Wild Magic by Tamora Pierce

Good morning 🙂 I hope everyone had a literary filled World Book Day. I managed to get home after my shift at work and immediately took up my book I decided to read. I make it sound like a chore I had to do but this book is a delight to read and fueled my passion for writing as a child.

Wild Magic is the first book in Tamora Pierce’s The Immortals Quartet. The entire series spans many places from Galla to Tortall to Carthak even to the Realms of the Gods, but this book mainly focuses on a harrowing journey from Galla to Tortall for the main protagonist Veralidaine Sarrasri. The book begins focusing on a different charater, Onua Chamtong of the K’miri Raadeh, trying to sell her horses at market and find the new assistant she desperately needs. Things seem to be going badly until the last day of the fair where she is approached by a thirteen year old Daine (the main protaganist of the series.) Onua is unsure whether to hire Daine as she looked like a runaway but is informed, in a heartbreaking manner, that Daine has no family only Cloud her plump pony. She ends up hiring Daine and what follows is an adventure like no other filled with colourful people, magic and danger. Daine develops in startling ways; she is an accomplished archer with no equal but you learn gradually that she is able to talk to animals. Numair, a powerful mage that becomes her teacher, teaches her to heal animals as well. This is a blessing for Daine as she has always wanted to take after her mother and heal, but as her mother had the Gift (a form of magic granted to some at differing strengths focused on different things)  for healing and it appeared Daine had none she felt like such a disappointment. It turns out Daine has powerful Wild Magic with animals and Numair knows how she can focus it.

You see Daine and her newfound friends battle through so many hardships and alot is revealed about Daine’s past that you can see is both heart breaking and character building. The end of the book leaves you wanting to read more but also happy with what has happened so far; it only intensifies the enthrallment that takes over you and the need to read more. The tone of the book seems almost lighthearted and flows at such a natural rate; the book is aimed more for the young adult audience and so nothing is terribly difficult to read, but you find yourself in love with the series from the charming characters to the scenery set, from the magic to the dragons and from the bonds of friendship to the love you can feel eminating from the book.

This series is set in the same World as her previous series, The Song of the Lioness, which features the adventures of Alanna the Lioness and how she came to be the King’s Champion. Alanna does appear in The Immortals Quartet and I felt like I wanted to concentrate on this book first as Daine has been prevailant in my long reading career and has influenced my own writing. If you get a chance please read this series, you will not be disappointed.

What do you think of the series so far? 🙂

Ayurveda is a 5000 year old wellness practice, much before the western world even started talking about wellness. The same concept is envisaged in the following stanza by Susruta in 1000 BC. Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social wellbeing and not merely the absence of disease.

This is a question a lot of people ask. I don’t blame them for being a skeptic as I used to be as well. It is very good to be doubtful and ask many questions. We live in a world were it seems to be opened season on consumers. So, is there evidence that detox foot patches work? we can confidently say yes! The visual proof after using detoxifying foot pads is credible. The improvement is obvious when used over several consecutive days. A highly accredited Environmental Laboratory, SRC Analytical Lab, analyzed multiple samples of foot pads. It discovered absorption into the pads of Arsenic, Mercury, Nickel and many others. detox-foot-patches-benefitsA syncrometer was used to analyze multiple pads for a number of folks. The syncrometer identified the following substances in the used pads: aluminum, arsenic, asbestos, benzene, cadmium, copper, DAB dye, fast green dye, isopropyl alcohol, lead, methyl alcohol, mercury, nickel, sudan black dye, thallium, and a plastic byproduct. Scientists analyzed the hair of people before and after the use of the detoxifying foot pads. The difference in levels of toxins was obvious. Japan scientists have conducted detailed research of foot pads using Thermography. They discovered that the pads are able to quicken circulation and thus the detoxification of the body. A study discovered that the cleansing foot pads increase the presence of alpha brain waves. These waves play a role in the healing and relaxation processes. There is one very important thing to keep in mind. You must be careful of cheap, fake detox foot patches. They usually contain lower quality or in some cases harmful substances. This is the principal reason why so many people did not achieve satisfying results with detoxifying foot pads.
