Overall this is a beautifully written fantasy adventure that I would consider suitable for everyone, no matter their age. There is no excessive violence and no adult content. I would have no hesitation handing it to anyone at all, including a child.
Men simply do not kiss another man on the cheek or grab hands in a friendly gesture,
. least of all when it is a "commoner" doing so to a "noble"
Lest you perhaps, think French men greeting each other by kissing each other on the cheek is a prime example to the rest of the world and worth being emulated between commoner and noble, however brief the acquaintance.
Kelpies, though a water creature, is simply not a water fairy by any stretch of the imagination, even when the said Kelpies is able to shapeshift to any other type of creature, such as a horse able to carry three grown men whilst strongly swimming a lake to a far-off desert beach.
The continued aimless padding of idle conversations for the silliest of reasons, added nothing to the plot most of the time. I gained the impression this was done for the simple reason of increasing the word count of this book, Magic's Betrayal.
It was difficult to even determine what the real target market was for this fantasy. I guess some starry eyed middle grade teenagers. But even then credibility issues would place that somewhat in doubt. As it would even more so for anybody older.
All in all I found Magic's Betrayal a huge disappointment.
I want to state that I enjoyed the story, but every story has things that could be improved.
The writing was good, but what I do have to say is that I struggled with the "show" vs "tell" motif in this story. The entire time that I was reading, I felt as though I was observing what was happening instead of being in the moment. Now, this is why I gave the story 4/5 stars. I believe that it's a preference thing. Some people may not be bothered by the "show" vs "tell" subject.
The author has a good idea, and as I stated above, I enjoyed reading.
Beautifully written and lots of fun to read!

A good storyline that kept me page turning, sometimes reading when I should've been doing something else. This is my type of book, it is definitely read-worthy & very enjoyable.
I gave it 4.5 stars (actual star rating didn't allow for half) because my 5's are reserved for the likes of Lord of the Rings & epic stories of that ilk, so a 4.5 from me is a very good rating.
