Reviews of Wild Magic

I just could not put it down one day. I read it for three hours flat –  Katie C, age 11

The best book I have ever read!  Natalie S, age 12

The book’s greatest achievement is Finn. This irredeemable villain is fleshed out with such detail that readers will not be able to decide if he is good or evil – Booklist

Don’t miss reading this book. Like the piper’s tune, it is so real you can taste it – GoodReads

    I wish I was turned into a fox that would be great. but barkbelly and snowbone made me laugh 🙂

    Hi Stephen

    SO happy you love the books. I remember Kingsthorpe very well! Great fun.

    If a book is good, it doesn’t cost anything to have it published! It can be hard finding someone to take it on though. You can publish it yourself… At one time, you had to have hundreds of copies printed and that cost hundreds of pounds, but now – with digital printing – it’s possible just to get a few copies done. Try Googling ‘self publishing’ and see what you come up with. And send me a copy when it’s done!!

    The first time I looked at it, I read it. lOVED IT. I am working on my own book. I love reading, and my god when I finished reading Wild Magic, I spent nearly two hours searching online whether there was a sequel. There wasn’t. So far I have read it nearly 13 times. ( I’m taking note how many times I have read it )

    My favorite books:
    1) Wild Magic by Cat Weatherill
    2) Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan (spelling?)
    3) So basically, I like the series about Gods and Magic….. Example: The Lost Hero, The Red Pyramid, The Throne of Fire, The Son of Neptune. They are all books by Rick. =)

    You might be wondering how old I am. Probably in teens or twenties, yes? No, actually I am just a 12 year old with a dream of becoming an author.

    Thanks for writing Wild Magic, I hope you will write the sequel,

    age 12

    This book was AMAZING. I absolutely loved it. I fell in love with this book very quickly. This would make an AMAZING movie!!! I was thinking that when I was reading it. Thank-you so much for writing this. It gave me an amazing escape from everyday life! :3

    oh, I’d rather call him, Finn.

  • July 3, 2013 at 7:56 pm

    Your book was AMAZING!!!
    I LOVE IT!
    You came to our Monmouth library and I was there with a reading group in our class. Wild Magic is one of my favourite books and I cant wait to read your other books, I’m hoping to get them so I can read them when we go to France this summer.
    It would make an awesome movie! My favourite scene was when everyone got turned into animals by Finn but I also liked it at the end because it was very happy!!!

    Thank you for writing this book it was GREAT!

    i was there at the JLF (Jaipur literature Festival), i am one of the girls who was sitting in the front row, the maroon blazer (though you won’t remember it) i was there at your session and i definitely love your books, which actually lets my imagination fly, taking me a different world. you are fantastic. i always loved reading books, and the genre you write in, is just perfect.

    But what’s just brilliant, is your personality. the way you tell stories and even my friends were also appreciating you, the story of a cat artist, then the deadly vine. It was my first experience to JLF and you made it special. Thank you

  • February 21, 2015 at 7:10 pm

    Oh – thank you! I loved that session too 🙂

  • February 21, 2015 at 7:11 pm

    I’m working on it, Josie 🙂
