    This was an enjoyable little mystery combining magic and engaging characters.

    Has potential, but needs work. The dialogue is awkward and repetitive, the text is often clunky and overly descriptive (e.g. instead of just fixing a pot of coffee we get roast, brand, and country of origin), too much focus is placed on the ages and age gaps of the characters, and the villainous monologuing was pretty ridiculous. However, where the writing isn’t clunky, it’s pretty good, it’s an interesting storyline, and I’ve not seen this take on magic and why it works before.

    Very nice series beginning. I liked the main character and his quirks. The mystery story had enough twists to keep me interested.

    The concept was interesting but the plot wasn't as good as it could have been. I enjoyed the story but I wish it had been a little more sophisticated, I guess. It was an easy, quick read that did have some good aspects. The concept was interesting but the plot wasn't as good as it could have been.

    Loved it!! This book did exactly what books are supposed to do. It took me away from my insanely stressful life, and for that, I am very grateful to Richard King.
