A Magical Beginning

In the world of OUTCAST, everyone and everything is magic. Everyone, that is, except for Timothy. For his own safety, his kind father kept him hidden away for years, providing him with a safe haven and a chance at a decent - albeit magic-free - childhood. When his father passes away, Timothy is flung back into the world. Now everyone knows he exists. Who can he trust? Where can he go? He must decide who his allies are - and quickly, because assassins are coming for him. The books are packed with action, fantasy, and drama. Timothy is surrounded by intriguing, strong characters: a warrior who can blend in with his surroundings; a robot buddy of his own creation; firebreathing, war-torn dragons; a talking raven named Edgar; and Cassandra, a girl who may or may not be on the same side as her power-hungry grandfather. THE UN-MAGICIAN is a magical beginning to the OUTCAST quartet. Grammar school kids can read the series with very little trouble. The books are also great to read out loud. I recommend OUTCAST: THE UN-MAGICIAN to any family that enjoys fantasy series. There's something here for everyone, whether you like the otherworldly creatures in The Spiderwick Chronicles or the battles and tribunals featured in Star Wars.

Amazing is nowhere close to good enough!

This book is the best! I couldn't have asked for a better book. If you are thinking about buying this, do it. I couldn't stop reading it was so good! ( I would have rated this book a ten if possible)!

A cut above.

A cut above your normal teen-market fantasy that wouldn't be out of place on the adult shelves. In the same vein as 'Mortal Engines' this novel has a fluid quality that a collaboration of two authors doesn't normally have. An unusual situation is presented; in a world where magic is the norm - in fact a must - appears a boy who possesses none. Moreover, magic doesn't seem to recognise him, and his touch dissolves spells. Add to this his extraordinary mechanical aptitude, which makes him an extremely dangerous quantity to the panicked establishment, who will stop at nothing to be rid of him. But is all as it seems? ... Credulity is stretched at times, but one can forgive that as the pace and flow of this engaging fantasy carries one along, immersed in the story, that ends rather abruptly, in preparation for the sequel. ****
