    Very Entertaining

    I found this to be a very entertaining book. I have read other books by Morgan Rice, and as I read, I found that this one increasingly climbed to the top of my list of favorite books by Morgan Rice. While reading I found myself reminiscent of Harry Potter and the Wizard of Oz as the story progressed. I was captured by the plight that Oliver found himself in. The supporting characters seemed well rounded and meaningful. I look forward to continuing this series.

    Slow start, overall a good read.

    I found the first half of the novel to be quite tedious to read, I really struggled to get through the first half. Second half was more jam-packed with more exciting action, which I read quite quickly. It was definitely an easy read and enjoyable story line, but I wish there had been more detail in the character development and during Oliver's time at school, that was the most interesting part, I thin a lot of things could have been explored more deeply while he was at the school, instead of having his miserable home life dragged out for the first half. Then Oliver seemingly went from zero to one hundred with a turn of the page. Overall though I enjoyed the book, and am looking forward to reading the rest of the series. Definitely geared towards younger readers, book was short and level of reading was easy.

    Slow Start, Great Read

    I wasn’t sure about this at first & was a bit impatient to see where the story would go but it is written very well & before I knew it I was totally invested in the story. One can’t help but notice some similarities to Harry Potter, A young boy with a miserable life finds out he’s much ‘more’ Than normal etc. But that’s where the similarities end. I’m going to go read book 2 now. :))

    A must read if you enjoy adventure and fantasy!

    This is a good first book for a new series. The start is a little slow as the plot and characters develop but once the adventure starts the storyline pulls you in. From the beginning to the end, the plot twists and turns. I hope the next books in the series delve more into the schools history and some of the other characters backgrounds. The story makes for a suspenseful and exciting read. I received a free copy but my review is voluntary. I definitely want to read more books in this series!

    Exciting start to a fantastic premise

    Full disclaimer; I was lucky enough to be sent a copy of this book in order to review it. Having said that, the magic factory is most certainly a fun read, if you like an analytical protagonist that is finding their way in the world. Starting out rather grim, we meet our protagonist Oliver loathing his current family situation, with not much hope for improvement. I found the book at first to be very bleak, I was unsure how the starting events would connect to the premise of the book by I shall not spoil it by saying that it is a quick turn around for Young Oliver who suddenly finds himself thrust into a world currently beyond his understanding, where he must slowly learn in order to protect his formidable mind from exploding. (Literally) A slower start ultimately gives way to a huge universe with great potential. Looking forward to the next in this series 7/10 😀
