Casters of Doovik by McKenzie Wagner Review

About the book:
All her life, Meg has lived within Doovik’s walls—walls meant to keep the dangerous creatures outside from coming in. But when a curse drives her from Doovik, Meg and her friends must battle mythical monsters and follow clues to break the spell and get home. From the author of the Benotripia series, this thrilling fantasy will have your heart racing!
About the author:
McKenzie Wagner is 14 years old and already has four published books under her belt. An ambitious girl who began writing at the age of seven, McKenzie is best known for “The Magic Meadow and the Golden Locket,” published at age 10, and the Benotripia trilogy, the last book being released when she was 13. Inspiring thousands of kids to follow their dreams, McKenzie has visited several elementary schools across the state of Utah and done numerous book signings in Costco, Barnes & Noble, and Hasting stores. When she isn’t writing, McKenzie spends her time reading, acting, singing, hoping Peter Pan will take her to Neverland, and adding to her collection/army of stuffed animals.
My Review:
This is a really great story for kids. It has a great world that kids can escape to. There are halflings and curses and myths. There is definitely no lack for imagination. The author is only 14! I think that this gives her insight to other kids that adults just don't get. There are also parts where the reader questions right from wrong, and I even thought about if stealing is ever right. I am giving this book a 4/5. I was given a copy to review, however all opinions are my own.
