The Magician’s Daughter by H.G. Parry
This is on my February TBR and also happens to be an ARC. I’m about 35% through and so far I’m enjoying the writing and the plot. It seems like it’ll be a story about those in power maybe not making the best decisions for all. Even though I’m enjoying it, for some reason I feel like I’m reading it very slowly. I’m not sure why. Maybe it’s my own misperception because I have a lot of books I’d like to get to in addition to my formal TBR. I hope to make some more progress on this book today. Wish me luck!

In the early 1900s, a young woman is caught between two worlds in H. G. Parry’s spellbinding tale of miracles, magic, and the adventure of a lifetime.
Off the coast of Ireland sits a legendary island hidden by magic. A place of ruins and ancient trees, sea salt air, and fairy lore, Hy-Brasil is the only home Biddy has ever known. Washed up on its shore as a baby, Biddy lives a quiet life with her guardian, the mercurial magician Rowan. A life she finds increasingly stifling.
One night, Rowan fails to return from his mysterious travels. To find him, Biddy must venture into the outside world for the first time. But Rowan has powerful enemies–forces who have hoarded the world’s magic and have set their sights on the magician’s many secrets.
Biddy may be the key to stopping them. Yet the closer she gets to answers, the more she questions everything she’s ever believed about Rowan, her past, and the nature of magic itself.
