Fading Into Magic by Vone Savan

Madeline Morgan is a bright, artistic 17 year old girl who experienced loss at a young age and doesn’t have the most ideal home life. She and her best friend, Dara, visit a mysterious tent at the annual Augury Carnival, where they meet the eccentric Madame Anca. Madame Anca tells the girls some things about their lives that are spot on, and while Dara is skeptical, Madeline can’t help but be intrigued and hopeful that Madame Anca’s promise of true love will come to be. Enter Stefan - the new mysterious and handsome boy who just transferred to Madeline’s school. Will Stefan be her one true love? Or will Stefan introduce her to something much darker...something that brings the past to light, but just might help Madeline find courage as well as self discovery.

Fading into Magic is a modern day fairy tale. While this book is classified as YA, the author mentioned that it might be geared more towards middle graders. I wholeheartedly agree and couldn’t be happier that it is. So many YA books have such mature content that my “tween” isn’t allowed to read them. Fading Into Magic was perfect in that there were no sexual situations or bad language. After reading, I let my daughter read it and she absolutely loves it! There is also a great message for her generation dealing with forgiveness. I applaud Mr. Savan for including that message in his story.

Now, the kiddo and I just need to agree on whose bookshelf the lovely Fading Into Magic will reside.

Thank you to Vone Savan for providing a signed copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

  1. Great review! I adore YA books especially the "hotter" ones but I also like the more MG books too! This one sounds like an excellent read and now that my 13-year-old sister had gotten more into reading, I'll be sure to recommend this one. Other great ones that you might like if you are looking for MG book would be The Childe by C.A. Kunz. It is kind of like a witch/vampire type book but it is very clean and A Girl Named Willow Krimble which is like a contemp book with a little bit of a paranormal twist.
