How much of what we know is what we allow ourselves to see, and how much is so real it threatens to break through our perceptions? That’s the question that Patricia McKillip’s little novel “Od Magic” asks.

The book takes place in a fictional kingdom in which magic has, for generations, been tightly regulated and restricted by law and custom. The result has been a fascinating form of cognitive dissonance, as magic continues to change and evolve and the keepers of power try to stop it.

What power triggers in people is an old theme, but it’s explored in a new and interesting way in “Od Magic.” It’s an odd little book, and it leaves the reader mulling over its questions for days.
