The Rite of Wands, Mackenzie Flohr

Fantasy, Magic & Sword and Sorcery, Middle Grade, Teen & Young Adult

One boy…one Rite… And a world of deadly secrets that could change the course of history—forever

And so begins the tale of Mierta McKinnon. When a horrible fate reveals itself during his Rite of Wands ceremony, he must find a way to change not only his destiny but also the land of Iverna’s.

Forbidden from revealing the future he foresees to anyone, he is granted a wand and his magical powers, but still must master the realm of magic in order to save himself and those he loves.

But Mierta is not the only one with secrets…especially when it’s impossible to know who to trust.

The Rite of Wands is a thrilling, exciting and captivating story that will take readers on an incredible journey to a magical land in which the reader will encounter dragons, seers, witches and warlocks and Kings and Queens. The journey is an exceptional one and I guarantee that any reader (both young adults and adults) will adore the story because it fulfills everybody fantasy needs. I do not usually make comparisons between books but if you adore Harry Potter then you will love The Rite of Wands because it features a ceremony that is reminiscent of the one in The Goblet of Fire; besides, both books feature young protagonists!

The Rite of Wands follows two protagonists of the story, both of whom are young Warlocks. Mierta McKinnon is one of the Warlocks and early on in the novel the reader will follow Mierta as he attends the rite of wands ceremony. The ceremony is mandatory for all witches and warlocks and if they do not attend and participate, they will not be given their wand and will not be allowed to practice magic. During Mierta’s ceremony, he sees a terrifying future for both him and his land. Mierta must find out how he can stop this frightening future and change the course of his destiny and this book lovers is the premise of the story.

The story of The Rite of Wands is a thrilling one thanks to the enthralling and enigmatic characters as well as the unpredictable nature of the book that will have the readers turning the pages from beginning to end. From the description of The Rite of Wands alone I was hooked, I adore books follow a character on their journey and adore books filled with magic so to read this in the description meant that I had no choice but to read the book. When I started to read The Rite of Wands I noticed straight away that the land in the book is vast and it is full of many magnificent creatures and beings. The book’s land will be beyond readers wildest imaginations and will alight readers minds with amazement thanks to all of the glorious descriptions, and this is thanks to the talented author Mackenzie Flohr.

Mackenzie Flohr is an incredibly talented author who clearly knows how to write fantasy. It was evident to me from the start that Flohr is a passionate writer who surely loves fantasy herself, I can imagine Flohr being the type of author who writes fantasy stories as well as read them whenever she can, and that is one of the many qualities I love about Flohr as an author. What I love most about Flohr’s writing, however, is her remarkable descriptions because they genuinely amazed me. Fantasy novels, in general, are difficult to write because you have to transport the reader quickly and effortlessly but sadly this is rarely accomplished in a fantasy story but not with The Rite of Wands. The Rite of Wands is the way it is because Flohr knows what she is doing! Flohr knows how to whisk her readers away to a fantasy land and entice them with magnificent descriptions of dragons and other creatures and magical events. All of these descriptions were simply breath-taking and will suck the reader into the novel even further.

As The Rite of Wands is an excellent book that will captivate readers from beginning to end with its twisty-turny plot and thrilling narrative I, of course, have to award the book five stars! Please do have a read of The Rite of Wands because I promise you-you will not regret it!
