M is for Magic
I recently read a book in a genre I don’t normally go for but it had been sitting on my Kindle for months and so, I looked into it. I’m glad I did. I was thrilled, saddened, enlightened, afraid and overjoyed – all wrapped into one. The book is The Magic Wakes by blogging buddy Charity Bradford.
Scientist, Talia Zaryn, is haunted by dreams of an alien attack on her planet, Sendek. Each dream ends with her death in the capital city Joharadin. She has spent her life avoiding the capital but without warning she is forced there to continue her work. Her fears escalate as her dreams intensify: the world will be annihilated by the Dragumon and Talia brutally murdered. In order to save Sendek and herself, Talia must reawaken and embrace her gift: magic.
I thoroughly enjoyed this story. Charity’s writing style is sharp and well crafted, which immediately pulls the reader into her world. The well-rounded characters played their part perfectly as the story unfolded. I am really looking forward to reading Charity’s next novel, which is hopefully out this year (no pressure).
