Glitter Ponies is enchanting, almost literally! I took it for a middle-grades fantasy, and so it is, but it’s also quite a bit more. There are distinctly dark elements, and perfectly aptly done references to grown up ‘intimacies’. The outstanding aspect of this book is how Burke handles magic – its complexity, interdependencies, practice, ethics and yes, fun too. I felt the story was almost too complicated. There are so many wonderfully odd characters, and so many strands, that at times I struggled to keep up. (This is why it’s four stars rather than five.) To this was added a realistically imagined social structure inhabited by a wide range of beings. I was as fascinated by little Probability (Lady Luck’s little daughter!) as wizard Kadmeion seems to be.
The conclusion is both painful and transcendent, and demonstrates why this is much more than just a children’s book. It is a rewardingly rich and wonderfully eccentric fantasy. ( )
