I am finding it very hard to fit Black Magic Man by Ju Ephraime into one genre. This novel can easily fit into genres such as romance, paranormal, mystery and suspense. This amalgamation of many genres had me hooked from the very beginning and I didn’t want it to end. The mystery behind Black Magic Man, how they are living among normal people, and the story between the two main leads was simply amazing. I wanted the story to go on, so I hope the author writes a sequel or a continuation of the story somehow.
Black Magic Man by Ju Ephraime is set in the Caribbean island of St. Lucia where the paranormal and normal live together in a fragile harmony. Solange and Robert were happy. They had found love and their soul mate in each other. Their life together could not have been any more perfect, even if Solange’s parents think that she made a mistake. Her life takes a terrible turn when she meets Jean-Louis, a Black Magic Man. She has attracted the attention of this magical being and now he wants to claim her. She makes him feel the power he hasn’t felt in a very long time and he will not let her go, regardless of what he has to do.
I could not decide if I wanted to hate Jean-Louis or if I loved him. He is such a complex yet relatable character and at times I wanted him to get Solange and feel the love and affection he deserved. I don’t even know if I should call him an anti hero or not because I connected so well with him. Solange and Robert had great chemistry, they created magic, but there was a definite tension between Solange and Jean-Louis that was palpable whenever they came together on the pages. This is a magical novel, one that I would love to read again and again. Very entertaining!
