Is having magical powers a gift? Or a curse?
Chase Tinker is about to find out…
Before Chase Tinker can recover from finding out he apparently has the astonishing, but out-of-control power to move things with his mind, his younger brother Andy suddenly has a magical ability, too!
Soon the boys are in the middle of a wild and crazy supernatural adventure when they’re whisked across the country to live in a 560 year old magical house with a powerful 4,000 year old Relic that’s in control of all their magic, and if anything happens to this Relic, their magic and their house will die. On top of that, the boys learn that dangerous and wicked villains are planning to steal the Relic and take control of all the magic, free will, and light in the world.
Now, with the help of Andy, their feisty cousin Janie, their fearless friend Persephone, and Maxwell the ferret, Chase must find his missing dad, fight through frightening family secrets and betrayals, and outwit, out-magic, and outmaneuver their dastardly enemy in order to save his family, and the world.

A magically fun ride!
What I liked: I really enjoyed Chase Tinker and the House of Magic! I enjoyed this even more than the first Harry Potter movie. (I never actually read the books.. )
Chase Tinker and the House of Magic is a great book not only showcasing the age-old fight of good versus evil, but the important stuff too: how to have fun, setting priorities, why you need to listen, and why family is important. It’s amazing to read a book where you’re so immersed you forget what’s going on around you.
I’d definitely recommend this for readers, unless you’re very conservative, of at least 10-years. The main characters ages range from 10-15, though Chase is 13. Hint: You’re going to want to buy the eBook, because you’re going to fight over a print copy!
What I didn’t like: There were a few times I thought the story dragged, a few words used I didn’t think were appropriate, and a few situations I thought may be a bit much for younger readers.
Grab Chase Tinker and the House of Magic and get lost! Or better yet share it with your kiddos!! 😉
