Monday Review by the Book Dragon: A Fantasy of Friendship and More!

The Book Dragon has read H. L. Burke's Beggar Magic and gives it 5 claws!
My review: "4.5 stars for an imaginative tale of friendship in an interesting world where people are separated into Highmost and Common, and the mysterious Strains are more than just ethereal background sounds. Common Leilani and Highmost Zebedy form an unusual friendship and find more than either expected when Zebedy receives her assignment to Research Manor and asks Leilani to be her aide, including heart-pounding danger. Recommended!"


  1. Wonderful review of a very enjoyable story. You captured the key elements of the story without any spoilers. I would like to add my encouragement to your readers to read "Beggar Magic" as well.

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Jolyn! It was more difficult than usual to write a review of this book without spoilers! So many interesting elements, and some great characters!
