A new storyline begins! After running away to Faerie, Tim Hunter finds himself forgetting why he fled home in the first place. Not that he's complaining! Magic is so much more fun when consequences and math quizzes are no longer one's main concerns. But what's Titania, queen of the faeries, want with the young Tim Hunter, and why does it have Rose more protective of the boy magician than ever?

    This title is going from strength to strength. Each titbit of information is keeping me intrigued as to how it will be resolved and each dilemma has me guessing as to how it will progress. This is a sure sign of great storytelling. Read Full Review

    This is the most straightforward narrative of the line, but it might have the biggest mysteries and most compelling lead of all of them. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge May 28, 2019

    I continue to enjoy Books of Magic but I keep feeling like it really needs to have that moment where everything clicks. Something big to really drive the narrative forward. We've had a lot of good character material and exploring what's going on and having Tim and Rose on their journey definitely helps. We also get some additional time on Earth in this issue as we see how his father is handling everything, the investigators continuing to inch forward, and a tease of bigger plans afoot. But it's all just out of reach, without enough weight to really make it feel connected and reay to make this a story worth reading and investing time in. Read Full Review
