Review of Insititue Of Magic by Tiffany Kahapea

Magic exists. Sounds unbelievable but it does.

I live in a world full of magic users. My mom and aunts are known to my kind as the Over Lords.

They’re most powerful magic users of our kind and they keep magic hidden from the humans.

Then there’s me, Danielle. Also known as a nopow which slang for no power because I’m powerless.

Going to school with powerful magic users makes me a target and my life a living hell.

I don’t even know why I still attend the Institute of Magical Arts. No matter how hard I try, I can’t produce an ounce of magic. It’s pitiful. Humiliating.

No one knows my relation to the Over Lords. I’m an embarrassment and a failure.

Or at least I thought I was.

I found out my birth brought on a vision from the ancestors, and they are scared. So, scared that they tried to kill me.

Luckily my mom and aunts kept me safe, but things are not what they seem.

I’ve been lied to my entire life. By everyone I know.

After one fateful event, the truth comes out and things become clearer.

They were right to fear me. Everyone should fear me, and they will pay for their lies.

I am Danielle Eshar and when I’m through fulfilling the ancestor’s vision, everyone will know my name.


My Review: 3.5 STARS

I picked this up because the blurb and cover drew me in, and was happily jumping into a world where magic is hidden, but very much real. Dani seems to be a nopow, and she’s made up for this by training hard in every other way. While the world building and the plot was engaging, I found myself wishing there was more time dedicated to some aspects. I enjoyed the story, but found it hard to like the build up to the ending, and all that went with it. It stretched my disbelief just a little too much and I felt like Dani was very immature. That said, it was a good read.
