Rival Magic by Deva Fagan

Antonia really wants to be a wizard.  But all her reading and learning have not given her enough power to be a good one.  The worst part is that the scullery maid has more power than she has even if she can't quite say the mage words right.  How embarrassing.

Atheneum Books for Young Readers and Edelweiss allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published April 21st.

When their master is accused of treason, they are determined to find out the truth.  The first thing Antonia finds out is that her friend isn't really a friend.  She is of the other party and they are on opposite sides.  But their magic is stronger together, can they get over their differences?  They will need to if they are to survive.  There's an evil man who is petrifying his enemies.  Can they beat him?

There's a lesson to be learned here.  We're all different and have different skills but if we work together it makes us stronger.  We can also accomplish a lot more.

This was enjoyable read and the turnips danced.  What more could you want?
