My Review:

I’ve had this book on my shelf for some time and I am a big fan of magicians and Houdini. I was looking forward to read this book to not only introduce to my kids but to find a fun series for myself to read. This was a cute book but I found it to be a bit slow and some of the story seemed rather choppy to me. I found it easy to follow along but Harry got on my nerves a lot more than I would have wanted. He was a bit spontaneous and would dart off without telling his friends where he was going. Even when they had a great plan that would work perfectly he would find some way to ruin it but something about this story just seemed not put together. Maybe I was expecting a lot more magic or escapes. The beginning was very exciting but as I got to the middle of the book it kind of just fell off and it was a lot of running around. I did enjoy the idea of the story and the twists were cool but like I said something seemed missing.

I have every intention of reading the next book in this series, the end was a To Be Continued so I can’t wait to see what happens to Harry and his friends, they look like they are about to go on a wild ride. This book would be great for kids and adults might enjoy it. I did like this book I think it just felt like it was missing something that I am hoping will be in book #2 🙂
