Brinley has spent her life lost in her imagination, teaching bullfrogs to do gymnastics and pretending to be invisible. Now, when a magic bell from another world summons her across time and space on a journey to find her mother, she will discover real friendship, face true evil, and overcome her greatest fears in order to save the ones she loves.
The Mage and the Magpie is the first book in Austin J. Bailey's Magemother series: an epic middle-grade fantasy adventure series with witches, shapeshifters, and cliffhangers, and awesome kids.
i thought this would be an interesting story and it was so much more. enthralling.
This is a good story completely ruined by the auto-tuned/computer voice performance. It's not quite monotone, and yet there is a very odd, emotionless, quality to the read. It feels very synthetic. I've never been so instantly turned off by and audiobook.

We found this story through a Facebook advertisement, said something along the lines of ..... "if you enjoy Harry Potter or Percy Jackson, then you'll ..". We did indeed love this book, but it's definitely it's own. The author has a unique flair for keeping things moving in such a way you are content in the moment. I didn't find myself looking around the bend, pressured to figure out plot twists etc. Cleverly enough written but straight forward all the same. I can't wait for the rest to come out of production.
