A world filled with magic users - Malice (Malice Trilogy #1) by Amity Hope


Samara Cavanaugh has grown up in a world filled with magic users. She’s used to bizarre and peculiar. But when a stranger checks in at The Bella Luna, the bed and breakfast her family owns, the strange occurrences in Granite Falls escalate.

Many people are leery of Levi, their new guest. He claims to be in town doing research but Samara’s friends aren’t so sure that his claim is as innocuous as it appears to be. When two of her classmates disappear, her friends seem convinced Levi had a hand in it.

Those closest to her have been keeping secrets from her. Those secrets put everyone close to her in danger.

Suddenly, her unrequited crush on her best friend, Tristan becomes the least of her troubles.

Love in Paranormal Romance

My favorite genre to write (and read) is paranormal romance. An author can take paranormal romance to creative places that cannot be obtained in a contemporary romance. In general, a paranormal romance has more flexibility than a contemporary romance. As long as an author can twist a tale into something that still remains within the realm of believability, anything can happen.

In this genre the storyline can be pushed to the limits of an author’s imagination. A protagonist can go to hell and back (literally) for the one they love. They can bring loved ones back from the dead. More often than not the storyline will involve the protagonist going to extreme lengths for the love interest.

Often times we find our main characters fighting against curses, evil villains, and sometimes entire factions of wickedness while trying to live their everyday lives. This element adds another layer to paranormal romance that cannot be found in contemporary romances.

In Malice, Samara Cavanaugh faces the challenges of an ordinary teenager. She has a longstanding, unrequited crush on her best friend, Tristan. She’s struggling in her calculus class. She’s not too crazy about the crush her friend Finola has on a guy named Alex. This is all compounded by knowing that Tristan hates when she uses her magic. She’s just lost her calculus tutor--Tristan--to another girl. Her friend Finola’s crush just happens to be a Necromancer.

Samara’s problems are further magnified when she discovers her family’s bed and breakfast, The Bella Luna, has been hosting a very wicked man. When two classmates go missing, it isn’t long before Samara and her friends realize that malicious magic may have been involved. Together, Samara and Tristan race headlong into a magical battle that will have devastating consequences.
