A Flash of Magic ~ Review with Giveaway

A Flash of Magic
Tales of Ambia #4
By Allison Tebo

A Flash of Magic is a collection of tales that expand on the previous stories of the series. There is no chronological place for this book to fall as each of the eight stories takes place at different times, examining different characters. 

I especially loved the tale that introduced Prince Colin to Cynthia. Let's just say it involves rolls, butter, and antlers. Believe me, it is one that you have to read. And then there are several stories in which Burndee, our Reluctant Godfather, takes center stage either through his eyes or the eyes of another character. I won't say he is the most disagreeable fairy godfather known to exist, as I haven't met them all, but he is the most unique disagreeable fairy godfather I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. But beneath that gruff personality beats a heart of pure gold (fairy godfathers do have hearts, right?).

I loved all these short tales and the author's explanatory notes about the story behind the story for each and placing it within the chronology of the tales. And then there is Files, a truly annoying fairy who is the ultimate champion of hypocrisy and double standards. Get ready for a few laughs from his journal entries.

This is a fun book that you don't want to miss. It was an absolute delight to read (and laugh) through. And, of course, you need to read and enjoy the three previous books first to fully appreciate A Flash of Magic.

I was provided a complimentary digital ARC (pre-release copy) of this book with no expectations but that I provide my honest opinion. All thoughts expressed are my own.
