2.0 out of 5 stars Egregious Violence, 28 May 2012
This review is from: Dark Magic (Hardcover)
I made it through a little over 50% of this book but couldn't force myself to keep reading. The main protagonist is Peter Warlock and he's a twenty something whose parents were murdered when he was a young child. He was raised by several of his parent's magical friends who he still meets with once a week for séances. At the most recent meeting he'd seen an evil guy destroying Times Square. I suppose as a paranormal premise that's as good as any other but so many of the plot points are derivative of other popular writers. When the writer takes us to Ireland and an evil Middle Eastern leader is asked to murder a woman in cold blood to get jumped into the evil coven I hit a wall of disgust. What offended me most was Swain's horrible prose. (I know! I'm that shallow.) Maybe "Dark Magic" will appeal to teenagers though I hate thinking of them wasting their time with it.

This review was based on an egalley provided by the publisher.
