From the Back Cover
New York Times bestselling author Christine Warren returns to the mesmerizing world of The Others―where a little dark magic unleashes a whole lotta love...
Daphanie Carter is thrilled that her sister Danice finally found her Prince Charming―even though he's not quite, well, human. Daphanie is trying to keep an open mind. Which is why she jumps at the chance to enter the hidden world of The Others when a friendly imp invites her to a non-human nightclub. Daphanie's curious to see how the Other half lives―and parties―but soon, one handsome stranger has her bewitched, bothered, and beside herself…
BLACK MAGIC WOMAN
Enter Asher Grayson. As a Guardian, it's his job to protect humans who get mixed up in the affairs of Others. When he spots Daphanie in a club, going head to head with a notorious witch doctor, he steps in to cool things off. Now the heat is on. Daphanie becomes the target of strange magical attacks, and Asher's got to undo the voodoo before it's too, too late. But soon he starts to wonder if this beautiful, beguiling mortal has put a spell on him―because every little thing she does is magic…
"A SEXY, ENGAGING WORLD!"
―New York Times bestselling author Cheyenne McCray

With 'Magic' in the title I had hoped that Black Magic Woman was going to be the rework of Rafe and Tess's book (Fur For All), but instead old fans of Warren's 'Fixed' series will get something new as Daphanie, Danice's sister (Prince Charming Doesn't Live Here), discovers the world of the Others and ends up with her very own 'Other'.
Even though I had a few nits, I still thought that Black Magic Woman was pretty good. It probably helped that there was a healthy helping of appearances by the supporting characters that I am so fond of: Graham, Missy and Rafe. Even though the build-up of sensual tension between the starring pair wasn't as intense as in some of Warren's other books, I liked the love scenes between Asher and Daph - the first, a wild claiming by Asher of Daph's body and the second, a tender claiming of her soul - and it didn't hurt that I am a total sucker for a winged hero. My nits, 1) Daphanie starts out a bit too headstrong and then sort of fades as the story progresses, 2)I found that the bits from the 'human guide to the Others', which started each chapter, disrupted the flow of the story. So after a few chapters I skipped them.
Still, I did enjoy Black Magic Woman and am looking forward to what Warren does with the rewrite of Corrine's story - though it's hard to remember, the original Fixed stories were pretty darn short. Oh by the way, if you are confused about how the Other's stories mesh with Warren's old 'Fixed' series, she's included a timeline in the preface of the book (I added my own version of it to the comments which follow this review.)
In Black Magic Woman ~ which, btw, IS a new title, not a revamped EC story ~ Daphanie Carter has moved back to New York ~ her sister, Danice (Prince Charming Doesn't Live Here) is getting married, and she's at a great point in her life for change, so New York it is. She's floored when she meets her sister's fiance & is introduced to a whole new world within our world that she never knew exsisted ~ the world of The Others, where her sister is marrying a Fae, friends with vampires, witches and shape shifters!
When she's offered an up close & personal chance to check out a club where the 'normal' Others hang out, she jumps on it! Never did she imagine she'd have a run in (or HE'D run into HER) with a Witch Doctor ~ or that she'd be saved by a Guardian......Angel? No, he's no Angel, but wow, he's HOT!
Asher Grayson is a Guardian ~ he protects human's who need it from Others who would do them harm. He'd already been checking Daphanie out when he see's her run in with the witch doc ~ he HAD to intervene and meet her, right? Even if it IS a little too late, since she's already been cursed.......now he'll have to guard her 24/7!
I was thrilled to find myself totally drawn into this story ~ couldn't put it down. I was a little disappointed in the last one, which was an EC revamp, so was scared I wouldn't love this one. No worries ~ the interaction between Daphanie & Asher is full of sparks & snark, and we get to visit with so many of the 'Others' from previous stories, it was just a blast to read.
I WILL say that she left a big thread dangling as far as I'm concerned ~ it's even mentioned by Asher as a huge worry at one point, but she doesn't resolve it for us. Maybe that's coming in a later book ~ I don't know, but it bothers me.......
Overall, this was a great book ~ a fun read, and with Christine Warren's books you can one up anywhere in the series and not be lost ~ she does a great, but brief, intro in each book. You may meet characters you want to know more about, but you don't HAVE to read them to 'get' the book.
Her Hero is amiable, affable, has a tendency to wear earrings, prefers walking to using a car ( on four legs or two he's not fussy)and WHITE. I love the idea of a town full of Shifters..... loved The Bears... writing is tight and the story line is carried along at a fast rate with two intriguing areas working at the same time.. the main one and the Heroine's on going battle to become a Warrior worthy to serve her Goddess.Laughs come often
and are woven into the theme with CHristine's usual skill. I now have most of her books and await the next one with anticipation. Keep writing Christine... I'll keep buying.
