Publisher's Summary

A debut novel from a teen author! Teen author J.R. King completed his debut novel at 12. He spent a year and a half rewriting and revising. Listen to the book and see for yourself why publishers all around the world are so excited about this book. J.R. King's 12-year-old antihero turned hero, Arianna Kelt, is a reformed thief and wizard seer. Now you wouldn't think being a wizard seer would be such a big deal, but it is a big deal to the Wizards of Skyhall. For you see, those particular wizards are sworn to protect the citizens of Earth from all the things they shouldn't know about, namely wizards, warlocks, and all the creatures of the magical realms that no humans should know exist.
Certainly Arianna would like to blame all her troubles on donuts, the vile, corrupting food that has caused her problems more than once, but she couldn't. Well, not quite. The truth was she got nabbed sneaking a piece of cherry cobbler, and just when she thought her luck was running out, she saw the wizard, and of course, seeing the wizard got her into a whole new barrel of problems.
Full of humor, action, and adventure, you'll be rolling on the floor with laughter, sitting on the edge of your seat, and turning pages so fast the Law Gnomes will be out to get you too. Enter Skyhall and become a wizard if you dare!

Way better than expected

I read this because I like to read what my kids read, and didn't expect to like it, but it's excellent! It's unbelievable to think that at just 14 years of age, JR King could write a novel of this depth and expansive visualization. Ron Knowles does a wonderful job of reading the book and bringing all of the characters to life. The voice of Digorence the gnome will stay with you long after the book is done.

A great read for young and young at heart alike. I can't wait to get to the 2nd book!

Wonderfully inventive!!

Our family just loved this! The story is brilliantly written by an incredibly talented young author and well read by a talented narrator. We enjoyed this more than all the kids books we've listened to previously and liked it much better than Artemis Fowl and A Series of Unfortunate Events.

An excellent choice for anyone who loves Artemis Fowl, Harry Potter and such!
