I couldn't put this book down that I read it within 2 days. This series is YA which I'm crossing my fingers that we get a kiss atleast please. Poor Ava is stuck between the family she was born into (witches) and reborn her vampire family. I'm happy she still tried to help her mother. In a Spanish household we're raised no matter what our parents say or do we must take care of them always.

I feel at times Ava needs to take a second to think. She always reacts first even in her fights and then she

I went into this saga not knowing what to expect. It's not my usual kind of read, but I wanted to step out of my comfort zone a bit and I am so glad I did. Ava's story is something that has consumed my mind. I'm so intrigued by this girl.

Ava is struggling between her family she was born into, the witches and then her new reborn family, the vampires. After finding out she is both witch and vampire. She's trying to protect her witch coven, even when they want nothing to do with her, this is becom

Dark Magic is the second book in the Darkhaven Saga. The book continues from the first book after some time period. Eva is still hotheaded and impulsive. She is dealing with a lot of emotions. She is struggling with the loss of her coven, being a vampire and her new magic powers. She is also dealing with training to fight and li

Ava Lopez just can't let go.

After living a few weeks with her new vampire coven, she still feels compelled to run back to her old witches coven, the one that kicked her out after she turned. It's difficult leaving a family that is the only one you've ever known for a new one. It's difficult understanding that your family does not want you anymore. You have to stay away.

That is the problem Ava is having in book #2 of the Darkhaven Saga. While she grows to learn how to be a vampire and get her ne

Omg I need more. I love the new revelation that has become of Ava. Finding out that not only is she a vampire but part witch and having the powers of both is amazing. Finally her new group is accepting her and she's finding her own. The electricity between her and Jasik is wonderful and I hope it progresses. The ending of this story was just wow. I can't stinking wait for the next part in this saga!!! ...more

Dark Magic is the second book in The Darkhaven series by Danielle Rose. Once again Danielle has done an amazing job!! Ava is still adjusting to being a vampire, trying to protect her witch coven who wants nothing to do with her from a threat, learn how to use new powers she has acquired and figure where she truly belongs. I suggest you read the first book in the series. This book is a fast paced page turning must read. I highly recommend it!!

This is the second book in the Darkhaven Saga and it is not a standalone. If you love vampires, witches and other paranormal stuff then this is for you. It picks up where the first book left off and it will consume you like the clouds of a fog rolling off the cliffs until you are fully enveloped. Ava is coming to terms with being a newborn vampire and being rejected by her coven, repeatedly. At seventeen, she is trying to do the right thing for everyone involved as there are rogue vampires that ...more

I absolutely adore the Darkhaven Saga. The Author kept my attention through every chapter.

Ava Lopez, a recently changed vampire, was part of a witch coven in Darkhaven. The coven kicked her out, after her transformation.

Now living with vampires, who once were her enemy. The vampires have changed her mind about them. Not all vampires like to kill the innocent, except for the Rogue vampires. The Rogue Vampires causes problems for both the witches and the Vampires (the clan of Ava). The Rogue Vamp

Dark Magic is another page-turning novel in the Darkhaven Saga. Ava and Jasik are still trying to figure out a way to stop the rogue vampires when Ava discovers new capabilities as a hybrid. The book keeps you on your toes and makes for a great read.

The book starts off at a suspenseful moment that is dangerous for both Ava and Jasik. These hectic and stressful moments bring about the realization of Ava's capabilities as a new vampire. Ava is unlike any vampire that Jasik and Amicia have ever se

Danielle Rose has done it again! I cannot get enough of the Darkhaven Saga. If you did not read the first book in this series, then you need to read Dark Secret or you will be a little confused to how our main character has landed where she is.

Ava is adjusting to her new life as a vampire. She has so many questions about all these new changes in her life and so much is happening all around her. This story and the action build up quickly in this second installment. She has these intense feelings

This is the second book in the Darkhaven Saga.
If you have not read the first book, Dark Secret, stop where you are. Do not proceed. Turn around quickly. You must first read book one before learning about book two.

I recieved this as an arc for my honest review

I read the first book and now I can’t get enough. I love the electric love between Ava and Jasik. It’s fire and it’s amazing. The way they are progressing and the strength that they give to each other is incredible.

After Ava finds out what could be the biggest secret of her life that she’s a witch and vampire, she’s protective of her witch coven. I do feel she’s a bit still on edge and she needs to think before she just goes right into a fight. Altho

Danielle Rose has taken everything we thought we knew about witches and vampires and shaken them all up to create a new paranormal world. I’m really starting to love all the vampires in Ava’s new family. They are supportive and kind to her and seem to really want her to succeed. Not much of a fan of Ava’s former coven at the moment but who knows where that will go. The author has a taken a young woman who is learning to be an adult and finding that all your beliefs may be wrong. Ava has to strug ...more

I loved Dark Secret and I loved Dark Magic even more! Danielle amped up the story with more action, suspense, and drama. Ava and jasik's chemistry intensifies and she is having a difficult time adjusting to her new life. She is also battling with herself when it comes to her coven family. They may have betrayed her but she feels compelled to still help them. She's a young, strong woman who is forced to grow up and face making hard decisions. She is still learning her powers and how to control th ...more

Waterhouse Press was kind enough to send me a copy of Dark Magic and I am so thankful that they did! I loved this book and this series so far. The books in this series are quick and fun reads. I still love the characters and the reveals that were in Dark Magic were amazing. I read this book in one sitting and I just couldn't put it down. My only complaint is the same as with the first book. I just wish things were a bit more flushed out and a bit longer. I just want more time in this story. I gi ...more

The connection between Jasik and Ava is getting intense. There is more fighting with rogue vampires while none of the supernatural can see eye to eye. This book is a page turner and was so hooked from beginning to end. All I can say is wow and that I can't wait for the next book. I want to know what will happen with Jasik and Ava. It feels like something ominous is coming but what? Ava keeps mentioning her Papá but what happened to him? I have lots of questions but in a good way. I can't wait to ...more

Dark Magic is the second book in The Darkhaven series by Danielle Rose and you must read these in order because they are not a stand alone. This book is a paranormal fans dream! Vampires, Witches and magic come together to give you one heck of a story.

If you haven't read Dark Secret, book 1, you must do that first to understand Dark Magic. Ava is a witch turned vampire, but Danielle Rose had something even more in mind for the seventeen year old when she wrote this. Ava is a very unique individual, forced to choose between her former family and new, and when she is cast out a second time by her own family, the decision is not hard to make. She wants nothing more than to show that both supernatural species can help each other out, but seems to ...more

I received an advance copy for my honest review! And OMG these books are sooo everything! Suspenseful, action packed, attention grabbing right at the start. Ava and Jasik are trying to figure things out between them. The vampires bring in a surprise person to help figure out what’s going on with Ava, and her coven continues to shun her. I need the next installment now, can’t wait to see how this ends and what happens along the way. Thanks Danielle for this series..
