Some Kind of Magic is partly intended as a homage to the beauty of our world. Below you'll find photos of some of the settings and beings described in the book. These are meant to be viewed as you read, or after you finish; if you scroll ahead before reading, you may find spoilers! And yes, I realize it may be tempting to just keep scrolling ... and so, so easy ... but do you really want to ruin the suspense? It's up to you of course! ;)
Chapter 3: the peacock
"There is something about this environment, silent, devoid of distraction and sensory stimulation, that heightens the senses and intensifies the effect of beauty. When those peacocks caw and unfurl their dazzling feathers and the sun’s rays land on them, highlighting the blue, green, purple, and gold, it’s beyond breathtaking, beyond earthly beauty."
