Titan Magic

Title: Titan Magic
Author: Jodi Lamm
Published: 2011
Synopsis from Goodreads

Mute, heartless, and tormented by auditory hallucinations, Madeleine Lavoie never questions why her family has hidden her from the world. But the night her brother casts her out, she learns the mysterious voice she thought existed only in her mind is no delusion, and no matter how hard she tries, she can never disobey it.

Now Madeleine must find her own voice in a cacophony of powerful tyrants, monsters, and gods. If she fails, she will forfeit her life and the lives of everyone who loves her. But if she succeeds, she may finally gain the ability to love someone in return.

I love bedtime stories.
I love the romance and adventure they weave.
The way you hold your breath as you get to the next page.

The moment you realize you uncovered the truth
But only to be fooled again.

I am always amazed by the magic of characters.
The timeless effort the storyteller takes to make each one come alive.

"Titan Magic" while a little darker than those bedtime stories you grew up with is just what the doctor ordered when hunting for a good book to curl up with.

It's Once Upon a Time meets On a Dark and Stormy Night.
A perfect blend of action, mystery, magic, and swoon.

Maddie always thought she knew who she was. A mute girl that gets tied to her bed at night and gaurded by her brother.

This sounds pretty normal. Right? I mean... why wouldn't a young girl get tied up before bedtime every night?

It's completely normal to Maddy.... until one day her brother loosens her ropes and tells her to leave. With a kiss goodbye she is about to embark on an epic journey of fairy tale proportions.

Maddy believes she is mad. And not just her...Everyone thinks she is mad. But why do they think that? They don't know about the voice she hears inside her head. How could anyone know? Who could she tell? That voice is always telling her to find him. And now with her ropes loose and the voice getting louder, who knows what will happen next?

If you are a fan of "The Golden Compass" and "Narnia" then this book needs to be on your To Be Read List !
