It was a little bit open-ended for my taste, but not in a terrible cliffhanger way. It was either a less than fabulous last chapter or a fabulous way to leave the door open for another book set in this universe; who knows? Either way, the characters, dialogue, and style of MAGIC'S CHILD are all great, it's well worth reading, and I'm looking forward to reading more from Justine Larbalestier

Magic or Madness is about fifteen-year-old Reason Cansino. Magic or Madness Excerpt.

Magic or Madness is about fifteen-year-old Reason Cansino. Reason’s lived all her life in the outback with her mother, Sarafina, on the run from her evil grandmother, Esmeralda. Esmeralda believes in magic and practices horrifying dark rituals. But when Sarafina suffers a mental breakdown, Reason is sent to the one place she fears most-Esmeralda’s house in Sydney. Nothing about the house or Esmeralda is what Reason expected. For the first time she finds herself questioning her mother’s teachings.

I recall reading some . Hinton, but not much else. The "Magic or Madness" series by Justine Larbalestier is one of the best fantasy trilogies I've read; YA or not. All of the books are well-paced, exciting, and feature well-drawn, believable characters. The story focuses on 15-year-old Reason Cansino who discovers very suddenly that magic is real.

This paper explores the representation of magic and madness in Justine Larbalestier’s Magic or Madness .

This paper explores the representation of magic and madness in Justine Larbalestier’s Magic or Madness trilogy (2005–2007). While, at times, the trilogy challenges the ability/disability binary schism, the narrative closure reaffirms dualistic constructions of reason/madness, ability/disability, reality/fantasy and masculine/feminine. Thus, rather than redressing social attitudes towards mental illness and critiquing normative constructions of disability and the other, Larbalestier’s trilogy reaffirms dualistic and normative constructions of mental illness.

It was released in 2006. When a golem pulls Reason into New York, she calls Danny Galeano, Jay-Tee's eighteen-year-old brother, for help. Danny allows Reason to stay with him while she tries to trace the golem, although her feelings for him grow until she eventually sleeps with him, despite Danny continually saying that it is not right

I read the first book and was expecting something exciting. I enjoyed the series but sometimes her wordy descriptions of scenes really annoyed me.

If you don't mind authors that describe scenes to the minute details and take two or three pages to describe a room you would probably love this series. Personally if there is an action or something happening I want to continue the pace and not slow down by having the description of someone's face or how they are feeling with specific details which really tell you nothing of what is going on.

This is certainly a series which I will not read a second time and will be selling the books back or donating them. If you find it at your local library I suggest you check it out but save your money to buy other titles like Oracles of Delphi Keep, The Host, The Ranger's Apprentice's Series, The Brotherhood Band Series, The Magician's Trilogy, Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, The Fablehaven series, I am Number Four Series or any number of other series which may appeal to young readers.

Australian author Justine Larbalestier's first novel, Magic or Madness, challenged Reason - that is, to say, a teenage girl named Reason who spent her life with her cheery mother, until her lovely mother went a little mad. Reason realized that the stories her mom told her were true. Magic exists, and it runs through the veins of all of the women in her family. Either they use it and die young or they repress it and go mad.

Her grandmother, who is depicted as a villain in all of her mother's stories, takes Reason in when she has no other place to go. Reason then meets her gran's neighbor, a boy her own age, and Jay-Tee, who lives in New York - which magically appears outside of her grandmother's door. The story continued in Magic Lessons, when the stakes were raised and the powers of the main characters tested.

Now the final chapter in the Magic or Madness trilogy is here: Magic's Child. The title itself is a huge spoiler, obviously. I recommend that you read the trilogy in the proper order for the ultimate impact.

Each character gets his or her moment in the spotlight here as the story bounces back and forth between locations and viewpoints. I enjoyed Reason's travels around the world, confirming the presence of other doors and introducing her to another generation of magic-users. (Can you say spinoff?) I found myself liking Jay-Tee more and more as the story progressed. Even Sarafina has a memorable scene in which she creates butterflies. Such a childlike innocence about her then, making her greedy demeanor and evil actions only a short while later all the more scary.

Magic's Child pushes Reason's sanity and strength to the brink. Will she go past the point of no return? Has she any reason to stick around? Find out by reading the book, then share the magic of Reason's world and Larbalestier's writing with other fantasy fans.
At the start of this wonderful conclusion to a great fantasy trilogy, Reason Cansino is a lot of things most fifteen year olds aren't. She's magic. She's pregnant. And she may or may not be entirely human.

In this continuation of Reason's story, she is falling more and more deeply into the strange, ancient, and inhuman power given to her by Raul Cansino. She is becoming more and more scarily powerful--but she's giving up her humanity (and maybe that of her unborn child) for that power. She won't die young like so many magic-wielders who use their powers unwisely, and neither will she go crazy and end up in the loony-bin with her mother.

But is giving up her humanity worth it?

MAGIC'S CHILD is strictly a continuation of an already begun story. It is not a story within itself, really, and, as such, should only be picked up by those who have read the first two parts of the trilogy (Magic or Madness (Magic or Madness Trilogy) and Magic Lessons (Magic or Madness Trilogy)). If you haven't read those, well, they're highly recommended, as well!

Justine Larbalestier's third installment in the MAGIC OR MADNESS trilogy is a good conclusion to the story, one that will have readers racing through it as fast as possible. It was a little bit open-ended for my taste, but not in a terrible cliffhanger way. It was either a less than fabulous last chapter or a fabulous way to leave the door open for another book set in this universe; who knows? Either way, the characters, dialogue, and style of MAGIC'S CHILD are all great, it's well worth reading, and I'm looking forward to reading more from Justine Larbalestier.
