The Mage Destinies: Path of the Daydreamer is a work of fiction in the fantasy and adventure subgenres. It is suitable for the general reading audience from young adults upwards and was penned by author Brett Galen. The story follows protagonist Tessa, who has dreams for her future that definitely don’t involve the magical arts. But when Tessa discovers that she has innate powers as a Mage and that the fate of the world may be at stake, juggling her senior year at high school seems more difficult than ever. Can she keep the two lives separate, or will her destiny as a Mage change her life beyond recognition?
Author Brett Galen really knows how to tell a story, and this is a magical fantasy tale that starts with a brilliant premise and keeps up the momentum all the way through to its epic conclusion. I really enjoyed the development of Tessa as a central protagonist, whose development arc spans from a somewhat naïve teen into a capable young woman with the fate of the world resting on her shoulders. The close narrative style around her and the dialogue deliver a superb emotional connection direct to the audience, which is ideal for the YA target market and really helps you to root for Tessa through the unexpected and exciting twists of the plot. Overall, The Mage Destinies: Path of the Daydreamer is a superb fantasy tale that ticks all the boxes for YA fantasy fans, and showcases the descriptive and emotive writing talents of a very promising author indeed.
