A young hunter-in-training must decide whether or not he wants to join the order of vampire hunters in the brilliant young adult urban fantasy, Wicked Magic: The Vampires of Oxford Book 1 by Margot de Klerk. Nathan has been training to hunt vampires since he was five years old. However, despite the warnings of his parents and trainers, Nathan has limited relationships with a few of the bloodsuckers. Nathan has been secretly training with his Uncle Adrian who turned in an ill-fated hunt several decades ago. When dark magic practitioners assault his girlfriend, Cynthia, and her sister, Nathan's life takes an unexpected turn, and he joins forces with vampires, witches, and a druid. Prominent members of the Hunters and the Council are hiding secrets with sinister implications that impact everyone. At eighteen, Nathan needs to decide his future, but with so many dangerous hidden agendas, who can he trust to have his back?
The riveting novel Wicked Magic by Margot de Klerk is the initial episode in the thrilling new series, The Vampires of Oxford. Filled with suspense and action, this is a phenomenal book that is spellbinding from start to finish. The storyline moves at a fast pace, building to a dramatic and thrilling finale. Well-written, it has a solid plot, well-defined characters, a perfect story arc, and a captivating storyline. The main characters, Nathan, Adrian, Lily, Damien, Cynthia, and Monica, are charismatic and lovable, and I look forward to seeing them again in the following sequels. Skillfully constructed, the story world makes it easy to relate to the characters and become involved in their lives. Far better than Stephenie Meyer's Twilight series, this book promises to enthrall fans of urban fantasy containing vampire heroes and heroines.
