Reviewed by Patricia Reding for Readers' Favorite The beautiful cover of Autumn Magic hints at the eastern influences in Triana Willard’s story of Wren, the youngest daughter of a family that has been exiled to live a great distance from the city. When Wren’s mother arranges a marriage for Wren's sister, Sky, to a distant cousin, the family prepares for the great wedding day. Shortly after Sparrowhawk, the groom, his parents, and their entourage arrive, and the ceremony is to take place. But before the nuptials are completed, the bride and the other wedding guests suddenly turn into black swans that fly away. Only Wren and Sparrowhawk are left behind, both having been protected from the magic that transformed their loved ones. Together Wren and Sparrowhawk journey to find Sky and their other family members and to save them from the dark magic of the witch that seeks to destroy Sparrowhawk’s family. In Autumn Magic, young readers will find courage with Wren, as she sets out to go beyond the furthest borders she has ever known to save her family.
