Andrews, true to form, serves up an array of scrumptious fantasy on different levels. Bonds of love will be tested, and trust crushed, readers will be on a constant "vague des passions". Kate reaches deep to discover just what her magic can encompass . Loss of dear friends and the meeting of new allies surrounded in a world where magic rises to all it's glory, just ROCKS! Kate shines bright, a gem, the prize, the ultimate warrior. Magic caresses readers as a magic word emerges, perfectly, at the precise moment. Readers see it coming, know that we will have it in our grasps, and yearn for it to be spoken. Say it, say it , we chant! Flying creatures and scientific study are in order, know your enemy and know him well. Dinner drama was never served up so deliciously. Andrews delivers a beautifully orchestrated ballet of combative engagement, so visual readers will want to take up sword fighting. Magic Rises permeates with mythology and lore from a vast array of sources,cleverly and superbly adapted to Kate's world. This is no scrimmage!
