    Description

    In the latest rollicking adventure in the Magic 2.0 series, it’s time for the teenagers to show the adults how wizardry really works.

    Mattie and Brewster are normal, typical 16-year-old twins who live with their normal, boring parents: Martin and Gwen Banks. Normal and boring, that is, until the day their father's best friend shows up at their house - dressed in what appears to be a bathrobe. 

    The next thing Mattie and Brewster know, their parents are frozen like human statues in their living room, the guy in the bathrobe has vanished, and they need to find answers - fast.   

    The twins set off on a quest to discover the truth of their parents' lives. Along the way they find secrets, lies, magic, time travel, strange new friends, stranger new enemies, and a really weird dirigible (which, they're told repeatedly, is not a blimp). It is a twisted and bizarre trail that, they hope, will lead them to the man they blame for their parents' peril: 

    Phillip.

    Not very good at all

    Boring and the voices grew tiresome. Hopefully this series is dead. The first 3 were good but these last 3 are just bad.

    It was fine

    It was fine, but there is no fear for any of the characters, nothing is ever on the line, and it feels like everyone in the book hates each other. There is little comradery, and it seems that friendship is commonly mistaken as a reason to constantly insult each other throughout the book and it just kinda gets old. Got a bit too political at the end, it was annoying to say the least, I want a good story, if I wanted politics I'd go listen to a podcast.

    Meyer brings the series back from the edge

    Man am I glad I enjoyed this book. I love the series and this book was make or break for me. This is not the best in the series, but I laughed and was entertained. Meyer quickly addresses the time travel issue that was getting cumbersome and drops the deep morale dilemmas that weighed down the last 2 books, The funniest part was when Meyer toyed with some near 4th wall breaks with nods to the critiques of the 4th book in the series and addressing politics in today's charged climate. While a fun read, fans of the series should be ready for a slightly different feel. The characters we know take a back seat to the twins for the majority of story, but is familiar enough (especially the last few chapters) for fans of the series to feel comfortable.
    My only critique of the book is it borrows heavily from the plot of the book 1, just swapping out the protagonist and villain. This book feels like a palette cleanser for author and audience. Meyer seems to purposely not take any chances in this book and fall back to something he knows is going to work, so I had to give the story a 4 out of 5, but if Meyer needed a bit of a crutch to get this series back on track, I'll gladly take it.

    TLDR: This book is good, not great. Gives hope the series can return to living up to the first 3 books.

    Bad

    Just plain bad story writing.

    The characters are increasing dumb and one dimensional. Honestly they have unlimited resources and time, yet they have not progressed at anything at all.

    The story is forced along a path so badly that it immediately pulls you out of any immersion. There are pointless ineffectual conversation/trips to try and get a one sentence point across. The bad guys are your typical “I want to rule the wold for no real reason” cliche. And the set ups to allow the kids to save the day unimaginative.

    The action scenes are boring, slow, and contain far too much talking back and forth. They are so predictable that you can might as well skip right on by.

    The author tries to point fun at or maybe acknowledge criticism from previous books, but doesn’t actually try to improve his writing.

    Britt is still probably the most evil... or at least horrible person in the series, yet everyone loves her and never calls her out on her BS. She literally uses time travel to steal credit for others coding breakthroughs (it’s okay she credits them on a tiny out of the way plaque while telling people she did it all herself), prop herself up as an all knowing guru, gets herself a government job to waste taxpayer money on her personal whims, use her power to torment those below her, and rewrites her own memory to block out her own failures while pinning the blame on Philip.

    Might been an actual good story to finally make her the villain and have some lasting sacrifices after taking her down. Don’t think that will ever happen. I’m sure the next book will have another petty dumb villain beat up the “heroes” till he pulls a cliche villain mistake and is taken down.

    Terrible

    I enjoyed the first two books, this series just is gotten worse since. It's a dumb plot that seems just so the author can soapbox their views.

    All the possibilities of being time traveling immortal beings with control over reality... and this what we got?

    Write real stories, if you want to do an opinion piece, write a newspaper or a blog. This is probably the last book I buy if I don't return it.

    This series is just not the same

    Seems like the author has lost his way after book 3. This latest installment is really simple and not very funny. The women characters continue to be annoying and the men simpletons. I think I’m done with the series over all.

    could have been so good

    the not so subtle political digs in the story were a major disappointment. I look to these types of books as an escape. Put a warning label on your rants. i.e. "Please skip the next chapter if you are reading this book strictly for enjoyment" SERIOUSLY!

    More insertion of political ideology in a novel

    Its like the author cant help himself.
    He very clearly leans left politically & that's fine, but when a book about time travelling wizards keeps making references to how evil Republicans are, Donald Trump & other sets of ideas considered "wrong speak" by modern progressive Democrats ..it becomes very tiring to the point of predictability.
    Similarly all female characters are daring, smart, attractive bastions of logic, while the male characters are harmless, invariably bumbling idiots that cower at their wrath.
    This is supposed to be a novel, not a political raly. Leave that shit at home man.

    Frustrating!

    This series has been a mixed bag since book 3.
    I’m sad the author has taken to interjecting politics into his book, and even though it wasn’t overly done, it’s there enough to definitely stick out.
    Also, Martin is the best character, in this volume (again), he takes a backseat. Every scene his character is in is just better. Let’s have another book centered around him. Also more Jimmy and the side characters like Roy, Jeff, etc. That is what made the early books so entertaining!
    Luke Daniels legitimately SAVES this series time and again. He is so good that he makes up for the bad characters (the Brit’s) and scenes.
