"Can Love Overcome Destiny?"

Serena comes from a long line of women with rather challenging magical gifts. She is so sensitive that her flesh bruises with the slightest touch, or burns in even mild sunlight. She also has visions of the future, but these visions always portent two separate paths toward death.

Drogan doesn't believe in things supernatural, but upon learning of Serena's gifts, he doesn't shy from them either. Or her. When Serena comes to Drogan for aid, confiding that she has seen the deaths of his dearest friend and his family, and also the way to avoid their deaths, Drogan doesn't hesitate to help her.

However, Serena left out the tiny detail that saving their futures will take away her own. And Drogan has secrets of his own. He is stalked by a horrific sin from his past that is coming for them all.

Shadow Magic is the first book in a trilogy featuring unique magical women. The story plays with the interesting concepts of divergent paths of destiny, irreparable sins, sacrifice and redemption, around the lives of two people who set their own longings and desires behind hopelessness and guilt. Drogan and Serena are definitely a couple you want everything to work out for and the author skillfully pulls in enough bleak obstacles that the happily ever after truly seems daunting, which, of course, makes the ending all the more satisfying.
