Suped Up: Strange Magic 1 by Michelle Mankin

Series: Strange Maigc 1 | The Magic Series
Format: Mobi
Release Date: January 22, 2015 
Publisher: Self
Source: Author
Genre: New Adult - PNR
Billy Blade is a hardworking, hard living, razor sharp musical force. Mysterious behind his dark shades, the rough around the edges Texan mesmerizes with his haunting harmonica and tantalizes with his dangerous looks and smooth country charm. His latest album is topping the charts. He’s the newly crowned King of the Bacchus Krewe. He’s definitely living the rock star dream.

Exotic Creole beauty Thyme Bellerose couldn't be more content. She has it all. An adoring grandmother. A handsome Tulane medical student beau. A satisfying job in the heart of New Orleans’ French Quarter. Her life is as rich as the ice cream she creates. She’s got everything under control.

But control is an illusion. Dreams can turn into nightmares. And now during Mardi Gras, otherworldly powers stand ready to shape their destinies in ways they could never imagine.

Shadow and light. Magic and mystery. Reality and myth. All come together in a place where rules bend and lines blur. Even those between life and death.

Please note: This is Part One of a Two part novel. It does NOT stand alone. Part Two is available for pre-sale exclusively on Amazon. Recommended for mature readers. 17 and older.


Better late than never! I'm a little "late" for the release day party but I made it just in time to share not only my thoughts about Michelle Mankin's latest project, STRANGE MAGIC, but also to share her epic giveaway below. Aside from her sexy rock stars, scorching romances, Ms. Mankin is a generous party host and I'll be loathe not to share it with you. 

On to STRANGE MAGIC!

Thyme Bellarose's story will have you glued from beginning to end. I love her spunk and stubbornness, this girl doesn't stand down and rightfully so. She's up for a long hard battle though and I'm anxious to see how she's going to go about it considering she's not necessarily well equipped to fight the people coming after her. Then again, its the reluctant ones that makes for great heroines so let's see what kind of awesomeness Thyme's going to be.

NOLA. Ice Cream. Voodoo. Music. Gods & their progeny. Crazy combo right but trust me it works! This little novella is the backstory to the main arc so it's imperative that you read this otherwise things won't make much sense when part 2 releases. Anyway I love STRANGE MAGIC P1 even if it ended in a big WTF What now?! way. STRANGE MAGIC captured my imagination, gave me a different kind of NOLA where evil hides in plain sight and all kinds of mischief happens in the shadows while  the music blasts and the alcohol flows. It's playful and dangerous at the same time and I love this new musical fantasy MMankin penned for us, I'm excited to read some more!






MICHELLE MANKIN is the author of the Black Cat Records series of novels. Romance with subtext. For many years she worked in the insurance industry as an underwriter. Somehow, the boredom didn't kill her but the hour and hours of looking at facts and figures provided ample time for her mind to wander. Black Cat Records in Vancouver provides the central backdrop for all of Michelle’s current novels. Love Evolution, Love Revolution, and Love Resolution are a Brutal Strength centered trilogy, combining the plot underpinnings of Shakespeare with the drama, excitement, and indisputable sexiness of the rock 'n roll industry. Things take a bit of a darker, edgier, once upon a turn with the Tempest series. These pierced, tatted, and troubled Seattle rockers are young and on the cusp of making it big, but with serious obstacles to overcome that may prevent them from ever getting there. When Michelle is not prowling the streets of her Texas town listening to her rock music much too loud, she is putting her daydreams down on paper or traveling the world with her family and friends, sometimes for real, and sometimes just for pretend as she takes the children to school and back.
