"Magic is a word, used by people who do not understand what they see."
This is how the world of the Guardian Chronicles works. Is there magic? Some would say there is. Others won't. Much of what Guardians are capable of would be deemed by many to be magic. They themselves however would say it has nothing to do with magic. Or, they would know that. Wether they would actually say it remains to be seen, since part of their power lies in people's belief in their magical status.
