Magic's Not Real was a pretty fast paced and short read, things go from normal to them learning about magic and everything out there very quickly. At times it felt a bit rushed as things happened so quickly after another I had a hard time getting a feel for the characters and the world. But I think this is a sort of prequel from one of the sisters her point of view mainly, so maybe this really is just a set up for the first book. At least that's what I think so far. This worked well as introduction, but it didn't quite hook me as much as I wanted. I am curious about how things continue and what is more is going on. Strangely enough the first chapter where they are in their element in their shop was actually my favorite part.
As this book was relatively short and mostly story focused I felt like I didn't get a good feel for the characters. I mainly did my best to remember who they were in the band and around that slowly tried to piece together their personalities a lot. But I did struggle a bit to remember who was who simple because we don't learn a lot about anyone and it was hard to remember who everyone was. I did like how the focus was on four girls, who are close like sisters even though they aren't, but they did grow up together. they seemed pretty close and I enjoyed seeing them interact with each other.
There was also some dialogue that felt a tad off? A bit stilted or unrealistic? I can't quite put my finger on what was off about it, but it just didn't flow natural. There are also multiple point of views, which I personally thought was unnecessary for such a short novella and it didn't really add much that couldn't have been told from Jenna her pov.
The world building is very minimal. The four sisters learn what's out there and there's a small plot line surrounding someone who tries to kill Jenna. But it's all pretty rushed and happens fast and gets resolved fast as well. So besides the basics, I didn't feel like I got a good feel for this world. I do figure that with this being a novella, most f the world building probably is reserved for the next book.
It may sound like I didn't enjoy this one, but overall I did think it was a fun read and I enjoyed reading git, but one the other hand as it was quite short and a tad rushed I just felt I couldn't connect as well with anyone and the novella didn't quite hook me as much as I had hoped. But while I was reading it, I still had fun mostly.
To summarize: This was a short and fun read. It feels a bit like an introduction to this series as it's pretty short, but we get to know the main characters and how they find out magic's real. I liked the set-up for this book, but unfortunately the book itself didn't hook me as much as I had hoped. Magic's Not Real is quite story focused and fast paced, even a bit rushed at times. I had some trouble remembering who was who and didn't really connect to the characters. The conversations felt a bit off and stilted at times. The first chapter were they worked in the shop was probably my favorite part of the story as that felt well written and well paced. I also enjoyed the bond between the four sisters and I am curious what more we don't know yet. I still enjoyed reading this one even with the issues I had and I might continue this series.
Jenna is being threatened by a man that she thinks is crazy because he is wanting something to kill vampires.
The Dolls find out vampires and more are real.
They meet Rico and his pack who decide to guard them.
Exciting with interesting characters.
I would highly recommend this book and series.
