"High Praise to the writer! This book grabs your attention from the very first page, and holds it all the way to the end. Refusing to relinquish the reader. The characters are well developed, and the plot is ingenious and has some intriguing twists throughout. I truly could not put it down!"
- Rebecca W.
"This is truly a fascinating novel which is sure to impress readers, with relatable characters, an entertaining storyline, and a wonderful glimpse into the world of mythology with its mystical powers, places and creatures.
The author did a great job of developing the characters. I found myself in tune with Alice and her friends and felt as if I became a part of their breath-taking adventures as they travelled through time to legendary lands to help the Olympians save the world from the evil Titans.
I thoroughly enjoyed Katie Mattie’s writing style and hope there is a sequel in the making."

"I thought M.A.J.I.C. was an interesting book. Being a teenage boy I like to read adventures and this story is like a combination of Twilight and Percy Jackson rolled into one. I did enjoy how the story was told; I could visualize what you were describing."
- Michael M., age 15
"I thought the book was wonderful; you described many events very well. I did enjoy your book and hope you publish the story. I liked the book because it had Greek mythology in it. I liked the part in the story when they face Typhon and talking to the Zeus tree."
- Katherine M., age 12
"The Oracle at Delphi is a well written book that has just the right balance of adventure, suspense, romance and action. Once you pick it up, you can't put it down until you've read it all. You watch the characters grow stronger and more confident together while they face unimaginable evil. It is intriguing from beginning to end."
- Payton W., age 13
"M.A.J.I.C. and the Oracle at Delphi is an action-packed adventure told from the viewpoint of five high school friends. The reader is taken on a journey through the dangers of time and space, as these five young ladies develop unbreakable bonds. From the first page, you will find it difficult to put M.A.J.I.C. down!"

"I just finished your book! Your story building and climax had me at the edge of my seat! Your words truly are M.A.J.I.C. :) Keep on writing."
"If you're looking for a new series for a young teen, or for anyone who enjoys the fantasy in young adult literature, this should be your next purchase. Mattie's imagination and storytelling abilities show promise of an amazing career. Action, humor, drama, and excitement are plentiful in this first book and I'm very excited to see what's in store for the group of kids that Mattie has brought to life in this series."

"OMG--what a wonderful book!! Stayed up all night to finish it, as in couldn't put it down! It's brilliant and beautifully written. Such great pacing, real information imbedded in a totally natural way, super cool characters--all of them! How did you manage that?? No weaknesses (in either the characters or the book, haha). Can you tell: I loved it! And the artwork--I kept going back to the cover, I like it so much. Yeah, Barrie! Congratulations, Katie. I'm proud, proud, proud of you! Am ordering copies for friends and telling the library to get a BUNCH of copies!"

"This book was a great adventure, and had characters you could really like and felt like you knew by the end. The story flowed really well and gave me everything I wanted in a light read. I would recommend this book to anyone who feels like a good story, a fresh idea, or wants to support an awesome girl like Katie Mattie, the young-as-heck and brilliant author of "M.A.J.I.C.". Totally deserves 5 stars!"
- Jenny O., age 21
"Mattie is a rising star! Her attention to detail is impeccable and she creates realistic heroines in Mel, Alice, Jen,Izzy,and Colleen. Great as a female empowerment book, but by no means should this be only classified as such. Has themes of Fate vs Free Will, Perseverance, True Friendship, and Mythology. A great read for the beach, the classroom, or anywhere else! Cant wait for the other two books in the trilogy!"
- Alicia G.
"This book is a great way to spend your time! I always say, you can go anywhere in a book, & in this book, you can go from the Academy, to the Land of the Gods, to Camelot, to Greece, etc, following along on an unexpected quest to save the world. There are twists & turns & surprises in here, & the story flows really well. There is action, suspense, drama, romance, humor, & the only bad thing is that I have to wait to read the next book! This is a unique storyline, & a great book! Enjoy!"
