A Distant Magic by Mary Jo Putney

It’s about time Mary Jo Putney gave us Jean McRae’s story.  Not that I didn’t enjoy her little tangent into the world of the Stone Saints with The Marriage Spell.  I did.  But, still . . . .

After a slow, or, at least, boring start, A Distant Magic picked up considerable speed, not to mention interest, upon the arrival of Adia on Santola.

I did not like the adult Nikolai upon meeting him (revenge abduction plots are a pet peeve of mine), but, as his character developed and matured, I grew to like him immensely.

Admittedly, I would have liked to know Jean’s family’s reaction to her unusual adventures (an extra epilogue, maybe, or an Afterward), but, still, I greatly enjoyed A Distant Magic and highly recommend it.
