The storyline follows James, Jenna and their three children as they are forced to leave their home because their whereabouts have been discovered by a group whose mission is to destroy them. They quickly transport themselves to Peru where we gradually learn that James and Jenna are wizards, and that the Darwinian Corporation is the organization attempting to gain certain powers their children have. It seems that all three are the offspring of the original Gods of Olympus. Thus with their control, they can extend even further their all-controlling power throughout the world – a control that does not auger well since there is much evil in the control they now have. We discover that James is a Warrior Wizard, Jenna a Protector, and that the children will be of still higher positions after their ‘Dawn’ occurs. Extensive activity ensues with cyclops and others gaining tremendous size and power to combat evil forces and Centaurs, Unicorns, two-headed monsters, the Greek Minotaur and other mythical creatures partaking of the activity that also involves magical spells, potions, magical shields, conjurors at work and more.
The author has provided a story that moves well, characters that generate excellent empathy, nicely portrayed battle scenes and interesting illustrations. This is a fantasy that should have great appeal to younger children and one that parents should enjoy reading to them.
A family of wizards is a force to be reckoned, especially when four of them are Olympians. The Olympians are direct descendants of the Greek gods that lived many years ago. And continue living in the lost city of Atlantis mysteriously under the ocean.
The most powerful of the three children is the youngest, Rafi. The Darwinians captured the young children to “train” them in the uses of their powers, but in reality they are draining Rafi of his powers to use to power-up their wizards.
Hidden Magic is such an engaging story, something that would allow the kids’ imagination run wild. I felt excited for Zachary, Saskia and Rafi, as their life suddenly became adventurous, exciting and also dangerous. I like the fact that the book explained magic in a logical way, something that kids would definitely understand. And also, the incorporation of Greek mythology in this book also stirred my fascination that I couldn’t just put it down and wait for what was going to happen next in the wizarding family.
Hidden Magic is perfect for bedtime reads (maybe), though the story could be finished in several nights. I am saying this because the kids and the parents would have a good time reading the book together—it’s about adventures of a family and what could be a better topic apart from that, right? So, if you’re a fan of books that talk about magic, mythology and adventure, then go 1-click this book.
The story pace is fast and action packed. The story line is well-written, delightful and entertaining. I do not think it is age appropriate for young children and is more of an older school age to pre-teen age level due to the violence and length. There was a war that the children participated in and they used the powers to fight the enemy that resulted in deaths. I enjoyed reading the story although I was not the target audience. Overall, good read for youth who like fantasy filled with action.
The best thing about the book was that it explained magic in a very logical way. Everything from lifting and moving objects to traveling to another place through space was explained patiently and in an effective way that had even me (a grown up) believing the words of the James and Jenna.
