The Magic Wakes by Charity Bradford

Banner 3

Talia has a secret, one that will save her world and yet rip it apart. Only she can decide if the price is worth it. Scientist Talia Zaryn has always had visions of an alien invasion and of her own death. She’s kept it a secret, hoping they are nothing more than childish nightmares. But when her face in the mirror matches that of her dreams, she fears the dreams are prophetic. Talia must prove that life exists beyond their planet, Sendek; perhaps then people will prepare to fight. Talia’s work at the Space Exploration Foundation leaves no time for personal relationships, but Major Landry Sutton isn’t looking for a friend. He’s looking for a traitor. His ability to sense emotions convinces him Talia is that traitor until a touch sizzles between them. In an instant their minds are connected and they can communicate telepathically. Just as the two begin to trust each other, the invading force arrives. Talia and Landry must uncover the secrets of Sendek’s past if they hope to defeat these terrifying creatures. And Talia is the key—if only she can learn to trust the magic coursing through her veins. Trailer—

My Review:

I am not a huge fantasy fan, especially when I have to learn about a new world. I've already got a list of things I'm trying to learn (on my fifth round of failing at Spanish) so I hate to waste the brain space to learn about a fantasy world. That being said, there are a few books that have drawn me in such as: Harry Potter, Fablehaven, and Witchborn. The Magic Wakes can now be added to that list. As I started reading the book I had my usual thoughts, "Oh, great, another new reality with weird words I don't know." I was only a few pages in when my attitude changed and I fell in love with the story, the people, and the world. The hero is yummy and complex and the heroine tugs at your heart while still being tough and brave. If you love fantasy, you will adore this book. If you don't love fantasy, you will still love this book.


1st Chapter—







Author photo Charity Bradford has been a voracious reader ever since her 5th grade teacher introduced her to the world of books with Where the Red Fern Grows and Summer of the Monkeys. She’s the mother of four kids that keep her on her toes, constantly reminding her that imagination still makes the world go round. She lives in Arkansas with her hubby and children, and firmly believes that a smile can solve most problems. The Magic Wakes is her first novel.


  1. You made me cry! This was my goal and I'm so glad you were willing to chance a read. I wrote Talia's story with those in mind who don't usually like fantasy or science fiction.

    Thank you Cami!!
