About Prom, Magic, And Other Man-Made Disasters
Before Tessa can confess her feelings to her long-time crush, he beats her to the punch and confesses his love—for her best friend, Maria. Missing the crush of her dreams and her stag wingman for prom, Tessa’s on the prowl to make it a night to remember, and for more than the humiliation. Determined to not be the only dateless girl at the prom in Small Town USA, she asks the new guy. He has all the qualifications of a fun date: polite, mysterious―pulse―but the way Sean talks about magic like it’s real could ruin the illusion. But desperate times call for desperate dates.
To make matters awkward, Maria insists on double-dating for the pre-prom dinner. When a wizard shows up and kidnaps Maria, things go from jealous to deadly before the cummerbunds hit the floor. He’s mistaken Tessa’s friend for a powerful mage whose blood could help him conquer his world, but he’s got the wrong girl. Using the wrong blood wouldn’t make Maria any less dead, and Tessa has no plans to let some whack-job villain from another dimension murder her best friend. Working with Sean, she tracks the wizard to his home, a land filled with strange creatures, stranger customs, and a five-hundred year grudge match between three nations ready to explode into all out war.
Tessa’s starting to think she has a chance against the wizard so long as she has Sean by her side, but his kind words and sweet smile aren’t what they seem. He’s the wizard’s son.
Reviews for Prom, Magic, And Other Man-Made Disasters
I really liked this when I read it back in march, I thought it was adventurous and hilarious and just really unique.
I liked Prom, Magic and Other Man-Made Disasters more than I thought I would when I started the book. It was a slow start for me, but once I got in to the story it was a ride filled with magic, adventures and a dash of fairy tale. Hoping for more books in this series.
I chose to read this book and all opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased. Thanks to NetGalley and Curiosity Quills Press!
This book was great. Tessa is an engaging heroine who, through a series of magical and mundane disasters, discovers things about herself that she never could have imagined. The first of the Serrfyrian Chronicles blends real world and fantasy realms together to make a book that is best described as a modern day fairy tale.
Tessa, who feels very ordinary, is swept into a world of magic when she meets Sean - the wizard heir of a parallel universe. When her best friend is kidnapped, Tessa follows Sean into his world to get Maria back. This book [...]
This book was a fun read. I enjoyed all the magic and how it was cast.
The MC Tessa gets rejected by the boy she wants to go to prom with. Then she meets a new boy in town named Sean. However Sean isn't your average guy. He's a wizard from a different land. When things get hectic Tessa finds herself in his different land fighting for her life and her friends freedom.
It did get a bit confusing here and there but I got through those parts just fine.
I enjoyed this adventure.
