Review: Midnight Magick (Amber Lee Mysteries Book 1) by Katerina Martinez


Warning: Contains some mature content. 


Midnight Magick is Book 1 in the Amber Lee Mystery series; a paranormal new adult tale about a young Wiccan entering a world of real Magick - one wrought with equal parts danger and wonder.

A lonely witch, an alpha male, a mysterious stranger, and death at the doorstep.

Young Wiccan Amber Lee had been feeling the cold hand of loneliness around her heart ever since she learned her best friend Eliza was pregnant. Before the news, life had been about rituals, elements, and staying up all night watching movies. So when a mysterious young man enters her life and takes an interest in her, she can't help but see it as some kind of blessing from the Gods.

But a series of bad omens and incidents lead the young Witch to start wondering whether the gorgeous stranger's presence is more of a curse than a blessing. As Amber dives deeper down the rabbit hole she learns about the unseen forces at work in her sleepy little town, and starts to wonder whether or not she has what it takes to make it through the storm yet to come.

Midnight Magick treads a fine line between reality and fantasy, stretching the boundaries of real world lore and occultism to create a world so similar to our own we could almost touch it. Are you ready to taste the Magick?


Overall I feel Midnight Magick is a good read. It started off a bit slow, but keeps it interesting. Then it picks up and takes you on a ride around several twist and turns. There are plenty of surprises to keep you going and danger to keep you on your toes. There were a couple of parts that I felt took away from the story a bit, but that is just me. This tale is full of magic and danger with some hot and steamy parts on the side. We do get left on a cliffhanger with so many questions, but in the end it leaves you wanting more. Book 2 should be such thrilling ride! I can’t wait to see where this series takes us next. Take the plunge into this magical world and see where it takes you.

In this journey we follow the main character Amber into a magical mystery while she discovers a world she knew so little about. She has had problems in the past with love, but someone new has her thinking about the future. The problem is, there might not be one.

About the Author

Katerina Martinez is the pen name of a husband-and-wife writing duo living on the Rock of Gibraltar. By day Katerina (that’s her on the picture, by the way) takes care of their five year old daughter and three cats, brainstorming ideas and writing down story beats while Lee works his nine to five in a big office to bring home the bacon. But by night the pair team up to put their ideas together, and when their story is in firmly within their crosshairs they take to their keyboards and bring it all to life.

Pooling their individual strengths to create a single, unified force, Katerina and Lee vaulted into their very first series - the Amber Lee Mysteries, a Paranormal New Adult series - in September of 2014. Nine months later, they’re celebrating the release of their fourth book in the series, with plans to finish all eight books by Halloween of 2015. After that, who knows?
