Description

Magic’s forbidden. It’s also the only thing that can save them…

"If you love good stories, well told, that capture the imagination, tickle the brain a bit, and keep you bugging the author for news about when the sequel is released, The Toymaker and the Magic Within is for you."

"This book is so fun and well written. I can’t believe this is the author’s first book! Schreiber weaves a fantastic tale of magic and family that will capture your heart and it is so fun to read. I highly recommend this book for anyone who loves fantasy and magic."

"Teenaged angst, warm families, epic battles. I couldn't stop reading, the story sucked me in and wouldn't let go... Did I mention magic? The most unique magic lies between the covers of this book. Although the intended audience is YA, this granny loved it and I have no worries letting my 9 to 13 year old granddaughters read it too. It is a story for all ages."

My teen grandaughter and I both really enjoyed this book. We read it together and thought the story was well constructed and the pacing was just perfect. We were sucked in on the first page (we really need toys like that) and held right to the last page.

This is a very heart warning novel that is also suitable for younger audience. It is a great debut that encompasses cosy fantasy, including family love as well as magical battles. The growth of characters is strong and the world building is beautiful. a worthy read.
