In this delightful middle-grade thriller, 13-year-old Chase and his younger brother Andy learn family secrets from their grandfather about their family’s magical heritage – and seek to find out the truth about whatever happened to their missing father.
“Haberman’s story is filled with clever and funny magical details which will definitely capture the imaginations of Middle Grade readers. The “House of Magic” is an amazing place, with magical rooms, floating staircases, and endless spaces to explore . . . and seemingly endless ways kids can get into trouble! At the house, Chase and Andy learn to perfect their own magical powers. They also learn the history of their family, the Tinkers, who have battled a Dark Enemy for generations; always fighting to preserve the mysterious “Relic” that holds the key to their magic.
This novel is appropriate for readers aged 10-14. There is no inappropriate language, and while there is an element of violence and heavy doses of suspense, I found nothing objectionable. There is a hint of romance between Chase and Persephone, but no overt sexuality. I see this as the kind of novel that both boys and girls will embrace, which is rare for children’s literature. It’s well-written, professionally edited, and tightly plotted. I recommend it highly.” — Amazon reviewer.
