Mixing magic and street smarts, bounty hunter and P.I. Aster Night always gets her man.Except when it comes to...literally getting a man.

Thanks to a curse placed on the Chastity coven centuries ago, she can't get busy with anyone until she marries a man from the sanctimonious, boring, holier-than-thou Koda coven.

Yeah, no thanks.

Instead, she finds a way out of the curse on

I hate smut with a passion, despite what my reading history might say to the contrary, but within smut genre there is another category: Classy Smut, which I will admit to vaguely enjoying lol.

And thankfully Night Magic is one of these, with a genuine attempt at a storyline with reasonable world building, in between a helluva lot of hot sex.
And because of this I will forgive this book alot, it especially helps we only have three guys! I mean more than that things start getting a bit ridiculous,

Cliffhanger? NO

Story: I was honestly a bit underwhelmed by this first book. I didn't feel like there was much of a story. The perspectives of the bad guys in the story could have been a little shorter. There was a lot of sex in the story pretty much from the beginning. In the beginning, when I realized that Aster couldn't have sex, I almost gave up right then. Aster seemed to be pretty bad ass but I want to see

**My thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

This is a new genre for the author along with being in the reverse harem trope.

The book has been put together brilliantly, with different covens of witches all able to different things and magics.

We have Aster from the Chastity coven who is feeling the affects of her covens magically imposed chastity for unmarried women.

We also have Finn, Damon and Rake, members of the Koda coven who recently lost their forth, a

Night Magic starts with us reading about the main character, Aster, being felt up in an alley by a man she is interrogating before he succumbs to the curse placed on her coven thousands of years ago and falls unconscious. A good way to introduce us to the drive behind the main plot, but it did kind of turn me off the book a bit. I don’t mind a bit of heat in my reading material but when nearly every paragraph is about sex, lust or sex magic it does become a bit much.

Great ready for a wicked ride!

Thanks to a curse put on the Chastity coven centuries ago, no witch can have a sexual relationship with a man unless she marries one from the sanctimonious, boring, holier-than-thou Koda coven. After a lifetime of suffering this curse, bounty hunter and PI, Aster decides to take a chance at breaking the curse herself. But she unwittingly does so in close proximity to three Koda clan brothers who just happen to have lost their mate. With the newly released sexual

Good premise...development is lacking

I loved the premise, thought Aster was awesome, and the guys hot. But the characters didn’t develop enough, and no time was spent on their relationship. A successful RH has to have the guys devoted and then in love with the female. In Night Magic too much time was spent talking about the guys lost/dead mate Cassie, leaving Aster as a side thought. That is not a good set up for a RH. There should have been a better connection between all 4 of them. And we saw

Not the worst

Nice for a quick read but don't expect anything magical about this storyline. The steamy parts are just that but the romance is quite forced and the rest of the plot is only filler to carry you to those hotter places. Great if that's what you're looking for but weak otherwise. Sorry.

The more the merrier is definitely true!

Reverse harem. I had to think about that for a minute as I realized I’d read these books for years without giving them a name. Well, I had a few names for them. Sexy, sultry, passionate and delightfully… crowded. When I knew one of my favourite authors was writing in this genre I was thrilled and this, the first book in a new series, was full of all the naughty, naughty goodness.

Aster Night is a kick-ass heroine of the first order. She is a bounty hunter,

Get ready for a magical journey to Savior City. Night Magic focuses on Aster Night who is from Chastity coven and she works as a Bounty Hunter and P.I for Chasity Bounty. She is the best they have. Aster is beyond frustrated. Due to a curse from long long ago she and her coven are unable to have the pleasures from sex without being married to someone from the Koda coven. She can't imagine marrying a Koda even though her father was Koda. She makes plan to break the spell and relieve the curse ...more

Night Magic is the first book in the Savior City Witches series. I have read all of L. Valente/Lili’s books and this is definitely different than the others. It’s my first experience with S. King and it looks like I have another author to follow. The synopsis explains a lot about the story so I will make this quick. Maybe. Hopefully.

Aster is a bounty hunting Chastity witch who not only wants but needs relief. She feels like she is going to die from sexual frustration if she doesn’t do a spell

If you don’t like a lot of sex in your stories DO NOT read this. The entire story is centered around sex as a type of conduit for magic, good and evil. Or light and dark. There is hardly a page that goes by that doesn’t include sex. So now that the warning has been issued...

Very interesting plot.
Aster is a specific type of witch that had been cursed thousands of years ago to not be able to have sex unless they were married. They have a name that is very apropos to the curse - Chasity

I really enjoyed this start to a seriously hot and intriguing new PNR series. I listened to it on Audiobook courtesy of the author and let me just say, oh my! I haven't read too many reverse harem or paranormal lately, I'm a big fan of the Anita Blake and Meredith Gentry series both reverse harem but not with witches so this is a very cool new change for me. This book is sexy and steamy in a new way, a way in which real life can never really copy. The imagination, world building, storyline and ...more

Night Magic is book one in the Savior City Witches series by L. Valente and S. King. I've read all of Lili Valente's books and I love her and her writing.

I'm a die harder follower of L. Valente and when I saw that she had a new release I knew I had to get my hands on it. Night Magic is about Aster, a bounty hunter witch of the Chastity coven, has gone and broken a two thousand year old curse placed on her convenient. Now all she can think about is making up for all the orgasms she has missed out on, and the three Koda men that some how have implanted themselves in her heart and soul. Finn, Rake and Damon want to find their fourth's murderer but ...more

Hottest book I've ever read.
If I've ever described a book that way before, I take it back. I can't even fathom a book surpassing Night Magic on the steam scale. This book takes everything you love about romance and tips it on its head. If you're used to latching onto one favorite hero/heroine, get over it. This book features not one, not two, but THREE smokin' hot men and you will love every single one of them.
Even if you're one of those readers that skims past the saucy scenes (I don't

I loved it...

"Then Rake whispered a few words too softly for her to hear and dropped his lips to hers. She parted for him immediately, melting into the feel of his tongue sweeping through her mouth with tender strokes that made every inch of her, inside and out, ache to be closer to the man.
Whatever fears lurked in her mind seemed to disappear when he touched her, kissed her, like this. It felt so much better than she wanted it to.
'what was that about?' She asked, when he finally pulled away.

Let me first start by saying I am not generally a reader of paranormal romance. That being said, L. Valente is a must read author for me, and when I discovered she teamed up with S.

Thank goodness for Kindle Unlimited. I enjoyed reading Night Magic which is the first book in the Savior City Witches series. If you like reading about the characters in a story having sex and a lot of it then this book is for you.

I haven’t read a lot of books about witches and their worlds. I found this one interesting. There is a curse on the Chasity coven that had been placed centuries ago. Aster Night is in the Chasity coven and she can’t and she can’t have sex unless she marries a man from

Naughty...but oh so nice.

So this is an interesting twist on the reverse harem theme which is already an interesting twist on the multiple partner genre.

Aster is a witch from the Chastity coven which means no hook-ups. Until she figures a way around that with not one...not two...but three alpha men. Her "hook-ups" aren't all about the sex, but boy is there a lot of that.

This book is a great, fun read with lots and lots of naughty bits!! Can't wait for Book 2 when I'm sure we'll delve into even

A Review of Night Magic (Savior City Witches) by S. King and L. Valente

Aster - 5 Stars

I have to say, I'm not usually into paranormal books for many different reasons, but this book caught my attention from the very beginning. I do believe that there are 'beings' out in the world that most of us don't know about (or maybe don't want to know about). The idea of a coven of witches that are cursed with Chastity is intriguing enough to keep me on the edge of my seat, while the many twists and turns

Holy hot damn! What an awesome book! Aster, the chastity coven witch wielding some shades of gray magic inadvertently brings 3 mysterious Koda coven witches into her life. She was trying to free herself from the centuries long chastity spell... they were trying to find their murdered mate. Insta lust ensues. Now Aster is officially investigating the murder of their mate, but feels like it’s more than just magic bringing her together with Damon, Finn and Rake. This book is

The story starts off with Aster being in an ally with a man who is feeling her up who falls to curse and then becomes unconscious. The story would be good without so much sex it is like everything being done involves sex. I know this book is suppose to have sex but geez sometimes you can over do it when you are trying to build a story. Aster is a bounty hunter it makes her look real bad when you have someone she is chasing to feel her up. Really!! When I think of a bounty hunter she/he would be ...more

This book is definitely not with the sex and the male characters. That is what have me the obsessive compulsion to keep reading . I needed more from them and to see how this darkness effects Finn. The chastity coven seems uninspiring and I could really care less about their problems. Fortunate enough the story doesn't really need that info to be interesting enough for me to keep reading. The heroine is strong and that gives this a little more intrigue. I am optimistic about

Darkly Sexy

This book kept me interested from the first chapter and didn't stop. It deals with a serial murders done with magic. You have Aster who is a bounty hunter but also is an investigator. Her magic is in the gray area. Its neither all white but neither is it all dark. Each of the men have magic also. The best thing I'm going to say is get both books because this one does end in a cliffhanger.

Not for me

Didn’t realise it had M/M themes in it....do not into that! Plus after reading the 4th chapter I couldn’t read anymore....Maybe I should have given it a bit longer....but as soon as they started talking about an ex lover and how they were thinking about her while doing stuff with each other (no matter the reason!) nah defo not for me!!

Good Story

This book has a good storyline and I’m intrigued to find out what happens in book 2. However there were aspects I wasn’t so keen on like the lack of interaction beyond the main characters and I would have liked there to be more development of the characters that were mentioned.

Crazy hot witches, magic and sex!

Loving the start of this series! Murders among the witch covens. Demons and witches and sex magic. What more could a paranormal lover ask for? Oh yeah...a RH theme! Love it! Smoking hot when Aster and Rake got together! A bit dark when she was with Finn. Can't wait for the next book!
