In Tiffany Kahapea’s Hidden Magic: The Call of the Prophecy (Magic and Prophecies Book 1), Mary and her sisters had thought their mother's descent into madness and her ramblings about magic were the worst things they'd have to deal with. But that was before the prophecy; before the turning awakened powers that made their mother's apparent madness questionable. The six sisters never knew their father, as strange as that was, and he never gave them a single thing, except, it seemed for the powers woken in an event their best friend and honorary sister called the turning. They are the Fated Six, and, according to prophecy, the future lies in their hands. But where there is one prophecy another always follows, and one thing is certain, magic always comes with a price.
The rapport between the sisters is brilliant, giving the reader a full sense of their close bonds. With a very Charmed/Umbrella Academy vibe, Hidden Magic pulls the reader into a world where magic is pitted against darkness, corruption, and manipulation in an attempt to ensure that the Master of All is foiled in his attempt to rule the mortal realm. But that is not their sole purpose. As they are drawn deeper into the world of magic, they learn more about their true purpose, what it means to be the Fated Six, and the cost. I loved watching the sisters' trials by fire as they're rapidly immersed in a world where it seems everything wants to kill them, and powers they don't understand surface, needing to be mastered and understood if they have any hope of surviving. Tiffany Kahapea has woven an intricate tale of magic that truly tests the bonds of sisterhood, pushing the characters to and beyond their limits. This is a gripping tale that tackles prominent issues that would arise should magic be exposed to the world of humans, and the chaos that would ensue. Brilliantly crafted with attention to detail and a plot that just keeps giving.
