The Lost Art of Magic Reviews
I was captivated by the first chapter with so much action and mayhem so I assumed the rest of the book would be more of the same but then we went back to the beginning. I have to say I am not a huge fan of this type of story and I thought the start of this book to be a bit drawn out in places. The background of the characters could have been more fleshed out and all the back and forth between memories stopped the flow of the story for me. I would have liked more information on the prophecy. Blake and Destiny have very little interaction with each other until the last couple of chapters yet they felt this instant connection and it changes Blake's allegiances. I did not believe in them as a couple so I was a bit lost in the end once the story had unfolded. I think the story has a lot of promise but it it lacked something in the delivery. I would like to thank the author for giving me this opportunity of reading and reviewing this book.I was given a copy of this e-book in return for an honest review.
I got this book from the author, free of cost, in exchange of an honest review from my side!Firstly I would like to thank John Kovacich, author of The Lost Art of Magic for giving me this opportunity of reading and reviewing this book.I story was good but to be honest I can't say that it was great. The plot and characters were a little sketchy, it could have been flourished even more and the story was too much fast-paced, it could have been explained and described in a more detailed manner.I would recommend ya all to go through it once, it's worth a shot and you would won't be totally disappointed but according to me there was more scope to improve the story so I expected a little more specially after reading the blurb which was fab, I thought that it would be mind-boggling but it just came out to be okay, so I felt a little off about it. Hope to read much more fabulous books from the author.
Free copy in exchange for a review on Goodreads3.5 starsI was pleasantly surprised with this one. I liked the world set up; that magic is real but that it was lost/diluted due to a war. I first I was thrown by the starting at the end then going back opening of then book. I don't usually like that style on books or any other media frankly. But this format fit with the time travel plotline. I really like the characters of Destiny and especially her Nana. However, the other characters were not all the fleshed out and there was a definite lack of physical descriptions of the characters. I started picturing Destiny as African American, but it wasn't until a few chapters that the mom is describe was white. There was no description of what Destiny looks like other than that she is "pretty". Other than that frustration, I found this an enjoyable read and will read the next installment.
This is the second e-book I have received that was written by John Kovacich. And I loved it!It begins with a young girl called Destiny Boutin living with her nana in a old country home built upon a small plot of land poking up out of the bayou. The Boutins were no ordinary family and had magical powers,(whether they wanted them or not). This is a journey for young Destiny to discover her true potential and possibly change the delicate balance between the sorcerer's and witches forever...A fast paced book witch you can easily loose yourself in, with a romantic turn at the end.I will definitely be searching out any other books from this author.
I really loved the premise of this story, it had everything I look for in a great book. The characters were all very interesting and engaging and the plot wasn't lacking anything in my opinion. Blake and Destiny had this instant connection and camaraderie that really made me want to see more of them in the future. My only complaint would have to be that I wanted to know more and didn't want the story to end. Great book and I'm looking forward to reading more from this author!! * I would like to thank this great Author for the opportunity to read this fantastic book. I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.*
It was fun, but a little disjointed. I felt that the characters could have been fleshed out a little bit more. The ending also felt a little rushed. Like the author didn't have time or space to give the ending a proper build up and send off. I did like the writing and wish the author would have written more.
Of course I liked it
By far one of the best fantasy books I've ever read!
