A Little Night Magic is about Liv...who desperately needs a change. Her life is in a rut, and so is her heart, because it only wants Tobias, who doesn't want her back. She's tempted to wish it all better on the magical square at Crazy Cousin Betty's Waffle House, but she knows from experience it's not necessarily going to work out the way she wants it to if she does. So, she decides to leave Nodaway for an adventure. Only the adventure finds her right at home, when she meets Davina. Suddenly, Liv's life is more than she bargained for...and she's soon back to wishing things would just return to normal again before she loses everything she loves.
March is one of the best...she writes humor and emotion with equal skill. I suggest having a box of tissue handy, because you'll need it. Liv and Tobias are wonderful and perfect for each other, and Liv's friends and the other characters of Nodaway make fabulous supporting characters. Don't plan on getting anything else done until you finish this book... I couldn't put it down and don't regret it for a minute!
Thanks for coming back, Lucy! A Little Night Magic is great addition to my Keeper Shelf!
Olivia is pretty obsessive as she focussed solely on her failed attempt at romance rather than trying to support her three friends who were going through some issues. The fact that she had been trying with Tobias unsuccessfully for three years suggests she has great tenacity but perhaps not much common sense. Even one of her friends revealing that she has slept with Tobias isn’t enough to make Olivia rethink her passion. I can’t quite see what Olivia or even her friend actually saw in him. Olivia’s intelligence takes a massive nose dive as the book progresses which is a shame as it made it much harder to empathise with her situation.
I liked the idea of how magical powers work but there simply wasn’t enough information about the magical organisations, potions etc. I felt that there was lots more needed to make the world building robust. Day Magicals like Olivia can only use their powers during the day while Night Magicals can do the opposite. Magicals also only have one particular skill and these range in usefulness.Read more ›
My other big gripe is that there is a whole lot of characters sitting around in the face of clear and present danger. And a lot of pages in which nothing of any import is happening; side characters we don't really know or care about get sucked into all sorts of drama that doesn't really make sense. Basically, a character named Devina wants to steal our protagonist's magic and, rather than just doing so, she instead launches into a ludicrously convoluted and indirect scheme that seems to involve everyone in the whole damn town. Which our heroine deals with by sitting around on her porch and talking a lot. If the heroine doesn't even believe the danger is real, how can anyone else? Without any real sense of danger or more than superficial characterization, things get really boring, really fast.
Lastly, not a whole lot of the plot made sense. The characters all have reason to keep their magic hidden and yet major magic displays take place all the time, in public...in broad daylight. Magic is presented as a statistically rare thing and yet, in this teeny town, there are two other magic people besides Olivia. But the biggest issue (spoilers ahead) has to do with Olivia and Tobias' reaction to the comically evil Devina.Read more ›
