Young Samual longs to perform magic of his own. And what’s worse, he can’t seem to convince anyone that their beloved Town Magician is a trickster without an enchanted bone in his body. So when a wicked wizard challenges the pretender to a duel, Samual vows to keep his village safe by forcing the fraudster to rise to the challenge.
Determined to prevent disaster, he secretly shadows the phony protector during his training with the Grand Wizard. And when they barely escape an attack by dire wolves, Samual realizes he must partner up with his bitter rival to save their village. But keeping the truth hidden any longer may not help them outwit a powerful sorcerer.
With his town in grave danger, can Samual protect the ones he loves from the forces of evil?
Embracing the Magic is the enchanting first story in the Town Magician middle grade fantasy series. If you enjoy unlikely heroes, coming-of-age adventures, and spellbinding creatures, then you’ll love this fantastical tale.

Parents and teachers – I’ve included a section of words to know in the book. I’d like to encourage kids to read books that push and challenge them a bit. To help, I wanted to make sure any words that may be tough are explained.
To help encourage kids to use their imagination and create their own stories there is a section with story prompts based on the book. I would love to read anything that your kids write, so if you’d like to send them along, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
