Mystic Witch

Bailey Campbell renounced magic after a terrifying childhood incident following her father's death. But when deadly, faceless creatures pursue the snarky ex-witch, she must call on her powers again.  To control the magic, however, she'll have to master the rage that's burned within her since Bern Emmerich, a vicious sorcerer, murdered her father.

In the caverns beneath the house where her father died, Emmerich has escaped imprisonment in another reality to exact revenge on Bailey and unleash Hell on Earth.  Bailey battles the sorcerer with the help of Frank Demming, a powerful warlock-but does Frank's disturbing confession that he's watched her for years mean he's her savior or a stalker?

Bailey and Frank pursue Emmerich through the chaos and destruction he rains on Atlanta, Georgia.  But can Bailey trust her heart and her life to her mysterious mentor-and resist her own dark desire for revenge that is sure to condemn her soul forever?

5 Star Review of Mystic Witch from the Paranormal Romance Guild 5 *****STAR

BOOK: Mystic Witch

AUTHOR:  Mark All

Published by:  ImaJinn Books, Inc.

Content Rating:  M-Mature, Adult Content

Genre:  Paranormal, Romance, AdventureBailey Campbell has taken great lengths to leave magic in her past.  After the tragic and violent death of her father, she vowed never to use magic again.   Bern Emmerich, the sorcerer responsible for her father's murder, has escaped imprisonment and is forcing Bailey's buried powers to the surface.  Frank Demming has been charged with ensuring Bailey's safety, and has done so at a distance...without her knowledge.  Demming becomes Bailey's mentor, and perhaps something more, and assists her in tracking down and recapturing Emmerich.

Mystic Witch is a fascinating novel.  Mr. All has written mesmerizing characters.  Despite the complexity of Bailey and Demming's lives, they are still relatable and it is easy to become invested in their trials and tribulations. The main characters-Bailey, Demming, and Emmerich- are so well-written that I found myself engrossed within their story.  Bailey is a head strong young woman, who tries to maintain as much control of her life as she can, but the magic within her deems the task nearly impossible.  Demming is a warlock who, in an effort to fulfill a promise, has created many obstacles in the blooming relationship between Bailey and himself.  Emmerich is an evil sorcerer who is hell-bent on revenge for his imprisonment.

Mr. All held my attention throughout the novel.  The combination of magic, romance, adventure, suspense, and a bit of mystery makes for an amazing story.  I would recommend Mystic Witch to everyone.  I will definitely add Mr. Mark All to my list of favored authors.
