My Review of Magian High by Lia London

This book is a strong fantasy read that blends the natural and recognizable drama of the high school experience with layers of magic and intrigue.  The central character, a young man named Kincaid champions the integration of the towns three existing high-schools.  Originally the schools had been made up of three predominate subgroups that had been kept separate; the normal people or jocks, the brilliant academically focused children and the madges who have magical powers.  As the schools are encouraged to mingle there are many challenges.  Like any subgroups in reality, the children have many ill-conceived notions as to one anther’s merit and acceptability.  This is only a small part of a larger series of events.  A sweet teen romance is skillfully weaved into a back drop of social instability and corruption that will ultimately put all of the student in a difficult situation.  This book is a great read for older children and young adults.  I thoroughly enjoyed the premise!
