Description

Tarian Xannon fights demons like the rest of us. 
This time, the demon just happens to be real.

Tarian Xannon stands to inherit the water artifact, one of four elemental objects that grants the user enormous power and responsibility. With it she’ll lead the secret magical Society, hiding in plain sight in the modern world. 
But when Tarian is blindsided by a demon-like creature who steals her blood, it launches a chain of events that marks the beginning of change for her family and the world. 
As Tarian struggles to contain the chaos, her world unravels. Each step she takes makes things worse. In her quest to save her family, she might end up destroying the things she tries so desperately to protect.
Stronger Than Magic is the first book in the House of Xannon elemental magic series. If you like urban fantasy featuring strong women using magic, skill, and courage to save the world one catastrophe at a time, you’ll love the House of Xannon.

    The story was predictable, but the characters were still compelling. The characters slowly evolved with their adventures, which is something many writers miss. Bottom line: I plan to read the second book in the series.

    It was a good blend of erotica & fantasy. It had a lot of depth & dimension you don’t find in contemporary/ erotica category which I appreciated. Because it is fantasy, I do wish she would have explained concepts better. I liked it a lot. There were a lot of twist & turns. Everything isn’t spelled out, there’s some r-reading/ inferences you have to make butlike I said it was a good blend of story & sex. I love a good story with romance to spice it up. So I really appreciate that this book had both.
  • Great book

    It’s so confusing and slow. I enjoys books, reading is my favorite pastime, but this book was the first book to make me fall asleep.

    This is a new author for me but she has a very easy to read writing style and has written a very hard to put down story. Good characters, interesting world and a plot that threw me a couple surprises and kept me reading to the end. I enjoyed it.
