Today’s the day! After much waiting and anticipation, Allison Tebo’s newest book, A Flash of Magic, is now out in the world. I’ve followed Allison and her writing for years, and I’m excited to dive into my own copy of A Flash of Magic.
Allison writes delightful fairytale retellings set in the fictional land of Ambia. A Flash of Magic is the fourth book in her Tales of Ambia series, the previous titles being The Reluctant Godfather (Cinderella retelling), A Royal Masquerade (The Goose Girl retelling), and Poppy’s Peril (companion to A Royal Masquerade). I’ve enjoyed each of Allison’s novellas, and I’m sure that A Flash of Magic will be no exception.
ABOUT THE BOOK
Ambia’s most reluctant godfather is back. A Flash Of Magic is a magical and rambunctious compilation featuring eight stories with eight irresistible characters navigating their way through the oddities and the wonders of fairy tales.
The Tales of Ambia series continues with this charming collection of short stories and novelettes offering a deeper look into a magical land like no other.
Whether it’s an intimate look at Ella’s wedding day, a hilarious glimpse of Burndee’s holiday baking, or an explosive first meeting between a prince and his fairy, there is adventure for everyone in A Flash Of Magic.
