Word of the Day Wednesday: Mage

This Word of the Day Wednesday is inspired by Daley Downing’s book Rulers and Mages.

A few months ago, my friend asked what I was currently reading. I told her about the impressive YA book that I was lucky enough to “early read” called Rulers and Mages. She then asked, “What is a mage?”

I puffed out my chest all knowingly and said, it’s like a wizard….. a warlock…. a fairy…. yes, it must be Faye-related because the book is bursting with magic and fairies.

Anyway, I wasn’t convincing of my absolute knowledge of magical terminology.

She gave me a knowing look and I sheepishly Googled it for us.

Here is what I found:

So that is the exact definition according to Oxford Dictionary. No more faking it for me for a while.

If you haven’t read Downing’s The Order of the Twelve Tribes series yet, you really should. (That I do know.)

Happy Wednesday!
