New Cutting Edge YA Fantasy

Standard

Shadowmagic by John Lenahan


I saw this book on an Amazon.com board for new book releases. I liked the fantasy angle and the concept. Lenahan’s writing style isn’t your typical fantasy writing. He has a real humorous voice that after a bit, grows on you. I do like the connection to the real world. The main character continues to miss our reality and wonders how to get back. A lot of Narnia comes to mind as the main character goes through a lot of difficulties to solve the adventure.

I did like the characters, the imp, hot-headed girl, and the banshee sidekick. There were enough character traits to make them enjoyable and want you to keep reading. The plot wasn’t so predictable, and the twists involved were fun. I enjoyed this book over all and would recommend it to any fantasy reader that wants a new take on what fantasy can be.

Available in Paperback and Kindle Editions.
Rated: 5 out of 5 stars

About Tiffany Turner

I am a teacher by day, writer during the evening and weekends. I've written a children's fantasy series called the Crystal Keeper Chronicles. I've learned a lot as an Independent author. I want to share that now through blog posts, interviewing fellow authors, and reviewing other children's books. If you don't see it out there, build the blog yourself. I'm hoping to create a resource for people to find quality children's books that don't always fall along the lines of mainstream.
