The Reluctant Wizard by A. A. Warne (Book Review#900)


The reluctant wizard is a sci-fi fantasy story about Eli. His family is constantly threatened by the warlocks hence, he decides to go to the wizarding world and study magic. Terra Magicae is not an ordinary lace and as the wizards promise to protect his mother and baby brother, Eli enters the Academy and has to leave all behind.

The book is geared towards the young adult audience however, I still found it intriguing to read. The dialogue or plot wasn’t just for the young readers. I have to admit; the cover was not appealing to me. The content on the other hand was attention-grabbing. Eli’s personality at the beginning also does not give you the best impression either, however, as you read along, the character begins to shine. Sometimes, in fact, I was wondering how can a person so young be dealing with such confrontations.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

I think the biggest thing one could take away from this story was how Eli gave up his life for his family.

The literature was well written and the pace of the story was steady. The scenes were written with a nice flow. I recommend this book to young adult readers and sci-fi fans.

  1. A great choice for Review #900! For the larger scene, I must say that this #900 milestone is a really big deal. What an incredible work ethic, reviewing that many authors in a relatively few years. This is a pace not many could keep up with. I have often referred to our hard-working Review Tales reviewer as a “Book-a-Day Lady.” Just remarkable! Many thanks from this writer and frequent website follower.
