Publisher's Summary

Over the course of a single night, mystical fires tore through the sky and reduced most of Earth to ash. Ten years later magical fire burns again, but this time it's in the hands of a young girl named Skylar. Exiled from her adoptive home, Skylar must now struggle through ruined lands and religious zealots who believe she's an agent of the Devil. An even greater threat exists in the form of shadowy sorcerers from another world who covet her blood.

Along her journey, she meets a motley band of outcasts who not only know the secret of what happened to Earth, but also of Skylar's true origin. Will Skylar be able to accept this fantastical truth? But more importantly, can her powers and raging heart be tamed in time to stop those who once burned the world and now seek total domination?

    "Cool book"
    What made the experience of listening to A Minor Magic the most enjoyable?

    The story is very unexpected. I am not a huge fan of fantasy, but once I got hooked on this one I couldn't stop listening. The characters are awesome!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Minor Magic?

    There is a great little scene when the Protagonist is trapped in a store with some bad men. I felt genuinely afraid for her.


    What does Veronica Giguere bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her voice is just awesome.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not particularly, but overall it is a very well written story.


    Any additional comments?

    I will read this author in the future. I think I will try his horror next as it is more my speed.

    "Not a bad book, but didn't appeal to me personally"
    Any additional comments?

    A Minor Magic is set in a vivid destroyed world ("vivid" definitely not meaning "colorful" in this situation, since the world's covered with dirt and ash). The characters are true to life and intriguing in what their stories were before the events of this novel, and there are plenty of surprises in the plot and world that will grab your attention.

    That said, the book surprisingly wasn't for me. I can appreciate how well it's written, the love and effort Macumber put into it, but there was never really a chord struck with me in this book. That's not to say the book is bad. Far from it. I just never really got sucked into it or had my interest plucked in any significant way. This is a personal opinion and does not have anything to do with the quality of the book itself, which is actually a first for me. Normally, if I don't like a book, it's because it's poorly written or just plain bad all around. It was odd to me to have this sort of relationship with a book.
