Fall is officially here! And like many of you, I like to kick off the season with a The Magician's Tower: A Sequel to The Wizard of Dark Streetgood, cozy book. My current delicious fall read is The Magicians Tower, by Shawn Thomas Odyssey.

A sequel to the debut novel, The Wizard of Dark Street, Odyssey picks back up with his charming heroine, Oona Crate, and along with his lyrical descriptions, takes his readers through the ultimate wizard challenge.

My official review of The Magicians Tower will be published next Monday, but for those of you wondering what book to get your child for Fall (or if you’re currently looking for an appetizing Middle Grade book to sink you teeth into) I wanted to offer a sneak peak.

Throughout the month of October I will be posting/reviewing more Fall favorites (and new releases) so stay-tuned!

Happy Monday!

The Magicians Tower official synopsis:

Despite her extraordinary magical abilities and sleuthing skills, Oona Crate’s detective agency has failed to take off.  But a new challenge captures her attention—The Magician’s Tower Contest.

Held every five years, no one has ever completed the array of dangerous tasks (such as racing on flying carpets or defeating a horde of angry apes). As the competition commences, a case emerges.  A rare punchbowl—one with unparalleled magical powers—has disappeared from the carnival surrounding the Magician’s Tower. If Oona can find the culprit, she could use the bowl to answer her question about her mother’s and sister’s tragic deaths so many years ago—was she really at fault?

Full of magic, mystery, and fun, THE MAGICIAN’S TOWER continues the wonderful adventures of Oona Crate.
