Young adults will definitely enjoy the elemental magic aspect of the book, as well as the sweet romance between Kincaid and Amity, a Mage and Wiser who are both working to bring their two sides together. This is a terrific young adult novel with very likable characters, an exciting plotline that will keep you turning pages, and very applicable social issues that resemble many we have today. It is well written and entertaining enough for the young or not so young. Apr 12, Sara Gauldin rated it it was amazing.

Originally the schools had been made up of three predominate subgroups that had been kept separate; the normal people or jocks, the brilliant academically focused children and the madges who have magical powers. As the schools are encou This book is a strong fantasy read that blends the natural and recognizable drama of the high school experience with layers of magic and intrigue.
As the schools are encouraged to mingle there are many challenges. Like any subgroups in reality, the children have many ill-conceived notions as to one anther's merit and acceptability. This is only a small part of a larger series of events. A sweet teen romance is skillfully weaved into a back drop of social instability and corruption that will ultimately put all of the student in a difficult situation.
This book is a great read for older children and young adults.
I thoroughly enjoyed the premise! May 22, Michelle Isenhoff rated it really liked it. Intermingling seemed like a good idea to Kincaid, who worked to see it happen, until violent protests break out. But who is behind the protests? And who stands to gain from them? As Riley uncovers the mystery with the help of new friends, he decides mixing with others who are different than himself really is an experience worth preserving. In Magian High, author Lia London takes a fresh approach to magic and makes it relevant to teens.
The story contains a bit of romance, some humor, and a lot of personality, not to mention great insights into the power of love, cooperation, friendship. Very enjoyable and well done. Jul 04, Mikey Brooks rated it it was amazing. A Book filled with more than one kind of magic! I loved the creative approach of this book.
It took a well known event in history and remapped it into another time and place. With just enough suspense to keep me turning the pages I found myself lost in the troubles of Magian High. The characters are rich and Kincaid is easy to connect with. I'd recommend this book to teens and YA fans. It's clean, it has action, but most importantly it had a great story.
Jan 15, D. Driver rated it it was amazing Shelves: fellowship-of-fantasy-books. This book was a big surprise for me. I picked it up when the author was doing a promotion for it, but I kind of forgot about it. I was looking for something quick to read, and I saw this on my Kindle and decided to give it a shot. I really liked it.
It's a very unique urban fantasy. The setting of this story is a suburban town where magic is common. People who can do it are called Mages.
