Magic, Demons and the Hunter: Enchanted Ink Paranormal MMM romance by JP Sayle

"An intriguing concept to not only the fated mates trope, but an interesting take on magic." Angel read an ARC of Magic, Demons and the Hunter.

From the blurb:

Three men, destined to be together. Two believe their third is dead. The third doesn’t even know his mates exist.

Mondo suffers from a five-year-old hole in his memory and recurrent dreams of two men. On a mission to Salem to determine if demons are murdering humans, his life becomes complicated when the two men are no longer in his head but a reality.

Pierre is struggling. A shocking discovery forces him to make a decision that will bring him face to face with his past – and confront his own guilt.

Eli blames himself for not saving their mate. When he learns the ancestral crystal used in the traumatic events of five years ago is missing a piece, he goes in search of answers, only to find himself back in the same situation. Except this time he could lose everything.

Magic, Demons and the Hunter is book 2 in Enchanted Ink series where for a price, master tattooists can place a beautiful spell directly onto your skin. Want to be wealthy? Beautiful? Loved? You’ve come to the right place. Just make sure the price you’ll pay is worth it as the cost isn’t always in gold.

Angel's Review:

This is the second book in this shared magical series and comes after Kelex's book. I strongly suggest that you read that book first, then this one, or else you'll be lost reading this one.

I want to start of saying I've read Sayle's other work and have really enjoyed it, which is why I'm surprised that this didn't hit the spot like the other books have. This is probably just a me issue but I'll explain what my issues were with it.

There was a lot going on in this book, so I guess the pacing felt a little off to me, or different to what I'm used to from this author. There were quieter moments followed by action so it felt like there was too much at one time. I got a little confused with the switching of the POV's, too.

I would have liked to see them go on the dates that are mentioned. A lot of the scenes with them were them sleeping together and not relationship stuff, so I feel like I missed out on those parts.

Despite those issues, I did like the story. I loved the characters and am intrigued to see what is going to happen next.

The overarching mystery surrounding the demons and what their intentions are is interesting. I like to be kept guessing even when I struggle with HFN's lol. It's a love hate relationship!

Overall, a good read that will give you more information on the characters that work at Enchanted Ink, along with keeping that demon mystery open.

Janet's Review:

Magic, Demons and the Hunter is the second book in the Enchanted Ink series. I’d suggest reading the first book by Kelex first, so that you wouldn’t be lost.

The story takes place with a triad consisting of a witch, familiar and human. Pierre is a shifter, Eliphas (Eli), a mage and Raymond (Mondo) a hunter. Pierre and Eli mourn their third each year, believing him dead.

The world building in the story was started in Only Skin Deep by Kelex and JP continued it brilliantly. The story is fast moving and quite spicy.

Overall, a fantastic addition that has a HEA but also a cliffy that pertains to the overall storyline.
