Description

In a world of mages and illusionists, one orphan must find the magic within himself to save the ones he loves . . .

Twelve-year-old Toby would give anything to see his parents one last time. But since they died tragically ten years ago, he knows it's an impossible wish. Raised by his grandfather, who's a little too protective, Toby yearns for adventure. So when he wakes up one morning and realizes his grandfather is missing, he follows the clues that will lead to his rescue. Toby is soon immersed in a secret world of magic and illusion.

In this unfamiliar world, Toby is joined by two new friends: Wesa, a talented mage, and Thatch, a security boy who'd give anything to practice magic. The three friends are instructed to find a magical hat before an evil magician gets his hands on it first.

Failing will mean the deaths of those they love and create a dangerous divide in the world of magic.

The Magicians Convention is the spellbinding first book in a trilogy of middle grade fantasy novels. If you like action-packed adventures, imaginative worlds, and magical spells, then you'll love Elena Paige's mystical tale.

Reviewed By Mamta Madhavan for Readers' Favorite - 5 Star Rating

The Magicians Convention: The Magicians Book 1 by Elena Paige is the first book in a trilogy of fantasy adventures in which young readers are introduced to Toby Roberts who lives with his grandfather as his parents are dead. Toby's grandfather is protective while Toby wants adventure. His dreams of having an adventure happen when his grandfather is kidnapped by a black panther, who tells him to join the line of magicians outside and he will come again when Toby is ready to listen. Will Toby join the line of magicians as instructed by the black panther? Will he be able to find his grandfather?

The story takes readers on an amazing, fantastical adventure packed with magic, imaginary worlds, an evil magician, and interesting characters. There is magic in the plot and Toby, along with his new friends, Wesa and Thatch, will keep readers spellbound as they start searching for the magical hat. All the characters in the story complement the main characters of Toby, Wesa, and Thatch perfectly. The narrations are dreamy and detailed and will take young readers into a magical world, which will leave them fascinated. The fluidity in the writing takes the story forward without sounding forced, and it is exciting to see three innocent kids having fun with magic. All kids love magic and this story - with its intrigue, magic, illusion, suspense, adventure, and action - will take readers to a fantasy land where they will be immersed in a world of whimsy and fantasy. I am sure, like me, that readers will be waiting for the next book in the series.
