Fantasy novels for people who want everyday magic

Fantasy novels don't always have to be epic.

There. I said it.

If you're like me, you grew up surrounded by Lord of the Rings.

Chosen ones, and a few others, doing Big Things to Save the World.

Don't get me wrong - I was just as much a nerd about these worlds as the next hobbit.

Sometimes, though, we just don't want to dive into an emotionally-wrought, massive story. We want the ordinary - with a bit of magic thrown in. (Because these are fantasy novels, after all.)

Not to say that ordinary can't be emotional. Or world-saving. And we still want world-building, and relationships, and funny moments, and roll-our-eyes moments.

That's a void I'm trying to fill.

Introducing Teaching Magic.

Nyine Hunter has spent the past three years of her life hiding from her friends and the other well-meaning people in her life. It's time to move forward.

That move is encouraged when one of those well-meaning friends refers her for a job.

The problem? It's teaching. At a school for the wealthy and well-connected. Not Nyine's typical line of work. Or preferred circle of people. And she's not sure why anyone would think it's a good idea.

But she accepts because it seems like an easy way to make money for a year.

Only there's a lot more to the school than classes. Nyine is going to need the skills and connections she ran away from three years ago - far sooner than she'd planned.
