Blind Magic (The Sanctuary Chronicles) by India Kells
4 Stars

I have read many paranormal books and I’m happy to say that this is an original piece of work. There is romance, intrigue, supernatural beings and mythology all thrown in together. The addition of mythology adds a nice twist to the story.

Sera Dover is an orphaned witch whose power is making her go blind. Ian Macon is a werewolf whose heart has been broken in a million pieces. When they get together, it’s electric. It is also against the law. Each species has to stick to their own, no intermingling allowed. You can be friends but nothing more. Though Sera tries to keep it just friends, the attraction is undeniable. Ian doesn’t care about the law, he knows he loves her and will protect her with his life. With someone trying to kill her, it will take all her friends coming together to protect her.

I haven’t read book one in the series but Ms. Kells did such an awesome job with her back story that I was never lost. There are a lot of little details that are important to the story which you only realize later. It is in these complexities that make her writing so great. This is the first book that I have read from this author and definitely won’t be the last. I’m looking forward to the next chapter in this series.

Blind Magic: The Sanctuary Chronicles Book 2
By India Kells
5 Stars

So, when reading a paranormal romance what are we wanting? Magic? Witches and shifters? And of course, romance! India Kells delivers that and more with this fantastic read. But that’s not all this book delivers and every reader will be riveted until the very end!

Ian Macon is a broken man. With the loss of his mate, he does not see a future for himself. But being the beta of the Asher Pack has given him purpose. But he knows that he will never have that mating bond again and will be just a shell of the wolf that he once was. Until he meets Sera Dover. Something about her just draws him in…

Sera Dover has always known that her eyesight is diminishing. All she wants is to leave her past behind and focus on the future. But when her eyesight is suddenly taken from her, Sera is left reeling and unsure about what her future will now hold. Can she make a new future with these new challenges? And how will the intriguing wolf that she met just before she lost her eyesight play into that future?

I love paranormal books. Something about the mystical just always pulls me in. But India Kells blew me out of the water with this book. From the little details and nuances she delivers to the rich characters, Ms. Kells gives the reader so much more. The story is intriguing with the bit of forbidden romance and air of mystery that floats throughout. This was a wonderful read that left me wanting to go back and read it again and again. If you’ve never tried paranormal books, I highly recommend Ms. Kells as an author to try out the genre. She hits the nail on the head and you will become a fan before you know it!

Blind Magic (The Sanctuary Chronicles #2)Blind Magic by India Kells
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A great read about independence. Sera is a witch who has recently lost her sight. But her blindness holds more secrets than she knows and brings danger into her life. Dreading the consequences, Sera wants to run but her friends want to help. Will she stay and put them in danger, or risk the consequences alone?
A great read. Well developed plot with twists and turns that I just couldn’t put down. Well developed characters like Ian trying to move on from pain and protect people or Sera trying to carry on despite it all. The depiction of blindness and it’s struggles was beautifully done and emotive and powerful and I loved the colourful auras vivid and bright to help her see which was a lovely touch. I also loved the use of the senses throughout with smell and touch and taste and hot and cold as if you were actually there.
Great cast of supporting characters like Finn and Violet with humour the book needed or Hunter as the calm source of reason.
I loved the fantasy nature of the novel with its shifters and witches mixed with realism of coffee shops and libraries which made for a captivating read. The use of magic was spellbinding each time with different powers alongside fast paced action and high stakes for a brilliant read.
Overall, a brilliant read and I would give it five stars.

Blind Magic (The Sanctuary Chronicles #2)Blind Magic by India Kells
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I have to say that Blind Magic is the first book that I read by India Kells. I was pleasantly surprised by what I read, as it had a good amount of Paranormal in it. I went in blind, without really knowing what the book really was. This was also because I haven’t read the first book in the Sanctuary Chronicles. It took me a second to follow along, but it wasn’t a major problem.

I most definitely enjoyed Sera & Ian’s world and all that they had to offer. Their quick attraction, which is undeniable is one that I loved. I liked the author’s ability to create this world, one that the reader can easily get lost within. I definitely enjoyed the writing style, character building as well as the way in which the storyline was portrayed. Definitely a 4 star book for me. I can’t wait to read more by this author.

Blind Magic : The Sanctuary Chronicles By India  Kells is a paranormal romance book,with a bit of mystery, magic,magical creatures and some romance. I was hooked from the first page and couldn’t put it down to I was finished. This is the second book in this series (The Sanctuary Chronicles) but I do recommend reading the first book in this series as there are some recurring characters in this book that we met in the first book and the back story .I don’t think I can explain just how much I love Ian’s character and Serawho we met in book one. Sera is a researcher and scholar whom works at Impossibilities Inc, and is also a witch.She spends a lot of time with her nose in books. Sera is slowly losing her eyesight and expects to lose it completely, but is blindsided when blindness strikes her suddenly. She’s had trouble adjusting to never being able to see again. But she will never forget the last thing she saw,was the dark and quiet intriguing werewolf that she feels drawn to .Ian’s world as he knew it was completely shattered several years prior he lost his wife and young daughter who was killed by the rogue Enforcers. He was mad and broken,alone and bitter towards everyone. Asher brought him to The Sanctuary and gave him a place where he could help others and make a difference doing it.Find out what happens next. I highly recommend reading this book as well as the first book in this series as well. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series.

Five Stars

This story was filled with jealousy, magic and forbidden love. Sera is a witch and has come to terms that she is blind. This wasn’t always the case though. Now she has to worry about getting around and also if someone would be coming after her for her powers. This story had everything in it. One scene after another filled with action. The author did a really great job with these characters. You can feel the connection the characters have for each other. I really liked Ian. He was so possessive. Like any good wolf should be. I also liked that the author pushed the boundaries when it came to different creatures or otherworldly beings finding love.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Blind Magic: The Sanctuary Chronicles by India Kells is a paranormal romance story. India Kells has an interesting story-telling ability that really grabs you in the first couple of paragraphs. There is safety for the reader because you are in your home but for the characters they have to find their safety within their world. There is action, mystery, and magic within the world. Sera Dover is a strong female who keeps learning by reading books. She feels the need to protect others to the point where she will put herself is danger. Ian will go and protect Sera to his death if he has too. You can see where these two have chemistry. They often have situations where they cannot seem to get anything done because of the quarrels. So if they can keep level headed and try not to outdo one another. I love this couple and I have a feeling you will too. I cannot wait to see more in this series.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Blind Magic is the second book in The Sanctuary Chronicles from India Kells. I have not had the pleasure of reading the first book, Broken Magic, although now I will be running to do so. It didn’t really affect my ability to enjoy this one though. Kells was a doll and gave us a pretty detailed prologue to catch us up for this one thankfully. This was just that amazing that I have to get my hands on the first as well. I normally don’t pick up books that fall into this ‘category’ but let’s be honest, look at that cover! Yummy, and eye catching. I had to know what was behind it. I am so glad I dived in blind.

In Blind Magic we get quite the story. I must say there was not a single moment that I was bored, and actually several hours that I was the do not approach the reading mom/wife or you may die type. Can you really describe a dark and twisty suspenseful book as beautiful and magical? I think this book qualifies for that, and really can’t come up with a better way to sum it up.

Sera Dover is one heck of a woman. Strong, independent and resourceful, oh and she is one heck of a witch. She will stop at nothing to protect those that she loves and cares about. She will face whatever danger comes her way too. Then there is Ian Macon, the damaged and gorgeous werewolf. He is instantly drawn to Sera. Her light and peace is something his shattered soul seeks out. These two have a connection that will set your kindle screens on fire, and give you a need for a tall glass of water, maybe even a fan or two, if you get my drift.

Of course, there is always danger lurking around the corner in all the great suspenseful novels. What is to come for them now and in the future? For that you must dive into this amazing five-star read for yourself, for I cannot bear to give away any more than I already have! Happy reading!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Blind Magic by India Kells a five-star read that will thrill you. This is the second book in the Sanctuary Chronicles and it could be read as stand-alone, but I would recommend the series as each book is better than the last and I can’t wait for book three, as this series has it all, beautifully written story with compelling characters, drama mystery and enough romance to blow your socks off. Sera and Ian are well written characters and their story will make you fall in love. One of my favourite things about this one was the way there are multiple little stories running through the main one and they all play a role overall its very well done and makes a compelling read.
