is in edits.  Woo Hoo!)
If I had one thing that I would say on the other side, it
would be that there were a few errors in the book that perhaps should have been caught during editing, but not
enough to take away from the heart of the story.
For my first true paranormal book, it was really a great
adventure.  For a Susan Mac Nicol, it was
another amazing book.  It was full of
lots of undeniable love, hot sex scenes, action and interesting secondary
characters (I am sure there is more to Marco than appears initially!).

I am giving this book a solid 4.9 pieces of eye candy.
