Fans of Skylar Robbins: The Mystery of Shadow Hills should also enjoy the wildly creative Chase Tinker series. Malia Ann Haberman may very well be the next J.K. Rowling. Reminiscent of Harry Potter, Chase Tinker and the House of Magic transports the reader into an incredible dreamlike mansion with magic occurring in every one of its ten turrets and 300+ rooms.
Ever wanted to ride on a flying carpet, become invisible, or have the ability to walk through walls or swim through the air? How about travel back in time, read minds, or get rescued by a friendly whale–just as your nasty cousin tries to drown you? It all happens in the first volume of the Chase Tinker series.
In Chase Tinker’s world, magic, lies and secrets can be a lethal combination…
In this fun, thrilling MG/’Tween fantasy, 13-year-old Chase Tinker and his brother Andy find out the truth about their family’s magical heritage from a grandfather they thought to be long dead. He invites them to visit him in his magical house – a house where every room has its own unique super-power. When there, they learn their family’s magic comes from a mysterious “Relic” and that they have a Dark Enemy who will do anything to get their hands on this Relic. Now Chase must discover a way to stop these evil beings, find his missing dad, and unravel even more family secrets, while not letting on that he has his own secret crush on the housekeeper’s daughter.
Praise for Chase Tinker: The House of Magic:
“This is a phenomenal book for middle grade readers, who can very easily project themselves into this adventure. In the grand old tradition of Harry Potter and Star Wars, I hope we hear a lot more about Chase Tinker, as well as the author, in the future.”
Brian Katcher – School Librarian/Author
“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 Top Reviewer
There’s plenty of action and mystery, and let’s not forget the magical house that is just built out of plain awesomeness. RallytheReaders
