At some point in everyone’s life, they loved magic, thought magic was real, watched a movie/show about magic, wished they could do magic. For Toby, it was a reality… he just didn’t know it yet. One morning, which should have been an ordinary morning, twelve-year-old Toby sees a long line of people dressed in funny clothes, waiting outside his neighbor’s house. He calls for his grandfather, but his grandfather doesn’t see anything. Grandpa goes upstairs and now he’s missing. In order to save his grandfather, Toby must dive headfirst into a world he didn’t know existed and believe the impossible. With the help of Thatch and Wesa, both of whom are also in the same boat as Toby, must work together to save their loved ones and preserve the world of magic.

This had the vibe of Harry Potter with the world building and how two separate worlds coexist. Each chapter painted a vivid picture and the story drew you in with every chapter. As the chapters passed by, the action intensified and left you needing to know what happens next. As the Toby, Thatch, and Wesa worked together as a team and thwarted the villain along the way, they found they had allies in the most interesting places… and people. I loved this story and the preview of the next book only whetted my appetite, but I need the next one immediately! Maybe if I say “Abracadabra”…
