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.

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.

I would recommend this book to anyone that likes or loved scifi for sure. I am an occasional scifi reader and I can say the story was very well written. The plot lines and hooks keep you in the moment. There were a couple slower spots in the middle I spaced out on but all in all the book was full of action. Great read.
