Book Review: 'Karma' by Nadine Nightingale

Opposites may attract but witches and hunters don’t play well together. Unless they have chemistry that won’t be denied.
Karma is about a witch, Amanda, and the hunter, Alex, she once had a thing for. When Alex’s brother gets into life threatening trouble they come together to save him.
After reading the synopsis, the first thing I wanted to know was why this book was titled ‘Karma’? I found out. And wow! I got to say, the only way to answer that question would be read it from the start to finish. Stuff happens fast and readers won’t want to miss a single page.
This is the first book in the series and though the book had a bit of a cliffhanger. Also, the story involves a pedophile so for readers with a trigger for missing children should be aware before picking up this book.
Amanda and Alex are attracted to each other but her being a witch and him a hunter put a no-going-back full stop to the relationship, or so they thought. The book opens with them meeting after having gone separate ways. The sparks were flying off the page. It was easy to see that when they finally give into the sizzle it’s going to be epic! Having said that, it never really gets to the hot point for the reader in this book, maybe the next. As mentioned, this book doesn’t conclude Alex and Amanda’s story so, I have to assume I’ll see them again.
The background info on their relationship was very cleverly integrated into the book without making me forget about the main plot. The author handled the multiple plots very well. It was easy to read and understand. Also, the characters were very detailed and different. Amanda is honest to a fault and Alex is a bit macho but they balance each other well.
Magic, lost love, and new beginnings. Karma is a good start to this new series. It grabbed this reader’s attention and has me anxious to see where the story goes next.
