Reviewed by K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite

Myracles in the Void is a work of fiction in the epic fantasy and adventure subgenres. It is aimed at young adult readers and was penned by author Wes Dyson. The book follows two siblings named Lynd and Gai who have been blessed with Myracles – a form of magic that manifests either as the ability to create or the ability to destroy – as they set out on a quest to save their family after their father is transformed into a dangerous monster. But with their Myracles taking on opposite forms, will they be able to present a united front to a dangerous world?

I adore the world-building that has been done in this story with a carefully considered and applied system of magic that is quickly established then explored as the story is told. Wes Dyson wisely avoids getting bogged down in the mechanical details of how Myracles work and instead uses it to amplify the characteristics of the people who use it to create a masterful character study of a brother and a sister who each is being forced to deal with grief in their own particular ways. The characters of Lynd and Gai are expertly realized. Their journey together throughout Myracles in the Void results in the layers of their characters being beautifully and slowly peeled back in a style reminiscent of some of the most memorable coming of age stories until we’re left with the core of their fully realized and deep characters. It's a feeling that will stay with readers long after the final page.
