Staff Reviews



Oscar is an orphan. He was raised as the “hand” to a magician on an island where magic is all but lost to the people. Long ago, there were many wizards who used their magic to do extraordinary things. Now, few can use magic in the way that it is meant to be used. When something terrible happens to Wolf, the magician’s assistant, the magician must travel far across the country in hopes of discovering what really happened to Wolf. When the magician leaves, Oscar is left to care for the magician’s magic shop. However, Oscar is much more comfortable with plants and cats than he is with people. It isn’t until Callie, the healer’s assistant, comes to Oscar and helps him with his people skills. But when the city children begin falling ill and no one wants to know the truth, it’s up to Oscar and Callie to discover what’s really going on. This is one of my favorite books from last year and it’s perfect for those rapid fantasy lovers. Anyone who enjoyed Harry Potter or Narnia will devour this one!
