Magic is Rising
Advent by James Treadwell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I loved this book. Treadwell does a fantastic job of not only blending myth, legend and history—but of creating a new story altogether that is unique, fresh, and utterly a world of it’s own. The world the reader is absorbed in by the end is nothing like the modern day world at the beginning of the novel. I cannot wait for the next installment of this series. And while nothing like Harry Potter, this is the book of darkness and magic your mother warned you about.
Advent comes out July 3, 2012 but is available now on NetGalley for librarians, reviewers, bloggers, and booksellers.
