A heroine I can identify with,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Master of Smoke (Mageverse) (Mass Market Paperback)
I loved this book, especially the heroine Beth. Sometimes I get sick of kick-ass aggressive heroines and want to read about someone who is easier to identify with. Although she is a fully realised character, it is easier to say why she is not annoying than to explain what I found so appealing about her.
At the beginning of the book Beth knew nothing about her powers and was somewhat confused. She felt a responsibility to use her powers for good if the situation called for it, but was neither belligerent nor reckless. She was neither paranoid nor stupidly gullible when getting to know the hero, and had realistic, three-dimensional relationships with the people around her. She is neither a victim nor a princess, just someone who reacts in a believable way to the strangeness around her.
I loved Smoke and found his developing feelings for Beth very touching. I don't understand why anyone who can accept the basic premise of the Mageverse series would have any difficulty in suspending disbelief in this story! This is my favourite book in the series so far.
