Overview

When Nikki Murrow failed her first High School debating match she did what anyone would do – she hid in a closet. She found comfort hiding among the mops and cleaning supplies, but she also found two imps – tiny creatures from a magical kingdom who lead her on a strange journey into the Realm of Reason.


There is Fuzz, a grumpy imp with a fondness for breaking the rules. And Athena, a model of impish manners, decorum and spotlessly clean clothes. Together they convince Nikki to join them in the battle against the king's evil advisor, Maleficious.


In her debate class, Nikki learned the value of logic and reason, but who knew her ability to formulate a hypothesis would help a mud-splattered Knight redeem his tarnished reputation? Or that her knowledge of logical fallacies would rid the Realm's Haunted Hills of ghosts?


Maleficious's hold on the king is strong, but Nikki and the imps are determined that the Realm will not fall into his clutches. Will their mastery of logic rid the kingdom of the ignorance Maleficious is spreading, or will the inhabitants of the Realm fall back under the sway of centuries-old superstition?


Castles and Chemistry is the second book in the Logic to the Rescue series. It continues Nikki’s adventures in the Realm of Reason.

Editorial Reviews

Beth Stinson
This is a fiction book which mixes logic in with the story, making it an entertaining read for teens in the 12 to 14 age group. Maybe a little younger if you have a smart 10 or 11 year old.

The two imps in the story reminded me a little of Dobby the elf from the second Harry Potter book. The main character, Nikki, is a good role model for teenage girls. She's very level-headed and wants to be a chemist like her Mom.

A useful and fun guide to logic and critical thinking.
