"Magic Is Faster Than Light" Reviewed

My next book, "Magic Is Faster Than Light," is due out in a couple of weeks, so I was pleased that I was able to get it reviewed by Ginger Simpson, a Muse author.

Here is the review that Ginger wrote:

Magic is Faster Than Light is not your mother‘s normal romantic fiction. Or, maybe it is if she‘s a fan of quirky scifi stories told by a narrator instead of stepping into the character‘s shoes and seeing the story firsthand. This is my first experience with this style of writing, and I must admit that author, James Hartley, has a remarkable imagination. He has created a story bound to capture the interest of those who like books featuring more than one POV in a scene. Witches traveling via spacecraft to a new world in a ship destined to kill them, use their magic to save themselves and their family members and land the vessel safely. You don’t have to follow the yellow brick road to get to Oz, and you don’t have to rely on Captain Kirk to steer the Enterprise to a land of people covered with blue fur. Romance? Of course. How else can they repopulate their new home. Magic IS faster than light, and James Hartley proves it with his latest release.

Thanks, Ginger.


  1. I have to say, Ginger's review intrigued me about this book. As someone who prefers mystery romance where situations are more grounded, this did capture my attention especially as I've read other works by Mr. Hartley and found his writing thought provoking and engaging. Thanks for sharing Ginger. I might just have to step out of my boy meets girl world into this one especially with the twist of the evil ship. Great review.
