The Thinking Woman's Guide to Real Magic - Emily Croy Barker

The Thinking Woman's Guide to Real Magic - Emily Croy Barker 

 

I get the feeling that Barker desperately wants The Thinking Woman's Guide to Real Magic to be the next A Discovery of Witches.  I enjoyed the latter and its sequel, but this one was only so-so for me and I can't quite put my finger on the reason why.  Maybe too many fairies and dragons for my taste?  But I was interested in seeing how the story played out, so I stuck with it to the very end...which was a set-up for a sequel, naturally.
