They trusted her to keep the peace between the paranorms. They made a mistake.
Kennedy escaped the family business when she turned eighteen. Now, an ill-timed vacation pulls her back to The Rain Hotel, the only known null zone on the planet. It’s a place where vampires can see the sun rise and werewolves can avoid the lure of the full moon. And it would be the perfect place for a paranormal wedding…if the bride wasn’t the local alpha’s daughter and the groom the scion of a vicious master vampire.
With a sexy werewolf determined to sabotage the wedding and dark forces threatening The Rain, Kennedy’s life is thrown out of balance when she’s forced to confront a past she swore to avoid. Ultimately she must choose: will she maintain the stability of the supernatural world…or will she destroy it.
My Rating: 4 STARS
A Void of Magic is an urban fantasy about Kennedy Rain who is managing The Rain which is a sort of peace keeping hotel that is run by her family. There are all sorts of paranormal creatures in this book but the focus of it is on the vampires and werewolves who don’t get along well with each other but both need the hotel for different things.
I liked the set up of the world and I liked the description of the hotel and what it entails for the creatures that stay there. It has its on complex system which was interesting to read and even more interesting to read from a character caught in the middle of it.
Kennedy Rain is a human who manages the hotel and she has to deal with the paranorms who stay there. It took me a while to like Kennedy, she isn’t an unlikable character but she is very standoffish. We find out why that is as the book goes on but I feel I would’ve liked to have read more about her past with the hotel and her relationship with her parents.
I liked all the different character interactions and I was very intrigued by most of them. There is a mysterious quality to almost all of them that made me want to know more about them and theorise on their role in the overall story because their motivations are unclear.
Overall I really liked A Void of Magic, I liked the set up of the world and the description of the hotel. It took me a while to like Kennedy but I liked her interactions with the other characters and I’m excited to read more books in this series.
