Magical Intelligence by M.K. Wiseman - Book Tour & Review


Magical Intelligence



When you are a member of Britain’s first team of wizard spies, every mission might be your last. But as the dawning of the 20th century draws ever nearer, magic grows weak. Violectric Dampening, the clash of man-made electricity with the Gifts of magekind, threatens M.I.’s existence. And if that isn’t enough, they’ve now been discharged from their own government. Obsolete. Distrusted.

And now hunted by one of their own.

Myra Wetherby has always feared her so-called fits, strange visions of people and places that she cannot explain. It is the emotional manipulation, however, a strange empathic connection to those around her, which threatens her very sanity. A danger to her family, Myra runs away, falling straight into the hands of the newly ousted Magical Intelligence team. Who just so happen to need an ability like hers.

Which makes Myra one of them . . . whether she likes it or not.

My Review
Magical Intelligence is the first book in the M.I. series. I have to admit that the cover and the synopsis intrigued me, and I was curious to see how it would all play out. Unfortunately, I did struggle a bit with the book. It started off with a bit of a bang, but I was a little confused by everything that was going on. There wasn't much of an explanation for why Myra was having visions, or how she had traveled from her orphanage to the site of her visions (except she's magic, I guess) in a matter of seconds. The story does take a little while to get going, and things slowly start to make a little more sense once you get to a certain part, but I still wasn't really sure about some things.
It's an interesting start to a new series, and I know fans of fantasy books with magic as a main element will most likely enjoy it. 
3.5 stars.



Author Bio
M. K. Wiseman has degrees in animation/video and library science – both from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Today, her office is a clutter of storyboards and half-catalogued collections of too, too many books. (But, really, is there such a thing as too many books?) When she’s not mucking about with stories, she’s off playing brač or lying in a hammock in the backyard of her Wisconsin home that she shares with her endlessly patient husband.
