Description: Magical species must never mix. According to the rules, Simon Osborne should ignore the children’s cries for help. After all, they’re werewolf cubs, and he’s an apprentice mage. But for once in his life, Simon breaks the rules and rescues the cubs, saving them from a demon intent on draining them of their magic.
Of course, all actions have consequences, and Simon’s bold move earns him the displeasure of his peers and the attention of the cubs’ alpha, a man named Gray Townsend.
The last thing Gray needs is a mage in his life, but Simon did save his son. Since Simon is now a friend of the pack, Gray doesn’t have much choice about it—or the forbidden attraction that goes along with it. Unfortunately for the alpha, he needs Simon’s help to track down the demon behind the kidnappings—before it strikes again. Simon and Gray must join forces to protect the pack, even as they struggle to resist the temptation that threatens to destroy them both.
Review: Simon Osborne is faced with a decision that will change the course of his life forever in Poppy Dennison’s novel “Mind Magic.” Simone Osborne is an apprentice mage working hard to achieve mage status. When the kidnapping of a small group of werewolf cubs changes Simon’s path he begins questioning everything he has been taught. Simon is a clever apprentice and is able to get the cubs back home but that is only the beginning.
Gray Townsend, the werewolf alpha, is instantly drawn to the young mage but as the alpha he isn’t so sure he can trust Simon. But Simon has been made a friend of the pack and deserves protection. Gray quickly realizes that Simon is his mate and the draw to the apprentice mage is becoming harder to resist.
From the moment the book firsts starts I was instantly pulled into Simon’s side of the story in hopes that he would save the werecubs even though it was against the magical world rules. Simon Osborne is one clever mage to get those kids out. Gray is a strong and protective alpha who is determined to get to the bottom of the cub kidnappings and destroy the demon responsible.
Poppy Dennison has written a thrilling story of romance and suspense on a paranormal world where different types of magic do not mix. She makes us face the tragedy of judgement on others before we even know their intentions.
Mind Magic is one of those books that offers a heart-felt story of learning to trust when the world has told you to look the other way. I recommend this book to anyone who want a romantic book filled with danger.
