Hidden Coven: The Complete Series by Kim McDougall comprises five novellas: Inborn Magic, Soothed by Magic, Trigger Magic, Bellwether Magic, and Gone Magic. The main characters are Bobbi, the incompetent witch who is inherently more powerfully dangerous than she guesses, and Quinn, Head of Security at a unique village hidden in the hills of Pennsylvania. Bobbi runs an ordinary wool shop until an irresistible magic experiment causes a fire. Time to learn how to control her powers, right? And where better than the nearby coven? Quinn does not welcome a wannabe witch, but his story and hers were entwined before they were born. Rules of magic have their own logic that holds good throughout what is both a love story and a wild rollercoaster of adventure where more than human lives are at stake.
Hidden Coven is the best boxed set I’ve ever read. Each novella stands alone, with a few unobtrusive reminders dropped in, but I didn’t need them. I read one after the other, constantly astounded by how the already well-grounded characters, the plot, and the suspense increased. Will Bobbi learn to control her dark magic and use it to defeat a demon, or must she allow Jane, mistress of the coven, to use the weapon entrusted to her by The Lady? Will Bobbi’s lover, Quinn, even survive, sick with mawr that allows the mildest infection to drain his aether, his magic strength? In Hidden Coven, Kim McDougall has created magic worlds that will captivate paranormal suspense fans and convert thousands of others.
