Ohhh I loved this book SO MUCH The embarrassing truth is that when it comes to the genres that I write in myself, I am the worst, most demanding and pickiest reader All sorts of objectively good MG fantasy novels have left me cold over the last few years or just been abandoned by me after a chapter or two because I didn t care enough to keep going But this one With this one, I fell in love A FAR AWAY MAGIC has the wonderfully well rounded characters and emotional intensity that I love in good MG [...]

A tale of unlikely friendship, seeing people when they re invisible and fighting evil monsters I really enjoyed this Bavar and Angel are a brilliant team I loved Bavar s magical house Angel s relationship with her foster parents is touching.

Reading A Far Away Magic was an exciting and delightful experience This magical story is original both in writing style and content, casting a spell that allows us to become completely immersed I fell in love with the wonderful characters of Angel and Bavar, as I was carried with them on their journey Set in the modern day but with a fantastical twist, their problems and actions are completely relatable and believable, whether dealing with monsters, magic or grief The emotive descriptions and vi [...]
Beautifully written I enjoyed this book personally, although it was somewhat slow burning My problem with it is that I don t know many kids who I could get to read it maybe those with a passion for old school whimsy and magic I felt the same way about Wolf Hollow.
what a gorgeous cover though
