Publisher's Summary

When Marcus's grandparents decide it would be good for him and his twin sister, Ellie, to tend the family business, a magic shop, the children are thrown into a world that they never knew existed. Not only is the family business a front, but Marcus learns that he has been marked as a dead man from the time he was born.
Marcus tries to develop his powers before the Dun-Bahr find him and assimilate the magic he was born with. Will he and his sister survive? Will they find their parents? First they must discover the secret his grandparents have been keeping from them all these years. It all comes down to what's hidden at the magic shop.

Wanting for more from The Magic Shop

What did you love best about The Magic Shop?

In a sense this is two reviews, one of the story and one of my first time experience with an audible book.

First, the story. As I started listening to the story of Marcus and Ellie I wondered if I had chosen a book from the teen-reader section. A couple of chapters into the book reassured me that Justin had indeed created a new world of wonder and adventure that was well suited to more mature readers of fantasy. The book starts as the two hero's are leaving high school and finding their place in the grown-up world of their caregivers - their grandparents. They are quickly, and innocently thrust into the world of real magic - disguised as mundane trickery and slight-of-hand. Their journey takes them into a very well developed universe of good and not so good where magic is currency and is spent as such - sometimes to dark means. Be forewarned, the story is not finished as it comes to the end.

Second, this is the first audible book I've listened to, my thanks to Justin for the experience. The story is well narrated by Steven Barnes, he captures the spirit of the story and it is hard to believe there are not a dozen people reading for the different characters. To listen to the story being read takes around 9 hours (I didn't find out I could speed it up a bit until I was 8 hours into it - duh), and I kept thinking that I could likely read the story myself in 2 or 3 - but I certainly couldn't have read it while driving to work and it did make the commute go very quickly. This will not be my last audible book - thanks for the heads up and the experience!
