Night Magic was quite a good book. Lyon did a good job of bringing the world and characters to life. I liked the characters, felt invested in them, and wanted them to triumph. The sex scenes were very well done :)

The thing is, I think this book could have been even better, for three reasons.

1. Although a good enough writer, Lyon struggles with show-don't-tell. I see a lot more potential if she would work on this.

2. The ending felt a bit clumsy to me.

3. Magic, magic, magic, MAGIC. He felt it, she felt it, they felt it, she felt it in her pelvis, she felt it in her nipples, she felt it when he kissed her, he saw it shimmering on her skin, he felt it emanate from her, she felt it from the other witches, they felt it in his tattoo, it called to him, it tore through her, magic, magic, magic. Obviously, magic is hugely important in this book, but it got to the point where I felt it was just too much, especially in the sex scenes.

But all in all, I definitely enjoyed this book and am looking forward to the others in the series.
