Author: J.M. Bogart

Genre: MG/YA Fantasy

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 is the first book of a trilogy.

Book Review

The truth of magic lies between faerie legends and story books. It grows in children and even adults, and is captured by the Liminal beings. They’re small, faerie-like creatures that harvest and manipulate magic into skills inherent in humans. They use a small amount for themselves in order to sustain their life forces. Bean, Pritt and Tissa are three of such Liminals. But with the human raceevolving, they have to find different ways to harvest magic and save their own kind. Their last hope is the power growing inside Nadia, but unfortunately Liminals aren’t the only creatures who want Nadia’s magic – more sinisters creatures are after it as well.

Liminal Lights offers a fun combination of fantasy, faeries, folklore and legends. The heroine, Nadia, is an intriguing character, and she definitely has a lot of spunk. The writing was great, and suitable for its audience – middle graders and young adults. I liked the concept, and the plot had a few twists and surprises too.

Author Bio

J.M. Bogart believes there’s a spark of magic in every person, regardless of age or background. Her upper Middle Grade novels are written with bright and imaginative youth in mind. She hopes to provide fun and appropriate content combined with challenging language and concepts for readers drifting in those precocious middle years.

Ms. Bogart spends her days writing, editing, and caring for her very busy family. She used to dream of the day when Mary Poppins would swoop in to help with the children, but now that they are older she wishes those chaotic days filled with giggles and sunshine hadn’t disappeared quite so fast.
