Tim's family reunion is nothing like he imagined, and there has never been more at stake. Still struggling to cope with the tremendous responsibility of wielding magic, he realizes that his choices and his powers may have been to blame for his mother's disappearance all along. With his trust in Dr. Rose fading and his friendship with Ellie falling apart, Tim is at a daunting crossroads with little hope and no clear path forward.

    You Don't Read Comics - Rick Lopez Sep 5, 2019

    This series continues to deliver the heart with each new chapter and truly envelop the reader within the wonder and mystery of this magical world. With apparent correlations between the Young Merlin Timothy Hunter and the 'Boy Who Lived,' this series continues to completely separate itself from the prose and cinematic contemporary.

    Feet firmly rooted in the real world and still there is a compelling story to tell. Even in the everyday humdrum family life, with no glamorous distractions, there are deeper dilemmas and heavier implications. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Sep 3, 2019

    I continue to really enjoy Books of Magic even if doesn't feel like it's gotten out of a "B" level grading for its run. It's building a slow and steady course here in a really good way but it also feels like it really needs to start moving Tim forward soon so that he's actively doing instead of this passive approach. There's a lot to like with how this all unfolds here and it's understandable his reactions toward his mother as even he realizes he's putting on some blinders with it. Howard does a solid job with the book once again and I really enjoy Fowler's artwork as it just clicks with this kind of work. But I long for a Books of Magic series that has Tim being a far more involved character since this still feels like the same Tim from the 90's miniseries. Read Full Review
