About A Void of Magic by Sandy Williams
They trusted her to keep the peace between the paranorms. They made a mistake.
Kennedy escaped the family business when she turned eighteen. Now, an ill-timed vacation pulls her back to The Rain Hotel, the only known null zone on the planet. It’s a place where vampires can see the sun rise and werewolves can avoid the lure of the full moon. And it would be the perfect place for a paranormal wedding…if the bride wasn’t the local alpha’s daughter and the groom the scion of a vicious master vampire.
With a sexy werewolf determined to sabotage the wedding and dark forces threatening The Rain, Kennedy’s life is thrown out of balance when she’s forced to confront a past she swore to avoid. Ultimately she must choose: will she maintain the stability of the supernatural world…or will she destroy it.
Review of A Void of Magic
Kennedy was born into the Rain family. Rains have run the Rain Hotel for generations. The hotel is a refuge for paranormals. There are rules that govern the hotel, the people that run it and the people that visit it. The rules created a rift between Kennedy and the hotel when she was younger. Now, her attempt to stay away from that life has been thwarted by her parents. And so the stage is set.
Not being much of a YA/NA reader, I was a little worried when I started reading this book since the main character is college aged. However, Kennedy is a mature character that does not exhibit the angst of youth. Not that she doesn’t have any problems – she has a million problems. Between a job, school and covering for her parents while they are on vacation, Kennedy has way more than she can adequately handle at the moment. Setup for disaster. Maybe disasters.
Sandy Williams’ heroines tend to be of very strong mind. Kennedy is no exception. She has developed the mental ability to stand up against the werewolves and vampires around her – despite her youth and being human. I love this about her since typical paranormal fiction tends to depict humans as soooo inferior to the paranormals.
Two of the main paranormal characters are Nora and Blake. Both are thorns in Kennedy’s side, but both have their moments and could possibly become friends. Or more, in the case of Blake. It will probably take more than one book to determine their true natures.
I loved everything about this book – except for the ending. Yep, it’s a cliffhanger. Very few of the plotlines are wrapped up. The only thing resolved is my need to read the next book as soon as possible.
Thanks to the publisher who provided a copy through NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
