When I first started reading Boundless Magick, I was skeptical – it’s clearly aimed at teenage girls, and I’m a male in his mid-twenties. Turns out that I was in for a pleasant surprise.
Boundless Magick is Lowvee’s first novel, and it’s a self-financed and self-published Wiccan epic that veers between a magical version of 16th-century America and the present day on Block Island. It’s not bad for a first novel, and I can imagine the appeal it would hold for its intended audience.
Of course, with it being a self-published debut, there are a couple of typos and the occasional mistake in the layout, but it’s all minor and I regularly see worse from commercial releases – the main thing that bugged me was the author’s use of ellipses. She uses too many, and they all display strangely with spaces between the dots. . . like so.
But the novel is still a first-person tour-de-force, and Lowvee really gets inside the head of Abigail, the protagonist. Mind you, so do the other characters – quite often, she drifts off in to her own private thoughts in the middle of a conversation, only for the other characters to reply to them. She’s not voicing her thoughts aloud, so how do they do it?
Despite all this, it’s a cracking attempt at a first novel, and Lowvee’s 16th-century world is incredibly absorbing – the characters are three-dimensional and fully-formed, and you grow genuinely involved in Abigail’s education and her love-life. As a reader, you’re struck by the insatiable desire to learn more about Wiccan culture and the magical kingdom that Abigail is transported to.
This might be Lowvee Cole’s first novel, but I’m excited to read more – she’s got a promising career ahead of her, and I’ll be watching.
Made my train rides home from work a joy, even though I missed a few trains because of it.

We start off with a pensive king of a far away land witnessing the beginning of the Wiccan Empire’s undoing. Even though this spells out their doom, he remains unfazed and calm. Knowing what the only step forward is, he sends his most trusted advisor to retrieve a part of his past he had nearly put behind him.
Enter our main protagonist, Abigail. Seventeen years ago, Abigail and her mother were exiled from the life of magic that her father, King Aldred, revolved around. Abigail was magically binded to prevent her from using her powers. In the opinion of the Emperor and Council, this is an unbreakable bind. Only a powerful witch or wizard could find a way around it.
At the same time events are unfolding in the Wiccan Kingdom of Adehya, Abigail is in the stables of her home on Block Island with her best friend, Patrick. Somehow, she uses her willpower to move a trough to protect him, unknowingly set off a chain of events that could ultimately end her life.
As the story progresses, Abigail is required to move to the kingdom of Adehya and take a crash course of magical history and how to use her powers. Through her training and the growing use of her powers, Abigail is granted the fortune of sight by the goddess Seronia, which shows her visions of the future and the part she must play in it.
Boundless Magick is the first and titular book in a series of five books that chronicles Abigail’s journey from the very beginning discovery of her powers until what will prove to be a world-colliding end.
In just a few short chapters, Cole has been able to introduce us to an unusually large collection of already completely developed characters, yet still manages to shape and mold them until they are more awesome and complete!
Without giving away any spoilers, I just have to say:
Through world-class character development, an amazing multi-dimensional (ha!) plot line, and such a wonderful and mysterious world before her, Lowvee has struck literary gold with the Boundless Magick series that can only skyrocket from here!
I give Lowvee and Boundless Magick 5 out of 5 stars and look forward to book two in the Boundless Magick series, The Hopi Mask, due out in the Winter of 2014!
