In the Northern Country of the Kingdom of Numis, the giantess wizard Od asks Brenden Vetch to come to the capital of Kelior to become gardener at the Old School of Magic that she established years ago after protecting the city from invaders. Living in sorrow since his parents died and his brother Jode and his girlfriend Meryd left the sadness behind by moving on, Brenden accepts the position. Brenden arrives at the school after walking for several months, but shocks instructor Yar Ayrwood by entering through the door under the big shoe; a portal not used in almost two decades and not seen by most people. The students are mostly the sons and daughters of the ruling class hoping to gain an edge in their loyal support of King Galin. Former student Wizard Valoren arrives as the monarch¿s chosen one to spy this year¿s students to insure none display disloyalty. Valoren is unaware at this time that the real threat lies in a reticent new employee who talks and listens to the plants as he speaks their language. --- OLD MAGIC is a terrific fantasy tale starring a delightful protagonist, a vile villain, and an assortment of eccentric supporting characters including the mysterious wonderful Wizard of Od. The story line grips the reader from the moment that a befuddled Brenden enters the school through an unused for two decades portal and though wizardry driven, mesmerizes readers until the final spell is spun. Patricia A. McKillip writes a charming tale that showcases why she consistently one of the best fantasists on the market today.--- Harriet Klausner

Od Magic is a book that I am happy to give a permanent space on my bookshelf. The characters are fascinating, the story is lovely and the imagery, Patricia A. McKillp's words bring to the mind, is just beautiful. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. If I have one disappointment it is that it ended.

I love Mckillip's style of writing, and am drawn in to her stories by their depth of imagery and rich magical threads. So much of life and inner workings go with each book. This one was especially wonderful the way the characters wound around each other, and brought beauty to everyday life by showing how much magic there is in our own perceptions.

The story and plot might of had a chance of being great. But, the characters were poorly developed and the telling of the story jumped around from character to character. Yes, in the end, it did all tie together, but I felt the authour never took the plot to the next level the level in which you want to keep reading. This was a good example of fantasy gone bad.
