Luck IS Magic!

In this five book YA (I would say middle school on up would enjoy it) series (the short prequel, by another narrator is not included in the audiobook set to which I listened) we meet Meghan, her family and friends, various teachers at her high school, and many, many more. Legions. Oops! Not QUITE a spoiler.

When given an essay assignment to describe her worst day, Meghan realizes she doesn't HAVE bad days. She has been blessed with good luck her entire life and hasn't had to cope with bad hair or sodas splattered on her blouse or dropping things or . . . any of the routine stuff that happens to most of her friends. But it seems the realization of how good her life has been saps the luck from her and she turns into a walking (when not falling) disaster.

Well, this is a fairly terrific premise for a story already, but now we get to the fun part. Magic. It seems magic and luck are intertwined and all those fairy tale creatures are REAL! Enter the leprechaun and things go downhill fast.

Rather than discuss plot, I will simply say that if you like your adventures to have dragons and swords, unicorns and fairies, and innumerable other creatures of myth, you will love this series! Each novel tells its own tale but is a part of the whole and really best read sequentially. Or listened to. Voice artist Amy Hilburn really inhabits Meghan as the tales unfold, giving added urgency, mischief, and delight as needed.

Great series of books.

Great series of books. It is full of magic and has a heroine who is in way over her head, but continues try to do what is best for her family. The narration fits quite well with her voice as well.
