Half Magic (Tales of Magic #1) by Edward Eager. Over the weekend, I read a lovely feature in Rain Taxi on Edward Eager’s Magic series, which inspired me to start rereading them in ebook from my local library system. I’m finding ebook to be an excellent format for these, because it means I’ll actually look up definitions – and Eager wasn’t afraid of flexing his vocabulary.
Knight’s Castle (Tales of Magic #2) by Edward Eager. This one jumps ahead 30 years from the previous book – it’s good, but definitely not my favorite of the series.
