What if faerie magic is real?
Nadia discovers an ancient truth hidden by Liminals, coveted by Shadow Monsters, and protected by humans.
Somewhere, between faerie legends and story books, lies the truth to magic. It grows in children, matures, and is eventually captured by Liminal beings. These small, faerie-like creatures harvest and manipulate it, crafting it into the talents and skills inherent in humans. The rest, they keep for themselves in an effort to sustain their own life forces.
The human race is evolving, forcing Bean, Pritt, and Tissa to find new ways of harvesting human magic to save their own kind. Nadia’s power, found in her talent as an artist, is the last hope for these Liminal beings who find themselves caught between light and shadow. Liminals aren’t the only ones after her magic, so are the creatures who lurk under the bed, hide in the darkness, and go bump in the night.
This book appealed to me for one simple fact, Faerie magic. Everyone has their own special take on faeries and faerie magic and I was so interested in reading this authors take. Plus, the blurb for the book also appealed my interest.
The Liminal Lights is the story of fairy-like creatures who harvest a small amount of human magic in exchange for remolding it into something humans can use. Each human has their own special type of magic, but humans are not evolved enough to know how to harness that magic, so The Liminals help the humans to mold that magic and do this in a friendly way.
The Liminals are running out of magic that sustains them and it comes down to one child's unharnessed magic to help keep their species going. But there seems to also be a darkness that is working against the Liminals and it is up to one particular Liminal to save them all.
The lead up to when the child, Nadia, comes into her magic and the darkness is a bit slow, but I was so invested by that point that I just had to keep reading to see what happened. Very good MG paranormal book, excited to read more!!
