I loved the whole premise of this series from the very beginning. Just the idea of subtle matter and the male Watcher feeding off his mate's release is brilliant. And despite Duse's male ego, their struggles to get together and stay together are the real kind - not what you find in a lot of novels. You know what I mean, where the hero/heroine says no just to push the story a few more pages. Their fears and insecurities are the type we all have - human and otherworldly beings alike. LOL

Between the steamy hot sex, the intense reactions of the two main characters to each other, and the tense storyline, you don't want to put this one down once you pick it up!

Four hundred and eighteen years is a longtime to wait for someone, but that's how long Duse has been waiting for Devon to return to him. The Watcher knew his love would be reincarnated and the wait has been hell but the worst is yet to come. She finally returns to him as Skylar. Duse must make her believe she is meant to be his mate and consummate there relationship in order to keep her safe from Asmoday, a Watcher who has chosen the path of evil. Already responsible for the death of Duse's brother's mate, Asmoday will stop at nothing to bring despair to the Ammadon clan.

Skylar knew her ability to manipulate matter which leads to the power to heal was not something everyone could do and meeting Duse she knew he was special, but not as special as the stories he was trying to convince her were true. Skylar's ability and her beauty is more reason Duse needs to cast the protective spell around her as quickly as possible, as he will soon find Asmoday is not the only one he needs to protect her from.

Whenever I see a glossary in the beginning of a story, I know it will be a sit down and pay attention type of story and Subtle Magic is definitely that. It's an interesting read that's tackles a very complex story line that is highly sexually driven. Sex is the power of this story. Subtle Magic held my attention even though I was confused at times and had to re-read certain passages. There are so many strong characters that are vital to the story with their own stories that at times I found it to be too much. I applaud Beth Kery for keeping it straight, she really did a good job. Subtle Magic is a very intriguing story.

This was a mildly entertaining book, worth a quick read, but not much more than that. While I appreciate the author working to provide a backstory and an introduction to the way her world works, especially since it's the first in a series, I felt it was a bit over-done on the description of the subtle bodies and some of the chakra information. Some of the past life story regarding Skylar was interesting, as she had been a healer, wise woman, village leader previously.

I would have liked a little bit more build-up before the hero and heroine had sex the first time. Sex scenes were pretty steamy; if you are reading the book just for the sex, this will probably be a good choice for you. I just didn't like the way all the sex scenes jumped right in without much other play (could very well be personal preference on that one).

One of the things the author could have done to make it more of a story was to make the danger a bit more apparent. That part of the story felt rushed and contrived. I would have liked more page time with Jax and maybe a bit more with the bad-guy. We know he's evil, but I just didn't feel the importance of what he was doing besides that he was killing these young women to keep them from "feeding" other Watchers. I also would have loved for the author to explore what appeared to be a budding relationship between Ainge and Sherry, who, btw, was probably my favorite character in the book. A retired police officer, smart, attractive (if a VERY young grandma), she kind of steals the show in the end.

I liked parts of the book, but feel like it fell short of what it COULD have been. Bottom line: read if you are in the mood to read something sexy and not particularly interested in the story.

Sensuality: explicit sex, adults-only

Beth Kery is a good writer. The world she creates reminds me of J.R. Ward's world of "Black Dagger Brotherhood". Creating a world that you would love to be in, if you're a paranormal kind of person. The book is steamy, hot, and erotic, but it also has some humor to it too. Imagine knowing that you have a soul mate in the world and your soul mate is taken from you by death, yet your soul mate can be reincarnated hundreds or even thousands of years later and you have to wait to have them in your arms again. I love Beth Kery's writing because she doesn't go on and on about describing the surroundings or use the first two chapters to describes the main characters abilities. Kery's characters come to life by her writing alone. The woman can write. I think if this is your kind of read, you will enjoy this book and the others that follow.
