Editorial Reviews

Highschool, teacher - Lana Lykova
The author, with his great imagination, writing creativity, and sense of humor takes us through scenes full of surprises, unexpected turns, and new discoveries. Although this book is beneficial to everyone, I would especially recommend it to the young generation because it teaches them the great values of life.

Meet the Author

James D. Maxon (1977-Present) was born at Elmendorf Air Force Base in Anchorage, Alaska. His parents were divorced when he was just three-years-old. Raised in a strictly female household, James grew up in the midst of mental illness and depression. He, himself, struggled in school due to a learning disability. Without a positive male role model, James learned how difficult it can be for children to realize their true potential. Having acquired a love for fantasy at a young age, he began to write stories of his own, providing children and teens with messages of faith, hope, and insight. Overcoming his disability, James graduated college with a 4.0 GPA. He deepened his connection to the creative world by following a career in design. He now lives with his wife and daughter in a suburb of Minneapolis, Minnesota, and spends much of his free time applying his imagination to the real world.

    What to read after Harry Potter and Eragon

    As the son of a great wizard, Traphis doesn’t understand why his mother and father have forbidden him from learning magic. Raised to tend fields, he often dreams of a bigger life–one in which he performs in front of an awe-stricken crowd.

    A year after the death of his father, Traphis, now fifteen years old, spies his mother tossing a collection of magic books into a nearby creek. Unbeknownst to her, he is able to rescue them and read their contents hidden within his secret cave.

    Opening himself up to the world of magic, a dark presence surfaces–one which has been seeking to track him down for years. Hidden secrets of the past unfold as Traphis joins with other trainees in hopes of learning the skills necessary to survive. The more answers he uncovers the more mysteries arise, sending him down the path of a true wizard, which is far more dangerous than he ever imagined.

    I don't normally like fantasy, but this one was well worth a read

    Traphis is not the kind of book I normally read. However, I started this one and couldn't put it down. I found it very entertaining and, since it is fantasy, my brain was in overdrive as it pictured all the details of this creative world. I really enjoyed it and loved the way it kept me wanting to read more. I would recommend this book.
