My Review
Illicit Magic is an unputdownable novel filled with twist, turns, danger, romance, mystery, action, suspense, with a touch of humor that will keep you glued to the pages and wanting some more of this hot new series!

Stella Mayweather has always been different and socially awkward. Strange things have happened to her since she was young so keeping a life a solitude is what she is use to. Her life changes when a group known as the Brotherhood targets her. About to be the next victim of a number of murder happening around London, a stranger appears and saves her just at the nick of time. The stranger turns out to be Etoile - a witch, and Stella learns that she is a witch as well. The Brotherhood is on a mission to take her kind out, so they keep Stella in a safe house where she learns witches aren't the only supernaturals in the world. With the help of her new friends, she begins learning to tap into the magic that she has within. Soon she catches the eye of two incredible guys and her life gets even more complicated, but that is the least of her worries. Stella soon learns that it is not just the Brotherhood that is after her and  the safety that she thought she found is no more. Someone else is after her and anyone around her can be the suspect. With hunters after her, someone in her inner circle against her, and her powers just out of her reach, Stella must learn how to tap into her magic fast or risk losing the new life she has made just as quickly as she found it. Will she be able to save her friends and herself or will she lose it all to the enemy?

This book is an amazing ride that will have you laughing, crying, cheering, and your temperature rising as you step into the life of Stella Mayweather. If you love HP Mallory and Charlaine Harris, then Camilla Chafer's series must be on your TBR list!

I would love the ability to phase and be anywhere that I want. Blink my eyes and I'm in another part of the world - how cool would that be? Plus, that we save me a bunch of money. Who needs planes, trains and buses with a power like that :-)
