The Magi by Kevin M. Turner

The Magi

Goodreads Description:  Thirteen-year-old Elijah Hawk has never heard of the Magi. He doesn't know about the secret power they have. He has never been to Savenridge, the Magi city hidden deep inside the northern forests. Most of all, Elijah is unaware of the dangers hunting him, in search for something he has. After one terrifying night, however, all of that changes!

On a quest to solve the murder of his parents, Elijah stumbles upon the land of the Magi. Learning their secrets and training with their power is the least of his problems. In order to find out why his parents were killed, Elijah learns that he must confront the dangers that are hunting him. What's more terrifying is learning that stumbling upon this new world of the Magi may not have been an accident afterall.

My Thoughts:  I really enjoyed this book!  The characters were really well written, and I really liked Elijah and cared about what happened to him.  There were some good bad guys in the story, and the line was really well defined between the good and the evil.  There were, however, some characters that you didn't know if you could trust, but that added to the intrigue of the story!  I definitely want to read the next book in the series to see what happens to Elijah and the rest of the Magi!!

I told my daughter about the book, and she said that she could really see the book as a movie!  She was excited to read the book too.

I received this ebook from the author for a review.

  1. This sounds interesting. I generally like there to be more of a blurring of the line between good and evil but the idea of this magic people living secretly deep in a forest is definitely a premise that grabs my attention. I might have to look this one up! Nice review!
