Book review: Night of Magic by Stephanie Burkhart



Night of Magic…Samhain—Dark…Dangerous…Powerful…The year is 800 A.D. on the Emerald Isle, and Prince Jasper is determined to regain that which has been lost to him.

Five years past, Princess Aithne was taken from her father, Prince Jasper, by the forces of the Other World. On Samhain, the veil between the worlds is thin, and can be breeched more readily—especially if one walks amid the ceremonial bonfires.

When Princess Aithne disappears, her father vows every year to bring her back. He tempts many champions with a chest of gold, but only one man can succeed.

This year, Finn is determined to lay claim to that treasure, but to do so, he must tempt Fate. Will he survive his journey to the Other World to bring the princess back? Will he dare follow his heart? Or will greed determine what lies in store for him on this NIGHT OF MAGIC?

My review:

Talk about goosebumps, surprises, and interesting -- Fin and Princess Aithne's story was totally unexpected! I was hooked into the tale right away, thinking I knew what I was gonna get, and each time I learned something new about the characters or the situation, I was trapped even more and couldn't stop reading! I can't say too much more without spoiling the fun, so... if you're looking for a quick, unique, lightly unearthly story to escape into, you've found it!

Oh, and can we just say-- isn't that cover gorgeous swoony?  haha!

  1. I've always loved medievals and when you throw in some other world elements, so much the better. Great review, as usual, Michelle. And I love the cover. Finn has "the eyes". Haunting.

    1. You out to try it out, then! It was a nice short read that gave alot more than it appeared at first! :)

  2. The perfect blend of the mystic, historical, romance, and dangerous. Just perfect for October, but marvellous any time.

  3. Steph is having trouble posting comments here, but I'm going to post one for her:
    Thank you so much for the review. I'm glad you enjoyed the story. Have a great Halloween tonight.
