Royal Institute of Magic: Elizabeth’s Legacy Book 1
Did you think Cinderella’s stepmother was uncaring? You haven’t met Ben Greenwood’s Step-grandmother yet! Ben’s parents are missing, and he resorts to sneaking in his friend’s houses for the night rather than returning to his grandmother’s. He has no clue that his past and future link to the original Queen of England, but he’s on a collision course with Elizabeth’s Legacy.
Everything changes when Ben and his chubby friend, Charlie, discover a most unusual subway system. The ride plummets them far below the world they thought they knew. On a hunch, Ben uses the rare cards he discovered among his parent’s things. Suddenly, they gain access to the Royal Institute of Magic. An adventure of unimaginable locations and magical creatures begins.
With parents accused on “Suspicion of High Treason,” Ben sets out to clear the names of Greg and Jane Greenwood. He’s desperate to find the loving parents who abandoned him. Did they leave on purpose or were they forced to flee? What does the tiny piece of cloth he uncovered at the scene of his parent’s disappearance lead him to discover?
I found the book to be original with diverse characters and enough action and mystery to entertain teens to adults.
About the Book
Two years after his parents’ sudden disappearance, Ben Greenwood stumbles upon a cryptic letter that could shed some light on their whereabouts. But before he can track them down, he’ll need to find the mysterious organization that sent the letter:
The Royal Institute of Magic.
To succeed, Ben will have to navigate a land filled with fantastic creatures and Spellshooters, where magic can be bought and sold, to unravel an ancient family secret that could hold the key to defeating an evil the Institute has been fighting for the last five hundred years.
Elizabeth’s Legacy is the first book in the Royal Institute of Magic series.
Elizabeth’s Legacy Lives on in the Series
Readers are blessed that Victor Kloss had time to write five more books in the series before his untimely death. The world has lost an engaging and imaginative fantasy writer, and I shall personally miss the stories he was never able to tell.
