My current favourite book is ‘Magic. A Rough Guide’ by Nathan McGrath. It’s a gritty story based in a Britain where magic is a terrorist offence.

Lizzy, a young magician escapes from a prison laboratory where she’s been locked up with other magician girls since she was five years old. Determined to free all the other girls, things don’t go as expected when she comes across Chris, a joyrider who has only just realized he’s a magician himself.
