I'm a huge JK Rowlings, Harry Potter Fan and have been looking for something as enjoyable and magical to read. This is it. It's geared to a bit older group, I think pre-teens, teens and those of us who enjoy going back to younger years will enjoy the read. It's captivating and takes to you to another place while keeping you in today. I highly recommend to any and all who enjoy fantasy/magical reading. Just the fact the main characters named were touched on in Harry Potters first book with Dumbledore is what caught my attention. I kept half expecting "Nick" to refer to him at any time. Mr. Scott does an excellent job of describing and helping you picture the scenes and worlds you enter. Enjoy the read, the Magician is just as good and I look forward to more...

I love this series. I already own three of the books so I was searching for the first book in the series to start completing my collection and I found it here for only five dollars and I was so happy. The book arrived a day before it was scheduled to and was in perfect condition. I will definitely buy more books from walmart online!
