    This story certainly lives up to its title – magical indeed. From the outset we are plunged into the enchanting tale were Paradine learns of her true nature, her roots that bring her to the breathtakingly beautiful village, where magic rules in proper fairytale fashion . I loved it all, from the reading of minds to the transforming into animals, from fabulous descriptions to the believable characters, all with wonderful mystical names. Reality is grounded in the everyday movements and lifestyles of its inhabitants yet mystery and magic abound in the ‘list of lessons’ Paradine must learn to become a true witch. And the scenes to choose a broom or a wand and even a pet dragon are delightful. The adventure, as in any good story, is found with its ‘baddies’ who must be vanquished by the ‘heroes’ in order to keep the tranquillity of the village and its people. Lines such as, ‘...when darkness began to edge out the daylight...’ give a true sense of the author’s talent and I would firmly... More > recommend all of Jean Carver’s books to anyone who loves a fairytale of such quality. Only the first story of Paradine and I’m off to read the next.
