That Old Black Magic (Living in Eden #3)
by Michelle Rowen
4 out of 5 stars
Reluctant witch Eden Riley knows that codependent relationships aren't good, especially when she's possessed by a sexy but troublemaking demon. Darrak's physical form makes good girl Eden want to go bad, but the constant itch to use the soul-destroying black magic she's recently acquired might force Eden to explore her dark side in an entirely different way.
My Thoughts and Review
That Old Black Magic is a great follow-on to The Demon in Me and Something Wicked this time its is more on Darrak and his insecurities as he faces the possibility that Eden might well find a way to undo his curse--meaning that he won't possess her any more.Eden has been looking for away to remove part of the curse from Darrak as she wants to be with him in a sexual way without her black magic becoming more intense and risking her immortal soul.The curse lifting last for a bit but , something goes haywire and now Darrak is horrible pain that something needs to be done and she has to contact Lucas known as Lucifer to help her undo what she did.This is not going to be good to make a packed with the Demon from Hell .How can you trust Him ? He's Darrak's Arch enemy.
The problem is while undoing the curse Eden passed off some of her angel heritage on to him and now his body is fighting good and evil.This also is leaving Darrak more emotional, insecure and deadly sick.He loves Eden so much but, feel she does love him the same way he does or with the intensity the he does.Darrak fears losing her.
There is so much going on in this tale.There was lots of suspense building. Not all was as it seems. Danger lurks all around even those you trust are involved in this sordid tale.We had several surprises arise in this story that it mended all the other books together to give one conclusion to this tale.
The characters were engaging enough to make you laugh and sometimes cry.We learned what true love is and what its like to make sacrifices for the ones we love. A the biggest surprise of all can a Demon from hell have a heart after all!A very engaging read that made it a page turner.Darrak and Eden were not the perfect couple in the eyes of friends and family they had so obstacles that it made it so they should not be together . Just proves opposites attract !Each book in the series has been a bit better than the last. Loved it !
