    The Rite of Wands

    If your parents were warlocks and your grandparents were warlocks, wouldn’t that mean that you too would be a warlock? Not necessarily, according to the Rite of Wands. Those who are born warlocks are forced to take the Rite of Wands once they reach a certain age. If they pass, they get to proceed with their magic, but if they fail–magic is taken from them. What a horrible way to live life, knowing that you could have done something great but it was stripped away because of some choices you’d made early in life. The wisdom sets in the older you get, but these youths are forced to take the test none-the-less to see if they can handle their destiny. Flohr has an entertaining and action-packed young adult fantasy novel that will engulf readers into a new world. Mierta McKinnon has pass his Rite of Wands, only to be dreadfully concerned about the plague that kills him and his family as a young adult. He knows that Lord Kaeto’s warning to start researching apothecary using his father’s potion book is the right way to go, but he finds himself running into hardships in order to get there. Unable to stress the urgency of what was shown to him through his Rite of Wands, his father is reluctant to grant him access for fear of unleashing his own secrets. Within a neighboring kingdom, another warlock has been accepted by the king as his new soothsayer out of respect for his mother. He foresees the king’s untimely death, but is not believed and the story continues to follow both warlocks through their fascinating, yet harsh life of friendship, poison, death, and dishonor. Can both warlocks find a way to fight against the destinies that had been shown to them in their Rite of Wands in order to save their people and kingdom? Flohr has a fantastic story, filled with creativity, world-building, and originality. The pace is a bit slower in the beginning and quickens throughout the read. This is typically due to the fantasy content and consistency of world-building elements. The story appears to be written fairly well. Since this review compliments the audiobook, the narrator was phenomenal with his voice relay. The scenes were vivid for the imagination and characters were entertaining along with the corresponding background noises. This is the first installment in the Rite of Wands Series; therefore, you can jump right in. If you are interested in action and young adult fantasy, this may be a perfect fit. An audiobook was provided to Turning Another Page by Audiobookworm Promotions and in no way affects the honesty of this review. We provide a five-star rating to The Rite of Wands by Mackenzie Flohr.

    I read and reviewed 'The Rite of Wands' over a year ago, but only just picked up the audiobook. I've really only started listening to audiobooks in the last couple of months, and knowing how much I enjoyed reading the book, I was keen to add this to my collection. I was delighted to find the story to be just as fresh and exciting, and to be able to immerse myself in the world of Mierta McKinnon once again. This audiobook is excellent. The narration is clear and expressive, and the use of voice, tone and accent to develop the individual qualities of different characters is wonderful.
