Very interesting book with excellent character depth along with stunning visualizations. I easily read the book in one reading and was amazed how fast the time went. Dylan Murphy has several characters that we can all identify with. Having a local author covering the Denver area is a bonus. I can easily see this book as a series and can not wait to see what adventures await Dylan. With Harry Potter concluded this new hero will fill this magical void and provide teens a role model for the future.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

A thirteen year olds review on Dylan Murphy and the Magic Touch
Overall I enjoyed the book and it was really good. Though the beginning started out s little choppy (like most books do) once the real story started that problem disappeared. It was a really good book, the plot was beautiful, it did a great job with painting the picture of Eldora, and I can't wait for the next one to come out. I do a little writing in my free time so when I saw the ending I smiled because that's how I ended one of my stories. (With a "To be continued.") What I loved the most though has next to nothing to do with the story; the setting. I told my friends about this and we all thought it was amazing that every time the name of an area would come up we knew where it was and we could even say we lived there.

Wow! What a fun read! The author really has a winner here. If you're looking for a fun romp through a magical world, then look no further. In this book, the author has put an original spin on the essence of magical powers, giving the story a fresh new twist. He also manages to blend the real and magical worlds in a unique way which helps you identify more closely with the main characters: they truly are as real as you and me (no need for a prized lineage or a high midi-chlorian blood count!). If you have kids who don't like to read, hand them this book. They will more than likely change their minds! Is this the next Harry Potter? Who knows, it certainly could be. Although it is a fun book for young and old alike, and full of magic, one thing it is NOT is "another" Harry Potter. This is a truly original story and a lot of fun to read. Once you start, and your internal movie projector gets going, you will quickly get attached to the characters and won't want to put the book (or should I say kindle?) down.
The only down side: his next book won't be available until next year. In the meantime, grab a copy, enjoy it, and spread the word!
