Product Description

Product Description

The world of Halfway is the anti-Harry-Potter: the wizard school is part of a shadowy organization that takes the students by force from their families. And the outside world isn't much better: if you are a wizard, you are looked upon with fear because of what you represent.

In the midst of this, in secret, twins are born: a boy and a girl. They are Halfway, the rare offspring of humans and a now-extinct race of faeries.

But the twins don't remain a secret for long. Temet, the boy, is taken as a child by the wizards. Cemagna, the girl, vows to rescue him. But the only way to escape the wizards is to keep running...

This book is Book 1 of the Wizards and Faeries series.

HASH(0xa684eb40) out of 5 stars Wizards and Faeries! Dec 12 2011
By The Slowest Bookworm - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I really enjoyed Halfway. It was quite a short book and only took me two evenings to read. If you've read Running From Secrets by the same author, you will have come across one of the main characters in Halfway before - Cemagna. Saying that, Halfway is it's own story so you do not have to read Running From Secrets first.

From the synopsis you'll already know that Cemagna and her twin brother Temet grew up in hiding, and this is their story. The chapters were split between each of the protagonists and written in first person for Cemagna and third person for Temet. I know this probably sounds confusing but it worked really well and never dragged me out of the story.

Both Cemagna and Temet were good strong characters, each with their own story, although Cemagna was my favourite. She seemed more `real' to me than Temet and her journey through this story was most definitely harder than Temets, or maybe I just love female kick-ass protagonists! Saying that, I really did enjoy Temet too although I would have loved to have learned more about the Wizardly Order and what Temet was learning.

Halfway was a definite page turner. There were plenty of surprises along the way and the plot was intriguing. If you're looking for a quick read with plenty of magic and action, then I most definitely recommend you grab yourself a copy of Halfway!

I really enjoyed Halfway. The characters were very interesting and I loved reading about the world Stephanie Void created. I will definitely be continuing on with the series and recommend it to fans of magic both adults and youths alike.

HASH(0xa684efcc) out of 5 stars More than just a fantasy novel Feb. 2 2013
By R. Esposito - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm not an expert on fantasy novels, but I don't think you need to be to enjoy this story. The author's writing voice carries the reader along nicely and the story is well paced and fun. What really worked for me was the way in which Ms. Void wove together elements of mystery, suspense and of course magic. Engaging characters and a story line that held my interest.

HASH(0xa684efb4) out of 5 stars Could be better Sept. 16 2013
By MeiMei - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The worldset has great potential but there is just something missing in a big way. I understand the need for leading a reader on a bit, but there are not enough breadcrumbs to keep the trail warm to make me want to continue. My biggest issue is that Cemagna the character is rushed. She could be written as the young girl with maturing feelings but still have more depth. Teenage lusts swapping every week is real and could be explored much much better. The writer seems out of touch with the feelings that Cemagna is supposedly having. It's like research was done to see what the right things a teen girl would feel but there is no "ring-of-truth" to it to make the character believable. Temet and the other male characters have way more oomph to them. The bad thing is that the books seem to be Cemagna-centric so it's pretty bad to have that character so lacking.

Sorry this is not a series I can follow and i'll wait until this author has way more content available before considering sampling the titles again.

I couldn't make it past chapter 3 in the book. I really wanted too but the story did not engage me at all. Personally I felt it was rather young, in writing and the main characters. In other cases it has been done well and I have greatly enjoyed the books, but this story never really affected me. I remained indifferent while reading of the exciting and emotional things the children were facing. I am supposed to care for these characters and relate to them in some way despite the age difference, but I found them in no way engaging. Best of luck if you give it a shot
