Review by Zach

The Inquisitor's Apprentice was a fantastic book that grabbed my attention from the very beginning. This book reminded me of Harry Potter, Nicholas Flamel, and Percy Jackson. This is a fun adventure fantasy story that has mystery and magic. This story takes place in a time when magic is a known thing but is illegal. Follow Sacha as he discovers a power of his that will make life both easier and more difficult. As Sacha discovers that he can see magic!

Very Enticing But Very Scary

Review by gingerspice

I think this book was very interesting but it was really scary. If you are sensitive or under 13, I would not suggest reading it. I was really scared, and stopped before I finished it. However, it is very interesting and I think that if you like thrilling stories this book is definitely for you.
