    I'd recommend the Amber series by Roger Zelazny. It contains 11 books in the series and easy reading. The first five books are about the older generation and the last combine that with their children. None of the novels is overly long, usually between 200 - 400 pages for each. They combine fanstasy, family feuds, some historical fiction with characters you may have run into in classical novels as well as the ongoing battle between Order and Chaos. It definitely includes various kinds of magic and it creates it own universe.

    I've read the whole series several times and I always enjoy it. The only problem is they are not available on Kindle, but I have seen some information on audio books. They are not easy to find anymore, but Amazon does have them.
    Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.

    On the subject of whether vaccinations are effective, I highly recommend Suzanne Humphries' extremely well researched and documented book, "Dissolving Illusions". Many vaccines were developed after mortality rates had practically bottomed out following significant improvements in sanitation and nutrition. The downward curve in mortality rate was unaffected by introduction of the vaccine except to the extent deaths increased in some of the diseases after a vaccination program was implemented. Smallpox, whooping cough, diphtheria, measles and others. It's also an awesome history of the deplorable living conditions were were all subject to until fairly recently. I'm rather more appreciative now of my current standard of living and the need to eat well.
