Now that you know what to expect in the vast world presented in each of the books in the series, you need to know a bit more about this book itself so that you know how it all starts and if you wish to embark on the journey that is Magic Casement. As you start the book, you meet one of the first interesting characters in it, Inos.
Inos is the daughter and only child of the great King of Holindarn of Krasnegar. You find out a bit about Inos as you read about her boredom being alone as all she wants to do is to go and play with the children of the servants.
But, she is denied this wish as her imperious old Aunt Kade wants the best for her and wishes for Inos to keep her marriageable young princess stature and that she learns the social graces. So, instead of just playing and having fun with the other kids, Inos is sent off to the estate of Kinvale.
This is a place that can be described as a combination of both a fishing school and a place known as a matchmaking bureau. In this estate, she meets Sir Andor who tries hard to sweep Inos of her feet. Sir Andor is a man whose motives are yet uncertain and has a natural charm that has been enhanced by something called a “word of power”.
Another important character is presented in this book review of Magic Casement, a boy back in Krasnegar known as Rap the stable boy. Rap is a dear childhood friend of Inos who as he heads to adolescence realizes his true feelings toward Inos. The love between Inos and Rap is something that is being slowly revealed throughout the whole series.
As you see from this Magic Casement book review, the story in this book starts out very slowly, eventually revealing many of the characters and the plot itself. If you happen to like what you see in the first book, then chances are you will want to finish the rest of the series as they are all strongly connected.
