    After Colleen reads a magical book she discovers she has magical powers But she s not a witch Heavens no, don t even mention that word And evolution, don t mention evolution eithercome to think of it don t mention gay Ohwhat was I saying Oh yeah, she s some sort of non witch magical being She is enrolled into a magical college where she is collared.no not in a BDSM way, in a magical way to protect her Luckily there are three hot guys who are willing to hold her leash if she ever After Colleen reads a magical book she discovers she has magical powers But she s not a witch Heavens no, don t even mention that word And evolution, don t mention evolution eithercome to think of it don t mention gay Ohwhat was I saying Oh yeah, she s some sort of non witch magical being She is enrolled into a magical college where she is collared.no not in a BDSM way, in a magical way to protect her Luckily there are three hot guys who are willing to hold her leash if she ever wants to go for a walkOK it was a bit BDSM.Apart from going for the occasional walk with a hot guy, it s just your usual college dorm room orgiesalbeit G Rated christian orgieswith no sex or nudity or any fun In other words, a bible study She goes on dates with one of the guys.he s a real bad boy, he took her to church And that s about it This book is an excellent treatise on the benefits of polygamy Kate Policani passionately advocates for a change to the status quo where a marriage consists of a man and a woman, moving to aliberal definition where a man can have six wives if that s what sails his boatand a woman can have three husbands if that s what puts the motion in her ocean

    In true Kate Policani style, Don t Judge a Book By Its Magic is highly original, quirky and light hearted In some respects it s almost a parody of contemporary YA fantasy.Colleen, an ordinary teenager with excessive gushiness especially when surrounded by lots of hot guys reads a book about a magical river running through Seattle Next thing she discovers that she can see it Before she knows what s happening, someone s got wind of it and she s whisked away from her parents to a special schoo In true Kate Policani style, Don t Judge a Book By Its Magic is highly original, quirky and light hearted In some respects it s almost a parody of contemporary YA fantasy.Colleen, an ordinary teenager with excessive gushiness especially when surrounded by lots of hot guys reads a book about a magical river running through Seattle Next thing she discovers that she can see it Before she knows what s happening, someone s got wind of it and she s whisked away from her parents to a special school for people like her people who can do magic Though they don t call it magic They call it lots of unpronounceable words Colleen eventually manages to get her mouth around the lingo, but I never did.Nevertheless, Colleen refuses to get her mouth around spells because, as a good Christian, she s morally opposed to it, and she won t cave in to pressure So she sets about doing her studies without the aid of spelling It s not only that that makes her different at the school it s also that she has grown up in the non magical world and she looks like a non magical person, something highly desirable because it s so rare Although surrounded by kids who are extremely beautiful she continually reminds us how hot the boys are Colleen finds herself highly sought after in the marriage market, something that s very much on these kids minds Colleen goes on a magical clean up mission, but instead of destroying the mistake , she brings it home with her Char is a rather adorable garbage munching creature that adds another layer of cute to a story that is already full of cuteness I really liked the concepts behind the magic The whole system is quite believable If you look at the world in a certain way, you can almost see the threads of magic that link everything together.You ve probably gathered by now that this is not your usual hard headed urban fantasy If you d like something different to the deluge of darkness we re offered by the mainstream, then this book is for you.All in all, this is an easy, fun read that I really enjoyed I believe there will be a sequel or two, which is great, because I d really like to get to know the boys in Colleen s life better The author has certainly set the scene for an interesting series I give it 5 stars and a place on the Awesome Indies

    The book up for review is DON T JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS MAGIC By Kate Policani Having read Kate s previous book I was excited to get a chance to read her latest one They say every book needs a hook to draw in your readers and make them read the novel through Kate did not accomplish that on the first page She accomplished it on the first, second, third , fourth and before you knew it the chapter had ended It has been ages since a book has done this for me As a beta reader and also a reviewer The book up for review is DON T JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS MAGIC By Kate Policani Having read Kate s previous book I was excited to get a chance to read her latest one They say every book needs a hook to draw in your readers and make them read the novel through Kate did not accomplish that on the first page She accomplished it on the first, second, third , fourth and before you knew it the chapter had ended It has been ages since a book has done this for me As a beta reader and also a reviewer for BookSneeze this does not come across my desk often.This book is adult fiction but is appropriate for YA because there is no objectionable content The main character is 18 Colleen who is your typical teenager lives in Seattle Only she is not which is uknown to her She has magic powers but not your ordinary run of the mill magic tricks that you see witches and wizards do, that is so not in the same realm.Finding a book in a near by library transforms her life as she knows it But not only that the people who are like her have taken noticed You see Collen is one of a kind One with powers who has lived in the real world as a Skupdyn which is a nonmagical person.Her adventures begins to unfold as she is enrolled in a college with like minded students.I am so glad Kate has placed in the beginning a Glossary of Terms in the front of the book It was a huge help for me to refer to so I could make sure I was getting things right.A great read, it does not take long to finish and another fine piece of writing by Kate

    After discovering a strange book imaginatively called The Book in her local library, Seattle high school graduate Colleen Underhill starts seeing visions Her first thought is that she has gone insane She soon finds out that she is broadcasting and gets into trouble when she won t say a simple spell to prevent this, because taking part in magic and witchcraft is against her Christian faith.Colleen is immediately whisked away to Seattle Pacific Regional University sproo to the students After discovering a strange book imaginatively called The Book in her local library, Seattle high school graduate Colleen Underhill starts seeing visions Her first thought is that she has gone insane She soon finds out that she is broadcasting and gets into trouble when she won t say a simple spell to prevent this, because taking part in magic and witchcraft is against her Christian faith.Colleen is immediately whisked away to Seattle Pacific Regional University sproo to the students , where she learns that Tximar energy flows through everyone, like the concept of Chi energy, but is like the old Magic eye books in that it can t be seen by everyone Reading The Book has unleashed this previously unknown power in her unfortunately, The Book is never mentioned after the beginning, which seemed a bit strange in hindsight It is working in the spirit realm, but even the professors are unsure what spirits which makes Colleen evenreluctant to use spells.What follows is Colleen s first person account of her first months at Sproo, learning about Teimnydduus and Txenar adjusting to the new rules, joining the Sproo version of a sorority, getting her first boyfriend, singing in the music show and working out how to deal with unexpected financial issues.It s well written with believable characters, a well thought through back story, an interesting plot and some very good imagery e.g her shoes resembled government building architecture It s a quick and enjoyable read, incorporating elements of the worlds of Harry Potter and Percy Jackson, but there were some problems The first problem is the language As in other fantasy books, the author has invented a range of words to describe concepts outside our everyday reality But these aren t words like muggle or hobbit that are easily written and pronounced in English These words look like a combination of Welsh and Anglicised Greek, words like Skupdyn and tiemnydduus I have no idea how to even begin pronouncing that Is the dd a th sound, as it is in Welsh, or a dd as it is in English words like hidden At one point, Colleen comments that many of the words were spit rich , indicating to me that the language is definitely Welsh The author does at least acknowledge this problem, saying The author spelled all the terminology in the book so outrageously It felt like the author wanted to mess with his readers by making up names for things that were impossible to pronounce There was a glossary at the beginning, but this is easier to access in a paper book than an ebook The story got very interesting very quickly, and trying to work out which T word was what was confusing and just slowed the story down.Did it work as a Christian novel Yes, and no While there was nothing anti Christian, it changed tack part way through, moving away from the spiritual aspect of The Convergence into a teenage dating and relationship focus There was insufficient discussion around whether the spirits or forces being used for magic were good or not, and I think this needed to be made clearer And then the book just ended It wasn t even a cliffhanger although it left a fair few things unresolved , but it wasn t a clear ending either I don t mind a series, but I like each book to contain a complete story arc, and to finish at a natural place This didn t Enjoyable while it lasted, but there was something missing.Thanks to Kate Policani for providing a free ebook for review

    The magic between two lovers is something that can light up a night and outshine the sun It s wonderful unless you don t know how powerful it can until you are on your way to college and you pick up a lone book in the library Then your world changes.Kate Policani brings to you in Don t Judge a Book By Its Magic an older version of the Harry Potter story Colleen things she has things laid out what will happen next until she picks up a book at the library She begins to read it and things aroun The magic between two lovers is something that can light up a night and outshine the sun It s wonderful unless you don t know how powerful it can until you are on your way to college and you pick up a lone book in the library Then your world changes.Kate Policani brings to you in Don t Judge a Book By Its Magic an older version of the Harry Potter story Colleen things she has things laid out what will happen next until she picks up a book at the library She begins to read it and things around her begin to change She discovers a special group of people that contain magic and she is one of them that they did not know about Sent to a special college for only those with these special abilities, she has to learn fifteen years worth of knowledge in just a few months That becomes impossible when she falls for one guy, is claimed by another, but the magic shows she is destined to be with someone else What is a girl to do Kate Policani has spun an interesting tale that doesn t quite leave you hanging but wantingin the next book which is not out yet I have to admit that at first I had trouble connecting with the main character, but that could easily have been because the last two books I had read over the few days before were so different Colleen is very unique and took me a few chapters to accept Once I did and the other characters appeared and began to grow, I settled back for an enjoyable read The interactions between Colleen and her potential love interests were comical, sweet, and sizzling.The scenes in this book is not adult in the sense of explicit scenes It is just not geared toward the middle grades and young adults as Harry Potter was This one has the potential of getting much hotter in that area, but right now this book is very calm when it comes to language and intimacy.I love the humor Colleen has and how she approached everything in life with it The relationships established in this book proved to be wonderful and full of potential in the next books.This was a fun read It is not too long and the writing is entertaining so you won t get bored Check it out

    This was a clever and funny, page turning read Once you get past the lack of vowels in the various names for magic, spells and witches that the Convergence have deemed as politically correct , the story continues with the unique twist on the basic witchcraft wiccan paranormal story Colleen is addicted to books, considers herself a Rubenesque redhead with hazel eyes, and is planning on relaxing during this last summer before starting at community college All that changes when she finds a bo This was a clever and funny, page turning read Once you get past the lack of vowels in the various names for magic, spells and witches that the Convergence have deemed as politically correct , the story continues with the unique twist on the basic witchcraft wiccan paranormal story Colleen is addicted to books, considers herself a Rubenesque redhead with hazel eyes, and is planning on relaxing during this last summer before starting at community college All that changes when she finds a book that opens a whole new world to her, and her hidden powers are revealed Far from being a smooth transition, Colleen is poofed off to the SPRU to begin her adventure Written with a smooth hand and a sense of humor that instantly endears Colleen to the reader, we are treated to her sarcastic quick wit that never quite leaves her even in times of stress Characters are introduced and developed in a way that both serves the plot and develops them with characteristics that are found in many people you would meet on the street In addition, the author has included photos from sites around Seattle that decorate the pages as well as provide an I didn t know that moment to readers who may not be familiar with the city This is a book that is perfectly suitable for a young adult reader as well as adults while there are romances, they are mostly chaste and reside in the realm of adoration flirtation rather than adult situations Colleen also is far different from other newcomers to witchcraft that we are previously acquainted with, as she refuses to speak spells preferring not to mess with the natural order of the world I thoroughly enjoyed this book, giggled often as I was reading, and will anxiously await the next steps in the story.I received an eBook copy of this book from the author for purpose of honest review I was not compensated for this review, and all conclusions are my own responsibility

    I m a fan of magic, as well as the author Kate Policani She s a self published author with some very creative marketing ideas, and I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to read her fiction.Her newest book is Don t Judge a Book By Its Magic, and it tells the story of 18 year old Colleen, who suddenly discovers she s part of a race of people with supernatural powers It s not magic exactly,like the ability to channel life forces But there are spells and tricks, all hidden in a secret I m a fan of magic, as well as the author Kate Policani She s a self published author with some very creative marketing ideas, and I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to read her fiction.Her newest book is Don t Judge a Book By Its Magic, and it tells the story of 18 year old Colleen, who suddenly discovers she s part of a race of people with supernatural powers It s not magic exactly,like the ability to channel life forces But there are spells and tricks, all hidden in a secret world in plain sight.Colleen is a relatable, likeable narrator, who I felt could be na ve at times I think this book safely falls into the new new fiction genre, since it is about college students However, this genre walks a fine line, and at times the book felt a little too high school For example, Colleen is boy crazy and has many sexually charged encounters with young men at her school, yet nothing ever happens It took me a while to realize all the characters are waiting until marriage before doing anything sexual, but in my mind college is a time for experimenting, so it would have helped to show this as part of the culture.I also found it interesting how faith plays a role in this fiction book In Don t Judge, Colleen grapples with whether or not casting spells is moral She feels it goes against her religion, and because of that she often goes head to head with students who feel casting spells is a huge part of their lives.This book manages to cover a lot of topics, all while developing a larger story about a potentially epic romance Kate Policani is a great writer, and her latest book is a fun, quick read As someone who loves reading about magic, I found it hard to put down Looking forward to the next book in the series
