Magic is Faster Than Light is not your mother‘s normal romantic fiction. Or, maybe it is if she‘s a fan of quirky scifi stories told by a narrator instead of stepping into the character‘s shoes and seeing the story firsthand. This is my first experience with this style of writing, and I must admit that author, James Hartley, has a remarkable imagination. He has created a story bound to capture the interest of those who like books featuring more than one point of view in a scene. Witches traveling via spacecraft to a new world in a ship destined to kill them, use their magic to save themselves and their family members and land the vessel safely. You don’t have to follow the yellow brick road to get to Oz, and you don’t have to rely on Captain Kirk to steer the Enterprise to a land of people covered with blue fur. Romance? Of course. How else can they repopulate their new home. Magic IS faster than light, and James Hartley proves it with his latest release.
