There are lots of different kinds of magic in the world of literature. There is magic made with wands, there is magic made with minds and bodies, and there is magic made with nature.

There are lots of different kinds of magic in the world of literature. There is magic made with wands, there is magic made with minds and bodies, and there is magic made with nature. Magisterium, a new book by Jeff Hirsch, uses bodies and nature. The book has action, adventure, and lots of cliffhangers.

This is a story about a girl named Glenn whose father gets arrested because he found something that the government wants. She is forced to take her best friend across the border, a place that is rumored to have monsters and ghosts.

When they cross the border Glenn’s friend gets shot, so a half human heals him and joins them in their journey to the town of Bethany with many big surprises. They meet an old woman who teaches Glenn about affinity, or nature magic, and shows her how to use it. The rest is the most exciting part, so I cannot tell.

I would rate this book four and a half stars out of five because it was exciting and cool, but there were some confusing sections that showed up and disappeared. There is a lot of scary parts, so when it comes out in October, I would recommend it for ages 12 and up. Anyone under 10 will find it too confusing and scary. Everyone else would find it only scary and a bit confusing. I would also recommend this to kids and adults who have read The Hunger Games, because it has the same dark feeling. So come October, this will be a great book to read!
