For those of you who insist on reading the review on this one without reading the review for the previous books, this is a children's book, I recommend ages 7+ but keep in mind this is a very long book, and best read with an adult. It contains "Old English" and thus might confuse some adults, let alone children. To read the previous book reviews: Please Select the image for Magyk for book 1 and Flyte for book 2.
Now, onto the review! Physik, is a bit harder to handle than Flyte was, while the Witches in the Port Witch Coven are a bit hard to handle, and a bother or two might get you down, here we actually travel to a totally different time and the idea of having to deal with a cat that turns into a panther at night might very well scare some children. Please be sure to read ahead of your child so that you can anticipate each scene and skip over what needs to be skipped.
Sage still uses far too much Old English for my English Major brain to handle without having a spasm that doesn't stop on my face so I prefer to listen to the audio book (plus it is much easier when you have a three year old and school vying for your attentions!) So again I give it a four hearted review. Some people may disagree that it still deserves the full five hearts simply because the storyline is so well written and explainable that the spelling is easy to get past. I don't agree, but then again that is my OPINION! *Note, I say this because every so often I must remind my readers, that this is an opinions blog and therefore not a fact that this book can only ever be a four heart review, it simply means that is how I feel.*
Thanks for listening to my opinion!
