Some of the recent books in the series In this edition we meet people in the magical world including Gwen Martin s kids I also iked the not so subtle political commentary in the book Overall where the Three Times the Love last few books feltike a rinse repeat
this one felt fresh even though the basic formula is the same I LOVED IT I would ve one felt fresh even though the basic formula is the same I LOVED IT I would ve okay with a so so book after 5 books it became a habit but the book exceeded my expectations I bet Scott Myer had A LOT OF FUN writing it Very meta and sometimes self referentialNo spoilers but expect #the universe to be rebooted After all being so meta the #universe to be rebooted After all being so meta the starts with the mention of Darth Vader and Kylo Ren If you are having doubts do read this one The series is back on track The timing in which I ve been reading this series is very fortunate My wife and I got into this series as a couple and since then have had two kids of our own The entire premise of this book is re earning the world building that has been established in the series by a whole new set of eyes In this case its kids kids of two of the wizards Martin and Gwen I can also appreciate how a of two of the wizards Martin and Gwen I can also appreciate how a of real time has passed since the original book in 2014 So the kids have ittle to no interest in the pop culture and nerdom that the wizard community have worked so hard into incorporating into their macros and overall The Bride of Willow Creek lifestyleSoet s not kid ourselves here This book is 100% fan service to all the readers and fans who want to revisit this world and its characters at east one time and Luke Daniels will continue to be great at voicing the characters in Audible An additional nice touch was employing the time travel mechanics to view some significant events in the series from a different perspective But I m completely okay with that and all things considered this is probably the best ways to have done so As usual the overall feel of the book is Although the stakes aren t that high the cosmic hijinks still ensue with the conflict It s a fun and guilty pleasure with this series So as ong as Scott Meyer keeps writing em I l keep reading em A blast While not especially memorable the sixth book in Scott Meyers s Magic 20 series is a ton of fun that comes very close to approaching topical humor but thankfully steers away before it s too ate It even pokes a tiny bit of fun at Book 4 which though still uite good is my The Lively Art of Writing least favorite of the bunch The Vexed Generation stars Martin and Gwen s teenage kids and focuses on their discovery of magic It also introduces some new villains and switches things up at the end I feel aittle goofy now for thinking of the first three books as a trilogy since that term implies a arger story arc Instead these stories play out ike shortened TV seasons of a show ike The Office where it s about enjoying the characters and their interactions than anything else I can dig that I enjoy these characters and the ighthearted feel of this universe I The Glass Ocean look forward to Book Heir parents'ives Along the way they find secrets ies magic time travel strange new friends stranger new enemies and a really weird dirigible which they're told repeatedly is not a blimp It is a twisted and bizarre trail that they hope will ead them to the man they blame for their parents' peril Phillip. .

Ronicles of Narnia but I really don care for The Horse and His Boy or Prince Caspian But if I had given up on the series after those two I never would have read The Voyage of the Dawn Treader which is my favorite book in the series Executive Summary A much better entry than its predecessor The new characters really breathed ife into a series that for me seemed to be running out of ideasAudiobook Luke Daniels does his usual fantastic job This series is currently an audible exclusive but even if it wasn t I d do this one in audio anyways He does a variety of voices and really adds that extra something to the book Full Review I really have enjoyed this series Some than others I find most of the main #Characters Kind Of Obnoxious But I Find #kind of obnoxious but I find humor pretty solid and the world building fantastic The time travel element has never been my favorite part and I feel The Leadership Gap: What Gets Between You and Your Greatness like theast book really took that to an extremeThankfully this book used it far The Leadership Gap less and instead focused onargely new characters There is Gilbert and Sid who have show up with cameos a few times in the series but have had very Zero to Five: 70 Essential Parenting Tips Based on Science (and What I've Learned So Far) little screen time I found them probably the mostikable of the magicians in the series so farAnd instead of the main focus being Martin Gwen and Phillip instead its Martin and Gwen s kids Mattie and Brewster They are typical teenagers and much Serenity Role Playing Game like the other characters in the series can be frustrating at time However it s a new kind of frustration and that plus Gilbert and SidI think this book works as kind of a soft reboot and Il be curious to see what he has in store for the next book A real return to form for the series And Luke Daniels continues to be stellar Like any 80s sitcom struggling with ratings the solution isSURPISE KIDS I have a soft spot for Meyer s Magic 20 series I think Meyer does as well as he keeps going back to these characters with inconsistent results While I generally enjoy the characters and their mildly backbiting dialogue with each other there s no real development in them or in their world Now the children here aren t a surprise per se but the twin children of Martin and Gwen and are the main protagonists as they slowly discover their parents magical abilities and must Save the Cupcake! learn them themselves to save their parents who have been magically frozen by forces unknown Unfortunately this novel drags SUBSTANTIALLY in the middle as the twins ping pong back and forth among wizards without accomplishing anything The penultimate conflict is decidedly mundane parliamentary procedure features heavily and while the final battle is amusing enough there was never any real narrative build to it so it just kind of happened Ultimately Meyerikes these characters and I understand why but after 6 books they really should be doing MORE Otherwise it s just Tressed to Kill (Southern Beauty Shop, literary arrested development which actually fits the characters well but doesnt make for a great novel Iiked this one better than. Best friend shows up at their house dressed in what appears to be a bathrobe The next thing Mattie and Brewster know their parents are frozen Tressed to Kill like human statues in theiriving room the guy in the bathrobe has vanished and they need to find answers fast The twins set off on a uest to discover the truth of Much better than Fight and Flight but still a mediocre entry into the Magic 20 series The first couple of books were great but it s really gone downhill from there And the author deciding to skip ahead some 15 or so years plus make the #kids the focus of this book wasn t #the focus of this book wasn t that great It was a decent story but didn t ive up to most of its predecessors HilariousWorld I The Dancer Who Flew: A Memoir of Rudolf Nureyev love the world building in this series it s so nerdy and so deceptively well thought out The time travel stuff will make your head spin but the internalogic is sound and it is well written This time around with the new pieces that we get it feels ike a next chapter for this series after 5 previous books Most of the new pieces are character based so I l get to those below but the new ocales are also interesting with Victorian England being one I ove me some steampunk SolidStory The story was not what
I Expected I Thought Thatexpected I thought that would get the same stuff again and that awesome but what I got was something that felt ike the next chapter of this world with Maddy and Brewster The change in point of view and the places that are new made this book feel fresh and it feels ike a good jumping on point for readers cause it does a The Gingerbread Man and the Leprechaun Loose at School lot of history dumping in a fun way to what happened before The story moves along well the humour is snide and uippy and the end is fun and expected Iike this series and injecting these new character into it really gave it a breath of fresh airCharacters Maddy and Brewster are well defined fun characters they are different enough from the rest of the cast of well established characters that they fit right in and also feel fresh I ove the dynamic that the they have with Sid and Gus and those two are also well done and interesting The old fan favourite characters are solid and I ove their interaction Tyler always makes me The Gingerbread Man Loose in the School laughcoldava LOLI The Cutting Room: A Novel of Suspense love this series this new one makes me want to keep reading this seriesOnward to the next book I originally was going to give this book four stars It has rekindled my enjoyment of the Magic 20 series after theast two had put a damper on it The reason for the bump up to five stars was one ine Mattie and Brewster are asking Phillip about the story behind why they have dragon pens and Phillip says There s a story there but it is too ong too fragmented and without clearly defined stakes This ine is genius For Scott Meyer to use a review of a previous book in the series in his current book especially one so critical was amazing I paused it the audiobook and istened to that part a couple times it was so good Yes this is the sixth book in the series but I think that Scott Meyer is back on track with it and I am excited to continue to read these books I am also now interested in reading some of his other books I would encourage anyone who reads this series to stick with it In any series you will find that you don t ike some of the books I ove The Ch. In the atest rollicking adventure in the Magic 20 series it’s time for the teenagers to show the adults how wizardry really worksMattie and Brewster are normal typical 16 year old twins who ive with their normal boring parents Martin and Gwen Banks Normal and boring that is until the day their father's. ,
