Review: I was approached to conduct a true and honest review of Magic's Betrayal via The Writer's Alley website. I was intrigued by the pitch and the cover of the book. I always enjoy a good story with magic and magical beings...who doesn't? 

I want to state that I enjoyed the story, but every story has things that could be improved.

The writing was good, but what I do have to say is that I struggled with the "show" vs "tell" motif in this story. The entire time that I was reading, I felt as though I was observing what was happening instead of being in the moment. Now, this is why I gave the story 4/5 stars. I believe that it's a preference thing. Some people may not be bothered by the "show" vs "tell" subject. 

The author has a good idea, and as I stated above, I enjoyed reading.

The cover gets a B from me. It has nice images. I felt that there could’ve been with it.
