Minor Mage by T. Kingfisher
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is a perfect example of middle-grade YA fantasy that doesn't step out of any bounds, doesn't devolve into a mary-sue story, and might very well appeal to any kid thrown into any task well above his or her ability.
Of course, the task must be done and that's the whole purpose of this simple journey, this simple coming of age story.
Fortunately, for how light and sweet and straightforward it is, it's also a very easy read.
This might be fine for little ones who are scared easily or adults who are scared easily or who just want to sit back and relax with something that is very much uncomplicated. We all have our go-to tales. Who knows? Maybe this one is yours.
