The next series in my Series Trouble series is…
Regular visitors will know that I’ve decided to do a series (yes it’s completely ironic) of posts to share my impressions (from when I read the books) of some series that I’ve started but not yet finished.
I’ve realised that I’m part way through so many series that I need to sit down and do some soul-searching about which ones I should continue to ride, and which ones to gently let slide.
I’d really appreciate some feedback and advice from all of you on what to do. Should I … RIDE or SLIDE
ROYAL INSTITUTE OF MAGIC by Victor Kloss
(Royal Institute of Magic #1)
By Victor Kloss
Read in December 2015
Two years ago, Ben Greenwood’s parents walked out the door and never returned. The police have all but given up finding them when Ben stumbles upon a peculiar letter addressed to his dad. “You are the most wanted man in the Unseen Kingdoms. Unless you come to us, we cannot help. For your child’s sake, tell us what you know.”
The letter is from an organisation called the Royal Institute of Magic and is dated a day before his parents disappeared. Like most people, fourteen-year-old Ben hasn’t the faintest idea what the Royal Institute of Magic is, but he has his first clue: the logo on the letter.
Armed with nothing but his wits and the help of his good friend Charlie, Ben sets out to find the Institute and, through them, his parents. To succeed, he will have to navigate a land filled with fantastic creatures and Spellshooters, where magic can be bought and sold, to unravel an ancient family secret that could hold the key to defeating an evil the Institute has been fighting for the last five hundred years. – GOODREADS
In a Nutshell | Elizabeth’s Legacy is a good start to a series, and the search for Ben’s parents is set to continue into next books.
Given the subject matter, it’s natural for other wizarding books to come to mind, but I think the author has succeeded in building a world sufficiently different to those that we already know.
