How can I share how much I love this book? This book bit me hard! I got it in the mail and spent the next three hours reading until I finished it, and wished that I could read it again! It’s lovely, and it’s absolutely the book that broke my reluctance in reading. It’s filled to the brim with magic, mystery, and even a missing person!

Things for those who haven’t read it that might interest them:
-A missing father
-A mysterious house burning
-The Mob
-Magic
-New York City
-College students
-a phoenix
-dwarves
-mysterious evil villains
-even a kidnapped/missing wife

This book instantly shot to the absolute top favorite list of fantasy novels! I loved every bit of it from beginning to end. Tessa is a cool character, Brian is a fascinating one, and there’s plenty of action, mystery, and family drama to be had within this book to make you wanting more.

It does lead up to a wide-open ending, meaning that there could definitely be a book two, but it doesn’t label it as a series on Goodreads, so I’m unsure if it’s actually a series or not.

I seriously hope there’s going to be a sequel to this book, because it’s built up enough of a backstory to warrant the return of several characters that I want to know more about. This was a book that will be one that I want to buy as it comes out on shelves, and I believe I’ll buy the hardcover, it’s that good! I’m definitely giving it 5/5 stars, and I hope it gets the detention it definitely deserves! I may re-read this for Halloween, because it’s got the perfect atmosphere for such a holiday!

Until next time,
-Pass Me That Book.

  1. You gave my book THE LATE GREAT WIZARD a great review last year. The mass market paperback is out 9/24 this year, and I would love to be able to quote you as I do some promotion of my own.
    The sequel THE NEW IMPROVED SORCERESS is scheduled for tradeback release in January 2020. I’d also love to send you a pdf of the page proofs for it, if you’d like to read it.

    Thanks,
    Sara
