We have often seen in movies how tampering with the timeline distorts the timeline and poses consequent dangers to the individual.
After the usual uneventful creative writing class, Tessa Colvin feels a pain in her stomach. After that, she begins to feel funny and hear herself, except that it is a different person. Tessa freaks out, and this voice helps her get out of school and explains the situation to Tessa. The voice she was hearing was that of the future Tessa, who entered the body of the present Tessa just as she was about to die. In the future, Tessa’s brother kills them all, including himself, in an explosion that happened when he was fighting some Fayes. Now, the future Tessa was here to prevent that from happening. How does Tessa assimilate and react to this? Will future Tessa successfully prevent this misfortune? Read this book to find out.
I wondered where the daydreamer in the book’s title came from, but I understood and found out as I read on. Tessa was a daydreamer, and everyone at school knew this. I must say that I have so much in common with Tessa in terms of daydreaming. I love the relationship between Tessa and those around her. She had an incomplete but loving family that had each other’s back. Tessa and her best friend Megan started healthy practices of encouraging one another, which I admired. I also enjoyed the banter between Tessa and Petunia and Tessa and Ashley.
The Mage Destinies: Path of the Daydreamer by Brett Galen is a fiction novel that features the supernatural, magic, family, and combat. I was amazed at how the book and the arrangement of events became clear. It was well-planned.
What I didn’t like about the book was that there were a few loose ends. For example, the author did not reveal Megan’s identity. It remains a mystery. With the way the book ended, I don’t know if the author is planning a sequel. I also had some difficulties understanding the conversation initially, but I adjusted. However, these are not enough to deduct a star from this book’s rating. I only found a few errors while reading it, which shows that the book was professionally edited. Therefore, I rate this book five out of five stars for the positive reasons mentioned above.
I recommend this book to young adults and lovers of books about magic, superheroes, and villains. The book contained an average of violent, sexual, and profane scenes, as the author intended to appeal to a wide range of readers.
