~DOWNLOAD ♭ Light Mage ♵ Journey To The Magical World Of Erthia In This Exciting Prequel To The Black Witch By Critically Acclaimed Author Laurie ForestBefore Elloren Gardner Came To Possess The White Wand Of Myth, The Wand Was Drawn To Another Bearer Sagellyn Gaffney Sage S Affinity For Light Magery, A Rare Skill Among Gardnerians, Makes Her The Perfect Protector For The One Tool That Can Combat The Shadows Spreading Across Erthia But In Order To Keep The Wand Safe From The Dark Forces Hunting For It, Sage Must Abandon Everything She Once Knew And Forge A New Path For Herself A Dangerous Course That Could Lead To Either Triumph Or Utter Ruin ACTUAL RATING 4.75 Stars I am in awe currently at Laurie Forest s ability to suck me into her writing yet again This series will be the death of me but like in a good way Normally I never give novella s anything above 4 stars for some reason my brain has a hard time justifying giving something 5 stars when it s not a full novel this literally only makes sense to me in my brain I am aware it is a completely ridiculous notion, Light Mage is the exception to this rule Although this is a novella it felt like a full novel.Sage s story was so engrossing and made my heart hurt for all the things she had to go through I was so attached to her as a character There is a trigger warning for Sexual Assault in this novella, which Forest personally addresses in the beginning with a note to the readers giving exact chapters for those scenes for reference and explaining how those scenes came from her own personal experiences I applaud her for her courage and bravery for including something so personal in her writing Not only was the writing fantastic, the plot and pacing were great If you re a fan of slow burn, gritty, high fantasy novels that deal with dark and harsh themes I would strongly recommend this series It s a thought provoking, and hauntingly realistic even though it s played out in a completely fictitious world Now if you excuse me, I m off to reread The Black Witch in preparation for The Iron Flower t was great to get the backstory to Sagellyn and her baby, and the White Wand with some on the Shadow Wand It was briefly touched upon in the novels but this novella gives readersof it I liked it and found it to be very interesting Pretty sure her baby is going to play a huge roll in the coming novel so I think readers of the novels in the series should check this one out before book three comes out in March My quick and simple overall a complete novella that does not feel rushed or shortsighted A great read and I honestly would say a must for series readers. RTC 3 This series continues to be completely addictive This novella which is really the length of some books gives us Sage s story which I thought was a missing element in the first book This also givesdetail on all the other cultures I m really glad I read this and am excited to go on to the second book. UPDATE SEPTEMBER 1 2018Rating 5 SupernovasReviewImagine living in a world where people are segregated based on their race Where religion has been twisted and turned into a weapon, aimed against other s beliefs Where fear of the unknown leads to hate and cruelty Where little girls have no right over their own bodies and are forced into marriage Not difficult to do, right Sage Gaffney comes from an extremely religious family, even for a Gardnerian She has been taught that being obedient and following the teachings of the Ancient One will keep her safe Safe from the demons that want to corrupt her people, safe from the vile men that hurt innocent girls like her Her bubble shatters when she learns in the worse way possible that evil thrives within her own people hidden behind mountains of lies.She is thrust into the cruel reality of being shunned by her family, her kind and all the other races the Gardnerians have hurt But she is not alone, she finds allies from where she least expects, compassion from those who she thought were evil, patient teaching from the shunned unconditional love from a man she should fear There is a lot of pain and heartbreak for her, but also a lot of friendship and love Sage is brave, compassionate, kind and she learns fast The kind of heroine I can root for easily she makes mistakes, but learns from them and comes out stronger in the end The love interest, Ciaran, is one of my fave male MCs He is different from many others, and I loved that There are a lot of lovable secondary characters, my absolute favorite is Rivyr, I needhim and his antics A must read by an author that has quickly become one of my favorite AUGUST 1 2018Once again I m stunned by Laurie Forest s writing.Light Mage broke my heart, and made me fall in love with new characters Full review coming soon. Good to finally discover Sage s story I hope we find outabout she does later in the series, maybe in the Iron Flower. I loved this story The worldbuilding is rich, the characters are well fleshed out, and the stakes are high. I meanis anyone really surprised that I finished this book in less than 12 hours on a work day Imagine living in a world where society imposes restrictions on women to trap them, accused them of lying about assaults and where ppl don t teach children about contraceptionwouldn t that be crazy Read with HEAVY sarcasm Loved it I am really hoping we get Sage Incorporated in the next book She has to find her beau As soon as I finished The Black Witch I devoured Wandfasted Then I re read Wandfasted because I just couldn t let it go Vale and Tessla s story is at the top of my favorite romances Then I re read Black Witch, then I read Light Mage And as much as I want to re read this and BW again I have decided to be strong and give other books a chance Sigh.Needless to say, I am obsessed with Laurie Forest s writing Her world building and character development are perfection And I love that I m not just reading fun fluffy fiction but being challenged to think deeply about the complex current issues of racism and gender inequality Give your brain and heart a gift and read this series
