REVIEW: Madly by M. Leighton


Madly James is an average seventeen year old, for a princess anyway. She hails from Atlas, a land deep in the water that is magically protected. She’s working as an intern in the small town of Slumber when news arrives that a traitor has set a bunch of fairy tale spirits known as Lore free to awaken their descendants. It’s up to Madly to save everyone she cares about and humanity herself. Her best friend and a sentinel, Jackson Hamilton, are the only help available to her, and Jackson could cost her everything even if he helps her “save the world”. She loves Jackson, always has, so she’ll fight for hope. Hope that she can have it all – family, love, and her destiny.

I thought this sounded like a good adventure and love story, so I gave it a shot, not really knowing what to expect. I’m so glad I did! It’s a novella, meant to just give you a quick introduction into the world of Madly, and the efficiency with which that’s done is spot on.

We meet characters and learn a bit about them, we get a taste of the world, and we get a good feel about the current state of the characters in that world. Then we that all important conflict. The biggest part we learn is where Madly’s mind and heart are at, what the conflict will mean for Madly, and just the kind of toll it’ll take on her.

In Conclusion:

A wonderful introduction to Madly’s exciting and magical world, that absolutely leaves you wanting to learn more about her environment and her life. I absolutely recommend this story to any YA urban fantasy fan.
