Review: Jude's Magic

Jude's MagicJude's Magic by Hollis Shiloh
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Contemporary romance, magical wizards, action, suspense, and two young men so perfect for each other that they are sure to capture your heart! Jude's simple magic has never been appreciated by his domineering father, his more magical brothers don't understand him, and so he finds himself alone and looking for work that will remove him from magic entirely. Enter Ferrous, a powerful wizard cruelly injured by the very kind of magic the sensitive Jude most fears.

Their instant attractions quickly develops into the deep and tender love young Jude needs. His trusting innocence, caring heart and tender magic is exactly what strong and confident Ferrous needs as well. But nothing in life is ever easy, and just as these two begin to heal each other's wounds, tragedy strikes. Will their differences keep them apart in the end?

Five stars for five reasons:

1. As usual, Hollis Shiloh delivers a sweet and tender love story appropriate for any reader who looks for depth of story and character development. Free of erotica, this book has the potential to appeal to readers of many genres. If this is your first foray into M/M romance you couldn't have picked a better place to start!

2. Well written and edited, Jude's Magic is professionally presented to the reading audience making it just as good, if not better, than any quality book purchased in paperback form.

3. Jude's tender heart and Ferrous' strength make each man attractive in his own right. Together they are magic on paper. Both victims of the world's cruelty before meeting, and so joyful in their discovery of love, this book's raw emotions brought me to tears more than once.

4. Although Jude's Magic contains a full cast of well developed supporting characters, Ferrous' cousin, Alphonse (the type of dark horse character everyone loves to hate) is especially well written, and adds to the story exponentially.

5. A short story that is complete from start to finish, not a series, with an ending that will not leave you hanging... only wishing for more. My favorite of Shiloh's book so far, when I reached the end I immediately flipped to the beginning and read it again!
