The Girl without Magic; Megan O’Russell
Young Adult; Travel Fiction; 264 Pages
Ink Worlds Press; 2 edition (August 30, 2019)
A land of pure magic hides between worlds, and Maggie is trapped in paradise.
Maggie is dragged out of a wizard’s battle and finds herself in a land of pleasure. But dark secrets taint the days of endless perfection. Secrets that could cost Maggie her life.
As the danger grows, Maggie finds an unlikely ally in the annoyingly charming Bertrand Wayland.
Seeking a chance for survival, Maggie follows Bertrand on a daring adventure and finds herself in a land on the brink of war. As a handsome hero shows her unimaginable beauty, his alluring ways draw her deeper into danger.
A deadly enemy approaches. His thirst for blood is stronger than Maggie’s magic. The fate of a world depends on which life Maggie is willing to sacrifice…

This is the second Megan O’Russell book I’ve read, and I so didn’t want to put it down! Ms. O’Russell has scored another hit with her most recent (January 9, 2018) release of The Girl Without Magic.
From the starting block, I wasn’t sure if I should be laughing or crying for Maggie Trent, as she stumbles and staggers her way through the first few chapters. (Incidentally, Maggie faces life much like I do – with a sarcastic “Well, this is great. What’s next,” way of viewing and tackling each obstacle in her way.
She adjusts quickly to her new life, once she realizes she isn’t dead, and decides that she’s going to stick to the lie that she’s not a witch. The adventures and misadventures that ensue had me breathlessly clinging to my Kindle to find out if Maggie and her accidental companions would win the day. (okay, so perhaps some of the breathlessness was the head cold I was fighting… The story was exciting, none-the-less!)
Hello and welcome to this review about a super new book, The Girl Without Magic by Megan O’Russell. Maggie Trent is a witch. A modern day witch, who is called by the Siren to the Siren’s Realm. Unfortunately, she has no idea how she got there, but a great adventure is in store for her. And I’m not telling. You won’t be getting any spoilers this time. Sorry, but, new book, you can find out what happens in the story. I will however tell you this, it’s worth the read. It gets five stars for a great story, captivating places, and lovable characters.
