The islands of O’Ceea are like no other. People there have an ability to create projections. You could create anything you can ever imagine but they are only illusions. When someone masters the art of projection, he or she might be on the way to being a great magician. This is the dream most have as the title itself could very well change their lives. The Magician’s Workshop, Volume One follows a group of kids as they aim to rise in their endeavors and follow their dreams to one day be members in The Magician's Workshop, even if some minor mishaps tend to get in their way.
The world that Christopher Hansen and J.R. Fehr have created is phenomenal. I couldn’t get over how intricate everything is. They have definitely not left anything out and have thought of everything in order to make this world as real as it is. The whole way through this book, I was basked in the magic of the story. I have seen every projection and felt every hope and fear in their journey. At one point, I even wanted to know what color would have been pulled from me if I were part of their world. If the authors ever make a quiz that could tell me what color and/or my strengths in terms of projection making, I would love to try it out. And that cliff hanger! I need to get myself the next volume now to see what happens next!
When J.R. Fehr first contacted me about their book, his email was so theatrical and fantastic that I couldn’t wait to see how their storytelling would be. I was definitely not disappointed.
I HIGHLY recommend reading this series. It’s quite the magical ride!
I give this book 5 out of 5 feathers!
