's review

really liked it

I read a lot of books, and I truly enjoy most things Steampunk. Though Beggar Magic is what I consider 'lightly Steampunk' it brings forth a very unique idea... a town where mysterious music, called 'The Strains,' can be heard by almost everyone constantly. This music is perceived in different ways by different people, and can even be used to manipulate objects and help in every day tasks.
To me, 'Beggar Magic' is refreshing in idea and writing style, very well written and put together. There were parts of the story where I found myself frustrated with Leilani's friend, Zeb, because she can really be a brat, but everyone has that friend that drives them crazy but they love anyway, and she becomes rather endearing by the end of the story. Beggar Magic is a lovely blend of sci-fi, fantasy, friendship and romance that will appeal to a broad audience of readers.
