Overview

Moherron is the middle child of three in a loving, sharecropper family. When drought plagues his family farm and illness strikes his eldest brother, Moherron desperately prays for rain to end his family’s suffering. Through his pleas, he makes a disastrous discovery.
As he ages, he can never shake the idea that what had occurred was magical in nature and that he had caused it. While adjusting to a new life as best he can, the love of a foster father and brother are not enough to remove the uncertainty that plagues him. Haunted by years of guilt, he decides to leave everyone behind and venture through the perils of wild forest and mountains to see if magic really exists. In his journey he makes discoveries that show magic is more real than he had ever imagined.

The Days of Magic explores the world of fantasy in a way that shows how the unlikeliest of people can change the world remarkably. The journey of a young boy carries the reader through gripping adventures that will ignite imagination and instigate questions about how close our own world can be to that of myth and legend.

    One of the things I look for in a good book is the author's ability to grab me right away with the plot and let me visualize the characters and hear their voices. Miller did this from the first page! From then on, I felt like I was with Moherron on his journey. Unlike some authors whose story is predictable,this wasn't the case with Miller. When I thought I knew what was going to happen next, the author truly surprised me with his little twists. He kept me reading and wanting to know more. I can see the possibility of a second book in the series happening and I am looking forward to it!

    This is a very unique story that grabs you from the very first chapter and holds you through the very end. I read the entire thing in less than 24 hrs. I simply couldn't put it down. The author developed the characters in such detail that you need to know what happens to them. I don’t want to say too much as I prefer not to spoil it for the rest, but I can assure you that the world of Er is an interesting and dangerous place, and I personally, I would love to see it on the big screen some day. I am looking forward to reading more from E.D. Miller.
