Karen Fox weaves yet another spellbinding tale, with her latest Fae series installment, Impractical Magic. A witty fantasy read.

Brandon Goodfellow, is considered to be the "World`s Greatest Illusionist," but he is no magician. Rose Thayer is a beautiful faery sent by the magazine she works for to do an exposť on Brand and his illusions.

Naturally, Brand wants nothing to do with the article or Rose for that matter, for she possesses something that he has yearned for all his whole life: real magic. Brand agrees to let Rose travel with and write her article but he has one condition: she is not ALLOWED to use her magic during the duration of their trip. Rose agrees, but even without her magic, Rose and Brand start to fall under an intoxicating spell... love.

Karen Fox delivers another enchanting tale of the power of love and the magic that two people can create. Brand and Rose are a great couple - he's charismatic and handsome, she is feisty and beautiful and they make a great combination. I was very delighted to discover a great secondary story between Sequoia, Rose`s cousin and Brand`s assistant, and Ewan, a male faery and a messenger for Queen Titania. It was a treat to be able to catch up and read about the goings on with characters from Ms.Fox`s previous novels.

This is a definite keeper, I had trouble putting in down. The secondary story was left a bit unresolved... is there perhaps another book in the works?
