Book Review: Dark Magic + IG Giveaway
The Goddess of Death, the Grimm Brothers, and the Devil collide in a thrilling new paranormal fantasy series.
Primrose Titan is the Goddess of Death, an ancient deity who reaps the souls of the dead and rules the Underworld. All life ends with death, and in death, there is no happiness. Primrose knows this better than anyone, and her heavy responsibility has twisted her reality, purging her of all feelings for humans—or so she believes.
When the Demon King Lucifer escapes his prison in Hell and threatens chaos on the human world, Primrose must hunt him down. The High Court, a council of deities, is skeptical Primrose can handle Lucifer on her own and appoints the handsome yet icy Atlas Grimm, one of the fabled Grimm Brothers, to assist her. Strange, dark magic and supernatural creatures sent from the Devil himself stand in their way, along with political enemies acquired over the millennia.

Varies widely, any triggers and mature themes will be disclosed
TRIGGERS: Dark Magic includes mild violence, appropriate for ages 13 and up.
I really loved this world that the author built for this book. It was rich in details. It was like a movie playing in my head. Primrose is a great female protagonist to lead this story. Having another female of Death character is great. It gave me fond memories of Darynda Jones's Charley Davidson series, a favorite series of mine.
Strong female characters like Primrose will always be welcome. The battle between Primrose and Lucifer is nice. Although, I did feel like their moments interacting with each other were not long enough and far between. I would have liked to see more scenes with each other. Additionally, the "love interest" involving Primrose and Atlas Grimm was fine. When it came to the romance, it just felt like it was not necessary. Although, I am curious to see how the story all plays out in the next book.
