Everyone in the islands of O’Ceea has a magical ability: whatever they imagine can be brought into existence. Whoever becomes a master over these powers is awarded the title of magician and given fame, power, riches, and glory. Journey with a group of kids as they strive to rise to the top and become members of the Magician’s Workshop.

Layauna desperately wants to create beautiful things with her magical powers, but all she can seem to do is make horrible, savage monsters. For years she has tried to hide her creations, but when her power is at last discovered by a great magician, she realizes that what she’s tried to hide might actually be of tremendous value.

Kai just wants to use his powers to have fun and play with his friends. Unfortunately, nearly everyone on his island sees him as a bad influence, so he’s forced to meet them in secret. When one of the creatures they create gets out of control and starts flinging fireballs at their town, Kai is tempted to believe that he is as nefarious as people say. However, his prospects change when two mysterious visitors arrive, praising his ability and making extraordinary promises about his future.

Follow the adventures of Kai, Layauna, and a boatload of other characters as they struggle to grow up well in this fantastical world.

This book is better than I ever thought it would be and I loved reading it!

The Magician’s Workshop Volume 1 by Christopher Hansen and J.R. Fehr has more different point of views with more characters than what I’m used to. It was really good and I’m glad that I read it. The different character point of views are like mini books within the book which made it really awesome. The characters are all three-dimensional and made me believe that they are real. I am glad that I read this book.

What I liked:

What I like about this book besides that the characters are three-dimensional and the chapters are like mini books: is that the world that the author has made for this book really does seem lifelike and that I believed it while I was reading the book. I also liked how everything that had happened in the book was real especially the punishments for anyone that breaks the rules. I also liked the troubles that the characters go through. It felt like some things that happened in the book was actually happening to me. Which is pretty awesome and not a lot of books can achieve that feeling.

What I didn’t like:

What I didn’t like about this book is how the islanders blame everything that goes bad on the island on one boy because of what his father did. I also really dislike the rules about orphans not being allowed to test until they are way older. This isn’t really fair as it doesn’t give them much of a chance to really prove themselves like the other kids are able to do.

The Magician’s Workshop Volume 1 by Christopher Hansen and J.R. Fehr is an awesome read and I can’t read to read volume 2. I hope it’s as good as the first book. I am also giving this book 5 stars since it’s really pretty awesome and I am also recommending it to any of my readers who read this genre.

Anyways until the next time enjoy this review brought to you by

About Christopher Hansen

The first glimmering Chris Hansen had that there was far more to reality than he had ever imagined occurred six days after his ninth birthday. “Christopher!” cried a wise, old sage. “Life is full of deep magic. Miraculous things happen all around us.” Chris looked around him and asked, “Where? I don’t see anything spectacular.” The man held out a pair of glasses. “Here, put these on.” The boy placed them over his eyes and—“Whoa!” He was gobsmacked by the Wonder he saw. But it lasted only a moment. The man vanished in a flash of starlight and the lenses melted and trickled down his cheeks. Then a message was sung into his ear, “Go and seek what you have seen.” Full of expectation and childlike optimism, Chris set out. To his great joy, this quest has led him to discover many more glimmerings of this miraculous Wonder, often in the most unexpected of places.

About JR Fehr

When J.R. Fehr popped out of the womb, he knew there was more to the world than the four boring hospital walls that he was seeing. “Zango!” his newborn mind exclaimed as he saw people appear and disappear through a mysterious portal in the wall. As a child he found life wowtazzling, but as he grew older the cold water of reality hit him, and the magic he once knew vanished. After spending some wet and shivering years lost in a joyless wasteland, he once again began to see magic in the world. He writes because the Wonder of true life is far grander than anything he ever thought possible.
