Quotes & Awards

  • “A rewarding fantasy, especially for fans.” 


  • “With the clipped accent and lilting intonation of Welsh, John Keating gives voice to the wide assortment of extended family, school friends, and villagers caught up in dangerous events beyond their control.” 


  • “Nimmo has skillfully woven the ancient story into the modern one, making it accessible to those who do not know the legend. This satisfying fantasy introduces young readers to the genre.”

    " Not quite as fantastic as the previous two--a little slower perhaps, but still wonderful. My kids wished the series kept going. So did I. "

    " Written nearly a decade before Harry Potter appeared on the scene, the Magician Trilogy remains fresh and interesting, rich with Welsh history and complex, appealing characters. Nimmo fits tremendous stories into small books. Highly recommended to anyone who enjoys flat-out great stories. "
