ARC Review: Dark Magic By Renee Travis


Have you ever wondered what life would be like if witches and mortals lived together? If they coexisted? What if they had their own monarchy here in the U.S.A? How would it work if they ran businesses and brought up families next door to humans? Better yet, what if all witches were… out of the broom closet…so to speak?

 In my novel Dark Magic, Kalma is a witch; not a normal witch, an immortal witch, with power over death. She is also a Princess and a middle child, which causes her no end of frustration. Wanting to feel like she is doing something with her life, Kalma embarks on a journey where she must solve the mystery of missing Death Witch children. With the help of her colorful sisters and a Servant of Death, she gets more than she bargained for, and her life and the life of her people will never be the same.

Dark Magic is a completed 53,187 word YA fantasy/paranormal romance. It is the first in a series about Kalma and her five sisters. This novel will appeal to readers who enjoy the darker side of the Young Adult section, AU, and mythology.


Dark Magic was one witchy journey. I hadn't expected to enjoy this book as much as I did.

The plot sure was one of its kind. I'v never read this kind of a story before and it was a pleasant surprise. The characters were mostly lovable well except for the villains. I adored each and every sister of Kalma. Kalma herself was one compassionate character. I really liked her too.

Now about her SOD. He was swoon worthy for the most part. I loved how he teased and flirted with Kalma. But it didn’t really feel right when he confessed his love for Kalma and her being all ready too. It felt kinda rushed to me. Other than that the story was easy to read and to become engrossed in.

Overall I really enjoyed reading this book and will definitely wait for the sequel.

RATINGS: 3/5Stars
