Crimes Against Magic by Steve McHugh (Spotlight/Giveaway)

Today we would like to share with you an urban fantasy from author, Steve McHugh, Crimes Against Magic!



Crimes Against Magic
by Steve McHugh
It’s been almost ten years since Nathan Garrett woke on a cold warehouse floor with nothing but a gun, a sword, and no idea of who he was or how he got there. His only clue … a piece of paper with his name on it. Since then, he’s discovered he’s a powerful sorcerer and has used his abilities to work as a thief for hire. But he’s never stopped hunting for his true identity, and those who erased his memory have never stopped hunting for him. When the barrier holding his past captive begins to crumble, Nathan swears to protect a young girl who is key to his enemy’s plans. But with his enemies closing in, and everyone he cares about becoming a target for their wrath, Nathan is forced to choose between the life he’s built for himself and the one buried deep inside him.


Crimes Against Magic is an Urban Fantasy set in modern day London with Historical flashbacks to early fifteenth century France. It’s the first in a series of books called the Hellequin Chronicles, which shows the life of sorcerer Nathan (Nate) Garrett.
Available from : Amazon.comAmazon.co.uk



Steve McHugh has been writing from an early age, his first completed story was done in an English lesson. Unfortunately, after the teacher read it, he had to have a chat with the head of the year about the violent content and bad language. The follow up ‘One boy and his frog’ was less concerning to his teachers and got him an A. It wasn’t for another decade that he would start work on a full length novel, the results of which is Crimes Against Magic. He was born in a small village called Mexbrough, South Yorkshire, but now lives with his wife and two young daughters in Southampton.

Lisa, I wanted to write a book that I wanted to read. Simple as that really. I've always loved mythology and history and thought I'd put them to good use. As for why magic, you'll just have to read it and find out. ;-)

Thank you all for your kind words, it's been a mad few months and the book has been received really well, which is all I could ever hope for. As for what's next, book 2 should be out in a few weeks. And then I may sleep again. Probably.

I hope that you all enjoy the book.
