For the past six months, rookie world mage, Randall Flood, has been hunting down and capturing anything that stinks of magic and stashing it within the pages of a spellbook named Chuck. But is there more to his breakneck missions than meets the eye?
The talkative tome claims Randall’s predecessor, Mitch, is to blame for magic’s reappearance. The previous wizard had banished most anything magical and hoarded the remaining spells and mystic weapons for himself. Now, as magic resurfaces with greater frequency, Randall doubts the wisdom of capturing the arcane and socking it away in the spellbook.
An encounter with an attractive and crafty witch through an enchanted dating app upends his wizardly purpose and sets him on a path to halt a magical disaster.
Randall must decide whether to save the world using his tried-and-true spellbook or through another mystical avenue that is unusual and untested.
Brian Clopper lends his trademark wit and talent for concocting clever magical mash-ups in a new fantasy novel that explores the archetype of sorcerer as earthly protector in a dynamic new light.
Bring On the Magic (Randall Flood) by Brian Clopper
Quirky, witty and “magically” engaging, Brian Clopper’s BRING ON THE MAGIC is another brilliant addition to topnotch middlegrade/ya reading for ANYONE who is young at heart!
Randall Flood has been on a mission to capture magical monsters for the past six months. As a newly minted world mage, Randall has been guided by Chuck, his spellbook who also acts as a prison for the captured magic! How fortunate for Randall that Chuck came long when he did…or is there more going on than another chapter in a world mage’s life? What happened to the previous world mage and why has magic decided to invade the mundane world now in spades?
It took meeting a fiesty little witch to open Randall’s eyes to a simply sinister plot. Will Randall find “the rest of the story” buried within the unread pages of Chuck’s chapters?
With rapid-fire pacing, our unlikely hero will discover the truth behind the magic he has been hunting down, but not before his adventures take us on a journey of epic proportions!
Brian Clopper has nailed another farfetched fantasy with as much mayhem as magic in his own special blend of crazy-good creativity! This is an author who knows his audience and writes from the fun side of his heart!
