Binding Magick: an Urban Fantasy Novel (The Witch Blood Chronicles Book 1) Kindle Edition
Being left behind to hold the fort every time the world needs saving, sucks.
Being a witch blood means access to magic, but Carmella Hunter can barely light a candle with her powers. She can bake the perfect cinnamon roll though, and the patrons of Piccadilly’s favourite bakery thank her for it. Still it would be nice to be the one doing the saving now and then.
You know what they say right? Be careful what you wish for…
One attack of flu germs, one delirious episode later and she’s bound to a djinn. A seductive, arrogant djinn who needs her help to track down the monsters hunting his people. With his power coursing through her veins, suddenly Carmella’s not so helpless anymore.
Maybe this partnership won’t be such a bad thing?
But someone doesn’t want her digging, someone will go to any lengths to make her stop.
Urban fantasy with djinn, dragon gods, magick and a heroine with heart.

1 – I totally loved the main character Carmella because I got her instantly as soon as she opened with
“Nights out sucked. When had that happened? When had I become the comfy pants and slippers woman? Nah, clubbing just didn’t do it for me anymore. The loud music, the flirting, the excessive drinking … no longer fun. Love the getting dressed up bit, but an hour into the night and my slippers would be calling.”
I hear you girl. I am you.
2 - This is not your standard Urban Fantasy with vampires and werewolves. There are things that act a little like them, but it's so much more with Angel like creatures, Demi-gods and goddesses, Djinn (genies to lay folk) AND witching families, just to name a few of the interesting facets to the story. I love it when authors think outside of the box and add in interesting lore.
And 3 – This is the first book in a series but not the first book in this world. That always is a good thing for me especially if I enjoy the world I always want to spend more time in it later. Even though there are other books in this world, I think it read fine as the first of a series and I never felt like I was missing much from the other books.
Carmella is the nice girl, the one that will help you out when you are in a bind and the one who gets left behind as her friends go on to fight big fights and the man she loves dumped her to go after a powerful witch. Carmella isn’t powerful; she might be a witch but she hasn’t really ever been able to do anything with her power. So when something comes along and wants to hide in her consciousness to figure out why some of his people are being kidnapped she of coarse wants to help in exchange for some power. Well, that isn’t entirely true; Carmella might have been a little out of her head when she initially agreed to the bargain and she is a bit resistant at first but after some fun shenanigans she gets on board with it.
I loved that Carmella is a little lost in her life at the moment. The man she thought she wanted is in love with someone else, the job she worked really hard for didn’t really pan out and her family is completely absent because a witch with no magic isn’t exactly valuable to a witching family. She is a little down on her luck and at a perfect point in her life to flip the switch and change everything. With a Djinn in her head, she is picking up a little more confidence all the time. Which is good because I thought Carmella kicked ass.
This is a great introductory story. There are a few potential love interests for the series. One of them completely forbidden so you know that is the one I’m rooting for. A few extra special bad guys and potential bad guys. One big bad fought against but I don’t think it was the bad at the top of the food chain. And just a great introduction to Carmella and some of her friends and allies that I’m sure will fight all the forces of evil in the near future.
Just an FYI. I’m never bothered by language but the F-word is thrown around here and there in this. If you are super sensitive to stuff like that it might bother you. For the most part it was endearing to me, since it was like Bridget Jones swearing and so most of the time I laughed.
I’m excited to continue on with the series.
Audio Note: This is written by an English author and so most of the narration done by Zehra Jane Naqvi is very English accented. I totally thought made Carmella more adorable but I’m completely American and all accents are cool. I think she did most of the voices in this very well and I completely liked the narration.
“There are killers, there are saviors, and then there are saviors willing to kill. You’re a savior Carmella. You’ll always look for ways to save lives, good or bad, and in the heat of battle, when on mission, hesitation will get you killed.”

He sighed. He has a piece of you, and you must claim it back.
A piece of me? “Yeah? And how do I do that?”
By giving it to someone else.
Sod it. I’m not giving anything to anyone ever again.
