Travel to the fantastical island world of O’Ceea where everyone has the same magical ability: they can augment reality in any way they can imagine. Whoever becomes a master over these powers is granted the title of magician and is given fame, power, riches, and glory. This volume of books follows the journey of a group of kids as they strive to rise to the top and become members of the Magician’s Workshop.
The Magician's Workshop by Christopher Hansen (Volume 1)
Feel yourself being pulled into another world as the foundation is laid and filled in with atmosphere and characters that will spring to life. Just like in the “real world,” we struggle to fit in, to find what we do best and that is exactly what this group of young adults must do. Through illusion, they must bring their magic to life, testing their powers, their strengths and weaknesses while learning to work together with their peers.
Off course they will receive sage advice for their elders, but will they listen? Will they trust in themselves to bring their magic to life and push it to the limits to create the perfect illusion? There will always be time for fun and games, but not going too far may be a problem as these kids reel in some out of control powers and learn to work together to create the perfect illusions.
A fanciful read told in an upbeat and colorful way, there wasn’t a moment to rest once the ground floor development has been completed. It was absolutely refreshing to see a group learning to work together as a team, losing that it’s all about me attitude.
Are you concerned about what is being offered for younger readers today? Trust me, THE MAGICIAN’S WORKSHOP is a magnetic and fantastical read that will have even the most reluctant of readers hurrying to read “just one more page,” before bed, school, or whatever! Created for children of all ages, prepare for a book that will have you smiling, wanting to try your own magic and trying to exercise patience waiting for the next book in the series. The perfect gift, the gift of magic and adventure, all without leaving home!
