Mini Review: Light Mage by Laurie Forest

Posted by HelloJennyReviews at 9:00 AM
Title: Light Mage
Genre: Young Adult Fantasy
Author: Laurie Forest
Journey to the magical world of Erthia in this exciting prequel to The Black Witch by critically acclaimed author Laurie Forest.

Before Elloren Gardner came to possess the White Wand of myth, the Wand was drawn to another bearer: Sagellyn Gaffney. 

Sage’s affinity for light magery, a rare skill among Gardnerians, makes her the perfect protector for the one tool that can combat the shadows spreading across Erthia. But in order to keep the Wand safe from the dark forces hunting for it, Sage must abandon everything she once knew and forge a new path for herself…a dangerous course that could lead to either triumph or utter ruin.

Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Publication: August 1st 2018
Cover Rating: 5/5

Light Mage by Laurie Forest is a novella in The Black Witch Chronicles. This story is about Sagellyn Gaffney, the person who gave Elloren the White Wand at the beginning of The Black Witch. The girl who broke her Wandfasting vows and did some apparently unnamely things. This book is about her and her power and how she ended up with the White Wand before she passed it on.

Alright, so with this review it won't actually be much of a review only because this is a prequel book and it has a lot of spoilery information in it. I have tried to write and rework this review a few times now and each time I catch myself giving stuff away. Just know that this was a fantastic addition to The Black Witch Chronicles and it was extremely informative and gave a lot of backstory from before Elloren was given the wand. If you are reading The Black Witch or you have read it already I highly suggest picking this e-Book or Audiobook up directly after and before you start The Iron Flower. 

In the end, I found this to be a very informative novella. Most novellas, I find, tend to just be about side characters but the novella's Laurie Forest writes also have a lot of backstory that is completely relevant to the main storyline. 

Overall, I gave the book 4.5/5 stars
