Publisher's Summary

On a quest for domination, evil sorcerers from another land tore apart the barriers between our worlds, and the release of magical energy burned the Earth. Ten years later, a young woman named Skylar took control of the magic and used it to stop the sorcerers and seal the rift. Earth was saved.
Or, so it seemed.
Now, a new threat rises. Though the rift was closed, sorcerers from that distant land still live in our world, and the greatest of them, Embreal, has vowed to open a new rift. Helping him is Cassandra - a dark reflection of Skylar - who's devoted to him, heart and soul. Will Skylar's magic be enough to stop them? And, when she finally comes face to face with Cassandra, will she use her power against someone she so easily could have become?

Action Packed

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this book to all YA readers and those who like strong female characters. The main character has grown since the first book, and the addition of another strong female character, but this time an almost polar opposite to the main character gave nice contrast.


Who was your favorite character and why?

My favorite character was Cassandra. She is the polar opposite to Skylar. I like how bad-ass she is.


What about Veronica Giguere’s performance did you like?

Veronica does an amazing job of giving each character and the narration distinct voices. This makes the audio book experience much more enjoyable for me. I don't care for straight reads.


If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Not only magic can be broken.


Any additional comments?

A great addition to the Born of Fire series.

A Promising Episode

Where does A Broken Magic rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I liked the story well enough. Individual issues arose with repetition and word choice, but not so badly they distracted me.


What about Veronica Giguere’s performance did you like?

The narrator does some amazing voices, and her performance really helped the characters stand out as distinct from each other.


Any additional comments?

The book is ten hours long but felt a bit short. I think this may be because it feels like an installment of a larger arc; and not a complete story on its own. That said, I think it resolved the issues raised in the story well.
