My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I was so stoked to get my hands on this book, Dead Magic, the third in The Sanctuary Chronicles from India Kells. This has to be one of my favorite series of hers and they are jammed full with action, adventure, magic, mystery, lore, and steamy fun to balance it all out. I could not wait to get the story of Violet and Finn with this one and they did not disappoint. Another side note about this series is the covers, like they literally grab you without even saying a word. I wouldn’t even need a title on these to know they have to be full of some amazing story lines. This one may be my fav because of the purple undertones but it is drool worthy and definitely worth mentioning. I would highly recommend also that you read the first two books before this one. While it can be read as a stand alone novel I feel that these are better read in order so you get that slow and inevitable build up of excitement with each new one you read. This one has my favorite pairing, a sexy vampire, and a fierce witch. These two don’t want what fate is throwing their way. Will they be able to find the common ground and manage a relationship? That is about all I felt safe sharing the rest is only good when read by your own eyes. I can’t wait to see what will come next!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Dead Magic is the third book in the Sanctuary Chronicles series. It can be read as a standalone, but I highly recommend the previous books because they are awesome!

This book grabbed a hold of me in the first chapter and didn’t let go. The action starts almost right away and it leads you on a journey with Finn to find Violet and save her.

I love the characters in this book. Who doesn’t love a brooding vampire and witches, right??? Especially when they are drawn together but don’t want to be. You connect to the characters right away, which keeps you invested in their story and the outcome.

Superb read! Get this book! You will not be disappointed.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is quite the story that took me on ups and downs with this couple. I really was looking forward to this book as I loved the fire and spice between this witch and vamp. We get taken on a journey with these two. One has been damaged and finding help is what spurs them. They are each thrown off kilter in their individual worlds as well as their joined world.

It is great seeing all the crew from previous stories again. Plus we get a bit more of Hunter the human. He really has become invaluable to these paranormals. I was also happy to see that Abrams the ghoul got a bit more of a part as well since he is intriguing.

This is the third in the series and could be read as a stand alone. While I was eagerly awaiting their story I didn’t love it as much as I thought I would. I just didn’t feel their fire and spice like I expected. It’s still a great story that takes the reader to different places and touches on the dark side of things. Overall it was very enjoyable and I didn’t put it down until I found out what happened with these two.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow, Wow, Wow! The Sanctuary Series By India Kells has been brilliant from the very beginning, but India Kells has done something even better to this read Dead Magic, this book is is epic, captivating and utterly brilliant from the very beginning sentence until the very end, I didn’t want this read to end! I was transported into this world with its vivid descriptions, unbelievable storyline and even better characters. This was the ultimate mentally visual read that I couldn’t put down. I absolutely loved getting Finn and Violet’s story after meeting them in the previous read, but I never expected for their story to be this brilliant! Fin and Violet had the most incredible chemistry and connection and I loved seeing it develop and grow, but after everything Violet goes through will they be able to get a HEA? I absolutely loved this book, it shouldn’t be missed. I can’t wait to read more from this author, she shouldn’t be missed!

Dead Magic (The Sanctuary Chronicles, Book 3) by India Kells. I love India Kells and this book is no exception. I zoomed thru it quickly. Its the 3rd book in the series but could be read as a standalone. Its the story of Violet Shaughnessy a cursed witch and Finn O’Malley one of the oldest vampires on Earth. Finn is ready to put an end to it all until Violet reaches out to him. Violet is the only woman to ever stir anything inside Finn and he knows that she is the last woman he should mess with. Violet hates vampires and knows better than to mess with them because they murdered her parents but something about Finn pulls Violet in and she has no control. Their chemistry is so strong. She even ends up saving his life with her blood. Once they have that blood connection they are bound to one another. Will they be able to stop the evil lurking at the door? Read Dead Magic to find out!

OMG!!! I was sooooo excited to finally get my hands on this book. The Sanctuary Chronicles series is one of my all-time favourites!!! I love everything India Kells writes, and have read all her books- but this is hands down my favourite series of hers! I couldn’t wait to dive in, and devoured it in an afternoon.
Dead Magic is the highly anticipated third book in The Sanctuary Chronicles by India Kells. I love that we finally get Finn and Violet’s story. Having met them both in the previous books, I was immediately intrigued by them and wanted to know more. Hello- hunky vampire and a beautiful and powerful witch, do I need to say more. I wasn’t sure the book would live up to my extremely high expectations, but I should never have doubted Ms. Kells, as this book is every bit as good as the previous books, if not better. The story is extremely well woven and completely enchanted me right from the beginning, holding me spellbound right till the last word. Ms. Kells weaves a breathtaking paranormal romance with fantasy, vampires, witches, werewolves/shifters, necromancers, magic, danger, suspense, intrigue, drama, mystery, sinister plots, hidden agendas, black magic, curses, murders, and a race against time.
This story could be read as a standalone, but I really recommend reading the first two books before diving into this one- as there are a lot of recurring characters in this story who we get to meet in the previous books- as well as getting helpful backstory and character information. Not to mention that they are both exceptionally good stories in their own rights. If you love fantasy, paranormal stories, with suspense and a sizzling romance- I cannot recommend this book/series highly enough!
The story is so superbly written, wonderfully detailed, with vivid descriptions that help to bring everything into being. One of the things I have learned about Ms. Kells is that her stories are never simple, there are layers and complexities to everything. There is definitely a lot more to Finn, Violet, and their story. But with time running out they are going to have to work together to get to the bottom of it all and find a solution, before it’s too late.
Spellbinding reading!!!!

Thank you, India Kells!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Dead Magic: (The Sanctuary Chronicles #3) by India Kells is a great paranormal romance. Although this is the third book in The Sanctuary Chronicles, this is the first book I’ve read of the series. I didn’t find myself confused or missing out on parts of the story; though I’m sure had I read them in order, I would have felt more of a connection in regards to the other characters.
India gave us such well-developed characters that bring the story to life so beautifully! She writes characters that are easy to connect to.
I loved reading about Finn(one of the oldest vampires to walk the earth) and Violet(a powerful witch, with deep-rooted trust issues where vampires are concerned). Violet and Finn just worked so well together, and you could feel their connection despite how hard they fought against it.
I fell in love with their journey, and can’t wait to discover more from the Sanctuary in the upcoming book(s).

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Dead Magic by India Kells a five-star read that will bring magic alive. This is number three in the Sanctuary Chronicles, but they can be read as stand-alone, but you will want to read them all once you start. This story has great pace, you won’t be able to put it down, you have to know what will happen. Violet and Finn both have a battle and history they face, hearing from both of them helps you understand where they come from. Helps you understand and get deeper with the story, the chemistry in this story is sublime and will keep you aflame, but it’s the romance that really made the story.

Dead Magic (The Sanctuary Chronicles #3)Dead Magic by India Kells
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Dead Magic: (The Sanctuary Chronicles #3) by India Kells is a fantastic paranormal romance and great addition to the series. India weaves a magical tale of two wonderful characters and an unlikely pairing finding love through magic and mayhem with many magical beings, Witches, Vampires, Werewolves, Dragons and more. There is a lot going on in the story that kept me engrossed. I got lost in it and couldn’t put it down reading it in one sitting! I suggest reading all the books in order as the characters from the other books are all in it.

Violet is a witch who will do nothing to stop the evil and help those who she loves. She is fiery and finds herself with an attractions that should not be. When her world is turned upside down she loses herself from what she was to what she is becoming. She is terrified and hurt and the one person she should hate is the one person who she needs.

Finn is a very, very old Vampire who has had enough of the life he leads and has decided to disappear. There is one witch who has caught his attention but he knows it can never be, that is until he feels the horror and pain she is in. It is a race against time to find her and help her. Will they both survive?

Book 4 can’t come quick enough.
