This is a post I should shared with you several months ago (sorry), but then it’s never too late to find out or be reminded of a fascinating book.

SOME VERY MESSY MEDIEVAL MAGIC by C. Lee McKenzie was released in May of this year by Dancing Lemur Press LLC. This is a fun book that is a great read no matter when you pick it up. (It would also make a wonderful gift for those booklovers on your birthday or dare I say, Christmas list.)

Now let me tell you a bit about the book.

Pete’s stuck in medieval England!

Pete and his friend Weasel thought they’d closed the Time Lock. But a young page from medieval times, Peter of Bramwell, goes missing. His absence during a critical moment will forever alter history unless he’s found.
There’s only one solution - fledgling wizard Pete must take the page’s place. Accompanied by Weasel and Fanon, Pete’s alligator familiar, they travel to 1173 England.
But what if the page remains lost - will Pete know what to do when the critical moment arrives? Toss in a grumpy Fanon, the duke’s curious niece, a talking horse, and the Circle of Stones and Pete realizes he’s in over his young wizard head yet again...

For those of you not familiar with Lee, here a bit of information on her.
Author C. Lee McKenzie

C. Lee McKenzie has a background in Linguistics and Inter-Cultural Communication, but these days her greatest passion is writing for young readers.

When she’s not writing she’s hiking or traveling or practicing yoga or asking a lot questions about things she still doesn’t understand.

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you’ll check out SOME VERY MESSY MEDIEVAL MAGIC. Are you already making that “C” list and if so, does it have a lot of books on it?


  1. Definitely not too late.
    I have never read a book of hers I haven't liked, and some I have read (and will reread) several times.

  2. Never too late! Lee will appreciate it.

  3. It's never too late, indeed, Mason. And this sounds like a fun read. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Thank you for featuring Lee's book today.

  5. Many, many thanks for the great post about this book. It's always exciting to see bloggers feature one of my stories, so thanks for the excitement at the beginning of the week!

  6. Hi Mason - absolutely never too late - this would make an excellent Christmas present for younger readers ... perhaps even older ones - where the imagination can wander. I love the sound of it ... good luck to Lee and to all with their books - cheers Hilary


I'd love to hear your thoughts on today's post. Thanks for dropping by.
