A MINOR MAGIC BLOG TOUR

Title: A Minor Magic
Author: Justin Macumber
Genre: Young Adult 

Synopsis -
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. Along her journey, she meets a motley band of outcasts who not only know the secret of what happened to Earth, but also of Skylar’s true origin. Will Skylar be able to accept this fantastical truth? But more importantly, can her powers and raging heart be tamed in time to stop those who once burned the world and now seek total domination?

 Book excerpt -
Skylar's eyes filled with a flickering blue light as ghostly flames jetted from her palms, and her screams were lost over the roaring of the blaze. Instinctively, she shook her hands, slapped them against her legs, and then clapped them together to try and extinguish the fire. As her hands touched, the flames vanished. To her astonishment her skin wasn't burned. It wasn't even warm. Sadly, the same couldn't be said for Buster. The dog was a smoking ruin at her feet, one more pile of burnt remains in a world already covered in ash. Her heart broke as she stared down at him. Oh god, she thought. What's happened? What have I done?
"Oh my Lord, girl," a man said behind her. "What did you do?"
Skylar whirled around, her eyes widening in guilt even though she didn't understand what had happened, or how. "Henry, he jumped at me! I don't know why he did it, and I tried to stop him, but..." She fell silent, her thoughts too scrambled to know what more to say. Buster was a dog she'd loved and cared for ever since coming to live on the farm years ago, and without warning, he had attacked her. When she'd held her hands up to ward him off, blue fire had erupted from them and consumed him as though it was a living, ravenous thing. Nothing like that had ever happened to her before, and she couldn't rightly explain what she didn't understand.

In Minor Magic we get introduce to a girl name Skylar that discovers that she has magic one day and the couple she has been staying with for the pass 10 years doesn't like it one bit so they make her leave. She will go on a journey and meet some people along the way and one of them is a boy name Nathan. Nathan don't like the way his dad runs things so he runs away but once his dad catches up with him Skylar decides to stick with him. She tries to save Nathan and her self just to get kidnapped by his father. Now he thinks that she is working for the devil and wants to kill her. Right when she thinks things are about to come to an end. Next thing she knows a few people show up and save her and Nathan follows with her. Along the rest of her journey she will find out where she comes from and her magic. She will see things she never did before and there is a betrayal she didn't expect to happen.  The way the author describes everything is great and you can picture it in your mind which is awesome. I really like this book and hope everyone else enjoys it like I did.
