The Bitter Seed of Magic by Suzanne McLeod

On the surface, Genny’s life seems ripple-free right now.  Finn, her sexy boss, has stopped pushing for a decision on their relationship.  The seductive vampire Malik al-Khan has vanished back into the shadows.  And the witches have declared her no longer a threat.  But unless Genny can find a way to break the fertility curse afflicting London’s fae, she knows this is just the lull before the magical storm.

Then a faeling – a teenage girl – is fished out of the River Thames, dead and bound with magic, and Genny is called into investigate.  As she digs through the clues, her search takes a sinister and dangerous turn, exposing age-old secrets that might be better left buried.  Then another faeling disappears, and Genny finds herself in a race against time to save the faeling and stop the curse from claiming its next victim – herself!

Genny’s an expert at ‘cracking’ spells, but when it comes to ‘cracking’ an 80-year-old curse she knows she’s in trouble.

Peer & Press Reviews

The Bitter Seed of Magic is another satisfying instalment of the Spellcrackers series.  Genny [is] a realistically strong heroine… believable and likeable.  There is no shortage of danger and excitement along the way and even a touch of humour too.  If you love urban fantasy and are a fan of sexy, to die for vampires then I can’t imagine why Suzanne McLeod isn’t already on your list of must read authors.


The Bitter Seed of Magic is a real page-turner with good characterisations and expertly drawn senses of time and place.  I read this in one sitting which has to be a good sign.
