Hidden Magic: A Sanctuary Chronicles Novella by India Kells

Hidden Magic: A Sanctuary Chronicles Novella is a wonderfully written paranormal romance that I absolutely loved. There was no putting it down until I finished even then I wanted more. India Kells is one of my favorite authors. Brant and Kat are two characters I loved reading about She is a fugitive and a telepath. She has finally found someone whom she cares for deeply. He is a werelynx and doesn’t have the support of a pack. Brant doesn’t think he is good enough for Kat. What happens after she’s been kidnapped? Will she be rescued? Will these two be bonded together? Find out what happens next in this absolute must read. As always I can’t wait to read more from this Author.

I love the pace of this book. You get immediate tension and the feeling something is wrong from Brant. He feels that deep down in your gut, imminent doom type of wrong and of course it’s somehow involving the love of his life, Kat. She’s just making cookies, not bothering anyone and WHAM- two total creeps show up after the shop has closed (which really made me hate them on a personal level, having worked in retail for a significant period of time). Kat is a telepath who doesn’t need any special gifts to know that these scrubs from her past aren’t just going to say hi and bye. They are more of the mind to shoot Brant in the chest and leave with Kat. Too bad it takes more than that to kill a werelynx.
India Kells is so wonderful with her descriptions and after reading two other books from this series, I was excited to read this novella-but I wish it had been longer.
If you’re new to paranormal romance or India Kells, this would be a decent place to start since it’s only a novella but it’s not the first in the series.

Hidden Magic by India Kells is a Sanctuary Chronicles novel. This is a short book and a quick read but it is just as good as all her work usually is.
This book is a great paranormal romance book. Although it is short it never at any point felt rushed or like something was missing. The characters were well developed and interesting to read about. I really thought that Brant and Kat had a great chemistry.
The story itself was well paced and well developed. Although it was short the author covered everything to make it a great story. It had depth, it had action, it had romance. I honestly felt like I was reading a full length novel and was disappointed when I got to the end because I could have easily kept on reading.
If you haven’t discovered this author yet then I urge you to pick up this book!

Normally I am not one to pick up a book with other worldly people written into the scenario, I tend to have a difficult time with sci-fi books keeping my interest, however with any India Kells novel I will devour it without question. Hidden Magic wasn’t any different for me. I absolutely adore how India makes one feel as if this normally outlandish idea of were/shifters co-mingling among us is completely plausible and fascinating. Every single one of the Sanctuary Chronicles has been wonderful and this little gem is the perfect novella addition. I don’t believe you have to read the others persay to enjoy this one as well, which is nice for those that enjoy standalones. I do highly recommend you read all the available ones however if you enjoy Hidden Magic.

In Hidden Magic we get the tale of Kat and Brant and holy hades this is a fabulous little romance that buds between these pages. I love the detail of not only the scenes in which these characters interact, but also of them as well. I felt as if I finished this novel fully knowing Kat and Brant as realistic beings I know, just like a friend. I absolutely can’t wait to see what else will come from the brilliant India Kells!

A great read about love. Brant is a were-lynx who is madly in love with Kat, a telepath. When she is captured by two strange men, his world is turned upside down. Desperate to find her and keep her safe, he enlists the help of his friends at the Sanctuary. On the search, he realises how much he loves her and that he will do anything to save her. But when events unfold and she is found broken, will his love be enough?
A great read. Well developed plot with twists and turns that I just couldn’t put down. Well developed characters like Brant as strong and silent but also caring and protective underneath or Kat bubbly but struggling with anxiety underneath. Great cast of supporting characters like the kind and caring Sera or the determined Hunter.
I loved the visual detail throughout the novella like with the cabin with its hearth fire and comforter and flowers for a sense of comfort and familiarity, a safe haven away from it all. Or the forest in the snow with its hidden wonders beautifully written. Or with the decorations in the cabin with the fairy lights and the tree for a sense of magic and wonder in bright colours with the red and green wonderfully written. Or the use of sounds and smells throughout, so vivid it’s as if you’ re actually there.
A great example of world building with a series of fantasy creatures coexisting in our world alongside humans with their own rules and laws and societies. I also loved the inclusion of different fantasy creatures in the novella such as the were-lynx and the telepath adding something fresh and exciting to the fantasy genre and given the respect they deserve and true to their origins in the case of the telepath.
The mix of fantasy of shifters and magic and the realism of police and crime scenes made for a compelling read and was combined to perfection. I also liked the use of suspense as details are revealed slowly about the captors and the past, making you want to read on to find why they took Kat. Fast paced action and high stakes make for a captivating read. Overall, a great read and I would give it five stars.

Hidden Magic: A Sanctuary Chronicles Novella by India Kells is a must read! This was truly a fantastic paranormal read that I thoroughly enjoyed from start to finish.

This novella was detailed, action-packed, shocking, intense and beyond addicting. This storyline ended way too fast for my liking as I could have read about Brant and Kat for hours.

I would absolutely recommend anything from India Kells as she never ceases to amaze me! I can’t wait to read more from this talented author in the future!

Every time I pick up a book by this author I am always hooked by what I am reading. Hidden Magic may have been a novella but it was packed full with a wonderful storyline and equally as wonderful characters. I am completely in love with Kat and Brant’s story, it is just so beautifully written. Brant’s determination just showed how much Kat means to him and I was rooting for them the whole way through. I honestly thought that they were so perfect for each other.
The whole story is just so beautifully and richly detailed that at times it is so easy to imagine what I am reading.
I cannot recommend this book enough and I am so excited to read more for Ms Kells again in the future!

Hidden Magic by India Kells is a paranormal romance. She has created a magical world with characters that come to life. Her vivid descriptions made me lose myself within the pages of her book. In a world of vampires, Brant does not make the choice of turning Kat into his world. There needs to be support because of the evil around every corner. He cherished her from afar until he sees that there are others that want her as well. Then the unthinkable happens and she is kidnapped. Will Brant find her? Will she be lost forever? Keep your eyes peeled to find out if Brant will be with Kat his soul mate.

Please do yourself a favor. If it lists India Kells as the author, just assume it will be amazing (because it will be) and add it to your reading list pronto. This book absolutely lives up to Kells’ reputation. Masterful storytelling with vivid/rich characters. Just couldn’t put the story down. I loved every single page and I know you will too.

Hidden Magic is part of the Sanctuary Chronicles Collection. It is an exciting and magical novel focusing on a shifter romance. Brant feels that Kat is his mate and they are in love. She is a telepath and their love is against the rules of the High Council. When tragedy strikes and Kat is kidnapped, Brant almost loses it. With the help of his human cop friend Hunter, they locate and save her. They save her physically anyway. I was torn with her state of mind when they rescued her. I loved how Brant dug deep down to open up and care for her to attempt to bring her back to reality following. This novel was beautiful and I really enjoyed it. I loved that the author immediately pulls you in to the action. It was fast paced and I was able to read this in one sitting. I highly recommend this book and I look forward to reading the other books in this collection.
