Dark Magic is a work of fiction in the fantasy, adventure, and action subgenres. It is best suited to the new adult reading audience and forms the first novel of The Chronicles of the Underworld series. Penned by Raluca Narita, this thrilling plot sees conceptual and well-known figures like Lucifer collide with new inventions and fantastic fantasy lore in a world where Hell is real indeed. Our lead protagonist is Primrose Titan, Goddess of Death, whose peaceful existence reaping souls is ruined when Lucifer finally manages to escape from his prison in Hell and unleashes chaos on humanity. Primrose decides to go it alone in hunting him down but finds she’s been assigned a frosty stranger to aid her in the form of the fabled Atlas Grimm.
Raluca Narita sets up an engaging new adult fantasy tale that has plenty of traction for an electrifying new series. The thing I enjoyed most about the novel was the chemistry between Primrose and Atlas and how their different personalities created so many sparks, as well as tension you could cut with a knife. This dynamic and entertaining partnership sits at the center of a fantastic plot, with plenty of twists and turns that keep you on your toes, as you never know where Lucifer will pop up next and what further chaos he’s creating. The concept of the hierarchy within the Underworld is well constructed and believable, with a great selection of darkly-themed magical lore and gorgeous atmospheric descriptions throughout. I would highly recommend Dark Magic to fantasy fans looking for their next exciting read, and I can’t wait to see where this series goes next.
