Review: Mind Magic by Poppy Dennison

Magical species must never mix. According to the rules, Simon Osborne should ignore the children’s cries for help. After all, they’re werewolf cubs, and he’s an apprentice mage. But for once in his life, Simon breaks the rules and rescues the cubs, saving them from a demon intent on draining them of their magic.

Of course, all actions have consequences, and Simon’s bold move earns him the displeasure of his peers and the attention of the cubs’ alpha, a man named Gray Townsend.

The last thing Gray needs is a mage in his life, but Simon did save his son. Since Simon is now a friend of the pack, Gray doesn’t have much choice about it—or the forbidden attraction that goes along with it. Unfortunately for the alpha, he needs Simon’s help to track down the demon behind the kidnappings—before it strikes again. Simon and Gray must join forces to protect the pack, even as they struggle to resist the temptation that threatens to destroy them both.

The caring mage Simon is about to cross paths with danger and the forbidden all to help innocent children, damn the consequences. The consequences are high. Magical beings are not to mingle with Others. Gray is immediately skeptical of the Mage that shows up at his packs compound with all of their missing children/cubs. Due to the laws that forbid Others from associating with one another he knows very little of what this man is. A pack Alpha never wants to be in a situation that involves anything unknown. The only thing Gray does know is that there is an immediate fierce attraction to the Mage.

Gray and Simon soon find out that removing the children from the evil that is determined to harm them is not the solution to the problem. The evil keeps after the children and Simon. The new danger to Simon’s life does have a benefit though. It keeps him close to the sexy Alpha that he can’t stop thinking about.

I discovered early on that there are some male male romances that do not work for me. It is the alpha beta male male relationships that never hook me. Gray and Simon have one of those alpha beta relationships. They have a sweet romance that works with the flow of their story. It is just not one that I got enough pleasure from. The Triad series is surrounded in magic and forbidden relationships. There are many reasons to give this series a go. I’m glad I did. I am sad to say that I will not be moving forth with it though.

    Sorry it wasn’t your type of book. I loved this book when I read it, but it is a bit of a love it or hate it type.
