Have you ever imagined that you had magical powers? Well in this book there is a magical world and there are 2 brothers that are twins their names are Aaron and Alex Stowe. The 2 twins get separated and Aaron stays in Quill and they think they are sending Alex to a horrible place. But it is magical and he meets Mr.Today! He starts to live in a magical mansion with living statues. While Aaron figure out where they sent Alex. If you what to know more about the book read it.

I liked this book because it was magical and a bit funny. My favorite part was when they get eliminated and they see Mr. Today and he said ‘’how does it feel to be eliminated?’’ and there was a magical world. My favorite character is Simber because he has a tip of skin that nothing can destroy it and he can fly and he can hear things from far away that’s why he is my favorite character. When I was reading this book I felt like I was in the book.

I think people from 9 to 14 should read this book and people who like magic and books that are a bit funny. There is a riddles some times in these books there is also cool settings like in a secret hallway and other interesting ones. This book is really interesting.
