Blue Magic (Blue Magic)by A. M. Dellamonica
Synopses & Reviews
The sequel to Indigo Springs, “A psychologically astute, highly original debut—complex, eerie, and utterly believable.” —Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review
This powerful sequel to the A.M. Dellamonica's Sunburst Award-winning contemporary fantasy Indigo Springs starts in the small town in Oregon where Astrid Lethewood discovered an underground river of blue liquid—Vitagua—that is pure magic. Everything it touches is changed. The secret is out—and the world will never be the same. Astrids best friend, Sahara, has been corrupted by the blue magic, and now leads a cult that seeks to rule the world. Astrid, on the other hand, tries to heal the world.
Conflicting ambitions, star-crossed lovers, and those who fear and hate magic combine in a terrible conflagration, pitting friend against friend, magic against magic, and the power of nations against a small band of zealots, with the fate of the world at stake.
Blue Magic is a powerful story of private lives changed by earthshaking events that will ensnare readers in its poignant tale of a world touched by magic and plagued by its consequences.
"Dellamonica returns to the characters of Indigo Springs to examine the changes in the world now that the magic vitagua has been unleashed. Fanatic Sahara Knax, who pretended to be a goddess, and her sycophants are on trial for treason. Will Forest, who helped bring about their downfall, is now working with his old friend Astrid Lethewood to find his children, though Astrid is more focused on saving the world from an anticipated apocalypse. While the first novel was a tight book focusing on a small group of people, this volume is more ambitious. Unfortunately, Dellamonica can't quite keep all of her story lines and characters untangled. The intriguing core concepts and potential for a worthwhile tale are lost in a quagmire of complex plotting as the threat of global disaster takes a backseat to Will's personal issues, Sahara's trial, and the squabbling of Astrid's followers.

"I loved this. An original and terrific apocalyptic fantasy set in the real world." Patricia Briggs, #1 bestselling author
"A fascinating, multilayered tale of people caught up with forces beyond their control. Not only is it a cracking good tale, its an insightful look into the consequences of using great power selfishly." RT Book Reviews, 4 Stars
